Resident 2014 - 2015

9/12/2015

I lived in a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom unit on the fourth floor from Winter 2014 to Winter 2015. This was my first apartment I moved into out of college, it will always have a special place in my heart! This place was ideal for me because it was close to work, it was within my budget, and the staff were willing to work with my tight schedule for viewing. After checking out a dozen apartments in the area, my roommate and I decided to choose this place, and we moved in. Staff: The staff has always been responsive and professional. Everyone--office staff members, security persons, maintenance crews--was nice. The only advice I would give is to always make sure to keep all copies of lease, communications, and payments. I feel like if I had not followed up with extra emails, I would not have gotten my security deposit back. The actual apartment unit: The unit my roommate and I moved into was nice! High ceiling, huge windows, hardwood floor. Water ran well, plumbing, dishwasher, and garbage disposal, worked well. Shower handle fell out once, and it was fixed very quickly when I communicated that to the office staff through email. Central AC/heating… See More>

Thank you again for choosing to make Royal Worcester your home and for taking the time to leave such a detailed review!

    ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT THE WITCH ----- IS GONE!!! KARMA KARMA KARMA. SHE WAS A HATEFUL ----- WHO WOULD DO ANYTHING TO EVICT ANYONE WHO HAD A HOUSING VOUCHER. MAYBE IT WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS DRUNK ALL OF THE TIME? HOPEFULLY THE NEW MANAGEMENT IS MUCH BETTER BECAUSE THE APARTMENTS ARE BEAUTIFUL. I LIVED THERE FOR 6 YEARS ABD WHEN ----- WORKED THERE SHE WAS THE BEST!! I WAS EVICTED FOR BEING 2 MONTHS BEHIND. WENT TO COURT AND HAD THE BACK RENT AND ----- TOLD THE JUDGE SHE WANTED ME OUT!! IN MY OPINION ----- IS A HEARTLESS WOMAN AND WILL GET WHAT SHE DESERVES!!!! GOOD LUCK NEW MANAGEMENT!!! PLEASE TREAT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE VOUCHERS FAIRLY. THEY ARE MOST LIKELY TRYING TO GET THERE LIVES IN ORDER. THANK YOU FOR READING!!

      Beacon Communities has brought in an entirely new management team over the past couple of years. This team cares deeply about fair and equal housing opportunities for any individuals/families who meet our application qualifications. In addition we have begun some much needed upgrades to this historic building and are very excited for what the future holds at Royal Worcester Apartments. While it sounds like you had a negative experience under the previous management, we are certain that the team which Beacon has in place is kind, professional, and working each day to provide all residents with the best possible lifestyle. Sincerely, The Team at Beacon Residential Management

      The previous reviews may have been true years ago but things are different in 2014. Since new management took over in Jan 2012 under the leadership of ------------- and his team, everything has changed for the better. Now the staff is very professional, friendly and attentive which was unheard off with previous management. Also,there is enhanced security in/around the building and working washers/dryers installed in the laundry room. Best of all, they got rid of almost all the hooligan tenants so it feels safer now than before. I will encourage prospective renters to consider this apartment community which is the best around Clark University. You will be glad you did! ----------.

        No organization at all!

        Their office is a mess, they don't have well manteined records of rent payments and WILL SEND A 14 DAYS EVICTION LETTER over just a few days late without previous notice(or in my case, I made the payment and yet they sent me a letter). The manager is very rude, treats tenants as if they were doing a favor to live there (as if they don't have MANY apartments vacant).<br>Also, the covered parking lot wich is paid is completely OPEN during snow storm. It gives a really hard time for people who pay to find a spot.

          Thank you for your review. Royal Worcester has changed dramatically since the time of your review. Beacon Communities took over ownership of the community in 2012. We have a new management and maintenance team who are dedicated to helping our residents in a fair and efficient manner. Beacon Communities does not keep the covered parking area at Royal Worcester open during snowstorms. Our maintenance team members plow the side lot, which is provided at no additional charge to our residents. We have also made substantial improvements to the building, both inside and outside of our resident's apartments. Please know we take community feedback very seriously and look to act on it when possible. Thank you again for taking the time to share your review.

          Slumlord --- Only Cares About His Own Pockets

          So far, all summer long 2006, there has been no working air conditioning in the entire building. All 150 apartments have been forced to live without the central air conditioning that is guaranteed by the lease.<br><br>To date, the most "generous" gesture offered by Slumlord --- has been some ice cream during the MIDDLE OF THE DAY while EVERYONE IS AWAY AT WORK. Surely, this must have cost you $5, maybe even $10! Are you sure you can afford that, ---?! That must have put a damaging dent in the $175,000 you rake in monthly from your residents.<br><br>As the end of New England summer draws near, it is becoming clear that this will not be fixed until air conditioning becomes unnecessary for another year due to the change of season.<br><br>Maybe we'll luck out, and have the exciting opportunity to enjoy an 8-month long winter without heat, too.

            THIS PLACE STINKS!!

            ok here's a quick run down of the place - it truly looks beautiful on the outside and somewhat on the inside HOWEVER this place stinks! The ceilings are constantly being painted over (because of the mold!) but thats not even the worst part! The worst is ----- and her so called side kick assistant ----! They both stink! I'd rather deal with the stinking halls and molding ceilings than to ever have to deal with either of them again. Especially if you are a subsidized tenant! They honestly think that they can rule your life (because they both are miserable) just because your apartment is subsidized! I am in the process of filing discrimination papers against the Royal Worcester's staff and I have evidence to prove it too! Good Luck ----- and ---- go work in hell where it doesn't matter if you try to pass on yor misery!!!

                Yet Another Resident Testimony.

                I am a multi-year resident here, and an over nine year resident of Main South Worcester, while I have seen a wide variety of people here, I DO know a few things about the Royal Worcester: <br>1. In this part of Worcester this apartment is a diamond in the rough compared to others. If you've ever lived in a triple decker owned by a kindly old Irish guy, you would have a SIGNIFICANTLY more difficult time getting ANYTHING done. <br>2. While there are many things to be desired here, i.e. the sporadic mold problems, the ever aging work out room and laundry facility, on the whole things run pretty smoothly.<br>3. This is a safe place in a very dangerous part of Worcester. I had my car broken into several times and my house robbed at various points in other locations, but the video surveilance system seems to prevent the random crack-money seeking robbery that's much more common in this area. <br>4. If those of you that had problems with Sandy approached her with half the attitude you displayed in some of these reviews, I don't blame her for putting your matter on the bottom of a… See More>

                  not worth the $$

                  I recently went and checked out an apartment at the RW. I arrived on time and was told by Sandy (the manager) to "have a seat" she was in her office arguing with (I'm assuming) a tenant. After waiting around for over 10 minutes I decide to leave! For the amount of $ the appartment cost you'd think that they would have a courteous professional to show off the place. It really looked like a beautiful complex but to be honest I was just rubbed the wrong way. There are etiquette classes - maybe she should enroll in one or two!

                    the place may look nice, but it's a dump

                    I understand the building is old and that things will break down, that's not the issue. During my year of tenancy here is a rough list of the things that broke: the garbage disposal (twice), the blinds (in all three rooms), the coat closet doors, the bedroom closet shelf, the bedroom closet door, the refridgerator, the intercom, the door lock, and the heat/air conditioner. Now, I could actually tolerate that, only the maintenance crew found it so bothersome to fix any of those things. It took them 4 months to fix the closet doors, 2 months to fix the shelf, and 9 months to fix the blinds! The refridgerator was the only thing they fixed promptly, and that's because we threatened to withhold rent until they did. The parking garage door is always broken, so anyone can get into the garage. People who aren't paying for a sticker still manage to park in the garage and the lot because management doesn't enforce the sticker system. Good luck finding a space (that you actually paid for) during the winter months. People don't throw their garbage down the shute, so you'll smell it down… See More>

                      I just discovered this site from a friend and am appalled at some of the comments! I have lived here for quite awhile and have never had any issues. I find the complex a very nice place to live and plan to stay for many many more years. The staff is wonderful-very cooperative and friendly. Maintenance is always there to provide their services, somethimes they need to come back to fix repairs but i also understand that things do break down and need to be fixed over years. This building is not new anymore and no matter where you live things always need to be fixed. Many people in this building have never owned their own home and can not understand how things work and need to be repaired. As for the office staff I think the manager is wonderful, she has a large building she is responsible for. I think she does an excellent job considering everything she has to do on a daily basis. I do not think anyone who lives in this building could handle the job she has and I do not agree with the criticism when I here people put… See More>

                          I had lived here for about 6 years with my child who was constantly sick - due to the mold growing and manager not doing anything about it! They expect you to live without changing certain things until inspection time! My carpet was crappy when I moved in and had never been changed the wholel time I was living there. I had asked many of times. I had mold growing under my bathroon floor to the extent that you could see it through the floor tiles! Still nothing done! I totally agree with the others - before you decide to move into the "------ Worcester" talk to a long time resident! Moving out was the best thing I had done!

                            Do not be mislead by their statement that rent includes heat. One of the many lies you will hear if you rent here. If rent is free then why is my electric bill $225 a month in the winter and $40 a month in the summer when my windows are open. Don't bother asking the office for an explaination. They don't know their heads from their asses. Move on. There is nothing "Royal" here.

                              I don't recommend this place. I was a tenant for many years with no trouble at all. Always paid my rent on time. When my room mate moved out, I went to the property manager and asked her to recommed another roomate so that I would be able to stay. She recommended a roomate who stole from me. I also though he was paying his portion of the rent. He wasn't! I didn't know this until I received court papers. I informed her of my roomate situation and though she acted sympathetic, she proceeded to evict me. Thanks for the knife in the back.

Any positive feedback from this site has been written by the property manger, Sandy, posing as a resident to counter all the bad press. Please note that if Sandy were to leave, then the Royal Worcester Apartments can be considered livable. Visit the Royal Worcester and stop a real resident. This site has turned into Sandy's sounding board.

                                  Great place

                                  I have lived here for 3 years and I think the place is great! The grounds and building are very well kept and the staff, both the office and maintenance are friendly, courteous, and polite. I continue to recommend The Royal to anyone I talk to.

                                      ----- is the best manager this place has ever had!! Her new asst. is great!! Much better than the last one she had to work with! That lady had a piss poor attitude and always looked for ways to get residents in trouble. She was only nice to foreign people.I dont know how ----- put up with her!I am so happy to know there are 2 nice people in the office now. IT makes it a much nicer place to be. ----- had to put up with a lot of grief lately b/c of problems with the maintenance staff and she always has a nice attitude. There are many rumors in the building that ----- is a ----- and THIS IS NOT TRUE at all and I tell people all the time. I hope she stays around for a long time to come!

                                        ----- is the problem!

                                        I have been a tenant for some time now. I can honestly say that the problem is simply -----. No one can talk to her and she will not lift a finger to help anyone. I don't know how or why she still has her job. Her assistant was very approachable and dependable--she is the only one I wanted to talk to if I had a problem(as most of the tenants would agree) However now she is gone leaving us to deal with only -----. <br><br>I guess it says alot when even -----'s assistant couldn't stand her. Anyways, I speak for many when I say we wish ---- continued happiness. We thank her for protecting us from the wrath of -----. We know that it took a toll on her. We wish that she were still here. The wrong person left, but she deserves better than working with -----.

                                          Cold Hearted Manager

                                          I was a tenant in the building for quite sometime, luckily I was able to rent a subsidized apartment with my children in the building at the time. The building was very nice and well kept and nobody seemed to bother me at all. From time to time my rent would increase (since it was subsudized it went according to my income)and it would be a few days late one time a week the most. Well the new apartment manager that came on board after Linda left (Linda was wonderful) is a cold hearted -----! She tried to evict me! Because I was late on a few occasions. I'm thinking to myself maybe I should go on welfare and not have to pay much at all like mostly all of the subsidy holders in there! She harasses the hell out of anyone she possibly can (subsidy holders only though) because she thinks she can get away with it! Little does she know that you can file a harassment and discrimination complaint against her/ the building these days. I am currently awaiting a response in regards to one that I had filed. I honestly hope that one day she is in… See More>

                                                Don´t even consider

                                                I have lived here for over a year and have to say that the manager is extremely rude, unprofessional. Overall the apartments are nice (can be noisy at times) Guests are intimidated by security guards harrassing them to sign in! (Is this a dormitory??) God forbid if you have company over 2-4 guests, security will be banging your door down and then you´ll receive a nasty non-professional letter the next day from the drunken manager of the building that you are making too much noise!! Not to mention all the children running up and down the hall ways at all hours of the night. Maybe they should take care of that issue and butt out of respectable people having company over. It was an embarrassing situation because I honestly have to say that the noise level was at a bare minimum but security has nothing better to do. Next time I´ll invite the manager in for a cocktail that should put her at ease.

                                                  Don´t blame the manager or assist. manager for the way that building is. BLAME the super and his CHARMING wife. She runs around gossiping all the time, bad mouthing the office staff and thinks she should be the one to run the building. Shes nothing but a LOW life. She wouldn´t know the truth if it slapped her in the face. She goes to apts. when she knows they gave their notice and tries to con them out of their belonging. If someone dies, she the first one at their door to see what she can steal from them. The building is a nice,clean, beatiful place. Residents are mainly grad students, doctors or professionals. Get rid of her and see how much better the place can be.

                                                    A: Thank you for your question. Isolation from the sounds of daily life is not as feasible in apartment living as in a detached home, so there is always a chance that any apartment home in any community may not be 100% isolated from occasional outside sounds like footsteps and doors. However, our community does keep and enforce quiet hours at night when most residents are sleeping. If you have further questions or would like to experience our community in person, we invite you to contact our management office to schedule a tour to visit our community. Thank you again for your question.
