DO NOT RENT HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! The management staff is incredibly incompetent and doesn't seem to care about any problems that their tenants have. When I first moved in, it took them over 2 months to even give me a mail key. It has now been over 6 months since I've requested that they fix my refrigerator and I've contacted them between 5-10 times and I they have told me at least 5 times that they have sent in work orders - of course they still have NOT fixed the problem - or even contacted me ONCE to follow up about it. The management staff is extremely unprofessional and doesn't seem to care about their tenants. The elevator often smells like urine and the floor of the elevator (there is only one) is consistently littered with trash and other unknown liquids. The elevator is breaking or is shut down frequently. About a month ago they shut down the elevator for two weeks because there was apparently human blood in the elevator and the stairwell (which they also shut down but only for a day). There was police caution tape and a biohazard team removing the blood from the stairwell and elevator. Also, you will find beer cans littering the parking garage every day - which at some places is only 5'5" high and has caused me to bang my head multiple times (or walk hunched over). The parking garage has two gates, but only one closes, meaning that the parking garage is completely insecure. The entire ceiling of the parking garage is covered with RUSTED pipes that dripped onto my car and damaged the hood of my vehicle (see photos). Additionally, while walking through the hallways you will consistently notice a variety of unpleasant odors that change on a daily basis. Their wall-mounted AC units do not work well and I'm constantly dripping with sweat. My AC unit leaks and makes loud scratching sounds that indicate its going to break very soon. They have absolutely no amenities and while my unit was not in terrible condition, it was certainly not up to par with what I had expected. There were numerous problems - some of which they did fix - but the rest they completely ignored. I was also once trapped outside on my balcony on the fourth floor (which has a prison-like cage surrounding it and screams with ear-shattering highway noise) because the door to my balcony broke. I didn't lock myself out (as there is no lock), the door actually broke and became non-functional. I was therefore stranded out there at 4 AM. Fortunately, I had my cell phone and I called their maintenance line and they told me my only option was to smash open the window and break into my own apartment. Luckily I had a chair that I used to smash through the glass window of my door, otherwise I would have been stranded outside in the middle of the night on a concrete patio surrounded by prison-like caging. In the process I injured my hand, and I had to move my bed out in the living room because of all the pieces of glass that covered the floor. I cleaned the glass on the inside and I asked them to help with that or to at least clean the glass on the outside - but I still to this day find pieces of glass on my patio. My main door is also exhibiting issues - I have to wiggle the handle and close and open and then re-close the door multiple times to actually have the door close fully. I've told them about this multiple times as well, but I don't expect them to ever do anything about it. When I first moved in I spoke to approximately 4-5 tenants about their opinions on living at Solana Vista. Every single person gave extremely negative views and advised me to "get out as soon as possible," which is what they did and I am going to do myself. Even though I only heard negative things after moving in, I still tried my best and maintained a positive attitude, but now I can't wait to leave. Save yourself the agony and DO NOT EVER LIVE at SOLANA VISTA!

When i moved in here 2 years ago the rent was $800 for a 1 bedroom. Now it is at $995. The parking is horrible. Cars get towed all the time for parking even an inch over the line. The spots are so narrow it's almost impossible not to. The elevator has a mind of it's own. They shut off the water a lot. The building is old and has lead paint and asbestos. I've had to schedule maintenance at least 5 times since living here. They replaced our dishwasher with another crappy dishwasher, fixed my bathroom sink twice, fixed a clogged sink in the bathroom that turned out to be an issue in multiple apartments all at once, among many other things. The cabinet door under my bathroom sink completely fell off for no reason. There have been fights in the hallway and people playing loud music. We've had the cops show up at our door late at night saying someone called them and it wasn't even us. The other day I woke up to a man yelling nonsense outside my window at 4 a.m. They mow the "lawn" for at least 3 hours every Monday morning so if you work nights good luck sleeping through that. They left a note on our door saying we had to empty all of our kitchen cabinets, drawers, closets, etc so they could spray for roaches and the guy showed up and told us we didn't even need to do any of that. I could go on and on.

I felt I was getting what I was paying for when I was paying $800 a month but now that the rent has gone up so much, this is really just a bad place to live.

the worst.. dont let the photos fool you, bad neighborhood, VERY BAD MANAGEMENT, and old buildings. Moved out as soon as my lease was up and that was in April of 2010. JUST BARELY recieved my deposit check through the mail the end of March 2011 with the check dated MAY 2010. I cant even deposit it so when I try to call management, with no surprise.. no answer. called every day and left messages but so far no one has tried to contact me. THE WORST

So many bad things can be said about Solana vista apartments. Management is horrible they hire just about anyone i lived there for a year and we went through 3 different managers and each time you would say to your self it can't get any worst than this. Location is bad it's very ghetto don't be fooled by the pictures, they broke into my truck even though it was underground parking my truck was 1 of several other cars that same night. They had 1 security guard watching both buildings. Also 4 times since we lived there we had to leave our apartment from 10am until 4pm because they had to bomb our whole floor for roach infestation they would do a floor each day in a 4 story building which didn't make any sense. There are constant water shut offs for a couple hours usually in the morning when i was about to attend school or work. If your looking for an apartment for good value this isn't the place for the hassle drive west down University and look around Florida St for better deals.
