“Wonderful stay, great conversation, friendly host!”
Reviewed 29 January 2011

Lovely B&B in downtown Cleveland, central to everything! Robin was a gracious and helpful host, and the quaint, historic feel of the inn makes for a great stay for the weekend or a longer stay.

Due to the building's age, the inn is not very handicap-accessible, which was not an issue for me. I believe Robin would have been upfront with this, had it been an issue.

Overall, great B&B. Highly recommended!

We cannot thank the Innkeeper enough for such a wonderful experience in such a perfectly wonderful period house. Robin was there to attend to our every need. He made us feel like movie stars. We felt like Audrey Hepburn coming and going into glamorous, cosmopolitan, yet comfortable, warm and casual surroundings at the Brownstone Inn. No detail was left unattended, from luxurious baths fully furnished with the best personal care products to the lavish, wonderful breakfast in the formal diningroom that somehow feels like home. Robin Yates goes out of his way to make sure his guests feel pampered and at home. He is the quintessential host, and his knowledge of Cleveland both past and present is unsurpassed. He peaked our curiousity and made us do a little exploring on our own. Guess what,? ? We discovered that Cleveland is an absolute world class city. Thank you Robin for a great experience. We will surely stay here againj.

A group of four stayed at the Brownstone Inn Downtown while visiting Cleveland for a long weekend. Although the reviews here were fantastic, we had no idea the treat we were in for! The accomodations were fantastic. We were given the entire 3rd floor to ourselves, which included one double room, two single rooms and two bathrrooms, as well as a private sitting area. The beds were super comfy, the rooms spotlessly clean. Robin, the owner, goes above and beyond to insure his guests have everything they need.

We loved the breakfasts - delicious, hot breakfasts every morning, eggs, market fresh vegetables and fruits, artisan breads...no continental breakfast here, it was more like brunch! And the coffee was perfect.

Robin was the perfect host - so knowlegeable about the city, his suggestions and reccomendations were spot on. He immediately made us feel welcome, we loved his wit and charm.

The inn is centrally located, no more than a few minutes ride to any of the attractions we visited. Ample free parking on the street. And the rates are really very reasonable, especially considering all that the Inn has to offer.

Would we stay here again? Without a doubt, an unqualified YES!

We stayed at the Brownstone for a few nights during our first visit to Cleveland. The area immediately surrounding the B&B isn't much to look at, but it's easy to get from there to all the great spots in Cleveland. Freeways are just a few minutes away and the proprietor, Robin, is a fountain of information. He's our favorite kind of host: there when you need him, and out of your way when you don't.

Two of the other rooms were in use during our stay, but noise was never an issue. Neither was street noise. It probably helped that the room was equipped with an air purifier, which added some white noise.

If we're ever back in Cleveland, the Brownstone will be our first stop.

I wasn't sure what to expect on this one, I've come to trust TripAdvisor but the reviews seemed almost too good to be true. What we found was a charmingly historic brownstone with all the elegance promised and more. Rich with antique furnishings and the necessary comforts of today, we loved our short two day stay at Robin's sanctuary. Speaking of Robin, what a gem! He's a very gracious host, a knowledgeable Cleveland transplant and a fantastic chef! Kudos to Robin and to the city of Cleveland for throwing out the welcomed mat!
Words of advice, if you're looking for a TV in your room, forget it; although I would guess as accomodating as Robin was if you asked he'd probably try to make it happen.
