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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

My husband and I came down here for a quick get away, cannot say enough GOOD things about this place, clean rooms, quiet, and the hotel surrounds the pool area, this would be a great place to have a family reunion!!! The owners were so friendly and kind, we will definitely be back, especially in the summer😀

Love, love, love this resort. So much fun to swim, shop, boat and just relax. Beds are comfortable, and rooms are spotlessly clean. Plan to go back every few months to rejuvenate. Close to restaurants, discount mall, and huge grocery store.

“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.”
