Good for First/Second Year Med Students

I am a first year med student and decided to live here for the next school year. I have a studio and live by myself. My unit faces east so I get sunlight in the morning which I appreciate.

Some of the big pros that made me decide to live here another year: the management (Barbara is the current manager and has been for a while) is very responsive to maintenance requests and generally the property is maintained well. Maintenance will install/remove your window AC unit for no charge. There is just the right amount of space for one person in a studio and there is a lot of storage: I have a walk-in closet, another coat closet, several drawers and shelves in the dining area, and a storage locker in the basement where I keep boxes etc. It takes 15-20 minutes depending on direction to walk to the med school and about 10 minutes to get to class (door-to-door) if I drive (considering parking and walking to/from my car). A lot of my friends/classmates live near or even in this apartment too, which makes socializing convenient. I study at my apartment very often (it's my preferred study space) and there are usually not many, if any, distractions. The radiators keep the apartment very comfortable when the temperature outside is cold. Cats are allowed although there is a monthly fee associated with them I believe.

Some drawbacks: the kitchen does not have much counter space, so if you cook a lot you do feel a little cramped. I do have a fold-up table that I use to "supplement" my counter surface area. Sometimes when the temperature is warm but drops rapidly the radiators don't turn on right away and it feels cold for several hours, but this is not too often. You can hear your upstairs neighbor walking around - it's not terrible but you most likely will notice it. One of my next door neighbors every now and then can distract me with their music or conversation which makes me think that that wall is thin while my other next door neighbor I can barely hear ever. When my refrigerator "ramps up" to cool things down (which I notice because of its associated hum/whirring noise, the lights in my apartment dim for a couple seconds and sometimes the monitor I use with my notebook even blacks out for a couple seconds although everything goes back to normal after. I haven't had any serious issues as a result of this although I use surge protectors to be safe. Laundry machines cost about $2/cycle and dryer costs about $2.50/cycle. It's not super cheap to live here although I think it's a fair value. My additional monthly expenses are $50 for a garage parking spot (there are roughly a dozen total as far as I can tell; open lot spots are $35 I think), $45 for Spectrum internet (other internet provider isn't much cheaper if at all), $8-35 for gas (heating causes it to increase in winter), $14-26 for electricity, $13 for renters' insurance (required for the lease). So even for the most expensive months (the winter months), I pay less than $930/month total. Considering the pros, I think that this is a fair value especially relative to other apartments' cost/offerings in the area. Walking home from campus is a bit of a bear, especially in the summer, since that direction is uphill. I usually get pretty sweaty by the time I'm home and have to cool off in front of my AC unit. No dishwasher.

Other general characteristics: radiators are used to heat the apartment. They make occasional noise which is typical of radiators. Hardwood floors except tile in kitchen and bathroom. Windows are a little hard to open and are slightly drafty although this is typical of an apartment built 100 years ago. No central AC so I use a window AC unit in the warmer months (I hear of others using fans or just opening their windows). My unit has a ceiling fan that I use a lot in the summer. My bathtub/shower is a little narrow although I have gotten used to it and my toilet runs on the short height/small diameter side although I have essentially gotten used to it too

Great apartment, great location

This apartment has been really great for my wife and me. The living conditions are great, and although the building is definitely on the older side, the management does a good job of fixing/replacing things that need to be attended to. Also a great location in relation to Little Italy and University Circle--which are both walkable.

The management was the deciding factor for choosing Lewis Manor. On top of that, the apartments feel very secure.

good for CWRU med

The building is close to the school (~15 min walk) in a good area. The apartments tend to be on the larger side compared to most other places and management responds quickly. However, the building is old and the walls are very thin. There are frequent noise issues and emergency repairs are made often with little to no warning. Steam radiators for heat aren't really able to be adjusted, but the building is kept on the warm side with fairly cheap gas bills.

Affordable old building in popular area

Overall it is a very affordable building in a popular area. However it's main issue is that is old. Would recommend living there if you want an affordable option that is close to campus.

Pros:
Cheap and affordable
Good location 15 minutes from campus, 10 minutes from Coventry, popular area for other students
Large apartments
On-premise laundry
24 hour gym with limited selection (dumbbells w/ bench, elliptical, treadmill, home gym)
Gated outdoor parking with limited covered spaces

Cons:
Old building (old floors, old and loud heating, no central AC)
Occasional pest problem (mice)
Small kitchens with limited counterspace

Clean building close to campus

The apartment is extremely close to campus, only a 15 minute walk even in poor weather. Landlady keeps the apartment building extremely clean, and quite. Many residents are graduate students or doctors doing their residency, so building is also kept quiet and student friendly. Also, is extremely close to Little Italy.

Great Management and Within Walking Distance

Lewis Manor is within walking distance of CaseMed. The management is very responsive and helpful with all issues. The studio apartment is spacious enough for one person and 2 cats with a very large closet for storage. The floors are all hardwood except tile in the bathroom and kitchen. There is an uncovered parking lot that requires a key to get in and out of.

Lewis Manor Review

Lewis Manor is a nice place to live, about a 15-20 minute walk (or a 5 minute bike ride downhill) to the CWRU medical campus. I've been impressed by the management's response to service requests; we had our ceilings painted and tub re-finished. Maintenance is friendly and meets expectations. The street is pretty quiet - I live on the ground floor and haven't had problems with noise while studying. Compared to friend's apartments, mine is quite spacious for the rent. The apartment has tons of storage space and lots of interesting nooks and crannies.

Things to consider: Like many apartment in the are it's an older building. Steam heated (radiators), laundry facility not attached to units, drafty windows. The counter space in our kitchen wasn't great for cooking all the time, so I bought a microwave cart to add surface

Awesome apartment with great management

This is a great apartment building. The apartments have plenty of space, as a guy I don't know what to do with 4 closets. It's super quiet (I'm currently doing my Step 1 studying here). It's ~15 minutes from school, a nice walk in the morning. There is parking for $20 (covered for $40), utilities and internet aren't included. The management is super friendly and they get stuff done. If you have any issues with your apartment, they usually send someone over that day or the next. Although they don't have central A/C, they'll install your unit for you. They also have a small gym (nothing amazing) but it's nice to have if you're not going to campus for the day. I'm super happy with my setup and there's a bunch of other medical students here who would agree.
