From other reviews posted we expected more than what we found. When we checked in we were given 2 keys but only one worked. We opened the door and encountered a dingy and stained carpet, so I asked my daughter to keep her shoes on. There were two leather chairs which were really nice, along with a flat screen TV...

This is our second stop. This time we had the Gene Autry room. These rooms are special little places. Very comforting to sleep in. I really enjoy the way they decorate the rooms. A place we would really go back no problem.

Stayed in the Bluebird in April 2014 just overnight. I had driven from Vancouver that day so was pretty tired. My son in law booked me in there when I called to say I wouldn't make it all the way to their place that night. At first, driving in to the parking area, I wondered what he had gotten me...

The motel has fabulous antique furnishings and a bar fridge and microwave in the room as well. The carpets are older and a little stained from the years but clean. Very...

The Bluebird begins with a welcoming desk person. Our room was immaculate and spacious. The heat was quiet and good. We were not aware of road noise. They are pet friendly and made us feel at home with our dog. We travel 12,000 miles a year with our dog and this is a very comfortable stop. There is also a...

What a charming and immaculately clean spot to spend a night after a long day on the road. It is easy to locate and provides a quiet night's sleep. The gardens are well tended and a joy to see. Restaurants are nearby. We highly recommend you try it if you happen to be in Claresholm!

Need a small cottage, full kitchen, renovated bathrooms and quiet location? Well then the Bluebird is the Motel for you. Come and check it out, it is quaint and well suited to folks wanting a peaceful break from the hustle of the Big City :)

Excellent value for the price. This motel is divided into cabin type rooms with kitchenettes stocked with microwaves, as well as kettles and dishes, dish towels and cloths, neatly pressed and hung on a western ironwork rack. The flat screen t.v. hangs over a tableau of country kitch. These fifties and sixties collectables cover most surfaces. Included in our room...
