This was my second visit to the Depot Inn, both on railfan tours of the Mid-West. For this it is well suited being close to the busy ex-Sante Fe main line and with a convenient viewing platform, albeit one that is not a particularly good location for photography. The rooms are comfortable with a touch of luxury in the furnishings... More

We just stayed at the Depot Inn for five nights, it was certainly not a cookie cutter hotel, a refreshing change. It was very neat and tidy as well as clean and comfortable. But most of all we were very pleased with the extras provided. We had unlimited use of a golf cart, pool table, and access to a PC... More

Who would have ever guessed that there would be a place as beautiful, comfortable, and interesting as the Depot Inn and Suites in LaPlata, MO! We could not believe it when we rolled into town on the AMTRAK Southwest Chief and were greeted by Taylor Snodgrass and her beautiful smile. She picked us up and delivered us from the train... More

For the price my only complaint would be the breakfast. Great if you like dry cereal or bananas, make your own waffle maybe. Super8 has that for 57 bucks. Wifi great, tv great, but come on, its 2014 serve some breakfast for 140 bucks a night.

My father and me stayed here for 2 nights. The beds are very comfortable but we only had one glass in our room. We had 2 cups for coffee. The breakfast needs improvement. If you eat the continental, check the dates! Especially on the milk. Had a hard time finding a carton that wasn't expired! If you're a train buff,... More

A nice place to stay for anyone, but if you like trains, they offer a lot. The decor is rail-motif, and nearby is an observation platform for trainspotting. This place is a true labor of love of trains. What more could you ask for?

What a delightful place. Beautiful lobby, very clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was spacious. Breakfast was limited but fine as well. Did not use the pool. Only suggestion I have is to add a brighter light to shower area. Hotel has railfan camera monitors in lobby broadcasting from a nearby heated cabin above the tracks.(Also... More

Located far from interstates in the northeast quarter of Missouri is La Plata. While the area may get visitors such as business travelers or friends or family visiting loved ones, this motels draw to the area is train-buffs. Depot Inn was built brand new as a railroad themed motel. The motel itself can be a museum itself. Throughout the lobby... More

This hotel is north east Mo's well kept secret. We heard about this hotel and the train museum and all the memorabilia from a friend. Depot Inn has the best staff we have seen at a hotel in a very long time. The rooms were very clean,quiet,along with a king bed that was just perfect. The staff picked us up... More

Over the years we have stayed at most of the hotels in the Kirksville area, and this one is just head and shoulders above the rest The rooms are impeccably clean! The regular rooms are large, with plenty of room to open up your large suitcases. The beds are very comfortable (I really liked the platform base which gives the... More
