submitted by Nicole A. - |Recommended: YesReview — Good
submitted by Tania M. - |Recommended: YesHappy Living in Madison at Ballston — I want to thank you all for your attention, prompt services and care of the building. I can only say great things about the staff and the sustained quality of the management. It's a great place to live
submitted by Aimee M. - |Recommended: YesEasy living at the Madison — The Madison is a comfortable place to live with all of the amenities you need. Great size gym, free coffee, computer room, pool, fire pit, etc. Easy 20 minute walk to the metro and about a 10 minute walk to Harris Teeter or CVS. Staff and residents are very friendly. Apartments are well insulated and can hardly hear your next door neighboy. I often hear the upstairs neighbor walking around, but that's expected with apartment living. Other than that it's a very quiet community.
submitted by John V. - |Recommended: YesGreat place for the money — You are just too far from the night action so you will be Ubering most of the time. The staff is very nice as well as all the amenities free coffee during certain hours. I often use the gym because it has plenty of machines and can be sufficient enough for the average fitness goer. The main problem I have is how thing the floor and ceilings are. The walls are no problem, I have never once heard my neighbors adjacent to us. However, very often I heard people walking above us which is not a real issue until the downstairs neighbors begin to report you for living life normally. Great place to live but make sure you get on good terms with the people below you and if you do live here, you will hear noise get used to it.
submitted by Brian L. - |Recommended: YesPerfect Location. Friendly Staff. Great Space and Amenities. Pet Friendly — Has a perfect location where you are close enough to nightlife, but not right on top of it all. Very friendly staff that will help you with anything and keeps the place in top condition. The apartment is a great space and has top of the line amenities. Perfect place to have a dog, with plenty of grass to let them run around.
submitted by Michael M. - |Recommended: YesNoise — Neighbors have loud music until late night hours during the week.
submitted by Inga E. - |Recommended: YesI love how this complex is community centric. Beautiful layouts and landscaping. Dog friendly. — I love living here. The Parking can be a bit bothersome as you need a parking sticker to park in the garage, however there is some street parking which helps. As far as noise goes, I am on the second floor and I can hear the people above us stomping around loudly every day which is annoying. Overall I would recommend living here. The location is amazing and staff are very friendly and helpful.
submitted by Twila - |Recommended: YesOur favorite apartment we've ever lived — From the location to both downtown Ballston businesses and proximity to main highways like 50 and 395, to a pet friendly playground nearby, to the covered parking, to the intuitive layout of the apartments and AMAZING storage closet this is hands down the best apartment we've ever lived in. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the construction of the building is solid. Would highly recommend

submitted by Bianca A. - |Recommended: YesThis property has quickly felt like home during our first 6 months here. — Living at Madison at Ballston Station has been a friendly experience. From the moment we met Eric he welcomed us into the building and did an excellent job showing us around. Ever since then, anytime Eric comes across us he greets us and takes a moment to talk to us. All other staff has been just as welcoming during our first 6 months here by introducing themselves. The building itself is in a really great location and we enjoy walking to the park, restaurants, and the grocery store.
submitted by Carley L. - |Recommended: NoFrustrating — Odd layout w limited access to one side of the building especially if freight elevator is out , constant missing packages at front desk, disorganized and aloof staff with the exception of Paula and Kevin, they are awesome and lack of communication with any email inquiries and issues,amentities often in disrepair coffee, computers and printers , packages, front desk people often unhelpful and total disregard for security, etc. dumpster in garage is always overflowing and disgusting. Super thin walls and floors for a brand new building. Building allows smoking The first floor smells like a 1980's lounge, so disgusting.

submitted by Kara F. - |Recommended: YesPerfect home to come home to — I've lived at the Madison at Ballston Station with my partner for over a year now and we could not have dreamed of a better home. We moved from CT so we knew that the rent from what we were used to paying would increase significantly due to the area, but out of all the places we looked at this property was by FAR the nicest with the best accommodations parking, pool, fitness center, etc., and was actually the cheapest. The property is beautiful and I love how the building always smells like you just walked into a spa. It is clean, and the landscape is just beautiful, especially in the summer and spring. When we first moved into our apartment we did run into some issues with the staff, but thankfully all has been resolved and for the most part many of them are very friendly. The ONLY issue I have had was with my upstairs neighbor. Unfortunately I live on the third out of four floors and he is extremely noisy which is quite bothersome. So if you can get a good neighbor above you or live on the 4th floor then you should be good. I would most definitely recommend looking into this apartment complex if you're looking for a home in the DMV area We just signed our year 2 lease and are extremely happy to continue to still call this place home.
submitted by Whitney A. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — I have been really happy here the past 5 1 2 months. Besides some excessive noise from my upstairs neighbor in the beginning every else is great
submitted by Alexander C. - |Recommended: NoLuxurious, in price and design — Good quality buildings, overall a great place to live, but the utility companies you're forced to use are a bit of a hassle to deal with and some of the cabinets and whatnot in the apartments feels a bit low quality.
