Hello, Can anyone recommend budget friendly options for lodgings in Jefferson City, Hermann and Augusta? We are thinking of perhaps bypassing Augusta and pushing on to Defiance, as the lodgings are out of our budget range. Thank you all.

That's pretty vague...."our budget range."

Something no more than $300 per night?

Something no more than $59 per night?

There is also Marthasville, before you get to Augusta:

- On the higher end is our Bank Haus and Katy Haus (both now with a hot tub each)
- Mid range would be the suites at the newly renovated hardware store
- Next down is the Happy Apples Bunkhouse
- Lastly camping at the KT Caboose and the baseball fields

Got the whole range of budget in Marthasville! And a new cafe opening in February from what I understand besides the best pizza in the county at Philly’s Pizza and then Corrie’s Twin Gables for a bar and grill.

Joey’s Birdhouse in McKittrick. Right on the trail. $115/ night Includes great breakfast. Grocery store close by.

"budget", as a polite way of saying, cheaper options than what is listed in the really nice, but swanky website options in Augusta, meaning under $115 a night, which is stretching for us. Seniors, retired, but still pedaling on a budget and wanting "simple", not fancy.
Thanks so much.

You might try the Hermann Motel in Hermann.

See what shows up on AirBnB and VRBO in those places. You might find something more reasonable.

Augusta was a little swanky for us as well. When we rolled through Defiance it looked to be a little more our speed, so I think it would be worth investigating.

It’s called Hoffman hotel price creep in Augusta

I had a conversation years ago with a lodging owner in Hermann about changing their bookings to 2 night stays only. I wanted to book one night as I had in the past and she said it was a two night stay only. I commented that by doing so, they were cutting a lot of potential patrons out. Her reply was that was not true as there were plenty of people from the St. Louis area that would fill her rooms anyway. So, I was rendered inconsequential.

Price creep in this area of the trail precedes what is happening in Augusta today. The Hoffmann folks may follow suit, but they certainly didn't start it.

You can't go wrong with Joey's Birdhouse in Mckittrick. It's an experience and an adventure. We love it.

Although not for riding the trail, we have stayed in Hermann at a place called the Vinchester. Nothing to write home about, but clean, centrally located and they have bike storage. Not sure why they don't show up in the trip planner, but they sound very KT biker friendly. Planning our trip for this year and they are on the plan.
