We had a wonderful experience staying at The Kabat House a part of the J. Palen House Bed & Breakfast in August 2012, but their practices have changed dramatically in the last six months!! I am rating this experience as 1 star, because zero stars is not an option. When I spoke by telephone today to the innkeeper to make...

Great place. Very cozy, quiet, and clean. We stayed here during the holidays while visiting family. Service was excellent. We even slept in a couple of days and missed the cleaning service, so on the second day they left a whole set of fresh toiletries and towels outside of our door. So kind. We stayed in the Miller Suite, which...

Great location for exploring Cleveland. The location is in easy walking distance to a great many restaurants and to the West Side Market. We were in town to ride at Ray's Indoor Mountain Bike Park and this location was perfect. Less than 10 minutes from the park. We stayed in Palen's Room in the "Loft". Palen's room was very comfortable,...

Go figure. I'm a life long Northeast Ohio resident and I plan a get away weekend in downtown Cleveland. To celebrate my wife's birthday she suggested we go low key this year. After 38 years of marriage I know what that means. After reading a review about the J Palen House B & B in the Cleveland Plain Dealer it...

I called on a Thursday to check availability and was easily able to book a stay the following night. My wife and I couldn't arrive at check-in time and were accommodated with ease. We booked a room called the studio, located a short walk from the main house. The studio was a great place to stay - private but in...

We went to Market Garden Brewery for my husband's birthday, and as we didn't want to drive home afterward, I had reserved the Palen room as a surprise for him. The reservation experience was very pleasant, and the room was clean and lovely. We had a very relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi tub before dinner, and slept amazingly on the...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the J Palen House on December 8. We were in Clevelend for our anniversary (wanting to go to the zoo and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). We stayed in The Studio (which is a block or two away from the main house). It was gorgeous inside! Everything was immaculate and welcoming. The Studio...

My husband and I spent a getaway weekend at the J. Palen House. Loved the delicious breakfast - Diane had no problem catering to our gluten-free diet. Our room was cozy and spacious. We loved being in walking distance of so many restaurants and the West Side Market.

But that we now had here but one ten thousand of those Bed & Breakfasts across America as memorable as the J. Palen House. Apologies to the Duke of Westmoreland, but the Palen House in Cleveland’s Ohio City is truly special. Diane the proprietor runs a tight enterprise yet makes it look seamless as all the best do. No details...

My husband and I alternate planning our anniversary weekends and this year, our 11th, was my turn. There are a lot of options in Ohio but I settled on J. Palen House in Cleveland based on all the glowing reviews and also that I could have a jacuzzi in my room. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived...
