Rooms were clean, staff super friendly and helpful. Accomadating for our dog. Will definitely stay here again. Worth the stay and reasonable!!! The showers were great. The area is right on Route 1 but rooms were surprisingly quiet and did not hear the traffic at all!!!!

A very pleasant place to stay. The room was clean and neat. The beds are so comfortable. The tv and WiFi are easy to use and navigate. TV was large flat screen and plenty of little amenities. The staff was friendly and very helpful with where to eat and how to get around Machias.

We booked the reservation for one night at the bluebird,they were very nice and helpful via phone to all our questions. We only needed the night to stay after our long drive as we were planning to leave at daybreak to open up our summer Cottage nearby and didn't want to arrive there in the dark as it is deep... More

We stay here at least once every year. The water pressure is great, the room is always comfortable and well-appointed, and the location is great. It's easy access to Campobello and Eastport, to Downeast Maine, and to Ellsworth & Bar Harbor

We stayed here in September 2015. We were driving from Acadia Park on our way to Baxter State. Very clean nice hotel. Room was very quiet. Front desk was very nice and helpful. We did not have a lot of people in Maine that were helpful with information but his motel was very helpful.

This is a small rural motel, but the rooms have all been re done. They are modern, clean and upmost very quiet. This is the second time I have stayed there this year and if I have to go to the Machias area again I will most likely stay at the Bluebird.

Would you like a no nonsense, clean, reasonable place to spend a night or two while exploring Down East? For us motels are an unfortunate expense but an integral part of travel. We've stayed here several times, usually for a single night while exploring the most northerly coast of Maine. It is a little more than half way north on... More

Stayed here in October for two nights...this is quite the nice little motel. It is open all year long. Located right on Route One...close to local shops, restaurants (Helen's and thr Bluebird Ranch as well as a pretty good take out place across the street), close to the ocean (Rogues Bluff StatePark)...small harbors, unique beaches, gorgeous landscapes, and Campobello Island....

Have stayed here several times. As more people find the charm of Washington County (real Downeast, not Bar Harbor "Downeast"), the price has gone up a little. Still very affordable but if you charge more, you really should give more. That said, the rooms are old but scrubbed so clean and and are comfortable. Comfy beds. Also good little takeaway... More
