RENT: Don't get fooled with the rent they offer for new residents. They literally increased rent by 150$ every year for the 3 years I stayed there.

UTILITIES: NOTHING IS INCLUDED. Just the building. Add 50$ to the RENT per Month for water, trash removal. Add to this, you have to pay 50$ just to get a key access to the Indoor pool & gym.

HEAT: The apartments are very old probably from 1950s. I have paid 400+$ easily every month during the 4-5 months of WINTER. It sucks to pay more than one-third of the rent as your electricity bill

MAINTENANCE: Maintenance & service is usually good. But, there are times when you get blamed for things you are not responsible, like MOLD on the ceiling. It took 1 month with multiple visits to office to get this fixed in my case. Also, my apartment leaked with water on the walls, ceiling (a part of) that was the main reason for Mold formation.

OTHERS: The ground & sidewalks are good. In-door pool was more than half the time closed during my stay.

VERDICT: STAY AWAY!!!... Live here only if you like to spend lot of money (close to 1500$) for a 1 bed room apartment with just OK-ish building & maintenance, & with tons of additional money each month. There are various options near Manchester, Windsor, Enfield & close by with reasonable rent & features.

Rivers Bend is extremely convenient right off rte 91. It is a very big complex, over 88 acres. The exteriors are brick townhouses, there is lots of parking outside units, a nice playground, and a short walk to the river where there are picnic tables. But, the insides need some attention, especially for the price of rental. Some units need new carpet, and fresh paint on walls and ceilings, updated appliances, etc. The Fitness club was a mess. The dressing room was filthy. The indoor pool was one that I would not swim in. It appeared to be lacking chemicals of some sort....For the price, I'd go elsewhere.
