"An extremely clean facility for storage. Private. A variety of storage space sizes. Outside or inside. Availability does vary. The staff is cooperative, willing to demonstrate exactly how to first access your space, use your lock. There is a property map which I found lacking. The only signs refer to the office location. No signs as to storage number locations. You will do a great deal of walking if you have trouble with maps. There is a loading dock. Two carts for loading. Where they are found depends on who used them last. Apparently there were more carts but they were stolen. Sad that happened. Sad it was stated by staff. I chose controlled temp storage. No complaints.They are picky about what you can or cannot store. Insurance is required. Reasonable hours for access. Multiple cameras for security noted in the front office. I found the monthly cost acceptable. Ask about discounts if storing for over 6 months to a year."

"I have rented storage units with Life Storage and elsewhere before, and never have I received such poor service or had issues with my storage unit as I have at this location. I rented an outdoor unit for two months while staging my home to  move, and upon vacating I noticed a large amount of dirt (several inches deep) in my unit. There was dirt all over my belongings. It got in through the bottom of the unit and permeated everything inside. I paid for three total months of storage, and though I understand Life Storage isn't responsible for my belongings (hence why they make you purchase insurance), they took no accountability for the problem at hand. The customer service was poor (with the first person who helped me out not wearing a mask while in the office until I asked them to, by the way) and the follow up even worse. "You need to read the contract," was what the manager said. Someone more invested in customer service would have refunded a month or more of my storage cost. Do not go to this location of Life Storage if you can avoid it. I, for one, will never rent a unit here or at any other Life Storage location again."

"We are in a state of emergency with COVID-19 and this company is offering no relief, just plain greedy!!! No matter how much you pay your bill on time every month they are not willing to help their customers who currently don't have an income due to this city's lock down. Then have the nerve to tell me don't worry they will notify me before they auction off my belongings, wow how insensitive. Furthermore, only 3 months after I got this storage they went up on the price telling me it was a demand for my space. If I had known that I would have never put my things here, big mistake. However, I would not recommend this place to anyone & will be removing my belongings from here as soon as I can. Unbelievable , greedy & selfish business practice. Warning do not support this place by putting your personal belongings here. I'd give them no stars but it is forcing me to give one."

"Absolute worst service ever. Ever since this place changed over from Bob's it has been a nightmare. The criteria for working here must be that you are rude, don't care and can't be bothered with anyone or anything. It is truly just awful how audacious the service is here. Every response is short and condescending and with attitude. Luckily storage business is big business and there are other options. Don't spend your time or money here, it holds no value."
