The Blue Swallow has been lovingly restored to its former Route 66 glory by a Michigan couple who took a gamble and put down roots in Tucumcari because they believe the mythology of Rte 66. You've gotta love that. You also have to love the comfy rooms with vintage furniture and details (including a big old black desk phone), and the fact that each room comes with its own little garage. Go down the street and get an amazing New Mexican breakfast at Kix 66 or an oversized stein of beer at the Pow Wow.
