We spent one night at this motel and really enjoyed the decor and cleanliness of the rooms. The lobby of the motel was set up as a train depot office but was decorated beautifully. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the decor in the hallway and rooms made you feel like you were in an expensive train car. Really impressive

This was better than the motel in Kirksville. I loved the railroad themes displays throughout the hotel. The afternoon clerk and morning hostess were very friendly. The morning hostess told me a great deal of information about the university at Kirksville

We decided to leave a day early for Des Moines IA. The hotel we booked there was unavailable so we decided to travel part of the way. I had stayed in Kirksville before and hadn't been too impressed with the choices. Having been up and down Hwy 63 many times, I remembered Depot Inn. While not a huge place, the... More

Would stay there again anytime! Like staying in a small museum. Bent over backwards to make my stay good. I even had a small dog. I came at a time of the year that was very busy with parents and kids going back to college, didn't realize this, and they were able to accommodate me.
