Way back when we all were apartment hunting we were ecstatic to find affordability and the location within The Lakes Apartments. Sadly living here was a preview of what hell is like. Let me be so kind to write out a nice organized list for you. 1. Residents have their dogs without a leash outside. 2.You will likely have evidence of that same dog on your Toms or Jordans. 3.Occasionally you might be attacked by a dog while checking your mail. 4. Some weekends you might hear a smack down going on next door. 5. The Wake County Police Department will always be on site. 6. The ducks on the property will enjoy getting in front of your car :).
This place is rlly cool and the people,Roaches,And dilapidated structures really set the scene. Its almost like the Pitt DLC from Fallout: 3 10/10
DO not move here unless you seriously can't afford something else! I lived on the second floor the units are poorly made feels like your balcony is going to fall through. Staff is nice until they get your money.. area just looks like a cleaned up hood nice park though insulation is horrible
This place sucks big time. The only thing I like here is the fact that these apartments come cable ready and that's it. My electricity bill was extremely high because of poor insulation and they will not fix it. Also every year my A/C breaks when it is time to use it. Nosey neighbors looking like they wanted to rob you. Police out here every week due to disturbances. My home girl even told me she saw someone hanging from a second floor apartment (trying to steal someone's Marijuana) I move out next month and I am effin ready to go. ASAP!!!! My real rating would be no stars but you can't do less than one.
Let me start by saying that the staff of the Lakes are some of the friendliest people I've come across in Raleigh, but the buildings are dilapidated and run down. The appliances are painfully old. The walls are eerily thin, and far too prone to minor damages. My porch had to be completely re-done--AT MY REQUEST. The wood had been rotting for some time, to the point where half of a plank was torn to bits. Somehow, the staff overlooked this for weeks at a time, and only fixed the issue once I called. The tennis court is in terrible condition, overrun with weeds and other plants. The gym is a joke. There are holes in the wall, and the equipment is well, past it's prime. The gym showers are disgusting and rarely maintained, and the dog park has a clay pit towards the middle that becomes a nuisance to avoid whenever present. It's a shame that an apartment complex in such a wonderful location with such a beautiful entrance is home to some of the dingiest buildings.
