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

We hadn't stayed at Depot Inn for almost 3 years, however we were not disappointed again this stay! We stayed in one of the suites and our teenagers stayed in a regular room. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and the hotel was very accomodating as usual. This hotel is still a gem in NE Missouri and is very worth visiting,... More

I've stayed in hotels/motels in Kirksville off and on for the last 20 years (business travel, fishing/hunting travels) and I doubt, after this past weekend that I ever will again. Depot Inn and Suites has it down pat. The site, property and rooms are Clean! The detail to the theme of the train/rail era is impeccable. Staff are friendly and... More

My friend and I decided to stay here on our road trip to Illinois and Michigan. Both of us are interested in trains. I have passed through La Plata a number of times on Amtrak and it is interesting to me to stop in and see the area around these small stations when driving through. The lobby and hallways of... More

Liked the train historical theme. Even had a train themed playground my daughter enjoyed. The rooms were clean, nice, nothing too fancy. Came with a continental breakfast, though we stuck by the waffle maker. It was tasty enough by definitely not the healthiest breakfasts. The eating area had nice large tables though there were only a few of them. I... More

We stayed here when we came to a Truman State open house for perspective students. We loved our room and actually enjoyed hearing the train whistles as the trains pulled into the Amtrak station. You can even turn the TV to the live cable feed from the station to watch the trains pull in. (Ok, it's a little tacky but... More

Just returned from an overnight stay at Depot Inn. We have been staying at this wonderful, train themed motel since it opened in 2006 when we go visit the relatives that I have left in La Plata and when I/we pay respects to my many ancestors who are buried in this small town.
