Railroad View: Good Distant View. Rooms on the second floor west or south side will be needed for a railroad view. The railroad is located across Highway 138 and is slightly higher in elevation than the roadway; which makes viewing trains from the motel simple. Binoculars may be needed to read locomotive numbers, zoom lens or video camera should work well for shots from the motel.
Railroads past Hotel: BNSF Railway / Union Pacific Railroad.
Notes: The Best Western Cajon Pass web site lists Train Watching as a local point of interest; "We are close enough to the trains that you can enjoy watching the BNSF and UP trains going by. But we are not so close that the trains will wake you or disturb your stay with us". For railfans touring the Cajon Pass area, this is a great motel . Within walking distance of the motel is Del Taco, Subway Sandwiches, and two gas station mini-marts (Circle K at 76 Gas station, and Shell Food Mart at the Shell Gas station). Within a short drive is a McDonald's Restaurant and a Chevron Gas station, and well as a Extra Mile Mini-Mart (located at Chevron). Not many other services are nearby.
