My boyfriend and I stayed for 2 nights last weekend. I believe in stating all the positives first. So, I loved the old mountain lodge feel and the rooms/bathrooms were nicely done. There was also a lovely balcony. The first thing that we noticed initially walking into the room was how moist the air was. The towels wouldn't even dry... More

We have stayed at Bay Hill a number of times the past. Again we have found the lodge and spa to be excellent and the staff polite and helpful. The golf course was in good condition,the only down side was some rain in the afternoon that said i had a great time and will return again.

The place is definitely for the "old" guard country club set. I was sure I was going to see to Thurston Howell, III and Eunice "Lovey" Howell walk through the door any second. Beds were lumpy but some how comfortable. The best part of a room at the lodge was the bathrooms which must have been redone recently as they... More

What a wonderful experience! The entire Bay Hill experience is unforgettable! My wife and I throughly enjoyed our time. We were greeted like old time friends when we arrived, and treated as such until we've left. Rooms are quaint, quiet, and have a wonderful view if you're on the golf side. Don't expect a resort, expect and welcomed quiet release.... More

Don't trust your GPS when trying to find. It will bring you a couple miles deeper into the country club community and the entry sign is blocked by plants so very easy to drive past. If you have no idea where you're going it will be difficult to find. On walking in front desk staff was lounging back with their... More

By far the best golf experience of the year. The food was excellent and you could not ask for a more challenging golf course. The pulled pork was melt in your mouth and the potato salad was just like mom's.

I am not all that picky. However, the room (#412) was VERY moist. It was very uncomfortable. The burlap sacks that they use as pillow covers and comforter are also uncomfortable. The style is old (not a big deal) but because they had old furniture they could not accommodate a flatscreen TV of any reasonable size. The place is VERY... More

I'm sorry you had a less than par experience & impression.... FYI - The Rooms were renovated completely 5 years ago... down to the rafters... Spent 7 million dollars redoing the 70 room lodge buildings... All the furniture was new, bedding new, top to bottom new. We implemented the latest technology such as key-less entry system... Just waive your room... More

Bay Hill is a gem but it certainly has its downsides. The rooms are a bit old and smelly. It is nothing fancy but we expected that. It could do with a real overhaul, but it might not be worth it for them as they still get their visitors. It has really nice memorbilia of Mr Palmer everywhere and -... More

One of our all-time favorite places to go for 4 to 5 days, get in a little R&R along with some great golf. The staff is incredible...they always go above and beyond the call of duty for us. Our favorite rooms are overlooking the golf course, since there is a nice covered patio to hang out and watch the sunset.... More
