I booked Independence House because of its location to the Mall, and because it looked to be a private and quiet place to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed four nights and had a wonderful time. Mary Jo was not only a very gracious host, but also an interesting person with all kinds of information and stories. The accommodations were excellent,... More

I stayed at this B&B for ten nights and was able to walk almost everywhere. It's an easy walk to the Capitol, buses, subway and Union Station, yet in a well lit residential neighborhood where I never felt nervous though I am a senior traveling alone. Mary Jo is a sweetheart and very helpful with her knowledge of the DC... More

We were very fortunate to have stayed at Mary Jo's Bed ans Breakfast for 3 nights. The place was very nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was just fine, with the morning newspaper. So close to everything, 15 minutes walking distance to all the landmarks. Easy to get on the bus to tour the city. Thanks Mary Jo , highly recommend... More

We arrived from England (UK) late afternoon and were given a very warm welcome by Mary-Jo (owner) into her excellent B & B accommodation. I cannot praise it enough. The two adjoining rooms (bedroom and sitting-room) are clean, comfortable, quiet and well furnished. The private bathroom is well appointed with plenty of hot water. The situation was perfect for us... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is close to the Metro for ease of travel to neighboring cities and local sites. The Internet worked immediately. The private living areas were just right for the 2 of us to work, rest and plan our outings. The furnishings are comfortable and we slept with very well. We look forward to our... More

I hesitate to tell too much about this place because it will always be booked when I need to return! The location is perfect for us because our son and his wife live one block away, but besides, it is perfect location for all that Washington offers. Near Capitol South Metro, all monuments an easy walk, Eastern Market, plenty of... More

A most comfortable and perfectly located B&B, with a friendly and welcoming hostess/proprietor. Spotlessly clean, the bedroom and adjoining bathroom as well as sitting room/study provided an excellent place for me to do the business that took me to DC. The immediate neighborhood is quiet yet within two blocks of shopping, restaurants, the Eastern Market metro stop, the Folger Library... More

Mary Jo runs and extremely friendly and relaxing B&B. The fruit cup at breakfast was beautiful, and the sweets and muffins too enticing despite my diet. It was also nice having a separate room and desk for working. The location is ideal for visitors to Capitol HIll, and a nice retreat from the more busy streets in the area.

Nice B&B at a relatively affordable price. It is within walking distance (10 minutes) from the metro and located on a residential street with moderate traffic. The bedroom has a nice sitting room connected to it and a private bath. Breakfast was a selection of breads and a fruit dish as well as cold cereals, and a great selection of... More
