Central Hills Reviews

2 reviews
The scenery, and distance from the store may be a plus, but the neighbors above have been loud, and our location has been cramped together.The parking is hassle to deal with as it feels rushed and not thought out. The owners have changed the rules of to where we cannot contactthem of a noise complaint or even go tot he neighbors whose noise issue is affecting us; rather we are to contact the police for any disturbances. The interior of our apartment as well has been a hassle, the floors creak where the shouldnt, the walls have cracked or chipped in the paint, the doors of the closets have broken off repeatly because they werent correctly cut, the door of rooms are also cut improperly and a good inch of a single bedroom door from underneath of my room .

They respond greatly when they are needed, i dont really see crime as an issue around my area. The area around State street tends to be very busy, cop cars can be seen around that area alot. But they respond fairly quick to any issues around the neighborhoods in Boise. Crime is a very low around the city, but now and then you'll see a cop car pulling over someone, or an issue goingon in a neighborhood.
