Looks aren’t Everything

  • 3 of 5

The pictures of the property truly reflects what the property looks like. If it was just that, I would gladly have given it a five star rating. Location was good and restaurants were close by. The problems that I experienced were the directions given to get into the property weren’t accurate, the shower head fell off when I was taking a shower and there was very little water pressure as well as the dryer not working to start with. On the bright side the property manager did quickly respond to my issues. However I guess you can’t fix the water pressure.

Nice place but highway noise kept us up at night.

  • 4 of 5

The place is very nicely rehabbed. The location is next to highway and we had a unit that backed up to it. Truck traffic was very noticeable and kept us up. We had to turn on the air to drown out the noise. Additionally the dryer did not work.
