    Pretty decent place to live, except the fact the they keep increasing the rent each time I renew my lease despite that fact people are constantly getting stabbed or shot in the area. You would thing with the amount of iolent crime un the area rent wouldn't keep going up. Its like they don't want people to stay for more than a year or two.

      I thought this unit was perfect virtually but when I came in person, the unit seemed clean but once vacuuming and cleaning shower and shower rod it wasn't cleaned thoroughly. I found a dead bug. Also lots of trash is left on the ground. People are pretty nice but not happy about certain things that could have been mentioned prior to me moving in and signing lease.

        Over all pretty good. Mostly quite and peaceful. Parking has become a problem, twice I have not been able to get in my car because the person parked so close to me. New white stripes on the par kings lots would be a big help. It will be three year on my 31 that I have lived here. I have had a rental increase every year. I'm on social security and if it keeps up, I will be forced to move to a facility based on income. I

          Ac and heat constantly go out. I've been left in the cold overnight and gotten heatsick during the day. There's really no excuse when you call around 3 for emergency maintenance and they never show. Ridiculous.

              The internet service which is provided at additional cost is not very reliable, despite upgrades. The house cable, which is included at no additional charge, has also gone out a number of times, and the response on that was slow. Otherwise, general upkeep of the apartments is good. Exterior maintenance is quite good. Individual apartment maintenance response is generally quick.

                Only expect 2-10% of the internet you pay for, and don't expect beacon hill to do anything about it. Everything is painted over and left alone unless you make it clear in person something needs to be fixed. When I moved into my apartment, my bedroom closets needed to be fixed before we could even put weight on them, and we found a handful of other things that were covered up to look nice until the problem was found, like our kitchen having a giant hole in the flooring from water damage, our toilet handle snapping, and some other things. The biggest issue is definitely the ------ internet, I pay $55 a month for internet and have never gotten more than 20% of the promised amount of internet download and upload speed. Unless you had no other option like me, I recommend finding somewhere else to live.

                  I've really enjoyed living at beacon hill for the last 3+ years. I really don't have anything negative to say. Jeff who works for maintenance has always tackled my maintenance issues at the drop of a dime. Beacon hill is quiet, even living on the first floor

                    It's somewhat quiet on a good day. It's somewhat good for keeping the heat in winter. The pool is nice. But, the walls are thin. You can hear when the water is turned on in another apartment. Look, if you want to move in that's good. You'll either love or hate it

                        This is a perfect location hidden in the trees and close to a beautiful forest preserve with miles of trails for runners, walkers, and bikers. Very close to the mall and many strip malls. Everything you need is close by. I am enjoying my stay with friendly quiet neighbors. The staff is also very nice helpful.

                          I would rate my experience 7/10. I do like the location and size of my apartment. The neighbors are very nice and welcoming. However... There are some challengeswith these apartments. The apartments are old and There are lots of cheap cabinets and wear and tear in the apartments. It takes a while for maintenance to make repairs; my toilet had need maintenance at least every month for the past 6 months. The internet is providing through a separate company and is always down. Also, the pricing on your rent/internet goes up without an explanation why.

                            It's ok. Work orders are not done in a timely manner. No updates to apartments that when you have lived there many years. Plowing in winter is terrible. Updates to things may be done, but are never taken care of

                              Honestly I'm not a big fan of living here. My maintenance requests rarely get fixed, my neighbors are constantly smoking inside their apartments and the residents leave their pets feces all over the front and back lawn. The few things I like are that it's relatively quiet and affordable for someone like me. That's it.

                                  It's been fine. I had one service order I put in and they fixed it pretty quickly. I like having the security door as well and my neighbors for the most part are pretty good. I have had a few packages go missing but other than that there's not a lot to complain about.

                                        First of all, it's very expensive for what you're actually getting here. The 1 bedrooms are reasonably priced, but the 2 bedrooms are ridiculous for what you actually get. And I should mention, the price goes up every year that you renew. The internet suuuuucks! And you only get 1 choice in provider, so yeah? if you need the internet for work, I wouldn't count on working correctly every day. We've gone days on days without it working before. But hey, it looks nice, I guess. But people don't pick up their dog poop.

                                          I love living out there but something needs to be done with the dogs peeing so close to the building. When you walk outside you see all the grass gone and the smells get a little rough. I know tenants have a right to have dogs but sad to see all of that grass gone. And have someone that cares about cutting the grass out there is bad they don't trim are the building and do not clean the grass off the patio's . I don't know if there a new company but you guys are paying them money for work that they are not doing.

                                            We've honestly had a pretty easy time living here. We live close to the office so it's pretty calm usually. My only complaints are that there will be times when there isn't a single spot in front of your own building, and there's not enough places to do laundry. Each building has 4 washers and 4 dryers for the whole building so good luck if somebody leaves their clothes in a machine for hours.

                                              Ok but maintenance takes forever to fix serious problems. The small easy stuff gets done right away but the big stuff, even emergencies, like water leaking on to a carpet took over a month for them to fix. I dont blame them, it's management and the owners that cut costs and over work them

                                                mostly good. my neighbors are great. they do have problems with poor water quality and spotty internet. I also feel like they single out some tenants for violations but let others slide on bigger violations. the grounds are usually kept up well, but this year they have a new landscaping company and frankly, they suck. but I have lived here six years with minimal issues
