Resident 2014 - 2015

I am so glad I moved out. Horrible dirty disgusting place to live. They say "renovated" apartment, it is not renovated, they are modified. Old appliances, colors don't match, floor have termite damage. Mold in walls. The buildings are falling down around you. Very disturbing and unhealthy environment. I would not recommend living here. Garbage is only picked up I believe once a week and garbage is on the ground. Never cleaned around gargbage area and you know what type of vermin that luck. Landscaping if that what you call it, bushes are dead. And the Laundry room, I never did my laundry here. Went somewhere clean!!

    I have not lived here long,however the problems I have heard from other tenants are crazy. NO heat in some apartments over and over and not hot water over and over. The property manager seems so very nice, until you have to deal with her on an issue with your apartment, It seems she makes you feel as if you did something wrong! They do not care and over and over the same issues. They are disrespectful and condescending. There have been issues with bed bugs. Laundry room is always dirty. The lawn tech's blow dirt all over your cars and it also get's inside your front door. They do not take care of your issues, they put a band aid over it. The windows are practically falling out and the floors have termite damage. No lie.

      I moved in here this past Novemebr 1, 2014. I must say that I love it here. To start, Margaret is just wonderful. With all she deals with, she always makes time and assures me that any issues will be addressed and they always are ASAP. All I have to do is email her and I get a response within a half hour. She truly cares about the residents and the property. Secondly, Felix is the on site maintenance worker who also lives on the premises. I have needed him for minor issues a few times and he is there ASAP. I never saw a person care so much and work so hard to make sure we are happy. He has shoveled, plowed snow round the clock. I never have to pick up a shovel again. Lol. Another example, it was chilly in my apt recently because the heat was shut down for the season and all I had to do was email Margaret, and the heat was back on within an hour. The grounds are kept nice and it's pretty quiet. There is always parking and the management is always on top of keeping up with… See More>

        I am going on my second year at Matawan Station Apartments and I must say that it has definitely been a great experience for me. The grounds are kept well and Margaret in the office is always a pleasure to deal with. In addition the maintenance crew works diligently at getting things taken care of in my apartment in a timely fashion. I would honestly recommend Matawan Station apartments to anyone looking for somewhere to live that is clean and safe for children. Also, transportation is within walking distance which makes it convenient for me to get to and from NYC for work everyday.

          I really don't know management must be writing these reviews, because its not like that here. I've been living at Matawan Station Apartments for two years now, hopefully this will be the last year, can't tolerate this any longer. First off, winter is just starting and the apartment is freezing, it's never warm, no heat at night, the radiators is either just warm or cold to the touch, we have a baby and she have to sleep with us because her room is freezing. Have to use a heater so the electric bill goes up. Don't complain about the heat it won't do any goid. Maintenance will come over to check, but the answer will always be oh it's warm, knowing that it's not. Talking to Margaret is a waste of time, she's polite when you first move in after that she is really not a nice person at all. For the price they charge for these apartments heat should not be a problem. The windows are the worst, can actually feel the air coming in. We had to put up plastic in the windows, that doesn't help if there's not enough heat inside. … See More>

                good experience!

                I just want to say living at Matawan Station Apartments was a wonderful experience. It was a comfort knowing that if i had a problem it was immediately addressed. There is a live in super that is friendly and so helpful. I never had to wait for anything to be fixed. The apartment is spacious and worth the money. Take the time to check this place out - I was a resident and would move back if needed. Hope that is testament enough to someone thinking about moving here.

                  Love living at Matawan Station

                  I was really concerned about moving to a new town but everyone at Matawan Station apartments was helpful and made my move easy. I love my new apartment and the location. The staff is very helpful and easy to work with. And they keep the grounds and apartments looking great. Best decision I've made, even my dog loves living here

                    Nice Place to Live

                    My fiance and I moved into Matawan Station Apartments a little over a year ago and we have been very pleased. We travel into Manhattan to work and the convenience to the train, without having to live in a big city is great. We have been happy with the maintenance - always getting anything repaired in our apartment within hours. The manager is very nice and always helpful. When we moved into our apartment, it was clean and we have had no problems with anything. I love the big kitchen and our "new" bathroom!!!

                                Okay, yes some people have had bed-bugs, but not everyone. It would be very difficult these days to find any apartment complex that had not, at some point, experienced these creatures. They are extremely hard to eradicate and there presence is not indicative of filth or squalor. For example, many luxury buildings in Manhattan report at least some residents having them. That being said, the management at Matawan Station tries to do something about it. They have pest control services stop by once a month, and additional measures are taken if your apt. has evidence of bugs. This complex is also very good about keeping good tenants and getting rid of bad ones. They seem to really care about who lives here and we have very much appreciated that. I do not think, as others have said, that the place is full of alcoholism and/or drugs. It is quiet and peaceful most of the time. Most people seem to be middle-class, working people. All whom I have met are quite nice and neighborly. You can find more luxury and better amenities, but Matawan Station is a very nice, affordable home. … See More>

                                    Previous Postings for Matawan Station Apartments

                                    Let me try to address some of these postings. First of all, alot of these postings are full of gossip and misinformation. For someone to move here in January and know all about the property is not possible. For someone to live here for ten years and hate it, makes no sense to me. When I read some of these postings, to me they seem completely ridiculous, which is why I have not responded to them prior. Now that I live here, I feel I must. Assigned Parking does not work. Even if I had a list of every resident's plate number, a guest could park in someone else's spot, and then what? Do we waste an hour of my time and the police department's time trying to figure out who is in your spot? No we don't, because the police and I are way too busy to do something like that. I walk my dog every day and night and I see empty parking spaces at all times. Not exactly in front of your apartment as you may like, but it's not like you are walking a long distance to get to your apartment. Bedbugs are an epidemic in this country. It… See More>

                                      Horrendous parking, bed bugs

                                      The apartments are actually pretty nice and spacious and the proximity to the train is excellent (best around). Most of the apts. have been renovated (kitchen and bath). However, the parking problem mentioned in earlier reviews is very true. There is no assigned parking, so if you work late you might be screwed. The bed bugs are also a big problem. The apartments have been infested for some time and they of course will not tell you that before you sign the lease (why would they?!). Just ask a few of the tenants and they'll be honest with you. Most of the tenants are pretty nice, but there seems to be drug use and lots of alcoholism. It seems to be pretty safe, but you'll not be living with the best class of people. The laundry facility is fine. There is keyed entry now (unlike in previous reviews). Management is fine. They aren't very friendly, but they get things done. They seem to want to improve the place and care about maintenance. Bed bugs are hard to eradicate and they do have pest control of some kind visit… See More>

                                        If the bed bug problem never existed I would have to say that things have gotten progressively better over time while living here. The maintenance man is great and management is quick to address problems when you call. Things have improved. The apartment is nice and the location excellent. It's too bad that this issue with the bed bugs came to be. The owner does address it, but you wonder if it will ever go away.

                                            10 years, is there any "new" affordable apartments that are safe to live anywhere? Bed bugs for almost 2 years,prior landlors knew.New landlord knows.Nasty landlord, 2007 lease added addendum listing several items that needed repair, still October 2008, nothing done. Noted concern about bed-bugs,they finally made it to our building afer 1 yr. 3 months, still in complex, I believe. You think they would have brains enough to exterminate the laundry room.I have researched bb and they are very common and since they took a certain pestiside off the market hard to kill....however,very unruley tennants, not very concern about others. Noisey, drug infested, booze infested. there are police and ambulance here all the time. Judy handled things better they anyone!! Miss Judy Days>>>. SO HOW LONG HAS THAT BEEN! All apartments have good and bad reviews, but do yourself a favor DON"T MOVE IN !! TOLD YA!

                                              There is a huge problem and it's only getting worse. Before you rent, knock on doors, go to every building and ask questions about this situation. I promise you that you will get honest answers. There are actual public records that confirm there is a problem with bed bugs in these buildings and have been for years. The situation is terrible. People are moving in only to find out there was a problem and has been for years, yet they are being blamed for bringing them in. New renters are throwing away brand new beds and expensive furniture that was recently purchased for their "new home." I only wish I did my homework before signing my lease. It's a nightmare. And, for the record, I am one of the few "professionals" living in absolute hell.

                                                This place gets a bad rap because one or two people have bedbugs. At least the landlord sends someone to help you out, most places ignore the problem. The apartments are upgraded with all new appliances and it's very quiet. That person that said the cops are here all the time is crazy. I work in Manhattan, so being able to walk to the train is great. Plus, I can have my dog with me and the laundry room is clean. Junior is always nice to deal with and Maria has a great sense of humor. Obviously, someone has a major chip on their shoulder. Get a life pulleezze...

                                                  When applying for my unit I was taken back by all the rules/policies regarding how many adults can occupy a unit, the salary requirements etc. I did not have any problem getting a unit and I knew I wouldn't; however, after renting for most of my life I thought, wow, this place is real tough, and as a new tenant I welcomed that. I came to find as we entered spring, and now summer that management clearly does not enforce this rule. There are town homes loaded with adults and there are an awful lot of children running around. It's so bad some days that I am wondering if there is a daycare being run out of the one unit. Is that legal in a rental community? It baffles me that management would not be stricter with their policies. Frankly, it's a disgrace. Once again it is apparent that it is more important to this group to have the units full than to have any disregard for the other good tenants who abide by the lease agreements. I only wish I had not believed all the bull handed to me… See More>
