If you want a charming, cozy room to call your own after a long trip - look no further! I drove over 800 miles on the first day of my trip and was very pleased with the accommodations provided by the Blue Swallow Motel. Nancy greeted me and my two daughters when we arrived, showing us room 15. Nancy recommended a great local restaurant for dinner and then we settled in for the night. My biggest reservation with any place that is not my own is the mattress. The Blue Swallow did NOT disappoint.
My daughters mentioned that they felt like they were in a family friend's house instead of a hotel and loved all the quirky (to them since they are teenagers) decor! After I reminded them what Nancy had said about when the room was built, they understood that it all related.
We also stayed on our return trip and couldn't wait to rest our heads in the familiar surroundings, especially since we got the same room. Although, this time, I got to meet Kevin since Nancy had lost her voice.
The Blue Swallow Motel is definitely a stop we will make whenever in the area. You can't beat the price and at home feel!
