Railroad View:  Excellent View from the motel property, however, view from the room window is expected to be poor or not available.  Stepping outside your door will provide a view.  Another "stike" is exactly "what" you can see from the room.  Although it takes little if any effort to see rail-cars, see a passing train maybe impossible.  Most rail-cars parked along US-301 are waiting for shop time, or have just been released from the shop.  These cars may block the view of passing trains using the main tracks. 

Railroads past Hotel:  CSX.  The active CSX Transportation Baldwin Car Shop is located across from this motel.

Photo Comment:  The Best Western motel is seen to the upper left side of the photo.  The railroad is across the road (US-301), parked railroad cars will likely block the view of passing trains.  The shop building in the picture is active, which may lead to standing cuts of cars being moved around during the day.
