Questions: 1. How easy it to get around by bike to hotels in Jefferson City? 2. Any suggestions for hotel in Jefferson City that are easily accessible to hotel and places to eat?

I have only ridden in Jefferson City on three different days. Each day it was a ghost town. We stayed in the Baymont, which was cheap and decent and had some food nearby. And was also close to Central Dairy, a key consideration. A lot of new options have opened since then, though.

I'd agree with the ghost-town. We stayed there last fall and rolled in around 3-4pm. Very little traffic. Also stayed at the Baymont..nice hotel, no issues, clean, good shower. As for eats..Arris Pizza right by the capitol building...really good! Great pizza and Greek salad.

Speaking of ghost towns, perhaps a stay at the new Courtyard by Marriott would be up your ally. It’s the former St. Mary’s Hospital converted to a hotel, would be interested in hearing from tourist if they encounter the paranormal. It’s a short ride from the end of the bike/pedestrian bridge over the Missouri River and plenty of local eateries/pubs nearby.

So you say the Marriott is close to the trail in Jeff City? or the Baymont? Just blocks or we talking miles? thanks for any info

Definitely just blocks. Coming off the bridge pathway, turn east on Main towards the Capitol, turn south unto Boliver (Paddy’s Pub is on the corner of Main and Boliver) the Courtyard by Marriott sits on Boliver From there you can see the Capitol Plaza hotel and the Baymount Hotel and easy access to Big Whiskeys, Arris Pizza, Central Dairy Ice Cream any many more downtown restaurants.
