I stayed at this Motel for a number of months. The owner works at a local mill and was on the city counsel. His wife is very nice. He has a son in his 20's or 30's who has personal problems and has a history of violence in the motel against his own parents. He drives his truck into the... More

I pre-checked on a rainy day - closed blinds and low-watt light bulbs while we were readying ourselves for refinishing of our wood flooring. Prepaid for the five days we'd be unable to breathe or hear in our home. After moving all the furniture it was 10 pm, the lightbulb in the bathroom had been installed - O.M.G. - the... More

I stayed at the Bluebird Motel while my floors were being refinished. It has a covenant location and has a feel of an older "classic motel", however, most people would and should not stay there because it is dirty and unsafe. The woman owner took had no problem telling us that they did not have a cleaning staff and that... More

Rooms are dirty and beyond offensive. Sheets smelling of previous visitors, as bedding had not been changed. Noisy street with lots of traffic, in an industrial part of town. A truly awful hotel in an otherwise pretty city.

The rooms are comfortable and very clean, this isn't a hotel with new carpets fyi, it's a motel for people looking for a good price who aren't overly picky. The owners are really really nice people who will treat you like family. The place was very clean for me, all the kitchen stuff looked brand new it was so clean.... More

We stayed at this motel, if you can call it that, on our way to Tofino this past December. We travel and stay in hotels quite often and I have never stayed somewhere so disgusting and unapologetically so. Please stay away from this motel for the sake of your sanity and your health. The room was not cleaned prior to... More
