“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

My wife and I travel between New York and Chicago by car quite often and have been looking for a nice place stay as a half way point. Cleveland's Ohio city fits the bill. I t has great restaurants and bars to help us unwind after driving eight hours. Now we have found the perfect place to spend the night. J. Palen house has well appointed rooms comfortable beds and updated bathrooms. The owner thinks of thoughtful details such as water bottles in the entrance hall, to leaving out pastries and coffee for guests with an early departure. We thought we were only staying one night and ended up staying two. We look forward to our return in a couple of weeks.

Room Tip: all the rooms are nice

It is the second time we have stayed here and we plan on many more! Very nice, clean, and quaint! Excellent location with lots of dining options! West Side Market is a must! Diane and her staff work hard to make your stay enjoyable! Highly Recommended!

My wife and I stayed at J.Palen in the roost suite for our anniversary. It was a incredible weekend and Diane was a wonderful host. Breakfast was very delicious. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Room Tip: The Roost is a two level suite nice little kitchenette and private entrance, and private patio.

We had a great stay at the J. Palen House. The room was gorgeous, and very clean. Diane was wonderful. The B&B was located within walking distance of a lot of great restaurants and bars. Perfect! The room was large and spacious, had a beautiful bathroom and jacuzzi tub. The balcony was nice, too. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at J Palen while in Cleveland to see Cher. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was in one of several buildings operated by the owner. The building had a full kitchen with a living room area. Our room was quaint, clean and comfortable. We had a big and beautiful jacuzzi with terry cloth robes. And the breakfast was excellent! If we stay in Cleveland again we will stay at J Palen House. Finally, it is close to Great Lakes Brewery and some fine restaurants.

My wife and I spent an extra night in Cleveland after a business trip. Moved from a downtown convention hotel to the J Palen House. Beautiful old Victorian restoration in a quiet neighborhood near the West Side Marketplace. We stayed in the "barn" around the corner from the main house and were treated to private, multi-level quarters, housing a kitchen, living room, and hallway, on the first floor, and two bedrooms and a huge master bath on the second floor. Comfortable furniture and king bed, with a mixture of beautiful antiques and modern fixtures. Huge spa-bath for those who like to relax. Home-made breakfast the next morning with other guests (family style) made the stay more interesting. Our only complaint was that the weather was warm for early May and the AC was not hooked up yet.

Lots of great restaurants within walking distance plus the marketplace itself is only a few blocks away. I would highly recommend J Palen House if you visit Cleveland and don't want the usual big hotel experience. Rock & Roll HOF a must, and, for football fans, the Pro Football HOF is only an hour away. Well worth the trip to Canton.
