Horrible place

This place is trash! DO NOT MOVE HERE! They do not care about their residents. They are just about $$$$$$$$$$$$. Lots of excessive fees for services you do not need or ask for. Cars are vandalized on a monthly basis,

          The safety at this building has decreased significantly. I have complained to management about the attempted theft on my brand new motorcycle which resulted in almost $8k in damages. Now we are having senseless beatings here where blood is all in the hallway. There is… See More>

                          Very easy move, using internet & considering COVID. All staff so far have been quick to help. Convenient location, being between highways, shops and nice neighborhoods. The complex offered me a nice rate and plenty of useful amenities. It was an easy choice.

We always strive to provide top quality service to every resident and guest; so we appreciate your time is providing us your feedback. As it turns out, the garage parking in our community is a convenient feature that our residents have the option to use for that monthly rate of $50 for unreserved and $75 for reserved parking. I can understand that the charges can seem more costly with 2 or more vehicles, and am sorry to hear that this is something you're experiencing. Please feel free to visit the leasing office if you have any other questions or concerns we can assist with. Thank you for calling Beacon of Groveton home and have a great day! Kind regards, Raquel Centeno Assistant General Manager
