“Not worth the money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

First and for most let me say that the apartments themselves are very beautiful, the grounds are well kept and the view (which was poolside) is not at all bad. The rooms are spacious, the kitchens very large with lost of storage. Always plenty of parking in the parking garage. However the staff at this corporate/residential apartment community are some of the most rude and fake people I have ever met. They will start off nice wanting to help you with your every need, till they can't benefit from you anymore. Always having to call around 3 or 4 times for them to take the rent out on time. If the rent is late which is due on the 1st of the month (with no grace period according to them but you have till the 5th of the month to pay) you are charged a $100.00 late fee. So them always taking the rent out late can cause problems. Overall nice place, atrocious staff and the staff pretty much makes the place.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012 via mobile

After the first week of a stay expected to last several months, the customer representatives are an outstanding help and very nice. The units are fairly good sized, impersonal decorations are a downside. I'd feel much more comfortable if they didn't try so hard for an overly contemporary look. The kitchen is nicely appointed. The beds are as comfortable as Marriott. They put me in a first floor room right across from a large construction project, so I constantly have the construction crew walking around outside the window during the day along with a terrible view. The breakfast leaves much to be desired. The gym is passable. The apt. is in an area that feels very industrial.

In summary, I've seen extended stay apartments offer much more in all areas except for the bedding and service, which were outstanding. Next time, I'd look for something that offers more amenities, a more classic decor, a better location, and a better breakfast if the prices were comparable. If the other place was a dime more, I'd stay here again.

If you’re looking to spend more money in exchange for garbage accommodations then you picked the right place. All I have to say is check out any other extended living lodging in the area and you will find much more for less. Anyone who gave this place a rating higher than a 1 obviously has not been here in a while. The breakfast is worthless and mostly out-of-stock, the internet is worse than dial-up, you are lucky to see maids every other week, the walls/ceilings are made of paper and the list could go one. I did my employer a favor by sticking it out here but that mistake will never happen again.

Room Tip: Heres a tip - don't choose a room from this buisness

We have been living in Ave dulles for a yearr now.The apartments are beautiful.Some staff members are unfriendly.The rent are highly priced.They offer breakfast the quality of which is going down day by day.The lady at the clubroom gives a stare when you pick something to eat and keeps saying they are out of stock all the time.Would not renew my lease if this is what they offer after charging high rents.So please consider this before you make a decision

I was placed into the AKA for aprox one month for work. It is a newer facility about 5-7 minutes from IAD. There are not enough great things to say about my experiance here. The rooms were beautiful. The full kicthen with the stainless steel everything and the granite countertops was great to cook in. All the cooking utensils were provided for you, but if in fact you came across something that was needed, the staff was more than willing to accomodate. The rooms were spacious with flat screen TVs and plush beds. The bathrooms were also all granite with large garden tubs to soak in. The best part of the this place was the staff who went out of their way for us. The took the time to get to know name and places and even through events to get the hotel guests together to meet eachother and unwind. Covered parking with coffee and rolls in the morning. Would reccomend for long term stay. As I was leaving, they were in the process of opening a restuarnt/bar next door which will make it that much better.
