Positive Apartment Reviews and RatingsUnsanitary Apartment Complex ( over a year ago )

Dont move here unless you want to deal with mice. Maintenance does nothing, leasing staff does nothing.

When we first moved into our two bedroom apartment I couldn't be happier. It was definitely the roomiest apartment around at a price that didn't seem ridiculous. The area has tons of parking, all of the maintenance and grounds people are exceptionally nice, and it's really close to basically any type of store we would need to get to.
The first thing I realized is that most of the rooms here do not have lights in the ceiling. I'd never lived in a place where several of my wall outlets were being sacrificed just to have something connected to a light switch. Seriously, why do I need 3 outlets right next to each other that ONLY work on a switch? That's just silly. And it made me buy quite a few lamps.
Around the second month of being here we both felt rather unsafe in the parking lots at night as a gang of teenagers constantly patrols outside the apartment complex around midnight. At one point police were chasing said teenagers (who ran into our complex and made me feel 100% less safe) and we haven't seen them since.
Having water at all in the mornings is a constant struggle it seems. When someone in the building is having water problems they shut off water to everyone in that complex without any warning to the rest of the tenants. It always seems to happen during those morning hours right when you're getting ready for work. Mid-shower with a head full of shampoo is not the best time to have the pipes run dry. If that wasn't irritating enough, hot water also becomes a commodity. I would understand if it was only in the mornings and the evenings, but we lose it periodically throughout the day at random intervals with really no rhyme or reason.
I haven't seen any rodents so far (thank god!!!) but as a huge neat freak I was absolutely appalled when I found out our ENTIRE COMPLEX is crawling with cockroaches. Some of the tenants think they might be moving along the water pipes but it's still gross and no one I've spoken to seems to know their origin. I can't point out a place in the kitchen or the bathroom that doesn't have all the caulking pulling away from the walls. It's funny little things like that you don't really notice until a bug is crawling through the sandwich you've just made. I've been killing them off with roach hotels but they keep coming back and leaving really disgusting empty egg cases on my sink. I am filled with revulsion every time I see one as that means 40 or more fresh new roaches have been born for me to try and kill. UGH.
The people in the office are pretty good as far as taking up your issues, but half the time I tell them things it doesn't get done. Vanessa is the only one I've spoken to that's actually informative and kind. I wish for an army of Vanessas to be cloned and used in all manner of realty purchase/rental. There was some gentleman in there the other day that said nothing to me but incorrect information. I have no clue who he is, but after dealing with his attitude and lack of knowledge about the apartment, I'd rather not get better acquainted.
Also, I got all excited when we got a mailer saying that we could pay our rent and water bills online. I went in, signed up, and saw the ridiculous fees associated with it. With a slightly broken heart I gave up on that awesome convenience. $27.54 to pay my rent and you don't even take VISA? Come on guys...
Despite all the things that truly irk me about this place, I feel as though I will be trapped here for another 2 years. I'm in no position to move at this present time and once your first year lease is up they lock you into a 2 year lease and up the cost of the apartments yearly. It probably wouldn't bother me nearly so much if I didn't feel like our concerns about things (bugs, water, hoodlums, etc) were just brushed to the side.
