Photo Comment:  The aerial picture shows the Hampton Inn to the upper right part of the photo (larger building with red roof), the railroad is located across the street.  Those trees will make viewing passing trains very difficult.  The Quality Inn just down the street is a much better motel for a view of the railroad.

Photo Comment:  A railroad view from motels don't get much better then this!  A clear view from all rooms on the back side of the motel.  Besides the railroad, you will look out on the San Sebastian River which is out of the photo along the railroad tracks.  You can likely get an excellent picture of a southbound FEC train with the river in the back round right from your motel room!
