Great location. Great schools. There are a LOT of children here, which I don't mind, but I can see how it may bother others. The actual physical apartment is very nice. Fairly quiet. Much better than many others I have looked… Full Review ▶

This place is a complete nightmare! Management only cares about themselves. Snow removal sucks, broken glass in the parking lot never gets cleaned up. No insulation so your heat bill will be well over $110 per month. You hear your neighbor… Full Review ▶

Negative reviews describing Chapel Ridge as the "ghetto of Johnston" and the staff as incompetent are unfortunately spot on.

Multiple neighbors have extremely loud stereos in their homes and vehicles and use them on a regular basis.
