It is a basic apartment complex. Mostly it has been ok, the place seems safe and I have not seen a hint of breaking into cars. On the other hand they are too cheep to haul off the garbage or recycle as often as needed, and it creates a whole mess for everyone. And then we get told not have so much trash or recycle. Um yeah, way to solve the problem folks! But none of that was enough for me to write this review. The complex was just purchased by AMC, and now setting up auto pay is $10. Actually using it is $2.50 a month. I guess they actually want to not use it and hopefully be late with the rent, because the late fee is $150. So I feel like I went from marginally competent management, to a new management looking to nickle and dime me at every opportunity. Update: Down to one star. I got nickled and dimed for the $150. The first was a Friday and between a doctor appointment and work, I didn't get in the office to pay the rent. Monday is the fourth, cha-ching, $150 for them! And they demanded certified funds. I read through my lease, they can't demand that! So I went back and left my check. Do they really want to go to court? The blond chick in charge her probably does. Not a nice person at all. Even the UPS guy can't stand her rudeness.
Rent is way too high for what you get. Outdated appliances and no microwave. Walls are paper thin and you can hear clearly conversations in the adjacent apartments even when they're speaking at a normal level of conversation. Forget about maintenance requests. And now have to smell the pothead's smoke when walking the dog or trying to barbecue. My patio floods easily when it rains due to poor drainage of this property. There has been a huge hole dug up outside of my apartment for several months that is covered with a piece if plywood and the pile of dirt beside it. I can't wait for my lease to be up. I maintain the apartment very well, but based on other reviews, I won't be surprised if they try to not refund what is owed to me.
We have been here for just over a year and have had a very pleasant experience r overall. They are dog friendly (even with big dogs), run contests for money off rent, have community yard sales.... The apartments are currently being repainted on the outside which is looking great. The layout is very roomy & quiet. We have 3 dogs above us but would take that any day over screaming children. Complaints: dogs off leash, people parking in carports that they have not paid for, pet owners that do not pick up after pets. Overall we are very happy with this apartment experience.
This has to be one of the worst places ive ever lived! Ever since they fired andrew its gone to crap! 1/2 the tennants dont speak english. One litrle brat & her brother think they own the placr. My daughter has been bullied repeatedly & manager well shes never there! Our neighbors have been dealibg with a mold nightmare. Our maintenance requests get ignored. Parking is a joke. NO ONE picks up their dogs crap except me & 1 other neighbors. I regret ever signing alease!!! The pool is dirty & hot tub too. They charge you $25 extra for covered parking & $100 for a garage. Learned from another Tennant that used to be assigned. I cant wait to buy a house! We miss andrew!!!
WORST EXPERIENCE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE My wife and I were searching for a new place in the Fishers Landing/Vancouver area since it was closer to work and family. We only had a few days before our current lease was up so finding a new apartment had to be a quick process. After visiting and applying to a few place around the area, we came to the Meadows at Cascade Park. My wife and I were given a tour an apartment; the place was nothing special, just a decent apartment. The problem wasn't with the actual apartment though; it was with trying to apply to see if we would be approved actually to move in. So after the tour we went into the office and started the applications and credit/background check. We were told in a day or so we would receive a call from them (office managers) about the status of our application. We made it clear to both managers that we would continue to look for another apartment since we were uncertain where we would be accepted. For the next four days, we kept calling and waited to hear from the Meadows about the status of our application. But they kept telling us they were still waiting for the background check. So we continued to look elsewhere and eventually fell in love with Eight Towncenter Apartments and were approved to move in the next day! A few more days passed, and as were moving, my wife received a phone call from the female manager, THREATENING my wife to pay the move out/cancellation fee of $200! Even though both Meadows and Eight Towncenter are BOTH managed by GREYSTAR. We never even knew we were accepted, and even though we chose a different apartment ran by the SAME property management company, we have been forced to pay this $200 moveout/cancellation penalty. It felt like I've been scammed.The whole problem just seemed crazy to me; it was like I was forced to move in or pay this penalty. How could I search for an apartment if every time I applied to a different complex, I were obliged to pay a cancellation fee for not moving in? After months of not hearing from the managers from the Meadows, I receive a email from a Greystar employee stating that if I do not pay, the fee with be sent to collections and my renters history will affected. I never lived at the Meadows! How is this even legal?! The managers never mentioned anything about a cancellation fee and knew I may choose a different apartment complex. We were under a timeline, we told them that we would be searching for other places, yet they charged me $200 just for applying. It was never taken off the market, they didn't lose any money. But still feel that it's okay to charge people $200 for a simple application. That all I did, I applied to see if I would be accepted to live at the Meadows. I also applied to other locations and was approved but choose a different place. They never charged me for a CANCELLATION/MOVE OUT fee.Read the reviews made by people who actually lived at the Meadows at Cascade Park, check yelp and other resources. Don't fall victim like I have. #Greystar #Meadowsatcascadepark
