Town Square Apartments

This place was absolutely horrible. I wish I could rate them a 0. I can't imagine how anyone lives here. To start off, if you're planning on moving here, don't. It will cost you WAY more money and stress than you need. We had viewed this property several times and saw 2 different apartments, both of which looked great. We went through the whole process and set up our move in date. On move in day, I go to inspect the unit we were moving in to and I can not imagine how ANYONE thought that apartment was worthy of moving into. I wouldn't even want my worst enemy living there. My main concern and horror was the fact the kitchen, laundry room, guest bed and bathroom were INFESTED with cockroaches. INFESTED! If I could post pictures I would. I couldn't stand underneath the lights or the ceiling fan for fear one would fall on me. I opened the back door in the laundry room and was chasaed away by several that were hiding out underneath the door crack. The "sprayer" had been by to "spray" a few days prior. The property manager gave us some excuse saying he disturbed a nest. Those roaches were not "disturbed" in the least little bit. They were having a party and inviting all the friends around. I don't know about roach species but I know there were several different kinds and you can't just get rid of them with a snap of a finger. After the horror of the roaches, I didn't really want to look around any more but I did anyways. Such a mistake. I should have just said my goodbyes then. There was a several inch gap from where the floor started to where the front door started whenever you closed the door. That's probably where all those roaches came in from. No telling what else may have been able to get in through that gap. The desk was disgusting and sorely in need of a pressure washing and paint job. I don't even think they cleaned the apartment after the tenants moved out. There was a thick layer of dust over everything, the filters weren't changed, burn marks all in the carpet. The only thing that looked ok in that place was the master bedroom. Needless to say, I did not move my stuff in that day, wasted a whole lot of money and gained a whole ton of stress trying to find a new place within a day. The excuse I got from the manager was that she didn't have the budget to fix all of those things. If that was the case, I would have preferred for her to tell me instead of me finding out the day I am to move, with family in town to help and furniture on the way. This was the worst experience of my life and it could have been worse if I hadn't been smart enough to look around before moving in.
Overall, this is a very nice place to stay. The apartment is affordable, I've found a nice little spot by the beach and my neighbors are friendly. The staff here goes out of their way for you and they are friendly and courteous each time I see them. I've had no major problems ( just a few small maintenance issues that were taken care of right away). The community is kept clean, it's quiet and I plan on staying for a long while. Sometimes, I wish there was a pool - but I am next to the beach.
