I moved into Stockade View Apartments in November 2013. I don't know what these people are talking about. No bugs, only smells are the assorted ethnic meals at dinnertime, and I wish I had the nerve to knock on a door and ask for a taste. Apartments are clean with black appliances (dishwasher, self cleaning oven and refrigerator, we also have garbage disposals). Laundry room on site. Security door, with use of Fob to enter, locked mailboxes, Comfy furniture in lobby, and best of all I could bring my dog with me, not too many places accept dogs. Nice, friendly staff. All the comforts of home and none of the responsibilities, I am loving it.
Moved in here in March and I felt that I needed to post a review. This apartment complex has everything that you could possible ask for. Featured amenities include a modern elevator, high-tech security to keep any potential riff-raff out, a very economically based laundromat, stainless steel appliances in your kitchen area, is conveniently located in the heart of a booming downtown Schenectady, and is very reasonable for the size of the apartment dwellings and it's prime real estate location. If you're looking for a home in Schenectady, you're honestly not going to do any better than Stockade View Apartments!
The landlord is an absolute creap! He'll lie and promise all kinds of things until you sign the lease and are stuck in this horribly decrepit place. I am so embarassed of this building that I won't even invite any of my friends over. There is mold, bugs and disgusting smells throughout the entire building! There is garbage and peeling paint in the hallways and stairwells which he never shows you. Even the elevator stinks!!!There is supposed to be air conditioning, but it doesn't work to keep the apartment cool. It is 90 degrees outside and it is even hotter in the apartment! All this, while these air conditioners have been running non-stop for weeks! They are too small to cool the place. Everything is cheap, the landlord is an upright liar and schemer and can't even run his own life never mind an apartment complex. The landlord doesn't bother to pay the bills for the building which is why the trash doesn't get picked up. He is the WORST person you will EVER meet in your life!!!!!!! Please don't waste your time or money on this place. Wish I never moved in this disgusting place!!!!!!
as long as your objective is to find a safe place in schenectady and be closer to some of the businesses, this place is goign to serve the purpose.
Absolutely horrible, I couldn't agree more with Lisa's comment below. The landlord is a good salesman but runs a terrible practice. I moved in at the agreed upon date, yet had no appliances (fridge, oven, etc) until 3 weeks later and after constant badgering on my part. Dont even think about submitting a maintenance request, they will never be handled. The poor insulation and outdated ventilation system leads to ridiculously high utility bills which kill the reasonable rent. Even the water is disgusting and you get out of the shower dirtier than when you got in. The complex is dirty and trash seems like it is never picked up. Words cant describe how bad this place sucks. Worst experience ever and im pretty laid back, DEFINITELY DONT LIVE HERE
