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

I was quite surprised at how nice this motel was considering the seedy look of the exterior and the location. It was quite clean inside the room. It was also air conditioned, the beds had soft clean sheets, new bathroom facilities (toilet, tub). For 90 a night though, it seemed a bit steep for a motel. If it was 70... More
