Depot Inn & Suites
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in La Plata
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Over the years we have stayed at most of the hotels in the Kirksville area, and this one is just head and shoulders above the rest

The rooms are impeccably clean! The regular rooms are large, with plenty of room to open up your large suitcases. The beds are very comfortable (I really liked the platform base which gives the mattress much more support than a regular bed frame-- absolutely no sagging!)

The staff will very kindly pick you up or drop you off at the nearby historic La Plata Amtrak station.

The breakfast is not fancy, but met our needs very well.

We enjoyed browsing all the train memorabilia in the lobby and hallways. It is a very carefully curated and well-maintained exhibit.

Check out the nearby train viewing platform. It is just so well and cleverly done. My family was really tickled with it! The hotel even keeps a few bicycles in back for those who wish to pedal over to it.

We will be staying at the Depot Inn on all our future trips!

We hadn't stayed at Depot Inn for almost 3 years, however we were not disappointed again this stay! We stayed in one of the suites and our teenagers stayed in a regular room. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and the hotel was very accomodating as usual. This hotel is still a gem in NE Missouri and is very worth visiting, if not for the hotel stay then at least to walk through and look over all the train memorabelia. I highly recommend it!

I've stayed in hotels/motels in Kirksville off and on for the last 20 years (business travel, fishing/hunting travels) and I doubt, after this past weekend that I ever will again. Depot Inn and Suites has it down pat. The site, property and rooms are Clean! The detail to the theme of the train/rail era is impeccable. Staff are friendly and helpful...When I made my reservation, staff reminded me to visit their web page for a 25% discount...what service. the rooms were up to date, great beds, perfect ac, great decor and probably the cleanest room I've ever stayed in-anywhere. LaPlata was the perfect stop for the "Guys Weekend" I had with my boys-perfectly inbetween the locations of Atlanta CA, Sugar Creek CA and Hazel Creek. What a great place!

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side will be more quiet-less highway noise. Bring a swimsuit they have an indoor...

My friend and I decided to stay here on our road trip to Illinois and Michigan. Both of us are interested in trains. I have passed through La Plata a number of times on Amtrak and it is interesting to me to stop in and see the area around these small stations when driving through. The lobby and hallways of the hotel are full of railroad memorabilia. A now defunct line of the Wabash RR used to run in the back of the property. Two Amtrak cars are parked out there, with some mildly interesting items about the history of Amtrak. The station is less than a mile away, and the motel will pick up guests from there. ( and they do advertise they will do the same for the more distant stations of Quincy and Ottumwa. ) We did go down to the neat and trim La Plata station to observe the eastbound Southwest Chief.
The motel rooms are surprisingly comfy and attractive. There is an indoor pool, and a continental breakfast is available, but that was nothing special. Had I stayed more than one night, I would have gone into the town to a local cafe.

Liked the train historical theme. Even had a train themed playground my daughter enjoyed. The rooms were clean, nice, nothing too fancy. Came with a continental breakfast, though we stuck by the waffle maker. It was tasty enough by definitely not the healthiest breakfasts. The eating area had nice large tables though there were only a few of them. I believe I saw two pools, one a table and the other an indoor water kind. The price was cheaper than the last hotel but definitely not super cheap. Seemed about right for the money and locale. The thing that impressed me most is when we forgot our phone charger they took done our address and mailed it to us. Now that's friendly service. The place had a good energy overall to it and would recommend and or stay there again.

We stayed here when we came to a Truman State open house for perspective students. We loved our room and actually enjoyed hearing the train whistles as the trains pulled into the Amtrak station. You can even turn the TV to the live cable feed from the station to watch the trains pull in. (Ok, it's a little tacky but that's exactly what we expect from a small town like La Plata.) The breakfast was good, nothing special, but just what we needed before heading out for a day of university exploration. If it weren't for the quilting ladies who took out their frustrations with one star reviews, the Depot Inn would have an overall "very good" rating. I guess you can't please everyone, but as for us, we were pleased with our stay and will be back if junior decides on Truman State.

1st time here & we have been here for 3 nights & brought our grandson (who we have taken on train vacations for the past 8 years, since he was 4). This is a wonderful, relaxing place and great for anyone who loves trains! Every employee we came in contact with went out of their way to be helpful and made us feel welcome. Our grandson enjoyed the pool when we weren't out in the cabin watching the trains. They provide a golf cart for you to drive to the cabin, as it is not very far and it is also heated in the winter or you can drive your car Also, they have a live webcam on one of the TV channels where you can watch the trains from the comfort of your room. The rooms and hotel were very clean! We loved the large lobby area where my grandson & his pa pa played pool, while my mother in law & I relaxed in the comfy chairs reading and crocheting. The decor is trains, but very tasteful! Yes, lots of trains go by, but they did not disturb our sleep as they are not right next to the hotel. The only drawback we found is you really need to drive to Kirksville (around 10-12 miles) to find someplace to eat, but other than that, we will be back!

Room Tip: We had 4 in our regular room, which was a little tight, but wouldn't have been a problem for 2 o...
