Ok Well you wanna live in meadow woods eh? Oh its spacious Oh so much to offer No Let me tell you all something... Ive lived in meadow woods for 7 ------- Years Ever Since I was 9... And boy did this -------- make my life miserable.. First off the ------- roaches. Everywhere, at the computer, in the fridge, in the sink, baby roaches ------- each other ----!!!!!!! Literally HAVING SEX, On the counter. I will never forget the day my mom bought Raid, and that one night I killed 47 roaches. 40 ------- SEVEN! And this continuted every night. Numbers ranging from 10-20 roaches a night. Second, Neighbors... Spanish guy upstairs blasting his music. Neighbors downstairs always complaining about noise. To the left a dipshit blasting his music. and to the right these gangsters who always stand in the middle of the ------- stairway when your trying to get out..

    Try not to panic, what's wrong with roaches anyway

    Okay, so people have mentioned the roaches, and, yep, we had them. But it wasn't horrific. They persisted for a few months, but heavy usage of traps and some management-led bombings allowed us to get rid of them. And honestly, maybe this says a lot about me, but the odd floor roach is really only an annoyance to me. If they were in my pantry, inside my bags of flour, inside the fridge, running around on my counter while i try to chop vegetables, etc, then I would probably be alarmed, but this has yet to happen. Okay, what else? Our maintenance requests were promptly obeyed. We did have to move stuff around inside or apt on 24- or 48 hour notice fairly frequently, maybe six times a year or so, which is annoying. I found the office staff to be nice and accomodating. Our apartment seems fairly roomy to us for a 1BR. Although the bathroom is fairly small and the tub is too dirty to use. We like the heat/AC although it could have more vents. The neighbors are fine. A lot of snobbish white dipshits are rather quick to fear and mistrust minorities who don't wear tuxedos, but I've never… See More>

      Third-World Conditions for First-World Rent

      In the Marines or the Peace Corps? A missionary in the service of God mired in heathen lands? Anthropologically curious? Well, Meadow Woods is the place for you if your aim is to live in third world conditions. Scotts Management hikes the rent on an annual basis, last year by $30 for me and the year previous by $25. For $950/mo - not including utilities -, a 700 sq ft. apartment replete with roaches big and small and colonies of bed bugs is available for the budding entomologist. As for the human life forms in the neighborhood, there are degenerates of every description. 2 or 3 families crammed into one apartment, loud obnoxious youths who are destined to serve time in some state's penitentiary, neighborhood winos, and burgeoning gangsters sporting the latest in street gear and attitude - this is a veritable smorgasboard of human degeneracy. Dante must have resided in the Meadow Woods of his world while creating his Inferno. I wish I had never signed that lease...

        A Very Nice Community

        I've lived in Meadow Woods for four years now and am very happy with the community. It is located very close to any kind of shopping and restaurants you could want.There is great transportation and connectors to the metro. It's easy to get to D.C. and Maryland from here. It is also very close to downtown Alexandria and Fort Belvoir. The grounds are very well kept. The landscaping is lovely. The grounds people take good care of the buildings and the community itself. The office staff is friendly and very willing to help. The maintenance staff go out of their way to make sure any problem is resolved in a timely manner. They are pleasant and polite. I have a two bedroom that is large and roomy. I have an older style apartment but I have seen the new renovations being done in the newer apartments and they are truly nice. I've met many residents who have lived here for many years. Some have been here 15 years or more. I have met very nice people and enjoy my neighbors. All in all, I've been happy here and will continue to make this my home.

          awful and unsafe

          We moved here in February due to a last minute decision. When we checked the place out it was like someone else said a Saturday and nobody was out and about. Also aside from the new appliances our apartment isn't much like the model they showed us near the rental office. Even with the so called new windows and sliding glass door that are supposed to keep outside noise to a minimum I am constantly being awakened to people outside at all hours of the night. Our front door has never shut properly and shows signs of being kicked in at some earlier date. Two of the closet doors wouldn't shut all the way so we called maitenance and several days later they came and scraped and sawed off the paint that has been applied and reapplied over the years, no one ever came back to repaint them since. We have called three times because our air conditioning doesn't cool the apartment off even with it being set at 68 all day and night, each time they say they have fixed it. We were given a few days notice that we would have to empty out all of the cabinets… See More>

            OMG the roaches

            I moved out of the roach motel in 2007. I still have a few neighbors that live here that I visit from time to time, and nothing has changed. I was placed on the extermination schedule EVERY Thursday. I should have used my own water to spray to avoid taking out my food and etc. from my cabinets. Now I have to admit that the ENTIRE maintenance staff was always couteous, caring and willing to attend to any maintenace request as long as it was approved by the property manager(which is almost an impossible task until you make a call to the corporate office). On one occasion I went to the office to pay my rent and lo and behold the property manager was screaming at one of the leasing consultants because of a phone conversation she had with a potential renter. Had it been me on the other end of the phone I would have shown interest because of how proffessional she was(Im still baffled over that 1). My apartment was not completly ready when I moved in but I was desparate. I did not have any safety issues in the area. And my children made friends with no… See More>

              During my move in ----- was very professional in assisting me. The apartment was ready and clean as promised. A few maintenance items needed done after I moved in and were taken care of right away. The buildings and grounds are also very beautiful. I moved in in March '09.

                Pool Party

                They had a very nice pool party last Saturday - lot's of fun, especially for kids. I've rented at other places (and with a pool too) - but have not experienced such a well organized event. I believe their whole staff was there, at least I saw some of their maintenance men and office ladies. The waterslide was a huge hit with the kids. Whoever came up with that idea on such a hot day, deserves a THANK YOU! The food ran out a little early - maybe because too many people showed up?

                  can't believe the reviews

                  I moved here in February, dispite all the nay sayers. Man, that was a good decission. when my friends come to visit me, they are amazed by my kitchen and how large my apartment is. Also, I checked out some of the other apartments around here and this was the best looking apartment. Great choice.

                    DO NOT LIVE IN THIS HELL HOLE!!!!!!!

                    DO NOT LIVE HERE!!!!! Meadow Woods is honestly the worst place to live, noone in the management office gives a ---- about any of the tenants, they ignore you until you call their corporate office, Scott Management. They do have a serious roach problem, the only reason, I haven't had any roaches, is because I live on the top level and I keep my apartment spotless (with bleach). There are electric sockets that do not work, my A/C hasn't worked since last July. If you are not home by 6PM, you will not find a park. Along with the person above, I had problems with the gas, why? Because some idiot in the management office put my social security number under a different apartment, it took me weeks to fix the screwup that they did. Please do not move here, it will be the biggest mistake of your life.

                      You pay for what you get.

                      When i first moved here. They were the cheapest in the area, if u dont count the ------ roach infested places. Ive been here 2 yrs they went from chargin 1076 to 1172 on top of all that the electricity is up 12%. When u first move in they tell u its up to u if u wanna pay for gas or not cause all that is thru the gas company. Bullsh**!!!!! They gave my social security number to washington gas, and the bills started comin. but since the usage meter said 0 they wanna charge me bunch of admin fees. long story short i made them charge the rental office for this little mistake.(cost them almost $300). If u maintain a clean apartment u wont have to worry about roaches. havent seen one since i did my own exterminating when i first moved my stuff in. Maintance like every where else u gotta stay on top of them or it wont get fixed till 3 days later. My kitchen light went out on friday evening, the emergency maintance person told me "thats not an emergency". I couldnt see what i was doing… See More>

                        Uncooperative Staff- Do NOT move in!

                        I currently live here and we have a huge problem with roaches. The apartment has several cracks that I have asked management to fix and nothing has been done. I travel most of the time and hardly cook at home and roaches still come out. They come from the AC unit, the open shower pipe door that is located in your closet, and beneath the main door. Every 3 to 6 months they make you take all of your dishes and food out of the kitchen cabinets so they can exterminate but it does not work and then you have to replace everythin back. It is a pain! I have not been able to confortably settle in without maintenance coming into my apartment. They can not sign enough people to live there so they offer current residents up to $200 dollars to refer someone. They are so desperate! I always pay my rent 2 wks ahead of the due date because I travel a whole lot and one month I had to be out for family emergeny and forgot to pay for rent on time. I went to pay for rent on the 5th and the accountant said they needed… See More>

                            Comfortable and reasonably priced

                            I have lived in the Meadow Woods complex since August. My apartment had been renovated before I moved in, and I am very satisfied with it. The office staff are attentive and friendly, and the management has so far kept on top of things like spraying for bugs and replacing air vent filters. I have not seen a single roach. I had trouble with my stove when I first moved in, and the repair request was filled very quickly. Parking is very convenient to my location, though some places require more walking. I also feel safe living there by myself. The "cons" to my experience there are the old laundry machines that sometimes break, and the occassional TV noise floating in from next door. The price for my one bedroom apartment is affordable, and the utility costs are reasonable.

                              My wife and I are so happy to be leaving from this hellhole!!! The roaches should pay rent, that s how many there are. For a place that knows it has roaches you would think they would do regular spraying and not wait for people to call and make an appointment!! The next thing was the woman who lived down stairs (Crazy woman from Ghana) who assaulted my wife and tried to assault me, and she would bang on the ceiling all night long, did Meadow Woods do any thing. NO, do not move here, go somewhere else. Only good thing is Drema, nice lady.

My place is one of the first ones that got renovated and it has the big open kitchen with ceramic tile and black appliances. Anytime my neighbor stops in she gets so mad because she wants her apartment to be the same as mine. I think she is even putting in for a transfer and is okay about paying the additional money to get a brand new apartment. There are alot of negative things posted but I honestly love it here. Maintenance is very efficient and the office staff especially (Dreama) are super nice. The location is sooooo very convenient to everything. If I had one thing to complain about it would be the playground. Although they have two of them I would like it to be a little closer so I can look out and watch my daughter. So for now I am going to stay put since I've searched the area and there is nothing around as nice for a good price like I have… See More>

                                            My Apartment Is Great!

                                            I moved in about 6 months ago and actually love my apartment. I saw a few roaches when I first moved in but management did an intensive treatment and it cured it. They have also done alot of work in the community. I've noticed a substantial difference in my Electric bill since they put in the new windows. I'm in a one bedroom apartment and it is huge. I think it's a worth the money because when I shopped around before getting here this was the best value against square footage. Maintenance could be a little faster but they do come withing 48 hours and always do a good job. One time they even left me a great note on my counter with a candy sak that said service got sweeter. It was really nice and appreciated. They also gave me a corsage for mothers day which was really nice and when I told the office that I am not a mother they said to take it anyway. To anyone reading this site don't always believe they negative sometimes people write things wrong when they are getting harrased about paying there rent.… See More>

                                              Trouble even getting in!

                                              I am due to move into this place this month. I picked it because a friend lived here, and she didn't seem to have that bad of a place. At first I was thinking that I was going to ignore the ratings, as most of them are old (and to be honest, the pictures posted do not even LOOK like Meadow Woods). But my problem is with the management. They are not willing to let you see a floor model of the apartment you're moving into. They claim they have none. My boyfriend is furious, because he says he's leasing something he hasn't seen. Every time I call, the person I want to speak to is never there, and at times the leasing specialists are RUDE! I got one that was really helpful, but the other day I called to ask once again when we'd be able to get our keys (day of!!!), and the snotty girl I talked to said, "umph, we ALWAYS change our locks". I didn't ask you that. I asked you when our apartment would be completed, so we could at least look at it before moving in. They're coming across as very dishonest. I called the regional… See More>

                                                ROACHES & POOR MANAGEMENT

                                                The roaches are un-fn-believable. I called every week for extermination and they came. Well they must've sprayed water because the bugs never left. I overheard a female manager actually yelling at the leasing consultants. When I visit the office the girls are very nice and very proffessional. I really hope they take their experience and apply it to a company that deserves them andd not stay at this ---- hole of a job. They did not deserve to be talked to in that manner. I was once behind on my rent and their collector was the rudiest ----- I have ever dealt with. I was behind 1 month not 3 and had the funds to pay it the very next day. She stated to me that apparently I could not afford to live there and she would do what she could to get me out. They are CONSTANTLY out of supplies that are vital to the complex. Stay away and go to the neighboring apartments.

                                                  Stay Far Away

                                                  I could not even make it a year at this place they call an apartment. When we first moved in all seemed well then the roaches started to become a regular house guest, people smoking dope and drinking everywhere, constantly breaking windows and other stuff. The management team are a bunch of idiots. While I lived there they went through 3 or 4 book keepers. Seemed like every month I was being charged more and more money and none of them could tell me why. When I moved out they said we didnt give proper notice and its been 7 months and still havent gotten my right refund check from them. They love to rob you blind and make this place seem a lot better then it is. If you want to enjoy where you live and not worry about your safety and well being stay far away from this hell hole.
