While I last stayed at the the Blue Swallow in 2007 under the previous owner, I can guarantee everybody that there is no better place to stop and stay for the night anywhere on Route 66. The new owners have done even more restoration and their reputation is stellar. There may be equals in how a customer is treated such as at the Grand Motel in Williams, Arizona but no place will give you a better overall feel for the Mother Road than the Blue Swallow.

NOTE: Since the time mokastet originally posted this photograph, he went back and edited it to be more square. Because I prefer the wider shot so much more, I have used the original copy that I downloaded upon discovering this picture in 2012. Especially as KoHoSo.us is a completely non-commercial site and my retro/vintage/Americana posts are intended to encourage my visitors to go see more of the work of the people I feature here, I hope mokastet will forgive me for liking this wider version better and hosting it here.
