“Cheap, Clean, Good and Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2006

Like the above reviewer we were looking for a place to stay whilst visiting the Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump.

The Motel was excellent. The site is right next to the road - which is easy to find but could be noisy - but there seemed to be enough soundproofing to mean that a good night's sleep was no problem. Their stated aim is to "Sell Sleep - Not Parties"!

Each room has a theme - we stayed in the Gene Awtrey (sp?) room. A good twenty minute's entertainment was has reading the little collection of memorabilia about this forties/fifties western singing star - great fun.

The room was very inexpensive (to a Brit at the fantastic exchange rate) at about £40 and was in good condition in every respect.

They don't do food - but the "Casa Roma!" restaurant is a five minute walk away and did us a decent steak and prawns dinner...so you can leave the car at the Inn and enjoy a beer with supper.

If you need motel style accomodation to get a night's sleep whilst travelling in the area you could do a great deal worse than the Bluebird Inn. Recommended.

We stayed in the Bluebird Motel as we were looking for somewhere as a base to visit Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump (excellent site, well worth a visit). The motel room was clean and comfortable, with a large bathroom and small kitchenette. The beds were very welcome after our flight - and an excellent night's sleep was had by all. We'd certainly stay here again if in the area.
