Viewed several apartments all of which had dirty corridors. Van Buren had decayed bugs in the hallway carpeting, st Clare smelled dirty with litter in the corridors and sticky stairs, Marshall hall was fairly clean looked well maintained no bad odors noticed, the plaza had dirty painted stairs and smelly carpet in the corridors. We're not sure but based on this Marshall looks the best maintained. My kids gave me the details for each property.
Good inexpensive rental options in downtown Milwaukee. Another benefit is that they have 6 months lease and then month on month. Could spend little more to have cleaner apartment buildings.
We lived in two shoreline apartments over 4 and a half years. Our time in the apartments was totally fine and affordable. Unfortunately, moving out was an absolute nightmare. When giving our notice to end our lease on July 31 one of the office employees informed us new tenants were moving in on August 1st and tried to pressure us to move earlier. After we moved we were charged a $500 cleaning fee “so another tenant could move in on the 1st” despite leaving the unit in good condition. Clearly we paid for their rush clean up job to get a new tenant in ASAP. Both of our building managers were helpful but unfortunately the rudeness from the office workers and overall cheapness make me unable to recommend shoreline when other companies will treat you better. Edit: Unfortunately admitting that they do not usually clean apartments between tenants and acting aggressive and threatening towards tenants makes it clear our experience was not an aberration. Best to avoid Shoreline going forward.
Shoreline fairly prices their units and I’ve only had great experiences with management and our landlord at the Devonshire, Marvin. All maintenance requests were responded to in 24 hours or less. Only thing to note is the buildings (or at least our building) are older so things like loud radiators, creaky floors, and things breaking (like the lock for our mailbox) happen. It’s not Shorelines fault, just something to know before moving into these older (very cute and character filled!) apartments.
Place is full of cockroaches and silverfish. Laundry machines are always finicky and pausing every few minutes, or are even underpowered, making laundry a hassle every time. The landlord is nice, but he hardly responds to texts, and takes forever to get maintenance workers to my unit when I request so. Bathrooms are old and full of bugs, especially the aforementioned cockroaches and silverfish. The furnace works on an automatic schedule and is underpowered, so not enough heat generates to keep me warm. I had to use a space heater along with the furnace. The only redeeming quality this place has is the cheap rent, but I was charged a double security deposit which I think is asinine for any renting company to do, but I was running out of options at the time so that's why I still went with this place. I'm out of this place at the end of April, and I can't wait.
