Definitely the best motel we've stayed at in the midwest.... and one of the top motels we've stayed at in all our travels across the country - west to east coast.
Depot Inn is very clean, great customer service and easy access right off the highway. We've stayed here 3 times now while visiting family and look forward to it each time. Absolutely zero complaints about this place. Beautifully decorated.
We stayed at Depot Inn the first month it opened in 2006 and then again in 2008 and it STILL looks new at 5 years old! Wonderful place! Fun for kids, playground and stuff for them to do. If you have any love for railroad, you will be intrigued and love this place! It's not just a motel, it's a museum. This is located in a small, laid back town that was built upon the Wabash and Santa Fe lines. The north side of town where Depot Inn and Red Rooster Restaurant is is newer. The rest of the town is fairly old but very interesting, especially to us who had relatives live there lives there. The author, Lester Dent, lived here and his tombstone is in La Plata Cemetery. Be sure to check out Gilbreath-McLorn house there... there are some nice older homes there.
A very nice, casual restaurant with a great menu and reasonably priced is within walking distance. Red Rooster Restaurant has great atmosphere, good food. Depot Inn has a light breakfast of cereal and pastries, coffee and tea, milk, orange juice and if this doesn't accommodate your breakfast wants, then head to Red Rooster.
Excellent isn't high enough rating for this place - can't wait to go back. We've stayed in all types of rooms and have never been disappointed.
