“Kindest host, comfortable accomodations, growing neighborhood”
Reviewed 2 August 2011

We had a wonderful overnight stay. The service is beyond excellent, led by a most kind and welcoming host. The inn is very comfortable and home-like, set in a growing neighborhood experiencing a development resurgence.

Located in historic Ohio City...we walked to many good restaurants and attractions. Short drive to beach, zoo, museums, theater, major league sports.

We stayed in The Palen Room in the Lofts...on a quite street, around the corner from the main house. Properties are meticulously maintained. Attention to details. Outdoor private garden...with comfortable seating.

Our room had a comfortable king. High open beamed ceiling. Really comfortable chairs, great viewing hi-def flat screen. Decorated with expensive and thoughtful antiques. Huge Jacuzzi , plus a luxurious shower. Very quite. Cool air conditioning plus overhead fan. Window that opened too.

Diane is a fantastic host with a big smile who made us feel welcomed the moment we met her. She had tons of high energy...friendly and engaging. She is the person responsible for making this experience excellent. I would recommend this little inn / bed 'n breakfast. This is a great place in the historic district. We had fun. Thumbs up!

We ended up at J Palen on a quick weekend getaway trip to Cleveland after finding it on TripAdvisor, and were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves not only at a great bed & breakfast getaway in the city, but we can't say enough good things about the Old City neighborhood we stumbled upon (thanks to the information binder in the room). While not an overly large area, the walkable streets offer the amazing WestSide market, a brewing company, restaurants, European-style bakeries, a cool discount bookstore and other little shops. Our room was comfortable, clean, and featured a 2-person jacuzzi. One of the owners Diane was our host and also served us breakfast both mornings, she couldn't have been sweeter. It's funny, we're not exactly sure that we would necessarily have a reason to return to downtown Cleveland, but if we ever do or are passing through, we would definitely swing through Old City and stay here again!

We decided to make Cleveland a stop on our road trip to Niagara Falls. We picked the J. Palen House because of it's nearness to the RR HOF and because it was in walking distance to several Food Network featured spots. We could not have been more pleased. The room was excellent and breakfast was exceptional.

I chose Cleveland to celebrate my birthday and my husband found the J Palen House. It was the best choice! We stayed in the Roost and the accommodations were perfect and Scott is a great host. I loved being in a neighborhood where we could walk to restaurants and especially the West Side Market. And it is a short drive to downtown attractions like the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame and great restaurants. I am so glad my husband found the J Palen House. I hope we can celebrate more birthdays in Cleveland!

We came to Cleveland to visit the Rock Hall and thought that would be the highlight of the trip...but the J. Palen House was the highlight! The Inn is perfection with just enough flowery touches to spark romance and all the privacy to enjoy each other. The location among
among all the restaurants of the historic district allowed us to walk to every
everywhere. From fine dining to a local brewery there was something for everyone.
Can't say enough about this wonderful Inn
