Keep looking

I’ve been living in Lakewood apartments for about 2 months now & so far it has not been a pleasant stay. The main issue is the roaches. They are everywhere. Pest control comes every week but it doesn’t do anything, I’m almost certain they just spray water. Secondly, the apartments are located about 100 feet from the highway and it gets very loud. I can’t believe I got duped into signing a 12 month lease here. Don’t make the same mistake I did.

    Maintenance is stellar. They literally come within like an hour. Rarely do I ever need to call for maintenance to begin with. Office staff is great also. Very eager to help and manager takes care of things very fast. There was a tree that fell on the fence during a storm and the very next morning they were out chopping that tree up getting it fixed. Overall, excellent experience living here!! Lots of fun events too! Bedrooms are huge also!

        Horrible experience, they overcharged for painting, they sent the final bill 50 days later and just because they called to notify a second time that they did not receive it, they charged for walking on the carpet. And on one occasion, for no reason, they took away a credit of $ 100 that this was a payment of $ 5 dollars that I made by mistake for a long time until I had a credit of $ 111 dollars, they returned the money to me just because I realized it What they tried to do and I asked for my money back, they never gave any explanation, they only sent the account statement with the change (this was done by the manager) I had no reason to do it from that moment I started my mistrust about how transparent their charges are. These are the insane fees that blinds make $ 75 each Carpet cleaning $ 50 1B or $ 75 2B (never mind it has no stains or tears) they tried to charge me for the new carpet. paint $ 350 when there was only one wall that had to be painted (apt 1815 year 2018) they try to… See More>

          I have been looking all over and have yet to find someone as friendly and knowledgeable as Catherine here at Lakewood Apartments. The apartment I am looking at is very spacious and lovely. I hope to be approved and move in soon!

            When we came to visit, very lovely staff. The grounds crew was always making sure it was clean. Apartments were well kept. The pool was clean and as someone who enjoys to swim I found this to apartment to have the best kept facility

              I fell in love with this apartment complex the first time I saw them awhile back and now I am back with them because they have a nice apartments and clean. The manager Tina Dupree was very helpful in answering my questions and showed me around on the special features this apartment affords. Its is close to my job and dining places.

                Upon arriving we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. They have a very beautiful, nicely updated and clean, inviting office and leasing area. The grounds appear to be nicely kept and clean.

                  If it was possible to give zero stars, I would. My roommates bathroom vent started leaking and it took maintenance over a month to "fix" it. Once they did, they cut a huge hole into the ceiling and duct taped cardboard box over it for a few days. After this our AC broke and they could not be bothered to fix it for an entire three day weekend. My apartment was 98 degrees in the middle of the summer. They patched up the hole in the ceiling after this and "fixed" the AC- but it would not go below 73 at all anymore. Not long after this, the vent began to leak again and we were basically told to deal with it because they weren't going to fix it until after we moved out. In addition to this, the whole apartment complex has roaches. I know it was not just us or that we were "dirty" because I keep a pretty clean place. I know someone who lived in a separate building and had the same roach infestation. We had to spray poison ourselves just to keep the problem manageable. There were tons of other, smaller issues that aren't as… See More>

                    Office staff is friendly. I’ve lived here awhile an office staff has gotten much better compared to when I originally moved in. However, the complex can be very loud. I’ve seen reviews of saying this complex is quiet but I guess they live nowhere near building 12. It can be very loud outside throughout the day which is tolerable. Throughout the evening and night I have dealt with a neighbor whose bass literally shakes my walls and floors. Despite frequent noise complaints this neighbor is still loud, and I’ve yet to see action from the front office. Tonight, at 10:45pm the bass was still going and when I called the courtesy line I was told they have been unable to reach the courtesy officer for the last hour, and that I should dial 911. So I guess there is not a real courtesy officer here, or at least not one that is available for valid complaints. AVOID BUILDING 12!

                      I have lived here for a few years now and I love it. It is always quiet. Yes the apartments are old but they keep the complex clean. I always see them working outside, making the complex look updated. They recently added a carwash which is nice. David is always cleaning up complex. The pool is open all year and it is super clean! Office staff is friendly ( Tina is a sweetheart) . Im very happy here, nobody bothers you. My only complaint would be the big dogs, walking around the complex I almost always see one on a leash, Im assuming that they allow big dogs here that is why I see alot of them. Aside that I recommend these apartments, Affordable, quiet and clean.

                        I will say more after I move out this spring, however I have been renting in Houston since 1978 and have never been so unhappy as I am at Lakewood Apartments, I am quiet and live alone and pay my rent early every month, does not matter these people in the office act all nice until you are a resident, then they really don't care unless it's about money! The interior is very old and you do not get an ice maker or a microwave or washer and dryer, the pad in the carpet is literally flat and gone, its like walking on concrete..fighting roaches since day one and since they are 40 yrs old, pipes have busted 3 times at different times and locations in my apartment.All I can say is do yourself a favor and stay away from this old place. By the way it's no cheaper than newer places with modern updated interiors. Also, dont be alarmed when you see the graveyard right in the middle of the courtyard next to the pool and swing set!!!! And if you want to come in the complex thru a walk up gate you must pay a fee… See More>

                          I've lived it Lakewood Apartments for a year now and the management was great, always nice and helpful. If you can get past the graveyard in the center of the complex it's decent. The biggest problem comes from the maintenance guy -----. He will guilt trip you and tell you about all of his problems.

                            I lived at Lakewood since April 2013. It was an older community but I needed a two bedroom two bath at a reasonable price. It was just me and my newborn son and I felt very safe living in this apartment .I lived right next to the dumpster and when people put things out management was very quick to break down any furniture and put it in the dumpster. Maintenance was always fast when it came to work orders and office staff was friendly. Angel always helped take care of any issues if I needed them. Only reason I recently left the community is because I expanded my family and we needed a larger home. I would recommend this apartment community to anybody starting their family. Lakewood is wonderful starter apartment.

                              As per my experience I will not refer any one to stay there. This apartment community management will not care about their Tenants. You will be over charged for the any of the services. This campus is very old due to which most of the furniture and electronic items are very Old they can give you trouble anytime even its risky to your life. As per Rental the apartments are not good. It should have low rentals. Conclusion: Very poor management, Not a customer friendly, Worst inside apartment furniture and other items, Delaying the Service request, sometime in emergency they will not send any technician to do service.

                                  Our rent was due on the first. I logged in and made a payment on the 2nd, but apparently the payment did not go through (maybe there was a system error, maybe I didn't hit submit, not sure). Two days later, we received a notice a vacate (by the end of the week!), along with a $75 charge. I immediately made the payment in full and set up the account for recurring payments to avoid such an error in the future. I contacted management to explain that it was an honest error and to ask if they could waive the late fee. They said no, no exceptions. I asked for the management company information (Community Management LLC), and she also said no due to Fair Housing ("if we do it for one, we have to do it for all"). It is within their power to make exceptions for residents with good rental history and a history of making payments on-time and in full, and it has definitely affected my once-good impression of this property. I will not refer others here, and will be seeking residence elsewhere at the first opportunity.

                                    I went to check out Lakewood Apartments ,because one of there sister properties suggest them. When I got there the office was okay. Leasing Agent was giving me a tour of the property. As we came around corner I was blown away and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I asked Agent is that a cemetery? Why yes the property was built around it , because its a land mark.

                                        Just like every other apartment's management, they sweet talk you into the apartment then stop caring once you are in. I had a family member move in shortly after I did, and the apartments would call me for information about that member and demand I pay for their bills if they were late. They were not my responsibility especially since I did not co-sign on anything. I was just another resident who happen to have a relative living there. In addition, my apartment was not move in ready and the staff refused to do anything about it. Maintenance was tolerable, but needed some serious customer service training and would barge in without knocking. As a woman living alone in an apartment, I found it very inconsiderate to not knock prior to entering. One time they came in while I was in the shower. Talk about embarrassing. Management is traded out yearly too. After living there for 3 years, I was happy to have left, but even after I left I still received phone calls about my relative's bills and that kept happening a year after I had moved out. Finally I had to get a lawyer involved.

                                                I used to like it here but it seems to be getting worse and worse. The parking is horrible. They keep making parking spots reserved as in you go to work and when you get back they paint a reserved sign on the spot and expect you to pay for it. The head maintnance guy is a complete prick with a superiority complex. He goes around demanding this and demanding that and will threaten your lease if something is off your patio instead of asking for it to be fixed. The noise isn't too bad except the freeway that is RIGHT there. I have always had roach problems which I don't quite understand because I am a very clean person. The apartments themselves are pretty spacious and I don't really have a lot of issues with noise from the neighbors.

We obtained our credit scores and it was well above the cut off for denying us. We called back to tell them that there system had an error and they told us it would take an additional 2 weeks in order to get it straightened out. They will take your money and not give you an apartment. I will never rent from here or any of their "sister" properties. BEWARE WHEN APPLYING!

                                                    A: no there are no cameras on property except the ones located on the office building. the front of the coplex is well lit only by the office building. The whole back of the property has no lighting at all, the only lighting is the automatic lights on the buildings and the giant light from the highway. Its very misleading they explain how well lit and safe and secure the property is when is reality that isnt true, Just like the courtesy officer they claim to have. That doesnt exist either.
