Woodbridge seemed wonderful at first, especially after we had been looking for a larger size apt. w/ no luck! (Unless you are rich.) We have a 2 bdr. 2 bath, about 1010 sq. feet and pay 1200 (usually 1300, we got a move in rate) + 15 for water. Its a bit spendy but we get by. We have heard that they are constantly raising the rent... and they only do 6 month leases! We no longer will be able to afford the place, and they have a hard time actually keeping the place occupied. We have had a couple of maintenance problems, and they EVENTUALLY get to you...if you keep reminding them. They are really stingy with workers so they have been with 1 maint. man for about 5 months now and he's about to go postal. If you need the room, its pretty spacious, but the stackable washer/dryer in the units are a joke and you are constantly doing laundry no matter what. If they break you pay the repair bills (its in the lease!) We are a military family with a baby, so we were concerened about the crime rate. The area is nice, and usually pretty quiet w/ a park nearby, schools, and shopping. You pay pet rent if you have a cat/dog plus a dep. for each! You only get 1 parking space/ apt. and finding guest parking usually a challenge...especially on the weekends. All in all, Woodbridge is average, but latley it seems like we are paying too much for what we are getting. The La Mesa area and Mt. Helix is a nice location, but you are definatley paying for that as well!
