    Hands down, the best place to stay in OKC. Kim and John are the best!

    Kim's is hands down the place to stay when you're at the academy. You may think going in you don't want roommates, because they can be bothersome etc but they will be vital to both studying, relaxing from all the stress and for any problems you may have while there. Not only that but you will meet friends that you will have for the rest of you life and some you could very well need to rely on later in your career. Kim herself will help you to no end. While i was there I had car issues and Kim personally came to my house and made sure that everything was taken care of and I didn't need any help with finding a mechanic or tow company. And for the kicker I made it through and headed to my facility (ZOA) I had no where to stay besides spending tons of money on a hotel coming from Pittsburgh I was far from home. I posted on my Facebook to see if anyone knew anyone in the area that would let me crash for a few days while I waited for my apartment to be available. Within minutes Kim posted on my wall and took it upon herself and found me 3 different controllers at ZOA that had spare rooms while I was waiting. TLDR; Kim's place is home away from home and you can't beat the atmosphere, her employees, and the friends you'll make. There's a reason her housing has 200 pus reviews and the rest only have a hand full. Stay here and you've taken the first steps towards a successful career.

    I am an enroute student who graduated from the academy just last week. I stayed at Kim's the entire 3 months of my stay and I am so glad that I did.
    From the moment I sent in my request to live there, Kim was wonderful about communicating with me. I had a good friend from college that was going to be there roughly the same time I was. Even though we were in different classes and she normally doesn't have co-ed houses, she she went above and beyond to accommodate us. Our third roommate was a girl in my class. If you don't request someone specific to live with, she is really great about pairing you with people in your class that are going to the same location as you. This automatically gives you a built in study group.

    The houses are all very nice and well furnished. They provide everything you need right down to laundry soap and toilet paper. There are even a few grills, picnic tables and cornhole sets floating around for your use on the weekend! For enroute students they even provide strip boards so that you can practice non-radar at home, this is a great tool.

    Kim, John and their staff are extremely attentive and timely. If we had a few light bulbs out or something was broken, we would text them and someone would show up within 5 minutes to fix it. When we had an issue with dogs barking in the middle of the night for hours on end so we spoke with Kim about it and she immediately resolved the situation for us. When there was bad weather coming through, they always made sure to warn us and made sure we got home safely.

    Kim is excellent about giving information on the area, she can tell you where to shop, where to get you nails done, where to order pizza from etc. Despite how busy she is, she always gets back to you very quickly if you ask a question.

    There are so many stresses associated with being in OKC for intense training. It was so nice to have the comforts of Kim's place.

    I know housing fills up quickly down there, but if you have the opportunity to stay at Kim's place, I think most people would agree that it is definitely the best option!!!

    Thanks Kim, John, Erin and Daniel for a WONDERFUL experience!!!! You all certainly made my time in OKC more bearable.

    There's no doubt about it in my mind: Kim's Place is the best housing choice for being in OKC, period. Whenever we've been in need of anything, within minutes of sending off a text, our doorbell would ring, and there the necessities would be. Beyond that, more than one of my friends who arrived with no vehicle were not only picked up at the airport, but taken to the grocery store as well to get stocked up as soon as they arrived.

    When the weather turned hot and our AC wasn't kicking on, John was over and had it fixed within minutes.

    Past all of that though, the best thing about Kim's is the fantastic access to study groups. It's definitely made getting through the Academy thus far an amazing and seamless experience.

    Sadly my experience with Kim was not good and I haven't even lived at her place!

    I called her for availability and she was rude, sarcastic, and unfriendly. Her attitude clearly showed that she doesn't care as she had plenty waiting behind me. I started to ask her simple question about the area and stuff that is only related to her location and she doesn't want to answer. Instead she was getting mad and was behaving like I told you that I don't have availability and you are not coming to me so why you are asking and why should I answer all those questions?

    Kim should know that majority of us has never been to OKC so we have no idea what we are getting into and every bits of information can be pretty useful to us specially if it is related to her property. Extremely poor service Kim!

    This rating is carried over from the previous rating system. Our archived reviews can be found here: Kim's Place - Housing Review 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.

    Example: An Average rating of 4.5 would be rounded up to "5". An average rating of 4.4 would be rounded to "4".

    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.
