Quiet getaway

Pros: Location, charm, and quiet
Cons: Refrigerators in the room
Location: Parks, restaurants, shopping
The resort is close to everything I visit: the parks and all the fabulous restaurants on restaurant row but quiet when you get to the inn. Staff is friendly, and the restaurant is first class

Bucket List Golf Experience

Pros: The Bay Hill Lodge is a not your typical hotel. This a combination Country Club and quaint comfortable Lodge all in one.
Cons: I can't think of a thing that need to be improved.
Location: Very close to the Theme parks and City Walk.
Exceeded my expectations on every level. The staff of Bay Hill bent over backwards to make my stay an experience of a lifetime. They made me feel like I was a member of the club. I belong to a Country Club and I have never been treated as well as I was treated during my stay at Bay Hill. The front desk staff welcomed me every time I walked in the door and took care of any request that I made. The Bar staff was extremely friendly and answered all of my many questions about Mr. Palmer. The girls that work the snack stand and beverage cart were outstanding. The food and drinks in the restaurant were reasonably priced and very high quality with superior service by the wait staff. The best meal I had in Orlando. The golf course was in good condition and challenging yet fun to play. The Golf Shop staff worked with us on tee times and even found a way for us to play the back nine again after our round. The Lodge and Golf course were excellent but, it was the staff's personal attention caring nature that put my stay over the top!

The hotel was clean, Staff was polite and helpful.

Pros: Beautiful view from the lounge area and delicious margaritas.
Cons: Lower the price of breakfast.
Location: The hotel was quite close to local establishments but just far enough away.
I was unpleasantly surprised by the price of the breakfast; we went out to eat. The hotel was conveniently close to the wedding activities we were attending for the weekend.

Oasis in Orlando

Nice stay found thru travelocity. Husband and I enjoyed the peace while our daughter visited with a local friend. Located in a beautiful and peaceful area of Orlando, situated centrally for access to Disney and Universal. Lots of great restaurants nearby. It's a golf club and we didn't come prepared with appropriate attire for the restaurants, golf or tennis but enjoyed the pool and the gym. The room was beautiful and right on the golf course. We'd go back again but better prepared to enjoy the services on site.

I loved the feel of staying at this historic lodge

I loved staying at this historic lodge. The staff were extremely friendly and went out of there way to be helpful. If you love golf, the atmosphere of staying with fellow golf lovers is a treat. I also liked that the lodge is located in a quiet, beautiful area of Orlando. A get away from all the hubbub of the city and Theme Parks.

Definitely worth a visit!

We were only at the Lodge for one night and unfortunately didn't have the time to play golf. We found the Lodge to be well maintained, comfortable and a great value. The staff was friendly, courteous and very accommodating. Would definitely recommend a stay at Bay Hill for every fan of Arnold Palmer and anyone else seeking a quiet, cozy retreat from the craziness of the theme park hotels.
