The Blue Bird has slowly become a part of our family. My grandma lived at an assisted living facility on SE Hawthorne. Finding accommodation nearby for visiting family members has been a challenge, particularly as they crack down on airbnb in the city. The Blue Bird is an excellent choice for a budget minded traveler. I stayed in both the... More

We've stayed here when in Portland since about 2006, and have few complaints about the guesthouse itself. It's simple, we don't have to make nice with owners and breakfast folks, which is how we like it. However, this summer Portland has seen fit to remove numerous parking spaces on Division, making it nearly impossible to park anywhere near the guesthouse.... More

I stayed at his guesthouse with a friend. The room and the bath were very clean and the bed comfortable. The steps to our room on the 2nd floor were very steep which would present a problem for some older or disabled people. The breakfast options were limited and there is no where near to buy breakfast. However I mentioned... More

Run down and dirty, bathrooms and bedding and towels were clean but kitchen counters were sticky greasy, furniture was worn out and dirty and needed to be redone. The sister b&b is a much better place and would recommended it over Bluebird any day.

I guess is was quaint but I was not impressed. Upon arrival a 1/2 hour early there was only a cleaning lady in the kitchen, who when spoken to said Hi - that is it. 45 minutes later we went back to her and said " we were wanting to check in". She then said oh you can go to... More

I stayed at the Bluebird Guesthouse for two nights, one night in the Garcia Room and one night in the Beverly Cleary room. I had to change rooms because it was a last-minute booking, but the change was painless - all I had to do was leave my suitcase in the room when I left the first morning and when... More

My girlfriend and I visited my sister in Portland for a week, so my folks treated us to the "best room in the house" -- the Beverly Cleary room -- at the Bluebird Guesthouse in Portland's Hawthorne district. Our room was upstairs, directly above the house's front entrance, and it had its own bathroom (which is a MUST, in my... More

We enjoyed our six-night stay and the charming location. Very comfy linens, mattress, pillows, blankets and bath robes! Enjoyed the make-your-own-breakfast and make-your-own-conversation feature, as I usually loathe the breakfast chat at most b&b's! One tip to the owners would be to include some more info for guests on your website about how to get around the neighborhood on foot/by... More

Me and my best friend just got off a 21 hour Amtrak trip from Salinas to Portland, neither of us had much sleep. Got a cab ride to the house. Beautiful old 1900's home that has the charm and warmth you will not find in any newer home. we rented two separate bedrooms. There were a couple of guys sitting... More

Although I am a local, at times I want to stay in a neighborhood where I'm attending a dining event. Bluebird Guesthouse is only a block from the top-rated Ava Gene's, and close-by to Block+Tackle/Roe, Pok Pok and more. I made a same-day reservation when it looked like we were in for a rare snowstorm and I wanted to make... More
