At Park Forest Apartments, apartments themselves are exactly what you would expect for the rent. They are durable and a good empty slate for you to make your own. What makes this complex stand out, however, is the staff and the maintenance. While living in this… See More

This place is terrible. The appearance is old and crappy. The rent wasn't too bad but they will try to take every single penny from your security deposit. They charged me over $100 for cleaning, which includes ridiculous fees such as bathroom mirror streaks. Another advice,… See More

Everything, the cabinets, sink area, closet doors, room doors are basically warped plywood from several decades ago under countless layers of cheap off-white paint.. Tiny hallway-like "kitchen" that does not have a double sink, or sink hose, or… See More
