Kirksville

Very good staff. Made us feel our special day was important to them! Called in our reservation and had it confirmed by email. Pleasant, helpful staff aided in making a super room selection. Upon arriving staff made certain we understood all of the room's special features. There were several, but we especially enjoyed the fire place.

The Depot Inn was perfect for our family get together for Christmas. We were able to have our food out and available to eat as family members were able to arrive. Plenty of room for us to visit, play games, watch the ballgames, play pool, swim, go to the playground, and take naps as needed. Staff were very friendly and...

I needed a few more points from Amtrak Guest rewards program to achieve Select status. A short run on the SW Chief filled the bill.

Stayed for an interview up in Kirksville at AT Still and couldn't have picked a better place. The previous owner was an engineer and collector of all things trains that are throughout the hotel, as well as two train cars behind the hotel with a model train set and other memorabilia. Stayed in a regular room, which had a home-away...

Pleasantly surprised to find such a comfortable "niche" hotel in such a small community. Railroad themed. Super clean and best hotel we ever stayed. Staff unusually helpful. About 200 yards from resturant offering a varied menu with unbelievably low prices. Hotel can be seen from the main highway, with easy access. Truman state is only 10 min drive.

I always like the Depot Inn anyway, but it's even better - if possible - with the new management. Very nice couple, caring, and accommodating. They went out of their way to fulfill a request for us that they really didn't have to do. Great service.

I found the rooms to be clean and comfortable with two exceptions; outlets and lighting. The rooms can use more of each. An extension for the bedside table would be appreciated as well as additional ambient lighting in the room. some LED lights would help quite a bit I think.

The beds are comfortable, the shower is amazing, and the room is beautiful. Have barbeue, bikes, pool tables, heated indoor pool, golf cart, guest laundry. Everything I need when I travel. Honestly, I'd rather drive here rather than staying in Kirksville. Especially if you like trains. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever needed up out this direction.
