Apartment was infested with roaches upon move in. I had found a graveyard of roach bodies behind the fridge about a week into my residency here. Kept finding roaches throughout the entire house, then decided to move the fridge and couldn't believe what I saw. It was as if the apartment hadn't even been cleaned before I moved in because I even found food on the floor which the roaches were feeding off. Management is very attentive at first but as my stay progressed I was ignored even after being promised a new apartment in the building. Flat out ignored until I decided to break the lease on the premise of the place being infested.

I lived here for a brief amount of time. The unit had cockroaches upon move in. Management did NOT do an inspection of the unit, it was not painted properly, and it was overall just extremely dirty. The apartment if fumigated, but roaches still remained. Management told me that they would fumigate again before somebody would take over the unit, but I am pretty sure somebody moved in immediately after I did.

It's a great neighbourhood but honestly the roaches gave me so much anxiety that I moved elsewhere in Centretown The elevator didn't work properly and moving in/out was a total nightmare. It's cheap, but it's cheap for a reason.

Pros:
Good location
Quiet people
maintenance WHEN ASKED is done quickly.
Cheap and all inclusive
Large balcony and decent sized apartment

Cons:
Apartment was disgusting upon move in! They didn't even check it prior to my arrival even when I requested it be cleaned three times (because the old tenant was dirty so I knew).
Could be more clean... apartment located by the garbage Shute and its smells into the apartment!!!!
Maintenance not that great - ex. fresh paint and walls need to be done, carpets are dirty and door handles in entrance are black.
Key to enter building does not work well.
They have parking but don't tell people this...
Fumigating building for cockroaches (though I have not personally seen any...)
1 year waiting for storage...
