|Recommended: YesGreat staff and spacious living arrangements — The staff was very helpful in getting moved in and fixing issues. The large windows and spacious living room made it a great place to hang out with roommates and guests. Perfect location for attending classes at Baylor.
response from property -Thank you so much for leaving this review for others to see. We really appreciate it. We want to make our residents move in stress-free. All of our staff is here to help and make you feel welcome at home. Feel free to reach out, we would love to hear more, sincerely, the LL Sams Apartments team.
|Recommended: YesGood Living Experience with Minor Complaints — The living experience at LL Sams is overall pretty good. Noise and cooling heating insulation could use some improvement. The walls seem very thin and the apartments take a lot of energy to stay cool or warm throughout the year, which adds up to be quite costly. This being said, the management is almost perfect with a few communication problems, and because there is a high employee turnover, it's hard to maintain contact with the same person when there is an issue. Other than that, the living experience is great with frequent events and free food throughout the year. The pool is always maintained and so is the gym and other public facilities. The units themselves are so unique and you can't beat the charm. The floor-to-ceiling windows and the chic industrial accents make for an overall luxury student living experience.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review, Annika! We're so glad that you've had a good time living here, and that you've enjoyed our pool, gym, and community events. Our staff works hard to maintain those public things, as well as our apartments, so that we can keep them clean and charming. We also appreciate your feedback. We'd like to address your concerns personally. Please reach out to us at email@example.com if you'd like. Best wishes, The LL Sams Apartments Management Team

|Recommended: YesNice Environment - Okay Management — Pros - Esthetic is cool, vibe is pretty chill, conveniently close to the river and Baylor. Cons - Dog poop consistently left everywhere, maintenance is lazy, management changes basically every year. Promises to upgrade all appliances completely broken. Some lofts are hardly lofts. The model unit does not represent the majority of the units. Pretty even with other comparable properties.

|Recommended: NoGreat look, but nothing works well — This place is really pretty. Unfortunately, the illusion fades in places. I realize management just changed a year ago so a lot of this is on previous owners, and I don't fault current management for inheriting a mess. That being said, this place needs some stuff. Our washer and dryer barely work, especially the dryer. 4-5 rounds of trying to get a medium-sized load done are way too much. There is next to no insulation, with the single pane windows and the multiple small cracks to outside. I can even see sunlight through my roof in places where pipes are headed through the ceiling, which can't help. This causes the ac unit to work themselves to death to compensate, and most tenants I know here have had issues requiring maintenance on them. I keep telling people who ask about this place that they should wait until the proper time is put into renovations, but that they shouldn't write this place off for in the future. Can't lie though, the fact that most work is being into a clubhouse that I didn't really want instead of trying to make the rooms a comfortable temperature when the temperature isn't equally pleasant is kind of disheartening. You're the pro's so if that is a priority, go for it, I've been wrong before.

|Recommended: YesBeautiful Place, but would not recommend to anyone — I have 3 major complaints, which are why I will not be resigning my lease. If these were not problems, I would not mind my rent being raised. But they all are issues that I cannot continue to tolerate. 1. Security There are few cameras on the property, and there are always problems with the gates. The doors to to building are open to whoever, which is not very comforting. 2. Cleanliness The grounds are DISGUSTING I walk out of my unit everyday and see either trash, leaves, or something spilled in the hallways. Everyday. It took a week to clean up french fries in the hall. There are cobwebbs everywhere in the halls too. Not to mention how gross it always smells because of dogs and pets. If there was air condidtioning systems or at the very least, circulation systems, in the halls it would not stink so much. This is only the inside. There are too many residents that let their dogs poop on the grounds and never pick it up. I have seen them allow it, PLUS management does not have anyone to clean the overflowing dog waste bins. Residents simply let their dog poop and leave it, or they throw it into an overflowing bin, and it falls to the ground. It looks trashy, it stinks, and it is embarrising. 3. I hear everything from my neighbors EVERYTHING if you know what I mean. I hear a dog barking as I type this. This is a constant issue. I always hear dogs yapping, howling, or barking. Every time I complain, nothing gets done about this. I know managment is professional and fun and caring, but when it comes to putting their foot down with residents not obeying rules, they can't handle it. My walls seem paper thin as I can here everything my neighbors are doing. I hate it. I would not recommend living here to anyone. The transitions in managment were successful and as the new staff settles in, things are improving. I would like to see them hire more people to keep the property clean, and work on installing more security, and maybe not use the money to construct a clubhouse.

|Recommended: NoManagement of the property in all areas - not good. — I like the style of our two bedroom apartment. However, from the very beginning of our lease August 2020 , we have had maintenance issues. Our air conditioning unit was broken the first few days when we moved in during the hottest month of the summer. Our bathroom and kitchen cabinets were wide open and would not shut properly...we still have issues with them. they are cheap We were told that after we moved in, within a month we would have new granite kitchen counters. August That did not happen until January. and we had to deal with the dirt and dust as they put them in while we were in the apartment We were also told that the empty common area outside our apartment would be furnished within a month. That area is still an empty concrete room. It takes forever to get maintenance requests fulfilled. We are diligent to keep our heat and AC at affordable temperatures and yet, our utilities on top of monthly rent are sky high. We just were alerted that our rent is overdue. At the beginning of the year, we put our rent on automatic payment so we would not forget. We are being charged a hefty late fee this month February because this is the SECOND time this year they have changed the software and are making us update again. We just happened to miss the two emails they sent about this and are being penalized because they send at least TWO emails A DAY anyway. I'm sorry, but I have a full load at school and a part time job and do not have time to check EVERY email they send. again, that is why we had automatic payments already set up These apartments are not cheap to lease or I would not have the expectations for better overall treatment of tenants. In years past, I've stayed at a lease home and another apartment complex that both treated tenants in a much more professional manner. I give LLSAMS a ONE STAR RATING

|Recommended: YesPretty good bang for your buck — Resident parking is easy, but be wary of visitor parking because they will tow. The gate is reassuring plus the proximity to campus means both Waco PD and Campus PD are available. The new renovations as of 2020-2021 are much appreciated. General hallways could use some upkeep but other than that, this place is pretty good Neighbor situation isn't too crazy either. Floors are easy to clean and mop as well.
Thank you for taking the time to share your kind words about our community. We don't take it lightly and it is greatly appreciated!
|Recommended: YesPretty neat place. — It has a very open and retro feel. My favorite aspect of the complex is the gated parking. There are many amenities that would make every weekend enjoyable without ever needing to leave. The office Staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
Cole, Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We are so happy to hear that you have enjoyed the gated parking, amenities and that our staff is treating the residents so well. We aim to hire the best to be there for our residents. -Kindly The LL Sams Apartments Management Team.
