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...

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

Although we only stayed for one night with friends, we enjoyed the room which was quiet and comfortable, staff was very pleasant and helpful, golf facility and course was wonderful and we were pleasantly surprised on the food and bar menu. Although the room does not have coffee, they make up for it with an endless supply of coffee in... More

Looks one of the best golf courses in the World. And it is. Beautiful environment, polite staff, nice room (upgraded automatically based on my Expedia VIP card). The only negative issue is the clubstore, the items were very old fashioned...

During our trip to Miami Beach, wife and daughter also wanted to do Disney. While searching for suites, I found this place. I was looking for a quiet place, and this place did not disappoint me. Although, the place seem little older, it is very classy and well maintained. The staff is a delight to talk to. They have many... More

Having grown up near Arnold Palmer's home and having played his courses in Pennsylvania, I was biased going into our stay. However, I wasn't disappointed. The course was in great shape, the rooms were nice (balcony and bathroom too), and the pool/locker room/gym were perfect to my liking. The other reviews about no refrigerator or in room coffee maker are... More

Noticed there was an option for a Bucket list package on the bayhiil.com website. I called to inquire about it no one was in to speak with me so I left a message and one week later still have NOT received a return call. There was a reservation link located on the bucket list page so I selected that and... More

I spent the weekend here and was very happy witht this place. Winter home of the King, Arnold Palmer, the lodge was very comfortable and quiet. Totally relaxing. The golf course and practice facilities were awesome. The lodge also has a beautiful pool and it was not crowded. I would go back here in a heart beat. Very close to... More

Recently spent a night at Bay Hill for the sole purpose of playing the golf course. The hotel was pleasantly small and intimate-feeling. The service was outstanding! From check-in to the restaurant and bar to the pro shop, every employee we dealt with was extremely pleasant and outgoing. We particularly enjoyed Bill B and Jonathan in the restaurant (even though... More
