I am overall satisfied. Its a very clean facility, the appliances work very well and I enjoy the quiet and calm atmosphere. The only thing that could be improved is the matte paint used. Very hard to clean and maintain clean.

Quiet and well kept community. The staff is very responsive and willing to make sure that all needs are met. The dryers in the laundry room do not dry the clothes in one cycle which caused me to go to a local laundromat

Hi- Thank you for your interest in Franklin Commons! It's a very nice apartment community in a great location in Franklin. With crime being a concern, the best policy is to contact the local police department in the town no matter where you live. We are professionally managed and the grounds are well maintained. It's a beautiful property! Please feel free to call the office to schedule a tour of the community or if you have any additional questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you! -Bethany Community Director
