I have no idea what the bad reviewers were talking about. I moved in here 15 months ago, expecting to only stay a couple of months but I soon found that I had no reason to move. I won't be here forever but I'm in no hurry to leave. I havent seen all the apartments here but I've lived in two of them and have seen the inside of a few others. I've never had a problem parking and the lots are well lit...any more and people would complain about too much light at night. Ive never seen drunks (drinking maybe but not "Drunks) around the pool or anywhere else and rarely are there children. My linens are changed weekly and are always clean and fresh. The housekeepers and all the staff are friendly and are not allowed to touch anything that belongs to a tenant, therefore they might have to clean around your clutter and personal items. This is not a four or five star hotel but it is well maintained and clean (assuming you do your part). The only complaint I agree with is being able to hear noise that an upstairs neighbor makes. I've heard the same kinds of noises in Holiday Inn Express or Hampton Inn...it is what it is. I enjoy using the Rush fitness Center, good TV and Internet reception, housekeeping services, sparkling clean pool and waterfall, grilling shelter, on site laundry, helpful staff, peaceful, safe, quiet surroundings. Some people look for things to complain about and if you look hard enough you will always find something.
