Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Best Value Inn Summit Plaza (N. Jefferson)

The "Best Value Inn" is no where near the trailhead in Jeff City. The Guidebook says they have a shuttle. We checked with them when we made a reservation and asked if they had a shuttle and they said they did. When we got to the trailhead, they said they didn't have a shuttle and that we should just clinb the hill and take the 4 lane highway to their place. We took backroads and got there but it was a major pain.(March 16th) They do not have a shuttle and they were rude when we asked about it. They said they gave us some discount so they didn't have to come and pick up. It would have been easier to call Checkered cab and go into Jeff City. I will never stay there again.

Two years ago, a rainstorm threw my ride schedule off, causing me to stop at the N. Jefferson trailhead. Not knowing my way around there that evening, I followed the trail spur south to the parallel-running Hwy-63, and then went over the bridge on the west southbound side (the traffic wasn't heavy at that time), but one needs to watch for any grates. I then turned east on Hwy-50 for a couple of blocks. On the south side there, the 'Deville' put me up in a two-bed room for about $70, which would have been less if shared with anothr rider or two.

Not bad considering the cost of some of the sought-after B&B's. More importantly, this hotel is only 1.5-miles from the trailhead, which makes it fairly easy to get to by bike. Other motels also exist in Jeff City, but a rider might need a map or further information to find them easily.

When we called we were told there was a shuttle. We were not given directions to old 54. Nice try. My opinion is the same.

The shuttle issue seems to be a reoccuring theme here. This is not the first time to my knowledge that someone has had issues with the supposed shuttle service.
