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.
