Best Apartment for the Price|Recommended: YesPala Mesa is a little bit more pricey than other apartments in the Mesa Tempe area but I think it's well worth it. Unlike the 5 other apartments I've lived in both the Tempe and Phoenix area in the past few years, this has been the best experience. The tour was accurate to the apartment that I actually moved into, everything was updated and clean. This apartment is great for those who are looking for the rennovated and modern feel for a fair price. Much better than the rundown and cheap or overpriced complexes in the surrounding area. About Staff Paying Rent When I first came by to tour I was given a very thorough tour of the community and one of their model units. Every question I had was answered in depth. After choosing to move in, they didn't mind that I called with lots of questions. The onboarding process was also very stress free. They gave a complete breakdown of the charges so I knew exactly what each move-in cost was for and there were never any hidden fees. I also love that you have the option for receiving proactive notifications about rent. The website is also very easy to use and review upcoming payments. About Maintenance Although there were some maintenance items that came up, the community was extremely prompt in coming to fix them. I submitted a maintenance request at 10pm on a Sunday and the maintenance guy came next day and quickly fixed the problem. They respond very well and don't charge you for the up keep. About the Community This is a gated community which helps keep through traffic to a minimum. The surrounding area a few streets down may not be the most sunny, so they make sure to keep security up and lights around the community working. It's also very clean. They have rules about what you can and cannot have outside your apartment and how to clean up but I really appreciate it because it helps elevate the apartments as a whole. I know many an apartment complex in the same area who don't give a care about their grounds and it just makes it seem cheap.
Pretty good |Recommended: YesIf your neighbors don't make too much noise then the apartment is definitely recommended
Only ever one real problem.|Recommended: YesLiving here was hassle free. Things were fixed as needed. Rent payment was easy and not too expensive. Noise wasn't bad. Living was spacious, not too crowded. Only problem was scorpions and the only reason we left. Unfortunately, it was out of their control there are not real effective ways to get rid of scorpions , so we left because of that, but if there was an effective way to get rid of them, we would have stayed.
My Views of Pala Mesa|Recommended: YesI have loved living here so far. Very quiet neighborhood, and the maintenance team is amazing.
Good Apartment, Frustrating Online Interactions|Recommended: YesI have lived at Pala Mesa for one year and have signed a lease for the next. I love the apartments themselves, the amenities are great, and the office staff will work with you if you meet them in the middle. The one drawback is that most online interactions have been terrible. My fiance is not even listed as a resident, so he cannot pay rent or submit work requests. We have told this to the office several times, and they keep assuring us it has been taken care of. Hopefully it gets taken care of soon. That is my one complaint.
Great staff Affordable |Recommended: YesThe staff is super friendly and always willing to help.
Great Experience|Recommended: YesI have lived here only for a few months but my experience has been pretty good. There is nothing that I could complain about.

Great Place to Live|Recommended: YesGreat service Great location Great price Great apartments grounds, can't beat the price for a complex like Pala Mesa in this location We love it here and don't want to move out
Nice, Quiet and overall Good property|Recommended: YesI like how quiet it is. I do hear footsteps or movement from time to time with my up stairs neighbors but thats norm for complexes. Brand new tile floors which are nice to walk bare foot on. Larger than most bathrooms and deeper narrow tubs. Parking is great, large spots. Cons are not enough time for a longer hot shower, turns warm to cold within 5 mins. Also can only get so hot with the turn dial, and thats as far or as hot as you can do. I moved into 2bed 2bath and the kitchen is weird, doable but the storage closets pantry suck. They have that cheap wire for the shelves and well it just sucks. Have that in the closets as well. Would like solid shelving. Also the pantry's are super narrow and just very annoying to try and house food or pots and pans. The wire shelving causes issues with hanging clothes in your closet. Alot could be improved on, appliances, carpet, ceiling fans not upgraded - with saying that - this property is landscaped and maintained very well. All apts complexes are basically the same. This one is directly at the metro which is nice. You do have to walk a couple blocks to get on or off. You do not have the availability to turn left into the main entrance of property if driving West on Main St. That can be annoying at times, but you just do a uturn a few blocks up. You are very close to 101 202 60, etc. Great location. Glad I moved here.
