My husband and I stayed at the Blue Swallow Motel and we absolutely loved it. This is a real step back in time. The rooms are small but so cozy. The beds and bedding are very comfortable and the room was very clean. This motel is unique and has a personality all of its own. I enjoyed every minute we were there. If you want a large room that has all the latest amenities, You should go to one of the chain hotels in the area. This is the place to stay if you want a feeling of times gone by. Try it and you will not be disappointed.
