The Village on Sixth has been my home away from home for the past three years now and I have actually had a great experience while living here. There is no place else in Huntington, WV where I could pay $419.00/month and have everything

This was definitely the worst experience I ever had with housing. To be honest, I think living on campus would be more suffice for the price. For the Village, you pay for something not worth the price, you have to face unbearable

The village on 6th is an okay place to live. That was the impression I developed right after moving in. The furniture is somewhat nice, and it does have a washer and dryer and a couch. There are many cons as well, for a few examples:

I moved in here thinking that my apt was going to look at least similar to the model and the pictures they showed us. However, I was in for a big surprise. Management says you cant move in early because they need all summer to clean. WHAT

I moved here 3 years ago upon a suggestion from my friend because this was the only apt complex she knew of in Huntington. I have since begun my nightmare, otherwise known as my living experience at the village. I started out living with someone I didn't even know who left the apt only to leave me with a high school student for a roommate who had drug dealers and convicts in and out of the apt at all hours of the night, leading up to having an anonymous psycho kicking the door in while I was asleep. I had to practically beg the management to move me into a different apt because of obvious safety reasons and was put into what I can only describe as a dog kennel, where a girl was letting her tiny dog use the bathroom all over the place, even though there are no animals allowed in these apts and the management even went as far as to inform me of this before I moved in, so they were aware of the problem and did nothing about it as I lived in complete filth for months. I was then given 3 days notice to move into the apt I wished to live in 6 months prior to living with the dog girl and had to move all of my belongings with my sister for 2 days straight into an apt where the previous tenant had not even had time to move out her own belongings, and the air conditioner was broken so I had to move in an apt that was 90 degrees and sleep in the dog kennel, where I was also left to clean up my previous roommates DISGUSTING MESS, including at least 40 liquor bottles she kept as souvenirs, pounds of dog feces and the entire contents of her refrigerator even though NONE of this mess was mine. Upon settling into my new apt, where I had lived for a year, my new roommate and I have received what I can only describe as electric overages fit for Bill Gates to pay, which is strange considering my roommate is rarely home; the explanation given to me was that overages were given to people who live on the 3rd floor??? This was then taken back and I was told I was mistaken and did not hear this statement clearly, and if this is true future 3rd floor tenants should be notified of this before they move in and it should be published in the lease, I believe this is illegal. Maint. employees come and go whenever they please, knocking and giving tenants 5 seconds to answer the door before entering, there have been several incidents where I have almost been caught naked and had to run into the bathroom, which they also try to enter. The latest development is management trying to charge my roommate and I for an apparent "exploded fire extinguisher" that is fully intact and I am staring at 2 sitting on my counter that have never been used, yet we are facing $100 in charges, not to mention the ridiculous attitude that management gives to every single person here, you are treated like complete dirt under their feet and talked down to like children. If you are thinking of moving here for perks such as tanning, think again. The tanning beds are old and the bulbs have hair hanging off of them and they schedule your tanning appts and then change them the next day without notifying you after you have already applied tanning lotion and showed up to tan. I am moving at the end of my lease and strongly suggest staying as far away from these apts as possible if you would like to keep your sanity and money.

Pros: none

Cons: EVERYTHING

.

Prior to moving into these apartments I had certain expectations that have still yet to be met. Hopefully the following information will reduce your initial shock and help you make an informed decision. I had looked at many of the apts in this area and begrudgingly accepted this one based on the following:
-within 1-2 blocks from Marshall University
-parking (not individually assigned) that saves from paying Marshall a parking fee
-near full size washer and dryer in each apt, free cable with some HD channels
-Central Heating and Air
-furnished apt (ok for some)
-the gym is redundant if you are a Marshall student as you are required to pay for the one located on campus (still ok)
-my own bathroom in a 2-bedroom or 1 bedroom apt.
-The damage deposit is relatively cheap but I would not expect to see it refunded based on the current behavior of the management.
-On site maintenance is quick to resolve issues but some things seem beyond their ability or understanding.

My cons are:
-mailing address is not accepted by MANY online vendors. This applies to some but not all tenants.

-The current management has a policy of only cleaning an empty apartment once a lease has been signed and it will be unable to be viewed until the room has been cleaned and inspected by managment... regardless of how soon this lease is signed a "cleaning" will only be scheduled shortly before the planned move in date. They want you to base your choices off of a (not-to-scale) model within their office or photos on their website... this is the only complex in this city that has this policy... Management claims that this is to protect them from people changing their minds about the apartment. It is really the most detestable act of cornering a person into a contract and seems nearly illegal. But those of use with limited choices suck it up and agree to these rediculous "policies". furthermore if an apt has been inspected any issues found will be up to the tenant to spot and write down within 24 hours of receiving the key to the apt.

Other than this the apartments are nice (great by comparison to others found in Huntington... for the price) which makes me wonder why they act so sly about the whole ordeal. You may pay rent online with an increased service fee or pay by check and hope for the best. I say this because nearly every issue/problem that I have encountered is the result from bad communication or incompetence within the Village Office. In truth there are 1 or 2 great people, but do not expect much by phone or in person until you have a strong understanding of who it is that you are speaking with.

As for utilities everything is paid except electric which has a varying cap from apt to apt type (4br, 2br, 1br), the resident pays anything that goes over but has no way to confirm if the charge is legitimate. My apartments electric bill was near $120 for two people and every other resident I encountered has passed their cap this last month (Dec.) while according to the same tenants have rarely ever passed their cap in the past. When the cap is passed the difference is divided between the number of roomates.

As for the co-signing mentioned in the other review... she speaks the truth. Sometimes it seems that it is brought up at the last minute and it is an income amount that you must prove that you make on your own (the catch is that it is an income not available to students... in other words they do not count loans or any other money for school as a form of income from what I have observed.) Basically this is the best apartment for a Marshall student without a car... As a final note, not all residents are students and some classmates refuse to live here as they refer to it as a "ghetto" where loud parties and disrepectful guests are allowed within the complex at all hours of the night without regard to other tenants... supposedly there is some type of security that lives within "The Village" however, that has yet to deter anyone here.

Boyfriend lived there for 2 years and other than the maintenance being poor the pool was decent and they have a little fitness area ect. I liked it there and decided to get an apt of my own. First they pushed me into signing a lease saying we only have a couple rooms left. I gave them 350 dollars and signed the lease. I waited for my room to open up and upon attempting to move in, I was then informed I had to have a guaranteer of lease. Well I am on my own and noone would sign it so I tried to tell management. They said there is no way you can move in without that signed. I continued to contact courtyard about my situation and see if they could release the apt and give me back my dd. Of course now they couldnt get rid of it bc they had tons of vacancies. They are still trying to get me to give them 6480 dollars for an apartment they wont let me live in. Needless to say they have kept my 350 dollars as well.
