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... More

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... More

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... More

Wherever and whenever possible, we prefer B&B to hotels and motels. We have stayed in Valemount, BC, before and prefer the B&B's to the motels there.This is our first time at Jailhouse. B&B's tend to be cleaner, and Jailhouse B&B is not exception. We had the twin room: it's on the small side, but since we only use it for... More

This Bed and Breakfast is located in the old Valemount Police Station and Jail. Some of the rooms are in what used to be jail cells. They also have rooms in the former police station (same building). The host is very friendly and helpful and makes a great full breakfast. A fun place to stay in beautiful Valemount.

This was the first stop for my boyfriend, my dog, and me on a road trip through Canada to Alaska, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! The beds were comfy, the rooms were clean, and the owner was responsive and welcoming. We enjoyed our conversations with her about things to do and see in the... More

We recently stayed a night at the Jailhouse B&B. We have stayed at many B&B's so generally we compare one to the other. Although this is a decent B&B it could use a little improvement to be really great. When we arrived, Marie, the owner, was outside. She directed us to go inside and upstairs as that was where our...

Dear WingNutt I normally let a little criticism go unaddressed, but after your very thorough and negative analysis of my property, I feel compelled to tell my side of the story. I am sorry that my home did meet your expectations of a five star hotel with large spacious rooms with air conditioning, sound proof walls and a bathroom large... More

We highly recommend this B & B (formerly the town jail) if you are in the Valemount BC area. Marie, the host, runs a fantastic place and the breakfast was the best! Chinook salmon were spawning in the nearby stream and jumping out of the water at Rearguard Falls (a few miles from Valemount) which were both amazing sites and... More

This B&B has been cleverly converted from it's prior use as the local RCMP station. The two jail cells have been retained, one in its original form, the other modified to accept a queen bed in addition to the two bunks. The occupants graffiti has also been left intact, it is all very authentic, except of course, for the comfortable... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, on our way to Vancouver and back 2 weeks later. Maria, the owner, was an excellent host. She gave us information on surrounding activities, restaurants. She spent time reading books with my 3 year old daughter who was calling her grandma!:) Overall it was a unique experience sleeping in a former jail in a... More
