Capitol Villa Apartments (and all DTN apartments for that matter) is awful. This apartment complex was ridiculously overpriced and the neighbors are very noisy. In addition, the management is terrible and has no respect for personal privacy. One day, when I was at work, they gave… See More

This is by far the worse place that I have ever lived. The apartment has had a mildew smell since I have moved in that resulted in respiratory issues. It wasn't until I moved into my friends house (since I couldn't break rent) that I finally… See More

If you are a party animal, this place will be your heaven. If you are a normal human, this place will be your hell. Basically, leasing office doesn't care or help you with anything at all.
