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

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
