Worst place to live in Lakeland! The apartments look nothing like the pictures or the show model. When we moved in the toilet flood the entire apartment and the refrigerator was full of rotten food. They didn't even bother to sweep up the place. We had to fight to get the bathrooms remodeled (and call in code enforcement to cite them) because the fixtures were busted and instead of cleaning the tub, they just painted over it causing the mold to constantly bleed through. They use paint to fix EVERYTHING! Dirty wall, part over it! Mold and mildew, paint it. Broken cabinet door, paint it (the cabinet door finally gave and broke my toe while I was brushing my teeth). We went 2 weeks without AC and got a window unit to hold us over until they could get around to fixing it. The flooring is not properly fixed to the floor, so you end up stepping on carpet tack strips and tripping over peeling vinyl flooring. Maintenance is a joke and the office staff are rude and unhelpful. We have battled bed bugs twice (we were told to just not use the electrical outlets and to tape them up to prevent future infestation) and now we have rats! To make matters worse, the kitchen cabinets are not rotting! We are trying to move out, but the staff is bad mouthing us to other landlords and is now demanding a rent increase! Run as fast as you can from this property!

Moving to Fountain Square Apartments was a terrible decision. The complex was sold in May of 2007 and quickly became a DUMP.
Our two pools have things living in them (large tadpoles)...we're thinking we'll be able to use them for fishing out of in about a month. They are a beautiful dark green/black (ZERO visibility), and have been for over two months - the PCHealthD actually shut them down. Nothing is being done to remediate the problem. No pool company. No pool maintenance at all.
We also have new exterior decorations. I guess instead of fixing the Central Heat/Air Unit, Fountain Square has decided to give residents Air Conditioning Window Units. There?s about 10 (out of 120) apartments with these new window fixtures.
We have not received a reduction in our rent rates; we haven't received much of anything. The LAST thing anyone wants to do is live here.
