Railroad View: Excellent View from rooms on the rear of the hotel.  All rooms on the rear are even room numbers and only have 1-bed per room.  Rooms with 2-beds are located on the front of the hotel and will NOT have a railroad view.  After dark, there is enough light to video passing trains.  The rear parking lot is another nice place to watch passing trains.  Hotel windows do open all the way protected by a screen.  Late afternoon sun will wash out most chances of photography from the room.  AM sun light is great for photography from the hotel & hotel property.

Railroads past Hotel:  BNSF Railway.  During my stay in 2016 there was about a train an hour past the hotel.

Notes:   There are no restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.  The hotel is clean and kept in find condition, the breakfast was very nice as well.

Comments: The hotel is about 35-miles from the Rocky Mountain National Park.
