As is the case in any major American city, always take PadMapper, rent.com, apartments.com, etc...with a grain of salt. Remember, they want to show the prices that will get you in the door. I don't think I've ever rented a place from a major management company where they didn't bait and switch. I walked from many of them until I realized the only solution was to avoid larger management companies and hit up craigslist or other independent landlords.

Of course, it's harder to know what you're going to get with independent landlords...

Like it was mentioned before, 80202 is literally the middle of downtown. Cherry Creek is less than 5 miles southeast of downtown. Even a small studio apartment is out of the question at $1000/month there.

You'll have to be relatively far out from 80202 to achieve a rent of around $1000 for a modern 1 bedroom apartment in Denver and you'd probably still have to up your budget by a couple of hundred dollars.

Old studios can be had in nearby neighborhoods such as Capital Hill, Cheesman Park or City Park for around $1000 but they will not be modern and they will be small. Up your budget by a couple of hundred dollars in these neighborhoods and you could find an old, outdated 1 bedroom apartment but you'd certainly run into competition for them.

I'd suggest staying in AZ if affordability is a concern.

Holy smoke. Cherry Creek is really not much more affordable than anything in 80202. A small modern studio there costs at least 1.1k.

There appear to be lots of alternatives in the surrounding areas on PadMapper Apartment Search

If you don't mind living a bit farther away, check this out:

Current availability and pricing at Cherry Creek Club Apartments in Glendale CO

Still within a 20 minute commute to downtown.

When you place the rent range between $0-$1000, almost every listing is in either a relatively undesirable area (depending on what you're use to/where you come from), a studio apartment or just a blatant scam.

The rule of thumb in Denver is if you want to pay less in rent, the more young or seedy your neighbors will be. Although that may not be true 100% of the time, it's highly likely this will be the case wherever you end up this close to downtown in that price range.

Skiing, snowboarding and especially marijuana has brought thousands of underemployed young adults to the Denver metro area. Just be prepared to live with all that entails.
