Yeah, its got a good location and its slightly cheaper but there's a reason for the cheapness! The front desk staff, particularly the sales staff, are the rudest, most unprofessional of any apartment complex I've ever lived. This place hires very cheap labor to fix up apartments so they look nice when you move in, but the materials used (i.e., paint, rugs, tile, etc.) are cheap also. So, normal wear and tear on these things is tripled and the sales staff blames it on you and makes you pay for it when you want to move out. Also, the air quality in the apartment is terrible! Just wait until you see the large gathering of thick, black, goopy dust on your ceiling fan, any regular fan in your place, and encircling your furniture on the floor, a stain on the carpet caused by their dirty ac units but they'll blame you and tell you that its your responsibility to clean the carpets before you move out. My carpet started bubbling up in the center of the apartment caused by a leak in the ac unit, there were ripples throughout the apartment in the carpet. I'm just waiting for them to blame me for that too!<br><br>Don't do it! Remember the old adage, you get what you pay for! This place is cheap at first but they will get you in the end!!<br><br>Oh, and when the lease is up, if you want to stay but don't want to sign a new lease, they make you go 2 month to 2 month, a Mark Winkler policy, which is different than Landlord and Tenant Law of month to month. And don't expect to prorate rent for the last month! They make you pay to the very last day, even if you have to move before then.
