Railroad View: Excellent View!  All rooms face the tracks.  2nd floor rooms are best to see down a slight hill.  Rooms on the north wing, closest to the road will offer the absolute best view.  Across from the motel is a railroad grade crossing, trains blow their horn here and its extremely loud.

Railroads past Hotel:  CSX Transportation.  This is a very busy railroad line. 


Comments:  Internet reviews are very poor, train horn noise is only part of the poor reviews.  Management makes you sign a waver on check-in warning guests of train noise.  For visitors that have reservation, and changed their mind due to hearing the train horns or refuse to sign the waver, the motel goes ahead and charges a nights stay anyhow - which we personally feel is unfair.  The reviews we read were posted on TripAdvisor.com, and Yahoo Travel.  One railfan reported to us that its a great place to watch trains, just don't plan on getting much sleep!  This motel has not been rated by RailfanMotels.com

Photo Comment:  Every room in this motel has a railroad view!  Railroad crossing across from the motel generates many complaints from guests.
