Marie, the owner, is a delight and operates a clean, comfortable home with several bedrooms, some of which used to be jail cells. We had a large bedroom with bath upstairs. The place is quiet, on a side street but within walking distance to the "downtown" area of some restaurants, a brewery pub, and grocery shopping. Marie makes a bountiful...

We were greeted warmly and given a real key to a room upstairs after providing our breakfast time and choices. Our room was very comfortable with a king bed and good pillows. The bath, while small, was sufficient, clean, and functioned well. We were provided ample and decent towels. Outlets on both sides of the bed, hairdruer, Kleenex, and soaps....

Each year, my family treks along the mighty Yellowhead from Edmonton to Vancouver. We usually break up the long drive with a stop-over in a hotel or campground in the Valemount area. We were not impressed with our previous experiences with the hotels in Valemount and decided to try something new. That's when we found this gem. Rooms: We stayed...

My mom and I stayed here almost a year ago, google maps can't quite find it, but it is find worth returning too once you do. My mom and I stayed in the regular rooms (we had no complaints it was what you would expect from a B&B) but it wasn't until the next morning that we were introduced to...

On her 55th birthday, my wife woke up in a prison cell for the first time in her life! Spending the night at the Jailhouse B&B, in the course of a family holiday motoring around western Canada, was indeed a memorable experience. The property is a former RCMP police house, and owner Marie has done a brilliant job in preserving...

The concept of this B&B is really cute. A converted former town jail into a bed and breakfast. But what needs to be done is put good mattresses into those tiny cells. It would be a worthy investment and improve the Jailhouse B&B 100%. I can live with the very tiny rooms (cells). Even the 'family room' was VERY small...

I don't normally like Beds and Breakfasts but this is my one exception. The lady that runs the former police station/jail is very nice and the location is good for walking to restaurants and the pub in this little town.

I stayed at this B&B overnight on September 13th. The facilities were quite good but not luxurious. The proprietress was friendly. However, when I told her I was concerned about my room being too cold to sleep in, she said she could not put the heat on just to warm one room. There was extra bedding but I find duvets...

JailhouseBB, Owner at Jailhouse Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Hello Brian I am sorry you were disappointed in my property, and had an uncomfortable experience. Unfortunately, yes, a B & B is in a home and the walls are not sound proof, so it was unavoidable that you could hear the young child in the next room. In addition to extra blankets and/or quilts all bedrooms are equipped with...

We did stay there last year and would certainly stay there again. Marie was very accommodating for my family and was a gracious host. It's certainly a novelty and an experience sleeping in the old "jail". Can't beat the view surrounding the Jailhouse! Breakfast was very good.

Hubby and I usually stay at motels/hotels but we realized we were paying for hot tubs and pools etc that we never used and that there was a cost to all those 'extras'. On a recent road trip to Jasper we decided to stay in Valemount for 2 nights and just drive the 1/2 hr to the park. Marie's b&b...
