Resident 2002 - 2006

7/19/2006

Bancroft Commons is being transformed from what was a grand hotel into ticky-tacky cribs. In the office, you get an argument before you get assistance. You're lucky if one elevator works. That one gets used by tenant and all the workmen with their tools and building materials. Management has no organization and does not tell the truth.

    Beautiful now, can't wait to see the finished product

    The grounds are very nice and convinient in Downtown, they have redone the lobby and its SO NICE! The office staff is mainly female and all very helpful. A lot of maintenace guys around but they keep to themselves. All in all one of the best communities I have lived in.

        Great Management Company

        I have been a resident of Bancroft for the past eight years. In that time, I have never seen a management company take care of the building like this one has. They are trying to make it desirable to live in an otherwise forgotten part of Worcester. The building is on the up, and I would recommend this place because of thier hard work.

          Just looking

          I am currently looking for a place to live in Worcester. I really hope that the management looks at the postings from their current residents. 5 extra minutes of research and I found some very scary psotings. Very cheap rent and now I know why. Good Luck everyone.

            Bad Managment

            This building used to be a nice place to live but due to the mismanagment of landlords the place has totally declined into a near slum. First of all this building has the most incompetent maintainance crew I have ever seen in my life (and I am old). These people have plumbers doing electrical work, carpenters doing plumbing, and handymen fixing elevators. The only living things that are happy in this dalapitated old building are the mice and the inch and a half long, fast, well fed, cockaroaches.<br><br>As for parking forget about it. My car has been towed 3 times, it has been broken into 2 times and the windows have been smashed 1 time and a half. The half was a crack that occurred as a result of a fist fight (which is common) out side on portland street. next lets talk about peace and quite...basically the only peace and quiet i get is when i got to work. residence are allowed to play loud muisic, have scary domestic disturbances, and party on weekdays when people who work are trying to sleep.<br><br>I can not count how many times the pipes have bursted; however I do recall the time my… See More>

              Here's the 411

              Overall, this place sucks.<br><br>Where to start....<br><br>First, because of all the people in this building that do not know how to cook, or whatever their issue is, the fire alarm goes off VERY often (at all times of the day and night). It can take up to an hour and a half for it to be turned off by the fire department. At one point a couple months ago it was going off a few times a week.<br><br>The two elevators that are running (or very often not running) have expired inspections. They expired in 2004!<br><br>Very often at least one of the elevators is broken, and stays broken for MONTHS at a time. One working elevator for 10 floors of apartments is not good. You end up waiting in the lobby for 15 minutes to finally get an elevator.<br><br>The mice that run around in the building and in apartments are widely influenced by the nasty neighbors you have.<br><br>I think we even saw a cockroach one day.<br><br>The trash rooms are nasty, nobody knows how to be clean.<br><br>The laundry facilities consist of a single washer and dryer on each floor (some that don't work). Needless to say we do not do… See More>
