The staff was friendly and helpful, the room spotless, beds very comfortable and there was a Mitsubishi heater/cooler unit that was almost silent. We were in the back, near a field away from the road that the dogs enjoyed, nice and clean. The diner next door was outstanding. It is one of the best places I have ever stayed.

Have stayed here multiple times during three different seasons. Rooms are always spotless. Very comfy bed with super pillows! Staff is attentive, warm and local so they know all about the area. Always enjoy my stay.

I'm always suspect staying at a motel, but I've stayed here a handful of times now and I have to say it's the best motel I've ever stayed at! Very clean and quiet, the rooms are very nice. Complimentary bottled water in the fridge is a great touch! They're also very accommodating in terms of late check-out or late check-in....

We were very happy with our stay. Our room was spotlessly clean, beds are very comfortable, loads of channels to watch and the refrigerator and microwave was a big plus. We would definitely stay here again.

Wasn't sure what to expect. Doesn't look fancy, but the owners pay great attention to detail. Room was spotless, appliances were all modern, and staff was very helpful. Not sure I could have found a better deal for the price. Highly recommended!

We were in the Machias area to do some hiking. We were going to camp, but in mid October we were concerned about the threat of rain at night and it being a bit cold. I was worried about staying at a "Route 1 Motel" but every preconceived notion I had about what the Bluebird Motel might have been went...

Nice staff, older buildings, little small, but nothing wrong with that. Many updates, heat pumps in every room, direct tv, desk, clean beds/rooms. I recommend this motel. The motel uses real keys, not key cards that are disposable. So be mindful of that not to lose them.

The level of service was more than excellent. The room was comfy, very clean and the staff was attentive and warm hearted. We had a room in the back, which made it very quiet. I am only sorry we didn't stay at the Bluebird before, while visiting family in Washington County. We will be sure and visit it in the...

The Bluebird has been our place to stay in this pretty town for 21 years - warm and friendly, family oriented (pets welcome, too), with all the conveniences we need for a comfortable stay - kind, helpful and considerate owners and staff - an excellent example of Downeast hospitality - we'll be back!

The Bluebird Motel is conveniently located, within walking distance of several stores and a super market; three restaurants are within a five-minute drive; and the motel is reasonably priced. The clean room has a fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker, comfy beds with ample covers, comfy pillows, a free bottle of water per guest, and many channels on DirecTV. We...
