... to town. Walking distance to some good food and at least one (Junkgirls!) awesome shop. Stayed one night, driving down from Northern CA as first leg of a 2 week road trip. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was older but quite pleasant, I get the feeling this property is being maintained at status quo.

My family and I stayed here and we really enjoyed it. Lovely location, creek side inn, near lots of shops and restaurants. The friendly staff invited us for snacks and beverages upon arrival. Clean rooms. Nice nature trail behind the motel, we really enjoyed seeing the birds and other wildlife on the walk. Very reasonable rates if you're looking for... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago after a few previous visits. I like the ambiance of the lobby and the rooms are simple and clean. Its proximity to the east village area of Cambria is a plus also. Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell what room rate you will get, despite their rates being listed on their website. When... More

Stopped here on our way down the Pacific coast highway. Very clean,quaint motel in a quiet setting. The suites are large and have a small deck overlooking an adorable bird sanctuary. Other rooms appeared to be nice,basic 60s type lodging at very reasonable rates. The most friendly staff ever. Great coffee and coffee cake in the lobby.

I have stayed here numerous times in my travels and will not stay anywhere else in Cambria. This is the cleanest and has the most curteous staff in town. Rooms are exceptionally clean and the location and price is perfect. Stay here as you will love it also.

We have stayed at the Bluebird Inn several times in the past. The older rooms are adequate, the newer rooms are much better they are facing the creek. Ask for those rooms, either upstairs or down. We preferred the downstairs with the small patios and access to the creek paths. There is a grocery store pound cake and coffee in... More

We had a delightful time at this perfectly situated motel in the wonderful little seaside town of Cambria, California. The Bluebird is clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced, and it has a very friendly staff.

Got the last room available for two nights over Memorial Day Weekend. Room cost extra because it was creekside view. This property is older, as are most in Cambria. Though the room decor was definitely no frills, it was comfortable, quiet and very clean, which is exactly what we wanted. The room had a very comfortable king size bed, a... More

And like going back to another time, when AAA approval ratings meant a lot, pre-internet. The bright look of the Bluebird shows they care about cleanliness, and the welcome mat is out the minute you check in. Actually, before: I reserved from overseas, and it was clear that the Bluebird was well-run and welcoming. A few minutes' walk to good... More

Outdated interior but clean. Friendly staff. They had a car club there the weekend we stayed which they failed to mention and they were very noisy and in some cases took two parking spots. There is shopping and restaurants within walking distance.
