POSITIVES:

The bed bug policy seems to be working. They do check
the units every few months. Tenants must cooperate.
Less poison is used since it is caught early.

Other positive is that rent is only 660 for suite and a parking
spot. Good price.


NEGATIVES:

The place is noisy from all sorts of ambient sounds. Walls
are very thin. Bring earplugs. It could be easily solved if
management would soundproof one room per unit...the
bedrooms being ideal. Then there would be a "refuge" from
that rumbly old elevator.

Other negative is that half the people smoke. Halls always
have a bit of smoke smell. Not good. Even the janitor smokes
out back. Whenever I get my car, there he is puffing away.
Not good. Need zero tolerance on smoking. Since rent
controls don't apply in this Manitoba Housing subsidized
building, they should just increase the rent for all smoking
tenants. With 6 months notice and a rent increase of 200 bucks,
I am sure the smokers would want to leave. They can say they
the need the cash for all the smoking related expenses

Got locked into a lease and now we see why so cheap.

Should have listened to kids and checked this online stuff. Locked in at more than 575 and not that happy. I will keep it short. The place STINKS of smoke like some disgusting dreadful bar from the sixties. All sorts of smoke including cigar cigarettes and street drugs. Also stinks from cooking but that is food so that is different. The doors are not properly sealed. Even the caretaker smokes on the property. Clearly Brydges Property Management and its employees are not leading by example. The worst thing happened when we did our laundry. We had to go all the way down to the basement to do it and THAT WAS BAAAAAAD!
The basement hallway is entirely unacceptable in the present smoky state. Our clothes stank of smoke AFTER we brought it back up. And the caretaker is no help. On top of it all, we are not permitted to use the washroom in the basement. It is locked all the time. I need to use my adult diapers just so I can stay near the laundry room. If this is not changed, we will look for another seniors residence.

Lots of problems. I agree with the general tone of all
the other reviews.For me, I was troubled to find out that
the Residential Tenancies Branch annual rent control guidelines do not apply to this place. Keystone manor falls under an explicit
exemption. It is a non-profit complex with subsidized units with funding coming from Manitoba housing and the CMHC among other programs. This means rent controls don't apply and they increase your rent as much as they want so long as they give you enough notice. Not good news.

This place still has bed bug problems...

1. SUPER BED BUG STRAIN. After 10 years of half measures, they now have a superstrain of bedbugs which can withstand multiple types of pesticides. Darn it,,,,they shower in the stuff and keep on going.

2. HOLLOW WALLS... This complex like all Manitoba Housing projects are built real cheap and have shortcuts like hollow walls. The bed bugs can hide in there for a long time and are protected from any poisons used against them.

3. BED BUGS CAN LIVE FOR UP TO 3 YEARS WITHOUT A BLOOD MEAL. It's true...they can go for a long time without food and still come out afte a few years..

For these reasons, the bed bug problem is still very real and Brydges can't do anything about it
