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.
"Very impressed with the complex and with the staff. Monique was very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. Thank you for all your kindness."
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.
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 have been living in the Camden Yorktown Apartments for what appears exactly 4 months now and I must say my living here has been nothing but superb. Firstly, the price compared to the service I receive is greatly tilted to the latter. I am always astonished when rent comes along and I see the very reasonable price I am paying to stay here. The apartment complex itself is a medium sized one, not to big, not to small, and is nestled in an industrial area. I find this enjoyable because it keeps it relatively quiet during the day as the only sounds you hear are the muffled passing through of traffic. They painted the exterior of the complexes a few months ago, creating a rather beautiful set of complexes. The apartments are of dark brown, tan, and mixed-color stone, creating very aesthetically pleasing complexes surrounded by green grass and small trees, which are very well maintained I might add. In the interior of the apartments you will find all white walls and floors, white walls and tile in the bathrooms, and dark wood flooring in the kitchens. Upon entering (as with my apartment anyway) you will find the kitchen set diagonally to the doorway across the living room, creating maximum space in the room along with the bedrooms. The windows are also very large allowing a lot of naturally light to come into the rooms. As for the service, I have found no equal. The maintenance staff is extremely quick in servicing requests and the Camden staff is among the friendliest I have met. Any problem is met with a swift, helpful response and any concern or question is met with the same. The staff also throws parties and get-together's here and there, creating a very warm and friendly place to live. I truly feel taken care of here. As mentioned before the Apartments are in an industrial area, but within a 5 minute drive you can find any department store and restaurant you choose as well as quick access to Beltway 8, US 290 and Highway 6. In short, living here has been a pleasure and I have yet to find one complaint. If you are looking for a place to stay awhile, might I suggest the Camden Yorktown.
