This was our first stay here, what a wonderful place. We do not play golf, we came to Orlando to go to the parks. It did have the feel of an old mountain lodge, the décor was old fashion, but our room was impeccably clean, housekeeping was excellent!! At most other Orlando hotels you always hear people coming in/out at... More

I recently came back from a 5 night stay at what I consider one of the finest golf resort/hotels in the country. To say that I am biased in making this assessment is an understatement as I have been coming down to Bay Hill on a regular basis since 1970. This year I was joined by 13 other gentlemen including...

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.

Stayed for a night and checked in around 4. I was doing a day trip with my 2 kids aged 5 and 3 to Disney and got a good deal for this hotel 93$ per night which I was happy with. Room had 2 queen beds and was clean, had a balcony and free wifi. (no mini bar - BOO... More

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
