Resident 2019

Over the last year I have lived at the Covington the maintenance has been nearly non existent. There is peeling paint on the ceiling, the hot water has gone out several times and the heat hardly works. All last winter there was very little heat… See More >

    Lived here for a year. Neighborhood is dirty and crime-ridden. Heard gunshots many times. Lobby was clean but rest of building was either full of spiders or just dirty, most floors smell like old laundry. Beware of Erin if she still works there. She seemed… See More >

            This place looks nice when you just see the units. But the management lie, never do any work, dont care about the tenants. They nickle and dine you for everything that comes free at other apts. Then they never do any work… See More >

              In short.. yes the units are nice, but for the money and mis-management.. this is NOT worth it. Just google the management company and also the building name. You will find mixed reviews. The good reviews.. are from people who move in and never… See More >

                Love the appliances but the maintenance is not that great....paint splattered all over the floors and the THICK layers of paint start to peel and crack. Also, I did have a cockroach problem in which they have someone come in once a month… See More >

                          Myself and another friend moved into this place from Missouri, basically blind. Normally, that wouldn't even be an option, but having spoken constantly to the office staff almost a week straight I became very comfortable in initially choosing this as my apartment when I arrived.… See More >
