Resident Reviews

I'm renewing here's why...submitted by Arielle R. - |Recommended: YesI've lived here a year and I've never heard a peep from my next door neighbor, or my above neighbors. Maintenance is prompt and efficient. I love my apartment layout studio and size. The pricing is a little much, but the location is incredibly convenient. You're able to hop right onto the 202 to get to the 101 or even the 10. Every highway is accessible it seems like. Parking is no hassle for guests. The community pool and gym are well maintained a great way to meet the neighbors. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. This apartment complex also hosts multiple events such as providing free food in the front office from time to time, and having pizza nights. Overall, I've been very happy with the great qualities and lifestyle that The Lofts on Rio Salado has to offer.

It is a great idea, just needs some tinkering.submitted by Andrew M. - |Recommended: YesI would say that the front desk people are some of the best I have ever dealt with. And even at my young age I can honestly say that I have been to quite a few of the poor front desk people places. That being said, the price is understandable, however the place itself would need alot of little things to be perfect. Our dryer squeaks the entire time it dries and the carpet has a stain that looks like an oil spill. I'm sure they have alot on their hands but a little more care to the outside of the buildings would be awesome. Otherwise, this place is great for the price.
It's good.submitted by Xinyi Z. - |Recommended: Yesgood community and quite.
I think it is very poorly run submitted by Lauren B. - |Recommended: NoDefinitely not. The late fee policy is absurd. The maintenance requests take ages. Not many apartment complexes are great with this. However, when you pay a really high rent you expectations go up. I pay way too much here for very poor service.
The property is run down and old.submitted by Mark H. - |Recommended: NoThe best part about living here is nobody bothers me, I have a lot of privacy. It's easy to get anywhere I want to go no matter where it is, but everything is a good distance from here.
The property is decent, some good qualities and some not so good ones.submitted by Katherine S. - |Recommended: NoThe apartments themselves are very homey. The complex itself needs to be taken care of better, appearance wise.
Respectful, better maintenance, good office staff. submitted by Neil S. - |Recommended: YesMaintenance needs to be faster with getting requests filled.
Outstanding Valuesubmitted by Jonathon M. - |Recommended: YesI have been here for almost three months. The staff have been very helpful and responsive. Jacob in the office is absolutely top notch The management company just took over and is doing a lot of work and improvements on the property. It is a great apartment, great value for the money and a peaceful community. Some of the maintenance guys are just ok, but there is one guy who is absolutely incredible and has bent over backwards to ensure our happiness. No regrets at all moving in here
Everything is great except for the rats in building E submitted by Emily L. - |Recommended: YesI have had only good experiences here. I don't see many people around the building and I don't hear them either. Parking sucks only on the weekends. Maybe they could patrol it better then Building E has rats in the stairwell. It's really gross. Can we please get those taken care of I pay too much money a month to be experiencing rats.
Nice Place to live submitted by Aledia M. - |Recommended: YesStudios are large with walk in closets, nice size kitchen and bathroom. Pool is OK and building is secure with locked gates that require fob or code entry.
response from property -Hi Aledia, this is Jen from Customer Service. Thanks so much for the feedback, we appreciate hearing from our residents! Thank you again, Jen
Great Placesubmitted by Danielle B. - |Recommended: YesThe apartments are clean and the people in the office are quick to respond. You can hear the airplanes but we are right next to the airport so that is expected. It's a little further from ASU campus so a bit quieter but easy access to everything since the light rail is right outside. Some of the neighbors are rude but most are friendly.
