Where do I start! So, I've only been here for about 2 1/2 months so far & I'm already ready to move. The area isn't to bad for someone like myself who is already from the area. Prior to moving here I checked the reviews & I was a bit skeptical about it at first. The reviews read that they have a roach & mice problem very bad. Upon receiving a phone call about being approved I came in & sign the paperwork to receive the keys. A few days after receiving the keys I receive a call saying my security deposit was suppose to be more then what I was told however I did not have to pay the additional because the mistake was not on my part. Since I've been here I've notice that this complex is all about their money & not necessarily pleasing their tenants. When you pay your rent you do not receive a receipt. Pets are allowed at no cost but they PROHIBIT pitbulls & threaten to have the dog put to sleep if your found with one. I keep my apartment very clean so no signs of rodents or roaches & I even placed extra steel wool in between the floor boards in which it looked as if they had already. The entire apartment has just been covered in paint to look new to the eye but you can still see the cracks, puckles, water spots & etc beyond the wall. Lets not get on the bathroom, it looks like they added tile over tile & the tub/tile has been painted over to cover up the mold. There's not screens in the windows so keep an eye on your kids & or birds. The model apartment isn't what you get necessarily this place is like a dealership, they do what they can to take your money. The buildings are trash & do not get cleaned daily like they should. Kids hang out in your building screaming, slamming doors & smoking weed. Parking is a mess and expect to go through the hassle of trying to get a parking pass for guest. The office staff with the exception of one young lady are very unprofessional. The maintenance guys, well at least the ones I've encountered were pretty honest & fixed what was broken but I've never really had to call them. Expect to have a high electric bill & I do mean $600-$800 because some apartments aren't inspected completely before tenants move in, that was my case. But on the upside of things the police do patrol the neighborhood often, there are bus stops on pretty much every corner if you don't a car, there's a shopping center right across the street, your all of 2 minutes from DC, the beltway is right there & the people in the community are pretty friendly. But here you pretty much get what you pay for & if you haven't noticed all the reviews say the same thing which means nothings changed over the years.
The place is clean and safe. The only problem is that this place has a mice problem. The price is reasonable.
i am truly dissatisfied. i cant wait until i move out. this place is terrible, not a place i would ever consider to be home. SMH. not a place for children. to many wanna be drug dealers, i cant wait for the national harbor to buy this property. then they will force all of these ghetto people out of here. would not recommend this place for a homeless person to live. they keep towing my car, and i always end up not paying, so they are setting me back for what reason.
Be sure to save all of your recipts from when you pay rent because the manager will say that you didn't pay rent then take as much money from you as they can. legally they can only take up to three months back of unpaid rent. I was lucky I saved all my recipts then after I showed her all 8 of my recipts she said it was because they didn't log my payments in the computer however I never got a late knotice. they also took all $200 of my deposit. charged. me 450 dollars because I didn't put in a written 30 day knotice that I was going to leave plus 450 to terminate my lease.
Hold on Yall got what roaches Lol
