This is a great stop if you are driving down Route 1 to see the Pacific Coast. we did the San Francisco, Monterrey down to LA drive in late March, and decided to stop in Cambria overnight. We got into Cambria around 7.30pm and checked out a couple of other hotels before stumbling into BlueBird Inn. Walked in and asked...

This motel is an old-timer. it gets by on value. It's clean and neat but shows it's age. It's a good value, it's centrally located to walk to most restaurants in the main part of town. I think I would check out some others in the same area next time.

We stayed at the Bluebird Inn in Cambria when we sent to view the elephant seals. Our friend was visiting from PA and we took her with us. We had never been to Cambria before and asked someone, a former travel agent, for a referral. She sugested the Bluebird, which is located in the downtown area-- easy walking to shops,...

We were on a driving holiday & we arrived here as a drop in. The receptionist was lovely & reception area extremely welcoming. You can sit here in front of the fire in the evenings if you choose. Standard motel rooms which are a little dated but clean. Small town so you can walk to everything. Would stay again.

This is a slightly upscale roadside motel. The backyard is very beautiful. I would recommend it but the price stings, especially since the location is away from the ocean and on the main strip. ,..........................

12 of my family stayed here in 4 different rooms between Christmas and New Year's. Everyone we encountered in reception was very friendly and helpful. Including in correcting our reservation - three rooms were checking out a day earlier than they planned - no problem. We liked the lobby with fireplace, piano, newspapers and magazines and complimentary coffee, tea and...

The curb appeal of the Bluebird Motel is great. Very inviting and looks clean. But the interior is another story. The lobby itself was drab, very dark and looked as though a cloud of dust would puff up if you were to sit down. The old lady behind the counter was rude. Why work in customer service if you're going...

We really enjoyed our stay here, we opted for one of the small suites rather than just a room as the price was pretty good, after negotiation. Room was well appointed and very clean. There was a lovely small garden and walk right outside our back door. Staff were all very helpful and friendly.
