Resident Reviews

Average Rating (4.7/5)

By Melissa R., Dec 13, 2017 from Apartments

Friendly leasing agent! Though I ultimately didn't choose lake towers as my home the pregnant leasing agent was the nicest leasing agent I had ever come into contact with! Reading reviews about the staff put me off at first, but then I got there her smiling face and positive attitude changed my mind immediately. If these were in my price range I definitely would have chosen these apartments because of the great experience.

I've lived at Lake Towers with my husband for a little over a year. The rent is very reasonable especially for such a great location. The neighbors are very diverse (all races, all income types) and are always super friendly. Parking is great. The noise level is great, because the entire apartment is made of cement. Unfortunately because it's made of cement, it's very difficult to decorate your walls, so that's a slight downfall, especially if you planned to put up wall shelving. Keep in mind the apartments are a little small, but that seems to be other people's opinion. I live in a two bedroom (one for my home office) and it's all the space I need. When I first tried to move in, they were very hard to get a hold of. In order to get anything done, I had to drive by and talk to them in person. The maintenance guys are hit or miss. Sometimes they come the next day, sometimes they take a month or two. If it's an emergency, they usually are pretty fast about it. Another con is that, since the apartments aren't far from a bad neighborhood, the parking lot gets frequent car break-ins and bike theft. Lock your car door and your bikes every night and this won't be a problem. Other than that, this place is very safe. As a small girl I feel very comfortable walking around. Again, it's a great location, so you have easy walking access to Downtown, Spanish Town Street and it's annual parade, and of course Spanish Town Market, which is a hip, cosy spot to drink coffee, eat lunch, or grab some groceries. Arsenal park, probably the prettiest park in Baton Rouge is also within close walking distance. We've also got some museums nearby. Overall this place is great and I would highly recommend even with the few cons.

Although there was a couple of rocky situations regarding management, everything has turned itself around in the last year. For the price you cannot beat the proximity to downtown. Having washers and dryers in every unit is extremely convienant and time saving. The concrete walls make hearing noise from your neighbors non-existent. My wife and I have been here for two years and overall we are satisfied with our experience here.


By Hillary, Jun 28, 2017 from Our Website

I truly enjoyed staying at Lake Towers. The location is great, tenants are friendly and management is also very nice. The only cons I have include garbage, maintenance and parking. I believe the complex needs extra garbage cans. Both of the dumpsters are always filled and eats roam around as you throw your garbage away. Several of my maintenance requests weren't fulfilled, even after I was contacted by management to see if it was done. As a previous tenant, I think it would be great if you're asked you'd want maintenance to contact you if they need to enter your apartment first. I had one incident where maintenance barged into my apartment without notice. Lastly, parking spots are very close. It's hard to walk between the cars while carrying anything to your apartment, especially moving. Other than that I had a great stay!


By Ali G, May 03, 2017 from Google

I would definitely recommend this apartment complex to my friends and family. I recently moved here, and the place is beautiful; it's quiet, and most people are friendly and tend to stay to themselves. When I first moved in, a tenant saw me struggling to place a heavy table in my apartment -- so he offered to help me move some of my furniture into my room without me even asking him. I have not seen any trash outside of the dumpster, and the grounds are kept clean. The manager is polite and does everything that she can to work with you; I haven't had any problems so far. I like how the living rooms are very spacious. No matter how much furniture I bring, I still have room left over to place more furniture. As for the amenities such as cable/Internet providers, you can choose between two providers: Cox Communications and AT&T. I would recommend that anyone who reads negative reviews about this apartment building to please come and see the place for itself.


By Robin Moore, Nov 16, 2016 from Google

I have been here almost 3 years and yet there has been a change in management and leasing staff. I must say Aynissa and Robin have better this apartment with the updating. When outside people come to the pool, they will ask them to leave and have told residents to call the police. Yes there have been some unpleasant residents that have moved here but if you have a problem with something they are doing; bring it to the management and they will handle it. I do wish they had a better management team but many issues that I have had since I moved here years of ago are finally getting resolved. Thank you Robin and Aynissa for doing an excellent job. As well as grounds keeper and maintenance.


By OS Coastie, Aug 09, 2016 from Google

When I moved to Baton Rouge just under a year ago I had no clue about the area or where to live and not to live. My first thought was downtown as I'm a young professional who also enjoys running. I stumbled upon Lake Towers and immediately felt at home. From my first visit the staff made me feel at home and welcomed. I love my apartment, while it's from the 1970s, it has been updated and I love the old time Spanish town charm. I'm within walking distance of great museums and entertainment. The view from my apt is amazing. Access to the community is quick and easy since it is right off the interstate. I never hear my neighbors or surrounding area. The community is clean and my neighbors are an eclectic group of good people. I can't say enough good things about the staff - Robin is just a ball of energy that is always welcoming, the manager is very friendly and helpful, and the maintenance team is efficient and courteous. I love my home and will stay for as long as possible!


By Curtis Harrison, Aug 08, 2016 from Google

The location and covered parking were the biggest selling points for me. Right on the edge of Downtown B.R. with immediate access to the interstate. The view of the lake and the state capitol building are great. The property management was very responsive to requests that I made. I researched many apartment complexes in Baton Rouge. Lake Towers was the best combination of amenities, price, security and service.


By joyjoy70301, Oct 30, 2015 from Google

I love the location. It's very quit here, and everyone basically minds their own business.


By joy70301, Oct 14, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

They are remodeling, which is a good thing. It's quiet here, good location. Everyone basically minds their own business.


By kskywlk, Aug 31, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

Lake Towers has been a great experience so far. My one bedroom apartment is very comfy and I'm literally close to everything since its located downtown! I would definitely recommend Lake Towers to anyone looking for a good deal. Rent is reasonable!

Living at Lake Towers has been great so far. Great views and you can walk to everything in downtown. The rent is reasonable considering the location. Management has been good to deal with. I'm not understanding the person who said the pool is dirty - it's not. Yes it's an older building and will have some maintenance challenges (so far I haven't) but seriously, a little perspective: you're in a mid/high-rise building in downtown for under $1000/month.


By Jason Dumas, Aug 30, 2015 from Google

Clean, spacious, friendly and efficient management -- having a great apartment like this one has made the move to Baton Rouge even smoother than expected! 6/26/14 Still loving Lake Towers. Great location, very friendly people, and the staff is very polite as well. Any issues I have had in my apartment were quickly taken care of by maintenence. Great people working at Lake Towers but I would love for the elevator to be fixed. Becomes a pain when carrying groceries or anything really up to your apartment. All is well.

By rooneyvegas, Aug 27, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

Lake Towers has been great since I moved in. You get the real urban experience of downtown here and the apartments have amazing views. You can walk to downtown. Office staff is very helpful and nice to deal with. Solid building so you really can't hear your neighbors when you're in the apartment, but very social atmosphere when you step outside.


By Megan T., Jul 23, 2015 from Apartments

Absolutely loved it here! Lake towers is seriously the best! Never had any problems and the downtown Baton Rouge environment is amazing. Nothing but great things to say for this whole year I've been here!


By xavierO, Apr 16, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

Love my apartment, i feels safe and secured....the landlords are all great and nice...they even know my son by his first and nickname that means a lot to me


By bkc9401, Mar 13, 2015 from Apartment Ratings

I enjoyed living at Lake Towers. Management was courteous and effective. They were eager to assist. It was a very nice community with an optimal location within minutes from the downtown night life.


By retyi43, Sep 23, 2014 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived here for a year now, and I have had a great experience with the staff, residents and building itself. The only issue I had was with my A/C going out earlier this year, and maintenance fixed it within a few hours of me reporting the problem. As far as the residents, they are mostly quiet working people. I have never had any problems with neighbors being too loud and have never seen anyone doing anything questionable or illegal around the complex. I think these apartments are a fantastic value given the location, covered parking, and washer/dryer in every unit.


By Shayna A. Pitre, Aug 31, 2014 from Google

I absolutely love living here. I am a law student and wanted a quiet place to live. This is the perfect place. The walls on each side are concrete so I do not hear my neighbors. There is a house being built close by so occasionally I will hear some construction workers, but this would be anywhere I live, as houses need to be built! It does not bother me at all, and the house is beautiful. As for management, we have a new team, and they are amazing. If there is a problem, it is fixed ASAP. They are friendly and courteous. I love them. As for location, it is nearby the capital, 2 parks, 2 libraries, plenty of museums, restaurants, bars, and cultural events. There is a farmer's market every Saturday a few blocks away. There is also a local running club that meets nearby on Tuesday nights, which I have been meaning to join. During parts of the year, there is "Live After Five", a series of free outdoor concerts downtown on Fridays. The Shaw Center is nearby, where there are many plays. If I was not in law school, I would be living it up. Every so often I take a break to explore! Also, it is affordable given we are in the Spanish Town location. It is for sure the best bang for your buck in this area (rent is very pricy in Spanish Town, but not here.). There is a gym, with cable TV, and a pool here also. The gym is a little small, but it has a treadmill, elliptical, a small bike, and free weights, with one or two weight machines. If you prefer a bigger gym, there is a YMCA a few blocks away. I am a member there and I love it! Overall, this is a good place to live.


By Suzie H, Aug 30, 2014 from Google

I have been living at Lake Towers for seven months now. What's not to love? The location is perfect. Since moving in I've walked to the farmer's market, the Shaw Arts center, and to the Capitol Building (which being on the top floor I get a great view). At New Year's I watched the fireworks from my 1-bedroom that faces downtown. During Baton Rouge's biggest parade, I was so close I could see where the floats turn the corner heading down 9th Street. You have Capitol Lake on the 3-bedroom side and the Governor's Mansion (yep, he really does live there and from time to time you'll see his helicopter land). I have no intention of leaving any time soon. All love affairs have their downsides. The pool is small and located at the back of the property as well as the bar-b-que grills. There is a white noise from being so close to I-110. The workout room is small. None of these were deterrents for me. For me the selling point..."location, location, location."


By Jose Silgado, Aug 30, 2014 from Google

I've lived in Lake Towers since 2008. Although there were a few rocky times (AC breaking down for a month last summer), it has been a pretty stable and enjoyable living space. The apartment itself, a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment, has been enough space for myself and my pet. Although there were a few oddities (a closet in the living room for example), I've had no real problems living here. The walls seem to be pretty thick because my apartment has always been quiet and I've never had any problems at all with noise. I also like that it's right next to a park and lake where I have been able to go jogging or biking without having to drive anywhere. Also, since it's right next to the downtown area, some nights I've been able to walk over to the bars downtown with friends without fear of driving or paying extra for a taxi. Overall, not a bad living experience.


By Theresa Rodden, Aug 30, 2014 from Google

I work in an office all day. I do love my apartment. I have everything there I need- pool, gym, etc on the outside. My apartment is very spacious, breezy, and full of light. Wish I utilized those luxuries more, but after working all day, I am a big fan of the location. It is a beautiful place... the drive home in itself makes me smile. I am close to so many places to go and things to do.
