I just got a job offer in San Antonio and will be moving there in a few months. I'm in my 20's and it's just gonna be me living in the apartment. I've been looking at almost all of the ones in my price range using mostly apartments.com, zillow and apartmentratings to rid of the "bad" ones. However, I am afraid that some of the "good" ones that I picked out might be biased since people can just give positive reviews to receive discounts from their managers. Thus, I am here to seek your inputs and recommendations. Here are some of the ones that I have narrowed down:
1.The Ridge at Bandera
2. Hill At Woodway Apartments
3. The Pointe at Ramsgate
4. The Place at Shadow Valley
5. Bitterwood Ranch
6. Hillcreste @ Thousand Oaks

What am I looking for?
1. <$800. I would like to stay at ~700 but I can go up to 800. Size of the apartment is not a problem. I am down for 1bd or studio
2. Safe areas and quiet apartment complexes

It would be nice to have in-unit washer/dryer but it is not a must.

Comparing all of the above, the Bitterwood Ranch looks to be your best bet, the only thing I cant answer would be concerning a quiet atmosphere !!!

The A2 has 610sf and ranges from $686 to $896.

Then Thousand Oaks is far.

Bandera and Ramsgate will be closer, Bitterwood is central. Not sure about Woodway and Shadow Valley.

I would pick #1.


#3 used to be called La Jolla, which probably some other posters here would recognize. It had a reputation for being kind of ghetto.

#5 would be fine but far.

#6...I looked at those apartments before but it was really difficult to turn out of the complex onto Thousand Oaks.

I lived at Bitterwood Ranch about 10 years ago, and loved it. It was well-maintained, in a safe area, and was nice and quiet - especially when you consider its proximity to the airport. It did have connections for a full size W/D in the unit.


OP, can you be more specific as to where on the NW side your work location will be? If you're going to be in the medical center, then Bitterwood Ranch isn't too far. But if you're going to be in the Westover Hills area, you'll want to find something closer.
