Has anyone stayed at the Midway Budget Inn? Was it nice? We have a family of 5 and are having trouble finding accomodations for June 2 that will take kids, ages 13, 11, 9. Thank you!

The Midway Budget Inn is quite a distance off the trail down U.S. 40 OR I-70 from Rocheport. I have never stayed there, so I can't speak for the motel itself.
However, access might be a problem. If you have road transport to and from the motel, that might not be too bad, but if you are planning on biking it, that could be dicey.
I would suggest staying in Boonville, where the Hotel Frederick will be open by then or at Isle of Capri hotel. Both are located right on the trail. Columbia might be a good option, too, since you can take the 8.9-mile MKT trail into downtown Columbia.
Camping at Katfish Katy's might also be a better option.

We just returned from a cold trip to Rocheport and stayed at the Katy Trail Bed and Bikefest in the Carriage House which is a room over the garage. It was very spacious - it sleeps 8 with 2 queens and 2 futons. It also have a small fridge plus table and chairs. We had our children w/us - ages 8, 6, and 18 months.
