Railroad View:  Good to Excellent View.  Railroad runs along the north side of the motel.  Rooms face east and west.  Rooms on the front of the building (west side) maybe better for a railroad view.  Trains cross a grade crossing next to the motel.  This is likely not a busy rail line.  Internet reviews do not mention the railroad much.  One person wrote a train passed at 4am and blew the horn.   

Railroads past Hotel:  CSX Transportation (ex. Baltimore & Ohio Railroad).  1 Main track and 1 siding passes the motel.

Photo Comment:  The eastward facing aerial photo shows the front of the Sleep Inn.  The railroad is seen to the left side of the picture.  A single main track and a passing siding are seen in the photo.  Rooms on the front of the motel will give you a better chance of seeing trains.  Rooms on the rear may have too many trees blocking the railroad view.
