Well-maintained apartment with dedicated parking spot|Recommended: YesThe apartment is at second floor which I like because of more privacy. I was surprised at how clean and well-maintained the unit was when I moved in. It has large storage space for the luggage. The apartment is located in a nice and safe neighborhood. The great thing that I like is how many the windows are in the unit, so it is quite bright during the day. I also get dedicated parking spot for my apartment unit and there are also non-dedicated parking spots for guests. The laundry room is great which makes washing drying easy. The staffs are friendly and respond promptly when there is any issue. However, as is typical with in-house gas heater, it can get noisy when the heater is running. And there is no kitchen hood so if I cook, the cooking smell will linger in the house for quite some time. There is A C and ceiling fan in only one bedroom, none in the other it can be very warm in summer . Overall I love the apartment and will recommend to anyone.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review, Aditya. We appreciate the feedback and your residency!
Good value for the price|Recommended: YesIt is a good apartment for the price. Parking is almost always available. The neghborhood is nice and quiet. It is easy to get to. The window A C is not enough to effectively control the entire apartment, so it is like having no A C unless you spend all your time in the bedroom. The kitchen is very small. Very difficult to cook big meals.
Calm, homey and simple|Recommended: YesThese apartments are small but quaint. Large windows let in a lot of natural light. Staff is great and maintenance is speedy
Thank you, Tara, for your review! We love having you for our resident, and we're glad that you are happy!
Great and quiet place to live|Recommended: YesIt is a quiet place to live, parking availability is not a problem, and the maintenance people are amazing and fix problems in a timely fashion. I am able to take the bus to the university as well as downtown champaign. I am glad I chose to live here.
Thank you, Kim! We are happy to know that you enjoy living at our Healey Street location! Thank you for choosing Royse & Brinkmeyer!
Cozy Apartment Great Service|Recommended: YesI have had a great experience with Royse Brinkmeyer at their Healey St location. Rental prices are much lower than most non-student living, and I have had no notable issues since moving in. Its a relatively quiet area, so aside from creaky floors above me, there is not much sound coming from the surrounding apartments. Maintenance is fantastic, and they respond to your requests in a very reasonable amount of time. The kitchen could definitely use a face lift, particularly the addition of more cupboards, and the windows don't do any favours in the winter to keep the cold out- but overall I love my apartment.
Thank you, Brittany! We enjoy having you as our resident!
Great location in a quiet neighborhood. |Recommended: YesGreat location- near several bus stops, library, downtown Champaign. Nice neighborhood.
Thank you, Raegan! We love hearing from our residents! We agree that Healey Street is in a great location!
Quiet and peaceful.|Recommended: YesIt is nice and quiet. Perfect for a non-party type environment for a student.
Thanks for your feedback!
Nice place, well maintained and managed|Recommended: YesIt's a clean, well maintained and reasonably quiet apartment complex.
Thank you! We appreciate your residency!
Affordable, comfortable, convenient |Recommended: YesIt's nice because I'm close to campus and a bus line. It's easy to get to work and school on time.
Pretty good little apartment :) |Recommended: YesIt's nice. Not a bad price for where it is and really close to the bus. I like that I can walk to the bus stop and library. My neighbors are pretty quiet, so no complaints there.
A great situation for the money|Recommended: YesI would tell them that it's a great location. Basically midway between downtown Champaign and the U of I campus. It's just a block away from the bus stop too. This website is handy, but you never know exactly how much you owe because there is no place that it tells you. So you have to guess what your balance is. Last month I was off by $3.00 and received a semi-threatening letter in the mail about how I owed the $3 still. I was thinking "Wow, I bet this letter took at least $3 worth of manpower and resources to send out. How ridiculous!" It was probably an automated letter, but still the system of online payment needs a little polishing. My hot water heater is not the best, the water does get really really hot, but doesn't last for very long at all. My A/C sucks. Just the one room that has the A/C unit gets nice and cool. They told me it would be sufficient to cool the whole apartment. INCORRECT. Everything else works fine and I love the place. Laundry is a little expensive in my opinion, $1 for a wash, $1.25 to dry. Parking is a little awkward with the assigned spots, but I guess it's better than not being able to find a spot. I love how quiet it is. My floor creaks really bad, so I bet my downstairs neighbors can hear me walking but I can hardly EVER hear anything from any of my neighbors. It's basically a soundproof building. Unbelievable.
Nice neighborhood, convenient location near campus|Recommended: YesIt's a nice affordable two-bedroom apartment of a size suitable for a couple or single person. Close to campus for those who need to get there, but far enough away to avoid being surrounded by students. While the single AC unit cools the apartment nicely when all the doors are open and a fan is used for circulation, the bedroom without is always quite a bit warmer. The folks at Royse and Brinkmeyer are very helpful and courteous. Problems/maintenance requests are attended to quickly. Noise levels vary, dependent on neighbors. Even with the windows closed, voices from the parking lot, adjacent units, and courtyard will occasionally penetrate into your apartment. Also, the tenants in the upstairs units have a tendency to forget that their floors are another's ceiling.
Good deal for the money, needs more kitchen storage|Recommended: YesI would tell them it's a good deal for the money, that I miss having a bigger kitchen, but the 2nd bedroom makes up for it. It would be nice to have cabinets hung over the kitchen counter. I would say my neighbor's kids are loud and that my apartment gets really hot and the little air conditioner can't keep the whole place cool without spending a fortune. I would say the location is perfect and maintenance is excellent. I would also say that the "one key per person on the lease" rule is pretty silly when only one person total is on the lease. I travel a lot and need someone to feed my cats: therefore I am constantly having to check out an extra key. It would be nice to have a 2nd key, when one person lives alone, in case the resident locks themselves out. It would be consistent with other rental companies' policies and would save your staff the trouble of having to let the resident in or signing out keys all the time.
Working on the 3rd year|Recommended: Yesand so far very satisfied with the company.
