is disappointing what a HORRIBLE experience we have had with Dorchester Apartments. We have had 36 mice in the last year and a half.

We have had THOUSANDS of cockroaches. Let me be clear, these are pictures of mice and cockroaches below that we've seen in the last TWO DAYS.

I've lived other places in Northern Virginia and have dealt with routine pests before, never have I seen situations like what we have experienced at Dorchester Apartments.

We have had mice crawling on us, we have had cockroaches fall in our food. We have had mice squeaking all night long while we were trying to sleep. We've pulled dead mice off of our sheets.

We have had 5 pest control agencies investigate our apartment, the first 4 were through Dorchester, the last told us that there were CLEAR HOLES in our wall that they should have fixed a long time ago. We are very clean people. We have air-tight containers, we have a roomba, and we clean weekly. At this moment we have rat poop next to a hole near our radiator and no one has come to pick this up, despite us sending pictures specifying where the issue was.

This doesn't even include the fact that our ceiling has caved in during our time here.

After two years of being nice, and waiting, and being patient, and allowing Dorchester Apartments to take whatever measures they wanted. They have given us ZERO financial compensation for our problem. We are a teacher and a medical student. It feels like they have taken advantage of our kindness

Awesome for Socializing... and good Metro location
The building is quite nice and relatively quite for the area since this particular building has very few renters and therefore not much of a young party crowd compared to many in Clarendon/Ballston. Right below the building, however has many of the best bars/restaurants in Clarendon within 2-5 blocks. Friends would come to our house to pre-game and post-game it was so close. Proximity to the Metro, whole foods, and shopping meant that my new wife and I were able to dump our second car - this helped us pay for the rent which was commensurate with the amenities (read: expensive). We had lived further out for cheaper, but the proximity was the worth the increase in price.

Good area!
Active, educated young populace.

Great location for new grads
I lived in the Lincoln Court townhouses for 3 years. The management was great, the apartments were new construction and in fantastic shape. My only dig against the apartments and Arlington in general is that people often keep to themselves and there's no real sense of community. In addition, Clarendon is full of 'bros and generally feels like college 2.0. It was great while I lived there, but grew out of it after a few years.

Lived in the Clarendon apts
Loved the convenience and neighborhood. Old management used to have freshly baked chocolate chip cookies every day after work. Heard new management has increased rent and removed cookies, though...

Courthouse Hill Condominiums
Very popular condo complex in great area of Arlington (close to shopping, nightlife, metro, but set off from main traffic). Well recognized upon opening in late 90s, a bit older now but still one of the best around.

Belvedere Condos
Rosslyn is a great central location, two metro lines, across the river from DC, easy access to all highways and many big DC companies have offices in this neighborhood. As a primarily work-focused neighborhood, most restaurants here are chain lunches (Chipotle, Subway, Quiznos), but there are a couple of staples for happy hours (Cafe Asia, Continental Pool Lounge, and Piola).

Archstone Courthouse Place
This is one of three Archstone properties within a block of this metro, and is likely the most affordable. Great amenities, across from the metro, and walkable to DC's best steak restaurant and many Arlington hotspots. Only issue is Archstone is notorious for huge rent increases once they get you in their building.

Great Area
The location is fabulous for folks working in and around the DC metro area. Easy access to subway (orange line), convenient to both airports (DCA and IAD), and much cheaper/more space than most of DC. You are never more than a 10min cab ride into Georgetown too!

Great alternative to DT DC
We moved to Pentagon City for the lower taxes. The Gramercy was a great deal (much cheaper than other VA suburbs) and in a great location. It was walkable to the metro, and less congested than the city.

Best location in DC
This was the perfect location between Dupont, Georgetown, and Foggy Bottom. The downside is that it was expensive and rampant with GU kids. 2400M was a nice building, but they were increasing prices like crazy, and the GU kids were tripling-up in the rooms.
