Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Clinton Lodging


Which hotel/motel is closest to the trailhead??

Technically, I believe it is more or less a tie between Days Inn, Safari Motel, and USA Inn as they are all in the same area. However, none of them have direct access to the trail. I ended up at the Days Inn when I was there, but I have not been there enough to say if there are others that are more accessible by bike or foot.

Probably the best lodgings are at the Holiday Inn Express. It is not directly by the trail, but if you don't mind you can access reasonably well. Just before you cross I-70, ease off to the east. Might have to cross about 100 yards of a corn field to hit the access road. The rest is just a short ride east to the hotel which is on the north side of the interstate.

Arkie, I believe you may be thinking Booneville, but I am little confused about the shortcut through a cornfield as I have not heard that one before. I-70 & Holiday Inn Express are not in Clinton, MO.

Doug, Steve is correct about the three way tie above but keep in mind that Clinton is a very small town and flat. Most of the motels and eating joints are on the south end of town. We stayed at the Hampton last fall and they were very accommidating for bikers. We rolled our bikes right down the halls. In the morning it is only a couple mile easy ride to the trail head....not bad if you are going 225! Have fun.

For what it is worth - I've used the USA Inn. It's handy to the trailhead and CHEAP. While it is not new, nor fancy, I found it to be exceedingly clean and comfortable when I stayed there in October before heading east on towards St. Charles.

Mea culpa! Absolutely correct and I apologize. You asked about Clinton and I spoke to Boonville. I did stay at the Hampton Inn at Clinton and found those folks to be very gracious and helpful. Several restaurants nearby and a Walmart across the highway. It is a quick ride to the TH along the hgihway.

I just stayed at the USA Inn last night. As El Tor said, not fancy, but clean and cheap. It's 1.3 miles from the trailhead on easy wide streets. Breakfast isn't fancy (cold cereal, cinnamon buns, bananas,coffee and juice) but it was enough to do until I went through Windsor and picked up something at Casey's. My only suggestion would be to ask for a room on the back side farthest from the road if possible. I was on the front side and close to the highway and the semi's were noisy coming to a stop and starting again at the stoplight.
