We stayed here 2 nights in September. This is a pleasant, quiet, and clean motel. We were able to walk to nearby restaurants and lots of interesting shops nearby. Service was good and staff were helpful on our arrival. We would definately return here if we were in the area again.

On the surface the Bluebird Inn is a neat, clean little place to rest one's head - basic rooms that are located in the midst of the village. A great location. But if you want to see another side of this place then spend a few dollars more, and take a creekside room in the back. The rooms there are... More

We stayed for a night on a recent road-trip and were very happy with our experience of this motel. We had a very friendly welcome, our room was clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect. As we had a long drive the next day we took coffee and cake (which the hotel kindly wrapped) away with us for breakfast.

Cute and clean but nothing special. No coffee in the room but it is available in the lobby at 7:30am which is a bit late for the early risers. My husband wakes about 6am, waited 1&1/2 hours for coffee and then there were only tiny stirafoam cups that he had to carry upstairs to our room. They did have complimentary... More

Welcoming staff and comfortable motel in a great little town. You can walk to a great selection of restaurants and shops from this location. We were there in October and experienced the town Scarecrow Festival - brilliant.

This a very comfortable stop over on the route between S F and LA. Good value for clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. Free wifi. Needs a bit of updating in terms of furnishings but this in a sense adds to its charm. Can walk to good restaurants and perfectly situated in the old part of town. We ate at Linns -... More

This nice little Inn is right in the center of the old part of town so you are within walking distance of all the antique stores, etc. They serve coffee and pound cake in the lobby for breakfast and the internet is free. The only draw back is that Cambria is a dead zone in terms cell service and if... More

We stayed for 1 night and our room was wonderful. It was clean and the bed was comfortable We slept very well as it was really quiet. Hearst Castle is about a 15 minute drive. No breakfast served here, only pound cake and hot drinks. Cambria is a small beautiful charming town. Good place to sleep over if you’re driving... More

Old-school charm that has been well maintained @ a fair price. Back in the 1950s when the Bluebird was probably just opening, I can imagine it was the place to be (maybe the only place to be in little Cambria) and like an aging star it has it's issues (thin walls, smallish bed/room, no fancy breakfast) still the place has...
