I moved into Westmar Student Lofts in August 2012. I saw Westmar online and was so excited that I signed a lease the day I toured, but when I got home, I started reading reviews, and I literally started feeling sick to my stomach and cried. I called the next day trying to cancel my lease, but of course, it's a contract so I couldn't. But then I started thinking about how I don's usually write reviews myself and probably shouldn't take them too seriously since most people who write bad reviews probably just got evicted or had a bad experience, which doesn't mean it would be that way for everyone, so I moved in.
Now, I love Westmar. Some of my best friends live here, it's so convenient, and the pool and gym are awesome. Almost everyone who works in the office (except management) lives here, so they really know what it’s like to live here and go to school and they are helpful and nice. They know what the problems are so they can talk to management about them. I go to GSU and the bus takes me so I don’t have to pay to park on campus, which is like $800 or something crazy. I can also park my car here for free, which is cool cause that doesn’t usually happen in Atlanta.
There are some things about living at Westmar that aren’t great, but I think that’s probably the case everywhere. There are like a thousand people who live here and we’re all in college, so yeah sometimes it’s loud, but you can call security if you have a problem or complaint and they’ll come take care of it. Also sometimes people try to smoke in their rooms, but if this happens to you, just tell security when it’s happening and they’ll come up to the room. Oh and the room doesn’t look like the model, but I decorated mine the way I wanted and I think it’s cuter ;) but BRING A MATRESS PAD. I have a memory foam topper.
Use the roommate matching thing if it’s available when you move in cause that helps a LOT or bring friends to move in with you so you don’t get stuck with someone who is messy or loud or rude ?
So I usually don’t write reviews but I decided I would because I really like Westmar and I want there to be more people who like it so it’ll be even better. Just give it a chance and see for yourself.
