Route 66Travel along Route 66 through Tucumcari and you'll come across the Blue Swallow Motel. The Blue Swallow is one of the roadside motel treasures that you read about in books and see in videos. Originally owned and operated by Lillian Redman, the Blue Swallow has been carefully restored by owners Dale & Hilda Bakke. This is a must stop.


UPDATE 07/10 : The Bakkes are no longer owners of the motel and the paint scheme has been changed to different shades of blue. 07-10
