The room smelled musty. We had to go buy candles to make the room smell better.. It was good for what we paid for it. I guess that is why they say "You get what u pay for." It was back in 2010 so it could be better now!!

I will truly admit that this is the cleanest motel room I have ever stayed in---hands down!!! Loved this ace and the owners! Yes it is retro-no fridge or... More

I have been going to the Lake of the Ozarks since I was a toddler. The Golden Door Motel is like The Lake used to be. Relaxed, laid back and a ton of fun. I have stayed at all the top tier properties and this is place is hands down my all time favorite. There are no coffee makers or... More

If you did not know about this place, or stop in and look around, you could drive right by and think it was a dump; as the motel does not look that inviting from the road. However, once you walk through the breezeway (old drive up lane) and enter the courtyard of the property (which all rooms face), you will... More

LOVE this place! Reminds me of motels from my childhood! Exceptioally clean. The outdoor pool is in a garden setting, surrounded by the rooms so it feels private and quiet. The owners, Dave and Geneice are warm and friendly. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated but that is part of this motel's charm. I hope to stay here every... More

My wife and I stayed at The Golden Door for our anniversary and we really enjoyed ourselves! We love all things mid-century, and The Golden Door didn't disappoint. It has been updated as needed, but they have done a great job of keeping the character and feel of what motels were like in the 50's and 60's. We visited with... More

Remember car trips and small Mom & Pop owned motels with the owners apartment attached to the Lobby??? The Golden Door is that place. The owners love their motel and enjoy interacting with their guests. The motel has large, tree shaded, grassy courtyard with the pool in the middle. The grounds are beautiful. Parts of the motel date back to... More
