A small, one level, hotel on the edge of a small town ... or is it a railroad museum with rooms and a pool. Everywhere I looked was clean, even all the railroad memorabilia (authentic antique memorabilia, not kitchy reproductions) lining the hallway. The furnishings in the room were clean and functional, the plush leather rocking chair was very comfortable, the bed was firm enough without being too firm. The linens on the bed and in the bathroom were clean. The minifridge and microwave are quite small; I had no reason to use them but expect they work. The TV worked and had a good selection of cable channels.

My room faced the highway, but at least the night I was there, it was not busy with trucks, and even the few that went by could only be heard near the window. Occasionally I could (just barely) hear the trains blowing their horns. The heater/AC was functional and though not whisper quiet, not loud enough to disturb me (or cause me to raise the volume on the TV).

For breakfast I noticed mainly dry cereal, cellophane wrapped pastries, apples and bananas, and the waffle maker. I was meeting relatives in Kirksville for breakfast, so only grabbed a couple of items for my long drive back to Indiana that afternoon.

I arrived late in the evening, so I didn't need to worry about supper; but other than the Mexican restaurant next door, you'd probably need to go 10-15 miles into Kirksville to find a restaurant, especially if you just want fast food. If it's Friday, try Bakers Smokehouse (on the square) for supper; or Tues-Sat for lunch; enjoyed great barbecue for lunch on a previous trip in March 2018.

My only complaint: the temperature you set on the heater seems to be the temperature at which it turns on and starts heating the room; rather than the temperature to keep the room at. I had it set on 68, and it felt like it ran until the room temperature was 75 and then shut off and let it settle back to 68 before starting up again.

This hotel is very clean, well maintained, with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Just 10 minutes from Kirksville. I always stay at this hotel when visiting family. Very quiet area. The train theme is very interesting even though I am not a train enthusiast. The heated indoor pool is an added bonus for relaxing in the evening before turning in.

The hotel is very clean and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast is lacking in any protein. The train antiques were fun to look at. I was depending on other reviewers opinions and was not disappointed.

Beautiful and historical hotel. All staff members were courteous and patient, and the stay was reasonably priced. The room was cozy and clean, and the bed was not an uncomfortable brick like some hotels.

Loved the train history, and all the little hobo symbols on each room door; I learned something quirky and fun!

I would highly recommend this hotel, and would definitely stop here again.

Our first time staying here although had heard good things from friends. Our stay was for a short birthday getaway. We are thinking about making this a birthday tradition. It's railroad themed motif and museum quality displays make this perfect for anyone who likes trains.
