River Walk Apartments
Resident · 2011 - 2012
Overall, I would rate the apartments pretty well, but I do think there are a few things potential renters should know so I want to give an honest review. I lived at Riverwalk for over a year. The apartment was spacious, the maintenance was carried out in a timely manner, and I always felt safe there. However, despite being advertised as professionally decorated, the apartment decor is extremely outdated with badly chosen wallpaper and some pretty awful carpet options. If they're going to advertise that, they may want to get someone who is an actual professional to choose the decor. In addition, the office didn't seem particuarly focused on making their residents happy when it came to noise violations. The residents upstairs had a dog that barked CONSTANTLY and nothing was done after I complained. I spoke to other residents in the building when out walking my own dog one day and they seemed equally frustrated. Furthermore, many of the residents would simply leave their dogs' feces laying around on the sidewalk but nothing was done to penalize them for that either, even though it was obvious whose dogs were leaving the little presents behind. Finally, when I fulfilled my lease and moved out of the area I made sure I cleaned everything and did the walk-through with some woman I'd never seen before. She told me everything looked great and the carpet cleaning (which was standard) would be "about $50." I received my deposit back (with the part of my pet deposit I was entitled to) and they'd deducted $170 for carpet cleaning. That's a far cry from $50. When I called to ask why the carpet cleaning fee wasn't taken out of the nonrefundable part of the pet deposit I was told that the nonrefundable part doesn't go toward those things, so they use your rental deposit instead. Am I missing something? At any rate, it was a decent place to live overall, but they definitely try to squeeze every penny they can out of you when you leave.
