Stayed at the Depot Inn for our anniversary on New Years Eve and found this place to be a real gem here in northeast Missouri. The rooms are very nice, with plush beds, and pretty quiet considering the amount of kids running the halls. What makes this place standout, though, is its connection to the railroad. Everywhere you look are... More

Left Dayton,Ohio early AM. Got to northern Missouri,& found they roll up the sidewalks,& in some cases,the whole town. Stopped at one motel,could'nt accommodate my handicap wife on a bottom floor,but they suggested the Depot Inn. Any port in a storm. The name didn't sink in till I got there. I'm a rabid rail fan,part of our trip west was... More

A wonderful stay at the Depot Inn, as usual. Rooms are very clean and spacious, the bed comfortable, and the staff helpful and friendly. If you are traveling by train, the hotel will pick you up at the nearby historic La Plata station. It was too cold during our recent visit to go to the train viewing platform, which is... More

Comfortable bed, train watching wasn't what we expected. Couldn't see trains from hotel except on camera. Continental breakfast is cereal and packaged sweet roll. Had to ask for toilet paper. Restaurants in area close at 6pm.

The housekeepers complain about cleaning up cereal and diapers. They charge extra. They haven't updated the fading old TV in the suites, the wallpaper is coming off, the carpet is frayed. Breakfast is a waffle maker and milk. We had been coming for years then we got a phone call asking for more money. The lot is usually pretty empty... More

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.
