I've lived here for almost 2 years. Don't let the name fool you, there is nothing luxury about this place. Yes, the rent is cheap for such a close location to Uptown, University, and Matthews, and the square footage is awesome, but that's about it. The buildings are older. They need to be remodeled. It seems that all they do to your apartment prior to you moving in is throw a new coat of paint on the walls and new carpeting. They gym is a joke. The pool is hardly open. There are zero overhead lights in the living room or bedrooms. I moved in with broken blinds, cracks in my wall, a missing tub stopper, and lumps in the flooring. I've had several issues with pests (swarms of wasps, spiders, and even a bird) inside my apartment. Management didn't seem to care too much about it. They sent pest control a handful of times, but that didn't resolve the issue. I basically had to handle it myself. The walls are thin. I can hear my upstairs and neighbors beside me. The place is drafty and my energy bills fluctuate drastically. I really try to be positive about places where I live considering I don't want to pay outrageous Charlotte rent prices, but Somerstone's cheap prices aren't worth it in my opinion. My lease ends this summer and I won't be renewing. The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars instead of 1 is because of the prime location to just about everything.
Dont apply here. They are charging $50 for a app fee, plus a non refundable administration fee of $99. They also purposely ignore phone calls. Me and my girlfriend witnessed it when we came in. They are very unprofessional. They are racking up on app fees and administration fees.
