The service was friendly and efficient, and the breakfast was nice (including a very tasty cake). The room was very comfortable - good mattress and key amenities (fridge and microwave). The inn is well located - only a couple minutes walk to the restaurants and shops. I highly recommend eating at Robin's and try the Honig Sauvignon Blanc. Parking was... More

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We stayed in one of the upgraded king bed rooms. The place looks like a quaint mom and pop motel but in our room it had the convenience of a modern hotel. Pros: back porch overlooking a beautiful landscaped and natural area comfortable bed microwave and fridge fireplace location within walking of old... More

This extremely well maintained motel preserves many of its mid-century motor-inn qualities while sensbily updating the bathrooms. I was extremely comfortable and found my room spacious and inviting. The common room with the fireplace is very nice, too, and the hotel grounds are right next to a trail into the Fiscalini Preserve. One drawback: rooms with shared doors share a... More

We decided to stay at the Bluebird Inn instead of the costly "Moon Stone" beach hotels. We were able to "upgrade" our room to one of the garden rooms that have a balcony. I'm glad we did. It was so peaceful sitting out on the spacious balcony in the sunny afternoon. The Bluebird is so convenient with shopping and eateries... More

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
