Charming place to stay. The Motel is a little old but is well maintained. The room are clean and well kept. The bluebird is right down town and is close to everything. The bluebird has a nice lobby area and the staff are friendly.

The rooms were pretty simple, and a bit dated, but were clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast wasn't anything too exciting but it's nice to have the option. However, the price, friendly staff, the quaint lobby area, and the easy walk to plenty of shops and restaurants made this a great stay in Cambria. We'd stay here again... More

The location in the heart of Cambria is within walking distance of many restaurants and shops in the town, It is only 8 miles from Hearst Castle which makes it a great choice to stay when visiting the Castle or a...

Located 8 miles from the Hurst Castle, in the charming town of Cambria, this hotel is not only wonderful for tourists, but would make a great place for a family reunion or a destination wedding if you wanted to be married on the beach. We liked it so much that we stayed two nights.

We were rather disappointed with the very ordinary rooms at a rate of $120. Breakfast, comprised of coffee and pastry, doesn't start until 7:30am, when most people , who are traveling through are already gone. It's a place to sleep and go for too much money.

The Bluebird is not fancy but quaint and comfortable. The rooms have everything you need. We had a smaller inexpensive room and still had plenty of drawer space, flat screen TV, free WiFi, and 2 chairs. The bathroom was immaculate (this is one of my pet peeves when traveling). Danielle who answered the phone was lovely and very helpful. The... More

My group had a short one-night stay at this hotel. Check-in was quick and the staff friendly and helpful with finding a place to eat. They have a book of local menus to look through. Plenty of parking on-site. Hotel is older in terms of furniture and decor but seems well-maintained. We stayed in a 2-room suite, which split between... More

Everything you need is in the room except no coffee maker, or telephone. The lobby has coffee. tea or chocolate mix until 10 PM. Mattress was pretty comfortable and the pillows were medium quality. Appreciated that they... More

We stayed for 2 nights and our room was wonderful. It was clean and spacious for the 4 of us. We had a fireplace and balcony in our room. We enjoyed using the fireplace and could see various birds using the feeder from our balcony. We had a restful night's sleep, really quiet. Hearst Castle is about a 15 minute... More

My sister, niece and I stayed for three nights in Cambria, a small, accommodating town right off the freeway. As was mentioned, the motel is centered within walking distance from several restaurants, and a variety of shops from antiques to children's clothing. It was convenient to travel to nearby towns by car not only to Hearst Castle but the Lighthouse... More
