|Recommended: YesReally Good Apartment — To me, I would score a 8 out of 10.
|Recommended: YesAmazing location for UW students — I love that the location is super close to state street. So convenient
|Recommended: YesGood — room is old but other than room everything is good
|Recommended: Yes. — .
|Recommended: NoDisappointed moving conditions — When I first entered the door, a choking smell of smoke rushed into my nose. Dust and stains visible to the naked eye on the desktop, visible stains in the refrigerator, yellow under the toilet lid, clothes left here by who knows who inside the cupboard, and dirt falling on the floor - is this what you call 100 Ready at Move In, Guaranteed The most terrible thing is that the chandelier is filled with the corpses of mosquitos and other insects. I am so disappointed.
|Recommended: YesReview — There were damages but i took images. The cleanliness was not good. There were crumbs and damage in quite a few places.
|Recommended: YesThe noise from my neighbors are low, but I can hear shouting from the street at night. — Quite nice
|Recommended: YesNice — nice
|Recommended: YesNot bad — A bit expensive for what you are paying for but overall it is quite nice
|Recommended: YesExcellent — I love the actual apartment and the area around it. Many places on a walking distance. Quiet and clean.
|Recommended: YesConvenient and helpful. Has some dated aspects within apt — The lobby and hallway on my floor, at least is very clean. Sometimes the hallway and lobby smell like cigarettes, but I can't figure out if that's what is really it. Music from neighbors can only be heard in the hallway, which doesn't bother me, but it's also never in an apt next to mine. The cupboards, toilet, and bathroom sink are dated, and so is the microwave that comes with the apartment. The water pressure in the bathroom is a bit low, as it takes 10 seconds for the toilet to flush, but I have yet to complain about that to the building. AC's are dated but work fine and add character. The building looks like a soviet block and the porch reflects this, but you get used to it. It's not a big deal. I'm listing a lot of negatives, but it is a really nice building with nice neighbors, and I feel safe as well. All in all, 4 5, I'd say.
|Recommended: YesIt's great — It's nice because you're close to state street and the capital building. You also get a nice view of the city if you're up in the higher apartments on the left side of the building.
|Recommended: YesIts not bad — each unit can be cozy if you decorate it. it's also located at a very convenient location.
|Recommended: NoDisappointed, Perhaps I was expecting too much — Everything was great until the move-in. Your kind e-mails and satisfaction guarantee probably just made me expect too much. It has not been even a month since I first moved in, but I have and had to deal with so many issues so far. Just to name a few missing bed upon move-in, broken screens, dead kitchen outlets, ... and now I am dealing with an electricity bill that seems to have mostly come from the A C that was left on unattended for 2 weeks before I actually moved in. I chose Steve Brown mainly because it's a big, well-known management in Madison, hoping that I would receive your customer-focused services. However, what I'm feeling is that the management is just too busy taking care of so many residents living in their properties that you constantly lack details and do not care about individual circumstances of issues. I hope the current not-so-good service improves over time, and wish my current issues regarding the electricity bill gets resolved soon.
|Recommended: YesReally nice, but maintenance fixes are slow. — The studio unit is nice and spacious, but a bit costly especially since the leases are yearly. There's a nice gym in the resident lounge on the ground floor, but it's missing a few things like a bench and pull-up bar. The maintenance is quite slow though. I submitted my Resident Check In Inspection almost 2 weeks ago with pictures and descriptions of everything that needed fixing and no one has come by yet. The Internet connection here is also a little slow and inconsistent, cutting in and out from time to time.
