We stopped at the Bluebird Inn on route to San Francisco. The staff were friendly and helpful. When our request for a foldaway bed was not on their system (having requested one when we booked through a third party website - not the Inn's fault), they managed to squeeze one in the room we were given. The room was ok,... More

We arrived at the hotel at 1 am (after the reception closing hour) but they helped us even it was too late. We could have rest well. Cambria is a small and cute town and this hotel is really represent the same qualities. There is only one thing negative about the hotel, that's the breakfast. It was very disappointing.

This is a simple older hotel within walking distance of several great restaurants. Room 32, on the second floor, was comfortable enough for a night. Newly painted with a nicely renovated bathroom but the carpet and bed spread had seen better days. A refrigerator in the room makes it convenient to refreeze ice blocks for cooler toting travelers. The walls... More

We stayed here because we r on our way to LA from SF and it is near san simeon. The service is friendly and good but the place is very average. The rooms are fine but not special. It is conveniently located on highway 1. The heater was not working even though it is summer but it was cold in... More

Glad I was able to find a room at the last minute! The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, friendly staff, excellent location, walking to distance to nice restaurants, bars and shopping. Quiet and peaceful the only thing we heard were the birds chirping in the garden. My husband and I both agreed we would be back. Although... More

We recently had a one night stay at the Bluebird Inn. It was OK, but nothing special. The hotel is clean and has a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Bathrooms look like they have been recently done over. However, this motel is old and the rooms are very small. The beds were not very comfortable. Breakfast is a basic... More

OMG. I don't think I've ever been in a hotel with walls this thin. From the hard-of-hearing elderly couple below playing their TV at jet engine levels, to the dog barking in the next room, no sleep, no relaxing getaway. Extremely disappointed. I know hotels are always prone to getting noisy guests. There are no phones in the room to... More

Basically, you get what you pay for. There wasn't anything special about staying here but I also don't have anything negative to say either. The room that we were staying in was tiny but clean, staff was friendly, and it's close restaurants in town, Hearst Castle, Elephant Seal Beach, and Moonstone Beach.

We were looking for a 3-day getaway on the coast, somewhere we hadn't stayed before, with no great agenda. We found the Bluebird Inn online and requested a garden room (care of another Tripadvisor review). On arrival, we drove into a standard parking area, entered our clean and good-sized room, dropped our bags, and opened the sliding glass door into... More

I little inn, some what in the middle of two paths of the town. Many antique shops, little stores, jewelry shops and places to eat. If facing the Bluebird inn, to the left are shops and restaurants, and to the right across the bridge closer to the ocean is another part of the town. The people are sweet as can... More
