“Worst Place Ever....Police with assault rifles arrive”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Why didn't I check this out on Trip Advisor first.... When we first arrived sent to condo that smelled terible, saw the kitchen and we were out of there and back at the desk asking for a different room. Next one no smell but still not very clean and now one room double bed other 2 singles. Had been told would be 2 doubles, John at the desk who runs the place "lady I can't give you perfection" Pots and pans should have been thrown out. We went out and bought our own. Plus cooking utensils were filthy. Bought those as well.
The last night we were there 4 policeman 2 with assault rifles show up to check out some sort of disturbance in the condo next to us. The reaction at the front desk when I told them "oh that's not one of the condos we rent". They had a pat answer for eveything, never an apology . Please don't ever stay there.

Moving truck was stolen the first night there. We were told they had security cameras, they even post that they do. You can see them. They did NOT tell us the police (who FREQUENT this place, check with Surprise Police Dept) have been asking them for years to fix the cameras.

Got out as quickly as possible (found another rental). It was also smelly, old & dirty furnishings, broken appliances.

This place should be shut down!!!

We rented a one-bedroom unit for a week at a very reasonable price. The unit itself was ok; everything worked fine but the big issue was noise through very 'thin' walls. If you're not a light sleeper you'll do fine. We had to keep the HVAC fan on all night so we would not hear tvs and talking from another unit all night. Yes, ALL night. For a week. It could be we were next to the one person that needed to have the tv on all night for some reason. It wasn't real loud and not like a party going on, but just enough to keep you awake. The place could use some paint, and the furniture was well worn, but you get what you pay for.

The management was very friendly and helpful and the location great as we were looking at property in Sun City West. Next time we go to SCW we'll pay more for a different place, but hopefully be able to sleep better.

The place smelled so badly we had to keep the doors and windows open all day to get rid of the smell. The bathrooms were filthy . There were fruit flies all over the kitchen and living room. The windows were full of dirt and grime. I would never recommend this place to anyone. Worst experience we have ever had.

My husband and I plus our two cats just relocated to Surprise from Michigan. I found the lodge at Sunridge on the internet. We moved in june 19th 2009, we love it, our unit is very nice and it is clean. We have a two bed two bath, hey don't listen to the bad reviews they are not true. We plan to live here for about a year, until we buy a home. We have brand new furniture in our unit and even the two bedrooms have a TV, and sliders to the balcony. I have a washer and dryer in my unit, what more could you ask for. Internet, cable and landline phone all bills included, for $1017 per month. Oh we large walk in closets also. If you come to Surprise stay at Sunridge you will be glad you did.

We stayed for one week at the Lodge at Sunridge. We did no research on this property as we joined friends to play some very inexpensive basic golf available to the public no real advanced booking needed on 8 different Sun City Courses. They are flat very wide and forgiving and you can walk them all a real plus for the Phoenix area. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and fast play very much.

Now to the Lodge what a shock. This is basically one of those low rent ghettos would not be so bad if it was not over $90 per night.

They do let you take the keys for as many suites as you like till you find one you would like. We took number 324 I beleive near Bell road a one bedroom

Cons very shabby dusty carpet this was built in 1987 and has not seen any updating since, rose carpet,. bathroom falling apart. Cleanings between guests are just adequate, not the corners.
Lots of permanent residence with little dogs, they do not leave messes but they yap when you take the stairs. The management made no attempt to fix the fridge. We just used our friends had we been alone we would have insisted on moving. so be warned check everything before you move in. No glamor here like one of those places you used take in desperation when you moved to a new town before the internet.

Pros. New towels, new china, fairly well equipped kitchen for light meals, pool is clean and warm. There was always parking and no road noise. We are not high end travellers but this was just not acceptable for the money. read my other reviews from all over the world I travel often review sometimes when I have something to say that has not been said on Trip Advisor.

  • Liked — The towels and china
  • Disliked — worn out grubby apartment
