I really enjoy my apartment here. I'm on the second floor, and I really haven't had to deal with much noise other than the occasional TV turned up a little loud and the creaky front door. I have only had a few maintenance issues since I've lived here (about 9 months), and each time I called someone was sent out within the hour.
I only have 2 issues here. For some reason, the box elder bugs are attracted to my window, and my window only. Not my slider, not ANY of the windows around, JUST mine. I had to tape my window shut, because I was killing around 10 bugs a day, on average. It sucks because the weather is just now starting to get nice, but I can't open my bedroom window. Orkin has been here, so the bugs die, but they die AFTER getting inside, so I'm still not comfortable opening my window. They should really look into searching for nests and cutting down all box elder trees, it's awful.
My only other grievance is the cost. Units do not have dishwashers, they're quite small, and there's no washer/dryer in unit, so you have to pay $3 a load on top of your rent. My rent plus Internet costs me around $650 a month, which is WAAAY more than it's worth. Besides the bugs and rent, I will be sad to leave when my lease is up.
