Well, i liked Laurelwood for the first couple of months. After the exterminator came TWICE to spray for the discusting 100 legged half-centipede/half spider looking things that run across the apartment every day, I started to get a little annoyed. The creatures haven't gone away no matter how immaculate i keep the apartment. BUT, even as discusting as creatures crawling around building is... what ticks me off even MORE, is the cable/phone/internet service that they MAKE you get. It's called Ispeed, and no other cable or phone company will service laurelwood apartments. My cable is 43 bucks a month and my internet is 49. The cable channels come in at all differernt volume levels, one channel will be too quiet, the next WAY too loud. Some channels have static and lines across the screen... theres no tv guid channel, just one channel that tells you what channel is nbc, usa... etc. It's ridiculous. The internet service only works half of the time. If i knew BEFORE i moved here that i can't choose my own internet and cable services i really don't think i would have moved here. 90 bucks a month for crappy service is ridiculous. \r
Don't plan on using the pool very often, its closed more than its open, and when it IS actually open, theres about 15 little kids jumping, splashing, running.. its the opposite of relaxing at the pool.\r
oh, one more thing... we just finally had someone move in above us, it was empty for about 2 months. We can hear EVERYTHING. We can hear him walking around ALLL DAY LONG. I've been woken up twice from them shutting a bedroom/bathroom door. You can even hear them using their bathroom!! The walls and floors are like tissue paper. I hope this warning helps someone interested in laurelwood. DON'T MOVE HERE!!!
Pros: great area, close to everything
Cons: not being able to choose your service providers, poor extermination
