Easy move in. Apartment was tidy, but still needed cleaning. The black trim had scuff marks throughout the apartment and there was several other small dents, cracks, and mark ups found and documented. The elevator I use, has a new dog pee stain every couple… See More >

    People bringing in alcohol to the pool area. Dog crap on walkways, sidewalks, in hallway, and elevator. Trash not picked up even though we pay for trash service. Management not knowing how to correct online portal payments. Mistakes with lease renewals.

            It's good, nice place, needs a shuffleboard table in lobby think it would get as much or more use than the pool table. Felt on the pool table is tore. looks bad!!! rent is a bit high for hillside apartments.

              Overall my experience here hasn't been bad but could have been better. Upkeep of communal facilities need addressed in a more timely fashion and overall cleanliness due to the amount of dogs in the building.
