Ive lived here for over 4 years. There are good and bad things about this place just like any other. When i first moved in the management was lazy and never got anything fixed. They have new management now and they actually fix things in a timely manner which is nice because most apartments take forever to fix anything at all. They have a year lease option which is nice and the rent doesn't go up at all if you keep renewing the year lease.A few bad things are that the area has gotten a bit "sketchy" No area in the world is safe from burglary but this place has gotten a bit bad. cars get broken into very often, mail got stolen, clothes in laundry have been stolen, items off of balconies have gone missing, and you kinda know its time to go when you see police helicopters hovering around with the light shinning down looking for suspects. It doesn't happen often but even a few times is too much for me. Also there are bedbugs here. Lots of units here have had them, its not uncommon for the managers to hear about it. But as I said before they fix problems quickly here. So if you do happen to get them they will call someone out within a few days to spray. I just think its a bit odd that they don't tell residents here about it and have everyone aware of a rising problem in the city. I guess are trying to keep it hush hush so people wont move out. At least they fix the problem fast, but still I wouldn't want to move into a complex that has had multiple bed bug problems. I plan on leaving after my lease ends. just a heads up for future residents here.Recap:Good:-rent never goes up with a year lease option-maintenance fixes problems quickly-you can pay rent online instead of using checks-apartments are a nice sizeBAD:-has had multiple bed bug outbreaks here-area has had quite a few burglary problems
For years, I had heard that the area of Shaw and Sixth in Freeno was as bad as living in Southeast Fresno. I was told it was gang controlled and drug riddled. So when I first found myself on a fixed income five years ago, I chose the cheapest apartment I could find in Clovis on Alamos and Peach, just off of Shaw. I quickly discovered that area of Clovis is indeed run by gangs, drug riddled and overrun with homeless squatters. Even in my own complex, I couldn't walk out my door without stumbling on to a drug buy in progress. After five years, my rent went up and my income went down. When I found my apartment at College Manor Apartments for $200.00 less, I decided if I could live at Alamos and Peach, I could live anywhere and I made the move. And again, I was surprised. It is quiet, my neighbors are orderly, nobody is just loitering about. The area is clean and tidy. And I feel realitivly safe. Upon moving in and discovering my oven didn't work, the management replaced my stove with a very nice one. My apartment is cute and cozy. I'd recconmend College Manor to anybody!
I lived here for awhile in college. It is a nice apartment complex, lots of trees, grass, plenty of parking for both guests and those who lived there. Cedar Commons has a pool, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a excercise room, a area to have a bar-b-que with with tables. It's quiet, lots of people, who work, attend college, etc. This apartment is within walking distance of Fresno State University, and not to far from the Save Mart Center. Each apartment has it's own patio, and it is not to far from Freeway 41 and Highway 168. It's a few miles form Clovis. I would have lived there a longtime, had my roommate not moved out and left me with all the bills. The only downside to living at Cedar Commons was that anytime anyone walked up and down the stairs ( It's a two story apartment, but not a townhouse), the walls vibrate and you can hear your neighbors walking around above you occasionally. But I think most apartments are like that. I would definetley recommend living there.
Rich,That's not true about Terri. She talks kind of slow, but that's just how she is. She's not a drug addict. She's a very nice person and too lenient, and that's why people got away with so much at Cedar Tree Apts. She's got a very big heart. She was also fooled too easily by people when they'd apply, and later would find out they weren't good people. She's not the manager anymore, but not because of anything she did wrong. The only thing that I ever found wrong about Cedar Tree is that they charge Section 8 people more rent than anyone else. But, that wasn't Terri's fault. That's what she was told to do as every other manager is told to do that. Terri felt that was unfair to section 8 people.
