Photo Comment:  The aerial picture shows the Hampton Inn circled in yellow.  The railroad is seen across the open area, marked with red.  This is a busy line, many of the trains over this line are double stack trains.  This is the former Southern Pacific mainline to Los Angeles.  If any businesses / structures get built between the motel and the railroad, the railroad view from the motel may vanish.
