1.) The inside of the apartment is decent. Older model, non-updated appliances, but decent. 3/5 stars here. All went fine for a few months, and about a week ago, we smelled fire. I look at the fixture and it's smoking. Light bulbs were placed there before we moved. We take out the bulb, see that it's actually burning, and the fixture is slightly melted as well. Please check all apartments for incompatible bulbs. Had we not have been home, THIS WOULD HAVE TURNED TO A FIRE.
2.) This is a terrible place for people who are responsible dog owners. 0/5 stars. More specifically, for people who keep their dogs on leashes because they don't want their dogs to get in any altercations with other dogs. There is no weight limit. Their unleashed dog comes bounding up to ours and attacks one of my dogs. I wish that management would make this a safer place for dogs and owners by fully implementing their leashed dog responsible owner rules.
3.) Utilities. 0/5 stars. This is the third apartment complex I've been in, and I have NEVER seen such absurd utility charges. They send you a lovely little bill in the mail each month that you are expected to include in your rent. Ours is approximately $115 each month. PLEASE factor this into your budget when considering this apartment. The office staff will certainly not tell you this, so I am. For example, here's a breakdown of our current utilities bill that goes directly to the office: water $32.93, sewer $19.94, trash $19.66, gas $17.54, "C.A.M. FEE (this is the community maintenance fee... lol!!!!) $20.57, service fee $3.50. Grand total: $114.14. This is EXTREMELY HIGH.
4.) Maintenance: 2/5 stars. If constant construction noise bothers you, think twice about moving here.
5.) Office Staff: 2/5 stars. Although not particularly attentive, friendly enough. We haven't encountered any major issues except they ignored the fire hazard light bulb complaint.
6.) Safety: I've personally seen 3 car windows smashed since Oct.
