Courtney park apartments: what can I say? I completely agree with every negative comment posted. My girlfriend and I moved here January 2nd 2014, simply because it was the least trashy apartment complex in our price range (around $1000.00 /month). Upon move in, our walls were dirty, still filled with holes from pictures and posters, fixtures were missing light bulbs and protective bowls, our restroom sink was clogged with an ungodly amount of hair, our water heater was new and never adjusted, our new washer still had the moving bar in rendering it unusable, and our dryer was so clogged it would take four 80 minute cycles to leave clothes still damp (that actually just got fixed 2 1/2 weeks ago when we had put a work order in during first month), our sink was turned off and when we turned it on we realized it was off because of a massive leak that spewed gallons of water for 4 days until it was fixed, and we asked if our water bill would be pro-rated for this loss and were denied. Not to mention when they showed us the apartment they said it will have to be cleaned before move in, yet it never was and the carpet was atrocious. I complained that the dead bolt on the door would need to be replaced because it was broken, but 3 months later of struggling daily with the door lock my key snapped off in it, stranding me and my short haired dog outside on a 35 degree winter evening with harsh winds for 4 hours until a repair man showed up from a sister apartment complex who didn't even have the correct tools and had to return later (also leaving me to clean up the shards of metal when he was finished). Lastly, I've been confronted and even yelled at by management for allowing a guest of ours to have a 4 month old little puppy near the pool area. It was completely uncalled for and embarrassing conduct on her part however I still cannot get corporate to return my calls. All in all, breaking the lease is seeming more affordable by the day (which, by the way, is over $2100 PLUS 2 months rent in advance). Thanks for reading and heed my warning: AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! oh and we were told our heating bill would be around $30 as well ..but our first heating bill was $220....

My experience living at Courtney Park are mixed. I have lived there for over two years and moved out for various reasons. 1)The heating and AC units are so old and inefficient that my Electric bill in the summer would go over $200 a month and that was keeping the AC at 76 degrees. 2) It is very common to see people drying their clothes on their balconies because the clothes dryers were always plugging up, similar to a Chinese laundry. 3) Every year my rent was increased by $80 a month. 4) Renters are allowed to use their balconies as storage sheds, very tacky looking. 5) When I had service done in my apartment they usually had to come back twice to finish the job. Why would anyone pay to live in a old dilapidated apartment when they could live in a new more energy efficient apartment for the same price. The people that work in the office are very nice and accommodating and it’s a very dog friendly complex with lots of green space to walk your pets.

I read the review of the person who had mentioned bed bugs at Courtney Park Apartments, 4470 S LeMay Ave., Ft Collins, CO. These apartments definitely are misrepresented. The counter tops are 35 YEARS old, chipped and scratched, the varnish on the wooden cupboards is stripped in areas, and the kitchen cupboard shelving is worn resembling that of unsanded, rough, raw pressboard. The bathtub is chipped and patched with a different color of enamel (patchwork); AND THERE ARE COCKROACHES! Yes they definitely have bugs. Upon moving into the complex on June 1, 2014; I was greeted by Cockroaches. After immediately reporting this issue to management, the exterminator did not show up until four days later. Today, over three weeks later, June 19, 2014; I still have Cockroaches; have requested a revisit by the exterminator a week ago, and have not heard a reply. Moving into this complex was a HUGE mistake and has been extremely costly. As a result of the Cockroaches, I have been eating out everyday. "Think about it" would you eat from dishes where COCKROACHES are running rampbid. I signed a year lease and it was one of the biggest mistakes; unfortunately I believed the saleman who showed me the OLDER model apts. but stated, "I don't know for sure, but I THINK you are getting a newly remodeled apartment! HAHAHAHA

This apartment complex is horrible, I regret ever living here. The front office staff is very unprofessional and does not care for the residents. Nothing in the apartment worked right and trying to get the maintenance people to fix it took an act of Congress. The stairs are in many building are falling apart and I almost fell through two flights. This complex is a dump and is over priced. I will be reporting the complex to the Colorado Apartment Association.

I was very disappointed by the quality of the apartments in relation to the pictures they have posted on their website. My main complaint about Courtney Park though was the staff. I had to call the management several times to get repairs performed, which was quite frustrating. For example, I put in at least 6 calls for repairs on my toilet in Feb and they weren't completed by the time I moved out in June! The staff are very outwardly nice, but I find that their tactics were very passive aggressive to attain their goals (i.e. not returning calls, turning the blame around on you, etc.). I strongly feel that the upper management who operate the complex needs to look into hiring new front office staff for Courtney Park. Also, beware of the hidden charges of this complex. They conveniently "lost" my Move-In Inspection form (and then they accused me of not handing it in), so they proceeded to charge me for repairs in areas that were already damaged prior to me moving in (i.e. holes in the wall, dirty oven, rust on the washer/dryer, broken blinds, leaves on the balcony which I cleaned out but obviously more blew on the day they must have inspected it, etc.). These very minor items cost me almost $200 at move-out! Definitely a place that I would NOT rent from again. Courtney Park is very much a "caveat emptor" / Buyer Beware complex! Be careful about the hydro bills, too...I asked when I moved in how much the heating would be per month and I was quoted $30, but in the wintertime my hydro was easily over $100/month with me even keeping the thermostat at 60 deg or lower! I know I lived on the first floor, but that's a very deceptive answer that I was given by the staff about the monthly hydro charges. Three of my co-workers also lived in the complex and we all agreed that we would not have chosen to live there had we known. All of us rented off of the Internet prior to moving to Fort Collins because we were all from out of state.
