The people of Bay Hill are fabulous. They could not do enough for the 7 of us. The course is in excellent shape. The dinners were all at the resort with variety that lasted days. The history of Mr. Palmer's life is on every wall of the resort. You cannot get enough!! Thanks

Our room was on the first floor facing the Golf Course (which was gorgeous). We would definitely stay again. I noticed a lot of people mentioning this place is dated and old. I found it quiet and clean which is a main attraction for me. We came to Orlando for a surprise 90th Birthday Party for my Grandma. Yes! She...

A little dated but nice to be off the strip . Feels a little 70's but the price is very reasonable, service very good and amenities are adequate. Would stay again when next in town. Suggest ask for 1st floor rooms each have small balconies and more privacy then the ground floor rooms.

I booked a night here in hopes of being able to play the championship course, which by the stroke of a cancellation I was able to do, and won't forget. Check in was smooth, and you'll be given a card that acts as your ticket to pay anywhere on the grounds. They will accept cash but not credit. Only the...

Thank you for your comments, we try hard to make our guests feel at home. With regard to cash vs credit, I'd like to clarify something ... We are a no cash resort.. so when someone checks-in, you provide your credit card at the front desk, we in turn provide you with a "club membership card" which you use at...

The rooms a very masculine. Very nice linens and toiletries. Must take your hat off when inside. Very close to Orange County Convention Center, but away from the tourist mess. Lots of golf history on the walls, and if you can get out for a round on this host course to the Arnold Palmer Invitational it will make your trip.

I booked a room and tee time. We are trying to cancel and over the course of a few weeks I have called and left a VM and sent emails, no response. How do you run a hotel like this? It seems like they operate is like Vermont B&B without the responsive service. After this experience I won't book a...

You need to cancel with and through the company that you made the reservation with. On your confirmation there is contact information, email address, etc. for you to call if you have any questions, changes or even cancellations.. Our phone 407-876-2429 is answered 24/7 by a person so you will never get voice mail... Not sure what happened for you,...

My wife and I enjoyed a two-day, one night stay at Bay Hill Resort as both the lodge and the golf course clearly exceeded our expectations. I could certainly see us coming back next time for 3-4 days so we can also use the facilities to their fullest capacity. Thanks again Arnie for creating this wonderful area and you will...
