Review - Canyon Reserve

7 management rating Reviewed by on

I live in one of their renovated apartments (which has a little bit higher rent) but has updated appliances, plank flooring, and a skylight if you live on the second floor. The apartment is spacious and maintenance is very responsive. Definitely in the suburbs but there are a lot of great breweries near by. About 20-25 minutes from Boulder and 20 minutes from Denver.

The apartment is very good, good size and lightening, and from a reasonable walking distance from the main Georgetown Campus. The gym and social room are great to receive friends.
Points of opportunity: maintenance response is quite slow, shut is constantly out of order, neighbors are young and party a lot (noise and weed smell is common).

I would not recommend living 25 mins away from campus

as someone who has to commute every day, with traffic, I feel like I could be losing more than 5-6 hours a week just in the car. Although sometimes that might be a mindless activity, I would not recommend it.

Very close to campus is a big plus.

4 management rating Reviewed by on

Being able to walk to school was a priority for me, so living close to campus was a major factor in deciding where to live. I love the layout of my unit and it is a perfect size for me and my cat.

The garbage/recycling system is a trash chute that gets clogged frequently, and residents keep piling their own garbage on top of it. It takes a long time for management to respond to the garbage issue, which causes the hallways to smell like garbage most of the time. The building itself also does not have a pleasant smell.

Another big problem that has been inconvenient for me especially is the in-unit single washer/dryer machine. I can only put in so much laundry and since it is one machine (not a separate washer and dryer), I can only do one load at a time. It takes hours for me to finish my laundry, which is hard when I have classes and other obligations.

Great location - livable apartments - great rent

8 management rating Reviewed by on

I moved in here my first year of medical and it has been great - dinky can get rambunctious with undergrads but this is right on the edge so it's not too bad. There's busses to get you downtown or right onto campus within a block from the apartment. The apartment doesn't have much for fancy amenities but it's always decently clean and theres fun little monthly community events (free food). We love the low price (you can get studios in the $700 range) and that it includes parking, and that we can have our cat!

Right downtown St. Paul. A few blocks from Regions Hospital and a few other health systems. Two blocks from the green line for a ~30 minute ride to campus. Next to bus lives for ~20 minute ride to HCMC. Lots of cool restaurants around and across the street from a park and a farmers market. Animals welcomed and celebrated in the building. Much less expensive than most places closer to the U.

Location

Love the location. It is two blocks from the chain of lakes. Also located right by the Greenway bike path. With such a busy schedule, it is great being so close to recreational activities.

Uptown Lake Apartments

4 management rating Reviewed by on

The location of these apartments is great. Right on the corner of Lyndale Ave S and W Lake Street (I will add, since I know that Lake Street is associated with what happened over the summer, that it is not located far enough down Lake Street where it was effected by the riots over the summer). There is underground parking if you have a car that costs $100/month. There is also a reliable bus stop right on the corner that goes straight down lyndale to downtown if you need public transit (I took it for two years, it's about a 20 min bus ride). I lived in a 3 bedroom which was 2 bedrooms and a loft. I lived up in the loft and loved it, you get your own bathroom up there. There is a small gym and courtyard. They say there is a hottub but in the 4 years I lived there is was maybe working fo 3 months one summer. The biggest negative about these apartments is definitely management. They are slow to respond and aren't very on top of their jobs. If you hassle them enough like we did, they will get things done for you. Overall it was a perfect place to live while going to school at UST.

Very good

Great staff! Great amenities! Great gym!!!!! And there's a wonderful outdoor common area on the seventh floor that overlooks the city.

Maintenance always promptly responds to maintenance issues.

The building is older, but for the most part the company has done a nice job of modernizing it!

Great if you don't need your management

4 management rating Reviewed by on

Great location and neighborhood -- right in the heart of Foggy Bottom. Immediate metro access (great for airport). Interior of the apartment is amazing; honestly one of my favorite places I've lived in that regard. Washer/dryer in unit is amazing.

Management leaves a good amount to be desired. Had insisted I pay with a traveller's check, lost it, and then would not reimburse me for the payment to cancel the check because "I can't prove that I dropped it off." Extremely rudely handled. Sometimes straight-up ignore emails and later denies doing so. They will not address concerns if you only bother them once; you need to be consistent to get them to actually take action. To their credit, they have been getting better as the term of the lease has gone on. Generally, though, maintenance is polite, if a little slow.

Gym is decent but not well-regulated. Missing weights, broken treadmills, and problems unresolved for the entirety of the time I've lived here.

Have heard rumors of pests but have not seen any myself -- might be more of a problem for lower/ground floors.

Be aware a lot of undergrads live here and walls/floors are not soundproof

All that said I'm definitely renewing

Good atmosphere for students - a lot of undergrads here. Close to campus. Gym and study room, club room with pool table and shuffle board. Nice courtyard for grilling and day drinking.

Mirada

A bit small, but the most affordable option that I found outside of UCSD graduate housing but still close to UCSD. I also was looking specifically for a 1 bedroom.. it’s much more affordable to live with others though.

The complex has a pool and easy to access laundry rooms. Most units are newly remodeled. Not very noise proof.

Great location & affordable option

I love the location of my apartment. It’s a short walk to dinky town and campus. It’s a 5 minute drive across the river to Carlson. The rent was lower than most places around it, and the square footage is much larger. I LOVE my underground parking spot, a must have for Minnesota winters. The building is older, so the kitchen and bathroom are a little outdated. There are quite a few families that live here and they allow some pets. Overall, I’ve had a very positive experience!

Expensive, but Solid

7 management rating Reviewed by on

Definitely expensive and wouldn't make sense without having a roommate. Our balcony view of Old West Austin is amazing and being so close to West 6th, Whole Foods, and all the downtown restaurants is a big plus. The Gym and Pool are on the roof and have fantastic views. Also, having a concierge on the first floor(i'd never had one before) is an awesome extra feature.

My roommates and I have thus far loved our time at Moda! The staff and management are all very friendly and open, and property perfectly negotiates affordability and quality. Within walking distance of the Perot museum, restaurants, and Klyde Warren park-- and only minutes from the Mckinney commercial district.
