Resident 2018 - 2020


I'm a resident of 2+ years and I will NOT be renewing my lease. The apartments have black mold, cockroaches and awful plumbing that clogs and leaks frequently. The windows leak and it's impossible to hold heat and keep apartments warm in the winter. The property is disgusting. Garbage and recycling bins are constantly overflowing allowing garbage to be blown all over the property. PET WASTE IS OUT OF CONTROL. I understand it's the pet owners responsibility to clean up after their pet, but if they don't do it then Management or Maintenance should be keeping the property clean. The amount of feces on this property is unhealthy and unforgivable. Onsite Management has a very poor attitude. Any concerns about the property or requests for maintenance are met with resistance and an attitude of discomfort. I have taken my concerns directly to the Onsite Property Manager and I find her to be incompetent and careless. The more I heard from my neighbors I realized that I was not alone in my disgust with the property or dealings with management.

    Very noisy apartments. Stairwell noise was rolling thunder. You are at mercy of neighbors and if they turn bathroom wall fan on it is like a lawnmower going off in your apartment and for as long as they please, all night sometimes. Had to wear earplugs at night. Toilet flushing by neighbors was a mini explosion and the person upstairs always had to go. Could hear that too. Did see a couple roaches. It is sandwiched between 2 busy roads and is butted up against hwy 26. Can hear thr traffic day and night. Units inside are ok. Good washers and dryers. Office lady was rude when i gave notice.

      cockroaches! It's a nice apartments. I live here more than 6 years in 2 different units. But the problem is cockroaches! They do call pest control to spray for it twice per year and it cost $130 (for two treatments) and they charge residents for it no matter what. I know few people complain same thing. Same problem with mold. They change residents for it also. I tried to to explain it's not my fault. I'm a truck driver and don't carry even food at home. I always keep apartment nice and clean but they still charging me extra. Disappointed.

        First lets start with the positives, the maintenance people are awesome, knowledgable, friendly and timely. The rooms are larger than most apartment complexes in the Gresham area. Now the cons after living here for 4 years our rent has gone from 700$ to 1200$ per month. There are still leaking gutters that make a loud noise right outside our first floor apartment that keeps me awake (request to fix put in 6 times over the last 3 years.) The inside of the apartment when something goes bad is fixed, like I said, however the lack of insulation in the walls and the leaky window seals, mean that the archaic heating system is constantly running through the winter with the thermostat set at a balmy 58 degrees ( the last months electricity bill was 170$, when normally its 60$). If you don't get a parking spot before 6pm you will not get one. The "luxurious" exercise room is a huge open space with a basic treadmill and elliptical. The pool is poorly maintained chemically and generally. The kids area play structure has no ground safety mats and does not seem to be maintained as safe for children. The cable access for… See More>

          I've lived in AM for about a year now and have no complaints! It's very decent for the price even though the rent keeps going up. It's very well maintained and clean around the complexes. It's super quiet and calm every single day. I love the area. My one bedroom is very decent sized and has lots of big nice windows for natural light. Can't beat the view from my balcony either!

            AWFUL. 3 words, BED BUG INFESTATION. They had multiple chances to get it fixed, I have NEVER had a problem with bugs until I moved there! DO NOT rent from them

              The complex is not a bad place, the noise level is tolerable, but to be expected living in apartments, very nice neighbors, it is not a bad place to live, sometimes it takes a little longer for maintenance to get to you, but I think they need a bigger crew, the gym equipment in the older section seems to not work quite frequently, but they upgraded the equipment across the street so I go there, I would not call their kitchens Gourmet, but maybe that's because I am in the older section, but all in all it's an ok place to live.

                I used to live at Holly Ridge on Powell. Let me tell you, ALPINE MEADOWS is WHERE ITS AT SON! There are 2 sides to AM. The older side has parking problems, and alot of --------. The newer side has more ----- people, and ALOT more parking spots ( I think AM did this strategically) although you'll occasionally see the ------- slip by on the other side. The hot tub on the newer side kinda blows but hey it gets done. These guys have a NO pet policy, but it doesn't stop anyone from having pets, It's kind of under a DONT ASK DONT TELL policy. The Management doesn't seem to care about pets, neither do the maintenance. There was a good manager working there, he may of had personal problems, but he was a great people person, his name was ----. The maintenance staff is pretty fast at fixing stuff, although you may not get new parts. I've had little to no problems at this place. They do Annual inspections, which is basically a 5 minute walkthrough, which they check lights smoke detector stuff like that. I've got 5 co workers who live at these apartments too, 4 out of the… See More>

                  My boyfriend and I have lived at Alpine Meadows for about a year now. We used to have a one bed, one bath and although the one bedrooms are small, they're pretty decent for the price. The management has always been super nice to us and have always come and fixed anything that we needed fixed. When we moved across the street into a two bed two bath, I will say that they did not clean the bathrooms very well. The master bath had a little mold in the shower, but overall it was pretty clean. We've been on the middle floor in both apartments and the upstairs neighbors can be NOISY when they walk around, but they have two little girls, and children like to run around. But that's what you get for living in an apartment. As far as car break ins, I've never heard or seen it happen. Although for a while there was a stolen car dumped in the parking lot, but they got it towed right away once I notified them. Overall, this place is decent. The management is super nice, can take a couple days to fix stuff, but it's a large complex. And… See More>

                      Great Apartments!

                      My wife and I moved in here after we got married and we absolutely loved it. It's very well maintained, the management is very kind and helpful, it's very safe, and surprisingly, considering the size of the complex, it's very quiet and peaceful. We had a few minor issues with maintainence during our 1 year stay and they were quick to fix whatever problem we were having (even in the middle of the night when our water heater burst!) The prices are great compared to other apartments in the area. The pools are nice, the hot tub feels great, and the dry sauna/clubhouse is a nice addition as well. We were sad to leave our 1st "home" but we're moving away for school! This place was great and you won't be disappointed.

                        Very nice complex. parking a pain, and not a fan of the decor but all and all excellent.

                        Ive lived here just over a year, and i have little to no compliants. This has been my first place so I honestly dont really have anything to compare it too. That said i really enjoy the place. maintence was always very quick and the office, although randomly missing throuout the day, was helpfull when avalible. No noise from our nighbors almost ever. The grounds were always kept clean, over all it is a ver nice place. That said, the parking is pretty bad, often had to park in the other side of the complex but i think thats a problem nearly everywhere. I was not a fan of the light fixtures or carpet but thats pretty minor. They let you pain the walls which is nice, and i never felt unsafe. granted im a guy, my female roomates said they had a few creepy run ins walking back to the door but all in all nothing major. The one major problem i do have is that it is literaly right next to us 26, and the noise can be unbearble at times if your not used to it. after awhile i got used to it though, and any apartments… See More>

                          Nice place to live

                          I have lived at Alpine Meadows for almost 4 years. I am relocating and am leaving but would definitely rent from here again. My only complaint is that the parking isn't well thought out. There is only one assigned spot and extra spots are few and far between and it's hard to get an empty spot near your apartment. It is only a short drive to various different shopping centers, but is far enough away so there isn't a lot of noise. The management is always friendly and on top of repairs and maintenance. It is a good place to live and call home.

                            Fantastic Management and knowledgeable maintenance crew

                            I lived at Alpine Meadows in 1998 and loved it. My studio apartment was sparkling clean when I moved in. The management was always courteous. I moved and got married, when we moved back to Gresham years later we decided to move into Alpine Meadows since I had such a nice experience with them previously. I liked the management even better the second time. They worked with our move in timeline. The apartment was very clean upon move in date. We lived there for 2 years and were always treated with respect. If I had a plugged shower drain or something needed fixing, I called the office and the maintenance crew was at my apartment withint 24 hours. They are knowledgeable so I did not have to keep calling them back to fix things again and again. I have lived in many apartments and this one has the best management staff and maintenance crew I have ever worked with. They are also quick to take complaints of noisy neighbors and solve the problem within a few hours time. One thing I really liked is that noisy partier neighbors did not… See More>

                              This place is alright

                              Ive lived here for 2 1/2 years and let me tell you, that is the longest Ive lived anywhere in my adult life (Im 26). This place is quiet, affordable and in a good location...15 min from Sandy/Boring. There was a short period where my car got broken into along with a few others but that has since passed. I had an issue with my dishwasher leaking and molding the wall inside the cabinet. That caused some bugs to start living there. They came to fix it and when they didnt completely fix it the first time they came back the same day and worked on it until it was complete. The elementary school is right down the street and I must say it is an awesome school. So all in all I would recommend this place to anyone with children who are on a short budget.

                                Okay where to start. The apartments are ok. Ok enough that we lived there for two and a half years. I'm not going to lie, and say the are little cracker jack boxes, we had a three bedroom. They are pretty nice places It was me, my finance, her father (who has two types of cancer) and my fiance's six year old daughter. I'm not going to get into a big long speech about how we're the victim or anything like that. Let me just put it to you this way. No matter how long you've lived there, how consistant you are on paying your rent on time,(if not early)or how pleasant you are to all of your neighbors, management does not give a damn about you. When my truck was stolen, not broken into but STOLEN. I told the management what heppend and advised they might want to let people know what happend, they didn't care. They did nothing. I wasn't there to complain, I just thought they should have given everyone a heads up, a couple days later another car was stolen, again, they did nothing. We ran into a little… See More>

                                  This place is ok if you can live with rude management, they are so nice to you until you move in and have to bug them to get something fixed. I'm looking for a new place right now and came across this web site and thought people should know the things i've experienced. Manager is nice but tends to avoid heavy situations (when the manager is needed the most). Assistants are just plan rude, if i met them when i moved in i would have never moved in. The Manager and location was the main reason i moved in. I wish i can say better things because i was happy when i moved in. but this place is ok (I would stay month to month in the beginning just in case, the cost would be worth it).

                                    I lived here for 2 1/2 years and the management was not nice especially on the weekend one lady was so rude to me all the time I still don't know how she has a job there my friend who still lives there says everytime she has to talk to her she just want to put in her notice and find a new place to live. My downstairs neighbor would always have parties during the week and on the weekends when I would call the after hour service which calls one of the on site workers and most of the time they never showed up to ask the people to quiet down. My neighbors house was broken in once and out of shock she called the manager who told her it wasn't his problem and to just call the cops her front door was broken down so you would think it was his problem knowing he had to replace it. I would never live here or recommend anybody here again.

                                      I have been living here at Alpine Meadows for about 7 months... I find this to be one of the best apartments I have ever lived in!!! The units are very roomy and tons of extra storage. Best of all cable is included in the price of rent. Rent prices are low and resonable for any size apartment! The staff is always helpful and friendly. The apartment might be over 10 yeras old but u could never tell!

                                        I was on a month to month contract seeing as I was living on my own and wasn't sure where my job would take me. In Dec 2008 I found out I was pregnant and all office staff knew I was. I received a notice on my door in the end of July saying I had to be out by mid- AUG and that they did not need a reason to kick me out- because I was on a month to month. My baby was due Aug 26th. Who would kick out an 8month pregnant woman without even an explanation! My car had been stolen from the complex 2 times. My apartment had been broken into the same week I got my notice. My upstairs naighbor also had her apartment broken into. Parking was horrible if you wanted to have a guest over. I can't tell you how many times I came home and had another car in my designated spot. Maintenance took way too long to fix things. And one time I was home sick with the flu and one of the maintenance guys just unlocked my door and walked… See More>

                                          Very down to earth staff, courtious, accomadating, and proffesional. Have lived at Alpine Meadows for 11 years now and have no complaints. Maintenance is always punctual, and the grounds are kept very clean. The apartments where designed with very nuetral colors so they are very nice to decorate. Alpine Meadows has a well kept pool and spa, as well as a nice fitness center. The 2 bedroom 2 bath we rent has an excellent layout. My wife and I are retired and decided to make Alpine Meadows our last home, we have been very happy, and are sure that we have made the right desicion. We recomend Alpine Meadows to all our friends and recomend to anyone who is looking for a new home.
