We have enjoyed the Bluebird Inn for years. But unfortunately it has changed hands. Rock music in the lobby. Cigarette smoke throughout the grounds. Noisy. Messy and bedraggled. Unappetizing food. Much too expensive for the poor ambience. Very disappointing. We will not return.

But the odd noise from the heater just about drove me crazy through the night. I believe this is something that can easily be fixed and I certainly brought it to the attention of the staff. There were a few other issues probably relating to a recent reno not having been really completed (e.g. no rod in closet). On the... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay along Route 1. This Motel offers a friendly reception and clean and simple rooms that are tucked away from the main road. The bed was very comfortable for a good nights sleep.

This is one of the cleanest motels we have stayed in. Staff when we checked in was very nice. When we left, they barely acknowledged us. Only heat is a wall heater and after it turns off it pops for quite a while - made it hard to sleep for the kids. Parking is right outside your door, so very... More

Was a little apprehensive about staying here from the reviews I had read. Sooo happy I did not go by the reviews I read. The people in the office were soo nice and very accommodating. The rooms were very clean and cozy. The website does not list all the room aminities. They do have hair dryers, iron n board. The... More

Family of 4 visiting from the UK as part of a road trip. We checked in to the Bluebird late on the 21st and just loved the place!.. The village and hotel were lit beautifully for Christmas and entering the foyer to a roaring open fire and baked cookies was just heaven. Rooms are a good size for 4 people,... More

The room was clean and comfortable with a fireplace and sliding door out to a patio with chairs. We stayed for one night to go to the Christmas Market and Lights our daughter and... More

This is a great traditional motel. We stayed in one of the suites which was clean, modern and very spacious with a small kitchen and dining table. No wi-fi in the rooms but we were only there one night. Friendly staff, park-like view out the back and an easy walk to many restaurants. Had an excellent dinner at The Sow's... More

This Motel ticked all the boxes for us, within our price range. Friendly staff, nice to have tea and coffee on offer at reception. The room was more than big enough, clean, good shower. Really handy for Hearst Castle and the elephant seal viewing area. Loved that there was plenty of restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the... More
