On my trip on Old Route 66 I stopped for the night at Blue Swallow Motel. What a great place to rest my head. The owners were super friendly and the rooms was cozy. I slept great!
The neon sign at night transported me back in time and I loved all the wonderful painted murals.
If you're traveling on Rt 66 (or just thru NM) the Blue Swallow Motel is a wonderful, clean, friendly and comfortable place to rest.
