response from property -Thank you for the kind words, Samuel!
It's nice, nothing more and nothing lesssubmitted by Troy L. - |Recommended: YesPositives - Good Location - Friendly Staff - Good amenities When they work or are open - Underground parking is a plus - Was able to get a free storage unit If you park in front of one - Apartment is a great size and has a nice layout. Plenty of natural light Negatives - 50 of the time i go to use the hot tub it's too dirty or isn't in service - The gym has been closed for undisclosed reasons or for remodeling a large portion of my time here - Elevator takes forever - Stairwells are clean but not aesthetically pleasing - Water fountains and what not are cool and add a nice ambiance, but are normally dirty and or not working - You never know when your packages are delivered as they get dropped at the front desk without notification - Dryer never dries clothes in one cycle - Dishwasher is cheap - The garbage disposal is worthless. got clogged from egg shells and soft food remains - I have to go over 7 speed bumps every time i come in or leave the complex. It's ANNOYING not to mention very harsh on the vehicle. - Get used to the sound of jet engines

Enjoy Living at the Lofts at Rio Saladosubmitted by Kevin B. - |Recommended: YesOverall, I have been pleased being a resident of The Lofts at Rio Salado. The repainting of the buildings has really brightened up the place and I am glad to see that the hallways have been cleaned, light fixtures are working, and the spaces are kept clean. I really like the apartment in which I live, however there were a number of things that needed to be repaired within the first few weeks of moving in and the place was not very clean. The blemishes on the tile, bathroom sink, and other places are tolerable however, it would have been nicer if the apartment was in better condition. The monthly rent is a healthy amount and my expectations are higher for this reason. I would recommend to others to live here and I have to numerous people that I know. I love living in Tempe and this location is close to my work, freeways, downtown Tempe, Scottsdale, the airport, etc. All of these make it a huge plus for choosing to live here.
response from property -Hi Kevin, Thanks so much for the feedback, we appreciate hearing from our residents! I am glad to hear you like calling your community home. I will be sure to pass along your kind words to the team I will also speak with maintenance about the concerns of your move in condition, If you would like to stop by to discuses your concerns we would love to take time to meet with you. ! Thanks again! – Lofts at Rio Salado
Review for my first 3 monthssubmitted by Isaiah M. - |Recommended: YesIts nice, but spider webs and bugs in light fixtures in throughout the hallways give it that not so clean apartments. My identified items in the apartment have not been addressed. I have a cabinet near the refrigerator that is impossible to use due to layout. Living near an airport is quite noisy. Minor things from keeping it from perfect. I marked yes that I would recommend it to a friend, but I would let them know about these minor things above.
response from property -Hi Isaiah, Thank you so much for sharing these items with us. Our community is currently in the middle of being power-washed and painted. We are also working on converting our hallway lighting. If you notice these items are still present after the paint, we definitely want to hear about it! The team will be reaching out to you to ensure everything in your home is working properly, as we want you to be enjoying your home to the fullest extent! Take Care, The Lofts team

Good for the Pricesubmitted by Braxton P. - |Recommended: YesI like the location and the price of the units. If it was any more expensive, close to or on par with other higher end apartments I would pay the extra a little more to get that value. The finishes and amenities are on par with most Class B apartments
response from property -Thank you for the positive feedback and your recommendation, Braxton!

Median rated apartmentssubmitted by Charles H. - |Recommended: YesGated community is ok. They change policy without giving you too much of a lead notice. So you can sometimes be fined for not doing something if your out of town for a week cause you can sometimes get less then a week to do something. Some bills can be made to be paid automatically and sometimes bills that are suppose to be automatic dont get paid automatically. There is a lack of clarity and consistency in billing and prior notices. You can hear your upstairs neighbor so well that the suction noise made by a refrigerator can be heard like you were standing next to the fridge in your upstairs neighbors house. The sound of planes flying can create sleepless nights for the first few months you start here. pests are kept at a minimum. New management does try to make things right. Maintenance sometimes takes multiple work orders to fix the same problem. Parking underground uses dedicated spots. I don't drive here so i cannot comment on availability. This area is located near many office buildings so jobs are plentiful. Supermarkets and food stores not so much. You'll have to take the light rail into town to get restaurants and food stores are a bit of a hike. Apartments buildings have more then one of a number Lets say Room 222. Room 222 will exist in all of the buildings and the building letters are not clearly visible which causes problems with some delivery services when delivering at night since some building signs are not straightforward. I often get delivery people delivering items to my room in the wrong building. It would be nice if the signs were more understandable and there was more then one building letter on the buildings that is basically invisible during the night. There is washer in dryers in some units, which you'll want since i have not seen a public laundry mat business anywhere. The apartments room size of the studios are generous. Apartment prices are reasonable only in certain seasons. You will pay a higher price then what is listed since utilities are not included in the rental price.
