12 of my family stayed here in 4 different rooms between Christmas and New Year's. Everyone we encountered in reception was very friendly and helpful. Including in correcting our reservation - three rooms were checking out a day earlier than they planned - no problem. We liked the lobby with fireplace, piano, newspapers and magazines and complimentary coffee, tea and...

The curb appeal of the Bluebird Motel is great. Very inviting and looks clean. But the interior is another story. The lobby itself was drab, very dark and looked as though a cloud of dust would puff up if you were to sit down. The old lady behind the counter was rude. Why work in customer service if you're going...

We really enjoyed our stay here, we opted for one of the small suites rather than just a room as the price was pretty good, after negotiation. Room was well appointed and very clean. There was a lovely small garden and walk right outside our back door. Staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Good example old good old motel in old town. Flat screen tv almost didnt belong in old style motel. Lots of wildlife and great view from bathroom window. Coffee ready in the lobby in the morning with coffee cake. Walking location to food and shops!

We found this motel to be clean, comfortable and price wise, a good value for budget conscious travelers.. This is not a fancy spot. Other reviews give a good description. It was unseasonably warm while were in Cambria and the room was not air conditioned. The desk person did provide a table fan and we opened the bedroom and bathroom...

This motel is a little dated but so what! It was very clean and very well kept motel. Most of all, it was well located and the advice they gave us about where to have breakfast...well, that was the best food we had on our week-long trip (Redwood Cafe) to California. Our only regret, we didn't spend more time in...

We arrived late in the day and needed somewhere to stay and came across the Bluebird. A warm welcome and good price was offered. The room was very pleasant and clean however the full charm was seen the following morning in daylight. Coffee and cake was freely available in the reception in the morning and there was a pleasant open...

We had a very nice King garden room and the room was very comfortable and very clean. Nice small patio that overlooked a garden area and very private. Only negative was the guests upstairs had a child that ran back and forth in the early morning and sounded like an elephant running across the ceiling. All in all a very...

After visiting the Hearst Castle we checked in to the Blue Bird Motel---we had reserved a room off the garden and it was a real joy to be able to sit outside the room with a glass of wine and enjoy the peace and quiet and even watch a couple of deer munch on the greenery. The decor of the...
