I am staying there now because it had good reviews. The people who own it are a very nice older couple, BUT they must not have good help with the cleaning. The couch in my room has thick dust along the back and corners and the seat had crumbs or flakes of something on it. The duvet was very worn... More

I have stayed at the Golden Door many times when in this area on business and expect to return again soon. Dave and Geneice are always warm and friendly making me feel welcomed. Rooms and grounds are always neat, clean and well kept. They have reliable WiFi available to guests in all rooms.

Stayed here and it was a very nice, clean & friendly motel close to Outlet Mall and various activities. The owners were very helpful in recommending eating places and local production show. Enjoyed our stay here.

Nice patio, all facing pool! Drive up to our door. Such nice people that run it. In the middle of it all. Close to the shopping if you want and these people help you find anything. We had so much fun in the pool area that we had pizza delivered. They have grill area and a swing set too. Just... More

This is the 3rd year my husband,2 stepsons (10/12), and I have have stayed. Clean, very affordable, kid friendly, AND not a "party cove" atmosphere! Close to outlet mall, restaurants, and about 10 minutes to the strip. We absolutely adore the owners and all their hard work in keeping the place together. The boys love the game room, CLEAN pool...

This was a first time stay. The prices are reasonable. The rooms and grounds were very clean. The owners are always walking around taking care of things. The beds are a little old but slept okay. It's a nice family atmosphere. Close walk to a few restaurants and icecream. We would stay again.

Golden Door is like a large bed and breakfast. It's a Mom and Pop operation, owned by the same people for 20+ years. Their pride in the place shows in the lovely landscaping and cleanliness, and in their friendly reception and willingness to help. The motel is a circle around a small park with a large outdoor pool, a large... More

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 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
