I appreciate that Maple Gardens has great rental prices, I have saved a ton of money living here. Also, maintenance is great, whenever I have an issue they come take care of it very quickly. BUT the neighborhood surrounding Maple Gardens is not desirable. I live here now and please be warned this is NOT a luxury apartment. The gym is not free. The "grocery store" is a little shop with lotto tickets and expensive snacks. The elevators are the nicest part of the building, because the hallways and floors are not nice. ALSO this building is roach infested. Walking in the hallways you can see roaches and dead mice sometimes. I have an extremely clean apartment and roaches always tend to find a way to trail in here through the vents. There are too many people in this building and I am sure they are not all clean so beware you will most likely experience roaches. Please don't be fooled by the other reviews these people must have been paid, Maple Gardens is not luxury and the area is not one that you will want to walk around in outside of the Maple Gardens gates. Now if you are looking for cheap and are absolutely desperate like I was than this would be a good option for you. Can't wait to move out ASAP!
I recently was looking to relocate from NY to NJ. I went here for a tour about 2 weeks ago and walked into the property where security was not very welcoming and saw two security people having a good conversation laughing and cursing.The property was very clean and landscape was very nice , I saw children playing and it was refreshing compared to what the outside looked likes outside the gates. I walked into the rental office and was greeted by a nice young lady at the window eating at her desk with a mouth full of food and texting on her cell phone. I was given a card to fill out and i returned it. A gentleman by the name of Alfredo was professionaly dressed and extremley polite and curtius. He showed me a 1 bedroom extreme which was lovely. The area would would be my only concerne and the professionality of the security people.Probably The service I recieved from the Leasing agent Alfredo would be the only reason I move to maple Gardens.
Experience was great excellent location everything is afar, I'll definitely will come back if I have too. Thanks to Alfredo, really appreciated your help. Excellent thanks.
Recently visited this facility to see things for myself because lately I've decided to move from my current place. The website speaks very highly of this "gated" community but outside the gates you see the reality! I arrived by car thank god because the surrounding area is not nice at all. Poverty doesn't look this bad in NYC - anywhere! I'm no stranger to the ghetto but what I saw of the immediate neighborhood outside their gated community reminded me of the NYC slums during the 80-90s crack era. In broad daylight I saw obvious drug addicts begging or trying to sell stolen goods as soon as you exit the highway. Once you arrive at maple gardens it's easy to spot because it very well kept compared to what you see outside. I drove up to the security window and was greeted with a blank stare - no greeting or even a hello! I informed the security guard that I wanted to go to the rental office to see their rentals and was handed a paper pass but given no direction. So I asked "do I just go straight to the back area? I've never been here before." The security guard just nods his head and gives me a dumb look -so I drive towards the back slowly and eventually see a rental office sign of to the side. I try to park and see spaces marked rental but there are none available. So I just park close by. As soon as I enter the rental office I overhear a very pissed off tenant. I have to wait awhile until I can ask about the parking but of course I am listening to the commotion. I eventually get the story directly from the disgruntled tenant first hand. Their is a process to follow when visitors plan to stay and park on the premises. The tenant explained she followed the rules but is now being told the visitor will be required to pay for parking while there but she says she was never informed that payment was expected. Obviously communication is not at its best. Once the pissed off tenant leaves-still pissed off...I ask about the parking issue and was instructed to put my pass in the window and my car would be ok. Once I'm given their packet of information I read all their rules about visitor parking and I do see that there are fees. I was able to tour several apartments and I must say every apt I saw was beautiful but in various stages of renovation. The grounds were immaculate as well as the buildings and the rent prices are excellent. Because I have no children I am considering moving here simply because the rent is so cheap it will allow me to save more. The surroundings outside the gates are a definite drawback.
I really enjoyed my Maple Gardens Apts experience. It has friendly staff and superb maintenance crews. I strongly recommend Maple Gardens Apartment to anyone looking for an apartment. It's location is strategic as it links to mainly almost all NJ transit routes.
