Where should we stop for the night between Atlanta and Kansas City?

Sometime this winter, my wife and I will be driving from Atlanta to a suburb of Kansas City. It's about 14 hours. We want to stop for the night between 4 - 6 hours outside of Kansas City, without adding much time to our overall trip. The target area is somewhere between eastern Missouri and western Kentucky. We'll be on 24 W, 57 N, 64 W.
We would like:
-not TOO rustic cabin OR
-otherwise appealing hotel, motel, etc (no bed and breakfasts, we're gay and don't want to risk awkwardness/rejection in small-town middle america)
-quick access off highway
-something decent to eat nearby and a nice place to walk
We will also have two dogs. We don't want to spend more than $100 for lodging.
Ideas? First hand experience would be very helpful.
