I've got a job offer in San Bernardino... near the intersection of I-10 and 215 freeway. Read lot of bad stuff about the city. Just married... so planning to live somewhere else..may be west of the city(max. 30 mins commute). I can afford $700-900 per month for a single bed or a studio. Any advice regarding this!!? How about living near Cal Pol Pomona!!!

not going to get a good area for that price. rents are on the rise out here because buying a house is out of reach for most people now.

West - Stay away from Colton, Fontana, & Rialto. Rancho Cucamonga and North Fontana are good but expensive. East - Redlands is nice and safer. Could also try Loma Linda next door or farther east - Calimesa is growing right now, Yucaipa, & Cherry Valley. Banning is cheaper but I hear bad things about that town. Mixed reviews on Beaumont(recently improving). Rent average is $1400 to $1800 for a house. Cheaper in the ghettos. Not sure on apartments. If you must live in S.B. go the furthest north, there are still good safe areas. If you are planning on having children, stay away from San Bernardino schools, very bad(know from experience). I have heard Palm/Kendall area & Devore are still okay for schools and there are some good looking apartments on Palm(never lived in one, just looks nice and secure). East Highland Ranch (the "new" part of highland) seems good, have a few friends there.

Check out south Redlands-I rent a 2 BR townhome for 1050-Pine Villas. All the apartments and townhomes are about that. Ridgecrest condos, Barton Vineyards, and Orange Garden Townhomes are very pricey but all newer and nicer communities. It is a safe area, and only 15-20 minutes or so from your job. Check it out if you can-goodluck.

Default rancho

I work exactly where the OP works. I live in Rancho Cucamonga between the 10 and the 215 just west of Victoria Gardens, and it's about 22-25 minutes each way either taking the 15 North to the 215 or the 10. There seem to be more larger homes for rent here, but I have a 3BR for $1900 a month. Try to find a 1BR condo here and you could probably get in for about $1,000. Some of the apartment complexes might be a few dollars cheaper. It may be a bit higher than you want, but I was in the same predicament when I moved here... it seemed like nothing in the area was safe. Rancho is extremely nice and safe. It's too suburban for my tastes, but my employees who talk about hearing gun shots out their front door makes me want to put up with that.

Be careful, though... if you end up renting from a private landlord, many of the homes here are undergoing foreclosure procedings due to years of speculative investing. You might want to do a title search on whatever home you choose to make sure you won't get kicked up in a few months.
