We really enjoyed the upper apartment that Debra provided. The apartment was spotless and large, bathroom had lovely plush towels and comfy furniture. There were 2 decent sized bedrooms both with very comfy beds, quiet at night and an easy parking situation. This place is right near the library and walking distance to most things in Olympia. I think my... More

For the last couple years, we were thrilled to have such a charming and comfortable home away from home here on Franklin. Everything we needed was available and we were within walking distance of great food and the lake. For short or long stays in the future, I'll check here first.

We often host staff trainings in Olympia office. As a non-profit it can be really pricey to put staff up in a hotel and after finding short stay lodgings, we no longer have to! The Franklin Street apartments are perfect because they are in walking distance to everything - restaurants, the lake, grocery store, coffee shops. Plus it ended up... More

I appreciate this place so much, they helped me establish a life here by providing a longer stay until I could find something permanent. I recommend this establishment to anyone staying in the olympia area.

We had a great 10 days in Olympia, and staying at the apartment also meant we could entertain and cook the excellent local produce. Debra is a great host and we loved having the garden to wander through each day.

We stayed here for two nights. We had three bedrooms, a living room and a bathroom. The kitchen had all the things necessary for food preparations and nice living. The place was open and comfortable. There was a little picnic table in the backyard, but we didn't use it. The parking was a little tight in the backyard, but after... More

The rooms were clean and cozy and comfortable. The apartment had everything you would need to take care of a family while on vacation. The owner was quite accommodating and friendly. We were even able to have guests. It was perfect for our small family outing.

We stayed for 10 days for our son's graduation and in preparation for his wedding. I have stayed at many vacation rentals, and this one is average at best. The best part of this apartment was the location- easy access to anything we needed, and management was responsive to issues that came up. Lots of towels and linens. They provided... More

Debra S, Manager at Short Stay Lodgings - Franklin Street Inn, responded to this review

I really tried my best with this guest. Upon arrival, she claimed the lockbox was broken but then we talked and it worked. She claimed my dishwasher was broken so I replaced it the same day without testing or questioning her integrity. The repairman who worked on the original dishwasher after replacing it didn't even charge me as the original... More

I stayed with my 3 young kids & my au pair in the 2-bedroom downstairs apartment while on a cross-country trip. My kids and au pair had the bedrooms, and I slept on a pull-out single bed - which was more comfortable than I expected. We made great use of the full kitchen and prepared most of our meals in....
