My daughter and I were on our way from Texas to California and made our first overnight stop at the Blue Swallow. We were glad we did and loved the place. The owners have done such a nice job in turning this motel into a real gem. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were clean. Be sure to make a... More

We always stay at the Blue Swallow when traveling Route 66. If you don't, you are missing out on what traveling the "Mother Road" is all about..........Kevin and Nancy go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. The rooms are always clean and I make sure it works out that we stop here no matter... More

Wonderful, lovingly restored classic motel on the Mother Road. Jessica and Cameron (and Obie the dog) are welcoming hosts who really seem to enjoy taking care of their many guests from around the world. We stayed in the Lillian Redman Suite (a tribute to the long time owner of the motel) and found it nicely appointed with period furniture mixed... More

This is a classic motel on Route 66. It is a motel that really shows its credentials, not flashy, not overly dramatic or romantic - good service and a good standard. The welcome from the owners is excellent and they really make you feel that nothing is too much trouble. Travelling Route 66 in a classic 1967s Camaro - what... More

It was a COOL night including the weather and the experience of the lights! We've made this trip several years on the same weekend, but this time we arrived and it was in the low 60's. We had driven through 8 hours of bone chilling cold and rain to get there. I learned that the neon needs to be dry... More

The Blue Swallow is a piece of History and the owners Kevin and Nancy are the best and now they have added their Son and his wife, so it really is a family affair. The motel has been renovated, but they have kept the charm and décor to give you an experience in time. There is no better neon signage... More

I could not have enjoyed my stay at the Blue Swallow any more! The 2nd night of a 2 week Rte 66 and beyond road trip, and it spoiled me for all subsequent stops. First, of course, there is the history of this iconic roadside motel. It's preserved perfectly but not preciously. The neon is gorgeous; the antique autos lend... More

We had been looking forward to our stay at the Blue Swallow since leaving Chicago to begin our Route 66 adventure, and it did not disappoint. Kevin and Nancy (and Bessie!) have done a great job not only preserving this slice of history but creating a sense of community amongst the guests - eating s'mores by the fire while swapping... More

I was so excited to stay at the Blue Swalllow after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and visiting the Blue Swallow website. It did not disappoint! Co-owner Nancy and Bessie welcomed us warmly. After a 13-hour drive, it means so much to stop somewhere you've never been and feel at home. Comfort, charm, history and friendliness are some of the... More

A terrific couple runs this place with love. What a fun place to stay. We met some other folks there too, all fellow travelers, like Bob, who let my 3 kids sit behind the wheel of his mint 1959 Vette. The hotel was so nicely maintained and close to a few great restaurants. Great for the kids. We are a... More
