Walden Woods Apartments
Resident • 2010 - 2012 Not Recommended
I lived here for a little over two years and found the complex to be adequate for my needs in relation to my work and social life. The building was fairly quiet in terms of not having a rowdy younger crowd. It had your typical apartment noise in that I could hear people to the sides and above me talk/sneeze/cough/laugh etc. Most days/nights that common apartment noise wasn't a bother. There is quite a bit of noise from the train tracks off of Park Glen Road. The train comes twice a day usually at 7:30 AM and 5:30 PM so it makes your commute a pain if you get caught. There is a TON of car/truck noise on Park Glen Road going to and from the warehouse/office complex at the end of Park Glen Road. I would say that noise bothered me the most. The apartments are in desperate need of modernization. I went through two fridges while there because they appeared to be from the mid 1980's. Most of the appliances I've seen in my place and others within the building where just as old. They work ok, but not great. Maintenance requests where usually done on time. I did have a few occurrences where I had to hound the building manager for help. The maintenance staff where very friendly when they came into my apartment or I passed them in the hall. Parking was ample and if you have underground it's very well kept. The apartment managers, I had two while there, were both very unpleasant to deal with. They were both very neglectful to requests, conversations and general help in regards to the building. This was not a major impact on my daily life there, but during those key moments when I interacted with them they did so in an unprofessional and lazy manor. I'm most dissatisfied with year rent increases I experienced while living there. It was one of the factors in my decision to leave Walden Woods. I was also very displeased with the checkout process while I did leave. I expected some dings against me in the process, but never have I felt more nickel-and-dimed by a complex. A word to the wise, hire a professional to go over your apartment if you expect your full deposit back. In all the place was decent, but I wouldn't ever recommend it to a friend.
