Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars K Mills (on Google) at Life Storage, Houston, TX (#478)

"I've had a storage unit in this facility since it was built nearly 20 years ago, when it was a Mom-and-Pop operation. The place has changed hands a few times since then, but it really became a really good storage place when Life Storage took over. The staff -- Sara, Brandon, and Monica, are all very friendly and very helpful. They will help you find the right size storage unit that will fit your needs and stay within your budget. The buildings are clean and well maintained, and the newer building (E) is completely climate controlled. The security is better than most of the other storage facilities I've used over the years, which gives me peace of mind."

"I've only had my storage since the end of January. I lost my job early March and no way to pay my storage. I called and spoke to manager, Monica, about late fee on my account today. Explained that I had lost my job and was just now able to make payment. I asked if she would would PLEASE waive late fee. Her response, NO! Monica told me that the company wasn't waiting late fees. I explained to her, again, the situation of the country and she refused to remove the fees. I paid my storage, but I'll be moving my stuff out ASAP! RUDE! UNHELPFUL! And I genuinely believe that she enjoyed being a total rude bitch towards me!"
