We stayed here for the weekend absolutely beautiful hotel the staff was so nice. The rooms were very nicely decorated. This hotel was only 15 minutes from Truman University but saved us $35 a night from the Holiday Inn Express. We were also able to take our dog which Holiday Inn wouldnt allow

If you like trains, you will be in train heaven here, in this train themed hotel. Services are great. Rooms are nice modern and clean. WiFi and breakfast included. Hotel is spotlessly clean. Rates are cheap. Worth the visit if in Kirksville.

My wife and I were in the area visiting our son. Realizing that La Plata is a smaller town, we werent expecting too much. But this hotel ex ceded our expectations. It was super nice. Our suite was great. The train museum was most interesting. We travel a lot for work, and this is nicer than most of the hotels... More

Travelling on Amtrak had a long wait for train - walked into Depot Inn and was greeted like an expected friend. I was just killing time, about 5 hours, but everyone was so pleasant, friendly and helpful I wanted to stay. Great train history. Cannot rate overnight accommodations since I didn't stay, but certainly wanted to. About 15 miles south... More

15-20 minutes and head and shoulders above any accommodations to be found in Kirksville. Stayed many times and always worth the drive time. Clean, smoke-free, and well-staffed, this is a motel that welcomes their guests. Would it be that all motels/hotels were this interested in satisfying their clientele.

We have stayed at the Depot Inn and Suites a number of times. After reading reviews and criticisms, we agree with some but not others. Room: clean. Bed: excellent. TV: new but awkward to manipulate between TV and the railcam. Staff: for the most part, blaise about their duties. Of the five desk clerks that worked during our two night... More

This inn was very clean and well kept. The rooms were good size and modern. They have a railroad "museum" throughout the inn as well!! They served a free breakfast, but we didn't eat there. It is the best place to stay near Kirksville!

Since there were no enticing hotels in Kirksville (my destination), we decided to stay at the Depot Inn. The hotel is clean; the staff friendly. The railroad theme is everywhere, but done quite tastefully. The beds are very comfortable. My only complaint is that the bathroom is extremely dark. The lobby is spacious, and again decorated in good taste. The... More

When checking in, Laurie was very friendly and helpfull. Room was nice, but more like the 1990's rather than 2015. Only 2 plug-ins room. On one set, I had to decide if I wanted to plug my computer in or have a lamp on. Biggest thing was the breakfast. I went out at 7:15, no one at main desk, only... More

Although we did not spend the night, we visited the railroad theme hotel. The theme was amazing. There were railroad artifacts through out the entire hotel. The lobby was comfortable and their were railroad artifacts throughout. The floor where the rooms were had artifacts and even uniforms. The desk clerk was very friendly and so was the housekeeper. The room... More
