This is obviously an older-style motel that doesn't look like much from the front (mainly because you see all the doors and the cars and the cleaning people and all that). But for the price and for what it is, it can't be beat. Oh yeah--it was also really quiet. We stayed in a simple room with two double beds,...

The service was excellent from the initial call to set up the reservation to the check-in and throughout the whole stay. The owners were very gracious hosts and very informative about good places to eat around the motel or further out as well as giving information about areas and activities of interest after we had talked a bit and let...

I cannot rate this motel high enough. Absolutely the best motel I have ever stayed in. Staff was warm and welcoming. We stayed in a divided room and could not have been more pleased. The beds were so comfy. In the morning had our coffee on the great patio overlooking the garden/pool area. The grounds are very well manicured. The...

Chode this motel based on TA reviews. Quaint mom & pop place on the parkway. Good restaurants around it, and within walking distance. Motel is a little dated in decor, and needs some weatherstripping on doors. Overall, it was a good place to lay our heads down at night.

My husband and I went to Lake of the Ozarks for vacation and to visit family. We had stayed at the Golden Door Hotel once before (2015) and had planned to stay there again this year. It is small place which is why I think it's so good. The owners are great!! They are super friendly, the grounds and rooms...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Golden Door back in July. Although it is an older hotel, it is very well kept and run. The room was comfortable and the AC worked great. The outstanding customer service/care is what deserves the most praise. After leaving and arriving in Branson(over 2hrs away), the owner/manager called us and let us know...

Nice family run. Heated pool Rooms could use a little updates. Close to outlet mall and restaurants Located on the old highway so not as much traffic. Close to attractions. Miniature golf indoor area for kids is great when it rains also close to go- karts. Reasonable rates perfect for family's.

I have stayed here a few times for a weekend get-away, or on business. If you don't mind a dated Mom & Pop Motel... that is clean.. and in need of new TV's and maybe a few upgrades... for a good price.. then this is your place. During peak season, a room is around $75 to $80 .. and it...

Reasonably priced, surprisingly roomy, clean, easy to get to, good location (restaurants and shopping near), super friendly proprietor. Access to sit outside room and area was well manicured, relaxing, and clean. No coffee in room but it was available in the office early (6:30), no microwave or refrigerator but I didn't really need either of them. There was a microwave...

“The most "retro" looking of the rooms are in the 2-story building in the back of the property. It appeared that all of the other rooms were in a few small 1-story buildings, each with its own small lanai. ALL rooms face the inside courtyard which contains the pool, beautiful landscaping and tall trees.”
