It is a wolf in sheep's clothing!! It seems like an affordable, clean and pet friendly complex but it is all just a facade. Management waits until your moving truck is packed, in the driveway and your ready to pick up the keys and sign the lease before they disclose the actual terms of the contract. Wow, 60 days notice instead of the usual 30? A copy of my vehicle registration? You want me to fill out the walk through forms and return them to the office? Um, not my job but ok......and that was just the beginning. As the months went by I discovered that the management staff could care less about their tenants. The apartment itself has been shabbily patched from past damages. Thin walls and thinner windows, you can hear everyone and everything. Bathroom smells like mildew no matter how much I clean it. Toilet barely has enough water pressure to do it's job. Dog hair on every inch of the baseboards. Traffic and noise 24/7 from trucks, moving, trash, towing, delivery, utility and construction. I found out after the fact there are dozens of rating and review sites where tenants past and present complain bitterly about the management and the poor condition of the units. Many tenants complain that after their lease ended that they were gouged big time if paying month to month. Also complaints that management finds a way to keep the security deposit no matter how clean and intact they left the unit. Beware of being taken advantage of, ask to read a copy of the leasing contract before you hand over a deposit and make plans to move.

Please look somewhere else, the cheaper rent and move in special is not worth the headaches that you will have after you sign the lease. Only one other review is current and true, the other two reviews are over five years old.

The noise here is ridiculous! Every day and night you will hear moving trucks, tow trucks, delivery trucks, trash trucks, leaf blowers, and noisy construction. It actually drowns out the freeway noise and any barking dogs.

There are constantly the sounds of tow trucks day and night with their diesel engines running and tow chains dragging looking to tow anyone they can.

And don't look for any help from the property manager or the assistant property manager. They use the two leasing agents to run interference for the VIP's.

If you do have a problem or a repair I can guarantee you will wait and then wait some more. Hope it's not serious because they are soooo busy, short staffed, can't give you a definite time or whatever excuse they can come up with.

They require 60 days notice which doesn't seem like a big deal at first, until your counting the days and weeks until you can move out this awful place.

Great, just what I wanted was to move again. Next time I will be sure to read reviews, check out the BBB and actually drive by at different times to check it out with the guided tour.

When I began looking for apartments with 2 large dogs, my options were fairly narrow. I was recommended to Las Flores because they allow large dogs and a park that allows dogs is attached to the grounds. I took a tour and thought that the complex was nice. I figured it would be my best option, as I go to UCSD and it is close to campus as well. HUGE mistake. When I first took my tour, I asked the staff about what utilities residents were responsible for. The woman working here specifically told me only water, sewage, and trash. She even wrote it down on their information sheet. Only after I had already paid my deposit did they tell me residents actually have to pay all utilities, and they even had the nerve to act like I was making up what I was told before. I wish I'd been smart and just cut my losses then and looked for another place. I've now lived at Las Flores for 3 months and I've had nothing but bad experiences with the staff and neighbors. The staff is very disorganized and most of the time blatantly rude. For instance, when I moved in I gave them a copy of my Renter's Insurance policy for their records. They lost it, and instead of admitting it or just simply asking for another copy, they left a note on my door saying that I was in violation of my lease and wouldn't be allowed to live there anymore if I didn't provide my proof of Renter's Insurance. And then there's the neighbors. I hear parties all the time and it's rare if I walk outside my apartment and it doesn't smell like pot. And then they have the nerve to complain about me. Like I said before, I have two dogs. I also am a full time student with a part time job. My roommate is the same way. Obviously we cannot always have someone home with the dogs. And now we've been threatened to either have our rights to pets revoked or be forced out of the complex because our dogs were barking when I was gone for 2 hours at school and the neighbors complained. And, mind you, this was 12pm to 2 pm. Yes PM, not AM. Every person I have met here is completely inconsiderate and self-centered. I cannot wait until I can get out of this hellhole. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. STAY AWAY!

These are one of the few sets of building around La Jolla that still display some character in their presentation. While everything else seems to be painted some dull variation of dirt, Las Flores remains true with its white exteriors and blue tile trim. Parking is not great, with the outdoor spaces way too small for most modern cars to fit well, and close quartered garages, though tenants do have the benefits of gated parking. The landscaping is very natural, and the units simply organized but sufficient.

Nice quiet location behind the Mormon temple in La Jolla. Close to UCSD and the shuttle line. The apartments were very spacious and well designed. Good sized kitchens as well. Depending on where in the complex your apt is located, the laundry room might be a little walk. Also, parking is extremely hard for guests.
