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!
Overall, the community is nice. I love that it's relatively quiet, feels safe and the location is conveniently accessible to major freeways. There are a few things that would discourage me from renewing my lease or recommending this particular Camden community to family/friends. First, the office won't accept deliveries if you are not home; a resident has to make special arrangements to pick up packages at a local Fedex or UPS location which is a huge inconvenience (this was not their policy when I signed my lease) Secondly, the system they use for visitors is insane - particularly if you have a roommate, like I do. Only one roommate can register their cell phone number with the office. My number is the registered number, but when a visitor arrives for my roommate, in order to grant them access, my roommates visitor has to call my number and I have buzz them in remotely from wherever I am...I may be working, traveling, or unable to answer my phone (and vice versa with my roommate). This means my roommate has to drive/walk to the gate to let their visitor in, if I cant get to my phone. Gaining access through the gate for a visitors should not be granted by anyone other than the resident who has a visitor- not contingent on someone else. Lastly, I don't like being forced to use a particular cable provider. Camden apparently has some contract where ALL residents have to use the provider they choose - which is Comcast. Residents not only pick-up their own boxes at a local Comcast service center (which was terribly crowded with long waits times when I arrived) but are also required to do the set-up yourself. Camden advertises that cable is "included" but you actually pay an additional $42 per month technology fee on top of your rent whether you want "basic cable" or not (this was not explained until the day we sat down to sign our lease). I have lived in really nice apartment communities before moving to Camden. I moved simply to be closer to the city limits. In my opinion, the best apartment communities are those with the friendliest staff who are willing to make residence stays exceptional without compromising value. These issues are evident that resident conveniences are not a priority with Camden.
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 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 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.
