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

The Bluebird is an older motel that has been updated and well maintained. The staff was quite pleasant from the opening booking on the phone through check in and check out. Located in the town, the motel has restaurants and shops within walking distance.

We have stayed here a few times before and it remains an excellent place to stay while in Cambria. All the staff are friendly and helpful. Room is clean and comfortable. We have only stayed in the garden view rooms because the other rooms in the side buildings are already booked when we decide to make the trip. Do love... More

We stayed in room 29 which was at the end of our building on the second floor. Check-in was pleasant and all the people we dealt with at the Inn were very personable and helpful. Room 29 is fairly small, however the inn has rooms of varying sizes including rooms with balconies overlooking a creek (currently dry) and beautiful gardens.... More

Wonderful hotel close to downtown, beautiful creekside location, great and inviting staff. Clean, great quality. Highly recommend! My son said "I've never seen a hotel of such high quality!". Great little town. Try the ollallieberry pie!

My friend and I spent 1 night here on route from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We had booked a tour of Hearst Castle which is very close to Cambria. The little town is split into east and west village and the bluebird is at the eastern end. We stayed in October and the town was decorated with scarecrows -... More

Nice motel downtown Cambria CA. Very close to a couple of hiking trails that take you very nice views of the ocean. Our room overlooked a very nice garden and had a fireplace, very romantic. No breakfast included but coffee and cake instead

Travelling from SF to LA, this is about half way. We found the concierge friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable. Probably best sumarised as economical, no fridge in our room so if we were staying longer may have been an issue however if you are over nighting then there is no problem with this place. Plenty of restaurants down... More

Passing through from San Francisco to Las Vegas we decided to stop over for one night! however the motel and the surrounding are was so enchanting, especially with all the scarecrows dotted all over the place, we actually stopped for two nights. We have never stayed at a motel before with such a lovely reception office/lounge and the coffee and... More

I have driven across country four times, and this is the best motel I've stayed in. We are both handicapped but without wheelchairs, and we have a handicapped room, which is absolutely perfect. We've been driving from San Francisco to L.A. and have had four rooms so far, one not handicapped. Bluebird Inn has a separate bath from where the... More
