Excellent location. Great, convenient covered parking. Very nice furnished apartment. Great for a student from out-of-state with no interest in hauling in furniture. Price is not cheap but seems worth the price.
By Jon Shimabukuro, July 25, 2018
From a parents standpoint this was a great place for our UW student to live. Management keeps the apartments in great shape. They monitor tenants to make sure everyone is respectful of other tenants. Security is great. I have seen them usher out people who should not have access in common areas. Elana Ainsley the property manager does an excellent job of overseeing the bldg. We had some problems with a sublet and she was understanding in that many of her tenants are young adults who are just learning the mishaps that can happen. She amazingly assisted in helping resolve problem. It has been a great experience and would highly recommend the Lucky complex

I needed short term summer housing (which can be challenging to find), and Lucky had just what I needed. Ashley worked with me to make the lease term what I needed, and to find an apartment within my budget! The other staff (such as Alan who showed me the units) were also very friendly and helpful.

Nice overall. But today, WiFi service is down from 4pm until 1am and is still not fixed, which lasts more than 9 hours. Hope this can get fixed much quicker.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. Melissa fixed my door lock during the winter break when literally nobody is around! RJ is the guy who always get a warm smile on his face. Literally every staff I meet is professional and welcoming.

Great apartment! Staff is always available and helpful, and bonus point is they also provide help to take care of your plant (or fish, etc) when you are away! Thanks to RJ for taking great care of my plants during winter break!!!

I have lived at Lucky for a semester now, and my overall experience has been very positive. The location is perfect for short walks to the grocery store, class, and many other places. The Dorm at Lucky program has been great, especially due to Michaela and Kelsey's involvement in planning and hosting events on our floor. They are both invested in their residents and are willing to help whenever needed! I would highly recommend living at Lucky.

The location is fantastic. Biggest disappointment was the welcome week early move in for freshman hype. The RAs are friendly but here are some suggestions. They could have organized an intentional, structured week of small group games, activities and team bonding events. They could have organized a sign up for simple cooking lessons for students. They could have taken the students to devils lake since they advertised it as the best part of the week (it wasnt on the final schedule...instead it was some other activity and most of the freshman skipped it). If they can incorporate these changes to their welcome week, I would give them 5 stars. Finding a close community as early as possible can be one of the most important factors in a college first year experience.

The staff are mostly very very friendly. I love the staff. However, living here for so long, whenever they have works (renovations etc) on the apartment, they absolutely take no consideration of the neighbors and do whatever they want, which includes making super loud noise in the early morning. Very noise to live here.

Lucky apartment is definitely a great place to live. Comparing to other newer apartments around here, the amenities might seems a little old, however, it's the service that are extraordinary and much better than others. E.g. 24 hour concierge desk is helpful whenever things happen. Above that, staff in the leasing office are extra friendly. Carly and Alan are always there to help us with packages or other apartment related issues. Carly is also doing a great job remembering many of the residents' names. It couldn't be better since I don't need to tell them my apartment number and name every time I get my packages.

To whom it May concern Malissa Mccown is a such a warm and sweet person I met in this apartment . She made me felt so home as I visit my Chinese friend here. Her loving welcome and thoughtful guidance is deeply appreciated. If possible, I will introduce other Chinese friends coming here. God bless your buisiness! Ting .

The apartment itself had a great view, but it is showing obvious signs of wear. Upon moving in, the apartment was not cleaned and my bedroom smelled horrible. The "painting" was sloppy, cabinets were hanging off hinges, dust was everywhere, and my shower had an abhorrent amount of mold. After filling out a very detailed inspection form, a portion of my deposit was still withheld from their lack of care when preparing the apartment in the first place. After having many roommates move in and out with little notice, relying on internet and cable that was anything but, and a real lack of amenities.. I decided to bite my last few month's rent and get another apartment. Lucky was a total waste of money. Young professionals-- steer VERY clear. Students-- Go to the Hub. Only gave two stars because the office/desk staff are extremely friendly and do what they can to help.

Have been living with Lucky for the past year and have always been impressed with the level of quality of both the complex and staff members. The building is gorgeous to say the least. Being connected to a grocery store through a hallway and a Walgreens via the underground parking garage, one never needs to go out into the bitter Wisconsin winter to get living needs. Living two blocks away from State Street has allowed me to have the full Madison experience that everyone deserves. Plus, the bus stop directly across the street has almost every bus line come to it, so no need to walk a mile to get to your bus. Also, with living arrangements for incoming freshman and transfer students, everyone can get the fun and immersive dorm experience with your own kitchen and bathroom for usually cheaper than the costs of a dorm (I know, unbelievable but I have done the math). While maintanance requests are a common complaint with apartments, I personally have never waited more than 24 hours for a request to be fulfilled...with most being done the same day I called the front desk. I can't say enough about the place. Between the location, building quality, and staff members, you can't go wrong.
