Not worth the money\n\nYour money would be better spent elsewhere. \n\nThe lodge is a beautiful apartment complex located directly between the University of South Florida and Busch Gardens, which means that it is completely surrounded by aggressive homeless panhandlers, payday loansharks and pawn shops. The apartment complex looks fine when you approach it from Fowler, but take a ride down Busch before judging the area. There have been many instances of vandalism and theft in the complex, and the student population can be noisy and rude. Parking is horrific. For an extra $20/month you can get a parking place in the same zip code, otherwise your luxury rent payment only assures you an epic hike to your door. The office staff dress nicely, but that is the maximum extent of their decency and professionalyism. Otherwise, they are patently unintelligent and don't care one bit about you. They are generally rude and infuriating to deal with. The maintenance personnel need to get into your house about once a month because they can't get all their routine check ups synced up. There are unmarked tow-away zones and they are strict about the three days grace policy on rent (three days, not three business days). For example, January 1, 2010 fell on a Friday and was, of course, a holiday. The first business day fell on the fourth, and paying on the first business day of that month resulted in a $30 late fee. On top of that, Daniel (locally known as ""The Oaf""), would not take my rent check unless it already contained the late fee. If you go to complain about something, they don't try to fix it - instead they only tell you that at least you only have so many months left on your lease. I've been here over six months and can't wait to leave this place for somewhere with reasonable management and better value.
