Overall you need to visit Bayhill for its connections with Arnold Palmer and its history. As a hotel experience its ok but nothing that special. As many have said, the lodge / rooms are dated but clean. We did not eat on site but you need to expect to pay big prices for the privilege of benign there i.e we paid $15 for a glass of red wine in the bar !!! bears $6 - $7 which is a little better. In summary though, the building is full of history and special memorabilia so is worth a visit.
