Jan 2019: I have lived here for 2 years and happy with the decision. The cottages are a great property and the staff is happy to help with anything that comes up. Have met many friends here and would recommend it to anyone. Review from Google
Jan 2019: The pool is definitely one of my favorite parts about the Cottages! Maintenance is very good about responding to issues. Everyone in the office is super helpful and friendlyThe managers in general are also very quick at responding and always there to help! Overall, I definitely recommend living here! Review from Google
Dec 2018: Love all the staff, they make me feel welcome and at home! Couldn’t be happier with my decision with the Cottages. Review from Google
Dec 2018: The staff make the whole moving process so easy! Best staff in a housing company in all of Arizona Review from Google
Nov 2018: Bad, bad, bad. 1 star is too many.
I've never felt compelled to write a scathing review of anyone, until now. These people pressured my daughter into signing a lease, even when the information on the lease was incorrect. They had not done a financial report (she has no assets or net worth) and she had no agreement for co-signature. Because the lease info was incorrect, my daughter was not even eligible to live at the Cottages of Tempe. The Cottages of Tempe folks have now attempted to extort money from my daughter via a collection agency, and as absurd as this sounds, without any signatures or discussion with me or my wife about cosigning her lease, they have the same collection agency trying to to get us to pay for the supposed lease. They say we owe them $9000 dollars. Of course I will have to dispute this and deal with the credit agency Review from Google
Oct 2018: Love here! The staff is super friendly and when I was stuck in a parking spot a guy from corporate came and helped me moved it with no questions asked. Also it is a super friendly environment and a great way to make more friends Review from Google
Aug 2018: Absolute worst place I have ever lived. They put charges on your account with absolutely no reason. They take years to get back to you, lose a lot of important documents. The extra amenities are always broken. The owners and managers are childish and are very disrespectful. Review from Google
Jun 2018: Lived here for 2 years and absolutely loved it. I had a balcony that overlooked the pool which was always a stunning view. I loved having free tanning beds and laying out at the pool. Although it is about a mile away from campus, the shuttle was extremely useful so I didn't have to look for / pay for parking on campus. I have never met so many people and felt involved in a tight knit community as much as I did while living here. I would recommend The Cottages to all ASU students looking for a home away from home while they're at school. Review from Google
Jun 2018: Easily the best place in Tempe to stay while attending ASU. Unlike the typical student housing in Tempe, instead of apartments these are more like townhomes. The shuttle that drops off on campus saved me a ton of money on parking during my 2 year stay here. Some of my best college memories have been made at The Cottages and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere to live after their freshman year at the dorms. Review from Google
Jun 2018: I love it! It is a home away from home. I love the friendly staff and how there is valet trash! HOW COOL IS THAT!? Best decision! Review from Google
May 2018: There are so many things wrong with this place. First of all, it’s dirty and disgusting. Even the houses are built poorly! Door frames are lopsided! Also the towing/parking situation is horrible! When you get a parking permit, you have to park on the other side of the building which is a journey! Then if your permit is incorrect at the slightest bit, be prepared to get towed. Do not ever come here or move here. Review from Google
Mar 2018: Lovelovelove this place! I couldn't have chosen a better place to live. Seriously take the Cottages into consideration to live at Review from Google
Mar 2018: The staff is super helpful and very accommodating. Great place to live! Review from Google
Feb 2018: I live in a 5 bedroom cottage with my friends and it’s amazing. Spacious and clean. Amenities are useful. Staff is always helpful and understanding. Way better than the dorms and less expensive too. People always complain about the limited guest parking but that’s because majority of them are reserved for actual residents. I love it here and renewed. Definitely check this place out! Review from Google
Feb 2018: Excellent Location! and the staff that I worked with [ Wendy & Sydney ] were extremely accommodating and helpful when I came to tour. Review from Google
Feb 2018: This place is beautiful and it's tons of fun for college students who are social and want to make friends! I highly recommend living here! :) Review from Google
Nov 2017: I have lived at The Cottages of Tempe for 3 years now—if that tells you anything at all. I was drawn to living here Fall 2015 as it was so much cheaper than where I lived at the time. I actually broke my lease after 2 months at the other apartment and signed a new one with The Cottages. I lived half a mile from campus at the time (which seems more appealing) but the thought of walking 10 minutes to class in AZ heat is disgusting in comparison to The Cottages who pick up their residents at their doorstep and drop them off nearly in front of their classes. Plus, where else offers a little community neighborhood with a bunch of your friends as neighbors? This past spring I did try to move somewhere else and experience something new, but after some looking around, I realized The Cottages was the best deal for student housing in Tempe so I stayed Review from Google
Nov 2017: Really fun and social place. Management is really easy to work with and they try to provide a relaxing environment to residents. I would definitely recommend The Cottages to anyone looking to live off campus. Review from Google
Nov 2017: The Cottages is great! I love the space, love the community & the free food always given! The shuttle is also amazzzzing and just feels like home here so love the property!! Review from Google
Oct 2017: Just terrible. Good social environment for the first few weeks of living during the day. At night you will get fined and guests have to get parking passes anytime after 9pm online. Friend stayed till 10pm and got car towed and had to pay +$150. Several amenities did not work or function properly for a span of several weeks including hot tub, sauna, and some of the machines in the weight room, which is lacking to start with. Had a registered party with the office and three people were seen on camera at 1130 sharing a drink, not being loud, while you're not aloud to be outside after 11 and each roommate was fined $100. Nobody had called in a complaint but management saw on the cameras those people standing there. Although it seems that people are very trigger happy when callimg in complaints. There is dog poop on most of the grass patches that a Review from Google
Oct 2017: Terrible
Pass on this one
Do notwaste your time or money
Sep 2017: Perfect for ASU students! It is very community oriented and the staff is very friendly. Loved living here the past 2 years! Review from Google
May 2017: Hands down the worst living community for college students. While they may try to make the place seem nice with their amenities and occasional food in the clubhouse, they are running a corrupt system with the towing company to profit for themselves. Even though the property is gated with PLENTY of free and open spaces for guests to park at any time of the day, they have a towing truck in there at all hours ready to take your car from you at the slightest mistake. I accidentally parked 2 spaces away in an empty guest spot than the one I was assigned, and in the morning came out to find my car was gone.

May 2017: My living at The Cottages was cut short due to a surgery. But it is a beautifulsafe and fun complex. Has everything a student needs, including transportation to school. Would live there again!

Feb 2017: Great community for ASU students! The amenities are awesome, management has really stepped up recently and has made this place the best place to live in Tempe! 100% recommend!
