An older (in a good way) motor court with more exterior charm than the Best Western / Motel 6 competition. Rates are reasonable for the area, particularly when booked in advance through a comparative site. Located in downtown Cambria within an easy walk of a variety of restaurants and shops. Parking is ample. The room (in our case a king)...

A very lovely place! Very clean and quiet within walking distance of other shops and cafes on Main Street. A great place to stay if visiting Hearst Castle. There is a lovely garden at the back of the property. The lobby has a comfy fireplace, soft music and a peaceful place to enjoy your morning coffee and muffins.

We were very pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed this BIG 2-bed room at the back of the complex. You enter directly from the parking in front of the room but the deck out the back is raised above the bird friendly back garden including several feeders attracting many birds and some butterflies. We were here for 3-4 days of...

Room was big and clean. Could have used better/more pillows. More outlets please. Only had second floor rooms, so had to schlepp the cases up a flight of stairs. Good location. CHeck in staff were very helpful in letting us know that highway 1 was closed a few miles north of San Simeon and we would have to detour south,...

A planned trip was halted as rains caused land slides and road closures. We spent the night here, a quaint place with a lovely inviting open fire and friendly staff. The rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. The breakfast was also basic, but absolutely acceptable. I feel I need to revisit this place in better weather as it is...

We had a nice stay at the Bluebird Inn! The walls were very thin, to the point we could hear the person next to us snoring but the room was clean, bed was comfortable enough, staff was friendly and breakfast was great!

Loved my stay at The Bluebird Inn. The staff was.so friendly and.so sweet to each and.every guest. The main lobby with fireplace and quiet music was.very restful and peaceful, and an opportunity to meet travelers from all over. They serve a continental breakfast to start your day and it's more than ample. It's located so close.to.town so within walking distance...

We stayed at the bluebird in after checking out it's TripIt visor ratings last year, and had a wonderful stay. This year, we decided to do the same and we're not disappointed. We upgraded to a deluxe king, which is worth the extra dollars – it has a little fireplace and a sliding door with a patio. Vincent at the...

I just spent an enjoyable weekend at the Bluebird Inn. I selected it because I like staying in the village, rather than out by the beach. Most of the reviews were very positive and I have to agree. The owners definitely have invested in upgrading their rooms and at the same time it has an old comfortable feeling in the...

The 'inn' is really a motel, though it is very nice and fairly priced. Rooms are large with all the amenities one comes to expect. Cambria is a small town. There are lots of shops and restaurants within an easy walk of the inn. Front desk staff are friendly and helpful.
