After living and adjusting to the complex and the neighborhood for one year...I would give it only 3 stars. The staff that I have worked with, Verita and Tavia are just awesome and very personable and helpful at anything we ask. But the "classic" model that we reside in definitely is ready for upgrading. Appliances are dated and somewhat always breaking down. Faucets leak etc etc. We really like the location of the complex very neat and tidy on the outside but showing some wear in the halls and stairwells. The smells that get stale and stuck in the halls from the various foods being cooked can be over whelming. It's almost time to renew our lease, we are thinking of the upgrades but the little apartment we exist in is actually a nice spot just needs attention. As for the neighbors, we feel like the minority, no one and I am serious, exchanges hello's or how are you's to us, just lots of stares and no smiles. I would put the residents at 97 percent Indian and 1 percent Asian, 1 percent Latino and 1 percent Anglo-Saxon white. Parking is at a premium on Friday/Sat/Sunday because all the guests from outside of the complex take up every spot that is available to us, we live near the Common Hall where the pool and rec and rental/party room is located. We really should have at least one space reserved for each address that is included in the rental fee. Strange but true, the outside of the complex is very very noisy, kids and adults alike, screaming and just weird loud conversations till well after midnight, we've mentioned this to the office, but it still goes on, oh and we are on the 4th floor so it is weird. If I had a friend ask me if I would recommended Foothill Commons well I would also tell them all the other things that could change their minds.
Lived here for 1 year. It is not bad, neighbors are not noisy so I have no idea if the sound proof is good or not. The hallways do smell bad. I think this place is just $100 too much for rent, but it is safe to live here. I do not think there is anything that would make someone regret living here. You can never find parking in front of your building and sometimes you just have to make your own parking space otherwise where would you put your car? Almost all the spaces are for compact cars and people with big cars or trucks have no choice but to park there so your doors will get dented from jerks that make no attempt to not hit your car. They built a new office with a small gym. The problem is they told us they had an indoor pool, but yet they still have it closed. The tennis courts are closed because they parked contruction equipment on them. They put up a fancy new map by the office and it does not even show the building with the indoor pool, basketball court, or tennis courts on it. It is obvious they are never going to reopen the indoor pool and lied to everyone with a BS story. The map does list the outdoor pool so I hope that does not disappear one day. I would say the price point here should be sub $700 a month for a 1br and it would be a good deal.
