Our stay was incredibly enjoyable, and one we won't soon forget. In a week on the road, we spent 5 nights in chain motels, and 1 night at the Blue Swallow. All the other hotels blend together, we turned the wrong way off the elevator a couple times... Our night at the Blue Swallow was the only night that stood out. I will stay there whenever I am in the area! The room was very clean, and period authentic. There are murals painted in all of the garages, we had room #2, which had some of the characters from the Pixar movie "Cars". They have free WiFi. A great hotel, and especially beautiful at night when all of the neon is going!
