My husband are looking at Dominion Park Apartments for a nice 3 bedroom option. Does anyone have or no of anyone with experience there good and/ or bad. Infestation, safety, etc. I have read mixed reviews on the websites but I want to see if posting here will lean one way over the other? Or if you know of any other apartments near there or closer to Lackland AFB 1300 a month is our limit .

$1300 a month should be able to get your a house. Dominion park is on Medical Drive right? Thats not really "near" Lackland

Here are some apartments closer to Lackland:

Costa Valencia Apartment Rentals[id]/30719/
San Antonio Apartments - Stone Ranch at Westover Hills
Townhomes at West Creek Apartments
Westover Hills San Antonio Apartments | Sequoia Cable Ranch in San Antonio, TX 78245

I haven't lived at any of them so I can't recommend them personally, but driving past they look nice.

You can rent a house for $1300 a month for sure. The deposit will probably be more than it would for an apartment but a house is definitely more comfortable when you have kids.

I've lived in the medical center area before and I wouldn't live there again by choice, it's noisy and there are sirens and helicoptors all night most nights, plus the traffic can be bad somtimes.

For some reason I feel like there was some type of shooting or altercation at this apartment complex recently. I searched google and mysa to confirm but couldn't find anything. Not to mmuention it isolated. I don't think it's a complex that has too much going on. t

In regard to the Medical Center, it can be hit or miss in regard to the actual complexes. The area kind of near Callaghan can be a bit sketchy. But, I looked at Dominion Park for a one bedroom when I was looking for an apartment and didn't see anything to make me think there was anything wrong with it. The noise you will get used to and eventually will be a non-issue. I live near train tracks (maybe about half a mile away) and the first two nights they woke me up, but after that I didn't have any problems. And in regard to it being "close" to Lackland that's like a 20 minute drive. The only time it can get hectic is going down to one lane on 410 near Ingram. I would much rather drive on 410 and 10 than 90 and 1604. But, that's just my opinion.
