Now called Metro West...HORRIBLE...HORRIBLE place. I moved here from a luxury apartment community in Arizona. I was unfamiliar with the area and was apartment hunting online and applied after the virtual tour...WARNING the online pictures and listing are a lie. Indoor pool and hot tub does not exist. Clubhouse and fitness center is only open during office hours. The apartments are nothing like the pictures and management will promise you anything to get you to sign the lease...ALL LIES...I had to buy four window ac units because central air does not work...I had to go buy a stove and refrigerator because the appliances did not work properly. Every time someone does laundry my basement floods. ALL repairs are half-ass or you wait for months for things to be fixed.

Horrible place to live!!!! Now known as METRO WEST. We moved here from Michigan and have never had a problem with any apartment places until we moved here. They make you sign a paper saying you're not bringing bugs into the place but yet they move you and your children into cockroach invested apartments! You never get anything fixed right (or at all). We have called the health department about the cockroaches. If you talk to the people at the office they'll say "where I'm from we just call them roaches" they act like it's not their problem and expect you to live in these horrible conditions. What makes me really mad is that they knew we have kids and still didn't care to move young CHILDREN into this environment. I hate this place and can't wait to get the hell out of here!!!!!

They also have a level II sex offender wormaintain head of construction named Tom Edvin. He was twice convicted once for molesting his child and then for rape.

DO NOT MOVE HERE!!! Bedbugs and Roaches live here to... I lived here for about a year we started getting roaches and bedbugs maintance wouldn't show up to spray for neither. We would tell the landlord Sue about the issue she would say that we are on a list. We wouldn't hear anything at all. Also the area is bad with drugs and crime. I don't know how many times we had to all the police because there was either a fist fight or someone looking in windows.

My daughter was being talked to my a guy a few doors down from us about personal things. I called the cops to file a report. The next day told Sue what happen she said she has more important things to do.

They have a bad rating on the bbb website check it out it's a rating of "F" go search them for yourself on there.

They don't fix things in a timely manner, there are roaches, bedbugs and black mold. You can call everyday or every week, even speak with management, but that doesn't mean the bugs or any problems you have will be fixed. Do not waste your money.

This place is horrible.... They have recently changed the name to Metro-West..... It was formally Oakbrook Manor. Dont be fooled by the name change its the same company with the same horrible management. I lived there but moved out in March 2012 i kept getting harrased by that Victor saying i owed a balance when I did not. I paid my rent early every month. My money was never posted correct and they never completed any of my work orders. When I called the office Xavier would pick up and be rude to me for asking any questions. Im so happy for being out of that miserable property, DO NOT MOVE TO WINGATES, OAKBROOK MANOR, OR THE NEW METRO-WEST......... They will rob you, harrass you and you will probly get bet bugs and Roaches................ Its a NASTY PLACE

In response to mike, how were you paying your rent each month? they do not accept cash so you should have some sort of receipt to prove you were paying? money order? check? Bedbugs and roaches? As far as I know the bugs and roaches were let go back in March 2012. Supposedly a member of mgmt was sleeping with a janitor and another worker was stealing. Thats what the ladies in the neighborhood watch tell me. Everyone was pleasant when I went in to drop off my rent check today and its like that all the time. I recently went in to let them know about a leak and it was fixed in a timely manner. I even received a phone call from sarah asking me if it had been fixed. thats great customer service in my opinion. I guess when people dont pay rent or do things they aren't supposed to its easier to make excuses and blame others instead of facing the consequences.

Thank you for the positive review, Oakbrook Manor is in a constant state of change as we try to change our community for the better. BTW the fake person in the office is the person who brought to cookie idea to the company. Great ideas from a great Marketing Director.
.

I'd like to start out saying that my husband and I moved from another state because of financial issues so since these apartments offered a great deal we decided, what the hell? We'll try it. WORST IDEA EVER. They look for anyway possible to screw you over. I ended up giving birth to our daughter very early she was 3.5lbs at birth and a little over 4lbs when we brought her home. We also have two other children. Because of her heart condition and several other problems we needed A/C. It was broken for two months and we had to threaten the apartment with escrow before it was fixed properly. This was during June and July at 100+ degrees 90% of the time. We moved in on a special of $99 dollars the first month and then the second month free. Well amazingly after we threatened to put our money in escrow that all changed, along with the paperwork. We had a ledger in June stating that we owed $0 only water. By August they changed it showing we were delinquent and illegally gave us a three day notice to leave with our three children under the age of 4.
Along with the A/C being broken despite a letter of poor health from my daughter's neonatal developmental specialist this is a list of the problems in the apartment.
1. Black Mold that has been painted over in the basement that they tried to pass off as mildew.
2. Roaches!!!!
3. Bedbugs!!!!!
4. A swarm of ground hornets nestled in the wall of our apartment that soon moved to the basement.
5. a disgusting carpet!!!!
6. And our neighbor had two lovely pitbulls
7. Don't forget our car window being smashed in by our pot smoking drug dealer to the left.

And finally a big shout out to SUE the apartment manager who, when asked to provide a statement that their office had made an error with our June rent, yelled in my face that I wasn't "getting anything that wasn't on the computer" after admitting to changing the same ledger that day!

Oakbrook Manor never changes the amount owed. Every Resident has the RIGHT to come in and request a copy of their ledger at any time. Oakbrook Manor is in a constant state of change as we try to change our community for the better. We are now offering NEWLY remodeled units and are excited about the change we are experiencing.

This place gets a bad rap. It has been a rough area in the past but they are doing a lot to clean up the reputation and you can tell. The apartments are very large for the price and the staff are all friendly and accomodating. I moved in a month and a half ago and have very few complaints. The issues I have had were addressed in a reasonable amount of time and everyone was courteous. My leasing agent was also Shelly. She was very nice and was helpful to me. If you are looking to move to the area give Oakbrook a chance.

I moved to Oakbrook 3 months ago and so far I love it. I get to have my pool table in my apartment and I got to paint. I really dig the fact they open so long i can stop in all the time to pay my rent it rocks. I get to go swimming inside even if it rains. These peeps giving bad reviews probly got evicted thats why they complaining if you have a problem go talk to the guy from NY he will help you out. If you real with them they will be real with you. I say oakbrook Manor has come along way dont listen to the peeps on here they just salty..... I live at Oakbrook on Franshire and I love it. I even had my cousins move here.

DO NOT MOVE HERE!!! LONG POST BUT WELL WORTH READING IF YOURE CONSIDERING IT!!!

My roomate & I moved here in April '10 and signed a 14 month lease. We did a walk through with staff and noted everything wrong before moving in and was told maintenance would come fix it all. They never did. We were accused by the gas company when we moved in of illegally turning it on and charged a $90 investigation fee in which management of Oakbrook said theyd take care of it. They never did and just found out it went to collections! The kitchen cabinets were completely rotted out. Plywood was painted and screwed over where drawers were missing. We were told numerous times that they were building us a whole new set of cabinets, which was a total lie. The ac wasnt working, which they lied and said it worked great when we moved in. After living 3 months in a 95 degree townhome, calling almost every day about it, repairmen coming to look at it twice and telling the office they fixed it but really didnt, walking in the office every other day to complain, getting non stop excuses of why it wasnt fixed (aka - "Itll be fixed this week", "It says its fixed in the computer already", "Nobody informed us it needed to be fixed", "$15k worth of new ac units were stolen so itll be a few days before we can get you a new one", ect....) we finally put our rent in ESCROW!

Besides those things there was black mold growing behind the cabinets. The tub kept getting plugged up so they had to take down the cabinets numerous times to get to the piping in the wall so we saw the mold. Parts of the floor was rotting and soft. The heat wasnt working in the winter and took them a few weeks to finally come fix it. The heating/ac unit in the basement was old as dirt and sounded like it was seriously going to blow up. The whole living room floor shook when it was on. The only way to turn it off was shutting off the breaker. The thermostat was crap and you could only turn it from heat to ac. It wouldnt let you set high, low, fan, or turn off at certain degrees. We also had a nice swarm of 1000's of termites that filled our tub and was all over the living/dining room floors. Hence the rotting cabinets and soft bowing floors I found out. Theres a gap in the front door so when it rains it floods into the living room. Plus a ton of smaller issues.

We were broke into 2 times within 4 months through the back door window while we were at work, all our valuables stolen, and the place ransacked. Almost 2 months after our last break in there is still plywood over the window. They havent came to replace it yet. Real safe huh! We had bought a double deadbolt that required a key to unlock if from inside & out but that didnt stop them. Theyd break some of the window, leave for a bit, come back to break more, leave again until the whole window and frame was busted out. Each time they came back our nice neighbor called the cops but the cops did absolutely NOTHING!!! They didnt even go around back to investigate our neighbor said. Both break ins some of our other neighbors saw who did it and where they carried our stuff but when we called the detectives about it they never answered and never called us back. They just DONT CARE. Ohh and theres always cops in the neighborhood for something by the way. Drug deals, fights, overdoses, break-ins, ect. Like I said, they just done care though. Show up because they have to.

Needless to say, we finally went to court the beginning of May '11 to fight for our rent that had been in escrow for the last 10 months and to also get out of our lease. We were awarded 6 months of it back which was a nice lump sum and was also let out of our lease early.

Moral of the story - DONT MOVE HERE!!! And also, if you ever have any problems with your landlord repairing anything after numerous attempts of asking them, go downtown and put your rent in escrow!!

I moved to oakbrook back in Febof 2010, I just renewed with them and I have not had any problems. I live over on Franshire and I have seen so many changes going on and i like what i see. the Indoor pool is great and i live being able to workout and not having to pay for a seperate gym memberships. I use to live on the eastside and I have never seen an apartment community that has such fierce amenities. Im excited about the casino being built across the street even though its a big dirt hole right now. I have a 2 bedroom with a patio and i have space for everything. Parking is never an issue and my neighbors are very nice. Oakbrook is not Dublin but everytime I go into the Ofiice I feel super important and they never leave me hanging. Since i moved here i have had only one problem and that was my AC. They came and fixed it right away and since then No problems. I pay $499 for three floors with 1.5 bathrooms. I honestly feel lucky I found this place and it fits in my budget. Oakbrook is not new and they did have some problems, but im seeing good reasons why people should come be my neighbor. I say good job..... Your resident on Franshire Court East.

Mia H. I would love for you to come back to the property and take another look. Im sure you will be pleasently suprised.

I just signed my third 14 month lease with Oakbrook Manor, so I have many things to say... I live in a two bedroom townhouse with a basement, with my boyfriend and two children. I pay only $499 a month which is cheap compared to most other apartment complexes. This complex has down falls just like any other complex but they are striving to make it better. I do agree the office has been through a lot of staff and managers. But if you do your research the complex has had the same regional manager since I moved in. And he is in the office Monday thru Thursday. He is coordinating many events for this coming summer. No this is not condo downtown living, there are a lot of children playing outside after school, people do play their music loud but it isn't by any means the ghetto. The most common thing is children fighting or arguing but that leads back to their parents.
Maintenance doesn't always show up in adequate time but things do get fixed, every time I have had a problem I personally go to the office and let them know what is going on and it gets fixed in 2-5 days depending on the problem. And yes many of the maintenance workers speak spanish but I have never had a problem with them understanding what I want fixed. If something isn't getting fixed call back until it does. As for bugs you can't sit around and see them and wait weeks or months to call and expect it to be fixed immediatly. I found water bugs in my basement, I called and the following week they came out sprayed and the following week came again, and I haven't had a problem since.
Abandoned apartments- There are many abandoned apartments and the office is working on getting them renovated, they can't just snap their fingers and be finished with renovations. Also it's hard to keep up with renovations when half the apartment complex doesn't pay rent, they just live here for free until they get evicted.
In closing you get what you pay for if your planning on moving here don't expect to be moving into condo living or a ritzy neighborhood bc your not. My best advice is treat this as a community and not just where you live. Know your neighbors, pay attention to what's going on around you. The complex is constantly being patrolled by security and sheriffs which I think is why there isn't a lot of crime. After living here for almost three years I've seen a lot of changes in this complex, you can't blame the complex for the people who live here.

I just signed my third 14 month lease with Oakbrook Manor, so I have many things to say... I live in a two bedroom townhouse with a basement, with my boyfriend and two children. I pay only $499 a month which is cheap compared to most other apartment complexes. This complex has down falls just like any other complex but they are striving to make it better. I do agree the office has been through a lot of staff and managers. But if you do your research the complex has had the same regional manager since I moved in.

No this is not condo downtown living, there are a lot of children playing outside after school, people do play their music loud but it isn't by any means the ghetto.

THIS PLACE IS SO NASTY!!!! Do NOT MOVE HERE, ALL THE MANAGEMENT IS A JOKE, AND I MEAN ALL OF THEM, THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH MANAGEMENT LIKE ROACHES AND YES I MEAN THE SAME ROACHES THAT RUN ALL OVER YOUR WALLS AND COUNTERS IN THESE APARTMENTS. THE VIOLENCE AND DRUGS IS UNBELIVEABLE, I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR OVER A YEAR AND AM GETTING READY TO MOVE IN A WEEK AND CANT WAIT TO GET OUT OF ME LEASE. I WOULD SAY THAT 99.9 PERCENT OF APARTMENTS HERE ARE DOPE HOUSES OR ABANDONED APARTMENTS. I HAVE ALSO WALKED THROUGH HERE AND SEEN DEAD MICE AND DEAD GROUNDHOGS ON THE GROUND. THE GROUND HOGS ARE HORRIBLE OUT HERE, AND THERE IS SO MUCH TRASH EVERYWHERE, EVERYTIME I COME OUT OF MY APARTMENT ALL I CAN SEE IS TRASH EVERYWHERE, MAINTANCE IS A JOKE, I WENT OVER 5 MONTHS WITH NO AC BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY HAD TO ORDER A NEW UNIT, THEN AFTER WAITING THEY JUST WENT TO ONE OF THERE ABANDONED APTS AND BROUGHT IT. THIS PLACE IS A JOKE DONT LET KNOW ONE FOOL YOU EXSPECIALLY THERE NEW MANAGER SUE, OR ANY OF THE MANAGEMENT OR EMPLOYEES, THIS PLACE IS SICK

Oakbrook Manor, is a neighborhood in transition. We are actively seeking better ways to enhance the neighborhood.

We are involved with tons of Community organizations and sponser a weekly tuitoring center on site for our residents. The community is in the up and coming casion district and the staff is always here to help. Come take another look at Oakbrook Manor, im sure you will be pleasently suprised.

This might be one of the biggest mistakes I've ever made. I had high hopes for this complex and it completely let me down. You walk in to the model and they show you the unit and talk it up, of course no complex is going to be complete heaven like the staff wants you to think, I completely understand how marketing works.

However, this place fails in every single way possible.

My apartment was robbed by local teenagers 2 weeks after I moved in, to the day. The door had been kicked in and the doorframe split in the process. Maintenance rather then replacing the split doorframe just nailed it together in one place. It is completely unsafe. I called to discuss how I could get out of the lease and they told me I'd have to pay 2 months rent and a $600 fee up front and I would forfeit the deposit. Unfortunately I didn't have $1600 on hand so I had to stay.

My dishwasher legitimately makes dishes more dirty than hen they were put in. I find out later its because a piece is not aligned properly so it was bumping up against the side and melting in the heat... they took the piece to replace it and I haven't seen them or the part since. It is now 7 months later and still no dishwasher.

My air conditioning did not work the entire summer and still does not work, it is now winter so as they say, out of sight, out of mind.

Every thing related to plumbing is not quite up to par:
-The nozzles in my shower actually have seperated from the wall due to poor craftsmanship and now water seeps back into the space between the dry wall and the tub... I'm sure there is mold but I'm too scared to look. I've found extremely large roaches in the tub on multiple occasions. I'm actually afraid to shower in my own home.
- The plumbing is shoddy and shared with your neighbor. I know this because the child next door put paper towels into the toilet which clogged everything. After work I came home to actual feces and water flooding the living room. (This same toilet has actually run since I moved in and maintenance has done nothing to fix it, even though I've asked repeatedly and my water bills are exorbanent)
- Columbia gas actually shut off my water heater during a routine inspection because sewage was dripping onto it from the downstairs bathroom (into the basement) and it was a hazard. This was a few months later so no these two occurences are not linked.

There was an actual drug bust in the complex complete with mobile command center, snipers, a swat team and FBI agents in broad daylight a few months ago. I've never been more terrified, although I can say it's been a little quieter in the evenings since. Now instead of people playing loud music the only disturbances are of the domestic abuse variety.

I've seen several tires (though not my own... knock on wood) slashed.

There is always broken glass, beer bottles, cans, cigarette butts and trash lying around outside. Stray cats and groundhogs roam the property. These groundhogs are the size of small dogs and are quite frankly frightening.

I really came into this with high hopes. I'm a college student on a limited budget and I wanted some space for a bedroom and a second room for an office so I lease one of the 2 bdrm townhomes for $500 per month plus utilities which seemed reasonable. I could not have been more excited to move in. It really is one of my biggest regrets, I should have just kept looking.

Please do not rely on rent.com, you will find better units just driving around, asking friends, coworkers or peers at school. Even craigslist has better units available for research.

Management has changed at least 3 times in the year that I've been here and on two occasions I recieved 3-day notices when I have been early for every single month's rent. It's embarassing because they are taped to your door on red paper and instead of an apology the staff member I spoke to, who didn't believe I had paid and kept me on hold for 25 minutes to verify just said "oh, well that was wrong then call back if it happens next month..." (which it did)

Know what you're getting into if you sign a lease at Oakbrook Manor. My favorite place about it will be leaving in 15 days! :)

I ignored the bad reviews out of sheer stubbornness when I moved in and was determined to make it a good experience for myself, I wasn't able to do so. Good luck to the rest of you, and happy hunting!

It's January of 2011 as I write this- crucial because management of this complex changes hands more quickly than latex gloves in a proctologist's office, and that in turn impacts the quality. We've been living in a 2-bedroom townhouse for about 1.5 years, and don't plan to move any time soon, unless it's upgrading to a larger unit. I can only vouch for living quality in the townhomes, so if you're looking to rent an apartment your mileage may vary.

I'll start with the good news. The office has been renovated and the staff is friendly. Because the complex is part of Franklin Township and not Columbus, response times for EMS, Fire and Police are extraordinarily good- usually 5 minutes or less. During the summer- when police get more busy- the complex has a security detail of off-duty police that keep an eye out for any trouble. Any time we've had a problem with the building, maintenance has been quick to respond. Our rent has been reasonable, and our stay has been relatively quiet.

Now for the bad news...When I say it's relatively quiet, I mean it. If you've been living in the suburbs or you're unfortunate enough to be relocating from a neighborhood that's /actually/ quiet, you're in for a disappointment. Your neighbors will drive you crazy. Domestic disputes are common, and there are a lot of kids running around outside after school. I've seen dumpster fires, dealt with bedbugs, cockroaches, feral cat colonies, and hordes of groundhogs. Everyone here seems to own a pitbull, and they leave droppings EVERYWHERE. Do yourself a favor and don't walk in the grass. If you have kids don't let them play in the grass either, as broken glass is also common. You're better off taking them to a playground, really. The streets aren't plowed until /after/ most of the snow has melted, so good luck telling where the grass is until then. If you're coming from a ghetto like I have, you'll be delighted to find that most of these are mild in comparison to the fear of being shot and robbed on a regular basis- the neighborhood is actually pretty safe with the constant presence of police, if you're careful not to wander around the empty buildings.

While the staff is friendly, most of them don't speak English very well, and some of them are so addled in the brain it's a wonder they speak at all. While maintenance is quick to respond, the plumbing was so botched when the complex was built that you'll find it necessary to call on them way too often. Our basement, like many others, has flooded with rainwater (thankfully pulling a Gatorade bottle out of the drain fixed this issue permanently). The shower drain hates to do its job. The copper wiring and pipes have been torn out of these buildings so frequently mold from gushing water has been a problem and past management decided to forgo proper insulation. They just sealed up the walls with drywall, so be prepared to spend a ton on heating and cooling your home.

If you're on a tight budget, this place will save you from the bonified ghettos on the east side of town and the Linden area. For the price you get a lot of space (including a basement) and don't have to deal with hearing your neighbors from above or below. If there's any trouble, you don't have to wait for 30-45 minutes for Columbus PD to show up like I've had to deal with in other neighborhoods nearby. If you're the sort of person who gets shivers when you hear ebonics, are bothered by immigrants (legal or otherwise), and think your neighborhood has to feature amenities like a jogging track, pond, bar, park, or owners association, you're barking up the wrong tree. Save your money and buy a cozy little studio in one of the wealthier neighborhoods of Columbus.

Terrible place to live. I lived there for over a year. The manager changed the locks on my apartment because I wouldnt let the maintenance guy in my apartment to read the water main when I was sleeping and didnt even know he was coming. Maintenance walked in my apartment on me without notice I dont know how many times. I got in trouble with AEP because my electric was turned on illegally when I moved in. My neighbors had people living there illegally who slashed my tires and scrapped my car with their car. I had a baby in January and came home to no gas with my newborn because Columbia Gas detected a leak. It took a week of me calling 3 times a day to get someone to fix it and it only took him 20 minuets to get it done! I asked the office for a space heater (which they have several in stock because hardly anyone has a working furnace) only to be told that they were all lent out to other residents! My furnace, in fact had writing on it for a service date in 1978 - that's 10 years older than I am! I had to duct tape it together because all the hot or cold air came out the sides where it was falling apart. I loved how big the apartment was and it sure was cheap but I would definitely look elsewhere.

This is the worst complex in town there are roaches and bed bugs in the town houses. If you need any maitenance done you have to complain for a month before they get to it, if they get to it. Tennants throw trash everywhere and no one watches their kids. They paint the walls with mostly primar and everything falls apart. My door hinges are upside down so the pins fall out and all my fawcets are on backwards. The office raised the rent to $689.00 for a three bedroom townhome to live in the slums that's a joke. Someone even tried to break onto our townhouse while we were at work. Don't rent from this place it,s more aggrevation than its worth.

The biggest mistake I made was renting from Oakbrook Manor. Today I was awaken by police to find that the entire block had be vandalized by a man strung out on crack. Since I have lived here there has been two drug bust, people have tried to break into my apartment, and one of my neighbors would not let me get into my vehicle. This is not a safe place for children or adults. The one month free rent may look good but do not rent from these people. They are money hungry and do not care what kind of people they let live here. I was told to get out of my lease I would have to pay two months rent. I do not feel safe here and find that it is a horrible place to live.

My son and daughter-in-law live there and they hate it. It has to be one of the worst apartment complexes in Columbus. The other tenents have no concept of how to use the dumpsters. Everytime I have visited there, there is garbage all around the dumpsters. I asked my son about it, he said the Somalians and Mexicans just throw the garbage where they want.
My son and daughter in law, says that the office is always coming after them for money. Their A/C is also not working. Hell, when they first moved in, that was in Feburary, their furnace was not working, they were given space heaters, that is just absurd! They first "maintance" person they sent could not speak English. They did fix the furnace, they are still on a waiting list for the A/C.
One can only hope that when the casino opens, they will get rid of this complex and build a hotel! This place has no saving grace...it needs to go!
