Review From Modern Messagesubmitted by Tali B. - |Recommended: YesHillside is great fie many ... — Hillside is great fie many reasons, first there is minimal sound pollution between rooms and apartments, the building is kept clean and the bus is running consistently through class times.

submitted by Regina L. - |Recommended: YesI think this is a great place to live for a college student — I would tell them that the building and people are great but the visitor parking is absolutely ridiculous. Its almost impossible to have friends visit without having a problem.
response from property -Hi Regina, thank you for your 5 star review! We are happy to hear you had a great experience with our community and with our staff! As for the visitor parking, we are aware it is limited, but do have other options that visitors can look into for parking near by if our visitor lot is full. As always, please stop by our office if you ever need anything and we will always do our best to assist.
submitted by Sean R. - |Recommended: YesNice place — the walls within the apartment itself are thin and you can hear everything, however, it is still a great place to live nonetheless.
response from property -Hi Sean! Thank you for your 5 star review! We are so happy to hear that you have enjoyed living at Hillside and feel it was a great decision! If you ever need anything, please let us know.
submitted by Caitlin P. - |Recommended: YesEnjoyed living here, however there were some issues. — Hillside is very nice, and conveniently located to campus, but it is a little overpriced for the quality of the structure of the building, and parking is a little frustrating. Also I could constantly hear my upstairs neighbors.
response from property -Hi Caitlin. Thank you for your 5 star review! We are so glad to hear you have enjoyed living at Hillside! We would love the opportunity to discuss your concerns and see how we can help improve your experience. Please feel free to stop by the office to speak to a manager at your earliest convenience.
submitted by Miguel-Angel C. - |Recommended: YesParking — Awesome
response from property -Hi Miguel, thank you for your 5 star review - simple and to the point! We are glad you enjoy the on-site parking : ) If you ever need anything, please let our office know.
submitted by Nicholas C. - |Recommended: YesWay better than dorm life — Lots of space compared to dorm living. Nice common areas. Weird smell when we moved into apartment. Was not 100 clean. Then they charged inflated prices for minor things at checkout.
response from property -Hi Nicholas, thank you for your 4 star review! We are pleased to know you had a good experience here at Hillside and felt your apartment was spacious. As for your move in concerns, I hope you notified us at that time so that we had the opportunity to address your concerns. We strive to have the units in tip top shape when new residents move in and to address any items that may have been overlooked by accident, immediately. As for your move-out inspection, if you have any specific concerns about the charges, please contact our office to discuss further. Thank you for choosing Hillside as your home-away-from home!

response from property -Hi Jaret! Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that the service you received so far has been great. We look forward to continuing that and having you at our community this Fall!
submitted by James P. - |Recommended: YesProfessionally kept with exception to Blodgett drive — The property is exceptional and very well kept. With that being said, Blodgett drive is a death trap in the winter. I understand its the city's property, but I shouldn't have to pay the rent I pay to not be able to safely drive to and from my apartment the busses aren't safe either then . There were a few time where I couldn't make it up the hill and once I almost slide off the road into the baseball field, but was luckily stopped by the sidewalk.
response from property -Hi James, thank you so much for your 5 star review! We are so glad you have had such a great experience, even despite Blodgett Dr. not being cleared promptly in the winter at times. We are very aware of this concern and continue to alert the city immediately of concerning conditions and do our best to help the city understand the importance and priority this road is, as it is heavily traveled and the safety of our residents is very important to us.
submitted by Ashley R. - |Recommended: YesGreat place for college — I love it
response from property -Hi Ashley! Thank your for your review! Simple and to the point. We LOVE that you "love it" here! As always, please let us know if you need anything.
submitted by Madison B. - |Recommended: YesThis feels like a true home, with your own private modern space. — I would tell them I feel like such a mature adult and different person at hillside. Everyone is so nice and respectful to one another. I absolutely love living here. Its a true home away from home.
response from property -Wow, Madison! Thank you for your 5 star review. We truly love hearing the things we are doing right to help make our resident experience exactly that! As always, we are here if you need anything.
Review From Modern Messagesubmitted by Jake H. - |Recommended: YesEverything here has been ve... — Everything here has been very good. I love using the grill and playing pool downstairs. I love waking up on weekends and getting a waffle from the lounge.
response from property -Hi Jake! Thank your for sharing this review. We love that you enjoy taking advantage of so many amenities. We strive to offer a lot of great options. As always, please contact us if you ever need anything!

Great apartment
response from property -Wow, thank you Linda for this awesome review! We are so happy to know you have had such a great experience and that your apartment and staff have exceeded your expectations! We are always here if you ever need anything.
submitted by Karen B. - |Recommended: YesThe property is very nice. My daughter is very happy living there. — Happy with the property. Not happy that my account shows delinquency notices when it is because Hillside Commons didn't cash the checks timely. Protocols should be put in place for emergencies.
response from property -Hi Karen, thank you for your review! We are so happy to know that your daughter enjoys living at Hillside! We apologize if you have received the automatic payment reminder notice during the payment grace period, prior to your check being processed in the past. We have since turned this feature off in our system, as it causes confusion at times. Monday through Friday we do our best to process checks the same day we receive them in the mail. If you prefer to make an instant payment, we do accept echeck payments online, which is free to do. As for what to do in case of an emergency, please have your daughter contact our office if she has a specific concern that we can help address. Thank you!
