The Bluebird is right in the middle of Cambria proper. The hotels on the ocean are pricier with better views, but this motel is generally a pretty good deal at about half the price of the ocean hotels. If you are looking to walk around Cambria and shop/dine without having to drive a car, this is well situated. It is... More

Love this place! Friendly attentive staff, quaint rooms, gardens invite all kinds of song birds. Right in the center of town so convenient to everything. Simplicity at it's finest. The only place we stay

Pleasant, quiet and somewhat picturesque, this motel is reminiscent of the good motels that populated the country in the 50's & 60's yet has been updated to today's world. Beds and pillows are comfortable. The garden rooms have individual decks and a fireplace, refrigerator and a coffee maker, flat screen TV, etc.. Nicely laid out. Staff was friendly and helpful....

We stayed here for one night in September. This was our next stop south after visiting Monterey. We used it as a base for visiting Hearst Castle. This is a pleasant, quiet, and clean motel. To us it was just what you would expect from a traditional motel and not like one of the big chains. It was close to... More

This was our first stay at the Bluebird Motel and it was a real treat. The facility itself is in a beautiful wooded / garden setting very near the center of Cambria. The grounds and the structures are pristinely maintained and are very attractive inside and out. Every staff member we interacted with were friendly, helpful and humorous. The main... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. It is a great location in east Cambria between two great restaurants (Indigo Moon and Black Cat Bistro) and walking distance to nearby shops, restaurants and wine bars. The staff is friendly and helpful, but the room was small and in need of updating. Okay, I kind of expected that from the pics,... More

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
