I have lived in the Park at Briarcliff for about a week now. My husband and I moved here from Birmingham for a job at Emory University. You cannot beat the space for the price- this was the only 2 bedroom apartment in the area within our budget! The Emory and Marta shuttles run right out of the lakeside entrance so I take the shuttle to work every morning (we are also one of the early stops, so you always get on the shuttle before it gets crowded).
When we first moved in we have some cobweb spiders, but my husband sprayed the outside of the apartment (we are basement level) and the inside for bugs and we have yet to see any more. Saw one baby roach the first night but no more as of yet.
The apartments are old, I blew the kitchen circuit by running the coffee pot and the microwave at the same time but my husband flipped the breaker and it was all good. The walls are a little thin and we can hear our neighbors upstairs walking around but we run a fan in our master bedroom at night so that we are less likely to hear them at night.
I like the dog run, I can take my dog out there to use the bathroom and they keep bags out there for you to pick up the poop (some people ignore this, but what do you expect... some people are not as considerate as others).
The pool has been open with people out there every time I pass it, but I have never used it. I also see people using the gym, but I have not (it looks fairly small, but adequate for the amount of people I see using it).
I have not used the laundry facilities yet, but will update once I do.
Unbeatable price per square foot of space, but may take some maintenance on your part (keeping the place clean, sprayed for bugs and little odds and ends- like knowing where your breaker box is located).
