Photo Comment:  The aerial image shows the Super 8 motel circled in yellow near the top of the photo.  The railroad can be seen near the bottom of the photo.  The view from the Super 8 is marked with blue.  The major obstacle which decreases the view from the Super 8 is the Comfort Inn motel which is located between the railroad and the Super 8.  3rd floor rooms in the Super 8 will help keep you above tree's, parking lots, and Burger King which is located in front of Comfort Inn.  Although Super 8 faces the tracks directly, the better view would be from the Comfort Inn across the street.
