Resident 2020 - 2022

Top of the Hell

This place is for people who don’t care about being in a good community. I cannot stress enough that if you live here, you will have to live in constant fear of residents shooting their guns into your windows or while you’re out pushing your child in a stroller. You are not safe here. Your family and your children are not safe here. There is absolutely 0 peace at this place. This section of Branch Ave is a speedway for extremely loud cars, dirt bikes, and ATVs. There are car accidents or people getting hit by cars constantly. There’s an insane amount of shootings, hit + runs, breaking into cars, you name it. I had the catalytic converter stolen off of my car in the parking lot and they did nothing. It is not uncommon now to see cars stripped of their rims/tires and other parts in the parking lot. Cars on the street have busted out windows and stolen parts. If you’re not RIGHT on top of tracking your packages they will also be stolen. Guaranteed. There is a MAJOR rodent infestation. It doesn’t matter what floor you live on, they’re in the walls, ceiling, and the entire HVAC… See More>

    The Owners should be Charged with Criminal Negligence

    Everything is a lie. Any positive review was written by an employee. Just do a quick search. The area is crime infested, police sirens all hours of night, the balcony boasts a lovely view of the local businesses being robbed or the police stopping it almost every other day. Nothing works. Literally nothing. I’ve been here for 3 months and my oven has never worked. Maintenance men all tell a different lie about a replacement every time I see them. A/C doesn’t work, room is unbearably hot, especially at night because you have to close windows due to noise from the nearby highway. There are a bunch of loud engines and muscle cars revving and speeding back & forth. It’s a game. They’re doing it every night, carbon emissions be damned. The police sit in the parking lot to tow cars that don’t have parking passes but the vandalism on the property and homeless people sleeping in the stairwells go unnoticed. The fitness center and laundry room are only open from 8AM to 10PM so if you have a job you’ll never get to use these things unless you skip dinner to workout or sacrifice your weekends for laundry.

      Trash, whole place trash. 90 degrees in my apartment. When y'all turning on the AC? We stuck at home for at Least 30 days, can we at least be physically comfortable? Already up until 1:45 am every night with the ratchets in the parking lot screaming and laughing like fools. Can't sleep with the windows cracked because of the noise, so can we get some AC?!?

        I moved here for the close proximity of the subway/metro system. Rent is reasonable, considering all utilities EXCEPT water - is included. Problem because your neighbors, with who knows how many people living in a particular unit, can take 30 minute showers and your water bill, for just YOU - might be $60.00 that month. Real issue: the buildings need complete overhauling! Seriously! The heat/a-c units are so outdated - it is pathetic. Noisy, bacteria-laden units. There were so many bugs on G-Level, where the washers in building 3208 - I had one visitor that refused to come in the back door - I was hurt and embarrassed but who could blame them? that problem at least for now no longer exists. I am on the 7th floor and I had a mouse - how the hell does that even happen? They very recently replaced the OUTDATED elevators, with OUTDATED inspection stickers - at least it was showing an old date in building 3208. BUT, even after installing 'new' elevators, one stopped working - twice. The Resident Manager will memo you to death about dogs not being allowed, yet EVERYONE seems to have at least one and a PitBull does… See More>

          Message for all 2019 future residents. Do not move to this property. Building 3206 is RAT INFESTED, RATS EVERYWHERE, ENTIRE BUILDING, EACH APARTMENT IS INFESTED WITH LARGE RATS. Your utilities are included except water. But the a/c units are horrible and from the 1970's. Inside of the a/c units are filthy black and filled with bacteria. I don't understand how Top Of The Hill are passing building inspections and not receiving health code violations. Residents can have "SERVICE DOGS" so be prepared to see thousands of dogs roaming around the property. I'm quite certain residents don't have permission for pets. Buildings are extremely old. No upgrades. Management isn't trying to upgrade property except the upgrades in Rental Office 3200 Building. No Security or police officers protecting community. Weed smokers pollute the entire building. Lobby and Hallways smell horrible. Last year, Lynwood Condominiums were televised for impoverished conditions. Top of the Hill will be next.

            Markita and the staff here are very friendly and helpful! We just moved in here so we had a lot of questions. They are very patient with us and always helped us resolve our issues.The residents here are very polite and friendly! Metro is in walking distance and grocery stores aren't far.

                Markita is the worst in customer service! I don't know what the mindset was behind hiring this mean obnoxious female. She is the absolute worst that K Management can offer. I like living here it's affordable. But having to go into the office to pay rent is the worst when encountering such ratchetness! K Management you could do much better.

                  This is one of the worst communities I've ever lived in. I wish I would have listened to the warnings I read in the reviews before I moved here. This place is DIGUSTING. It is infested with roaches AND mice. When I first moved in, I started seeing roaches within the first week. They were all over the apartment but primarily in the kitchen area. The elevators are really old and half the time broken. There are roaches crawling all throughout the elevator when it is waiting on the main floor. There is trash all throughout the building, the front of the building and the stair case which is probably half the reason they have soooo many rodents. If you have any other options please consider and spare yourself the headache. If you want a cheap place and you don't mind living with roaches & mice as your roommates than this is the place for you. I even overheard one of the tenants in my building complaining about a roach in her bed! I wouldn't recommend this apartment complex to my worst enemy. They need to tear these old raggedy, infested buildings down and build new ones. If a health… See More>

                    We have been here for almost four years. In the beginning it was great but the last couple years it is going downhill very fast. With a murder in the parking lot, shooting in the building, rude inconsiderate and trashy new residents, people smoking weed in stairwells, people sleeping in hallways, and buildings that reek of weed with roaches crawling in the halls it seems they are renting to anyone. New residents will throw their trash on the floor instead of walking it to the dumpster which is causing the roach issue but management says nothing to them. The parking lot is full of trash every morning. Loud fights, arguing and music in the parking lot all night every night. Maintenance is non existent these days with the front door and fire door being broken and non locking lately, refusal of management to provide services that were provided in the past. They change policy without notifying residents and expect us not to be upset. They don't hesitate to raise the rent every year though. If I had to recommend it I would say make sure you rent in the 3200 building as it is kept much cleaner and maintained… See More>

                        My husband and I have lived here for almost two years now. We live in the front building where the rental office is located. We both love it here. Every time I call or go to the rental office everyone is always friendly and efficient. Maintenance is also very good. When ever there's a problem with the apartment they always come the same day. We did have a mouse in our apartment but maintenance took care of that. The location is great and the neighborhood isn't bad. I have never had any problems walking to and from Naylor Road station even when it's late. I would recommend this place to anyone

                          At first I wasn't going to leave a review. But once the corporate office cost me money by pulling back a check they issued me due to their mistake and could not extend patience. Even though as adults we spoke about and came to an agreement. They knew pulling the check would cause my account to go into overdraft tremendously. I live at Top of the Hill for almost 6 years paid my rent. They believed this Black woman would basically be dishonest and not uphold to what I said on the phone. I decided since Kay management doesn't give a ---- about me why should I give a ---- about them. Top of the hill is infested with mice. From 2015 until 2018 I found at least 10 dead mice in my apt and that does not include when I moved out how many we found! I had to remove mice dropping in my kitchen several times a day. Roaches made a frequent visits as if they were cousins coming to visit from down south. It got to the point I stopped cooking at home cause they were running through cabinets that stored my dishes and cookware. Everything was… See More>

                            I recently moved into building 3202. It's been over a month and items that we brought to their attention when we moved in have still not been fixed. Even when they did fix something the repair person left trash and old A/C parts all over the bedroom. The problem wasn't even fixed, we had to tell the management office again to get someone up here. Still can't open our bedroom window, kitchen cabinet doors that don't close, and shelves in the closet falling down among other things. Management is clearly only interested in doing things as cheap as possible. They make a big deal about the new bathtub glaze, which was starting to peel the day we moved in. The place was freshly painted. Painted so much that when we open doors paint would flake off the hinges. We had to replace the cable wall plate because it had been covered in paint. At least our apartment isn't as bad as the first one we saw, there they painted the refrigerator instead of replacing it. We were lied to when we signed up about their personal check policy, we ended up in an accident because we had to make an… See More>

                                The Top of the Hill Community is one of the better communities in the Temple Hills area if you want to compare crime issues between other apartment communities. Please understand that crime occurs everywhere, but it is not high in this community. Just random acts. Several of the tenants that have written bad reviews about this community have lived here for years and some are still living here (so that should tell you it's not as bad as they make it). I have been here 3 years and have not experienced a mouse or rodent problem. I have experienced basic problems (leaks, things breaking, etc) just like any other older apartment community. There is another apartment complex located on Naylor Rd which is next to this community that is in terrible condition which causes the possible rodent problem) Trash build up in the woods (which have been recently torn down), that could be the reason for the mouse issues in building 3208. The community is clean and very close to public transportation. Additional lighting has been added to the community and there is an over night security company on the property.

                                  I recently went to apply for an apartment at Top Of The Hill and felt that the staff there are very unprofessional! They surreptitiously talk about prospective renters income and credit history, even after the prospective renters have left the leasing office. I didn't appreciate hearing about other people's business! I certainly wouldn't want them sharing and talking aloud about mine! Since the leasing staff are representatives of the complex, I must say that I'm glad I'm not a resident at Top Of The Hill!!!

                                    I lived at this apartment for 6 years, unfortunately. I'm not sure why I did this to myself. I had my car broke into twice, I've heard of numerous robberies. Robberies in the hall, laundry room, lobby, parking lot, its ridicously dangerous. They have parking lot security but that doesn't stop anything from happening, only thing they can accomplish is getting your car towed. Now onto the rats and roaches, they are tenants at this apartment complex. There really is nothing you can do about it, they have an exterminator come around, every now and then but its not helpful at all. You pay for what you get, I moved in on a special. That special wasn't special at all. Everyone thinking about this place, get another thought and DO NOT MOVE HERE.

                                      I don't know what everybody's problem is with this place. It's fine. Here's the thing: you're obviously trying to move to DC and you're trying to do so cheaply. This is probably one of your best options. The cheaper places located on the hill actually have roach and bed bug problems. Here if a person doesn't keep their house clean they may have a roach problem. We have seen four mice in our two years here. Two of them were murdered by our cat (RIP). Yeah, mice are gross, but this is a giant apartment complex near DC, okay? You're going to see a mouse once or twice. They're not going to crawl on you in your sleep, they're not going to bite you and if you get a cat you'll only ever see them dead. They don't even get into our food which is placed on a shelf near the floor. Our cats however are not so polite. Also, the management also offers a WEEKLY bug spray if you have bug problems. That you don't take them up on that offer is your choice. We've never had a single problem with our neighbors. I've maybe heard an argument loud enough… See More>

                                        To be very honest I read the reviews re: Top of the Hills Apartments before moving here and was totally mortified! HOWEVER, I have found those reviews to be untrue. I moved from Atlanta without physically seeing the property and was pleased. I live in the 3200 bldg and my one bedroom apartment is spacious, clean, and everything works. I have not seen any insects or rodents. The bldg is very clean itself and quiet. I have not expereinced any "riff-raff" loitering anywhere on the property. I am pleased so far and look to live here in peace and also affordablely. I would like to give kudos to the office staff for their patience and prompt assistance. Lashawn, Felicia, Simone and Dee have treated me first class! I appreciate them being knowledgeable and courteous. Now with the good you must take the bad. I really would like management to fix the workout center so that I can utilize the equiptment. Lastly, NO! im not a paid endorsement, LOL, just a honsest resident reccomending the property.

I recenlty went into the office to speak with the staff becasue as of lately its gotten bad. i talked to the girl Leshaun or whatever her name is. I could not understand a word she said to me.

No rats/Mouse really no roaches.My building(3206) is quiet nobody never standing in the hallway just peaceful..well the only thing i can say is when i move n 3yrs ago my car got broken into. but since then they hired a different security company & i have no problem. the community is decent. The rental office can be petty sometime they switch staff alot here & there. But living wise its pretty good i had no problem as of yet & this is my 3rd year..My rent goes up $40 each year but hey thats like normal.

                                                The apartment space is nice but the community is terrible, its not safe for children to grow up in because of the violence and killings. There was always commotion in the middle of the night whether it was couples arguing or people pulling the fire alarm at 4 in the morning. There is a really bad pest problem. I'm a very clean individual and I kept complaining about seeing mice in my apartment. It was so bad that I was scared to come home because of seeing mice. When I called maintenance to come fix the problem they laughed at me. Parking is also the worst, there is never parking for visitors which causes them to park on the street which is unsafe. I am so happy to move. I guess they were wrong when they say you get what you pay for.

                                                  I have lived in building 3206 for the last 2 years and I have to say I love it since the day I moved in. I have read past reviews and its a shame that people went thru the things they did. I haven't seen a rat/mouse. You can pick your neighbors but most are pretty respectful. There aren't teens hanging around so that's a plus. No crimes on the property itself (that I am aware of) and the property staff is pretty on point with most of the requests given. I just wish we could have dogs on the property.
