As a whole I have enjoyed my time at Somerset this is the third apartment I've had since I moved in I believe I have been here around seven years total now it has improved each year I have been here. Early on there was concerns that made me want to move out but instead I just transferred to another apartment and since then things have been better the main concerns now have AR maintenance request not May the dressed or sometimes not completed where I live used to have mice mice at the start I was able to get that problem solve Myself by Glue boards hopefully now work orders for maintenance jobs will be completed and taken care of more quickly when reported.

          Lived here 8 years and the first few years were ok never had any issues. Then with new owners and the management and staff in the office the place went down hill fast. They took away all the benefits of living in an apartment. Most people move into apartments because some utilities are included they took all the away which caused everything to go up. There ac and heat is a joke. The AC always leaks and instead of changing the ceiling tiles they just paint over them unless they completely crumble. The management and staff in the office is rude. When I turned my keys in the lady in the office was rude and had an attitude so my daughter even made a comment when we was leaving that she was glad we was out of that place. Teenagers and kids run around the halls at all times playing with people's doors. It's a mess I would never recommend this place to anyone.

            The office staff was very helpful. We looked at the newly remodeled unit and it was beautiful. I can't wait to be a resident! Apartments are spacious; clean and very accessible to just about everything.

              I moved out after 1 yr and would not recommend this place to anyone. It's a shame because the units are large and well designed and it COULD be a great place if it was well managed...but it's not. Cigarette butts and trash everywhere, kids running wild at all hours, neighbors fighting...and if you're in a ground floor unit, anything you put on your patio will get swiped or vandalized. Back in the 70s when Summerset was built, I'm sure it was a great community, but that was a different era and now it's just a mini hood.

                  My family and I moved here about a year ago. We love it here! The office personnel has been very helpful. Any maintenance issues that have occurred have been taken care of in a timely manner. Very spacious floor plans. Indoor pool. Weight room and a sauna. Well lit. Pretty quiet. It really is a Great place to call home. My family and I highly recommend it. :)

                    Absolutely WORST place EVER! Management is very rude, maitanence takes days to fix things! Our fridge went out and it didnt get fixed for days so all of our food we had just bought, had to get thrown away. Management was very disrespectful about them having to fix a fridge when its their responsibility to fix in the first place! They are terrible about bringing pest control in! they have a bunch of fleas and roaches and wont take care of it!They are definitely way to over priced and we will NOT be signing another lease.

                      Do not move here. Horrible management who obviously have utterly no clue what they're doing, even worse maintenance men that take 3 months to do something as simple as replace the light above my sink. AC has not worked properly all summer, I've called many times about it. Finally they got someone here around 430 pm on a Friday, the guy took my ceiling tiles all down poked around for about 5 minutes and then decided to leave my apartment for the weekend with the ceiling tiles still laying on the floor after telling me he'd be right back. If I did something like that at my job I would be fired on the spot. Not to mention he didn't fix the issue! Then when I called to ask if he was coming back they acted like I was a moron for even asking. This is only one example of the many I've experience with the completely incompetent management at this apartment complex. DO NOT MOVE HERE. If I could give it a negative rating I would. There's a reason this place has 2 stars and can't fill all their apartments, HEED THE WARNINGS.

                        This apartment is just bad. Lived here for 1 year. Reading the good comments on here, I just know that it's the managers writing all them good comments. Walls are chipping paints, carpets are cheap (ripping the first 2 months I moved in). Most managers are nice but there is that one that is a biitch. Thus place is filled with roaches. Every morning/noon/night that I wake up or goin off to bed. I'll have to spray ants spray and kill hundreds of it. Moving soon. I don't recommend this place to anyone, especially family with little kids. Should ask neighbors how the apartment is before moving there. Even people that works at the 7'11 gas station can tell you how awful the place is, and they don't even live there. Nasty place to pick for living. It's cheap, but dirty.

                          First of all price is way to high for something that looks worse than the hood, office staff makes fun of everyone when they think no one is paying attention, can't seem to hold on to maintenance personal. Parents don't watch their kids so they are running amok all hours of the day and night., So many druggies and you can smell pot anytime of the day or night. Large breeds that are not allowed here are living here, but the office staff doesn't seem to care. Can't address your concerns or you are a trouble maker. We left on our own after our lease was up, and they tried screwing us over . Don't move here, it pretty much trash .

                            1 year lease was a nightmare! I was charged a pet fee for four months after he was gone with no compensation. New loud neighbors dog pisses in the hallway and deficates on the sidewalk while I received a 50$ fine for it. Don't forget the lack- luster weight room, forget about the pool area. Oh.. almost forgot about the loud drunk neighbors and quiet, creepy meth-heads. Oooops! And the roaches! Unacceptable at these prices!

                              I currently live here and would never recommend to anyone. Do not moce here! Since we have lived here our washer and dryers in the laundry room have broke several times each time they want you to call a repair man the staff won't have it fixed for you. When they do finally get it fixed its WEEKS later. Since we have lived here our air conditioning has stopped working at least 5 times 2 of which were at least weeks until they had it fixed. The staff is rude and the people are trash. They let their kids run around all hours and scream and cuss. We will be moving as soon as our lease is up and I'm sure they will find a way to screw us on that too!

                                I wish I would have gotten on here to read reviews about this place before I moved here. But I am not from around here and the property appeared to be nice. The office staff answering the phones are SO rude I can't imagine after all of the complaints why they would keep such a rude team member. The neighbors are disgusting, constantly loud and doing drugs in the hallways.

                                  I currently live here. I would not recommend this place unless you do not give a damn about the kind of people you live around. Yesterday, while sitting outside at 430 pm, I heard a woman SCREAM "bull ------- ---- you did" then I heard a child cry. She was clearly in another building and far away. My car has been vandalized, and the laundry facilities STINK (as in smell bad and make my clothes smell bad). I hear adults screaming and fighing and see unsupervised children playing in dumpsters. Pet owners let their 55 lb dogs crap on my tiny patch of grass. (That weight limit is b.s.) Childen and adults stomp up and down the stairs loudly proclaiming personal business. I hear more cussing (from adults aimed at children) than a late night HBO special. My upstairs neighbor runs the vacuum at 11pm on a regular basis. Also, (s)he blasts bad music, curses non-existent stimuli and praises Jesus-- all loudly and at 2 am. I can't take it anymore. If this is all you can afford, invest in some ear buds for your sanity and find a board… See More>

                                    I concur with the other negative reviews. It is currently 82 degrees outside and 89degrees in my apartment. I cannot continue to sleep with my windows and balcony door open bevauy it is killing my kid's asthma. There is constant trash outside all over. The dumpsters always look awful. There is broke bottles in multiple areas of the parking lot. The office staff rarely answer the phones. I have had to call multiple times for maintenance requests. The office staff treats tenants like second class citizens. The laundry facilities are often out of service. I will not be sticking around. The apartments are spacious but certainly not worth it.

The maintenance team has become SO lazy these past several months. The office staff is extremely rude and unprofessional. If you call them for any sort of issue they act as though you are an inconvenience. I'd never advise anyone to live here! Ever. This is no place for children to grow up! Not to mention the warm weather is upon us and they will not turn on the air conditioning until they see fit.

People in the office are RUDE. Nothing but crack heads and non-working residents live here. Kids run around parking lots with no supervision ALL the time. Child pron is recorded in some of the lower level units. PLEASE DO NOT MOVE HERE!

                                          We moved in 4 months ago and this place is awful! They showed us a amazing apartment before we signed the lease and then we signed it they gave us the keys to our apartment we went up and look at it and it was horrible! The tile was coming up, siding was coming apart, one of our toliet leaks, the window sills are rotting, etc...so that very day I called to make sure they weren't mistaken well they said if I wanted to move I would have to sign a 200$ transfer fee!!!!!!!! The office workers are the rudest most unpleasant people I have ever come in contact with especially the manager. The kids run around our parking lot cussing, beating each other up, shooting bb guns, and we have caught them messing with cars! Police are always always here. Trash is always all over the parking lot and grass areas. When we moved in also we didn't have closet doors well the maintenance came in 4 months later and installed the doors. We went to open the "new" doors they started falling off the hinges we couldn't get in our closet!!! The way they do the electric… See More>

I have had police knock on my door about the neighbors and seen other neighbors get hauled out in patty wagons and my upstairs neighbors are loud at all hours of the night. The apartment complex rarely sends out a bill/statements. Only good thing is the maint. Dept they fix rhings pretty fast but i would totally not recomend living here.

                                              I moved in almost two years ago. Nice spacious apartment and cheap rent. Then that's where it ends. When the windows were replaced, the people who replaced them left their lunch trash in my apartment, ruined my curtains, broke things in my daughters room. Sigh. Then, the kids, man if you don't like kids and noise, don't bother. Yes I have kids, but there are several who are allowed to run rampit through the halls, slamming doors so hard, that your floor shakes, and call then you are supposed to call security LOL. They are so noisy, leaving trash, dirtying up the halls, tracking huge amounts of mud in everywhere, writing on rails, dirty walls, no one wants to have company over based on the appearance of the building they have to walk through. Washers or dryers don't work half the time, the floor in front of our washer, if you step on it, you smell sewage from the multiple backups that have happened. Terrible. Now, I have roaches on the top damn floor. O HELL TO THE NO. Granted I have only seen 4 I have complained about them, I have kids with allergies and asthma, my sink STILL… See More>

                                                Overall I say agree with the rest of the reviews as far as office staff. i wish i could use names, but the office staff is very rude! This place was just bought Again and they are unfortunately keeping the same staff! (sad face) my only hope is when my lease is over. the summers here are miserable. The trashy kids run around the halls screaming at all hours of the night. i had one problem with roaches but these are low income apartments. However I am not low income i moved here for the location. Move here is you dare but be prepared to have office STAFF TO TREAT YOU AS A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN, hot hot summers, your car to be vandalized, and things to constantly break!

                                                  This place is trash! Cars getting broken into. My neighbor complaining about roaches. If the weather is below 80 degrees they shut off your ability to use the air conditioning. Yes! You read that right! They shut off the ac and do not allow you to use it if its 78 degrees outside. Doesn't matter if you have asthma, or are disabled. I don't see why they do this when they bill you for the utilities anyway. Why do they care if I like my apartment at 69 degrees? I'll pay whatever the cost but instead they shut it off. The NEW owners are actually worse then the last they never just randomly shut off the air conditioning. I suppose we are their own personal ant farm. When calling A (one of the managers) in the office she for help with maintenance she acts as though you are an inconvenience to her time. Parking is a joke! They don't inforce anything so don't bother paying extra for a covered space. The laundry rooms are dirty, the pool is not taken care of properly. I could fo on and on. I do not recommend this socialist apartment complex to anyone.
