Resident · 2014 - 2016
Look, guys, you get what you pay for. For the most part, my experience at Applecroft was OK. Fairly quiet and the maintenance was good about getting to requests as soon as possible, including replacing my range/oven when the largest burner stopped working. These are older buildings and they do have their problems. An air conditioning pipe burst in my bathroom, although luckily it didn't leak anywhere else in the apartment. The main complaint I would make has to be the air system, which is central and involves a boiler. That boiler seems to have a lot of problems. The heat in the winter was great in my third-floor one bedroom, but the air conditioning was terrible. You can control the fan speed but don't expect to be able to get the exact temperature you want. Finally, be prepared for a long list of cleaning expectations when you move out. This includes having the carpet professionally cleaned, although frankly mine desperately needed to be replaced. I decided to take the hit from my security deposit and not hire a cleaner. Instead of the $100 I was expecting to come out (listed as the minimum on the move-out sheet) I was charged $156, as well as $20 to replace my 18-month old drip pans, which I had scrubbed with a metal sponge.
