Americana ArmsRate This Apartment
All i can say about this apartment is TERRIBLE. They are just so old and there is no space in kitchen or bathroom. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. Also, smells horrible in hallways and in bathrooms due to mold. Speaking of the restrooms, they are extremely small and old that give no water pressure in the showers. I would not recommend this place especially when there are better places all over town that are same price and some even cheaper than this crap hole. Also management people are really rude, on the contrary maintenance is nice and respond quickly.
I rented from fall '07 through fall '08.
Management is very rude and doesn't try to help you. Often nosey and tries to restrict comfortable living by implimenting ridiculous rules (and not following them themselves). Mail often gets lost or stolen since delivery can't get in after 5pm. Mice and spiders tend to get inside the apt. Upstairs & downstairs plumbing is connected so toilet clogs downstairs all the time (maintenence hardly ever fixes it and only one guy knows what he's doing). Free cable & internet, but internet is weak & often very unreliable. Kitchen isn't separated from the living room (only by vinyl flooring) and is about 2ft wide from the kitchen utilities. No dishwasher or garbage disposal, so you have to manually take out all the food scraps from the kitchen. Hardly any place to prepare food or to dry dishes. Halls consistently smells of what everyone else is cooking. Ceiling is very thin and you can hear people walking around! AC in the living room hardly reaches the bedroom, so it's often stuffy. Dont expect full deposit back because they're very picky and mark things even when they were there prior. Laundry room uses a card and you receive credit with your deposit (if you get anything back). Often people steals clothes if you don't sit there to watch them. Parking is hardly enforced, so even if you have a permit, it's very difficult to find available spots!
I rented from winter '06 through summer '06.
