Good location

I’ve been enjoying my time at The Flats. The apartments are updated and cute. They are small for the price but the location makes it worth it. There isn’t a washer and dryer in the unit but they have laundry facilities in the building. It can be expensive to use the machines and other residents don’t keep help keep them nice. I love the pool in the summer time!
