We just completed a fantastic 4 day ride-4 adults and 5 kids, ages 4-11. We stayed at two tried-and-true spots, which didn't disappoint, the Bothwell in Sedalia and the Globe in Hartsburg. Also had a really great stay in Boonville at The Officer's Club, which I can't recommend highly enough. They manage to be kid-friendly, while also elegant enough for any special occasion. It is close to the trail (uphill of course, but I think everything in Boonville is), and is a beautifully restored historic house that was once part of Kemper Military Academy. It was well-stocked with cold drinks, fresh cookies and other snacks, books, movies and board games-I almost wish we had gotten held up by the weather. Breakfast was hearty, tasty, and beautifully presented. Also of note in Boonville, there is a very good Italian restaurant called Napoli on Main Street, and we had the chance while there to peek into Boonville's newest B&B, an eclectic little spot called 4 Doors which is just off the patio of Napoli-definitely NOT for kids--it has lots of original artwork.
Out next stop was Rocheport, where we had pleasant, though far more modest accomodation at the Katy Trail Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in a room big enough to accomodate all 9 of us, so the price was VERY reasonable for our group. Also a very tasty breakfast.
One place I haven't seen mentioned on here before that is definitely worth knowing about (partly because you would never expect it) is the Thai Kitchen at Cooper's Landing: Fresh, fantastic Thai food cooked to order on the spot! Don't miss it.
