      This apartment really cares for its residents. I have to move out because it is little bit on the pricier side, but the maintenance comes super fast. They not only replaced my whole faucet for free, they also fixed a crack on the dryer by replacing a whole piece. I highly recommend this place to anyone who have little extra for their rents!

      The poorly maintained trash chute/refuse room has led to a severe fruit fly infestation. The community room, halls, mail area, gym, and many apartments are full of them. I have a very clean apartment, with no dishes in the sink and no garbage in the trash can. I also put bleach down my drains daily as instructed, but I am still unable to cook or eat in my apartment, and cant even keep food in my refrigerator. Every food item ends up covered in fruit flies nearly immediately. They are landing all over me as I type this. Per management, it will be taken care of by a professional exterminator next week, but this has already been going on for almost 2 weeks. It is truly disgusting. I do not recommend First National Apartments, unless you love fruit flies.

      Beautiful building in a great location. Common areas, for the most part, maintained meticulously. Had some local management issues but the Executive team jumped right in and resolved any issues.

      The building is beautiful and well-maintained. The staff is caring, courteous, and very responsive. Mail and packages are handled promptly and with care. I'm centrally located to work. All in all, I'm very happy to live in the First National Apartments!

      Government employees be ware! The building is pretty nice. It is old and lacks a lot of the amenities of new apartments. I have had a leak in the ceiling of my bathroom that hasn't been fixed in 4 months, and it is a little over priced but not a bad location. The warning and poor review really center on the fact that if you are a government employee and subject to last minute moves, First National will not work with you in anyway. I would suggest government and military members look for more reasonable accommodations unless you want to be left with a large bill on PCS.

      Over the past few years I've seen the management of this property quickly decline. The new manager, while always nice, lacks the ability to manage the building. Cleaning supplies in the workout room are always out and more recently the garbage has been backed up in the trash chutes and now overflowing in each chute room for over two weeks. The smell and flying insects are disgusting. Management continues to indicate it's being taken care of, but it's now been two weeks, and a week prior to that there was a back up too, and we continue living in a trash dump, not the "luxury apartment living" it once was, and continues to be promoted as. The prior manager, you'd always find roaming the building and was very responsive to issues on the property. I can count on one finger the number of times I've seen the current manager around the building, and with that one can anticipate a decline in the property. For the amount of money we pay in rent, the stature of the property itself, one expects a certain level of service.
