I've lived here for 7 years now and the complex has drastically gone down in quality and appeal every year since. Guest parking is a complete nightmare, especially if your guests (or spouse/partner) want to park closer to your unit in… Full Review ▶

I was recently informed in writing by the management that the build contains asbestos. There is also a sign at the main entrance about it. As the other reviewer said the water is brown. Washers/Dryers are small. Full Review ▶

There is nothing nice about living here. My company set me up in a furnished apartment for my 13-week contract. I couldn't wait to move out! The water is so brown I wouldn't give it to my dogs. My neighbor upstairs… Full Review ▶

Lyon has taken a machete (literally in the case of the landscaping) to life at the Commons. They've brought a serious new combination of uniquely American corporate attitudes which combine ruthless, agressively mean-spirited, cynical, and anti-tennant policies with what may turn… Full Review ▶

BAD management sinced Lyon Management took over. If you have problem, good luck getting help from them. They raised my rent 3 times within a year and a half. You pay for water and garbage, which is another $50-60 per person.… Full Review ▶

Before Lyon Management, this place was a decent deal. Now it sucks. There is constant turnover in the leasing office. They find any way they can to gouge you. You have to give a 60 day notice which makes it impossible… Full Review ▶

I am beyond unsatisfied. This will be long.

We have been here for 4 months and they are already raising our rent by $100/month. My sister has house in Los Gatos for $1800/month. Why would anyone pay $1800/month for a shi**y apartment… Full Review ▶

I have to say this is the worst complex I've ever lived in. Parking sucks, constant construction, paper-thin walls, incompetent (at best) management, and high rents.

Listen to these wonderful amenities! Out of control unregulated NWP billing system for utilities! Why pay $20.00 for water and sewer when you can pay perhaps $50 or $60 monthly for a 430 sq ft studio! Spend your spare cash on… Full Review ▶

Management refuses to take responsibilty for their faded "no parking" zones which visitor's and tenants innocently believe are valid parking spots. Management contracts out to Robello's tow company who randomly drive
