Photo Comment:  The aerial photo shows the Fairfield Inn to the upper right, the double track railroad can easily be seen near the left side of the picture.  Even though there are some tree's along the motels property, and some others in scattered beyond the property, we believe there is enough open space between the tree's to capture an excellent view from the 3rd floor rooms.  We have not yet visited this group of motels in Billings.  If anyone has stayed at one of these motels in Billings, drop us a note here, thanks.

Railroad View:  Fair View from 2nd floor rooms on the railroad end of the building.  This motel is sandwiched between the Fairfield Inn and the Quality Inn motel.  Of the 3 motel, Quality Inn will offer the best railroad views since Quality Inn has rooms that face the railroad directly.  Like the Fairfield Inn, Comfort Inn doesn't have rooms that face the tracks. There are also tree's between the railroad and the motel that lessens most of the opportunity of a view.
