Recently returned from a trip to Maine with a friend who organized all of our lodging accommodations. When we pulled up to the Bluebird Motel, I admit my immediate reaction was concern, as I usually opt for a hotel chain. While my friend went in the office to check us in, I quickly went on my phone to check out some reviews. As I found many others have also stated, this motel was immaculately clean. It was very clear to me that the owners and staff prioritize and take pride in the cleanliness of their rooms. The rooms were spacious and had everything we needed. The price per night was more than reasonable and all the staff we came in contact with were extremely friendly. If you’re used to the Ritz or the Waldorf Astoria, this is probably not the place for you. However, if you’re traveling in or around Machias and need a clean reasonably priced place to spend a night or more, the Bluebird Motel is most definitely a decent option.

What a pleasant surprise. I am always hesitant to book budget motels because they are like a box of chocolates. You know, you don’t know what you’ll get. They may have great reviews and you get there and it’s like you have to be kidding, was someone drunk! Surprise, this place is great. Near everything and they have really hot water, clean rooms, beds that are okay and they let you bring your best four legged friend at a very reasonable additional cost. We liked it so much that we booked it again even though we had to readjust our route. I forgot to mention it is really quite and I love that you park right in front of your room. We have some expensive ebikes so that was a plus. The people that work there are super nice and seem happy to answer questions about the area.

My wife and I stayed 1 night, arriving at 2 PM. The nice owner acknowledged our reservation, took the card payment, verified the room was ready, then gave the key and pointed to the drive around back to the rear addition. Here out of sight are many more rooms and I parked at #182, no smoking, spacious and nicely carpeted with 2 queens, dresser with coffee machine, refrigerator with a micro, desk and chair, 2 easy chairs and a fully outfitted bathroom with a tub shower. Room WIFI was good but the hot water came slowly as its boiler was on the other end of the motel. This well managed old style motel has 40 rooms with a convenient Hannaford less than 1/2 mile north. We had a good stay for $92/night.

Our room was very spacious and clean. The bathroom reminded us of one from someone's house. We got good advice from the front desk personnel also. I would recommend this little establishment to anyone traveling in the area.

Spent two nights at the Bluebird on our vacation in October 2020. The rooms were spotless, the beds were comfy and clean, and the water in the shower was hot and plentiful. It's well located to visit many towns along the coast. It's a bit far for Bar Harbor, but can be done. If you stay, be sure to eat at Helen's and make the drive up to Quoddy Point and Lubec Brewing Co.

Spacious room with everything you need. Was very happy with check in and the quality of the room. Room had been nicely renovated recently. Would definitely stay here again. We were in a room in the back and was very quiet until the thunder hit. But that was MaNat speaking. LOL

We were impressed by the cleanliness and updated rooms. Bathroom was especially nice for a small hotel. Beds were comfortable. Not much to look at from the outside in the back building but wifi, TV, fridge & mircrowave made the room great.

This motel is larger than it seemed from the street. The receptionist at check in was very friendly. While this is a basic motel, the room was large and comfortable. The bed was comfortable. There was a good size fridge and a coffee machine. Our room was in the second building behind the first, so it was very quiet. I didn't hear a thing. Very comfortable stay.

A bit dated but extremely clean. For the money, it can’t be beat. The WiFi leaves a lot to be desired. I had to go to the office and have them connect. When I returned to our room the. Inne toon was lost. Admittedly, I was told when a lot of people were here, the WiFi tended to be weak. If the WiFi were available, which it is not. I’d give the rating a 5.
