The Americanas are in a great location, but the price, is too high and the quality is low. As for the inside of the apartments that is quite a story.
The tiles in the bathroom are very grimey and old.… Full Review ▶

Damn the management of this frigging management team for having the unmitigated gall to write such a sappy piece of drivel. I laughed so hard at that "review" I nearly crapped my pants. May we all be so bold. Full Review ▶

The place is too expensive. You don´t get much for the money you pay.


There are lots of bugs, ants, etc.


The washers are so old and bad that your laundry either stinks or is covered with detergent, when… Full Review ▶

Exorbitant double-digit rent increases for long-time residents are unjustifiable and unconscionable.

Safety, service and maintenance need to be improved. Kitchen appliances need to be upgraded. Air ducts need to be cleaned at least annually for the health of the occupants.… Full Review ▶

It´s obvious that the last review "Americana Apts has class" was actually written by one of the Americana´s staff.

Appliances are over 30 years old! The range does not work (clock, oven cleaner). Refrigerator often leaves pools of water on the kicthen floor. They will not repair or replace the refrigerator, range and dishwasher. All this and a 12% rent… Full Review ▶

This apartment has very high rent for seniors and people who have are on disability. Single parents or single people. There should be rent control so that people can have a roof over their heads and be able to eat. Everyone… Full Review ▶

I took over a 5 year old lease from my friends. Therefore the price is about $350 less than the same apartment under a new lease. But trying to get the carpet or drapes cleaned/replaced is a nightmare. This hasn´t been… Full Review ▶

I have lived there for 6 months and it has not been a good experience so far. The neighbors are noisy and lake stinks pretty bad. The proximity to the highway is the only good point. Full Review ▶

They are a bunch of greedy, grasping, gouging jerks who will do anything to take advantage of a situation. They have just substantially increased the rates in a down market to place them well beyound the norm for an equivalent apartment… Full Review ▶

I have lived here since 1988. As someone who did a fair amount of travel, having someone to maintain the place and to receive my mail while I was gone was important to me. The buildings were old, but well maintained… Full Review ▶

Over the last decade, Americana appartments have gone from an upper-scale, well maintained, friedly-staffed, safe, quiet, neighborly, comfortable, pleasureable living environment to one that is not only less than desirable, but a down right frustrating place to live. Many of the… Full Review ▶

First inspection would reveal that the Americana has beautiful grounds, reasonable facilities and easy access to the freeway and shopping.

All true, however I warn you to take into consideration the obstinate staff (with the exception of the night watchman), decaying… Full Review ▶

My biggest complaint (and I have many), is the F--kin bad cable service. Basically, Americana has contracted with Optel, a cable provider for apartment complexes. So while the rest of the bay area and SF have AT&T Digital cable with hundreds… Full Review ▶

We have lived in this complex for two years now. They have raised our rents after each lease year ended. I was shocked to see my rent raised in the down market!
