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.

My wife and I had to spend one night here, because the other two hotels in Machias were booked the last night we were in town. When I was looking at hotels, this was the absolute last place I wanted to stay (compared to Machias Motor Inn and Schopee Farm), based on their webpage and internet pictures. However, when we...

While the Bluebird Motel looks like it's a typical strip motel, it's clean, had fine queen beds, in room fridges, microwaves and WiFi that was a little slow at times but always worked. Staff was super helpful. More than met requirements on a family hiking vacation.

Let’s start with Machias. Whatever brings you out here – the annual Blueberry Festival, your vacation rental, the U. Maine campus, the scenic Route 1 coastal drive, puffins, kayaking, lobstah – you (along with the blueberry farms) REALLY are between a rocky ocean coast and the backwoods. And, generally speaking, there are no hotels in the backwoods, nor in Machias.... More

We stayed one night, August 4, 2014. If you are seeking the Hilton or Ritz in Machias you're looking in the wrong area. On the other hand, the Bluebird is a very convenient and comfortable place to stay. The place is a typical drive-up single story motel where you park your vehicle in front of your room. It is located... More

On a recent photography tour to Down East Maine, our group stayed at the Bluebird Motel. The rooms are small, but otherwise clean and well-appointed. Each room has free wi-fi, a microwave, and a mini refrigerator. Next door is a gas station and mini-mart that has very good food. The front desk staff is friendly and very accommodating. I inadvertently... More

My husband and I stayed here 27 years ago on our honeymoon. When we got the opportunity to visit family in Machias we decided to take our children and make great memories! Grateful we did! Very clean rooms, great service!

Small room, but has small flat screen (with Direct TV), mini fridge, microwave. Clean. Single story row motel. Tiny bath. Super people in office. Near lots of great coastal harbors, cutler being the best IMHO.

I have stayed here over 30 days this year (nonconsecutive) and it has been great - the owner and staff are always helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and the rates are very reasonable. I can stay anywhere but always make Bluebird Motel my first choice and you should too.

I stay at the Bluebird Motel weekly for work purposes. This place is great, the rooms are always cleaned, and the staff is always willing to help. Each room comes with a mini-fridge (with 2 bottles of water), microwave, and a coffee maker similar to a Keurig. Coffee pods are also in the room for your convenience. The beds are... More
