Blue Swallow Motel: This is just another fun Route 66 stop – a motel that began in the 40’s! Lots of interesting history, and some friendly owners who are happy to tell you about it. You can’t miss the neon sign out front!
Location: 815 E Rte 66 Blvd, Tucumcari, NM 88401
Our Overall Rating: 5/5
I usually dread having to find a hotel late at night while in the middle of an unfamiliar state but this place made the stop so fun! When we looked up this place we were only about an hour away and were getting tired. We called ahead and they agreed to hold a room for us until we arrived. The owners are very friendly, knowledgable, and funny. They love the share about the history of the hotel and how it’s been maintained. They also make fresh coffee in the lobby and it was actually delicious! Overall, a great stop on your route 66 road trip, even just to see the stunning neon signs and vintage car displayed out front!
Cleanliness Rating: 5/5
Despite this place being incredibly old, they do a fantastic job with cleaning. It was perfect!
Favorite Room: We just got a basic room and it was cute and cozy!
