Comments: This motel has not been rated by RailfanMotels.comPhoto Comment: The aerial picture shows the Hampton Inn circled in yellow. The railroad is seen across the open area, marked with red. This is a busy line, many of the trains over this line are double stack trains. This is the former Southern Pacific mainline to Los Angeles. If any businesses / structures get built between the motel and the railroad, the railroad view from the motel may vanish.
