Love staying here. I travel in the area weekly and find this place to be the cleanest, nicest and has the most amenities of any hotel in the area. Train theme is super fun! Recliner in the room is a nice touch I never knew I wanted lol. Cold AC, sleep like a baby.

Hotel's Favorite
Extremely clean theme hotel definitely a newer modern building made to look like a train depot. Room and Bathroom extremely clean. Has very good Mexican restaurant next door and Casey's (about 14 minute drive to McDonald's, Hardee's etc in South Kirksville. Has a ton of train museum pieces behind glass or out on display down the hall and in the lobby. Tons of train and other books and magazines to read. Fridge and microwave are a tad small but appear new and work well. Crown molding throughout the rooms are a nice touch. Water pressure is great and tub drains great. Desk lady is awesome and has candy bars/chips/snacks and bottled soda all for $1.50 (as of 4/2022). Also has hats, tshirts, and sweatshirts for sale too. Train theme pool has water sprayer from above. No smoke smell anywhere.

The Depot was excellent. This is the 4th time we’ve stayed there and it is clean, quiet and a great value. We came forTruman parents weekend and it is only 12 minutes from town. The owners are very hands on to make sure everything is just right.

Room and common space was very clean. Nicely renovated. I was a little skeptical of a small town hotel but I had nothing to worry about as it way exceeded my expectations! Owners were very friendly! Room keys are an actual key!

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at The Depot Inn. Although we are located in a small town we have made every effort to provide all the comforts of home. Our staff strives to make our guests feel welcome and accommodated with anything they may need, and being a smaller hotel we are able to offer individual attention and hospitality that can be hard to find in some bigger hotels. We are a definite gem for railroad enthusiasts with our memorabilia, museum and lookout point. But we also strive to provide everything necessary to enhance the stay of everyone who visits us. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back to Depot !

Enjoyed our stay. Very clean room and the staff was extremely friendly. Train stuff everywhere (cool), you don't see that at hotels. We enjoyed the pool after a long day of traveling. Local Mexican restaurant did not disappoint. Toped our stay off with coffee and breakfast in the lobby! Great stay!

An exceptional stay in such a small town. Our room (J) was clean, roomy, and nicely decorated. Staff was extremely kind and welcoming. Continental Breakfast was impressive and generous with plenty of options. Incredible displays of train memorabilia that are truly fascinating to explore as you stroll to your room and relax in lobby. We were blown away! I’m glad we took the chance and chose to stay.
