Recent Southern Management Corporation reviews
Great location and value for studio
Front desk if helpful but maintenance is overpriced, not easily accessible and difficult to work with. Lack of communication on construction/maintenance dates and times make it difficult for residences to plan schedule. Also have continuously asked to wear shoe covers in my unit but never seems to oblige.
Claridge is very clean and also has a discount for AU grad students during application process
Would’ve moved after a year if not for pandemic. Too far out from campus and not accommodating for larger dogs
Summit Hills is a big complex of apartment buildings lined up along a hill that is at the intersection of 16th Street and East West. It is literally a block up from the DC/MD border, so it is VERY close to DC. There is a metro station in walking distance and downtown silver spring is a short walk or drive away. The complex supports graduate and professional school students with waived security deposit and automatic approval (no credit check run). Addionally, the aparrtment units all come with utilities included and a rent that is at least 200 dollars cheaper than nearby apartments. I was surprised with how spacious the apartment is - all the rooms have ample space! The only downside is the bathroom is small - but I'm not in there s much as my bedroom or living room, so the compromise is something I can live with. Huge windows throughout the apartment let in a lot of light and make it feel more spacious and bright. I was really happy choosing this place and its only 12 -20min drive (without and with traffic) from Howard! Not a bad choice and the rent is cheap but the quality isn't compromised. I don't have to worry about pests or other issues other complexes that are cheap tend to have. The building I'm in has regular cleaning staff that maintains the grounds and I have not have any issues. The walls are also VERY THICK! I live with my sister in a 2bedroom/1bath unit and we can't hear each other even in seperate rooms. We have to be in the same room to talk/hear each other. Its great for studying because I will study in my room or the living room, while she is listening to music or watching TV in her room. I don't hear her at all!
Also, if you do have a pet dog or cat, the apartment is pet friendly! I think cat rent is 40 dollars and dogs is 50, but double check that!
Good for its price
Summit Hills is good for what you pay for. It is close to downtown Silver Spring but has a lot of room unlike more expensive and smaller apartments in DC. Management is responsive but maintenance is slow and not very helpful. The building is old and they repaint over a lot of things but as long as you are proactive in calling when things need repair, I think it should be fine.
I have no complaints at the moment. Generally I am very satisfied with my stay. The gym we are supposed to have access to is closed because of reconstruction and COVID. They haven’t made any accommodations for that. Hallways occasionally smell like weed but it never smells in my apartment.
Close to downtown and quiet
I have enjoyed living at Summit Hills for 2 years now. It is quiet to study and close to a lot downtown silver spring.
Lived here since my M1 year-- no real complaints. Not too far from school, rent is cheaper than living in DC... more space + free parking and utilities included
It’s nothing fancy but I share it with two students and we’ve lived there all three years. Plenty of living room space and it’s comfortable. The other residents are mainly young people and families, which is really nice. I’ve loved living here and would recommend it to anyone who wants to save money, and doesn’t need the luxury amenities other places offer.
Perfect living and study space
Very good experience. The staff is very responsive if things go wrong. The building is old but they replace the carpet, bathtub, and toilet seat/covers when you move in so it feels new. They also repaint the walls. My roommate had an issue with the ceiling of her bathroom leaking, but they came in and fixed it within 2 weeks. Other than that, they are very responsive to repair requests, mostly within a few days.
Cheaper than places around, nothing is closer to the hospital
- closest to the hospital
- larger than most apartments around
- no washing machine (some apartments don’t have dishwasher- look for renovated)
- 120 dollars parking (same price as hospital parking, but it’s right next to you) - safe as the area is heavily patrolled by hospital police
- you can hear your neighbors
- basement apartments have almost no street light
- if you delay payment, they sent your case to court
- very good air conditioning
- residents are mostly from the hospital, so it is quiet
- probably the best for your money, if you want larger space
- very safe as the area patrolled by hospital police
Convenient location on MD/DC border
Moved in August 2017 and the community continues to make constant improvements.
10/10 rating for Twin Towers Apartments
I love living here and it's a great location for everything I need. I am within a 5-minute walking distance from the Silver Spring Metro and to the outdoor mall with plenty of food options. There's a Whole Foods and Giant less than 10 minutes when walking. My apartment is spacious, the staff is friendly and the tenants keep shared spaces clean.
Daniel's Run Apartment
Great apartment. Not that far from campus.
I love this complex. It has a pool, basketball court, small soccer field, and exercise room. There is access to a park with larger sports fields and access to a seven-mile paved trail very close by. The complex is very diverse, which is really nice. There are a lot of families with young kids here, which I think makes it feel homey and also means it is pretty quiet at night. The walls are thick enough to where I generally don't hear noise from outside my apartment, anyway. I've never felt unsafe living here, and I've had packages delivered that have sat in front of my door for days when I've been away, so I think that speaks to safety/security as well. Maintenance is quick to address any issues. I haven't seen any evidence of pests, and the common areas are kept clean. It is a short walk to a Ride On bus stop and a Metrobus stop. Laundry is in the basement of my building which is nice. The bathroom and kitchen are nice, with an electric stove and oven and a nice shower/tub. The only kind of weird thing is that management controls when you can switch from A/C to heat in the fall and from heat to A/C in the spring, but that doesn't really bother me. Otherwise, I have full control over the temperature in my apartment, and utilities are covered by the rent as well so it's nice not having to deal with paying those separately. Can't recommend this place enough, really!
