Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Blue Swallow Motel is a treasure on Route 66. Construction began in 1939, and the motel first opened for business in 1942, after a delay because of the outbreak of World War II. The motel is a typical motor court of the era, built with attached garages next to each room. We feature a variety of sleeping configurations, including single queen beds, two double beds, and a two room suite with beds for up to five people.

Nights under the famous neon lights have been described as “”magical””, and an experience that is not to be missed. Go to our website and book a trip on Historic Route 66, with an overnight stop at the Blue Swallow Motel!

    Stayed at the Blue Swallow on a trip that included the middle chunk of Route 66. The experience was total nostalgia including the room keys, bedspreads, telephones, a vintage National Geographic magazine in the room and of course that awesome neon. Kevin and Nancy are wonderful people and it’s great to see them continuing to restore this historic property. If I lived in the area I’d be there helping when I could.
