I lived here for over 2 years. definitely get what you pay for. my upstairs neighbor was RIDICULOUSLY loud. I talked to him, then called the office. they claimed they called him to tell him to quiet down, but nothing changed. kept having to call the office until I eventually gave up. I never saw anyone smoking weed but the smell is strong around a lot of the apartments. the younger people in the apartments do get loud & rowdy at night. the office staff does nothing about it when you call to make complaints. the staff is nice, just kind of useless when it comes to those situations. the appliances are super out dated, so is the laundry room & fitness room. I had a broken eye on the stove since I moved in & they never fixed it. it didn't look like they even cleaned the place before I got there. there were weird & gross stains everywhere. I had to clean the walls, doors, & everything else with bleach. & there are stray cats EVERYWHERE. they'll crawl into your back porches & poop & they'll cry all night long. they sound like a baby crying. some of them are strays, some belong to owners. they do crawl up the trees & onto the roofs. so if you're on the second floor, I'm sure you'll hear them fighting & crying all night. again, the office does nothing. doesn't call the owners or animal control or anything. I did the refer a friend, & when she first moved in she loved it. but when they started repainting a couple months ago, they took down her 200$ patio shades she had outside & just took them. she called the office & they claimed they took it, said they would look for them, then supposedly couldn't find it. nothing like that ever happened to me, but I think anyone reading this should know her story. it's really just a very old apartment complex that looks the part & charges super low rent with inconsiderate people & useless staff.
I lived here for five months. I recommend it for you. The staff are very kind, friendly and helpful. It is quiet place and safe. Maintenance is excellent. I will rate it 5/5 over all.
This place has both good and bad. People usually only make reviews for the extremes of either side. When I was upset, I gave a 1-star review, but I don't think that's fair (and definitely biased). Overall, I do like it here; this is my home. It's really affordable, at the center of everything, near my work, bigger than my last apartment, etc. I personally find the laundry room needing a bit of a tune up, but other than that everything's fine. The maintenance crew is really nice and awesome. They ARE understaffed, but they do the best they can, and thankfully I'm a patient person. The management is nice until everyone has a mass-repair situation; they get stressed and sound a little snappy, but I can relate when it comes to angry customers calling in constantly (Customer Service is NOT just getting what you want, whenever you want). All in all, I'd say 3-4 in rating. I like it, my roommate would definitely give a 1-star rating, but it DOES depend person to person, so maybe check it out yourself to form your own opinion as well :-) UPDATE: 11/09 -- Yesterday, I got a notice dated 09/20 stating that I am required to give a 60-day notice with intent to move, by 10/20.... But i only just got it yesterday, 11/08... and I would think to dispute it, but the actual date on the notice is from September, so they could claim ignorance on the matter... If this is their ploy to keep tenets, it makes me very upset. To top it off, the notice we received yesterday states that if we don't renew by Oct 31st (8 days before we received this notice), then the renewal rate is higher than it would've been had we actually gotten the option to renew beforehand.
I've lived here over a year and just love it. My one bedroom is 100' larger than my last apartment, and it has so much storage space! 3 large closets, and a storage room on the balcony. I've met so many nice neighbors here. I live in the back of the complex, and it's very quiet. I don't think you'll get more bang for your buck anywhere else in Tucson. The office staff has always been helpful, courteous, and nice to talk with.
Honestly i'm upset I even have to give this place 1 star. I lived here for less than a year. I referred someone to the property who ended up moving in and they didn't want to give me my credit for my rent that say they will give. And then a lady in the office called me and accused me of having pets that I don't have and claimed multiple people saw me coming in and out of my apartment with a dog and told me I had to pay. I continued to tell her that it wasn't me and i hadn't been living there for two months as I was out of the STATE and she proceeded to say "we know it was you, and we will find out and we will find you" 10 minutes later she called back and said they found out it wasn't my apartment and that they were sorry... Maybe you should look into situations like that before you proceed to harass me. I guess she saw another black women and assumed it was me, Not all black people look the same. I am so happy that I no longer live in these apartments. The staff is rude and condescending. I DO NOT RECOMMEND MOVING HERE.
