“"Simply the best, hands down"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

My partner and I stayed at Wallace Manor for three nights on our way home to Michigan from New York. I had not read any reviews and was not certain what to expect other than what was written on the website. Fortunately, we were pleasantly surprised. The home is beautiful, clean and well decorated without being ostentatious. We have stayed in many B&B's that were cluttered with antiques. I appreciated Scott's, the owner, ability to see simple elegance far out weights an over indulgence in artifacts. He has done an exceptional job in maintaining the historical character of the home while carving out a modern, sophisticated vibe. Love It!!
I have to mention how gracious Scott is as a host. He's very kind, gentle and personable. He truly impressed me, which is difficult to do. He undoubtedly goes the extra mile to make his guest feel at home. The simple things meant so much. I really enjoyed his sitting in the library talking and laughing with us. I would highly recommend Wallace Manor. I can't imagine anyone walking away with anything other than a great experience. Don't forget to ask him to serve the house breakfast special, Benedict Wallace (grits, topped with spinach and pooched eggs.) It was marvelous.

I cannot say enough good things about Wallace Manor! I went to Cleveland for a weekend theater trip, spending a great time during the day on Saturday and Sunday exploring the city. Wallace Manor is well-located and was invariably only five-to-15 minutes from anywhere I wanted to go. It is located in an interesting urban neighborhood of beautiful old Victorian houses, many of which are still in the process of being gentrified. Although I loved exploring Cleveland, my room at Wallace Manor was so comfortable, the common rooms so elegant, and my B & B hosts so gracious and charming, I would have enjoyed a "staycation" right on premises almost as much. Coming from Washington, D.C., the room rates also seemed extremely reasonable. I hope to return to Wallace Manor with my husband very soon. Who knew Cleveland could be so romantic? Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The Walnut Room was my favorite. It is especially specious. All the beds are comfortable and have...

When I arrived for my romantic Valentine's weekend with my partner, I wasn't sure what to expect. While I had done my research on TripAdvisor, it's still something you can never be sure of until you personally step foot into the building. Happily, the reviews were 100% correct! Scott is a wonderful host who always manages to make his guests feel at home, but also pampered.

Whether it was the lovely bed linens on the most comfortable bed in the world, the complimentary water/soda, the delicious and amazing breakfasts (we are still talking about the bacon from the West Side Market), or the simple touches that showed how much pride and care that he takes in his work, we were enchanted by every element of our time.

I agree with the reviewer who said the photos on the website don't do the Inn justice. It is beautifully and lovingly restored and I wish I had more time to spend there, basking in the peacefulness of this amazing inn.

My only regret is that it was a little too chilly to try out the hot tub behind the inn, but Scott always made us aware it was available.

We cannot recommend this B and B enough, it should be booked solid every weekend! Of course, I wish selfishly that it wasn't, so that I can return again and again.

Wallace Manor is perfect. My girlfriend and I stayed for four nights while visiting Cleveland, and we enjoyed every minute at Wallace Manor. The house including the bedrooms is beautiful, and Scott is a wonderful host. He served us an amazing breakfast each morning (at a time convenient for us) with delicious ingredients from the West Side Market. We utilized all the common areas including playing a beautiful baby grand piano. Unfortunately, we did not get around to using the hot tub even though Scott graciously left towels out for us. Next time we hope to take advantage of it. You will love your stay at Wallace Manor.

My boyfriend and I attended an event in Cleveland at the Wolstein Center. We wanted to stay somewhere close. My boyfriend had never stayed in a B&B before. After reading the reviews and looking through the owners website, I decided to choose Wallace Manor. The website photos do not do the house justice. The owner, Scott, has restored the home and added some modern touches. The heated bathroom floor was especially nice on the cold January morning. The bed was so comfortable. The linens were top-notch and the towels were luxurious. The owner is very nice. The breakfast consisted of food from the local market. The bacon, waffles, and fresh blueberries were scrumptious. We will definitely stay at Wallace Manor should we ever find ourselves back in Cleveland.

I have stayed at Wallace Manor numerous times when I visit friends and family in the area. Coming from NYC, I'm looking for someplace quiet, yet close to things that keep drawing me back. It's super close to one of my favorite locations in Cleveland, the Westside Market: a place to go if you are a foodie.

Wallace Manor is a grand building right in the heart of Cleveland's historic district: Ohio City. It is located 2 blocks from Rte 2 and a mile away from Rte 90. There are 3 rooms available and I chose the most economical room, The Cleveland Room. The room is really comfortable, like visiting home. They definitely used top-quality sheets and towels. The attached bath was immaculate.

The rooms about the house were beautiful yet comfortable., you can tell the owner takes great pride in his house. After a long day of being out and about, it was nice sitting on the side porch and just relaxing. The den has a nice tv and comfortable furniture for relaxing for the evening. For a quieter time, there are two separate sitting rooms.

I will definitely be booking again next year when I take my next trip to Cleveland.

Room Tip: There are three rooms, two rooms face Franklin Ave, and one room faces the side gardens. All three...

My husband and I had a wonderful 4 night stay here and can't wait to go back. The manor really is an oasis in the city. So close to shopping and wonderful restaurants. A short drive to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and if that isn't your fancy the Football Hall of Fame is a short drive away.
You won't go wrong with any room you choose but we chose the Wallace Room with the king bed. The room was nicely decorated, the king bed very comfortable and I loved the claw bathtub. The owner has even made sure you have bath salts to enjoy it.
We loved hearing the history of the manor and how each room was renovated from original materials not only from the manor it self but from the surrounding area.
Make sure to take advantage of the hot tub and the lovely yard while you are there.
The breakfasts were delicious every day and always with an array of fresh fruit. One morning we had the most amazing eggs benedict and another home made waffles with fresh maple syrup right from the area.
Scott, the owner always made sure there was an ample supply of bottled water for me and beer for my husband. You can have tea or coffee 24 hours a day if that is your desire too.
He has lots of recommendations for restaurants and even if the outside of some of them might look a bit iffy, trust us, the food was amazing and the prices very reasonable.
Our stay was so relaxing and I can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Make sure to check out the Market Place while you are there.
