Small room, but has small flat screen (with Direct TV), mini fridge, microwave. Clean. Single story row motel. Tiny bath. Super people in office. Near lots of great coastal harbors, cutler being the best IMHO.

I have stayed here over 30 days this year (nonconsecutive) and it has been great - the owner and staff are always helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and the rates are very reasonable. I can stay anywhere but always make Bluebird Motel my first choice and you should too.

I stay at the Bluebird Motel weekly for work purposes. This place is great, the rooms are always cleaned, and the staff is always willing to help. Each room comes with a mini-fridge (with 2 bottles of water), microwave, and a coffee maker similar to a Keurig. Coffee pods are also in the room for your convenience. The beds are comfortable, the rooms smell clean and are very quiet.
The only draw backs is there is no breakfast (however Tom's Corner Store is in walking distance) and the cell phone reception isn't the greatest (however more towers are being put up in the general area).
Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at the Bluebird Motel. I enjoy staying here so much, that I've had my employer make the transition to have all the employees stay here when they are in the Machias area.

Room Tip: Just provide the hotel with the number of beds you need, and if you need a smoking or non-smoking ro...

I stay at the Bluebird on a weekly basis as I work a couple days in Machias. From the very beginning I have felt that my comfort has been important to them. They are always making upgrades based on customers suggestions. They also check in to see if the upgrades are good for the customers. The staff make me feel that I am welcome and my stay is important. The rooms are always clean with clean linens and their fridge has bottled water to drink. Tom's Store has a deli/restaurant which makes great food for a reasonable price. The view from other locations around the town are gorgeous and there is nothing more stunning than a sunrise in Washington county. It is a treat to be able to see deer in the fields behind the motel early in the morning. I would stay here even if a new larger motel were built here. I will keep the personal touch.

Room Tip: I tend to choose non-smoking rooms as they smell cleaner.

I have been staying at this motel for several years whenever I travel to Machias. The people are great and the rooms are clean with microwave, fridge, coffee maker and free WiFi. Price varies with the seasons. They are located next to Tom's Gulf Gas Station & Restaurant - you can walk over for an excellent fresh made meal that is reasonably priced - many locals eat here. The motel is located on the "western" side of Machias just a few blocks away from a Rite-Aid, McD's and Hannaford's, and maybe a mile from UMaine Machias. Machias has a very good laundramat with free WiFi on Water Street, several places to eat and 2 5-star restaurants just outside of Machias. And just a short drive to 2 golf courses and Roque Bluffs beach and state park. Machias is the wild blueberry capital of the world - don't miss the summer festival.

Room Tip: They have rooms for smokers, nonsmokers and a few rooms are handicap accessible.

I am remiss in now having written this review earlier. In August and September while bike touring through New England and the Canadian Maritimes we received fantastic hospitality. After biking all day (75 miles) in the pouring rain, we arrived at the Bluebird as drowned water rats. The host and his wife took grand care of us ... even driving us into Machias (it was still pouring) to get some take out dinner for supper. Although I tried to tip them for this service, they wouldn't hear of us. It's great to be on the receiving end of generosity.

The pros: Close to U Maine Machias for visiting families
Very clean
good sized room
flat screen tv and Direct tv
Wi Fi
friendly staff

Cons:
The price. We paid just under $100 a night for a two night stay ($200 total). That was with a AAA rate.
No breakfast.
We had to ask for extra towels but were quickly supplied what we needed
Be careful water is set very hot.
