Rents are based on 2 person occupancy and range in price depending on the property. El Camino Real is $1300/month, Tropicana $1200/month and Sutton Place $850-$1100/month.  At El Camino Real and Tropicana if there are more than 2 people, there is an additional fee of $500 per month added to the rent and $500 additional deposit for the 3rd person. Standard deposit for 1 or 2 people at these properties is $1000.  Brookside Bluffs rent is based on 3 people, a 4th person is $500 additional per month additional added to rent.
