When we requested a quote for an extended stay for our large group, the cost & the details J Palen gave us sounded reasonable. After further discussion, we decided to proceed. When we made the reservation, however, the cost was $75 more, due to a cleaning fee they failed to mention. When we pointed out this fee wasn't in the...

After several discussions about what accommodations might be appropriate for your group you selected what might fit your group. After that process a confirmation of dates and policies were sent to the group. It was certainly your choice not to agree to or be willing to accept the private residence requirements and restrictions. There were never any charges made for...

My husband and I stayed here on two different occasions. We had beautiful rooms both times, and the breakfast was fantastic! Diane was very helpful on things to do in the area. She recommended great places to eat. We will be staying here whenever we find ourselves in Cleveland overnight.

My wife and I recently stayed at the J. Palen House for our anniversary. We stayed in a two story apartment called the Roost. It turns out to have been a Blacksmith shop in it's day and now serves as one of the available rooms for the Palen House B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful...

A co-worker and I on an overnight trip to Cleveland each had a beautiful room and stay at the J. Palen House in the "Ohio City" section of Cleveland. The location was selected for its proximity to our business, however the B & B is within a 3 minute walk to the Westside Market, and a great selection of restaurants...

We stayed at the main house. Beautiful antiques and confortable living spaces were everywhere. It was very well centered in Ohio City walking distance from the Brewery, West Side Market and downtown. We were there when the transit system was hosting a fair so we were able to see some street entertainment and street markets, and auto show and try...

We spent one night at the J. Palen House. After a stressful winter, this was a nice overnight treat. Even though we live locally, it was nice to get away from the daily routine and have someone take care of us. The location is superb and walking distance from the West Side Market. Our room was quiet, warm and cozy....

My boyfriend and I just returned from a long weekend at J Palen House and can't say enough good things!! We stayed in The Retreat and it is hands down one of the best places I have ever stayed. The decor is tasteful and somewhat timeless and not stuffy and outdated like many B&B's. The location is superb! Can't beat...

My girlfriend and I spent last weekend at J. Palen house in The Retreat, a room in side building a block away from the main house. We couldn't have been happier! Cozy room and a great common room, snacks, and convenient champagne glasses and Keurig coffee maker. The hosts were very nice and breakfast was tasty. Our hostess recommended nearby...

We had an amazing anniversary weekend at the Retreat! Quiet, beautiful room, comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom with jacuzzi tub! Yummy homemade treats everynight, not to mention breakfast! Homemade and delicious, different each morning! Walking distance to West Side Market, a great experience, and right around the corner from funy restaurants and bars. So incredibly relaxing, we will be back!
