I had an overall great experience with my apartment in Wassmer studios. The appliances were all new and worked well with no problems. The apartment was clean and the location was nice (15-20 minutes walking to campus/downtown, beautiful neighborhood). I did have some maintenance issues come up and found that I needed to call the office in addition to filling out their online maintenance form, but I received service within a day or two of calling. The landlord himself is very matter of fact during conversations (I've seen some reviews saying that he's been rude but I've taken it as him wanting to cut through B.S. and just get requests taken care of), but was helpful for me when I needed to cancel a third year's lease and did not give me any difficulty about getting back my deposit. This is not the cheapest apartment in lexington, but it is low hassle and a good location. Very worth it.
I am currently living at Royal Lexington Apartments. It is the worse apartments to live in. When I moved in the appliances were old and dirty. And I guess because I moved in w/ random people who were currently living in the apartments (renewed their leases) it was so dirty in the kitchen, the walls, and the bathroom. I would never recommend any of my friends to live here. Its loud at night and the place is just terrible. The rooms are super small and the air condition only cools down the living room and kitchen. So its hot all summer in the rooms no matter how high you have the air. And I wouldnt dare touch that pool. The only good things about this apartment complex is the new management and staff are friendly, the gym area is pretty nice, and it is close to campus.
It was a really fun experience and I loved the apartments. I lived at Red Mile Village for several years while I was in school and it was great. If there was ever a problem in my apartment (which was rare), maintenance came immediately to fix it. They were also always really nice and respectful when they came in my apartment. The staff were all really nice too. They held events that were really fun and inviting and I met a lot of good people there. I loved RMV and I'd recommend it to anyone.
I had a good experience living in Wassmer Studios this past year. The apartment has a good amount of space and nice kitchen. The location is close to anywhere you need to be if you go to UK. The electric bill can run a bit high in the winter, but isn't too terrible as other utilities are covered. Overall I would recommend Wassmer studios for its fair price and convenience.
The proximity to campus and downtown, included internet, or the large floor space, are all perks of the property of Wassamer Square, located on Transylvania park. The building is very secure and safe, even has coded access to the laundry room.
