Treated like royalty!!

We initially chose the Bay Hill because of its' connection to Arnold Palmer and the renowned golf course. We did see Mr. Palmer at dinner (a thrill). Unfortunately, the Bay Hill Invitational Golf Tournament ended the day we arrived, so the course was closed in order to take down grandstands, etc.. That was a disappointment. However we walked the course. which was an aesthetically pleasing experience. Any golfer would appreciate the challenging design and the exceptional condition of fairways, bunkers and greens. The staff greeted and treated us as if we were family. We stayed in the Lodge in a room with a king size bed. Each room had a small balcony that overlooked the golf course. Sunrise was beautiful! The rooms were quiet and well appointed. We usually stay in less lavish surroundings but with the discount we got through Obitz we would go definitely go back. We found no reason to leave the grounds once we arrived because of the ample opportunities for exercise(tennis, fitness facility, pool) and fine dining available. My most relaxing experience was a therapeutic massage--the very best I've ever had. We'll be back!

There is a poolside cafe with a menu every bit as tempting as the main dining room. Dining prices were very reasonable in each of the resort's restaurants.

Quiet pleasant stay

Our experience was very good. We liked the staff, their professional behavior and friendliness. We also liked the fact that the rooms are practical and pleasant. Grounds were well kept and tasteful. The hotel does not charge a resort fee or any other hidden fees commonly charged upon arrival at hotels in Orlando. Cleanliness was better than most American hotels. For golf and other forms of exercise this is an excellent place to stay. It is also close to Disney, various shopping venues and restaurants.

Great Service

The room was immaculate. The service staff all was extremely friendly. Very Cozy and quiant away from the hustle and bustle of Disney; but still only a short drive away from Mickey as well! We would definitely go here again!

Great place, quiet, relaxing, and comfortable!

We were very pleased with our entire stay. After long hot days in big crowds it was very nice to come back to a place that felt like home sweet home! We highly recommend it to all. You don't need to be a golfer to enjoy all the other aspects of this great hidden jewel of a resort!

Perfect Getaway

The lodge was a perfect getaway for my wife and me. Exquisite room and appointments. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Outstanding location for the golf or tennis enthusiast, but also great for just a nice quite getaway. Easy drive to local attractions.

Hidden Gem

This resort/hotel is a wonderful place to stay for business to keep away from the touristy areas of Orlando. There are only 72 rooms so it is nice and quiet. If you are arriving after dark, make sure you have a GPS as the venue has no lit signs and the area is quite dark.

Great place, great value

It was a great experience. The staff was friendly. The room was very comfortable and clean. The surroundings were quiet, much better than a hotel nearer to the convention center.
