Its one of the best for what you pay

The facilities are top-notch -- the gym has peloton's, there is always enough parking, and the lake trail is perfect for dog owners or anyone who wants to escape the "city". The apartment themselves are dated, but nothing is broken.

The biggest negative is the road it's located on. There is rampant crime on LaSalle and that bleeds into the Belmont. Since living here we've had three armed robberies. We now have two security patrols and one sheriff who patrols at night. Each apartment comes with a security alarm system and a panic button. As a female who lives alone, the break-ins are very troubling, but as long as you request an apartment closer to the office you should be fine. The majority of the crime happens in the back since it doesn't have good lighting.

I plan to stay here for another year since rent prices have hiked up so much within the last year. It's unfortunate about the crime, but the management team is working on making the complex as safe as possible. Also, the proximity to campus cant be beat.

Homey apartment with lake

The Belmont is pretty quaint with a really beautiful lake that's a great reprieve. It's very close to campus so you can walk, or the bus stop (both Durham and Duke buses) is right out front. The apartments aren't brand new, but they're fairly nice quality inside and a lot spacier than the brand new apartment buildings (my apartment is >800 sq ft for roughly the same price as a ~400 sq ft apartment). The office is somewhat helpful but can sometimes appear apathetic. There's a lot of security, you get an alarm system and a panic button, and there are patrol cars at night. However, we still had two armed robberies (from the same two robbers) which was really disappointing and scary. It seems that they caught one of the two robbers, and the Belmont increased their security by quite a bit to help.

Expensive for a "meh" apartment

It is nothing special but pretty expensive. The only reason we live here is because we are a one-car household and my fiancée needs the car for work. I am able to walk or take the bus to get to campus. Otherwise I would not want to live here if I had a car.

Less than average. Not quite the “life of luxury” they describe on the website.

Summary:

Pros: spacious, close to Duke, easily accessible busses, free parking, nice-looking leasing office, sometimes fairly quick turnaround time with maintenance, laundry in-unit.

Cons: Bugs, new property manager (as of September 2021), John Kellum, lack of follow through on addressing a different maintenance issue and reluctant/unwilling to fully address the issue or accommodate us in the interim, not particularly fresh or clean, especially compared to friends apartments in other places in the area (i.e. spots on fridge and cabinets, cabinets old and worn looking, tape and plastic covering things, closet system is supposed to be white but has brown a lot of areas on it that come off with wet cloth, not sure if it’s dirt or perhaps spray paint because it’s a similar shade of brown as the walls.

Details:

While the apartment is spacious and has laundry in the unit, which is nice, the place doesn’t feel particularly clean. The kitchen was filled with ants when we moved in (though it was supposed to be move-in ready for us). We seen so many different types of bugs, though several rounds of pest control have helped. In my experience, when I asked for pest control to come sooner than the one scheduled day, Thursday, they weren’t willing to bring them in. So if you discover a bug issue early in the week, they make you wait. Also, I explained the lack of cleanliness and shabby nature of the clothing racks and other places in the house with tape, plastic, discoloration, etc. There have been a number of cons in my experience with this place and some weren’t handled well, which I didn’t expect based on what they advertise.

You get what you pay for

The location is close to campus (1.2miles) - 20min walk/8min bike ride.
Closest supermarket: (0.7miles) - 15min walk

The amenities are ok. You are not getting granite counters and a nice bathtub (if that is what you are looking for).
The buildings are old (compared to new developments in downtown and other areas), yet they are super decent to live.

Comfortable, Affordable Place to Live

The Belmont is located ~1 mile away from TSCHE. The location is perfect, comparable to The Lofts at Lakeview or The Flats. The rent is very affordable. Many of the appliances are older, but everything works well. The management has been very responsive (we've had our AC unit and sink replaced since moving in ~4 months ago).

Can be a little sketchy sometimes but I sacrifice that for being close to the hospital. Usually try to avoid walking alone at night but have done it plenty of times after staying late in the hospital or having to get there at 4 AM and have never had any issues. A nice selection of food/drink options just down the street!
Very convenient to the hospital and campus (walking distance) and some chain restaurants with a few local spots, but overall not a very interesting neighborhood. Very bike-able to 9th st area, less so to downtown but still only about a 20-min bike ride
Very close to campus, extremely convenient to the hospital. Many students live in the complexes nearby. Some food options, but no real "neighborhood." The main attraction is that it's as close to living on campus as you can get off campus.
Great that the neighborhood is so close to the hospital which is great for me as a student. The apartment complex is close to a bus stop / a pretty loud street which sometimes has some noise but overall no major issues.
Mostly apartments. Conveniently located to Duke and hospitals, plenty of amenities on Hillsborough Road, though if you want good food you may need to drive a bit.
Not the safest place, but the apartment complex has a garage so you don't need to walk outside at night. So close to the medical school/convenient.
safe neighborhood. We haven't had much crime and Trinity Properties has an annual safety meeting to give helpful tips on safety for the area.
Close to campus, but few grocery store and dining options in the immediate area. Biggest perk is proximity and that's really it.
