I was in the Vancouver Islands with my family, so we decided to stay at this place. The price is good but the customer service and the conditions are ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. So we walk into our "first" room and my mom lays on the bed after a long 12 hour drive and a few moments later we notice the bathroom... More

Good price, clean rooms and friendly staff. The location is great - lots of restaurants near by, close to the ferry and the inner harbour. Very easy to find. Would definitely recommend it for the price.

We stayed at this surprisingly clean and freshly renovated little hotel for one night during our visit to Vancouver Island. Quite affordable and staff were pleasant, making the overall experience great. Will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

We stayed one night here. The rooms are simple and somewhat out-dated, but they're clean and the price is significantly lower than other motels, so good value for your money, hence the 4 stars. The owner is very kind. Wifi is good (and free).

Nicely updated and clean rooms, easy to find and very affordable. Close to downtown and all its amenities. We had a great experience at the Bluebird hotel and would highly recommend it to any family or friends looking to stay on a budget in a nice clean room.

We were super impressed on value for what it cost to stay at the Bluebird. We also found the location easy to find and close to a number of amenities. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the city and area. Would definitely stay if we are in the area again!

After a long day of traveling with my family the Bluebird Motel was a pleasant surprise. It is located very close to the ferry which was convenient. With two very tired children I needed to make an unplanned stop there. The price was great as we were on a budget and the room was comfortable and clean. Not fancy but... More

Missed the ferry, had to get a room for the night. First room I was given hadn't even been made up, was given another one, it was horrible . Closed the curtains and the sheers fell off onto the floor. Never touched the bed, just went to the couch.All kinds of shady people walking around the parking lot all night,... More

I'm sorry to hear that your experience at our motel was not pleasant, I will work with my staff to make sure that room inventory is correct. I was surprised that you did not find our rooms comfortable, we have just recently renovated with new mattress, bedding, flat screen TVs, furnishings as well as updating all the fixtures in the...
