Recent Westdale reviews
Super close to the city and freeway!
It's great to live in an old warehouse type building turned into apartments. It has high ceilings, exposed brick, & somewhat of an industrial feel. Management has been awesome. The walls are super thin (hopefully you have thoughtful neighbors), if the people above you spill something -- it can leak through the floor, & many residents don't clean up after their dogs mess (leaving it in the hall). Living in an apartment is never perfect, but it is a community and not everyone thinks of it like that. Overall, its a good place for a short while, but I don't plan on extending my lease.
Great apartment (with a few downsides)
I love the apartment itself and the view is amazing. I do wish we had windows we could open. Also, they allow a lot of dogs and the dogs pee all over the hallway and the sidewalk right outside. It smells! Also they have an old elevator on our side of the building which is very slow and breaks down often. Horrible office hours (10-5:30, which is when most people work).
Aged apartments in a quiet, safe area.
The apartments are cozy and in a safe area. The maintenance crew are quick to respond to requests. They have re-purposed a tennis court to serve as a dog park. The laundry facilities are well lit. There is an HEB within walking distance and several bus stops around the corner.
Awesome industrial feel, great neighborhood
I've lived in two of the Deep Ellum Lofts buildings, and they really are great spaces and in a sweet location.
The only problem is management - once you've moved in they do not care about you. At all. Misty was borderline hostile in the background of a phone call I had with their office.
Luckily I am handy so I fix my own maintenance issues, because Westdale seems dedicated to maintaining their properties in the cheapest way possible.
Great starter/temp apartment with a few major setbacks
I was lucky for an outside perimeter unit with windows - I would HATE living on the inside. The walls are very thin, you can hear EVERYTHING. Windows do not open - gets a little smelly/stuffy. Hallways smell like dog piss. Other than that I love it.
Nice place to live
The Players Club is a centrally located complex that feels very safe. It could use some updating though as the apartments are older. The laundry room is not the greatest so I would suggest washing your clothes elsewhere. Sometimes it is hard to get use of the machines at the gym as it is not very large.
Overpriced, but what can you do?
The apt is fine for a low key person like me. Could always use less carpet, nicer mgmt, and cheaper rent. The maintenance issues that I have had maybe have not been dealt with a sense of urgency, but luckily, I have not had any real emergencies.
Okay for leaving if you don't have great expectation. Its an old apartment so nothing great about it. The only advantage is the shuttle service of UT which covers the apartment. This is a good option for those who are working in UT.
Safety wise it is good and one can go for jog in late evening. HEB is very close which save lot of time in groceries.
Quiet and affordable
Westdale Parke provides great benefits for the price you pay. Swimming pool, tennis court and a gym are a plus. Bus stops are located just in front of the complex and the staff is amazing: very helpful and efficient.
The main problem is the traffic during rush hours if you need to get to UT campus or downtown.
The Westdale Parke is a great deal considering the high prices at Austin area. Even though the location is a little bit too far away from the central area, the Far West neighborhood has a good infrastructure, groceries and restaurants nearby. The management is great and maintenance was fast every time I needed. Highly recommended.
Wonderful apartment complex!
Westdale Pointe has one of the best management teams I've encountered so far! Victoria is very nice and helped to sort things out for us so that we could have a really smooth move in. The environment here is quiet and perfect for graduate students like me. And the residents here are kind enough to offer help to us when we were moving in.
Older building, but solid value
Hunters Chase is a decent apartment for the price. The floorplans are pretty large but the building itself is pretty old and some of the units can be pretty rundown.
Nice Little Apartment
This apartment is at a peaceful neighbourhood and we chose here as it is a good place for graduate students, rather than the the apartments near campus and frats. Maintenance is quick and the staff at the office is really helpful and sweet. Neighbours are friendly too.
Quiet and spacious, but old and outdated
The rent is cheap, but the apartment and amenities need some major renovation. Lots of insects because of trees everywhere. We have covered parking, but you have to to pay more for it. Otherwise, you can park in the outside area. There is lots of shade from all the trees so it is quiet cool in the summer on the balcony.
