Reviews for Hopkins Plaza

Posted On: 2/2/2015

It s awesome truly. finally out of a 20 yr mistake....

It s like a little private universe all its own. Everybody on staff is super well versed on all aspects of the mini community here on these 2 Hopkins blocks. We are treated with warmth and respect.so many families all well behaving together.!!! LOL!!! TRACE MAKE my day and after my sons super creative introduction of Apollo 13 our service dog residents all call him by name and have discontinued to instantly jump back 15 feet when crossing paths. He s getting used to it here with not too much yard or being able to put his head on couch and stare out living room window for each family member coming home...we re working on barking..As best we can .I ll bear with us...everything is so clean and it has a almost hotel housekeeping staff ambience. Around here. I m really pinching myself each day to see if it s really true I m living so nicely. Thanks so much Tyler for fast perfection of maintenance for us.

Great location, great staff.

It's quiet and management is responsive. The neighborhood is great and it is so close to so many things. Plus it's just a hop to the freeway system.

The townhome is very nice.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The townhome is very nice and quiet. Parking leaves something to be desired and the grounds look tacky but the neighborhood seems nice enough. Connecting to the freeways is very easy and close from here.

Good place to live; good people -residents & staff.

Local Management are professional and considerate. The current maintenance man is knowledgeable and experienced. There is an enjoyable cultural mix of residents. People are friendly. The grounds are well-maintained. Management arranges some enjoyable social events for the residents. Hopkins is a pleasant city in which to reside; there are some very enjoyable local activities and events, such as the arts center, the movie theater, various retail shops, the library, the grocery store, restaurants, the city park with band shell, the summer farmers market, which are all within walking distance of Hopkins plaza.

Great management and maintenance crew; good neighbors;...

Great location! Hopkins is a fun city and small so its easy to get around. There are community activities, a variety of restaurants, a good movie theater with low cost tickets, the arts center is awesome -great entertainment and community classes. Hopkins is the home of a top quality public performing arts high school, Main Street School of Performing Arts. There are quality car repair shops, storage facilities, banks, grocery store (Driskills), exercise places, hair salons, small fun shops, a variety of businesses such as acupuncture, massage, accountants, dentists, Hopkins Vision Clinic, ACE Hardware, and more. Its close to HI 7 & Knollwood Mall; its off Excelsior Blvd., giving access to many St. Louis Park businesses including Methodist Hospital & Park Nicollet Clinic; & its very close to HI 169. In the complex, they take very good care of the outdoor swimming pool. Snow-removal efforts are excellent - they keep the walk ways cleared and salted. I've lived here for 5 years now & I've met some wonderful neighbors. Throughout the year there are several fun activities for the residents to get to know each other and local city service personnel often attend. Stuart Co Mgmt and our local mgmt work hard to provide a quality place for residents to call home.

Such a professionally run place. Great management and...

I love the responsive management. My neighbors are respectful and diverse. Issues are taken care of very quickly and I'm amazed at the professionalism that is provided at a very reasonable cost of rent. From fixing problems that arise in my apartment to getting packages in the office; it's clear that management cares and takes pride in the product they deliver. Maintenance is particularly excellent. It really makes a difference.

Great Place to live

PROS: Location, Location, Location, you can't get a better spot in Hopkins to live! I think Hopkins Plaza is a great place to live. The community is friendly, I have never had a bad experience with anyone who has lived near me or around me. The staff at Hopkins Plaza is super kind and efficient. Anytime I have had to call they fix the problems within 24 hours usually. Cons: There's really nothing wrong with the property. I guess in my own personal opinion I would recommend putting either addition windows in the 2 bedrooms or an additional air conditioning unit in the two bedrooms. This last summer was rough! The summer before wasn't too bad though.

Friendly and helpful staff, large 1-bedroom apts, great...

I have lived here one year. I am really happy we chose this apartment building as opposed to something closer to Minneapolis. There are a few express buses on 7th/Excelsior and 7th/Main that run during rush hour, which is a huge plus for commuters. Living within walking distance to the budget theater, the library, grocery, and restaurants is great. There are a lot of children living in the complex, but it is typically a quiet apartment and I rarely hear our neighbors (unless they are in the hallway or outside with the windows open). It's true that the apartments do have some dated features (our carpeting and plumbing fixtures could use some updating), but it makes up for it with large closets and rooms. The biggest drawback was when we moved in, that our apartment smelled like smoke from the previous tenants. Hopkins Plaza offered to shampoo our carpets again, which is a nice gesture but not particularly helpful (shampooing doesn't get out smoke smell out of carpeting-- baking soda, vacuuming, airing out, washing walls, and time is what worked for us). That is the only major annoyance I can think of. Overall, I would recommend this apartment.

Excellent maintenance, clean common area, great management..

It is a great value for the money. Other complexes in the area are considerably more expensive for what I'm getting. The units are perhaps a bit dated, but if that isn't high on your priority list, then it's definitely worth consideration. The closet space, layout and features are great and the maintenance and upkeep is fantastic.
