The motel is a gem! The beautiful neon sign is what it is known for but the rooms are great too. Yes, they are small and yes, they are not the most updated but they are cute, clean, and a snapshot of by gone days. Having a garage next to your room is also a nice feature of the old... More

If you stop for the night do not miss a stay at the Blue Swallow Motel. This hotel is the embodiment of Route 66 neon glitz. The owners have meticulously restored the hotel to its original look. All rooms are comfortable, the suite is the best value...if you can reserve it. The hotel is full most every night; reservations a... More

Would totally recommend this motel on your Route 66 journey. We were warmly greeted by Nancy and given the key to room 1. Absolutely awesome! Perfect view of the neon sign from our room. The room was great with that nostalgic feel. A must stop!

Loved staying at the Blue Swallow Motel. This was the first place we stayed on our way to Arizona and I am glad we chose the Blue Swallow Motel. When we arrived even before they requested payment, we were first shown our room, told about the motel and literature that was in the room. We were then checked in for... More

We stopped at the Blue Swallow as part of a motorcycle trip. The accommodations were great, Cameron and Jessica were very friendly and welcoming. The fire pit and the camaraderie of the other travelers was great. Definitely will stay here again.

Loved this motel. I was on a motorcycle trip to the southwest and decided to take Route 66 home. The Blue Swallow was a must stop for me and I wasn't disappointed. The room was clean and very comfortable. I enjoyed being able to sit outdoors and chat with my neighbors. The owner's are very friendly and pay attention to... More

Its very easy to book with them but I recommend you do it well in advance.It takes you back in time to the good old days of RT 66 . I liked the personal parking garage but most of all the table and chairs outside the door way.. people sat outside and visited telling stories of their trip and experiences... More

The Blue Swallow is every bit as charming as the photos show. It is truly a step back in time. there are other travelers there from all over the world. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. If you're lucky, the weather will be nice and you can sit outside your room in their vintage chairs and have fun... More
