I like living at Redtail on the River and think it is a good place for a student transitioning into having more responsibilities ( moving, bills, etc). The staff is all very welcoming and friendly. However, after a year of living here I've had multiple appliances… See More

Garnet Riverwalk is a typical corporate apartment complex where everything is cheaply made and where they will do ANYTHING to squeeze a little more money out of you. Their only goal in mind is MONEY, MONEY AND MORE MONEY. Want to have a pet? Non-refundable $300… See More

If you are interested in GRR at all, reconsider. The only reason I ended up there was because my friend/roommate at the time knew someone that lived in there and needed a few more roommates. All these bad reviews are true. They WILL charge you for… See More

Worst possible place to live. The staff is not nice or helpful. Since day 1 there was always some kind of problem. I was never given my deposit back and charged for things that were not true. The parking also sucks. Do yourself a favor and… See More

There is a stigma that bad reviews for apartments are written by people who are angry because of problems they brought upon themselves (i.e. late rent, loud parties). I agree that this is true for over 50% of the bad reviews you read. However, let me… See More

I genuinely would discourage anyone from signing a lease with this apartment complex. It may seem very appealing as they tend to offer "price guarantees" or "signing bonuses", etc. They even offer 50$ referrals come the new leasing period; however, upon collection for my referrals I… See More
