adult weekend away from kids

Didnt realize Bay Hill was so old. It was OK but needs updating. Wife and I had a beer and glass of wine at the bar. 20$ for 2 drinks. Not that special to charge like that. I would go again but only to play golf.

Respect the King.

The Club and Lodge is a golfer's Paradise. Steep in Tradition. We had an issue with our first room and the staff resolved to our satisfaction the next morning.

Average rooms, no special amenities

Got away to Florida to golf but too overpriced to golf at Bay Hill, went to other semi-private courses in the area which were wonderful! and reasonably priced! Dining and golf is was not included in package. Never ate there the entire time. Nothing bad but yet nothing special.

Good Hotel, Great location

Overall, this is a good hotel. However, we were without power till 11:30 the first night, no fault of the hotel, but at checkout they were un-willing to do anything to compensate us for the inconvenience. The manager said they would "try" to give me 10% off that nights stay, but so far nothing. Just left a bad taste in my mouth. Other hotels have been much more accommodating, this hotel was not.

Clean and updated.

We stayed at this hotel for one night because we found a good rate. Honestly, we did not stay here because of the golf course; we had plans to visit Disney. The rooms were very clean and updated. The bed was not very comfortable. The front desk quickly changed our room from a double to a king sized bed after we checked in. The staff were friendly. We ate breakfast in the restaurant; the meal was fairly priced and of decent quality. The hotel is very quiet and in a well manicured area of Orlando called Bay Village. We would stay there again even though we don't play golf.

Went on business, but a great family getaway!

Went on business with my husband, two adult sons and one daughter in law. Stayed in a two bedroom house on the fairway. Beautiful view! Very relaxing. The house design is very eclectic. Probably from the 60's with today upgrades (flooring, carpets kitchen appliances and master bedroom bathroom). We all enjoyed the house which is quite spacious. We didn't really use the full kitchen or hang out as much as we would have liked to. We would like to come back with the grandchildren. It's close to Universal Studios, a lot of nice restaurants and a Whole Foods Store. The Club House and restaurant (good waffles) are quite nice! The service is also quite good. My husband and sons played golf and that was expensive but a lot of fun. They saw Mr. Palmer and he kindly signed some golf balls for them.
