This is not a fancy place. It is old, but kept VERY clean. The beds are comfortable, there is a small fridge in the room, and there is hard wired internet. The people at the front desk are friendly and helpful. Everything you need except the "glitz and glamor" of a newer place. I would stay here again.
A fabulous little motel! One of the very nicest in this price range that I have ever stayed at. Quiet for sound sleeping. Bright rooms. Firm comfortable beds. Screened windows that actually open! Bathroom larger than most -- full swing of door. Clean. . . clean . . . clean. Fridge (w/o freezer), microwave, air conditioner, TV -- all in excellent working order. Helpful respectful office staff. All the basics done well. I would definitely look forward to staying here again!
You get a basic hotel room at a decent price. I travel to Machias often and prefer this hotel over the motor inn. They provide Internet access through hardwired ethernet (vs. wireless), which I like. The front desk people are friendly and helpful.
Likes: clean, not too far from the Puffin Tour (30 min), slightly cheaper than the Motor Inn
Dislikes: old, not that comfortable, pricey in the summer for the quality, air unit difficult to set to desired temperature
We travelled around the country and in Nova Scotia and this is one of the best hotels we stayed in. Clean, comfortable, and quiet at a reasonable price. The air conditionerran very quietly and there is even a fridge in the room. We would definitely stay here again.
The first time we visited the Bluebird Motel in Machias, ME, we were attracted to it becauses it allowed pets. We found it to be clean and affordable. The second time we visited was quite a few years later. We were pleased to find it the same, although they had added another part to the motel, which was in the back area. It is a place that we will keep coming back to whenever we are in the Machias area. We don't know if they still allow pets, but we hope so. Perhaps in selected rooms. Anyway, we recommend this motel highly.
I loved all of it. The location, cleanliness, comfort, friendliness and helpfulness of owners. The air conditioner is the best I have ever encountered. I can't wait to go back.
The price is also great.
The only thing I would like to be improved is the internet connection. It was not functioning but communication systems in Maine in general are very much lacking.
We have stayed at the Bluebird maybe 5 times now. We do not look for fancy stuff; we want a clean, quiet room with a comfortable bed at a fair price. We always need late arrival, and that has never been a problem here. Best of all - the shower actually has water pressure!
