excellent very homey very clean Received a gift certificate from my daughter and son-in-law. They have stayed here two years in a row. Would recommend it to everyone. we stayed in the Roost. Owners were wonderful. Walking distance to restaurants, grocery store etc. Bed was king and very very comfortable. Loved the fireplace as it was a bit cool at this time of year.

This was one of the best B&B's we've experienced. Our hostess was an absolute gem with lots of great info and so welcoming. Her assistant was extremely kind and helpful too. An added bonus was the restaurant also owned by our hostess that was delightful too. Not even the 6" snow that was dumped on us spoiled the great time we had. proximity to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame was a plus, lots of local restaurants and wonderfully comfortable rooms.

Room Tip: We loved being in the main house.

Cleveland in winter is sweet at the J.Palen House. Cozy fireplace, charming,well furnished,all the extras surrounded by fun restaurants,pubs,and the incomparable West Side market. Diane could not have been more accommodating to our clinic schedule. We will be back, just not for surgery. First rate. Nothing more to say.

Room Tip: Views and noise are really not an issue. Ours was a 2BR with adjacent cottage and separate upstairs...

We were in Cleveland for a long visit at the Cleveland clinic. We didn't want to stay in a hotel for such a long time and found the J Palen house. It was such a surprise to find this charming cottage in a terrific part of Cleveland! We had everything we needed to make ourselves at home and a neighborhood that filled every need we could think of. A visit to the Westside Market is a must.
Diane was very helpful when I had needs or concerns and was so considerate during my husbands surgery and recovery.
My only negative was the floors were incredibly cold and could benefit from some rugs, but once things warmed up with the gas wood stove we were pretty comfortable. If another trip to Cleveland is in our future we will defiantly choose the J Palen house again.

We came up to Cleveland to celebrate our anniversary and the J. Palen House made us feel like we were part of a family! To begin with, the bed was the most decadent thing I have ever slept in... best night's sleep in a long time! We loved that the location was so close to the Westside Market and were able to just walk over for meals and shopping quite easily. The breakfast we were served was wonderful; I had to request a gluten free option and my meal was just as amazing and plentiful as everyone else's. I didn't feel that I was a burden in any way, even though I was the only one with that plate. We look forward to our next visit!

While the holidays can be a rough time for the best of families and friends, the accommodations at JPH made our Christmas trip enjoyable and stress-free. We stayed in the "Roost" which was a former blacksmith barn. The private space, large bedroom loft, kitchen and convenient parking made the trip enjoyable and totally stress free. We know the Ohio City neighborhood very well and this location was as good as it gets. Walkable to many great restaurants, West Side Market, grocery store and public transportation. The decor was a little kitschy and cluttered for our taste but that's part of the experience, I guess. We were thrilled that we were NOT coerced into forced breakfasts with other Inn guests. Loved the privacy. Would absolutely stay again.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Cottage. Nice amenities like movies, games, and WiFi, plus evening treats! The beds were quite comfortable and a home-cooked breakfast to look forward to in the morning. Very convenient to some great food at local restaurants!
