You get what you pay for. If you're looking for a cheap(er) place (college student, young, etc) then this place isn't so bad. Most of the residents are nice people, no drama, no crime. The problem is the place looks run down, and dogs bark all day and all night. Not bad in the short term. Wouldn't want to raise a family here though.
There shouldn't even be stars here! Never ever ever rent from them (Meb management services)! They are aweful and they don't care one bit about you! It was the biggest mistake of my life! All they care about is money. My apt was infested with cockroaches, and they did nothing about it! I had to pay $45 out of pocket to have it sprayed, because they wanted me to wait 2 weeks! Then when I needed to get out of my lease they flat out ignored my calls to them. I tried to work with them about the early termination fee and they wouldnt even talk to me! Then 4 months later they sent me to collections, they never even tried to contact me. Never rent from them trust me the price isn't worth it! I know others who have had the same problem. AVOID AT ALL COSTS! The apt complex is ghetto, and a little scary, there was 1 break in when I was there and I only stayed 2 months. Do yourself a favor and avoid Meb at all costs.
We moved here b/c we needed some place cheap. I would say it is a good place to start off in. Okay when we moved in the carpet was still wet, smelled like cigarettes and some things were cheaply done. The walls are thin and contain lead b/c they are really old apartments. If you like your sleep then don't move here, why the A/C sucks, pigeons coo on top of the AC, the trash truck is very loud. I lived in the back back but not so great. You can smell the trash, dogs barking all night,people dump off their trash so its alway full plus they throw dead trees and stuff behind there. Some lady walks her dogs in the alley and set all the dogs off. The water takes awhile to warm up and they don't unclog the tub or sink. The maintance is slow. It took us awhile to get our screen for our window. There wasn't much counter space in the kitchen, which I don't like, but if you don't cook it's not much of a problem. On the good side, there were awesome views of the Catalinas.The management was ok. The landscaping was very pretty in the central area of the complex, but not the outter back or sides and the parking lot,functional, but ugly, and sometimes scary, also short and close b/c we have a big truck and had a hard time parking. It's not covered, so be prepared to get into a hot car. Overall, it was a decent place to live. I don't think we live there again, but we don't regret choosing it to begin with.
