OK, I've lived here for 11-12 years. All those ratings of 1star are generous. I've every problem they described. It's all true. Mice, roches, bad matainance, ( my oven was broken for 2 years, and I asked for a new one. Didn't get it. They had one maintenance man come over and told me if I wanted to use it needed to get down on my knees and light the pilot light) Anyway, the only reason I stay here is because it's only 7 minutes from my 88 year old mother. My brothers live to far to get here if anything happens. By the way, I've contacted Gates Hudson, they don't care. Their just trying to make money on the location being a short drive from DC. and 2 subway stations being not to far. Bit this place really is the pits! If you have money, don't waste it here. Just to let you know how really bad things are; When I moved in way back when, we had a swimming pool. It's been closed for 10 years. In the entire complex there might be 6 laundry rooms. Unless you're broke (and you'd better hurry up), or you just need to be here, don't come here.
The absolute worst I would never ever recommend this place this was the biggest mistake I ever made by moving to this place ,customer service is the worst in all the names that can describe it,the units are terrible they old ,broken and all .they unprofessional a few of them the only good ones in that complex is the cleaners.
Living there is always a problem I pay my rent they it on someone's else apartment. Then when things brake I call the to fix they never show up... the ladys in the office are very rude and everytime I fo in the for the same thing over and over again all I get is my bad... don't live here its the worst.
The worst apartment complex, the tenants are very loud and rude. When things break they take forever to get back with you . The parking is horrible and they are always towing for no reason , I wouldn't recommend living there .
I cannot speak for the rest of you. I have not had one roach or mouse since I've moved here 2 years ago. That was one of my biggest concerns with moving in this area. Not to say that the other older units don't have them because they way they look it looks like roaches would be in those apartments. And I have a renovated unit. So that may have something to do with it also. The overall appearance is ok. I mean there's dog poop everywhere. On the sidewalks, by the cars, and sometimes in the grass at the edge of the sidewalk. There are a lot of stray cats in the area so that makes me wonder about the mice problem I hear people talk about. However, in the spring and summer I've had a huge spricket problem. You know those spider crickets I get a lot of those living on the ground floor. The walls are paper thin I can hear the lady and her man upstairs getting it in, arguing, beating their kids, and last weekend my entire living room smelled like weed from the people upstairs smoking. Someone has thrown a rock at my window on several occasions as I'm trying to hang out in my room and let some fresh air in. The people drive crazy in the parking lot. It's a lot of aggressive drivers in that area one almost hit me the other day speeding out of the parking lot. Security is a joke.. They just sit in the cars all day driving around. One guy on the weekend spends most of his time standing up against the wall on his cell phone. I only seen one officer on foot walking around. All the others just sit in the cars. Or they park the car somewhere during the day and goes to hang out with the ladies in the rental office. One man came outside with a shotgun pointed at a teenager in broad daylight had to be around 3 in the afternoon as kids were coming home from school. Where was security then? Probably in the rental office or sitting in the car. The rental office hires someone new every other week it seems like. Ghetto speaking ladies in the rental office. I don't know if the Spanish lady is there anymore but she was their biggest asset. The rest of the staff should be fired or retrained on customer service. And do not pay your rent online they charge damn near $30 or more to make an online payment. Then they charge you late fee's after you've cleared your balance that has to be criminal. And the reason why I'm waiting to go to court now. It's sad that properties like these prey on people that have low incomes or no income. They take our money and provide us with the worst customer service and living conditions. Your are just money to them nothing more nothing less. A neighbor said that she has been there for 5 years now and she is leaving as soon as her lease is up. Because of the ladies in the rental office. She doesn't want to have to deal with them. I'm leaving after 2 years once my lease is up although I want to break it... Maintenance. Is the best thing they got going for them. However they can be slow at times. You have to keep contacting the rental office until they are irritated enough to have someone to come faster. And they are just now exterminating the units after me being there for 2 years. What a joke. They harass you for being late no grace period. And they treat you like the gum on the bottom of their shoes when you are late with rent and making a complaint. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place OR ANY OF THE SURROUNDING APARTMENTS LIKE Surrey Sq., or Regency Pointe. Don't do it.......... PLEASE DON'T SET YOURSELF UP FOR FAILURE. ALSO I WENT ON ZILLOW AND SEEN PENN LANDINGS PICTURES THE FIRST FEW ARE NOT PENN LANDING... NICE TRY THOUGH... SEE FOR YOURSELVES.. WE KNOW WHAT THESE UNITS REALLY LOOK LIKE. GATES OF HUDSON CARES ABOUT MONEY NOT THE COMMUNITY.
