+1 Star for: Office staffs = Awesome! Facility (gym, pool, etc.) = Awesome! Building/room quality = Awesome! Shuttle = Awesome! Distance to UA = close _______________________________________ They fixed the morning drop off schedule so that it worked for both parties. I'm very-extremely happy about this update. Thank you. Awesome staffs, and complex at a great price. Close to UA too. Just pay for your rent on time, be respectful and you'll love it~ If you forget rent once, there's a $75 late charge... but they ALWAYS give you a 2 weeks heads up notice from monthly fliers. Plan ahead!

What makes me give this place such a low rating are the "small" things that are done to squeeze every dime possible out of the resident which are legal but absolutely unethical. For example, the late fee for truant monthly payments is $70 for the first day. That is outrageously high. Every single other apartment complex I've ever lived in (and I've lived in many) charge no more than $35, and even then, they will sometimes look the other way, especially for people who have lived there for a long time (as was my case). On top of that, and they don't tell you unless you read really hard in the fine print of the contract, they also take away the student/preferred employer discount during late fees, adding another hunk of change, making the late fee in reality $100 or more. There is absolutely no reason for the apartment to charge such things; one day late does NOT cause them $70+ of inconvenience and it is hardly any more of a deterrent at that point. In fact, with this kind of policy, how is it in the interest of the staff to have their customers pay on time? For those living paycheck to paycheck, this is just preying on the weak, whether they intend to or not. Also, they claim that they cannot accept checks after the first three days of the month for paying rent, which makes no damned sense. The online payment system charges a $12 "convenience fee" for every transaction, which is absolutely ludicrous. When I talked with the manager about this stuff (and not in an aggressive manner), she used the defense of "well, it is fair" and proceeded to talk down to me as if I were a child. Sure it is fair. But just because something is fair doesn't make it ethical. This is less important, but they close the main community lounge house area thing, to those with key cards mind you, at 4:30PM, which also houses the only place to put money on the laundry card they give you, so good luck getting homework done in peace or laundry done unless it is the weekend or you cram a butt-load of money on your card ahead of time. Not to mention, those laundry cards are scams anyway (though they claim it is for security...). The dryers are also really, really terrible. You are better off hanging your clothes to dry. A $10 rack from Target will quickly pay itself off. Also, the construction of the doors, sliding closet doors, cabinetry, etc. are hideously poor, at least in the one-bedroom apartment I was in. The plumbing frequently sputters, even without any announced maintenance going on. Also, one month, they replaced the toilets and faucets with more "efficient" models, meaning the faucets hardly give any pressure anymore, making washing dishes a pain. Oh, and the dishwashers are ancient and crap. The plumbing fixtures are cheap, as are the electrical fixtures which most cannot hold onto a plug to save its life. The toilets are ok though. The carpets are extraordinarily bad, even for a place this cheap; routine vacuuming tears it up. The apartment is not necessarily unsafe, at least as of 2014. Though, it is not in the safest of areas; be aware that bikes are always stolen regardless of the efforts of the security staff there (who are nice and competent... but it really isn't at all hard to steal a quick-release wheel or even a poorly secured bike if you think about it). Basically, there are (admittedly, a very few) better choices out there than this place for the price. It is worth paying $20 extra a month to go to a place that treats their residents like the loyal customers (and people with lives) they are as opposed to another money-making opportunity. I can't believe I agreed to renew my lease... at least this makes me feel a bit better.

I have been living in Sandstone with my girlfriend for the past year and we have loved it. The apartment itself was well kept and maintenance were courteous and prompt with the very minor issues we called them for. The grounds are well kept, and the facilities are fantastic. It is true that the complex is gated and that this does not tend to stop people (presumably homeless) looking for bottles and cans, however we have had no issues with crime, or heard of any for that matter. In addition, do not let the wider area put you off, Sandstone is a like a little oasis. From the other reviews I can only assume that Sandstone has undergone somewhat of a renovation in operations during the past few years, so keep it up! We are sad to be leaving but would highly recommend it to anyone! Thank you

Terrible Apartment complex! do not let the gate fool you or the nice look. I had my car stolen out of this "gated" community and no one noticed a thing also the management was very bad to say the least. They definitely try to charge you an arm and a leg when you move out. I had my apartment cleaned and looked perfect and they tried to charge me like $200 for various fees. Lets just say i did not pay that. They also are always maintaining the place and you can hear the leaf blower at all hours of the day so hopefully you like to get up early.

I lived there for several years, but am really dissatisfied with the way I have been treated, the manager could care less about any problem that you have she won't make the time to call you instead she hides behind her front office staff that can't do a thing to address the issue. I do not recommend moving here. The apartment complex looks nice from the outside but is falling apart inside all they do it cover it up so they can charge you in the end for things that as a renter should not have to pay for. Also make sure you document when you make a maintenance report because they don't.

I've been living here for a few years now and love it. There's the usual apartment silliness to deal with but it's honestly few and far between. It's quiet, the amenities are awesome (indoor racquetball court, pool, pool table, basketball/tennis court, 24 hour laundry, gates etc) and the staff are awesome people. I was in a 2nd floor, one bedroom for the first bit of my time here, but have recently moved into a 1st floor unit. Apart from the occasional parties at the clubhouse or upstairs it's really quiet. The late night security guard doesn't hurt either if it needs to get handled. I'm going to be here for a while yet (school's not quite done) and I'm going to be happy for the rest of my time here.

It was my first place after going to college. It looked good at first but I soon realized that it was not student friendly. there are loud parties constantly that normally do not end well. And the the crime in the area is bad. Its not good when homeless people follow you to your apartment asking for money and to borrow a cell phone. security is a joke obviously. the worst is when you try to move out. I paid to have my carpet cleaned like they advised on the contract. yet when I moved out they said I owed them more money because my spotless carpet was not cleaned to their standards and accused me of stealing their oven racks, light bulbs, and air filters. why the hell would I want any of that crap. In my opinion the business poorly ran.

As the last person posted, the gates and the nice look are kind of a sham. I leave for work at 630 every morning and you can see homeless people waiting at the gate, wandering around and rummaging through the dumpsters. They have security walk around at night but where are they to stop the random people walking around the complex? They boast about a clubhouse/gym, but it's only open while the office is open. Those that work during the day, this is a useless amenity. The laundry rooms require a special laundry card for all but two washer/dryers, and one of the two coin dryers doesn't dry your clothes properly. You can only get/reload your laundry card in the clubhouse and that gets locked up at 5pm. Even when they are in the office past that they won't open it for you. The apartments look nice on first glance but the stuff is cheap, everything is falling apart and I've only been here for 3 months. The smoke alarm goes off when you boil water. The neighbors upstairs stomped on their floor and the white light bulb cover on the ceiling fan fell out and shattered. It's just too expensive for an illusion of safety and quality. I definitely will not be renewing my lease here. For the most part the residents are friendly, but in the common areas like the pool and the basketball courts, people are starting to party now that its getting warmer. I'm all for people having a good time, but they tell you when you first move in that theres no glass/alcohol allowed in the pool area. But every weekend now there's a huge group of people being loud, playing loud rap music, and they have tons of liquor all around the pool area, screaming cuss words. I have a 3 year old that stays with me on the weekends and now I have to worry about the stuff he's being exposed to at my home because security doesn't do their job and maintain a safe neighborhood. This place really is a sham.
