I would not live any other place. This was the first place I looked , and I signed my lease the same day. It's a great place to be a student at!(:
Overall I enjoy living here. But I don't like that the houses aren't well made and we have the constant issue of rats, spiders, and recently worms. I also think that speed bumps should be built; I've almost had my car hit multiple times because people go so fast.
My roommates and I did have a few issues with our cottage, but they were taken care of promptly and thoroughly. Management definitely improved over the course of the year.
I love living here ! But I wish the gates would actually close! The staff is friendly and even if they don't know an answer they help you find one
I've had a decent experience living at the cottages. I wish it was easier to break a lease or provide a 6 month lease to those who have legitimate excuses. Try to accommodate your guests more.
Wifi is a constant problem, but only if you live in the back. The new management is a huge step up from the last people. It's a good place to live but the houses are made extremely cheap with no insulation.
Love the amentities, the service is great as well! But I have trouble with the wifi sometimes and have had some problems with people egging some of the cottages. I also wish you would actually close the gated after a certain time.
The only problem I have is how long it takes for people do get stuff done around here. I feel like there lack of communication and organization.
the houses are nice but could be better kept with speed bumps, closing gates, and regular trash pick up. The game room could also be cleaned up including the spas and pool tables.
I would recommend staying at the cottages to anyone. I have had nothing but a positive experience and I have even renewed my lease for next year! They are always on top of things by making your stay with them the best. One time, I had to do a maintenance request and they were there within 20 minutes!
Facilities are extremely nice and staff is polite. The only downsides I can think of are the internet and the fact that the gate is always open.
My online complaint is that our wifi does not work and hasn't worked since Suddenlink came and "updated" it in November 2014. I wish the Cottages would do a little more to help us get it fixed.
Great place to live along with quick response time for services. Staff is friendly & willing to help. The amenities & cheaper cable/utilities is a plus too.
Ammenities are great, it's just hard getting ahold of maintenance! Our fire alarm is very sensitive and goes off way to often in the kitchen causing all the other alarms in the house to go off, waking up my 5 roommates... We've tried getting then fixed but it never works.
Although the rent is expensive, its a pretty nice place to live. This new management is wayyyyyy better than the old one! Going on year 3 of living here!
Very clean properties and helpful staff. The Cottages have a very nice neighborhood and a welcoming community feel. One of the things I also appreciate is that it is a dog friendly complex which is great.
There is a really great atmosphere surrounding this place I can't even explain it. The rooms are nice, the people are really nice, and the pool is even nicer.
I love living here. The pool is the best pool in college station. Definitely the best complex in college station as well. I've told all my friends to live here that are coming here next year.
The cottage buildings themselves are great to live in and very enjoyable, but the front office has consistently been a pretty gigantic hassle to deal with the entire time I've lived here, and the parking situation needs to be amended somehow
I absolutely love living at the cottages! The amenities are great and the pool is always so much fun. The only thing I wish is that it was closer to campus, but the bus definitely helps. I would recommend the cottages to my friends and I am living here again next year.
Maintenance could be better outside and within our houses. I like how the pest control guy is always available for us. Overall, I think this is a great place to live.
not best good of following through with requests. The gate isn't closed and let's randoms into the pool. Not enough parking as well, residents end up far from their houses
Since the new management has taken over there have been very little problems. I enjoy the experience of living here minus a few small things. We had a mouse problem, but has seemed to be helped, and the front bedroom had a bad smell that could not be found... that one is still a mystery and still sometimes smells.
This is my first year in College Station and I picked The Cottages of College Station, because they are beyond beautiful and very near to live in. The clubhouse and pool are very neat and clean 24/7. I have already renewed my lease here for next year, because my mom will not let me leave The Cottages. It's like a resort my family refers to it as.
Overall a good experience. The main issue was the condition of the house at the beginning of the year. Maintenance was easy to contact, and they came in a timely manner.
