Apartment complex great. Apartment needs updates

  • 3 of 5

Apartment complex is great. However the unit really really needs new carpeting and could use some additional updates. It was though stocked with the basics everything you need. It is also roomy and has a nice balcony. It is a mile walk to Downtown Culver City which was farther than I expected. You need to pick up your key near the airport so make sure you get it before you go to Culver City.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

I am not sure why I have the option to place my review on this site.I reserved this unit via Live Luxe from 5/31/17-6/4/17. I feel they could've had better communication with me; however, a manager nicely went out of her way & brought me the rental keys due to my planes late arrival. The unit was advertised as having a pool to use. I was not informed of it being under renovation.I felt this was the rental company's responsibility to let me know prior to my stay. The pool was a significant reason why I chose to stay here and I would've liked to have had a choice to find another rental.The rental company apologized and mentioned they were unaware. I was offered a chance to switch to another rental and I accepted the offer but no one got back to me with any further options. Upon entering, the carpeting was filthy. There was stain after stain after stain. I was informed there wasn't enough time to clean the unit between renters and prior renters had children. The stains looked like they were embedded , but I was told they occurred recently from prior guests. There was a sticky substance running down the screen of the slider and a huge sticky stain in front of the door. Also upon arrival, the vertical blind in the master b/room was damaged. I gently moved the blinds across approx 1 ft and 2 panels fell to the floor. I immediately reported it to rental company and they said there was no report of the blinds having prior damage. I feel they were strategically placed to make it look like they weren't broken.There were no pieces of broken panel on the carpet. The toilet became clogged from normal use. I was told it would be looked at, but no one came to fix it during my stay and fecal matter with urine remained sitting in the toilet.The decorations in the unit were nice. The appliances and furniture showed use but still acceptable. There was just enough utensils and towels for my stay. I enjoyed having secured parking.The price per night would have been fair if the unit was clean and the pool was available.I was informed I deserved a compensation and that it usually takes 5-7 days to get the security deposit back. I followed the rental company's rules, keys were both turned in, I left earlier than my given departure time, and took exceptional care of the unit and items within it.To my knowledge, as of 7/16/17 I have not been compensated nor has my deposit been returned. I would not rent this unit again. I hope others have a better experience

Loved it! Amazing Melrose style so beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The Amethyst Apartments is such a beautiful place to stay. It was like a Melrose Place style. Separate buildings very private. No traffic noise.Very welcoming entrance. Absolutely beautifully kept grounds. Extremely clean when you walk around. The flowers smelled absolutely amazing. The swimming pool was always heated to a perfect warm temperature (one of the best pools I ever stayed at). The hot tub was hot and for the colder evening temperatures we were in it until close. The apartment had a beautiful large balcony. And a bonus was the washer and dryer. Secure underground parking. Great location close to do many things if you have a vehicle. The inside needs a few upgrades. The carpet minor stains. Pots and pans needs to be replaced. Microwave handle was missing. Coat hooks by door were all broken. We had to buy knives, foil, plastic wrap, salt and pepper. But overall an absolutely amazing place to stay! I loved it and would recommend this place to anyone in LA.

Best location and Space for the Money

  • 4 of 5

I was here in town for the 8th annual LA Web Festival at Sony Entertainment Studios. I was amazed how close this property was to the venue. It was also walking distance to several amazing restaurants. The staff was very professional. Laurie, the Guest Service Manager made check-in a breeze. She was very helpful and was able to answer any questions that I had about the area. She was also very knowledgeable regarding area attractions, dining recommendations, and nightlife attractions which is very important when guests are not familiar with the area. I would definitely stay here again and I have already recommended it to another person.

Great property/Poorly maintained

  • 2 of 5

When you enter the property there is a sign requesting that you remove your shoes, which I immediately did - actually I thought that was a bit much but did it anyway. Once inside I discovered the wall to wall carpeting had stains literally every few feet. I immediately let the management company know and was told that they can't clean the carpet when they have back to back rentals. In fact, the place was dirty from top to bottom. The baseboards were filthy and there were cobwebs on some ceiling corners. The cabinet that holds the kitchen garbage can smelled bad. The place is poorly lighted with inadequate lamps. Several light bulbs were burned out and were never replaced, even though I let the management company know within minutes of arriving and was told they would be replaced. For all the hype about the quality of the property, the actual conditions were disappointing.

Staff of rental company difficult to deal with. They mostly seemed disinterested or annoyed as if I was somehow being a bother. I had to call several times after we left the property before our security payment was returned. I was told the day we left that the money would be returned by next business day and a week later no action had been taken. Finally I called and spoke to an efficient and professional staff member and was told the process would be initiated immediately. I received a receipt to that affect within the hour and the funds have been returned.

The good stuff - the apartment was spacious and the location was excellent. There is a nice outdoor patio where we took our breakfast (but no grill as stated online). Culver City is close to the beach and well situated for easy access to the rest of the city. The regular residents of the complex were rarely seen and when they were, were friendly.
