I can tell you Fox Run is Plainsboro is fairly crappy. Stayed there for about 6 months. Police were there on a regular basis.

Look into Ravens Crest or Aspen Dr. in Princeton Meadows in Plainsboro. There are a few under 1300.

they are all scam places. They add mandatory "fees" for using the pool (and the fees are high) and they will bump your rent a lot if you want to renew. When I lived there and was moving out, I told them that the reason was that it was too expensive (they bumped my rent >20%, but I really just wanted to live with my friend). They instantly cut the increase to 10%, and then I said no, they cut it to 5% without me even trying. When I still declined the woman told me that I could call the manager and he could lower it more if I wanted. What a scam place. Instead of trying to keep a good tenent that paid on time and was no trouble, they wanted to make more money.

They probably have move in and move out fees now too. Just find a house to rent in Princeton area

Look into realtor.com and craigslist. There are some individual listings for 2 bedrooms in your price range. The asking price is sometimes negotiable - you may be able to knock $100 or $50 down the rent. Also suggest South Brunswick development like Whispering Woods (not apartment complexes) - more spacious than condos in Plainsboro. If you still haven't seen anything you like, extends your search to North Brunswick. Good luck!
