I have lived at Carriage Creek Apartments for 5 years. I have enjoyed every bit of it. One of the best apartments i have lived in. The buildings and grounds are kept very clean. The staff at Carriage Creek is wonderful.

      I currently live in Carriage Creek and I can honestly say that I am enjoying my stay. I was concerned, initially, with the abrupt change in management, but I have nothing but the best confidence in the current staff; when called upon, they have met my issues with the utmost urgency.

        I hate it! Management is rude and unprofessional. There is a Bed Bug infestation at the building, they do not complete work orders in a timely fashion, it always stank in the building and the elevators never work properly. I am so GLAD my lease ends in 2 months, I have never lived someplace that does not listen to your needs or try and take care of the problems. There is consistantly piss in the elevator or hallway and kids are always playing in the lobby, outside, and hallways of the building. They have security but they don't work and the parking lot is lite at all. I would not recommend this to someonw unless they just looking for somewhere cheap to stay and don't care about the surroundings.

            OMG RUN

            Don't believe the advertisment THERE IS NO POOL AND NO CLUBHOUSE FOR YOU TO USE. The pool has not worked for at least 3yr. and when I ask to rent the clubhouse for a meeting, i was told no, yet the manager Lisa had a wedding reception for one of her family members. When I first moved here it was ok, but since then, omg I hate it. Management is RUDE. Esp. Rosemary and Lisa. They don't fix anything, Theo is great, but he is only one man, the other guys are scary and leave a mess after they TRY and fix something.

              Horrible

              I lived at Carriage Creek for three years and can honestly say that the building is in horrible condition due to the tenants in the building. I have witnessed children detroying the property, young adults playing in the hall and parking lots. The maintenance staff is always on the go because some idiot is either urinating in the elavator or taking a dump on the steps. I wouldn't recommend living here unless you are having financial issues and this fits your budget at the moment. Long term, find some place else. I've never lived in the projects but I have visited friends who have and this building is about three steps away from being considered a project apartment. The thing that really gets me is that the management team is aware of the tenant issues but are constantly going up on the rent.

                DONT DO IT!!!!!!

                Never in my long time of renting have i had a more terrible experience. This place is a joke. To say the least. The assistant property manager has no sense of urgency when it comes to anything. If you need something fixed.... Hell if you need management period.... DONT HOLD YOUR BREATH. This priperty goes thru managers like my son goes thru pampers. The office staff is rude. They dont replace your carpet. They do fixer upper jobs on everything which in the end reaults in you having to wait another 6 months to have the problem fixed. Random people in and out of the building due to other tenants leaving the door open with something propped in it. They lie on their website and say they have a pool and they dont. Your heat in the winter DOES NOT work half the time. Which is a shame for those whose heat is included in the rent. I have never been this unsatisfied. If you are looking for a HOME a place of comfirt and peace, this is not the place. This is just not the place for anybody. If you have no where elae to go ok. But i… See More>

                  I AM CURRENTLY A TENANT AT CARRIAGE CREEK APARTMENTS, AND MY STAY HAS BEEN TERRIBLE!!!! THE MANANAGEMENT OFFICE MAKES A MILLION AND ONE PROMISES BUT NEVER STANDS ON THEM. I LIVE IN THE WALK-UPS AND I'VE HAD A MILLION AND ONE PROBLEMS SINCE DAY ONE OF MY LEASE!!! MY BEDROOM HAS BEEN FLOODED EVERYTIME IT RAINS AND NOT ONCE DID THEY TREAT IT LIKE AN EMERGENCY!!! THE FIRST TIME THE FLOODING STARTED THEY SAID THEY NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM BEFORE, WHICH I NEVER BELIEVED, BUT AFTER TALKING TO A NEIGHBOR I LEARNED THAT THIS PROBLEM OCCURED WAY BEFORE I EVEN MOVED IN WITH A PREVIOUS TENANT!!! I LITERATELY HAD TO CALL THE MANAGEMENT OFFICE EVERYDAY TO GET SOMETHING DONE!!! HE CONSTANTLY PROMISED ME HE WOULD GET SOMEONE OUT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BUT MEAN WHILE MY BEDROOM FURNITURE IS CONSTANTLY GETTING DAMAGED!! FINALLY SOMEONE CAME OUT BUT OBVIOUSLY THEY DIDN'T RESOLVE THE PROBLEM BECAUSE THE VERY NEXT TIME IT RAINED MY BEDROOM WAS FLOODED AGAIN!!! FINALLY AFTER MONTHS HAD PASS THEY FINALLY FOUND WHERE THE LEAK WAS COMING FROM AND IT WAS A CRACK IN THE FOUNDATION (MY BEDROOM WALL)!!!!!! THEY TOUR THE WALL DOWN IN MY BEDROOM AND LEFT… See More>

                    A Great Starter.

                    My main concern with this complex was the income guidelines. That want you to stay within a strict budget with no overage yet the rent is in a compative market. Management was always helpful and polite. Although it took time for maintance to respond to a few compliants once they arrived they actually fixed the problem correctly. The money for the insurance bond that is not refundable is crazy. But other than that I LOVED my place. Home is what you make out of your four floors.

                      For all that compare this place to the projects, PLEASE STOP! You have obviously never LIVED in the projects.<br><br>THE GOOD - I've lived at Carriage Creek Apartments for four years now. For the amount of rent that I pay, compared to the other two apartment complexes near the train station, I guess things are ok. Iýve had a chance to meet a few good people, who I see every blue moon. The location to the train station is not that bad. It's a solid 15 minute walk away. And the rent is the lowest for the amount of square footage, when compared to the neighboring apartment complexes. And Diane is the best, so please get off the management.<br><br><br>THE BAD - For a one year period, I had the opportunity to live in one of the walk-ups, and the experience there was hell. I spent most of my day at work but, on any of my off days, I heard nothing but screaming from the neighbors. On most nights, when coming home from school at 10 pm, I would hear music so loud; I had no choice but to close the window. … See More>

                        I have recently made the decision to move out of carriage creek apartments, only becuase I feel that I needed more space, as my family continues to grow. I enjoyed my stay @ this aprtment complex and will refer it to others in the future.

                          Very nice place to live

                          A nice quiet place to live. Don´t be discouraged by the other negative reviews, because they were probably evicted. There is no such place as PERFECT LIVING. Maintenance is great and the people in the office are nice. People get attitude and taking care of business mixed up. I thought at first management was rude, but their not. The office is a place of business, so thats whats conducted there...BUSINESS! Sometimes you got to be a @#$%& to get the job done. From what I seen when I was there, it wasn´t the complex itself, it was people who thought they were owed something. Mainly young minded adults and the younger crowd, whose parents didn´t prepare them on the REAL WORLD, and on how to carry, behave, and conduct their selves in the REAL WORLD.

                            WHAT A JOKE

                            where do you start, first the manager is a @##$$. Personally im surpised that she hasnt been assaulted. i know people that decided against renting here because of her first impression. People have been getting stuck on the elevators for months. the fire alarm used to go off at any time day or night at least 3 times a wk. Rent goes up every year. They say they are not subsidised by the state but you cant make to much money and live here. there is nowhere for kids to play so they play in the halls and everywhere else. maintaining the building was actually great. except for the urine in the elevators. the washers eat up your money. your neighbors can be ------ fab. you can find a better for apt for the amount of rent you pay. i dont recommend this place. how and why they keep the same person in upper management i will never know since so many people complain about her including her own staff. i wont be renewing my lease and please dont sign your own.

                              DO NOT CALL THIS HOME!

                              I lived at Carriage Creek for two years. The apartments are small. The carpet in the buildings are horrible! The color scheme reminds you of prison or a dorm facility and the color scheme does not match. Fights break out and the alarm system goes off 3-4 times a day sometimes which are proven to be false. Elevators are either broke or very slow, most times very nasty. The external doors to the building locks don´t work properly and the key gets stuck in the lock. They can do better with landscaping. In the foyer, they can do better with the security camera sitting in a cutout hole in the wall, so so tacky! <br> <br>The good points are that the Management does a good job. The clubhouse is nice. Maintenance respond to your request in a timly fashion. They do need to upgrade fixtures in and outside the apartments though. <br> <br>The worst points comes when moving out. They critique everything as if you damage things personally. They over bill you and don´t return your full security deposit back, even though you return the apartment in better condition before you got it. <br> <br>Never live here!

                                I have lived at Carriage Creek for four years. I was here when the new management staff took over in 99. There has been a significant improvement from what they bought and where it is today. The buildings look better and cleaner, the landscaping is nice, the maintenance staff responds to your request in a timely manner. The management staff addresses all issues and questions even if they must say no to you. I enjoy it here and plan to stay and watch more improvements.

                                  This is one of the worst places to live in Richton Park. The heat doesn´t work most of the times and when you call for maintenance you might get somebody to come and you might not. Management is rude the elevators are broke most of the times. You can forget about the secured front door, your key gets stuck all of the time and the door won´t open.

                                    The apartment complex appeared very nice. I saw an apartment in a nicer building. It was not in the building where my apartment was located. It was across the street. It was smooth sailing. There are two towers and several garden style buildings. When I saw my apartment and how it didn´t have the modern updates, I was quite upset. Also, the building was horrible. The foyer wasn´t as nice as the one across the street and the elevators always smelled like urine. The lights were always broken or out in the elevators. I obviously lived in the building that the other reviewer lived in. My rent was paid in the drop box. Five days later I received a notice stating it wasn´t paid. The manager was very rude. The washers were always broken and I received refunds from another company. The fire alarm always went off. There was always someone getting high and no one ever cared. The children play through the halls all summer long. The owner of the management company made promises he didn´t keep after the carbon monoxide… See More>

                                      I have lived in Carriage Creek for 1 year. This is the worst apartment complex I ever lived in. The management is horrible. Everyone in the rental office is very rude. The complex is supposed to have 24 hour maintenance, don´t let anything happen when the office is closed becuse you will not get in contact with anyone. The elevators in the bulding are always out of order and they never keep up with the elevator inspection every six months. It´s always a problem with the laundry facilities. When you inform maintenace about the laundry room they advise that they don´t own the washers and give you a number to call. (if it´s always a problem with the washers that they don´t own, they need to get new washers in the complex.) We often have a false fire alarm to go off every other day (lord forbid a real fire to happen) The people that moved in with me, moved out with me. I should have took note when I moved in a young lady was moving out and said "good luck you´re going to hate it here. I could go on… See More>
