A delightful treat along Route 66, the Blue Swallow Motel is a throwback to earlier, simpler times. The restored rooms harken back to the golden days of Route 66, and the owners are warm and friendly, making you feel like guests in their home. Rooms are clean and neat, and attractively decorated --- each room with a theme. And the rooms have small garages, perfect for motorcycles, or small cars.
It may not be for everyone, though: if your tastes run to fancy surroundings and roomy bathrooms, you may find the rooms a bit cramped. But anyone with a sense of history, or an appreciation for the charm that nostaligia can bring will find the stay a wonderful treat.
