    Do I expect such a serendipitous stay. The neon beckoned and we were entranced. Kevin and Nancy are 2 of the reasons Rte 66 still exists. The Blue Swallow has the best beds of any we have stayed in and we have crisscrossed the U.S....More

    Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here. The nearly endless hot water is due to the nearly-new Rinnai tankless water heaters we use to serve all the rooms now. No one ever runs out of hot water! Thanks again, and hope...More

    Can't remember, but I know the price range was $69-129. I think we paid less than $100. Well worth it-too cute.
