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 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
