Where should I start, the useless amenities? the daycare service during the weekends? Nosy and unprofessional staff that opens your packages? the jacked up prices that fluctuate about 100$ for the same room. Basically this is a place that depends on the exploitation of students, they are not helpful and if you have a problem, they don't care if you are in the middle of law school or if you are a thirty year old grad student, you will still get the same unprofessional treatment and be exploited. This building is a daycare for the obnoxious loser, spoon fed adolescents, who's only past time is drinking to the point of throwing up in the elevators and leaving the halls looking like they do by inviting groups of more losers who have no place to go on the weekends because they cant get in or are to cheap to pay a cover charge, this is the place they end up. What else? be ready for preferential treatment, hopefully you dont have a problem unless your parents are the ones taking care of all of your issues with management (they better be old rich hags) because other than that it doesn't even matter if your paying 20k a year in out of state tuition These people don't care. They want your money, they want to trick you whatever way they can by changes in pricing (im paying 750$ for an 8x8 room prices on the web have dropped, they have offered me to pay less by signing on for another 12 months.. yea right) prices on the web for a new lease is 50$ less a month for new leases. These people are hilarious because they are actually serious. Ive had it with this place and their fake amenities pool closed more than half the year, gym is tiny for this whole building) so 0 amenities, just the location which is about the ONLY reason that one would even consider this place, and even then you can move anywhere within a mile from here pay less and have 10X more amenities, AND save money. So thats what this place is all about. If your 18 and your parents are rich and cant stand your obnoxious idiot behavior, high school you weren't cool and want a second shot at being cool around high school kids, if you've never lived outside your parents home. This is the place for you.
the new management is awesome. they stay out of your hair unless you need anything and then are are pretty good at responding and fixing everything. The views are sick and the location in denver is better than anything else i looked at before renting. the rooms are pretty good size, and the staff and location make up for anything bad anyone might say about this place. wish i knew about it before i did.
Apartments: My experience at Auraria Student Lofts, also known as "The Inn" or "The Inn at Auraria"... First, I moved into a four bedroom apartment which sucked. My roommates were not the cleaness or friendliest people. I lived in that apartment for about two months and then decided to upgrade to a two bedroom apartment. Two bedrooms are much better. The apartment windows are larger and the layout of the apartment is more open. Drugs: Now for the bad part. I did not enjoy the constant marijuana smoke in my apartment coming from my heating/air conditioner vent. The smell lingered in the apartment due to the fact that there is not a way to open the windows (safety reasons). Majority of the kids here are either drug dealers or drug users. The drugs of choice in this building are Marijuana and Cocaine. Please be careful if you have an addictive personality. Thursday through Saturday are the party days. There are security officers on duty from Thursday to Friday each week. Security: We use key fobs to enter the building. The security would be great if the generous teens did not let homeless people in the building. Instead of asking someone do they live here, they just let them in. Kind of weird and very dangerous! Rent: I think the apartment building is very generous about paying rent. Rent is due on the first of each month and the apartment building gives you until the third or fifth to actually pay your rent. Amount of Rent: The actual apartments are not worth the amount of money you pay. It feels like you are living in a hotel versus an apartment. Good luck to whoever chooses to live here. With all of the negative and positive feedback that I have provided, this apartment building is by far the best of the three student housing options at the Auraria Campus (Metro State, UCD, and CCD). Tips: FEEL OUT THE INVENTORY SHEET THE FIRST DAY THAT YOU MOVE IN AND TURN IT INTO THE APARTMENT! CHECK YOUR LEASE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY PUT THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF MONTH ON THERE THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO RENT.
IDK WHAT IS UP WITH THESE REVIEWS! I have lived at the Inn for over 2 months now and it is by far the best living experience I have ever had! The security here is super tight electronic keys to get in the building and even to use the elevators now. Not a single one of the people and i know a large majority of them have told me something has been stolen. THIS IS COLLEGE! People do drugs in college get over it nobody here is an addict. There is a cop here on weekends to keep parties from getting out of hand. I have not heard of a single occurrence of violence. The view is amazing, depending on the size of your window, some are large some are small. The rooms are spacious and you get a killer deal on utilities that all work great. Fully Furnished = awesome. Location is amazing everything in walking distance from clubs to the mall and the light rail. The staff is extremely friendly and chill. They throw parties in the lobby with free food etc. So the only conclusion i can come to is that the people who are putting up these ratings are spoiled rich kids and their parents that expect that student housing and apts will be like living in their million dollar homes and sheltered neighborhoods. I LOVE THIS PLACE!
We just moved our daughter out of the Inn today. We had a year lease since she worked full time downtown after second semester at Metro. The 3 months she lived down there this summer the air conditioning in her apartment was not functioning. The girls complained various times to management and maintenance and were told the only way the rooms would be cooler was if they left their bedroom doors open-unlocked. There is no way you want to leave your flat screen, laptop, ipod,expensive personal items left unprotectected. So they just had to live with the unbearable heat. Today we had our check out and maintenance was removing the broken unit and was going to replace it. Could not this have been done 3 months ago when it stopped functioning? I went down to the front desk and talked to a manager about having a rent adjustment made for having to do without air for 3 months. He said it wasnt his job to do anything about it-and that my daughter could have moved to another apartment. There is a fee associated with this and alot of inconvenience since she had been living there for 9 months.I guess an owner is going to call me-I will post if this happens. On a positive note, Wes, who checked us out today was very pleasant and friendly, a good employee for the company.
