“bed and breakfast - Mary Jo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

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 to anyone wanting to stay in DC.

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 as the American branch of my family live a few blocks away and all the museums, monuments, metro are within walking distance. We will certainly be recommending it to all our friends in Britain!

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 next stay and catching up with Mary Jo again.

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 good restaurants, etc. But we could have just relaxed and enjoyed conversation with Mary Jo. But don't tell too many people!

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 and Library of Congress, and of course the Capitol. An excellent breakfast too -- not cooked, but including an artful fruit cup, abundant coffee, croissant, cereal, etc. All in all, a place I am glad to have discovered.

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.
