We took a chance and stayed at the local "Golden Door" during the July 4th holiday weekend. What a pleasant experience. The room was very clean and appeared to have been newly refinished. The beds were great too. The owner, Scott, went out of his way to be very accommodating to the point of bringing us a coffee pot and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Golden Door, in a street-side room, for several days in early December while we visited family in the area. Our stay was perfect: the room was very clean and well-equipped, the bed was comfortable, linens and towels spotless, and everything--heat, lights and lamps, plumbing, TV, wifi--worked well. Enthusiastically recommended to anyone visiting or... More

I don't say this flippantly and I have been critical on some of my reviews, but this is the most accommodating motel I have ever stayed at. Not only was Scott (the owner) accommodating, the room was immaculate. Because i was staying for an extended amount of time he rented me the 1 bedroom apartment for a great rate. I... More

Housekeeping was great. Scott always tried to accomodate us on all of our needs. From doing laundry at his facility to finding restaurants and hospitals. He was friendly,... More

Clean and neat room, friendly innkeeper, good price; everything we like in a motel. The room had a fridge and microwave, and the WiFi was great. I would recommend to the owner that the heating thermostat be fixed, and the baseboard heater have the radiant fins turned vertically for better performance. We will be back to the Golden Door even... More
