This place is infested with bed bugs. All my friends who live there got it from their dirty rooms. My friend moved in here and a week after got infested with bed bugs. It was gross. They treated it but blamed them. The buildings are dirty, everything is old and broken down in the apartments. Beware!

I lived here back in the 1980s. I woke up one morning to find a stranger on my 3rd floor balcony of my 16 Owens Street apartment who said he was there to work on the building and was sent by management. I checked with management the next day only to find that no such workers were working on the building and none should have been on my balcony. This whole complex has a SEVERE cockroach problem as do most places in Hartford. I have spoken to other people who live or have lived in Hartford and they have all said that cockroaches are a major problem with anyone living in that city. It is just the way of life there. I was mugged 4 times while in Hartford. Twice, I was held up for my car in separate "car jackings". In all of the attempts, luckily, I was able to get away unharmed. Save your sanity and your money and find a better, cleaner, safer, and less expensive place outside of the Hartford area in which to live.

Recently moved out after three years here. Building was very well maintained. Leasing office staff was courteous and professional. I called to report ice on the stairs one winter and within 10 minutes there was someone there removing it. No complaints. Great deal for the price.

Not all of Hartford have pest infestation. But this place does. Everyone in 18 denison have German cockroaches... Not because everyone is nasty but because Clemens place never want to fix or do anything about it. Then they threaten ppl to pay them. They also blame the ppl of being nasty. The whole building have mold and water leakage. Playground is trash.the Building elevator, on sisson near corner store still not fix since early 2000's. Windows are old and broken since 90's.

Greetings. I just graduated from uHart with a Masters in music from the Hartt School. While attending the school I rented a 1-bedroom apartment at 29 Denison St. The facilities are nice, the shuttle to campus was convenient, and the Maintenance and Security staffs were very helpful and professional. However, I cannot say the same for the Administration. They didn't listen to my concerns as a resident, but maybe they'll listen to this review. Clemens Place advertises a quiet hours policy that they do not enforce. My downstairs neighbor kept me awake at any and all hours of the day and night with a stereo system blasting movies. I complained to as many representatives from management as I could for almost two years and was assured that enough reports from Security would lead to eviction, however, only a few notifications were sent to this tenant. The resident lived in a subsidized apartment and my guess is that Clemens Place did not want to lose this easy money. I realize they are a business, but it's these empty promises that are my biggest disappointment. I made two mistakes: moving to Clemens Place and staying for a second year. Don't be like me. You're better than that.

I have lived in Clemens Place for over a year and the staff is fantastic, the facilities are great and the convenience of being so centrally located to the highway, stores, and restaurants shouldn't be taken for granted. I must say I've also had no issues with maintenance employees, they're always on time and take my complaints seriously.

I cant even begin to describe how terrible this place is. Your car WILL be vandalized in their parking lots, make sure youvadd that to your monthly rent. Anything you wish not to get stolen should never stay in the car. The apartments arent nearly as nice as the pictures show. Iv had over 1200 in damages and stolen property in the last 8 months, half the damages coming from their own tenants they allow theur kids to ride bikes and play baseball in the lot. The property owner couldnt care less about you or any problems you have. The office people are generally nice but moat are mean. They even lost all of my rental paperwork and i had to go back in twice! I would wish this place on my worst enemy and i hope someone finds a way to show them what they are doing is not ok. I invite you to contact me persoanlly and i will tell you everything they have done and wronged me doing. This place is aweful. DONT SIGN ... RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN

I moved into Clemens Place in 2012. Admittedly, I picked the place because it was one of the few places that showed up online in Hartford, I was tired of trying to find an apartment in Hartford and I was delirious from having just taken the bar exam. I just renewed my lease for the third time. The neighborhood is pretty good. The West End is probably the best neighborhood in Hartford and the safest after Downtown. Bars, a small grocery store, pharmacy, good restaurants, fast food and my bank are within walking distance. U Conn Law School and Elizabeth Park are also nearby. I work downtown and regularly hop on the bus which stops right on Farmington Avenue and is pretty reliable (for a bus). The rent is reasonable considering heat and hot water, off street parking and a fitness center are included. The fitness center is one of the best I've seen as far as options (it isn't new and shiny, but it's functional). Multiple cardio machines, a full set of dumbbells and two racks with barbells (squat rack, multiple benches, etc.). Not a whole lot of weight machines if you prefer those, but I don't use them. I have seen some strange things going on in the parking lot (twice I've seen a car with a missing front wheel), but am honestly unsure of what the story is with that. I have called the super a few times and have always gotten a prompt response -- even when I was causing the problem (e.g., I didn't realize that I needed to turn on a switch to work the dishwashing machine). I haven't seen any rodents. Maybe they come out after my bedtime? Ha! I have recommended the place. Generally, it meets my needs and I'd say it's a good value for someone who wants one stop shopping.
