08/27/2014 I am only commenting here out of fairness. When I first considered Quail Run, I almost did not rent due to negatives reviews. Now that I've lived here for a few months I feel it's time to state my experience.
First, when considering any place to live, location is critical. This apartment complex is the most conveniently located I've ever lived in. Within a mile there is I-77, Walmart, Trader Joe's, Sam's, Starbucks, Hobby Lobby, Talbot's, the post office, a library, police and fire stations and much more. Downtown and USC, several malls, and other interstates are all within 10 minutes.
This is a beautiful property with pretty landscaping, a large pond with a fountain, and even a gazebo, and it has the largest and deepest pool I've ever seen. The majority of the residents are military personnel from next door Ft, Jackson. Everyone I've met has been friendly and I feel safe and secure. The apartments are very nice and large. My 2 bedroom has almost 1300 sf. I have built-in w/d connections and a 22 X 7 screened-in back porch I really love. I especially appreciate that each apartment has front door mail service and a trash roll cart. In the past, I always detested hauling my trash to the dumpster and walking 300 feet to retrieve my mail. I'll also mention my apartment is bug free and very clean.
For me, it was the incredibly low monthly rent that attracted me. I know other complexes in this area are much higher. The low down payment, along with the first month rent free are what sold me on moving here. But what has given me such satisfaction is the leasing and maintenance staff. They've all been great and professional.
My understanding is a new owner took over the property a few months ago and the leasing staff is all brand new. Apparently the past staff and owners were uncaring and unprofessional. I can only comment on my own experiences and can say the staff has been courteous, timely, and very friendly. Based on my experience so far, I highly recommend Quail Run Apartments to anyone, especially if you are looking for a great bargain.
