I am moving to Orange county for work and I am in the process in deciding which apt complex to move into. I was there this weekend and saw them both first hand. The Coronado is offering me a 1 bed room for 1151 and Park newport is offering me a studio for 1131. I am looking for honest answers I have heard and read both good and bad things about both places I just want honest feedback so I can make the right decision regarding both places. This is an accelerated move so I don't have time to come back from NJ to look at any more places. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

The area around Coronado is fine, it is just the Coronado that people don't like, but don't worry about it too much. You made your decision, from I remember lease breaking terms are pretty reasonable there.

Going to Irvine from that point, 55 to 405/5 will be slammed so I would avoid that and take some back roads around the back bay.

The great thing about the Coronado is the location, you'll be able to ride a bike to Newport or Huntington Beach. There is a also a decent Greek Food place in the plaza next to you. 17th st has an awesome Surfshop called "Surfside", natural food store called "Mothers Market & Kitchen". I think you will enjoy it for your first move to California.
