Notes:  During my stay in this motel in the late 1990's, I didn't have a railroad view (I was on the wrong side of the building), but I remember being able to see the passing trains from the parking lot.  There is a RV park (owned by the motel) behind the motel, it provides a much better view of the railroad.
