I resigned my lease and what a nightmare it's been. Here I am posting again and revising my original review. My original review I gave this apartment 4 stars but I have to take it back. (And so you know, my original review was due to a contest conducted saying they would give $100 to the best review which I didn't win.) I originally came here loving the place, the neighborhood, the neighbors and location. Throughout my first year, I hardly ever asked for any maintenance as I did most of them myself. I didn't want to bother the staff and go through the hassle of having the maintenance guy come buy to do simple tasks like unclog my drains and etc (basically I never bugged them about too much maintenance issues). Last year they redid my neighbor's balcony upstairs, and in the process, completely destroyed my fence and gate. When they were done with the balcony work, they just stood up the broken boards and nailed them back together. After all the snow and the freezing winter of 2013, the fence completely deteriorated. In the spring of 2014, I complained about it because my dog kept running away, and they put it back up half-assed and patched the moldy pieces of wood with decaying pieces of wood. I have a 14lb dog and he's managed to push through the decaying fence and he's managed to run away 3 times already just by pushing his nose through the boards. I pay a $20 pet fee every month plus a large pet deposit, and I've told the staff about this issue multiple times. I've done what I could by placing pots and things to try to cover the holes. I've made about 5 phone calls about my fence since the beginning of the year. The sad part is, all my other neighbors facing 83rd street got new privacy fences, while I am one of the originals that had asked about it initially and they never had any work done to it. I was promised so many times... was given excuse after excuse. And now it's been a month since they last promised me they would work on it, and still nothing has been done while my neighbors are enjoying their privacy and safety of their pets. I also asked for the grout work to be redone, but instead they come in and patch a hole that was in the wall of my bathroom (due to the decaying plywood which makes up the wall) and they completely ignored my wobbly sink that has no grout and the bath tiles with no grout. I called about the grout work once again, and another maintenance guy comes by and re-patches the darn decaying wall that just seems like it cannot be saved.. Ever since Megan from management left, their has been a lack of value to any of the existing tenants. Every time I go to the leasing office to talk to somebody, I'm greeted with a sign that says they are out on a tour... and I am never able to come face to face with anyone. All my neighbor's feel the same way, that we don't get any service. There has been a major parking spot issue as well, and it seems like no one's voices are being heard. They are so busy deceiving newcomers with tours and showing them how great of a neighborhood it is, that they don't acknowledge the issues that the people paying them are having. I renewed my lease over 2 1/2 months ago on the condition that my fence would be fixed and that my grout work would be done (pretty simple enough considering they increased my rent by $30 just because I renewed it). You'd think they would do their best to get things done knowing that I'm paying them MORE this time around. Now I'm regretting my decision and I'm already thinking that I'm going to cut my stay here shorter than originally planned. If you are considering Mission Valley, look for a better place. Corinth and GoldOller are only about their money and they, like many other apartment complexes, could care less about their tenants rather they have made it a priority to just make their money.
I live here and enjoy the location, everything is fairly close to home. The neighborhood is great for kids & the community is quiet. Parking is easy & off the main roadway. Spacious living at an affordable rate, I would highly recommend it for anyone looking in this area. John G.
