804 Miette Guest House
Ranked #48 of 57 Jasper B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 30, 2011

We usually stay in cabins when we visit Jasper so can’t say how Miette House compares to other guest houses in the area, but overall impressions were good and the house was neat, well situated and run by very warm and welcoming hosts. Located within easy walking distance from the town centre, the building is a tad featureless, but spotless and well maintained, with a couple of outside tables for guests to enjoy and plenty of parking on the street outside. There are six rooms, four of which are located in the basement, with nos. 1&2 on the ground floor. Ashley welcomed us and showed us to our room (No.1) and urged us to contact her if we needed anything. Although small, our room was clean and perfectly adequate for our needs, coming with a flat screen TV, coffee machine and bathroom with bath. The bed was comfortable and we slept well, though we did hear groups of people walking back along the street late at night and our room was close to the front door which could potentially have been a problem but wasn’t. Guests can also make use of the impeccable kitchen to store or cook their food/meals (no breakfast is provided and they are not licensed to operate an oven, but a microwave is available, as is a large fridge) and a couple of washing/drying machines which come in very handy if you are out hiking. The owners also run a restaurant (and offer a 10% discount to guests) and will store your bags for you if you are away on a multi-day hike. Miette Guest House is an excellent option for those on a restricted budget and provides better value/service than many of Jasper’s cheaper hotels. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are on the ground floor, the others are in the basement.

Miette Guest House is conveniently located, just a short walk to the centre of town. Accommodations are basic, but our room was very clean and quite comfortable. The owners were extremely friendly and happy to recommend local restaurants and sites. Walls are thin though, so we did awake to the sound of small children running in the hall outside the room.

Great value and we'd certainly stay here again.

We were greeted in Alberta by greedy park rangers wanting a $8.50 each per day entry fee to the national park, you can avoid paying this if you're not staying overnight. Miette House ins in a great location, short walk to town. Soto greated us and gave us the gen on the accomodation, as his wife Ashley was not well. He did a great job of informing us of the local places of interest and the wildlife, of which there's plenty. No frills here, no brekky, but plenty to choose from in Jasper. Loads of eating places to suit all tastes. Our hosts also run a bar & bistro in Jasper and give discount. Jasper even has a cinema. Make sure you visit Athabasca falls.

Miette Guest House ticked all the right boxes for my wife & I. Our unit was very comfortable & spotless, as were the shared kitchen, eating & laundry facilities. An easy 7 min stroll put you in the centre of town or at the train station, which was important to us as we had no car. Ashley & Soto were extremely friendly, always interested in our activities & ever ready to offer advice & suggestions. We also enjoyed our meal at their Downstream Restaurant. When our stay at Miette was reduced by 1 day, in order to connect with the train service back to Vancouver, Soto did not hesitate to refund our money. It was totally unexpected and typical of his friendly attitude. If we are ever fortunate enough to visit Jasper again we know where will stay.

804 Miette Guest House - Good location within walking distance from the main street. This guest house was clean and the beds were very comfortable which ensured a good night sleep. Soto, the owner, was very helpful providing details of local walks and restaurants - recommending a range of good restaurants in addition his own which was a very fun place and the elk steak was delicious - we would recommend it!
Compared to the other places in Jasper this was the cheapest we could find and so were a bit worried about the quality. When we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised to find a basic, but clean room with a lovely bright clean kitchen and the owners were available to call at any time.

The only down side was the feeling that the sound travelled quite well between rooms. We didnt actually hear other people but felt a little like we had to be quiet or would be heard. This was not a big issue however. We would not even consider staying anywhere else if we returned to Jasper - it would definitely be 804 Miette!

Only stayed one night between trains and didn't take advantage of the kitchen facilities, after all we were on holiday so had breakfast downtown. Ashley and Soto very welcoming and dined at Downstream, Soto's restaurant. We wish them well in Greece next year for their wedding.

We consider ourselves very flexible and adaptable but we were disappointed in the quality of this accommodation. The owners were very polite and helpful....and offered lots of information about the town..... but only when they were there!!!!!!! The house itself was situated in a nice quiet residential area, an easy walk into town. However,
we had a large gloomy room in the basement, which was divided into a sitting area and bed area. It was disconcerting that the windows were high up and people passing by on the outside path could look down into your room, so therefore one had to keep the curtains semi closed most ot the time. The furniture was basic. The bed was very soft, and old soft pillows. We had brushed nylon pillowcases and sheets, which I thought had gone out in the 50's!! There was a kitchen area and a bathroom in the suite. The kitchen was basically a row of cupboards and nothing in the drawers, no utensils, nothing. The coffee machine didn't work.
We could microwave food in the shared kitchen (very pleasant and airy, as well as spotlessly clean), BUT the cooker would not switch on, and when we enquired why, we were told Health and Safety Laws said they couldn't let us use the cooker in case of fire! (Huh??? this is self-catering???). So if there were a few people in the kitchen at the same time, wanting to prepare food, you had to wait. Also had to wait for the computer (this was also in the kitchen area, so not much privacy there then). Not enough chairs in the kitchen either , which was awkward.
Our room was not serviced one day when we were there, and no-one was around to tell, when we came back, so we tidied things up ourselves. Glad to leave when we did.
We just got the impression that this was an inexperienced young couple, trying their hand at B & B, and provided only the basics, in order to make some money. A bit more comfort and thought and upgrading the room contents would make all the difference.
