The Bluebird Motel is conveniently located, within walking distance of several stores and a super market; three restaurants are within a five-minute drive; and the motel is reasonably priced. The clean room has a fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker, comfy beds with ample covers, comfy pillows, a free bottle of water per guest, and many channels on DirecTV. We... More

Enjoyed the Bluebird. The staff is friendly and rooms are well appointed. With free WiFi and direct TV it is as close to home as possible. Close to UMM and if you need a quick bite or coffee Tom's Mini mart is next store.Thanks for a great stay.

Not much to say, this place was decent but not exceptional. Everything was scrupulously clean and they had the standard amenities (free wifi, fridge and microwave, coffee maker with coffee and tea, DirecTV, free water).

Right on Route 1, conveniently next to a gas station, grocery store and dollar store, this motel is really nice. Clean, comfey bed, microwave and complimentary water in fridge. I stayed in the back and didn't hear any road traffic. Yes, this is a good place to stay. No complaints.

Looks a little sketchy as its an old style roadside motel. However, that said, the room was large, clean and had relatively new furnishings. Room was under $100 and provided easy access to Machias. Short ride to restaurants, fast food and Walmart. Just a few miles from the University.

I have been traveling around Maine since the end of July and have stayed at numerous hotels/motels. Thus far, the Bluebird Motel is the best place I have stayed at for your money. Bob, the owner, is in the process of renovating the rooms and has done an "excellent job". (There are a few rooms that are not yet renovated...so... More

On a trip visiting relatives. Stopped here in Machias Maine to spend two nights, cook lobster in my room and see the area. Small room but everything I could have wanted. I brought my own single burner and lobster pot and found fresh lobsters and steamer clams real close by. Very well priced.

Spent one night here while visiting the area. The staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and adequate with a microwave and fridge and two double beds. We would definitely recommend the Bluebird Motel as a nice place to stay but with few frills and amenities.

Thank Lynne R
