I don't understand the outpouring of love for this place. (Well, actually I do...the management practically begs people to write good reviews.) To be honest, I wanted to love this place because it's in a great location but I just couldn't. Sure, the apartments are big but they're old and cheaply constructed. When we moved in the apartment was dirty, there was paint on everything (doors, cabinets, windowsills) and the carpet was matted and stained. One of my neighbors said they got their carpets cleaned for free but when I asked the management told me since they were just cleaned I'd have to wait. It was so gross that it would make our socks dirty! The walls and floors are paper thin; I could hear everything that my neighbors did and said. There is a carport for each apartment but additional parking was a nightmare if you got there after about 4:30 and is really far from the buildings. I don't mind walking, except that the open parking is in unlit areas of the complex and as a woman I never felt safe walking through the dark parking lot. The grounds were fairly well maintained except for all the dog droppings everywhere. My kids couldn't play on the lawn in many areas because there was so much poop everywhere and so many people let their dogs run around off leash. We had multiple issues with our air conditioning and it took days for them to fix it. There's a gym on site but it's TINY and the equipment is limited and very cheap and old. When I moved out I wasn't surprised that I didn't get all of my deposit back; I actually got charged for damages that were there when I moved in and that I had documented for them upon move in. At that point it wasn't worth the fight so they can keep it. Hopefully they put it to good use and spruce up the place. I don't have a chip on my shoulder or anything like that, I just wish that there were more honest representations of this complex on here so people can make informed decisions. It's impossible to know what a place is really like when the only reviews are coerced by management. Honestly, they pretty much pester the tenants into writing positive reviews for them. I would probably do the same thing, though. Obviously it's working in their favor. Overall, your money is better spent elsewhere.
