Gundam90

Resident 2013 - 2015

1/6/2015

I live in The Villas at Bon Vista, not the Apartments. I cannot say this is true for the apartments. I moved from Buffalo, NY after college for work as a young professional. This is the only place I've lived in Morgantown, and I've lived here for 2 years. I looked at about 5 other places when moving here, and they were either super shady, old, in the middle of nowhere, or low-quality college cookie cutters. The Villas seemed relatively new, and upon move-in my carpet was brand new. The place wasn't in disrepair, though there were signs it had been lived in (the occasional scuff, some minor peels in wallpaper in the bathroom, nothing big). The sliding glass door and window were not the best at insulating, but I've had MUCH worse. The place isn't too noisy, as there aren't dogs, nor many (if any) kids running around. You do get some college kids throwing parties weeknights, but I could really only hear the people above me and below me (I could hear the girl above me stomping around and being intimate, and the guy below me playing Rick Ross until 3 am), and it was never bad enough to call the front desk or the cops. I couldn't hear the people through my side walls, so those were pretty thick. The place is safe enough, there aren't really people creeping around. The place is decently lit (get blackout curtains for your room), and Robin and a few other employees will cruise around the area to keep an eye on things. The most dangerous part of the area is the horrible streets that Morgantown has, but you can't escape those anywhere. The Villas are close to the Suncrest center, and not far from the stadium, town, and highways. Maintenance was quick enough with every problem I had, but I didn't have many besides hornets on my deck. The staff is excellent. Lacy was always very polite, and very helpful when showing me the apartment. Robin is amazing. She comes off as mean, but she's doing her job as a strict super. If you follow the rules, you won't have problems. If you need anything (like getting a crazy Ex-girlfriend out of your house when she broke in) she will help you (even calling a cop and locksmith out at 10 pm on a Sunday night). If you try to sneak a dog into your apartment or non-residents try to sneak into the pool, however, she will destroy you. All in all, I hate Morgantown, but the Villas are pretty okay, better than most places I've lived in buffalo. It's a weird blend of college kids, young professionals, and a few families, but it's nice enough. There's also a pool and open garages, which is nice. TL;DR - The Villas are 4 out of 5. Don't break the rules, and it's fine.
