I've lived in almost ten different places in Tallahassee unfortunately. Villa Del Lago, Nole Quarters (on the back side of campus), Mystic Woods, The Beach, and privately rented houses. After 6 years here in school, and now work, Azalea Place is without a doubt the best place I have lived in Tallahassee.
The staff here is wonderful. The office staff is incredibly nice, very helpful, and go well beyond the scope of their job for the people here. One day they gave out free bagels and coffee as people were leaving for work just because. I cannot stress how great they are, I had a week to move in due to unforeseen circumstances and had to reserve an apartment with no notice as well as move in early. They cleaned the apartment anyway, and even bumped me up to a bigger and more expensive apartment without charging me extra.
I had some appliance trouble with the pre-installed stuff, they fixed it fast. All my tickets were submitted via the website and not once have they taken longer than a day to respond (and I broke my own garbage disposal twice, they STILL fixed it). Washer and dryer are NOT INCLUDED (this is handy to know) and I installed my own, and poorly because I have no tools and am not mechanically inclined and they still came out and fixed it. The service guys are really friendly and run a tight ship in terms of grounds keeping: meticulous doesn't do them justice, I see those guys out there on Sunday touching things up.
I have never had a single bug in my apartment in the last calendar year. Not one. That amazes me. Also they are pet friendly, there is a little park for dogs, and there is only a one time fee (no monthly pet fee). The apartments are insulated well, I noticed, because while my dog doesn't bark there are others I hear outside that do but I can't hear them at all in my apartment and two of the loudest dogs here are my neighbors and I've never heard them from inside once. Awesome. Also it is all young professionals and families with some students mixed in, which means no obnoxious parties at night (which you probably wouldn't hear anyway).
I just re-signed my lease because I am never living anywhere in Tallahassee that isn't right here in my awesome apartment. They are so much better than anywhere else that I have lived that it can't even be considered a competition. Sure they are a little pricey, but compared to the rip-offs you find on the other side of town what you get for the money is beyond a bargain. It is worth every dollar.
You would be crazy to even consider living anywhere else.
