If you're getting your kicks on Rte 66, then you've got to stay here for a least one night. Check out their website and you'll quickly see why you should.... What it does't show is the warm welcome you'll get from Bessie the Golden Retriever...More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we found this little slice of heaven to stay at! We would highly recommend staying here just for the ambiance. Add to it the comfortable bed and retro (think subway tiles) but really awesome shower, and we will come back again!

Have stayed here twice through the years, and always fantastic. Small place, so service is always excellent. Rooms are always spotless, garage for car a nice plus. Pass up the chain motels, and stay here instead. You won't regret it a bit.

Having stayed in Tucumcari before was not aware of The Blue Swallow, sure glad we found it. Nancy & Kevin are tops in congeniality and customer service, the motel brought back many memories of long ago travels on rte 66. We can not say enough...More

The Blue Swallow Motel on Rte 66 in Tucumcari, NM is like a trip back in time. Cove ceilings, neon lighting, and even a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain to enjoy. THh beds are SO comfortable and the hosts so hospitable! It was a great night's stay.

The PowWow Restaurant is probably a mile away from the Blue Swallow. A straight line hike, and maybe more than you want to do, but the food is quite good.

Can't remember, but I know the price range was $69-129. I think we paid less than $100. Well worth it-too cute.
