The worst living experience I've EVER had. Do not move here under any circumstance, not even of you're homeless. They act nice but they are the -----. The apartment are very old and outdated but the prices are steady going up... Old management was ok,… See More>

    Rent prices went up when management changed. On their website they say there's a workout room and there hasn't been one there in YEARS! They're lying about the workout room. The noise complaints never get taken care of. My neighbors have gotten their cars robbed… See More>

          Do not move in here unless you are really desperate and almost homeless and really need a basic roof over your head. I lived here for 4 years, Beginning years were great until we came back from vacation and found that management had been changed.… See More>

                  Not the same old Ponderosa

                  I decided to write a review since there were not any in the last couple of years. I have lived here for 3.5 years, and the problems addressed in previous reviews have mostly been addressed by the current management. There are two sides to Ponderosa,… See More>

                      I lived here for one year and couldnt wait for my lease to be up. Loud neighbors, a lot of vehicles broke into and a few were even stolen. Maintenance would rather put a bandage on the problem instead of fix it right. Some people… See More>
