Iconic on Alvarado is a great place for me to live.

The convenience of the trolley station being within walking distance has saved me tons of money on gas. The room upon moving in was in great condition, and you get plenty of space for what you pay for. I understand here in San Diego that is a rare commodity. Being from a different state, the leasing process was fast and reliable due to it being done online. They assign roommates to you based on your interests. They provide plenty amenities for residents to use for free. They also hold events to give out prizes and free food! Residents that live here are also friendly and welcoming. Overall a great and cheap place for me to live in San Diego!
