I think it’s all been said in previous reviews. Clean. Classic. Friendly. Hot water for a relaxing shower. The atmosphere created is one that encourages guests to visit with one another. Chairs are outside every room where you can enjoy a conversation or just relax....More
I can only add my 2-cents that this is a great and historic place to stay. Very clean, with wonderfully friendly and helpful owners. They have done a great job of restoring and old place, but it has what is necessary for a modern hotel...great...More

Thank you! So glad you enjoyed your stay here.
This was one of the highlights of our New Mexico road trip. Such a cool property- it has been maintained and ran well over the years. The family that runs the place were so sweet and told us if we needed anything to literally knock...More
This was well worth the stop. Now I really felt like I was back in the day. Iconic sight for Route 66 since 1939 so steeped in history. It looks just like it does in the pictures. I had not realised though that each room...More

I count myself privileged to have stayed at The Blue Swallow two weeks ago, and I can honestly say that this gem of a hotel has to be the best-kept secret in all of New Mexico! This was my first time passing through the State...More
Try something different tonight! Travel just a short distance away from the I-40 off-ramp to experience the best of the past, with old-fashioned hospitality that is all too rare these days. The Blue Swallow Motel is a classic Motor Court established in 1939 on historic Route 66, and one of few anywhere still operating in its original configuration. Rooms are clean and comfortable, but retain an authentic feel from the heyday of route 66 travel. Premium creature comforts including ultra-comfortable mattresses, spa-like towels, and Desert Breeze organic shampoo, soap, and lotion. Many of the rooms include a garage to make you feel more at home while you are on the road, and these are perfect for parking your motorcycle or classic car for the night. All rooms are non-smoking. One of the best neon displays on Route 66! Come spend a memorable night and experience the home-style hospitality of a bygone era at the Blue Swallow Motel!
