This is an old-fashioned family-run business. The lobby is not open 24 hours, but it is a spacious place for folks to read by the fireplace, play the piano, etc. The owners have some interesting touches such as a cuckoo clock and an antique music box in the lobby. In the morning, they provide coffee and sweet bread to get...

This was stop 3 in our journey from San Francisco to LA. We got a room overlooking the car park. It was in need of a revamp. The motel has a garden which we unfortunately couldn't take advantage of due to the cold weather- California can be very cold in the evening even in late June. The breakfast consisted of...

We've stayed here a number of times before and always find it clean, comfortable and a very good value for this part of the California central coast. Rooms/motel are old 1950s style and basic but all you'd really need as an operating base to many local sights like Hearst Castle, Highway 1 scenic drive, Morro Bay, antique stores, etc. Rooms...

The innkeepers are super nice and helpful, you really get a family feel here. The rooms are old-fashioned and clean and the gardens and creek behind the motel are very pretty with lots of flowers. And it's next door to the Black Cat (best restaurant in town) and within easy walking distance of pretty much everything else in town. You...

This was a charming 1950s style motel in the beautiful town of Cambria. We were greeted warmly when we stopped to see if there was a vacancy, and were told there would be pound cake and coffee in the lobby in the morning. The room was like the ones we stayed in when I was a child, but it was...

A little walkway behind our trip led to a stream where you could sit down and have a comfortable relaxing place to read a book. Motel Room was clean and had a fireplace so our stay was just the relaxing weekend I was looking for.

We stayed for one night whilst passing through Cambria on the way to San Fransisco - the Bluebird is a fabulous motel! The owners are very friendly and welcoming and the motel has a lovely ambience about it. The gardens at the back are beautiful - our budget didn't stretch to one of the garden view rooms (which incidentally were...

This motel has nice rooms and suites with microwaves and refrigerators. Many of the rooms look out over a gorgeous garden that backs onto a stream. Balconies open out onto the garden. Nice fireplace in the suite. Would give this a Excellent, except that the sofabed in the living area is only suitable for very small children. The king bed...
