“A Wonderful Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

From arrival to departure, every last member of staff displayed both a welcoming and helpful attitude. Rooms were clean and comfortable, food was outstanding, and golf course was immaculately groomed. Prices may not be the lowest you might find but Arnold does deliver value and absolute enjoyment. Took my wife there for a birthday celebration and she made me promise to do it again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the golf course.

We spent Christmas Eve here and it was perfect! The staff is some of the freindliest I have ever encountered! Championship golf course, clean, understated rooms. All this hidden in a residentail area makes you feel you are at a country club. Highly recomend this hotel for it's unassuming qualities and top of the line golf course with a staff that is amazing!

Room Tip: Christmastime will be the least $$

Stayed here during the Arnold Palmer Invitational, so was more than happy not to have to travel from any other hotel to the tournament.

Staff throughout the hotel were extremely friendly and professional.

Rooms had lovely older furniture and the washroom was huge and modern. Room was very clean. Plentiful supply of soaps etc

Spa is excellent, pool is a decent size.

Free wifi throughout the hotel and a wire connector in rooms.

Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Stayed here because my coworker is a golf nut and wanted to play Bay Hill. Seems as if you are staying at a country club instead of a hotel. Everything was very nice, service good. The lodge itself is a tad bit outdated, with low ceilings, but very clean and nice

Spent (3) nights at the lodge for golf. Great food, great staff, golf course was excellent. Had the opportunity to meet Mr. Arnold Palmer at lunch. Very quite location, many good restaurants nearby. Can't wait to return next year!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

We stayed few nights in this hotel. It is located in a suburban area further away from services and parks, next to golf fields. Room was big, but there was no minibar where to keep refreshments cool. The service at the reception was rather impolite and bothered especially during evening and nights. Good hotel for golfers, but I preferred by far this other hotel which we stayed in Orlando.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2008

Stayed here for four nights for business as customer booked me here. Really didn't understand the reason for this, but experience was, at least, interesting.

This place is "normal" Golf / Country Club with all those needed amenities (Golf, Bar, Clubs, Pools, Spa, Tennis). It is clean, friendly, but a bit odd place for my kind of visit, as I was not using any of their services. Also they have upscale country club dress code, which I didn't know before. No problems of course, but could have been nice to know beforehand. So - no jeans, but slacks with collar shirts. I of course had my jeans and bahamas t-shirt =)

If you are for those activities, this is excellent place. If not, this is nice place.

  • Liked — Friendliness, private club feeling
  • Disliked — Location, upscaliness (if that is a word)
