    The absolute worst place I've ever lived in. Poor/rude management and staff, basically no maintenance since no one EVER came to fix anything, actual roaches in our building from other apartments, rude neighbors, noisy, and just overall very unpleasant. When you move out I guess make the place better than you found it because whatever is broken that no one ever came to fix you will get charged for. Would never EVER move back here, even if you paid me to. Wouldn't recommend living here for anything no matter how cheap the rent is. Not worth stepping on needles outside, overflowing garbage bins, hallways that reek of weed, or office staff that just does not care about the safety/wellbeing of your family.

      Moved in August. It's now June one of my toilets needs to be replaced, but still has not been replaced. It's 80 degrees in my townhouse and the ac doesn't work, office said it might be months before it'll get addressed. Terrible for 1000 a month in rent.

        This is absolutely the worst place you could rent at. 1. I’m convinced that the people in the office just don’t have phones at this point because they never answer my calls 2. Called maintenance and guess what nothing got fixed 3. Went to go pay my rent and can’t pay online. I go pay in person and they’re closed (in the middle of the day. 3 p.m.) 4. Went back the next day at 2 they were again closed so I had to wait for someone to walk into the office to pay my rent. 5.they tell me I can only pay online after this So after all of this here I am a month later not being about to pay online, not being able to pay in person, and nobody answers the phone. Honestly even if you wanted to stay here I don’t know how you would but definitely don’t. I’m pretty sure the only reason people even work in that office is to tell people they have a job because no one in that office knows what they’re doing.

          This is the worst place I've ever lived, moved here because the rent was cheap, not even worth it, I will be out of here as soon as I can! Maintenance never fixes anything, when I keep making requests; I'm told they won't fill out any more maintenance forms because I've already made the same requests for SIX months and not one person has been in here to look at anything. There is constantly trash everywhere on the grounds. The hallways are always trashed, people hangout and smoke in the hallways. There's constant screaming and noise from all my neighbors! I've had stuff stolen from my porch and front door. The staff is incredibly rude when I go in there with nothing but respect and kindness and patience! There was mold in my apartment since I moved in and nothing will be done about it, my toilet wouldn't flush for over a week before we had to fix it ourselves because no one would fix it. There's huge gaps in our porch door so the heat just goes right out, they refuse to fix that even though it's also been broken since we moved in. Save yourself the trouble and… See More>

            Pipes break and takes a year to fix. I asked if they would salt in the back where I lived (120) and they told me they only salt the front.... (so basically just for looks) I have to call REPEATEDLY for maintenance. Mold from water leaks above me and they just say it's not mold and to paint over it... the staff is nice though... even though they dont do anything and NEVER pay rent in the drop box and always have a receipt! The 1st month I moved in I had an eviction warning for not paying rent and thank god I had my receipt for it!. Cops ALWAYS here, like daily. I could keep going, but if your broke... its cheap, bout all the good is here.

              Please listen to all of the bad reviews. Maintenance takes months to come out and even address an issue. The office will not return phone calls. The grounds are poorly kept and they do not enforce their rules. Do not move here unless it is your only option.

                Terriable as of recently. Undafe conditions. Water shut off everyother week. Repairs not done. Office staff rude. Only good thing is emergency MAINTENANCE. They come quick and are courteous and do their best in the middle of the night.

                  I am a travel nurse and made the mistake of accepting to move into these apartments when I was out in Maine over last summer. They lied from day 1. I asked for a ground floor 1 bedroom apartment with a patio, my application was paid for and submitted but when I called back the following week after they had my money I was told that apartment was not available but they gave me a deal on a 2 bedroom, I was offer a ground floor or 3rd floor apartment. I chose the ground floor as I didn't want to move furniture up 2 flights I also asked about their maintenance staff do to numerous bad reviews online and was told new management has improved there maintenance department, I also asked about safety as there we many negative comments about that. "oh no that has been improved also, I've not heard of any complaints about it not being a safe area.". I arrived picked up my keys and immediately noticed the grounds look nothing like the pictures online. The area is very run down and old looking apartments. My apartment was not ground level is was a sub ground floor… See More>

                    The arbors of battle creek might seem like a good idea because it's cheap. But even at it being cheap it is still the ABSOLUTE WORST place you could live. There has been mold in my mother in laws apartment for 6 months (she has cancer mind you) They came "fixed it" and the mold is right back again. But dont complain about it otherwise they will claim that you never paid your Bill's , or pet deposit like they have done with her. Also dont put things in the drop box or they will say that they have no proof of it and you wont have a receipt.

                        I would say it's spacious and decent price but be prepared for certain things, some apartments have the smell of certain drugs in the halls, and that the maintenance is not the quickest there is quite a few potholes in the driveway but beyond that the place is very decent

                          I have lived her for a little over a year and a half now and I have to say that I don't agree with the other comments that have been made about arbors. I have had to have maintenance come in and fix a few things that were broken or damaged and the staff was there within a day. The noise is something I expected from an apartment complex where people are all around you, that is not unusual! The office staff has been helpful and are there if I need anything or have an emergency. The location and area are great and I really do say that for the price it is worth living here.

                            The maintenance on the units is way subpar with the lack of communication between the tenant and office staff being non-existent. I am aware of a present tenant that is getting a absolute run around regarding getting an item repaired in the unit. Office staff and management seems to have no concern regarding the situation.

                              One of the best places I have rented in a while. From the professionalism to the amazing floorplans it was everything and more. They have a fun filled fitness center with a basketball court for family fun. Great place that is close to the community.

                                I would recommend living here. Never had any issues with neighbors or staff. Maintenance was available when I needed them and resolved any problems I had. And it's the most reasonably priced development in the area.

                                  It's as bad as everyone says. I can vouch, starting off with first impression when I moved in: first no, no that came to sight were the pot-holes. They were/is a monstrosity about roughly 5 feet wide and several inches deep. Those pot-holes were/are so bad people literally swerved around the pot-holes to avoid their cars dipping in them, I walked, so I have to prevent from tripping in them. Secondly, cleanliness; It's pretty dirty at the Arbors. At first I honestly thought people's views were a bit of exaggeration, I was wrong. cockroaches, unrepared and faulty utilities, unsalted patios during the winter and simply not a very hospitable environment. Seems like a lot of fights break out at the Arbors every now and then. Maintenance staff are HIGHLY unprofessional. One of the apartments that were empty maintenance could be heard on the other end of the apartment adjacent to the one I was in. Cussing, smoking god knows what (smoke seeped through the walls) and had music on. (?) There's much more I could put down, but it would be writing a novel than a review.

                                    Worst place I have ever lived! The office staff is rude and inconsiderate (talked badly about current residents to me while applying for residency, I knew the people they were talking about) they allow violent felons to live in units without being on the lease, the maintenance staff will steal from you and go through your belongings and break more than they fix. Not to mention the year long waiting list to get my air conditioning and heat fixed as they only have one person qualified to work on the system. parking lot filled with potholes with no attempt to actually fix the problem. no lighting in the parking lot at all so the school has moved the bus stops along a very busy road. My Fiance and neighbors had to be the ones to shovel and salt walkways in the winter because maintenance wouldn't do it. very limited parking with less parking spaces than units per building near the building (if you don't mind parking two blocks away though you're fine!) lots of parties in the parking lot, broken down washers and dryers that are a fire hazard as the internal lint traps never get cleaned. nonworking smoke detectors… See More>

                                      Big pot holes, garbag everywhere, the outside of the buildings are falling apart. One burned last week. Probably because the furnace doesn't get inspected ever. at least 10 cars have had the windows smashed out since I've lived here. To get things fixed you have to call code compliance. The office staff lies to get you to go away when you need maintenance. I went a week with no shower! A month without air conditioning in July. The sidewalks don't get salted or cleaned in the winter. There's mold on my patio. It's been there since I moved in.

The only 'repairs' I had done were those done by the city contractors that said 'more' would show later the others haven't showed. One of the buildings have just caught fire because guess what they didn't maintain the fire alarm system. Don't stay here. Run as fast as you can. I have had a lot of moves and I am pulling funds to move faster then originally intended. I wouldn't wish this place on anyone I detest.

If they can't uphold their end of the lease I can't uphold mine. I pay my rent, pay all my bills, and follow the rules. The issues are below: 1. 2 days after I moved in the handle on the stove broke. Well I called the office they said a work order would be put in. I have lived in Apartments and that is normal. I expected it to be fixed within a few days. It was 2 months later they finally came and fixed it. 2. The people above me let their children run back and forth as if they were in a race and don't care. This goes on all hours of the night. I said something to the office twice. Finally I sent an email to corp, and they just forwarded it on to the office here. Nothing has changed. 3. The sliding door you have to struggle with the get open or closed. I hate to see what happens if there is a fire and you have to go out that… See More>

I'm tired of this ------ piece of crap!! Don't ever move here! The locks on the buildings don't work, the buzzers break every other day, the neighbors are obnoxious, there's cockroaches in the hallways and fleas everywhere. If you have pets you better keep the flea medicine on them or else your house will be infested

                                                I live in the Arbors II, and I love it. Have been here for nearly 2 years; have fantastic neighbors, has a community feeling. Had to call maintenance once, and they were there within the day. Management keeps the grounds updated, and is in the process of painting, power washing, and redoing the parking lot. For the price, our apartment is perfect. Dogs can get a little loud, but if that's the worst of my issues i'm happy!!

We moved here April 2013 within the first two weeks I fell in the shower putting a hole in the shower wall. I was told by management that they would have to call a contractor. I was fine with that at least it would be done right. Well it's almost October and the hole is still not fixed. We now have mold growing in our shower because if the hole. The photo shown is of our kitchen sink. We turned the water on and it came out like this. We called the office an they told us we have to let the water run for 10-20 min and if it still comes out green to keep doing until it runs clear and if it's still doing it by Monday to give them a call. Seriously?! To add issues to the list our building fort door has never locked, whats the pout in having an intercom entry when the door doesn't lock. We've complained countless times about our neighbors and nothing has been done. This is the most… See More>
