Bettendorf Reviews

39 reviews
All Categories
I have only been living here for about 8 months and I have got to say that I love this area. I'm so close to everything- shopping, grocery stores, hospitals, schools, you name it. The area is very new and clean and one thing I love is that it is very outdoorsy. There is a dog park right around the corner from my house that sits in front of tons of parks and hiking trails. I know in the future I will have to move again for work and I am going to be sad to leave here.
Bettendorf is an amazing place to live! My neighbors are amazing. We worried about moving into an apartment due to all the complications we might have, but so far are really enjoying it. The apartment itself is a little run-down, but the owner is great working with everyone!
One of the biggest reasons I live in Bettendorf is the school systems here. Not just the K-12 but also the community college as well. Other great things about Bettendorf are that the city does an excellent job of keeping the area clean, low crime, timely snow removal, and great upkeep of the roads. The only thing that can make living in Bettendorf difficult is the cost of renting/owning is higher than average for a smaller size of home. I equate this to the diligence of the schools as well as city employees.
