Came to Cleveland for the first time for a weekend getaway and chose to stay at J Palen House. We arrived after the official check-in time slot of 3-5PM, but were given detailed instructions on everything from how to gain access to the building to where the light switch was in our bedroom! Music was on in the living room...

The room was very neat and unique! We stayed in the retreat room! Definitely a different side of Cleveland! The staff (well we only met the one lady) was very nice and helpful (I left my curling iron at home so she let me borrow what she had!) A few things we didn't care for- parking was horrible we drove...

We were there this weekend and stayed in the Retreat Room. It is not in the main house, but in another building on the next block. We got there late, but were given very good directions on where to find the key and get into the property. We were greeted with cozy lighting and soft music. There were munchies in...

I have stayed at the J. Palen House on several visits to Ohio in the past year. The Roost is by far my favorite suite to book, with a loft bedroom, a cozy living room/kitchenette and a nice private patio. The accommodations are very comfortable and the gourmet breakfast with fresh fruit and juices is the icing on the cake....

PARKING NIGHTMARE! There is "NO" guarantee that there will be a parking spot after you drive back to your room! Their website encouraged walking distance to several of these local attractions, but actually "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" is 2 miles away.

We appreciate all our guests feedback as this is the only way we can improve. We have searched our records and you are correct.....you have never..... stayed at the Inn so we cannot address your concerns personally. To aid prospective guests, you are correct, we do not assign specific parking spaces to specific guests or rooms unless you have a...

The B&B is situated in an old house with all the features still in it. Original panelling, ceilings, stars and lead glassed windows: beautiful! We were greeted by a friendly and welcoming Diane, owner of the B&B. She informed us about where to go and what to do, but also about what not to do, which is always appreciated. Our...

We are from Akron, and decided to take a quick getaway to Ohio City where the restaurants are great and everything is walkable. Our stay at J Palen far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in The Roost - cozy and lovely loft suite with a lovely outdoor private patio surrounded by greenery. The bed and pillows were terrific and made...

We stayed in the Webster room: king bed, jacuzzi tub, large shower, private balcony. We were surprised how private the balcony was considering we were in Ohio City and within walking distance of the Westside Market. Go to the Market: the produce is beautiful. It was like walking through an art display. We found the room comfortable and nicely appointed...

This was planned on short notice on our way further west. The accomodations are in a well maintained neighborhood referred to as Ohio City apart from downtown Cleveland. The area has a separate personality, business, shop and restaurant district. Nice area to walk and browse. Nearby "farmers" market was a nice surprise. Don't forget the "Christmas Story" house not far...

Who knew this awesome bed and breakfast existed a few miles from Lake Erie, baseball, rock and roll, downtown Cleveland? I am so glad I stumbled onto their website! Charming in every conceivable way with a hostess to match. Thank you Diane!
