I read from other guests about the loud noise from the trains going by. My room was perpendicular to the tracks and midway between the front and back. I was not bothered much at all by the noise and I am a light sleeper. It was a pleasant stay.

Thank you!! Actually, there only is a couple rooms that you can hear the train.. I'm glad you had a good night stay. When making your next reservation you can always request a room away from the train. Hope to see you again!
