Positives: We wanted cheap (for the area), clean, and safe. We got it. Staff friendly, helpful. Negatives: No TV channel guide, could easily hear neighbors, and the grab-and-go breakfast…we left and ate elsewhere. But for what we wanted, HJ met our needs.

Hello Cathrine Thank you for your review. We have ordered channel guides for the rooms but as like everything else in our world today they are back ordered and have been for at least four months. And as for breakfast we have limits of what’s we can order and that we have space for so those things I do apologize but it’s out of our control. We do hope that you will stay with us again when your in the Portsmouth area

Clean and well-kept property. Limited transportation (taxi, Uber) if you do not have your own vehicle.

The breakfast offering is limited but very good. The walls in the room need to be wype down. Stains are not a good look.

Thank you for taking time to review our property. We are glad to see that you enjoyed your overall stay with us. Unfortunately, due to our building being small, our vending machines are not on every floor. They are located in the guest laundry area. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused. Our free continental breakfast is 6am to 10am. Once it is over, we do lock the refrigerator until breakfast the next morning. During your next stay with us, please let our team know if you need something and they would happy to accommodate your to the best of their abilities.
