I have been a resident of Candlewood Apartments for almost two years and have found them to be well maintained and requests for repairs are completed promptly. My neighbors are friendly and considerate, especially those with pets.

We are always willing to fix anything in the apartment that is broken or otherwise unsatisfactory.

                Less than satisfactory. Management does nothing to help with situations. They have a pool, but it's open for maybe 3 months of the year, and you're paying as much as someone in Seattle would for an apartment.… See More >

                  I apologize that your experience at Candlewood has been less than satisfactory, we want all of our residents to love their home. Would you call me? Please help me understand what situations you have had that I was negligent in helping you - I'd like another chance to make it right. Yes, our pool is open only in the summer months due to weather conditions in Rapid City. About our rates, they are based on like-properties in Rapid City; our rates are higher than some cities and lower than others. Thank you for your comments, and again, I'd like an opportunity to resolve the situations that you mentioned.

                        Don't be fooled by the glowing reviews of this apartment complex. Extremely high rent for outdated apartments, and if you want any updates done, like a dishwasher, or new cabinets you get to pay extra on your rent. Yes the renter pays for the updates,… See More >
