2011-02-16 00:49:43 Anybody have any feedback on this place? My partner and I are looking at two-bedrooms for the fall. Comments on layout, management, noise, etc? —MeggoWaffle

I lived at Stratford for a year. I loved the location but there were a few drawbacks. It's freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer. Our apartment would often be 100 degrees in the summer and the central air did nothing. The landlords don't want to fix stuff so don't hold your breath if you're waiting on them. They can also be a bit abrasive. Despite all this I loved the price and the location. I'd definitely consider moving back if I needed to. —serafina

Pros: - Management is easy to get a hold of - Management is very responsive to problems - Very cheap - Location is very close to school. - Actually has central A/C and heating though not very efficient. Takes forever to cool down or heat up anything and quite expensive. - Free street parking right outside. - Move in on the 28th of August instead of 1st of September - Very quiet (though this depends on the tenants)
Cons: - Place is old - Outside is poorly maintained - Laundry room is dirty as hell - Move out on the 27th of August instead of 31st of August - The central A/C and heating sucks as mentioned before
Overall, I liked it here. —SebastianNg
2011-09-05 04:46:27 Does the rent include any utilities or other amenities? —DavisAugs
2013-08-26 14:42:22 This place is cold at winter and hot at summer, especially when you are in second floor. And you can hear the neighbors very clearly at night. The women manager talks like you own her a lot of money and she is very persist in what she wants you to do. There is nothing you can negotiate with her. Her husband is nicer than her. Not recommend living there. —MichelGong
2015-09-11 18:33:20 I just tried to call the owner/manager of this apartment complex to screen a tenant for a property that I represent and the ill-spoken creep (manager/owner) hung up on me twice. It is really a shame, as I think the tenant is probably a good candidate. From the other accounts on this site, it sounds like he is a slumlord. —skdky
