Last summer I rented a storage space from them, great location, nice people, but when I came back in October to dig my stuff out I found some black widows that decided to have a party in one of my boxes that I had put in the unit. Yikes! Also, the key that they gave me opened not only my storage unit, but also about four or five others. Apparently they had a few "semi master" keys and I wound up with one. Aside from the poisonous spiders and random keys, everything else was fine... -AbbyLawson

There aren't enought washer/dryer units (3 in each of 4 laundry buildings). But our biggest complain is that we expected it to be a quiet, family oriented complex. In our unit, we were surrounded by singles who so loud at all hours of the day and night that we eventually moved out. —JanelleAlvstadMattson

Because we are subletting from a friend over the summer, they are letting us stay in the same apartment during the 2006-2007 school year. We have a one bedroom and pay $755/month which was cheaper than most places in Davis we found. Although there is central heating, there is no central air, only a huge wall unit in the living room. However, this wall unit is powerful and effective and cools the living room down quickly. The palce is in good condition, though the kitchen appliances such as the stove and dishwasher are old (but still work). The noise level is pretty quiet from where we live. We occassionally hear kids playing on the playgrounds but the late nights and early mornings are very quiet. The location is also perfect for students. Overall, this is the best place we have lived in Davis so far. —LindseyKrabbenhoft

I like it very much (at the very beginning I didn't, since I wanted an apt with some central air-conditioning but later on I got used to it). Russell park is really a safe, cheap and decent place to live near the campus for our students. Their management is very nice and professional. They always respond to the maintenance requests in a timely manner. A highly recommended place to live. —Siamese
