    I am currently living in Isola Bella right now. Below I have copied and pasted my review for Isola Bella on Apartmentratings.com. I have also decided to start a blog where I can update my reasons why I wish I didn't live here on a daily basis, because it seems I find a new reasons almost every day. Here is the link to the blog: Isola Bellughhhhhh!

    Here is my review on ApartmentRatings.com

    I stayed at Isola Bella from March to May 2012 for FAA training. While there, I stayed in building 6345 / apartment 175. There are quite a few things to like about this place, but also a few things that brought me to the conclusion that I will never stay here again. First of all when my wife and I checked in, we immediately noticed several bugs and spiders in the bathroom, living room, kitchen, and hallway of the apartment and although the rooms were exterminated a few times while we were there,...

    IB is good, but not great. I booked at IB because I didn't want a roommate. The property is hit and miss. I lucked out and got a decent apartment, but I have seen other apartments here that are more rundown and seemed more of a collection of what didn't fit elsewhere. The quality is lacking. The pots and pans are of such poor quality that they were peeling as I cooked. The grounds are nice. The gym is nice, but at times a little untidy. People just need to put things away after they use them. Th... [Read More]

    Just got here on 4/27 and I can't see why everyone is not staying here at IB. I've been over to Kim's place and its nice, but you have to stay with roomates in a big house, that means sharing a bathroom, sharing rides to/from wherever, having to cook meals for yourself all the time, having to drive to the gym, etc. I've had roommates and see no reason to live in a shared house when I can have my own apartment and free meals prepared for me at the same price at IB. There are tons of FAA people he... [Read More]

    Stay: 07/2011-10/2011

    Coming from someone from the city, Isola Bella was "OK." The Staff is wonderful, I can not complain about that. They will definitely go out of their way to meet your needs and requests. However, it seemed like every other week something new was wrong within my apartment.

    Mold: An older apartment development. The first day I moved into my apartment I realized, that it had a strong, terrible odor. As the days went on, I did not eve... [Read More]

    I have one word for isola bella....AWESOME!! The staff is great... Brandy and Jessica are wonderful. Any problem I've ever had was quickly taken care of and the food is great. Happy hour is just the icing on the cake.

    I've enjoyed my stay at Isola Bella. Dont see any reason to stay anywhere else, they provide everything you need. I opted for the one bedroom, so I got an apt by myself, meals twice a day and room service once a week. Hydi and the rest of the staff at the pavillon are top notch.

    I love it here! Great food! Service & they got out their way to meet my request. I love the girls at the front desk, especially Erica. From day 1 she was very polite, open and extremely helpful and friendly. She always has a smile! Great place. I will probably stay here every time I come back to OKC

    I'll admit, I'm not very impressed so far. The bed that I have is terribly hard, so I haven't slept in a while. The washer/dryer doesnt work, and my particular room is filthy. There are spots all ovre hte bathroom that are unidentifiable, and there is a ton of dirt/grim all around the door frame, like a kid with sticky filthy hands lived there before me. I am so far away from the Pavillion that I don't use the "amenities" that I'm paying extra for. I am just not happy there at all. I'm... [Read More]

    I just finished my time at the academy (10/2010-2/2011), and stayed at Isola Bella, and wanted to let everyone know about this place.

    Overall, the stay was enjoyable. I was really worried, giving the location and what I've read here before, but in all honesty, it wasn't that bad. When I was first called by the FAA, I actually set up reservations at Kims place and Isola Bella. I chose Isola Bella on one condition. I had my own apartment. Privacy is a big thing to me, and I didn't... [Read More]

    OK, I stayed at Isola Bella apartments for two months and I'm writing this review to hopefully settle some of the misrepresentation of the good, and the bad this place has to offer. I am writing this with the consensus of most of my fellow classmates that are staying in this location also.

    Customer Service (5) = I gave this one a five because the ladies at the front desk do a great job at making your stay the best it can be. They were always extremely friendly and if anythi

    my husband and i came to stay at Isola Bella in July of 2010 while he trained at the FAA academy. we were due to stay the three months but we moved out after one. it was defiantly not what we were expecting when we arrived. the check in was great and the staff was very nice, they checked before we were given keys that our apartment was clean which was nice. the outside is not much to look at but it did the job. the inside was what really upset me. i was not expecting the luxury of our house but ...

    Where to start? First, If you read any of the older reviews or stayed at IB before the renovation you need to know things have changed. For example, I have seen no mold, minimal goose poop on the sidewalks, and only had trouble with my wireless internet once. (And that one time they worked until 10:45 pm to get it restored)

    I'll give my thoughts based on the ratings system here on SM. First, customer service here at Bella is superb. I would like to call out several employees by ... [Read More]

    Well I stayed at I.B. during the spring of 2009. When I was still there they were still doing the construction, but I am pretty sure they are done by now. I did really enjoy Isola Bella while I was there. From what I hear now, it looks like it is cheaper than when I stayed and you get even more for your money. I didn't get the free food, courtesy cars, or able to use laptops when I was there. I did have a good time. It is located in a good area and there are always other academy students wanting...

    Isola Bella is the best place to stay. I loved it, I am here now and the pool is great, food is great, tons of FAA students. There is no better place to stay IMHO. Treat yourself to luxury while you are at the academy. Hope to see you here.

    Isola Bella is the BEST play to stay in OKC. I finished up basics and tower class about a week ago and could not have enjoyed it more. They have everything you could possibly want while you are in OKC. They have an awesome breakfast and awesome dinner as well. I really enjoyed their salad bar. The pavilion is pretty much open all the time and you can always go in there and have a soda for free from the fountain or play pool, watch TV and what not. Isola Bella is about 15-20 minutes from the Acad... [Read More]

    This place is not what it likes to think it is. This so called renovation is not visible from the inside of the units. When I visited 4 months before we moved here they picked the BEST room to show me which is a misrepresentation of what the rest of the units look like. The internet never worked, the units smelled, it was loud, the floor was so dirty even after I mopped it 4 times in one week, the food was good at best. There was a standing joke that a "pasta surprise" would show up wi... [Read More]

    I am extremely happy I chose Isola Bella for my stay while in OKC. The rooms are nice and look recently renovated. The gym is awesome and there are pools everywhere. The Pavillion provides a nice setting for eating and having drinks with friends. The staff even went out of their way to provide residents with a place to watch UFC this weekend, very cool of them to do that for us. The lake in the complex is beautiful and nice to grill out next to. I highly recomend this establishment for single st... [Read More]

    This is not meant to bash Isola Bella. I just don't think it is a place for everyone, so I just want to tell you why it wasn't for us (I am the wife of a controller trainee). We chose Isola Bella because we thought it was going to be like being on vacation: not having to cook, huge gym, luxurious accommodations.

    Food- Free. I think it is good for single people who don't cook. I like to cook, but felt like I needed to eat at the pavilion because it was free. Unfortunately, I gain... [Read More]

    I have stayed at Isola Bella since Dec 2009. I would recommend staying here to everyone. They serve free breakfast and dinner Mon-Fri. (the food isnt bad and its free) They also offer a free happy hour every saturday! Most people in the academy will stay here making it easy to organize for study group. The apartments are a decent size with a walk in closet and are cleaned every week including dishes! The staff is really nice and willing to accomodate you in any situation. There a... [Read More]

    This letter is in regards to my first stay at Isola Bella Apartments.

    I have been attending the F.A.A. academy for over 13 years. I have stayed at just about every large property in town and Isola Bella is by far the best yet. I stayed here about 8 years ago when it was Woodlake and it was fair but the gunshots kept me up at night. When Michele told me about it I was very interested. I have been dealing with Michele for years and would stay in a cardboard box if she was managin... [Read More]

    I wanted to like this place, I really did. I gave it all I could but unfortunately it was a waste of my time.

    Things I liked: the gym, the free dinner on some weeknights (not the hot dinner, that wasn't all that good, but the salad bar was pretty good), the GM.

    Now, the story:

    I did all of my research online, and they have done a great job of setting up a very misleading website. It looks like you are staying in a 10/10 place, whereas it's more ... [Read More]

    Isola has its good and bad. Most of the staff is great but there are just a couple that don't seem to understand what customer service is, so I mainly deal with management or specific staff members. I had issues with my room rate, cause they tried changing it once I arrived so every time I go pay I have to remind them of the change so they can update it (again).

    The rooms are decent, it has all the amenities you would need to get by for a couple of months. They have a roommate p... [Read More]

    I am only writing this to help the people that will be going to the academy, you will have allot to do and will need all the time you can to devote to studying. Staff get a 5 because they tried aside from the manager.

    To kick things off, my family and I arrived on the day of check in only to find out that our apartment was not ready and needed to be "cleaned". Three hours later it was ready, but come to find out it was not the apartment by the lake that I secured month... [Read More]

Understanding The Archives

StuckMic previously had a method of rating the providers on 6 pieces of criteria which included:
  • · Customer Service
  • · Price
  • · Location
  • · Noise
  • · Cleanliness
  • · Amenities
To transfer over the previous ratings to the new system, which allows the user to rate the facility based on a 5 star rating system used by hotels, restaurants and other large establishments, we first added up the ratings for each provider under the old system and then divided that by 6. (This is basic math averaging.) We then took that number and rounded it to the nearest .5 and that became the single digit number we used to start the new rating system.

The archived reviews display the previous ratings as well as the average rating based on the previous entries. The archived reviews are very relevant to the providers listed and were the primary source of rating for almost 5 years.
