Resident · 2010 - 2012
To this day I have yet to find an apartment in the Tri-Cities area that has the same amount of space that Lakeside offers for the price they charge. You get a lot of "bang for your buck" and I've never had any trouble with the office staff or the maintenance crew though I have heard of people who have. It's also in a really convenient location and the neighborhood is generally on the good side with a few bad moments on occasion. Basically, if you pay your rent on time, are a good neighbor, and aren't a complete idiot when it comes to the terms of your lease, you'll really enjoy your time here. That being said, there are two BIG THINGS you should consider before you move here. #1- It's an older building and it is in need of some major upgrades. However, these upgrades will not be performed until something breaks/falls apart. While this makes sense from a cost standpoint, it is frustrating and annoying and at times can be dangerous (I recently have been having trouble with my electricity, not fun in the winter). And #2- If you live on the ground floor, you will hear EVERYTHING your upstairs neighbor says and does. I've never had problems with my side neighbors but my upstairs neighbor likes to listen to LOUD music/TV and I hear every single minute of it. Not fun. We've worked out an agreement but it still gets on my nerves a couple times a month. I know this is partially a pet peeve, but it is something a new tenant should be aware of. Overall though my experience has been pleasant. I'm only moving because I have outgrown the 1 bed/1 bath arrangement. I would also like to live closer to work and after two years in an older apartment, I've become tired of the "quirks." :) Still, if things change in my life and I need to move back, I wouldn't think twice about renting at Lakeside again, I would just request an upstairs apartment instead.
