WARNING DO NOT RENT HERE! THE MANAGEMENT LIES ABOUT UTILITY BILL AND REFUSUES TO SHOW ANY TENANT THE BILL AND THEREFORE CHARGES AS THEY PLEASE. WATER BILS FOR TENANTS LIVING IN THE EXACT SAME SIZE APARTMENTS CAN RANGE FROM 30.00 IF THEY LIKE YOU TO 100.00 IF THEY DONT.THEY CLAIM THE UTILITY COMPANY IS RAISING PRICES BY THIS OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT AND ALL LIES. THEY ARE CHARGING FOR A POOL BY RAISING RENT FEES AND IT HAS NOT EVEN BEEN BUILT YET . APARTMENTS ARE MOLDY AND MAINTENACE HAS NOT GONE TO FIX IT FOR WEEKS. HOLES IN OTHER APARTMENTS DUE TO MAINTENANCE HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING WATER LEAKS AND AFTER MONTHS HAVE STILL NOT REPAIRED LARGE HOLE IN WALL. THE MANAGEMENT REALLY DOES SUCK AND ALL LIARS! 60 DAY NOTICE TO VACATE IS ALSO REQUESTED FOR YOU TO GET OUT OF YOUR LEASE. SPRINKLER SYSTEM WATERS EVERY DAY AND WATERS THE STREET MORE THAN IT DOES THE GRASS AND ALL ON THE TENANTS DIME. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF RENTING! SPEAK TO ANY CURRENT TENANT AND THEY ARE ALL ANXIOUSLY AWAITING TO MOVE OUT! THIS IS COMING FROM A RESPONSIBLE TENANT WHO HAS NOT ONCE BEEN LATE ON THE RENT BUT HAS HEARD STORIES OF HOW THEY WILL SEND AN ATTORNEY'S LETTER IF YOU ARE A DAY PAST THE 3RD OF THE MONTH AND THEY CHARGED HER ALL KINDS OF ATTORNEY'S FEES AND NOTICE FEES AND LATE FEES (OVER 150.00)FOR 1 DAY OF BEING LATE. HAVE HEARD BY OTHER TENANTS THEY THREATENED TO EVICT A FAMILY BECAUSE HER SON HAD SCUFFLED WITH ANOTHER LITTLE BOY ON THE PLAYGROUND.PLAIN AND SIMPLE, BLACK AND WHITE, DO NOT RENT HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT.

I HAD TO GO PURCHASE HEAVY PLASTIC AND STAPLE GUN IT IN FRONT OF THE DOOR TO AVOID GETTING ALL MY BELONGINGS WET.CAN YOU BELIEVE MAINTENANCE COULDN'T EVEN COME DO THIS FOR A TENANT? DO YOU REALLY WANT TO COME HOME TO THIS? DO NOT RENT HERE! AGAIN, NEW OWNERS (SUPPOSEDLY)SAME MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE AND ALTHOUGH YOU CAN PUT LIPSTICK ON A PIG,..

Alot of apartment rentals change their name,I believe they do this to avoid bankruptcy. Perhaps, they will change the management, but keep the same ole' rules. Check their website and speak to someone who lives there, chat in the parking lot, if need be. Remember,, bedbugs are still a problem in a few apartment complexes still, so do your homework.
Dissatisfied

I agree that nobody should rent from these apartments! I currently live in them, and am 100% dissatisfied with it here! The office staff does not communicate issues among each other, so I have spoken to three different people and have had to explain the long story to each of them! They clearly are not keeping any record of issues in their system, which is ridiculous! The one positive thing I do have to say about this place is that the maintenance staff is on top of things! We have had a few things break here and there, and they always come fix it the day we call it in! They are excellent! Every other aspect of living here sucks though! ESPECIALLY the office staff! I can't even describe the hell they have put us through for no reason! I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau!

Leaving soon and can't wait. Water bill is a rip off and no explanation for the ever increasing bill. Last management was much better. At least they cared. They don't enforce their own rules here. Any breed of dog is allowed as their is a bull dog here. I agree we water the street instead of the grass. I have gotten other people's mail at least 4 times. I have seen tenants do all kinds of things that are against the rules of the lease and nothing is done. I would not recommend these apts. to anyone.

As is usually the case, the model looked nothing like the actually apartment I was rented. However, in this case, the discrepancies were more than minor. Carpeting was old with cigarette burns, old broken appliances (other then the new washer and dryer), old radiator style heating systems. The grounds could possibly be nice except for the fact that they are constantly covered in dog poop. Even if the grounds were kept clean there are fights breaking out in the parking lots, gun shots occasionally, and multiple people had their car tires slashed while I was living there. My garbage disposal never worked properly, food stayed in it and rotted no matter how long I ran it. The entire house would smell unless I thoroughly cleaned it out after each use. I informed the maintenance staff. A member of the crew ran ice cubes through it and told me that they probably would not be replacing it. He informed that I should just keep running ice cubes through it from time to time.... Until the day I moved out I continued to have to clean out the garbage disposal after each use... All of this is really nothing compared to the fact that the office staff makes promises they never intend to keep. I prefer that no one enter my home without my being present. I asked at the time I signed my lease if this would be a problem as was informed it would never be a problem. It became a nightmare. When I did set up times for maintenance to come I would sit for hours waiting. Then I was accused of ignoring knocks on my door. I was patronized and treated incredibly disrespectfully. When I became upset the office staff blew me off. NEVER EVER EVER rent here. EVER. These people have only their own interest in mind. They have forgotten that their job is managing people's HOMES not just random buildings. And who do they think they are kidding with these prices. Don't let the "internet cafe" and "gym" draw you in... look before you leap!

this is the worst apt I have ever lived in. I should have known when I first moved in and the apt was so dirty and gross, carpet smelled bad and there was hair everywhere, sinks were clogged. I threw up twice just puling the hair out of the bathtub and sink. the staff is at first seemed to care and had my carpet shampooed but my ac has been broken for two months and they still cant give me an answer, when I call they say they will call me back and they never do. worst place ever. I should have stayed at ridgeview which is right next door at least they got things done.

You so do not know what your talking about..

The name change comes about when the apartment owner sells and the new owners have the choice of changing the name.

Bedbugs are brought in my the people who rent the apt usually in the beds and belongings. Once the apt staff find out there's a problem its taken care of.. So you can
not blame that one on the apartments.. Bed bugs can be found in any apartment complex, hotels, motels.. etc.. You bring them in, they have to deal with it.. You can buy a new bed and bring it home, to find out there's bed bugs..

Do your homework before opening your mouth

Am I the only person who loved living there? Lol! I lived in the apartments for four years, even moved away to Florida, then came back and moved into a different unit because I loved it so much. Johnny the maintenance guy is awesome, he is very dependable and trustworthy. Yes, I agree the apartments are expensive (which is the only reason I moved) but if I could afford it I'd still live there. I moved a month ago and miss it terribly. The grounds are always kept so nice, and I love the fact that it's nestled against Palmer Park. The management have always been so friendly and always called me back in a timely manner to address any issues I had. I mean, it wasn't perfect, as nothing is. My drains clogged, my garbage disposal stunk, but my daughter and I lose hair like crazy in the shower and I put food down the garbage disposal all the time (which I later learned from my Plumber friend that's not a good idea). The only real complaint I have is that my downstairs neighbors cooked ALL DAY LONG, and used pungent seasoning, it would get on my clothes and bedding, I'd walk around smelling like ramen all day! Lol! I don't miss that. Anyway, keep in mind when reading these reviews that there are people who focus on the negative and there are people who focus on the positive... Chances are the people who complain about these apartments also complain about their job, their spouse, their kids, their car and probably even this beautiful state we live in.

The best place ever, better than staying at the broadmoor but a lot cheaper.
