Railroad View:  Without a personal visit, the view is questionable.  Due to the hilly area, I am unable to determined if in fact you can really get a railroad view from this motel.  Get a room on the front of the motel.  Train's pass the front of the property via an elevated embankment, and a steel trestle. 

Railroads past Hotel:  Norfolk Southern.

Notes:   

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

Photo Comment:  The aerial view may look better than its to be desired.  This is a very hilly area.  Route 18 (Big Beaver Road) as seen in the picture is well below both the railroad and the motel.  In fact, you can not even see the motel building from Route 18.  The Holiday Inn motel is higher in elevation then the railroad tracks, but brush & tree's could be a major obstruction in viewing the railroad from the motel.  If anyone can supply information as to the view and train frequency of this motel, please drop me a note at [email protected] .

Railroad View: Fair to Poor View due to Evergreen tree's planted along the back side of the motel (along the railroad tracks).  With a railroad grade crossing just south of the motel, it maybe possible to get track-side when a train approaches.  If it wasn't for the Evergreen tree's, this motel would have the best railroad view in town, since its located directly next to the tracks.  Rooms on the rear of the motel face the tracks.
