Overall good experience. Room was clean and entire property was well maintained. Continental breakfast was humble but sufficient. Train theme was kitchy but fun. Actually had some very interesting memorabilia and allowed us to use golf cart to check out the train viewing area next door. Price was a bit much, but not a lot of choices in the area....

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 would highly recommend your hotel IF the bed had been comfortable. In addition the room I stayed in was close to the main area and the noise level coming from the common area made it such that I could not sleep and be rested for my presentation the next day.

This hotel was great. It has such a neat atmosphere to it. The pool was great and not busy. Breakfast was nice. The employees were super helpful. I loved the rooms too. They had a lot of character to them. We loved looking st all the history inside and out around the hotel. One of the neatest places I've stayed!

Quiet, comfortable stay -- enjoyed the extensive library in the lobby. Two improvements needed: - Something else besides prepackaged pastry for breakfast (some bagels, toast, and toaster). Breakfast selections were very meager, and not comparable to other similarly priced places I've stayed offering complimentary breakfast. If I were to stay there again, I'd find a local restaurant for breakfast. -...

Very friendly and informative owner/manager. very good beds. interesting train memorabilia. I believe there is a museum as part of the hotel. No problem with the sound of the train-our room quiet. Did not get to try the breakfast.

This is a family owned and operated lodging. The customer service by the staff reflects the values and attention to detail of the family. The motel is also a railroad museum and there are numerous artifacts and photos of the bygone railroad era. These are very engaging and stimulate lots of discussion among motel goers. Nice Mexican restaurant next door...

Great place and wonderful staff pretty much more than one would expect being off highway 63. Clean,comfortable with all you can ask for from the staff... only thing that could be better is the breakfast as packaged pastry is not my thing... perhaps some proteins would be nice and a toaster.

We could not have been happier with our room and the Inn. It has a railroad motif throughout, next to the tracks, a great breakfast and wonderful helpful staff. Nice easy drive through beautiful country 20 minutes from Macon. A real jewel in the middle of nowhere.

“If there's space, ask for a room at the back so you don't get light shining through the window at night. Also, remember this is by a train station (hence the attraction), so you may want to set the room fan to "on" at night to drown out some of the train noise.”
