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.

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!

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
