          They do not have air conditioning in any of their units. This is an old motel that was converted and remodeled.

          I am interested in staying at this hotel in February and noticed the BNSF RR tracks a block away. Can anyone tell me how often the trains run on these tracks? Time of day? How long? Thank you.

          Not sure, because I rented my unit out. You would have to call the resort to find out. I know some do have air conditioning but not sure which ones or if all of them do.
