Railroad View:  Poor / Fair.  Rooms on the rear (north side) of the building, 2nd floor will give you the best view.  Due to trees & brush behind motel along with a 6-foot high fence, the view is poor during "green" season.  The view is slightly improved once the leafs are off the trees.

Notes:  This motel has not been rated by RailfanMotels.com 

Comments: While in town visit the Connecticut Valley Railroad.

Photo Comment: The double track main is Amtrak's Northeast Corridor.  Trains which include the Acela Express pass fast.  The Amtrak station is a couple miles east of this motel.  Photography is difficult from the motel itself.
