This was my first stay at the Lodge and OMG.. i will stay no other place from now on when in Orlando! The location was perfect. It is beautiful, relaxing and sits in a lovely hidden neighborhood with close access to amazing restaurants. Not to mention the restaurant onsite was delicious and not over priced. I want to keep this... More

For the second straight year, we spent a week at this property that's just far away enough from the tourist "madness", but close enough to many good restaurants (including the one on property). It's hard to beat the value (two rooms.. four people... less than 300/nt including tax). No this isn't the fanciest place, but as the headline suggests, we... More

We were staying in a "chain" motel for a few days which was at occupancy with a "wild crowd" and decided to seek out an alternative. We found Bay Hill Lodge and we were so glad we did. This place has been upgraded and modernized recently but still exudes class and craftsmanship. The staff is proud to be affiliated with... More

Amazing staff...Beautiful Room...Great Food. Clean, beautiful pool. The Bay Hill Golf Resort was one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed. Lots of History on the walls! Every hotel should strive to be like Mr. Palmer's property!

My family and I were looking for a place to stay close to Universal Studios as we had tickets for the Blue Man group. We hit the jackpot when we found this hotel. Less than fifteen minutes away from Universal, this hotel was clean and quite luxurious. The hotel rooms very much had a Tommy Bahama feel about them and... More

If you like golf and have followed Arnold Palmer for years like I have, then this is the place to stay, play and dine. We got to eat lunch with Arnold twice, although Arnold chose to sit at another table. The lodge is a great facility with very helpful and attentive staff. Very quiet rooms, probably due to no children... More

Last month I spent 3 days at Bay Hill while attending a meeting at a huge high rise hotel 4 miles away. The location is quiet and beautiful. I planned on eating at several restaurants but found the food and service to be excellent; so I took all my meals there. Request a second floor room overlooking the golf course.... More
