SLUM, currently trying to break my lease, this place is not worth the money; they have you sign a 43 page lease agreement stating you cannot sue them (very bad sign). My utility check; $96.30 was cashed for $9,630.00, contacted the police and recovered the money. There was no explanation. There is no fitness room or sauna, those are in disrepair. There is asbestos in the ceiling (health violation told to me by the maintenance worker) water leaks into my apartment from the upstairs deck, they have not fixed it in six months and after repairs the leak is worse (building code violation). The bathroom sink leaks through the sink itself, the kitchen sink leaks from everywhere, the disposal is crudely wired under the sink and not at a junction box, when water leaks on it, it shorts out tripping the breaker (building code violation and safety hazard), fixtures are cheap and glued to the walls, mold is leaching through the paint from previous water leaks and poorly repaired (health code violation), exterior walls are wet and soft from exterior water leaks (building code violation), we have roaches which I have tried to kill, there are rats living in the walls I see their droppings and a hole chewed behind the oven (health code violation), the living room ceiling is bowing more than three inches (structural building code violation and safety hazard). Garbage piles up at the garbage compactor every weekend as they shut it off (no clue why, health code violation). Walls and floors are thin; we can hear everything the neighbors do. There is a crime committed here weekly (spotcrime.com). I sat in the manager’s office several times and listened to ALL tenants complain of the same issue. Yet, they continue to raise rent.

The apartment complex is adequate, the management and parent company Leland Enterprises are abysmal. After a water leak forced our son and his three room-mates out of the apartment the management felt no obligation to help find alternative housing and after a week still had not repaired the apartment so they could move back in. They had no interest in the students well being or helping resolve the issue. When the manager was asked who the parent company was he said "You figure it out".

DO NOT MOVE HERE! I REPEAT, DO NOT MOVE HERE! I live here now and it has been an absolutely miserable experience since I moved in over two months ago. Every pipe in my apartment has leaked and flooded my floors. The office is slow to help if they do at all. The apartment itself is under kept. Closet doors hardly work, windows and doors don't close all the way (letting in insects), and the floors, bathtub, and appliances are all cracked, chipped, and curiously discolored. They demolished the pool, there's hardly ever parking in the lot, the laundry machines eat your quarters, the gym key doesn't open the door, the walls are paper thin and ceilings/floors are very loud and creaky, and apartment wide power goes out for hours without warning. I email the office with a new problem weekly, almost never with any response. It is apparent that the staff does not care about their tenants at all other than to get our money.
My apartment has now flooded 5 times. I've yet to actually use my entire apartment at one time. They may take up to a week to fix the pipes and they will not clean up the flooding. The bathroom sink has flooded twice into my bedroom through the wall. Their refusal to clean up their mess caused me to get mold poisoning the first time. After a week of complaining about not being able to sleep in the apartment I pay for, they finally sent a cleaner. This time (as my bedroom currently has sitting water) it has been over a week and they said they would send someone to no avail. I've had property damaged, had to spend an exorbitant amount on items to clean up their mess and cover the mold stench, and had to miss work several times to clean up or wait for their maintenance people.
This apartment has been a miserable waste of money. If I weren't stuck in a lease, I would be gone in a heartbeat. I'd give them 0 stars if I could.

DO NOT RENT at ICON at 2900 aka SAHARA PALMS APARTMENTS. DON’T LET THE NAME CHANGE FOOL YOU! WORST APARTMENTS IN VEGAS! GREYSTAR IS THE WORST MANAGEMENT COMPANY ON PLANET EARTH!
Check out these links:
The people who live above me are demons from hell. The two noisiest 400 lbs fat bastards as you can hear in the recording I’ve made. They never stop making noise 24/7. They never sleep. They must be on drugs. Three other people in other apartments have left because of them. I never have a peaceful moment in my home. I will be moving soon. I’m really upset about it too. I really like the location and my apartment is cool in the summer. It’s sad these inconsiderate people have to ruin for me and other tenants. In the end the fat bastards are going to cost me money$$. These fat bastards are so noisy, that they wake me up every single night/morning even though I wear 50 decibel ear plugs. I estimate the noise levels in my apartment reach in excess of 100 decibels at times. The fat bastards have a habit of turning on the dishwasher at 4 or 5am. The dishwasher is located up against the wall adjacent to my bedroom and the noise shoots down through my walk in closet which is a natural speaker box and actually amplifies the sounds. The dumb fat asses don’t turn the knob on the dishwasher until the water starts filling it, so it vibrates for 10 minutes until it starts to fill with water. I’m suffering from Tinnitus as a result of all this. They’re so fat that when they walk across my ceiling, my ceiling fan shakes, which you can see in my video. About every 3 minutes, something that sounds like a bowling ball crashes on the floor. I can time it on my watch. The 5am whale baths are the worst. I can hear they’re 4-foot-wide asses squeaking up against the 2-foot-wide bath tub porcelain. GROSS!! Do the math, they don’t fit!!
I’ve played these recording for all the managers. There’s been many. They change about every 3 months or so. It always starts and ends the same way. At first they’re reaction is, “What are they doing up there?” Then once they contact the fat bastards, they always cry they’re disabled. The only disability I see I that they can’t walk upright, because they weigh 400 lbs, but they’re able to carry heavy bottles of soda and doggy bags from the buffet. They don’t fool me….
Greystar managers have gone as far as trying to convince me that it’s their cat making the noise and accused me of being close minded for not buying their BS stories. Greystar has offered to move me to another apartment, but it always involves me paying an extra $250-$600 extra in nonrefundable transfer fees. I always say why should I pay extra because Greystar isn’t willing to do anything to resolve the situation and sold me a defective uninhabitable apartment. Maybe I should report them to the health department because the noise levels are a danger to one’s health! They’ve never once tried to do the right thing by me in any instance. All I get is excuses, never solutions. I’ve even contacted the CEO of Greystar, who’s even a bigger idiot than they’re leasing people!
I have many other complaints, but I’ll let you read the other peoples one star reviews. They’re all accurate…….

I love The Branbury! My apartment is great, and I love my roommates. There are always lots of fun activities, and it's very social. The amenities are better here than anywhere else I have lived. I love the brand new fitness center and year round pool

The staff changes very often and don't do well passing over information. They have roaches and bed bug problems. They don't take care of maintaince issues well. Numerous complaints have been put in about the central air in the gym and nothing ever gets done about it. The river floods over into the parking lot damaging cars. You hear everything that the neighbors are doing

I enjoy living here. I've lived here for 2 years now and I enjoy it. WiFi is u stable but overall I have no complaints. If you have a problem the staff is easy to talk to and they work hard to solve it quickly and reasonably.

Very old building with constant maintenance issues, it took months to replace my AC, still have the broken tiles in the kitchen they never replaced from 2014, parking is horrible if you have guests. Fitness center is a joke, I had more equipment in my garage as a child. Bathrooms have zero ventilation so after taking a shower the walls stay wet, but there is a heat lamp from the 60's or 70's you can use to dry it out I suppose. One of the two driers on my floor remained broken for many months and it was an independent company they simply had to call to fix it.
Building manager Samantha Shaw is a complete bit*h, I happened to see that mentioned in a review elsewhere before I moved in and after 1.5yrs finally got to experience it firsthand. You have to hassle her to get things done, many of the tenants and staff hate her. Not sure why JMG realty keeps her on, perhaps cheap labor. She certainly doesn't manage the building well at all, very unprofessional. The other staff is excellent, very nice, clearly to offset the manager foul disposition.
They will show you a demo unit that has been furnished nicely and the age of the apartment hidden well and will promise the apartment you are getting is the same, but it certainly is not. The views are great and just across the street from the beach, but there is a reason you get this view for 1/2 of the rent of adjacent buildings.

TL;DR is their leasing rep scammed and lied to us about a $100 "deposit" and let us live with a noise that sounded like a tantrum-throwing two year old kicking the wall for 10 months. It's a mistake to live here.
