We stayed at the Cliff Manor Inn on Oct. 10, 2016. It is very conveniently located to the trail, the capital, the train station, and the Grand Cafe! We rode the trail north to Rocheport from here, so we took the ramps at the north end of the bridge down to the trail. Going up the ramps would be an exertion! We recommend the Thomas Hart Benton murals at the capital, and the frozen desserts at the Grand Cafe. We left our car for the week at a parking garage at 201 Madison for $2/day.

Sounds like you hit some Jefferson City highlights. I live here and didn't realize you could leave your car at the parking garage for $2/day. People on this forum often ask about parking in Jefferson City while they bike the Katy Trail, so that's good information. I will point out that the ramp on the north side of the MO River from the pedestrian/bike bridge is not that bad if you are going up it. I am almost eligible for Medicare (sorry, I can't bring myself to say my age, it's insane that I'm this old) and I bike up the ramp without much trouble. I hate biking up hills. I do it, I'm getting better at it. But the ramp seems much easier than some of the hills I've encountered in Jefferson City.
