    5/5 Mike C. on Oct 15, 2020

    Wonderful and great looking place to stay. Really quiet neighborhood. Had a problem with noise from other tenants above me but called the front desk staff and they were very courteous with listening to my complaint and handled the situation very positively and efficiently.

    I mistakenly scored Autumn Park apartments with a zero in error. This place ROCKS! I misunderstood what I was scoring.

    5/5 Isaac on Aug 1, 2022

    Magnolia Heights has a great staff that will work with you, on whatever issue may arise. They were responsive, kind, and helped us make our apartment our home. The unit was absolutely stunning, and you could not beat the location. The perfect mix of being close to downtown, while enjoying a taste of suburbia.

    5/5 Angela R. on Jul 9, 2022
