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

Really beautiful place to stay, so much history hanging on the walls. I don't know what happened with other guests but I found the front desk staff to be really helpful! They even showed me where the club locker room was where all the pros come for the tournament each year. Yes no coffee maker, no refrigerator/ microwave but who... More

Our trip was AMAZING! Service was impeccable from check-in, restaurant, members lounge, all the way to the salon and spa. If you go; I strongly recommend Christa in the salon and Aundre for a massage at the spa. Both are very professional accommodating. Both were the best I’ve ever had.Thanks! We will be back 

The golf course is great, as it should be with Mr Palmer at the helm. The Lodge is ok, not luxurious, but is comfortable, has a great breakfast and lunch menu. Just what people coming to golf want. I totally understand that this place is all about golf and the vast majority of the guests are men, but, if you... More

If you're looking for ultra-modern rooms and surroundings this is not the place for you. If, however, you are looking for a place with PGA Tour calibre golf where you will feel welcome the moment you enter reception then you really need to stay and play at Bay Hill. The service at Bay Hill is friendly and prompt, Bay Hill... More

First, this is a lodge not a hotel which is tucked away in what appears to be another Florida planned golf community. Once you find the property you will not see any signs noting where to check in for the lodge, you have to guess. This is more about golf apparently. My wife and I drove around the parking lot...

royschindele, Director of Sales at Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Lodge, responded to this review

Completely understand your suggestion about more signage... and indeed this could perhaps help some.. Our mandate as to signage comes from the owner Mr. Palmer, who lives and works here since 1070... He does allow for basics in this area like at the main entrance, etc... but feels we are a small enough property with only one parking lot and... More
