Beyond Grateful

When we found Pembrook Place online we jumped in on it. At that time there were no units available. When we got them call we signed everything immediately. We have lived in other complexes, that cannot compete with Pembrook Place. The Staff is amazing & very patient with. The grounds are well taken care of on a weekly basis. If we have a problem with the apartment the handyman on staff is quick and takes his time. I can walk to a diner, fast food restaurants and a nail salon. The gym has everything needed and it is always clean and many different machines. The pool is clean and a HUGE advantage and there are grills that are pool side for use. This is one of the best of decisions that we have ever made.

    A tab bit upset about a viewing I had schedule since last week for today (11/26/2018). The property manager was very disrespectful when I arrived for my showing. She didn't look up my information and asked me did I belong there. What side of town was I coming from? I'm thinking in my head I just moved to Rockford and she seems very hostile and racist. I decided to leave instead of being asked a million non relevant questions. I did not receive this type of behavior when I visit the Pembrook lofts downtown. Mickey was an awesome tour guide and I wish he could have showed me Pembrook Place.

      Thin walls!! I can hear my neighbors snore!! Low flying planes since we are near an airport! Paint chips easily! Kids run all through the parking lot! While this is a safer part of Rockford.. no where in Rockford is all safe. I've heard gunshots while sitting outside. On top of all that the staff is rude and uneducated.

        Staff never answers the phone... You might catch someone every great blue moon. Maintnence is very unorganized. They should atleast be able to give you a time and date for when someone will be available to come fix you problem request, but they dont. They just make it a guessing game, you never know it could take 3 weeks or a month. If your oven or washer and dryer went out... Well you wont be cookinh or washing for a while. Stack up on tv dinners and prepair to wear the same dirty clothes. Or go to your neariest laundry matt. When it snow and that snow turns into ice. Buy yourself some salt and a shovel because there not doing it. Other than that. I will look at the ratings before I move into another apartment.

          I've lived here for about 17 months and never had one complaint. Moved here for work from Chicago so it's definitely an adjustment if you're not used to a quiet area. All the neighbors from who I've met and spoke to are all humble and pretty much go about there business. So in addition to the people around the area that live in the apartments, the staff is absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a place to rent at Pembrook Place, ask for Rhonda, she will take good care of you. From the property manager Liz and Eric who does maintenance, all of the people here do a fantastic job making sure their tenants are living at a place to call their apartment home with confidence. Prior to me moving to Rockford I checked out more than a handful of apartments in the area. Another win for Pembrook Place is location. In the vicinity there is a workout area and outdoor pool. There's also 4 restaurants and a Mobil gas station that are walking distance away. The complex is about a five minute drive from Cherryvale Mall and the highway (I-90/I-39). For the apartment itself when I moved in,… See More>

            I have lived at Pembrook for 3 years and have to move for medical reasons. The staff is great. Liz, Rhonda and Eric are the best. They have all gone above and beyond in helping me in a difficult time. They tried to find the perfect unit to live in as I needed to move from the my 2nd floor unit to a first floor unit. We couldn't make it work but they were very helpful and supportive. The only problem that I ever had was noisy children that lived next door. Parental supervision was never there ....so they pounded on the walls and yelled a lot. Too many children in a small environment will do that. Never heard anything from the neighbors below us.

              Do not live here. While the apartment itself is quiet and the area is decent, the staff are horrible---the worst I've experienced with any apartment complex I've lived in (and I've lived in many). They are extremely condescending. if you have an issue with something you will never be happy as the lease/policies are always under 'management discretion,' AND you will never get your security deposit back. A number of people (including myself) have actually owed money. They will find something to charge you on. I was a quiet, respectful tenant and I still had so many issues with them. If you're looking for a place that is more 'laid back' you won't be happy here.

                Over all experience was good. But the regarding the carpet and maintenance experience was bad. Carpets are dead flat, they even wont replace it. I just stayed there for 1 year and have to pay nearly $700+ as part for move out charges(even if you have clean the apartment without any stain).

                  This Place is pretty nice, but the people in the front offices are totally fake and rude. Their policies are totally ridiculous, I had my carpet and oven cleaned and they still charged my $100 when I moved out for them. I did not get my deposit back for a month and a half after I moved out. The contract is like 30 pages long and they abide by the letter of the law on everything to nickel and dime you for as much as they can get their greedy little hands on. I would not recommend this place unless you like dealing with people that are not easy to deal with and contracts that will suck dry your pocketbook; I wanted to stay here longer, but didn't want to deal with the front office people, they were terrible

                    worst choice I 've ever made

                    This place is very noisy, poor services, most of all office staff/personnel seems always trying to make you pay more regardless how long you've been with them, feels like they are pushing you move out or signing a whole year lease in a bigger apartment, not professional, no good rapport between landlord and tenants, very disappointed, can't wait to move out, DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALL!!

                      Worth the Price

                      Pembrook Place is a great place to live in Rockford. The leasing agents are very friendly. I've had no problems with the unit, which is very well maintained. The grounds are kept very neat and snow and ice is very promptly removed in winter. The pool is very nice and perfect for family meals as there are gas grills poolside. The fitness center has filtered water and cable tv, and it is available 24 hours for tenants. The only thing that is missing is water softeners, because Rockford has very hard water. Unfortunately the rent is going up this year, but I like where I live, so I will pay the extra. I have no idea what any of these negative reviewers are talking about. I've had nothing but pleasant experiences with the staff, and I have never seen a single bug. They spray for bugs regularly unless a tenant waives the service.

                        Awful

                        This was the worst apartment to live in. The only way you will like it is if you have no pets and no problems with your apartment. The weight room and pool are ok, but always crowded. We were chastised several times when our dog barked at people coming to the door. Apparently dogs aren't supposed to bark. However, the chiuauas on either side of us barked constantly with no step-in from the manager. Our hot water broke in the winter, and while it was very nice of them to give us keys to an empty apartment to shower in, they took a week to do that. They took 3 weeks total to fix the water, during which we couldn't have our dog in the house. They didn't offer any compensation for the huge mess and inconvenience. Another reviewer claimed that the outrageously high rent kept the "riffraff" out, but that is not true. There are many trashy neighbors living in the community. The apartment manager is a jerk and speaks so sugar sweet that it's hard not to scream at her condescending tone. Look elsewhere to rent. If you need to find a place that takes dogs, I have heard better things… See More>

                          Don't Rent!

                          I have lived in Pembrook for a year (2010-2011). This is a WORST place I have ever had. 1. Bug problem What you will experience right away is the bugs, a LOT of bugs; many woodlices, many ants (0.1-0.2 inch), and millipodes, etc. Check out my pictures here. http://goo.gl/ndKiq http://goo.gl/1lyvm My memory at the Pembrook is filled with catching bugs. When it was serious, tens of bugs a day. I requested the pest-contol and they always said "This is a ground floor, so it's inevitable." Even if they came and sprayed insecticides, bugs were crawling out in 1 week. This is NOT because the unit is on the ground floor, BUT BECAUSE of the poor construction. Bugs keep coming in from the "GAPS" between the carpet and the wall. 2. Molds We had a serious fungal growth on clothes, baby toys and furniture. And again I blame the poor construction. The whole unit is very damp. There must be water reservoir under the concrete floor. (For instance, when they got rid of the cracked patio concrete, there was a "lake" below it.) And even worse, they CHARGED me the painting of the moldy walls in bathroom and laundry room when I move out!!! 3. Thin Wall You can even… See More>

                            DO NOT RENT HERE

                            Not ONLY is the rent WAY overpriced, this is also the WORST living experience I have EVER had. -----, the apartment "manager" is a --!&# and -----------, you can hardly talk to her. Nothing is EVER her fault and the tennant is always in the wrong. This complex wants nothing but money-FOR EVERYTHING. There's a charge for every single thing you do here. The pool is always nasty, the weight room is a joke with out-dated equipment, nothing around the apartment gets fixed in a timely matter, etc. If you are thinking of renting here, PLEASE, do yourself a HUGE favor and look elsewhere. I feel sorry for anyone who gets suckered in to moving here.

                              I have lived here a few months and find most things fine. I do hear the upstairs renters every time they walk around though. I had not lived in an apartment for 25 years so maybe this is common to apartment living.

                                Really Nice Place

                                I lived in a 3-bedroom, second floor, for 1 year. Very spacious apartment, very well kempt grounds, excellent neighbors. The prices are above-average to high, but with all the amenities you get, its worth it. The price also helps to keep all the hoodlums out of the apartments. Amenities: 1-car garage, central air, washer/dryer in the apartment, dishwasher, outdoor pool, workout/clubhouse area.

                                  I recently renewed my lease for the second year and like it here . Great crew of people who respond quickly no matter what the request. The curb apeal is great. They provide an onsite clubhouse that can be rented for gatherings, a very nice and well maintained inground pool along with a nicely equipped workout facility. I highly recommend Pembrook!!

                                    Don't take an apartment with a bedroom over the garage, it's cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

                                      I have lived in Pembrook Place for almost three years. I love the layout of my apartment, especially the attached garage. I am not sure what the other person is talking about with the potato bugs, but I live in an upper unit and have never had a bug problem.

                                        I have lived in these apartments for going on 2 years. I am very happy w/ everything and can honestly say this has been my favorite apartment to live at to date. The staff is very friendly and for some reason if something does go wrong, they are right on it. Pefect place to live for families and singles alike. I would highly recommend checking them out. My car did get vandalized once when we did not park it in the garage, but where doesn't that happen in Rockford.
