This is a beautiful hotel -- from the stained glass windows in the lobby, to the tastefully decorated rooms to the fascinating train memorabilia that's displayed throughout. We loved our room -- king-size bed, lots of interesting architectural items throughout to make it seem unique and special. One of my favorite parts of the hotel is that every room has...

If you want a great experience in trains and history, I highly recommend staying at the Depot. It is only about 10 minutes from Truman State and is much more colorful than the motels/hotels in Kirksville. While a lot of trains do pass by, we didn't hear any while sleeping, which was nice. The hotel is very well done and...

We expect to visit Depot Inn many times over the next four years! Our daughter just started her freshman year at Truman. We live 3 hours from Kirksville and while we can round trip it in a day, and have, we prefer to drive up the night before. Twice we've stayed in Kirksville, a different motel each time. We hope...

Room was wonderful-extremely clean. We enjoyed looking at the antique trains that lined the halls. Much better value (and much cleaner) than the chain hotels we have stayed at in Macon. When in this area, we will choose to stay here

“Very clean!!”

“If there's space, ask for a room at the back so you don't get light shining through the window at night. Also, remember this is by a train station (hence the attraction), so you may want to set the room fan to "on" at night to drown out some of the train noise.”
