Recent Camden reviews
Been a resident for two years. The apartment is expensive, however you will get what you pay for. The complex is secure with a parking lot underneath the apartment building. The place is quiet. I have had no pest problems. I have also had no maintenance issues that were not resolved in less than 24 hours (and none that were significant). There is a pool and a small gym (cardio equipment, a few leg machines, a cable station, and dumbbells - no barbell).
Camden Midtown Atlanta Pros/Cons
-Close to a grocery store
-Affordable for location and what you get
-Feels secure (though there is no direct security guard here if someone is wanting that specifically)
-Close to Grady and Midtown especially (can walk to Midtown easily)
-Includes gym and pool
-If you are in the North Ave building you may not get parking in the same building all the time (may have to park in the garage across the street)
-The pet fees are higher than other places I looked at ($500 per pet non-refundable fee and then $25 per pet monthly fee)
-Noise concerns are dependent on where your apartment is specifically located (i.e. noiser closer to restaurants/bars and overlooking pool potentially at certain hours)
Location with a little noise
Can be a little loud on the weekends, but otherwise it’s in a great location and staff are nice.
Nice Apartment in Decent Transportation Zone
Camden Lamar is a nice place. Visually, the apartments are updated with beautiful country kitchen sinks, mahogany cabinets. I have a washer/dryer in my apartment. It’s a stunning space. However, management can be a little uptight (we have a community room that’s almost never open after hours when most of us would be here), and the UPS driver is unwilling to leave boxes at my door. I’m not quite sure if its an issue of stealing, but I frequently have to go to the actual UPS store due to the concern over leaving packages outside. There are plenty of pets, which gives rise to smells around the property. There’s only one bus that stops in front of the apartment and, due to the location, the Safe Ride with Lyft is just outside of the upper limit. I don’t have a car and have found getting around on public transportation a little difficult.
Love my apartment!
It's not CLOSE to school, but it's a very easy 30 min commute from NoMa to Farragut North (including the 10 minute walk to school from Farr North). It's so worth it. Great area with lots of new restaurants and more opening up. Insanely amazing amenities. Near Chinatown.
Everything is decent quality, but for the cost it would be nice to have appliances that are a little better. The utility bill also seems inordinately high. All that being said the floodplains are nice and there's plenty of storage and this place feel like a decent value.
Great location and management
Awesome location in Midtown. Easy to get to Emory - usually takes less than 15 minutes. Management is easily accessible and maintenance is always quick.
"Great location, but almost too great a location"
The location is great: 3.7 miles from campus, and about 15 minutes to school at most. We walk everywhere via the beltline and we are one block from Ponce City Market. The place is booming (expect rent increases) but the location is so great that it attracts a lot of noise. The noises include festivals, concerts, garbage trucks, lawnmowers, weed-eaters, and leaf blowers. The music events typically obtain a permit to break the quiet hours for Atlanta (10pm-7am) so you'll hear music thumping until midnight on most weekends, and at least 10pm on Sunday nights. Because we are in the middle of a row of apartment buildings with different management, you get to hear the garbage truck, the recycling truck, the lawnmowers, the weed-eaters, and the leaf blowers 3x more than you should because they don't coordinate, nor use the same services for some reason. We have a young child, so we are more sensitive to the noises, but if you're not worried about your sleep or your child's sleep, then it would be 10 all around. Noise is a big factor and we are lucky being on highest floor and corner, so we have few neighbors to worry about too much noise around or above us. Make sure you really consider everything from where the garbage trucks pick up and everything when you look at units.
If you are looking for a quiet, safe place to live, you have found it. I have been very impressed so far with my apartment. Good closet space, high ceilings and lots of storage areas. I had a problem with my dishwasher at one point and someone was here to fix it within a day! Good management.
Okay building with some annoying negatives. Long way to parking garage. Hallways stick from trash pickup. Pool was frequently cold. Bike was stolen from designated area even with lock, teenagers from other neighborhoods would roam through. Very close to chipotle and other dining options. Movie theatre nearby as well.
Camden Fourth Ward
Location is probably the best in Atlanta, but you pay for that. We enjoyed living here for two years, and are only moving now to save money.
Love my apartment…
Love my apartment, it was clean when we moved in with fresh paint and new carpet. Very spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Nice big kitchen as well. Management is my only complaint, they are slow to respond to calls/emails but seem to get the job done if pushed. I do think they need to install a different type of gate to the parking garage, it stays open for a long time and people can just walk through it. Location is great, close to farmers market and deep ellum, but can be a little unsafe at night hence why I want more secure gates. Overall though I have few complaints and for the price and size of this apartment it is great.
Construction Annoying, but Good Spot
Camden is a good property...There are som draw backs. The construction in the area is quite annoying and bothersome. Camden is building an add on to the building so you have to deal with that every day. The amenities are great- the only draw back is that occasionally there are large parties in one of the common rooms. The apartment is nice, but the management doesn't appear to have clear lines of communication. Sometimes things fall through the cracks and you have to constantly check up on the progress of a mantinece request or a missing package. I love living here and don't want to move!
