My husband and I stayed here during the Bay of Fundy Marathon weekend. The accommodations were great. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our room had a fridge, coffee maker, and a microwave which was a real treat. There was also free wifi and Direct TV. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. There are a number... More

I stayed here with my mom over the weekend. I was running the Bay of Fundy marathon and this motel was a great find. The room was very clean. The furniture was new and it was great to have a fridge as well. The wifi worked fine and we were pleasantly surprised that there were hundreds of channels on the... More

I have stayed here many times over the past 20 years and it is just fine. Not fancy but solid. Very pleasant staff, good beds, clean, convenient location, reasonably priced. We will be back when we travel to Machias next year. Wifi and TV work too!

We were in Maine during the winter months when most hotels/motels are closed for the season. Glad they were open. We were pleasantly surprised with our stay. WONDERFUL bed, refrigerator, and rather large selection of in-room coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. Room did NOT smell musty or have stale cigarette odor like you get in most motels. Friendly and helpful... More

I stay at the Bluebird on a weekly basis and their new beds are fantastic. The rooms also have new furniture and I was comfortable drinking my morning coffee at the new table. I slept so well that I did not want to get up to the alarm. I always get great service and accommodate impromptu stays. The staff are... More

Because of a business, I happened to find this motel online. It was close to where I would be temporarily working. No its not a resort, but it is a clean comfortable place to stay with basic amenities. The staff here are wonderful. The first time ( yes this is my second time here), the young lady in the reception... More

From the very kind staff to the amenities provided, everything was just what we needed. Okay, the mattress wasn't like my own, but it might be just like yours at home. The Bluebird is clean, pleasant and well appointed. The queen bedded rooms are behind the main building and so slightly quieter, but even the rooms at the front are... More

I first stayed at the Bluebird Motel about 40 years ago. It is still a great place to stay in Machias with comfortable, clean rooms; good beds, and great hosts. It has been updated and has many conveniences but it still a family-run "Mom and Pop" motel with good prices.
