Railroad View: Good View. Any room on the railroad side of the property will be fine for a railroad view. Railroad runs alongside hotel property. Due to a wall around property, get a room on 2nd or 3rd floor. There is a railroad grade crossing just east of the resort. Train's do sound their horns for the crossing.

Comments: This motel has not been rated by RailfanMotels.comPhoto Comment: The beach is on the south side, the railroad on the north side. Some tree's and a wall bordering the parking lot prevents an excellent view of the railroad.
