We had a wonderful time at the Depot Inn and Suites celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. Deepak and Ceema, the new owners, and their staff were very friendly and attentive. The railroad theme and décor are unique and very interesting. It is very clean and comfortable. We look forward to returning.

Great place to stay! You get the personal touch not available at a chain hotel. The owners and staff really care about your comfort. Nice pool, railroad history everywhere, and bicycles available for a ride around this small town. It is a secret I hate to share -- want to make sure I can always get a room!
