My dad has had an apartment here for fifteen years. It may not have a beach front view but it has been home to us, and it has brought a lot of good times our way. The only area that really needs improvement is the parking situation. Life in Huntington Beach is not exactly ""cheap"". The Solteros Apts. shaves a little off the cost of living, and at least they have a pool.
Pros: Affordable, decent sized, and at least you get a garage.
Cons: parking is difficult, people who do not live there will take up all the parking
