Browse Reviews Of Our Apartments In Ames, IA
It has been OK but the maintenance needs work. Also there a couple employees that are not so nice and I still haven't received a fob and the gates are still open.
It's hard for me to give this place more then 2 stars when I have received consistent problems from them this year. Fines, missing items when I moved back into my unit. Last sprig our apartment flooded when they came to install our internet. I will say I love the pool and the gym is always empty when I go so my workouts are more private.
I would have had a better experience at the forums if the management was a little better. Everything from the amenities to the overall community environment is terrible. My downstair neighbors harass me and my other roommates by calling the cops on us for legitimately no reason. But they are the main ones that host parties and make the most noise. The so-called security officer and courtesy officer are useless because they continue to do nothing about the safety of its residents. Of all the student living I have experience this is by far the worst of them all. The new leasing contracts for current renewals is completely botched because they decided to add additional fees and charges without our consent. If I sign a lease anywhere I expect to pay the fees I agreed to not additional charges that will have nothing to do with me. I would never recommend living at the Forums to anyone and would advise anyone looking for apartments to either stay on campus or commute.
The resident of the Fourm is amazing. The people working there are really nice and helpful. The expenses are really low and cheap as well. And the pool is a great add on. The biggest weakness are the washer and dryers and quality of the TV sets are poor.
I like my apartment for the most part. The area around here is very peaceful and the people are very nice. The office staff is very friendly as well for the most part so I do like it here.
cool place to live that is not too far from campus and can get you to where you need to go via shuttle. The train can be a bit much but you get used to it
So far so good. I have had zero to little problems. If there is a problem and we report it to the office or maintenance they fix the issue right away. Management is always helpful.
I love my stay at the forums! I love my room, having my own bathroom and style of the apartment. Also I can’t forget about the amazing amenities! Great gym, pool and hot tub! It’s been such a great experience living here. I do have one complaint... I wish they would’ve placed me better with my roommates. All of my roomates wake up super early and I don’t. I get woken up almost daily. Which is annoying! Other than that I love it!
It is a nice facility but maintenance is slow and problems are not addressed appropriately or taken seriously. e.g. the gate has been broken for like 2-3 months and it does not seem like a priority to get it fixed.
So far, I haven't had any problems with the apartment other than the fact that there does seem to be a lot of small bugs like rolly polly's near the doors.
It has been Ok, I dont like living in building 5 tho, due to the train being directly behind. Also maintenance tends to be pretty slow. But besides that it is a decent place to live
I have really enjoyed living at the Forums for the past year. It is my first one bedroom apartment, and I am very thankful to be living in such a nice facility.
Very quiet place close to school and relaxing and of of course cheap rent. The staff is great the area is close to a bunch of shopping centers
I really appreciate the Forum, and how safe I feel in the complex. I also really enjoy the amenities such as the computer lab, the gym, the pool, and the volleyball courts.
So far I have enjoyed living here a lot, it is 100 times better than living in the dorms on campus. One major reason for that is having my own room and bathroom, another is how amazing my roommates are!
Apartment spaces are a little small and over priced (paying 650 for a 4 bedroom). Nice living community and covered parking. The staff is nice as well but the apartment could use some renovation especially for the price we pay.
Overall great apartment complex, nice building, rooms, and furniture. But maintenance can take a long time and be prepared for going over on your utilities significantly. But overall if you are looking for a cheap place to live in the Denton area consider the forums.
The first year I lived here, I enjoyed it very much. Now that I live here with randoms it's okay. I mean I still get what I was wanting but it's definitely the friends that make this experience the best.
Disorganized office staff. Incentives promised at lease signing took months to arrive and the staff didn't seem to care. Apartment was messy at move in, with rotting food in the fridge, trash on the floor, broken blinds, broken door, and the front door wouldn't unlock, so I was stuck outside with all of my things on move-in day until a guy bought a new lock and changed it.
Going good yet the neighbors that I have are very noisy sometimes. I cant study. But still a good place to live. Would definitely recommend to future people.
The management here is great. They will help you with anything. Also the maintenance people are the best. They are friendly and get the job done quickly to get you up and running again. Would definitely recommend this place.
Everything has been Pretty good so far. My only large grievance would be how the utility bill fluctuates inconsistently. Other than that no other complaints.
They changed up parking mid lease and I never knew. Now my friends car is towed and I’m unhappy. They make you pay a $56 startup fee fort their third party utilities people. They took an extra month to give us our incentive
My experience living here at the forums have been enjoyable.. The clubhouse is awesome . I love doing homework in the computer room aswell the pool and workout room is great
I really like the environment here. everyone Is really nice and the apartment is exactly how I expected it to be. the location is nice, close to drive to school but also a short bus ride.
