"Wow, this place is really great because its managed by really great people! Samantha was an awesome person to deal with and made the process of both securing a unit and eventually parting ways when I no longer needed it a cinch! Would highly recommend this to anyone. Lot is also monitored 24/7 which is great piece of mind."

"It is clear since we started renting our space that new management is in place and I got to see that first hand when I met the new manager, Samantha! I almost did not rent my space in July 2020 because there was human feces in the stairwell as the then manager showed me the unit. It was too late to change our minds as our movers were on their way.  Now, it is the place it should have been. I am disappointed to read such a review on Samantha as I had the exact opposite experience."

"This place is filthy. Example: a water bottle filled with a yellow liquid and left in the elevator for several days. You can guess what the liquid was. Along with assorted other trash such as fast food bags, soda cups, etc. Trash around the entry area, in elevator, and hallways. I am leaving as soon as possible. No wonder they have roach and rat traps everywhere."

"Samantha Bixby was incredibly helpful during my experience checking in at the Costa Mesa location. I was given incorrect information prior to my arrival to the facility from the central reservations team and Samantha went above and beyond to correct those errors and provide a solution which ended up being better than my original option. She did so with a great attitude and helpfulness that was extremely appreciated. Thank you, Samantha!"

"This place has really gone downhill since it changed hands from Magellan Storage to Life Storage. All of a sudden there's price increases every year, and not just little price increases. You might think that with price increases you'd be getting a better facility but that's not the case. There's always trash scattered throughout the facility now (inside and outside) because all the trash cans/dumpsters have been removed The push carts that used to be provided as a convenience have been taken away. Storage units are getting broke into often, might have something to do with the fact that the gate doesn't always work. Luckily my unit has only gotten broken into once in which apparently bandits broke into a whole bunch of storage units, unfortunately many things were stolen, things exceeding several thousand dollars. At least they have cameras there right? Well, yes they have some but good luck trying to get them to actually go through the footage or getting them to try to prosecute the criminals, not gonna happen. The door on my unit remains damaged and difficult to use after about a year and there's no interest in them fixing it nor all the other units that remain damaged. And if you need customer service, good luck trying to get a hold of anyone as they really cut down their staff so there is only 1 person working there at a time (even pre-Covid), that person can't be in the office often because they have other things to do around the facility. Couple other things that don't happen anymore that used to happen during Magellan Storage, complimentary food trucks for tenants once in a while, garage sales. Should I talk about all the rat poop that covers everything now? They do have a great location though? So 2 stars"

"I would give this place zero stars if possible even go negative since they hired a new manager and got rid of the guy who actually took pride in what he did. I was informed by Nicolas that they accidentally sold my unit. When I confronted Samantha about this her attitude was so cavalier and blasé you would think she was deciding what she was going to order at Starbucks or contemplating the time it takes for paint to dry. You accidentally sell my things without any notice, you refused to help me get my stuff back,  you make empty promise after empty promise and yet I should be grateful?  It's practically impossible to even get a return phone call from anyone at this location or even the area manager whom calls from a blocked number doesn't fulfill her promises real professional right? You do not care that my identity was stolen because of your inept manger and total negligence. You've made no effort to get my birth certificate Social Security card credit card debit cards and mail back inside the unit contains all of my clothing other than the clothes on my back? Is it normal that you have not extended any sort of courtesy for your total ineptitude and negligence. I highly advise to stay away from this place. Samantha is as useless as the pimple on my ass, particularly as she told me "that's just life storage" As an explanation for why she didn't call me back. Samantha makes empty  promises in order to use theft by deception in order to defraud you and steal possessions. I'm certain once she realized what was in there after entering and cutting  off my lock without any notice or even a phone call. Can you imagine having your entire wardrobe except for what you're wearing gone? All of your legal documents gone, personal and private information in the hands of other people, your medical records family photos etc.? Replacement value of my wardrobe alone is close to $100,000 I'm sure Samantha's partner is enjoying the custom-made Brioni suits? The 14 pairs of Ferragamo shoes? Yes I know size 13 doesn't make them easy to sale or wear however they were mine not yours to begin with! Then how about the two dozen custom-made shirts from Saks fifth Avenue? Personally, I like the French cuffs with my silver cuff links and the Pannerai watch... The  countless luxury and designer items  from Zegna, Brioni, Pucci, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermès etc... You realize I needed theses things to go to work? Valentino slacks that I just bought, or the D squared and Moschimo items with the tags still on them? How about those Brunello Cucinelli sweaters?  And all my dirty underwear despite being from 2 Exist they were mostly dirty as I hadn't done laundry in weeks that's why there was a new box of laundry detergent next to them. Did you like the Giuseppe Zanotti shoes? You realize that those were almost $2k? Thanks Samantha for all of the problems you've caused me. It's not like I didn't have enough on my plate already. And to whomever has my things you should also think Samantha, because many of those new items would not be there if it hadn't been for her suggesting I put more items inside right before she "accidentally" sold I mean stole I mean sold everything. Whoever has my things are you enjoying coffee from the new never used or opened Technivorm coffee maker, i'm sure you already discovered the Kona coffee that was $100 a pound and the coffee grinder....   There also was the Tumi luggage, the Louis Vuitton luggage, bedding and linens, two bikes of which one was a carbon fiber Specialized valued at $6k less than a year old, all different Apple products, i'm glad you're enjoying the latest technology they offer and some very expensive odds and ends I've kept to remind myself of certain places and people. So you lie, you screw up, and you want me to take the loss? What a great position to take when you destroy someone's life in a fairly epic manner like this. I guess the law doesn't matter to you and given what you've done and shown me by threatening to have me arrested for trespassing when I attempted to make a police report shows you have no work ethic which everyone already knows but you are also potentially a sociopath and I know according to you it's not your problem... Make sure you do as much cover-up as you can in order to justify these egregious "accidents" Samantha Ironically the area manager informed me There was no late charges or any extra types of fees due to Covid and you knew this all along, yet you lied as I waited for a call for 2 months as I checked in at least every other week sometimes daily... yet why when I was there two weeks prior and I saw my lock missing you told me that nobody had broken in that you had cut the lock off and insisted that I put more items in the unit. Theft is wrong no matter how you justify it and Samantha Bixby Life Storage as well as the auction company that didn't do their due diligence are all guilty of theft by conversion"

"Prices go up a lot. Moved to a new place closer to home. Noticed the front office a month in advance that we would be moving out and were told that we did it perfectly and would have no problem with no more payments coming out and just notify them again when we are out. End of January we let them know we are all out and cleaned. A week later.....they took money out. Called left a message NOTHING, sent an email from their site.....NOTHING!!! Do not rent here, they steal your money!!!"

"Returned to our storage units after about a year to find all aspects of the site as run down and dirty as I have seen it in the eight years we have had the units. The elevator's sluggish operation was concerning as well. What I had previously considered a well maintained site has now become a run of the mill sketchy storage operation."

"I accidentally maid a payment on the wrong unit and tried to resolve this issue. I spoke to Marco the property manager and he said he would handle it. A week and a half later still nothing done. I was frustrated because obviously he didn't do his job. When I said that he became hotty and said that I created extra work for him. Excuse me! Things happen on accident and you promised me that you would handle it. He hangs up on me and says if I go there to resolve it that he would contact the police. What!? My business stuff is in there. I'm not late. I am going to file a police report on the property!!! This is crazy! He lied saying they don't have a regional manager and found out they do. Big mess! I would never in my life talk to my customers the way he did. He needs to get fired! Hotty man with a major attitude problem. The previous property manager was more professional. Heaven forbid you make one mistake online for your unit. BBB should be contacted in this case since they list it on their site. I cannot store my business stuff in there with the way they handle their ghetto customer service attitude. Stay away from this place! Customer service is impossible to deal with. Just a big warning from a business owner."

"This entire facility is infested with mice,rats and possibly bed bugs. I've been a customer for 10 years, when it was originally Magellan Storage the place was immaculate . Then it became "Uncle Bobs"storage and got more expensive. Now it's "Life Storage"but  it should really be called "Life Sucks Storage". All my stuff is covered in mouse droppings and rodent urine. I"ll have to throw out most of it and find another place. They don't have garbage pails or a dumpster on the property. So now I have to put all that nasty stuff in my car. It's also super expensive. I saw mice scampering out of a lockea few doors away . Even though there's mouse traps all over the place it's still infested. Remember that old movie called "Willard" about a guy who was into hoarding pet rats? He would be in heaven if he had a unit at Life Sucks Storage. Can't wait to get out of there !"

"WELL I must say there must have been some BIG personnel changes here since all the 1 star reviews were posted back in the day! I recently moved in and THEN read the reviews. I know, I know .... not the smartest way to use YELP but in this case it worked out well for me! If I read those old 1 star reviews first I probably would not have come here! So I guess I got lucky doing it my way because my move in experience was amazingly easy and I don't think you can find a nicer, more accommodating office staff team then Barbara and Reigh!(probably spelled her name wrong lol sorry Reigh). Seriously, they were friendly, professional and a pleasure to deal with... And just so you know, I have had my share of grumpy, unaccommodating storage unit managers so I was more then glad to run into these two : ) Bottom Line! I am pretty happy here... you might be too!

"Three months ago I went to my storage and noticed the lights in hall directly across from my unit were out.  I went to the office and reported it.  I returned again about a month and a half later (on 12-14-2019) to find that the same lights still had not been fixed.  I again went to the office and spoke to Barbara (the "Store Manager"), and she told me that the company they hired to replace them hadn't gotten to my row yet.  Three weeks later (on 01-05-2020) I went back to my unit and they still have not been replaced.  Again I spoke to Barbara, and she said they had the lights in a storage unit.   These lights are the only means of getting any light in my unit.  Without them it is very difficult to see my things.  I can't believe it takes more than three months to fix these lights.  I think this management is doing a horrible job at keeping the facilities working properly.  On top of that, from the few times I have dealt with the manager, she always seems to have a bad attitude and poor customer service (unless you are a potentially new customer). This place has gotten so much worse since I first moved in.  I now regret my decision."
