Spanish Trace Apartments
Resident · 2013
Incredible Location! This place is right in the middle of Raleigh, all of the shopping centers (Cameron Village, Crabtree Valley, Whole Foods, etc.) are within five minutes of the apartments and you can walk down the street to get to NC State if you want to. My roommate and I moved into a two bedroom two bath a few months ago and everything has gone perfectly. The maintenance guys (who seem to know everyone by name) put in new counter-tops, new carpet, and new tile and repainted the entire apartment before we moved in and it looks great (I'm trying to keep it clean). Everything in the apartment works, no maintenance issues at all. All of my neighbors seem really friendly but everything's also really quite. I never hear any noise at all from outside my apartment except for one afternoon a week when the grounds guys mow the lawn. That might have something to do with the way the apartments are built- the floor under the carpet is made of concrete instead of wood, so sound doesn't travel into the units around you. Best of all, the price is great, we got a two bedroom apartment with all utilities paid for less than my college dorm room cost me (and that dorm room was only a little bigger than the walk in closet in my apartment). Plus we have a gas stove, which I love because every other place I've stayed at had electric stoves and they were always breaking and getting dirty. We also got a washer and dryer in an apartment, which is great. The complex has a laundry room building that everyone can use (think it's 50 cents to wash and dry) but I definitely wasn't going to walk all the way to that when the staff offered to install a stack-able washer and dryer before I moved in. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone of any age looking for a clean, quiet apartment in an awesome location. Plus it's a pretty cheap price.
