Dayton Court Apartments
Former Resident · 2011 - 2018
I lived at Dayton Court for a LONG time. I was very happy with my 1 bed/1 bath apartment with a balcony. The reason I stayed so long is due the fact that the apartments are affordable, in an EXCELLENT location (buses, multiple El stops, shopping, the lake, dining, grocery stores, doctors, cleaners, etc. are all a minutes' walk away), and especially because the maintenance staff was always very helpful and responsive. Same with the office staff. Any time I had a question, they were readily available and very kind. I lived in the center of the building so it was pretty quiet - you can still hear some ambient city noise and, depending on the wind, sometimes you can hear concerts from Wrigley too! The interior of the apartments are not modern at all but I love the character of old buildings. And I think the reason the apartments are so affordable is probably because they don't upgrade the appliances or fixtures very often. The radiator heat works great and I never had a single problem with my appliances. Once, I couldn't figure out how to light the pilot light on the stove and the maintenance man came right over and did it for me. He even helped me changed some hard-to-reach lightbulbs which is not in his job description and I really appreciated. I always felt very safe at these apartments and I honestly miss my cozy, single-girl home!
