J. Palen House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 13 Cleveland B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 12, 2014

My wife and I spent a night in The Roost during our 3rd anniversary weekend. It was perfect! When people think of Cleveland, sometimes they (unfairly) don't think of all the character the city has to offer. The Palen House is a great example of Cleveland's hidden gems! It's such an unassuming neighborhood, but smack dab in the middle of a charming old residential section of the city is the Palen House. The Roost is actually a one block walk away from the main house, and it's the old blacksmith's workshop, converted into 3 lofts. It's a really unique place... very nicely done, and good blend of rustic/country charm with modern amenities. The main house was beautifully restored, with great breakfast food and an EXTREMELY accommodating and friendly staff. And all of this was less than a 5 block walk from great restaurants and bars, including the Great Lakes Brewing Company. This place was PERFECT!

We've stayed here several times. I guess I could stop the review there since that should tell you a lot. But, a few specifics: We've stayed in the main house, which is very nice. But our preference is to stay in their other house on Jay Street, just a block away, in the The Roost. Very private, plenty of space, and very quiet. Tastefully charming, and nestled in wonderful Ohio City, which means you're within walking distance to great restaurants, breweries, and eclectic shops that make Ohio City a return weekend destination for us. Oh, and if you're there, you MUST stroll through the West Side Market.

Room Tip: Rent The Roost.

As a fellow B&B owner I can say this Cleveland Bed and Breakfast is the one we would go back to again. Clean, Friendly innkeepers, Lovely food for breakfast and extras that were delicious and well done. If you want a comfortable stay without the feel of the city this would be our recommendation! They just opened a restaurant and the food was excellent! We walked for lunch, dinner the Westside market and so much more!

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.
