“Quiet and Safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

It was nice to finally find a quiet place to stay in Orlando. My daughter and i often travel alone and safety is a big concern. We not only felt safe but we were so comfortable we overslept and got a late start home. Thank You

Of course, you can object that the rooms are getting a little old or that the food is not the best in the country…
But do you care?

If you are a golfer is just a dream come true to come to one the word golf meccas…

The course is amazing, the staff is perfect, and you are truly treated like a king.
And, cherry on the cake, you get to meet Arnold Palmer who is the nicest and most approachable golf legend in the world.

Very strong recommendation for any golfer.

We stayed on a golf package and it was brilliant value for money.

Room was nicely furnished, very much an old clubhouse feel to the rooms, all on two floors, a lot of the rooms overlooking the course with balcony's where you can smoke, bathroom was nice enough and complimentary papers. Beds were very very comfortable.

Breakfast was included on our deal, worth it too, lovely clubhouse where you have it, again overlooks the course, they will bring you whatever you want plus there is a buffet too. Service from the staff was fantastic.

Hotel restaurant and bar has a nice feel to it, again it feels like a golf clubhouse but then that's exactly what it is. Plus drinks are cheap at the bar, $3 for a beer which was a nice surprise! Oh and the Golf course is pretty special.

I loved everything about my trip to Bayhill, from the guy announcing my name on the 1st tee, to the beautiful course, I will most definitely be coming back many times.

Room Tip: Request one overlooking the putting greens, simply beautiful.

Booked Bay Hill as surprise for husband who is keen golfer. Got a "bucket list" package which was excellent value. Staff were friendly & helpful - especially Pamela in the Bay Window bar & grill for puttin up with our witty banter for most of the day & night! Food was fantastic too. Excellent value for money!

I lived in Orlando for 20 years and never knew this hotel existed. It is quiet, the rooms are beautiful and it is still near everything you need to get to. It is easy in/easy out in terms of parking, room access, etc. Because it is located within a residential community, you can take a nice walk around the area without lots of tourists. I didn't have a chance to check out the fitness center, but it looked nice. The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars were that the woman at the front desk was not particularly welcoming (a bit like we weren't supposed to be there...), and the food prices were pretty extreme even for Orlando. It is also important to note that there is a dress code for the dining rooms, so keep that in mind if you are planning a trip.

I stayed two nights with my son and husband (who were playing golf at Bayhill) and we all enjoyed the lodge. Its in a great location if you want to stay in the Universal area of Orlando- tucked away in the older golf community of Bayhill. Great access to Universal, Dr Phillips area and Millennia as well. The lodge is very charming but up to date. We had included wireless access- and it was a great connection. We did not eat at Bay Hill or use any of the the lodge amenities - but our room was very comfortable. It was so much quieter and more relaxing than the touristy areas of Orlando. We will stay again- even if we are not golfing!

I have stayed at many resorts, but to be honest I haven't stayed at one where the positive service attitude was so prevalent.

The service was outstanding, and the most congenial and most accommodating resort associates I have ever experienced. From the Concierge to the bartender in the Members bar.

Always, with a what "Mr. Palmer" expects attitude.

The golf? Exceptional as expected. The resort is very accessible from I-4 in Orlando, Florida.

Summer rates are very reasonable.
