I love living at this amazing apartment complex! I have received nothing but quick & friendly service. I very much enjoy the sleek and professional atmosphere of the complex along with the amenities. I work at NOV so it's very convenient living 1 mile away.
The property is clean, well maintained and safe. The apartment units are well designed with spacious floor plans and nice features. Each time I have gone to the front office, the staff and property manager have always been polite and extremely helpful. The community and resident events hosted by Camden are so much fun. Camden really cares about their residents!
The Camden Yorktown units are well maintained, have an excellent and courteous staff, and a great location – close to Beltway 8, 290, Hwy 6 and I-10. It is a newer property, with well-designed floorplans and decent closets and storage. If you need more storage, there are storage rooms available in every building and additional garages. We have been living in a two bedroom unit, the Brittany, but the prices have continued to rise, so we will be transferring into a 1 bedroom Normandy. The kitchen is very workable and the units feel spacious and open. The only downside has been the noise of A/C units outside the 1st floor bedrooms (right next to the window). The property is well maintained and the head of maintenance is excellent. With any luck, the pricing for apartments in Houston will level off and we will be able to continue to live here.
I've lived here for a almost a year and a half my overall experience has been relatively good with Camden Yorktown. Below are some specifics. Pros: -The apartment itself is great! All appliances, HVAC, cabinetry, sinks, facuets, toilets, etc. are up to date and work very well. -Any maintenance requests you send in are resolved quickly. -The apartment grounds are kept in excellent shape, nearly perfect actually. -Relatively quiet place to live/sleep. -The on-site gym is good for an apartment gym. A decent set of free weights, four treadmills, three ellipticals, medicine balls, and various machines for the major muscle groups are present. -Office staff are friendly. I've always been greeted kindly and feel welcome. -Good place to live if you work very close by. My work is about a mile down West Little York and the commute is very short. Saves on time and gas for sure! -Clientele that live here is good. Mostly families and young adults. I haven't had any issues with crime or feeling unsafe walking around at night. Cons: -Expensive. I'm living here because it's close to work, but I realized that I could also be paying for a house with twice the square footage of my 2-bedroom apartment for slightly less than my monthly rent. -Pricing scheme is odd. Each individual unit is priced uniquely and these prices seem to go up and down depending on how their corporate office "anticipates" supply/demand. When my first lease was up, they offered me a renewal of about $300 more per month, which was ridiculous. I transferred to a different unit that had more square footage for only $50 more a month instead of renewing at that same unit. Why not just let me stay where I was originally for the extra $50/month? Doesn't make sense to me. -Extra fees add up quickly. $42/month for basic cable and $20/month for trash pick-up are mandatory. If you transfer to a different unit, they'll try to charge you an additional move-in fee because it's a new unit. -Parking can suck sometimes. The east side of the complex is pretty bad, there's not enough parking for the amount of residents there, which causes them to have to park farther and farther away the later in the day it gets. -Traffic in front of the complex on West Little York can be terrible after work (5pm-7pm). It's not always terrible, but I've noticed that it does happen at least a couple evenings out of an ordinary work week. -Large speed bumps get annoying!
I like the apartment regardless of the traffic noise, the office rips off moved-out tenants by overcharging cleaning fees. do take a lot of pictures and ask what's not included in the lease, it can be any amount for no reason.
