This Is The Most Unique Hotel In New Mexico And You’ll Definitely Want To Visit

There’s an argument to be made that Kokopelli’s Cave is the most unique place to stay in our state. As incredible as that experience may be, the cave accommodations consist of one 1700-square foot suite, making it more of a rental than a hotel. However, there is a New Mexico hotel that provides a one-of-a-kind stay that you’ll remember fondly for years to come.

The Blue Swallow Motel transports you back to the height of Route 66’s popularity, and the days of sock hops and poodle skirts. This traditional motor court is a perfectly preserved slice of the past, with period-appropriate amenities.

Classic car owners flock to the Blue Swallow for the garages and the nostalgia. You’re likely to see some vintage autos during your stay, but that also means that the Blue Swallow tends to be booked far in advance. If you’d like to spend a night here, visit the motel’s website. The Blue Swallow is located at 815 E. Route 66 Boulevard in Tucumcari.
