This hotel was not only safe, clean and comfortable, it was also a lot of fun. Our room was really nice with updated decor. The bed was super comfy, the bathroom and shower were very clean and updated, and the amenities were very nice. Also, despite the chaos of graduation weekend, all of the employees were so nice and patient....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 February 2017

The Depot Inn & Suites is, in a word, outstanding. My family has made a point to stay here at least once a year for the past decade or so, and we have always loved it. From the museum-quality train exhibits, displays, memorabilia, and décor, to the immaculately spotless rooms and common areas, this place is an absolute delight. We...

I live in Kansas City and am used to staying in higher end Hilton properties, and this hotel was every bit as clean. I would def recommend this hotel, and I will return. I had a 30 min conversation with the friendly owners.

I have stayed here three trips to the Kirksville area. Worth the trip to and from Kirksville everyday. Warm, friendly staff. Comfortable rooms. Best part though is the history and the train viewing deck! Don't miss out, take some time to watch the trains!

Quirky small town setting close to Kirksville which is home to Truman State University and AT Still U. Were in town with a family group to attend graduation. Nice comfortable atmosphere with a clean inviting indoor pool and back outside area set up for a group picnic or BBQ. Owners are friendly and accommodating--this is an independent family run business....

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms where large and comfrontable. I wish they had a better breakfast though, that's my only recommendation. I will go back and stay with Them again when I'm in town.

Our first stay at the Depot Inn was great. The room was comfortable. The staff was friendly and personable. Loved the railroad decor and enjoyed the museum out back. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is a great break from staying at one of the "chains". It is a family-owned establishment that caters directly to the needs of its guests. Everyone is extremely friendly. I've stayed here multiple times as my son and daughter were students at Truman State University. This hotel is only 10 minutes outside of Kirksville and is a far...
