Recent Montlack Management reviews
3 years at Duke
We have lived here for 3 years. The first two years we had very few problems--the apartment was clean when we moved in, and spacious. The floors do creak, as this is an old building. The first two years we had some minor issues with management informing only one of the three tenants that they would be entering the apartment to do repairs; this was only an issue when the repairs involved taking out the baseboards in the room of a tenant who was not called. Our rent has gone up all three years. Each unit gets 2 parking spots not included in rent: garage parking for $50/month; outdoor apt parking for $40/month. The last tenant has been parking in the city lot down the block. The neighborhood is quiet, with laundry in the basement $1.25 per load washing; $1.25 for drying. Temperature is centrally controlled by management, so some rooms in the apartment will get very warm, whereas others will be colder. Overall, however, we have been comfortable living here.
Really solid place
Management is very helpful when things come up, quiet building without many problems. Very cat friendly,
Overall, this has been an excellent experience. Management has been very responsive to maintenance repairs and lets tenants know well in advance when they need to come into each apt (i.e. changing smoke detector batteries).
Positives: Other positives include proximity to Case Western Reserve, it is a bit farther from the new med school building though. Also enjoy the suburban feel.
Negatives: The apartment is on the older side and we do need maintenance more often than I'd like. Also, I think that the amount we are paying (>1100) is a bit high for the age of the apt.
Good location, responsive management
My experience has been quite nice at Crestview. There’s quite a bit of space for 2 people, and the area feels very safe with other students and some families in similar style buildings. For an old building, we really have not had any problems with the place, and management is very responsive to any concerns we have. Probably the only downside is that it is rather cramped in the garage, so my roommate and I both park in a city lot down the street and have to deal with having a car outside in the winter, but overall I’m quite pleased with what we have for this price.
Old but cheap
This is no five star establishment, but it is very spacious and a great value. Parking is an extra $50 per month for a garage spot, and 2 bedroom apartments are only guaranteed one spot. The building is old, but maintenance is pretty responsive. Not bad for student housing, but you could probably get something cheaper and newer in a different part of town.
Decent but old
The property is well maintained and maintenance is always quick to respond, though their effectiveness is variable. It is a decent, cheap apartment close to CWRU and the hospitals. It is, however, a very, very old apartment and its age shows. The floors creak, the widows break, and the radiators are always singing a death song. Without air conditioning, the heat in the summer on the top floor is suffocating. My complaints about the apartment are almost entirely related to age. Parking is also a bummer because it's expensive ($50/month), and the garage is very difficult to navigate-- you will most definitely bang up your car a time or two.
Great value, responsive management, convenient location
Great value, location, covered parking
Great value and location. 10-15 minute walk to the medical school. Safe location. COVERED parking available for 50$ extra, and totally worth it to never have to shovel snow or scrape ice off your car. Apartments have a spacious living room, dining room, and some units have renovated kitchens with granite countertops and new appliances. All kitchens come with a dishwasher and garbage disposal. The apartments are very warm and comfortable in the winter. Robyn, one of the apartment managers, is very kind and makes sure any maintenance issues are taken care of within 1 business day.
Quiet and Nice
I've had nothing but good experiences here so far (been here for about 8 months). Quiet neighborhood and responsive management. They're very good at getting back to you about requests and about notifying you of any issues or concerns.
Great for Med students at CWRU
Short walk to campus, close to other students, spacious apartment
Spacious but older apartment
The apartment is spacious, with hardwood floors throughout. Overall, everything has been maintained very well. The floors throughout the apartment are very creaky, and sometimes you can hear noise from other apartments. There is a good amount of storage. A lot of light in some rooms (living room) but not as much in some bedrooms. One of the bathrooms does not have a window and is on the small side but not unmanageable, and does not feel too cramped.
Great house with nice management
The structure of my apt is quite easy for roommates to have individual private space, even for the one rent the living room. Management is quite nice and efficient.
Love this place, quick walk to school, great management, COVERED PARKING!!!
-lots of medical students live here
-COVERED, private parking garage (50$/mo, but worth it in the winter!)
-window AC unit for $10/mo
-management is VERY responsive to repairs, concerns, etc. they respond quickly and take care of everything from clogged toilets to dead light bulbs and AC issues.
-apartments have small balconies
-laundry downstairs (unfortunately you have to pay with quarters)
-bike storage room downstairs
-some units have an updated kitchen (new appliances, granite countertops). contact them EARLY and ASK if you want one of these units.
Amazing management company
They pay for heat and are the opposite of stingy. The apartment is always warm in the winter, and anytime we have any issue, they are extremely quick to respond and address the problem.
I love my apartment. It is enormous and has a long hallway my cat, Joseph, loves to run up and down. There are hardwood floors, brand new marble counter tops, and new cabinets. My neighbors are predominantly residents and medical students. The place is quiet and clean. There is a small parking lot and a garage. I pay an extra $50/month for a garage spot.
