This place was horrible! I myself work at a apartment complex in leasing...so does my wife actually....we stayed in a 3 bedroom on the second floor....the first issue that we were having was saying we have brand new carpet...clearly it was not....when this was brought up originally they stated do not worry about carpet damages we will cover that....they did not when it came time to move out...I understand it is my fault for not getting that in writing! In the second bedroom the window was cracking at the bottom where it is basically stress cracks...not from us...we did notify them of this. However the fun really began when out notice was lost....we had written down exact date when it was turned and as well as who turned it in...but had no copy of this....this was our first actual apartment so we learned the hard way...with lease termination fee's...my main concern was on the second floor in our living room the dip we had in our carpet....and the separation between carpet and walls...needless to say eventually I could just pull the carpet up because it was separated so much....there was termite damage as well as mold...nothing was done about this at all when we lived there...not even willing to switch to a different apartment....shows they really care about there tenants ;)
This place is disgusting, and the management is very unethical. I moved from out of state, and the unit they rented me was not at all as it was pictured or described. I repeatedly asked for pictures of the specific unit I would be renting, but they refused, saying 'it wasn't ready yet.' They sent me pictures of a different 3 bedroom apartment, and said it was 'identical.' They sent pictures of a nice unit with new carpets, newer energy efficient appliances, new flooring, etc. The unit they rented us was old, the appliances are rusty and broken, and the flooring is a huge problem. The carpet was saturated with dog urine stench, and I had to stay in a hotel for nearly a week until it was replaced. Of course they did not prorate my rent or pay for our hotel. My 2 year old got sick within 24 hours of entering the apartment. They didn't clean the subfloor under the new carpet, though, and you can still smell the animal waste through the chemical smell of new carpet. The staff was terribly rude and told me that my daughter was sick because she was a two year old, and we might have 'poor habits.' It was insulting and dismissive of the uninhabitable nature of the apartment. There are roaches. Not 'waterbugs' but german cockroaches in the kitchen. We can't even move our personal property into the unit, because it will get infested with roaches. It's all in storage. Colonial Village won't let me out of my lease, even though it's made my family sick. They expect me to pay two months' worth of rent, and an early termination fee, despite having asked to rescind the lease within 72 hours of signing it (we signed the lease Friday afternoon, asked to rescind first thing Monday morning). I have initiated court action to get out of this craptastic place. Save yourself the hassle and look elsewhere. The people who run this place ought to be ashamed of themselves. They have caused us financial ruin, due to the unexpected costs of hotel, medical costs, lost work, storage fees, etc.
THIS PLACE IS VERY HEAVILY INFESTED WITH DIFFERENT KINDS OF ROACHES AND MANAGEMENT DOES NOTHING ABOUT IT. DO NOT LIVE HERE!!!!
Walls are Thin! I lived here for 2 years and would wake up every morning when my neighbors alarm clock would go off! Not to mention the parking, it gets worse every month. They constantly add "reserved" spots for people making others park up to a 1/4 mile away. I will say that the neighborhood seems safe, there are tons of kids running around in the summer and you do not get an unsafe feeling even though you are surrounded by the "hood"
Great if your single and don't have any responsibilities. The amount of military folks here who stay up and are loud till all hours of the morning is out of control. I've lived here for about a year now and have 3 different tenants above me who are inconsiderate fuckheads who stomp around and play music all night long. Parking is unassigned so good luck getting close to your unit here. The maintenance guys are top notch though.
