Moved here because one of the few places that accepted my large dog, have not liked it one bit. The office people doing our lease seemed very friendly after we were "in" the whole attitude changed. They charge us for to dogs pet rent even though we got rid of the one and we even told them we no longer have one and its still charged. I don't even like going in the office. From the very beginning of moving in power would go off sometimes for hours, they would fix it, and then the next day the same thing. Have not had reliable power for the whole year I've been here. If that doesn't scream look elsewhere then maybe the fact that there's always people outside the apartments, by the parking lot or just walking in the road for fun. Kids with no parents in sight play in the roads with no caution for vehicles and did i mention they play very loud and usually right by your window. Ceiling leaks in multiple rooms, leaky faucets, just bad everything but hey you get what you pay for. Cops are always in this complex either for deals going down or other misconduct. I was taking my dog out right outside my apartment and two kids run by and hide in the bushes, next thing i know a cop car comes by with his lights on looking for something or someone. Not to mention after working retail on black Friday i slept most the day and go outside to find my back window smashed. Nothing taken just random act of vandalism. I reported it to my car insurance company and they said they have had a lot of vandalism in that area. This is the definition of a cheap apartment complex. You might get lucky and love your neighbors and have absolutely no problems but the gamble is all yours if i could choose again i'd find anywhere else. I even got rid of my big dog just so i can move more easily. But he is more happy where he is at.
i agree with everything the guy before me put, if i could give negative stars it'd have a lot, nothing has changed in many years and that just shows no one cares here which is very unfortunate. My main complaint would be management the lady i signed with was either fired or quit and they got all new staff and they still suck! VERY RUDE PEOPLE, obviously hate their lives and "JOB" (if you'd call it that) and take it out on the residents. Please im looking out for you do not move here, you will regret it.
This is not a good place to live. There is a serious cockroach problem, the staff isn't very helpful, the crime rate there is horrible. When I lived there a man died in the building next to me.. It looks okay from the front but the farther back you go into the complex the worse it looks.. Most importantly, though, it's just not a safe place to live.
