Cockroach infestation

My girlfriend rented there and said it was cockroach ?? infested! They wouldn’t give her back her deposit either! Stay Away!! ?? Disgusting place to live. They don’t fix anything and ignore all requests for exterminators

    managers care less of complaints of kids running inside the apartments .complains fall on deaf ears . in other words the would not care if you left .people smoke inside the apartments and the stench is so bad . bld 63 is the worst. renters beware.

      Hidden gem in Worcester. Clean and very well maintained. Minimal noise. Helpful office staff. Friendly neighbors. Excellent security.

        You get what you pay for living here. I am a med student over at Umass and I thought I found a little gem here, boy was I wrong! Walls are extremely thin can hear everything your neighbors are doing. A unit above me had a bat enter in their apartment. I can't even fathom how that can happen. A neighbor asked me if I was having issues with fleas and bedbugs and thats what prompted me to leave as soon as possible. Location is nice that is probably the only pro here. They also work hard to make the exterior look nice.

            Neighbors are really noisy. I can hear EVERYTHING from beneath my neighbors. Children run all day and management does nothing about it. Sketchy area seeing as I saw a car with no tires sitting on cinder blocks! In my own parking lot! How can I trust my car is safe out there. Train is really loud and parking is often packed. The rent isn't too expensive compared to others around the way but after all my complaints, I can see why. Inside is nice and well maintained. Very spacious

              We recently moved in a 2 bedroom apartment after having lived in downtown Worcester for many years. Even though the buildings are quite old, the whole living community is very pleasant and quiet. Definitely recommendable for anyone looking to live in a safe and reasonably quiet neighborhood. Only very minor drawback is the proximity to the rail tracks...would be no problem if a noise barrier would be put up along the property, though.

                Management

                I have recently moved in to a one bedroom unit at Eastview. The entire staff during this process was extremely helpful and courteous from the maintenance team to the management office! My unit was painted and clean upon my arrival. The manager approached me during my move to make sure everything was satisfactory and stated to call if we needed anything. The entire staff went above and beyond!

                  Great location!

                  This apartment is convenient for Umass med students! I have lived in the complex for a few months now and found everything is to my liking. The apartment was clean when I moved in (this is very important for me because I've moved into many dirty apartments and had to clean them myself!). The staff was friendly and responsive. The manager made a lot of accommodations for my arrival since I had to move cross country for med school. I found this apartment to be a suitable place for my next couple of years in med school.

                    Eastview Anniversary

                    It's official I have been at Eastview for one year and just renewed my lease. I am studying (2nd Year) at the Med School and can't emphasis enough how convenient it is. The space is laid out well, the pool in summer helps me cool off and is a perfect place to study. It makes it feel like a somewhat vacation by the pool since I am in med school debt and cant afford a real vacation. Management has been very proactive with both maintenance. Perfect example I had just come off of a late night rotation and came out of the hospital and saw how much it had snowed. When got home (walking) I saw that maintenance had shoveled out my car and cleaned it off for me!! After an 17 hour day it was the best feeling that I didn't have to clean off the car in my scrubs after! For the money and location to Rt 9 and the Pike right up the street there are no other places that come close. Highly Recommended!

                      Problem in moving to East view

                      I am scientist from Massachusetts Medical school. I recently booked apartment at EASTVIEW and made the full payment for living there from July 1, 2010. 3 days before the moving date one official from EASTVIEW informed me that I can not move to the said apartment since someone is still staying there. I was shocked since I made the full payment 1 month before and EASTVIEW ifficialy asked me to proceed for things like internet, cable, electricity etc. EASTVIEW didn"t make any alternate arrangemnt in the same property for the said dame date, rather said I can move after 1 month. They postponed sending my money back. After several phone calls and notice for legal action they sent my money back. Since EASTVIEW said just 3 days before the moving date, I lost lot of money for things like internet, cable, moving etc since I booked few days before. I asked for compensation but they did not give anything. I have to search again for apartment in the last moment.. Worst experience I ever had !!

                        Laundry Room

                        I THINK AND ALOT OF PEOPLE AGREE THAT THE LAUDRY SHOULD BE OPEN 24/7. WE PAY FOR THE LAUNDRY SO WHY NOT? ALSO THE KIDS THAT LIVE IN THE APARTMENTS SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY INFRONT OF THE WINDOWS OF THE RESIDENTS, IT IS VERY DISTERBING TO WAKE UP TO OTHER PEOPLES KIDS SCREAMING. AND THIS MOSTLY HAPPENS ON THE WEEKENDS WHEN THE PEOPLE THAT WORK HARD ALL WEEK CANNOT HAVE PEACE IN THEIR OWN HOME. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT COULD BE DONE ABOUT THAT. THANK YOU...

                          Great place to live!

                          Great value for your money! Tons of space in the bedrooms and living room/dining room. Nice neighbors, quiet with lots of grad/med students. Friendly maintenance guys will help dig your car out of the snow and plow great, also fix everything in apartment fast. Parking lot patrolled at night, outside locking doors. Laundry room is never crowded, pool is quiet, tennis courts never in use. Great place for a great price. Under new management since some of the bad reviews, new people are more professional.

                            This med student says Eastview is no. 1!

                            I moved to Eastview when i started my residency at Eastview Apts. I never had any problems with noise, I can study through the night. This is the best place for UMass medical students who want good quality at a fair price. Last week I had a clogged toilet and it was fixed in 5 minutes. I always recommend Eastview to my fellows at school.

                              eastview

                              I have lived here for 4 years now. It is my first apartment, and it is great for just that. The hallway smells horrid, way to many ethnic food smells all mixing into one. I have to warn my guests about the smell in the hallways (very embarrasing), and my cost on air freshners is crazy. My husband and I actually put towels and draft stoppers under the door to keep the smell from coming in (which it does). The workmanship on the actual unit is poor. There are nasty water stains on the ceilings and random holes and cracks, with no molding to keep a nice and neat look. Like I said, great for a single person or first timer.

                                Definitely agree about the noise problem and the smell in the hallways of ethnic food. Not an awful place to live, especially if it is a first apartment, but I am definitely glad I am not there anymore. The manager's office staff does also change continually, but they still always seemed like decent people, no matter who was there.

                                  I have had a good experience here. The staff is great; when I call for something it is taken care of immediately.Last year they installed new windows in all the apartments which is a tremendous savings on my heat bill.The improvements to the halls were much needed and look great. Keep up the good work

                                        BEST PROPERTY!!!!

                                        i've lived here for three years now and I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this place truly is. The new property manager is extremely nice and always willing to help out. I feel this place is great because of her efforts! She just planned a big tenant barbecue for us, which I cannot begin to thank her enough! The maintnance staff is the best I've seen from the other complexes around Worcesrter that I've lived in. They fix everything needed promptly. I cannot imagine anyone would think differently. I understand the old manager left and there is a new one, but I don't think changing manager's for the best makes a place bad!

                                          I only live here because it is cheap. I would never recommend this place to anyone. The office people change yearly, the repair people are not so bright. <br><br>I have been here for over 8 years, thank god I travel a ton, I can't even begin to tell you how noisy this place is. Kids playing ball, riding bikes, and skate boarding down the hall. Elevator always broken. Security doors always proped open. Not enough parking. <br><br>My stove caught on fire after it stopped working properly for over 3 months. I lived without a stove for nearly 6 months. A/C froze up, huge block of ice - called maint. they told me not to use it for a week (July). as it thawed, water started pooring out of the bottom, so much that it caused water damage to the ceiling below. Oh it gets better - they sent me a bill for that damage, made me live with moldy carpet and an A/c that didn't work.<br><br>All I know is if I came home from work everyday, like most, I would never come home here. I am out of town… See More>

                                            ok first apartment

                                            This was the first apartment I've lived in and I stayed for a year (due to the signed lease). It's not THAT terrible but you can find a better place for a much cheaper rent.<br><br>What I liked about this apt is its location - it's convenient for people without cars. And since the heating system is electric (and we're pretty insulated by the 4th and 2nd floors), it was actually cheaper than gas. <br>There's also washers and dryers in the building, but they're not cheap. Don't attempt to do your laundry on Saturdays or else you'd spend your whole day waiting.<br><br>What I didn't like about this place:<br>- noise. You can hear footsteps everywhere - above you and along the corridors. And if you're bothered by the train, this place is not for you. Other than those, it's dead quiet. <br>-smell. It is poorly ventilated. <br>-maintenance. A chunk of our bathroom ceiling fell down because of a leak from the unit above us. It started slowly, just droplets of water dripping down from the ceiling. We called maintenance and it took them days just to take a look on what was wrong. They fixed the leak eventually… See More>

                                                I have not moved in to my new apartment yet, however, I recently did rent an apartment and am planning on moving in May 1st. The rental agent was such a pleasure to deal with. She was friendly and was able to answer all of my questions. <br>I was shown the apartment I will be renting and it was spotless. If this is any indication of what it's going to be like living here then I am glad I picked this place. And it's in a great location.
