Railroad View: Good / Fair view from the 3rd floor or higher.  A house fouls the view from the second floor, and a few trees may also obstruct the view, otherwise it’s a good view.  Note: Amtrak may have recently installed a fence along the railroad which may lessen the clean view from the motel.

Railroads past Hotel:  Amtrak / Providence & Worcester.  Most trains are Amtrak passenger trains, including the Acela Express trains.



Photo Comments: Aerial view shows the motel (left side of photo) to the triple track main.  Left photo: With my back facing the railroad, the La Quinta Inn can be seen behind this residential home.  This was a good place to take pictures of passing trains.  Amtrak may have installed a fence here along Onset Street.
