Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Boonville Lodging


Does anyone have experience or opinion with the lodging options in Boonville. Seems mostly chain hotels but I noticed some were a bit of a distance off the trail. Anyone stayed at the Holiday Inn Express?

If you are interested in lodging close to the trail, I would suggest either the Isle of Capri Hotel or Hotel Frederick. The trail is literally "right there". Very close to both of them. There are also some nice B&B's in Booneville. Click on "Towns and Services" above, then find Booneville, then scroll to find lodging options. Good Luck!

We have a group that rides the whole trail every year and we always stay at the Hoilday Inn Express in Boonville. There is a spur off of the Katy that runs to it.

The Holiday Inn Express and the Comfort Inn are both a short ride off the Katy...probably 1/8 to 1/4 mile. The turn off is marked with a sign on the east side of the trail, just north of the I70 bridge a ways. We've stayed at both.

The Hotel Frederick is a nice step back in time and is close to main street restaurants. It also houses Glenns Cafe and a small bar. We've stayed there many times as they are very bike friendly with secure storage. And they offer a discount to riders.....check their add on the home page. Most of our trips that include a night in Boonville take us back to the Frederick, or to the Comfort Inn if we are trying to spend/accrue travel points.

The High Street Victorian B&B is just a block or so east of the Frederick. It too is close to the trail and very bike friendly.

Hi, The High Street Victorian is just three doors up from the Fredrick, and is a great B&B and very bike friendly and offers afternoon and evening snacks and a GREAT multi course breakfast. We'd love to have you!

My experiences support the comments and recommendations above. The one thing I would add is that in my experience the Isle of Capri Hotel/Casino is NOT bike friendly...and you will smell like smoke for a week after a visit there. I tried it, but given the other good options in Boonville, I will not go back there. Just my 2 cents.

Days Inn was a good value and clean... no real complaints but is a little way from the trail. Not sure of the milage.

Days Inn is about 3 miles from the trail. I have reservations there for 2 weeks from now and the one thing I was concerned about was the ride from the trail to the hotel and then from the hotel back to the trail. Anyone have any experiences with what type of traffic we might encounter when staying there?

Boonville is a small town, so traffic will not be an issue. The hotel is about 4 miles south of the bridge crossing, just stay on Main Street. About mile and half north of the bridge you will have a steep hill to pull, but other than that it will be a breeze. If you are coming off the trail from the south, different directions, and a bit more involved. Take the spur at the small kiosk on the south side of Boonville, follow that up past a manufacturing plant. You will end up at Radio Hill Road. Turn north to Sportsman Road, east to Hwy 5/Bus Loop 70/Ashley Road, then north to Logans Lake Road, East on Logans Lake Road to Rt B/Main, then South a couple miles and you will see it on your right.
