The only good thing about the maples is the location. Walls are thin, place is old. You are responsible for shovelling your own parking spot in the winter. If you want to use air conditioning you have to pay 150$, the building is incredibly hot in the summer. There's only 3 washing machines and 3 dryers. The pool is only open. For 2 months. They use the leaf blower at 8am in the fall and maintenance smokes all around the building. Building is full of crabby old people You're better off with Minto.

Moved here on November 1st 2017. The lobby area is really clean and the elevator is near and works well. The stairs have a lot of clearance which makes moving furniture great.

I hear base being played in the evening until about 9pm but other than that it's not too loud.

Today my roommate realized he has bedbugs in his room and it's very demoralizing. What's worse is that the building management is blaming us.

The unit has very old carpeting and very old kitchen but the appliances are recent enough.

I recommend this building but make sure your unit is adequate.

Brutal apartment management. No where in the lease did it say you had to pay per air conditioner you have $150. Gave rental increase above 4% to pay for windows that never ended up in my apartment anyway only the back side. Moved my stuff out of my apartment illegally on the 26th of the month and put them in a storage locker and rented my unit even though I have the place till the end of the month.

Terrible shady management that should not be trusted. My only wish is to let more people new the illegal things that they have done which are against the landlord tenant act.

The Maples has incredibly high turnover rate on supers, landlords, security companies etc. I've lived here almost a decade and I will say that the location is to die for if you are a student lucky enough to afford a place here. You are a stone's throw away from Algonquin College and College Square retail. A few closet doors were never put on hinges before I moved in and never have been. Maintenance is pretty consistent and getting something repaired is easy enough. We've had new windows put in and balconies painted recently.The building is in decent shape; the pool is too. It's clean and free of vandalism other than the odd graffiti tag. No stinky stairwells or curry hallways. The appliances are unfortunately very outdated. My kitchen and bathroom are both tiny. It's fairly safe here. I've never had to call security. I find that it's a loud place to live - Deerfield is responsible for a lot of that noise, but also you can hear through the walls easily too. Management seems to favor the elderly folks living here over the youthful when it comes to complaints. If you're a student be careful not to get caught up in the drama between tenants. Avoid the nosy, single, middle aged ladies. Keep a copy of anything you send to the office - they tend to lose things frequently. A/B building has fewer laundry machines and dryers to use, as well as no snack/drink vending machine compared to the C/D/E Building (this is where the office is). Rent increases often. I moved in paying 850$ for a 1bdrm and seven years later it will be 1022$ on Jan 1st, 2017. The main thing I'd be careful of is Paramount Property Corp. They are concerned more about how their buildings look than you. If you make the buildings look bad they will evict you.

I lived here for a year while in school. Overall, it's a good temporary home. The maintenance staff is constantly cleaning the bulding, which i appreciated. There were no strong odours in the building other than neighbours smoking in their appartments, which came through my bathroom vent every day, making it smell like smoke. So if you're not a fan of that you may not like it here. The windows are new and very clean, there is also onsite security. I will have to say the maintenance in the appartments is very poor. The kitchen appliances, cupboards, and drawers were always falling appart and took them months to come fix. The appliances are very old and the fridge was covered in rust. they just painted over everything which made things sticky in the heat of the summer. They charge you an extra 150$ if you want to put up your own air conditionner. I moved into an all inclusive appartment to get away from further expenses so it came to a suprise after i bought myself a new air conditionner to then get a notice saying i would need to pay an extra 150$. The workers at the front desk were always very nice to talk to and polite. they go through alot of front desk employees here! Other than that, there isn't much around for drinking and going out, but it's very close to the college. it's affordable but I definetly wouldn't stay here if it wasn't for it being close to the college. There are more interesting parts of the city to explore, with much better walk scores!
