Resident • 2016 - 2017
If you're on the apartment hunt, just skip Harborside Manor and look elsewhere.
I lived in a two bedroom apartment for about 5 months before I had to break my lease and move out. Here are some pros and cons to break it down for you.
Large living room
Built in air conditioners (One in living room, one in master bedroom)
Ceiling fan in dining area.
Common hallway, no private entrances.
You can smell EVERYTHING.
You can hear EVERYTHING.
Musty, dingy apartment that was not cleaned thoroughly before move-in.
Blue or tan tubs.
Tile throughout bathroom. (On the walls)
Neighbors are not the friendliest (perhaps just our building)
Neighbors are not clean and do not care about the property.
Maintenance does not clean the grounds. The same Mountain Dew bottle was on the ground in front of our building for weeks when we moved in. The same goes for a dirty diaper that has been on the ground in front of our building for about a week. It's probably still there.
The carpet is not plush, it feels old and uncomfortable.
The carpet and linoleum were filthy upon move-in and turned our feet and socks black.
The apartment had a horrible smell the whole time I lived there no matter what I did to resolve the issue. Upon move-out, the smell attached to anything fabric which resulted in having to throw a lot of personal items away, including furniture.
While every building has its own laundry room there are only two washers and two dryers for the whole building (like 15 apartments or something). This could be fine but the whole time I lived there only 1 washer and 1 dryer worked properly. I put in a work order for each about 4 times and every time it was supposedly fixed I was rewarded with having to waste more money and time on an extra cycle because the same issues were never actually resolved.
As you can see, the cons greatly outweigh the pros for Harborside Manor. So, just skip this property and continue your search elsewhere.
