If you're looking for somewhere special to stay and play golf, take a look at six hotels recommended by AAA Inspectors.
Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina
AAA Inspector 55: This relaxed waterfront resort has limitless activities-your family will never be bored.
This sprawling golf resort sits on the banks of the Choptank River and provides luxurious, spacious public areas, numerous dining options, extensive meeting space and recreational facilities. At the property's small beach many water sports are offered, ranging from boat rentals to kayaks and more. There also are three on-site pools with many features, including a waterslide and daily poolside activities.
AAA Inspector 373: Seeing all the children enjoying the splash pad, riding bicycles or playing croquet convinced me this is a great place to create family memories.
On Mobile Bay, the resort's public areas blend contemporary style with bygone era elegance, sprinkled with historical mementos. Landscape displays on the spacious 550-acre grounds change seasonally. The original structure that was built in the 1800s has long been gone from fire, but the area is rich with history. For example, a Civil War hospital was once located on the grounds. An afternoon tea and a military commemorative firing of the cannon are long-time traditions conducted daily.
AAA Inspector 66: This is one of my family's favorite resorts because it is set among giant oaks that separate the pools, the golf course and the lazy river.
Wood-trimmed porches and walls of regional limestone distinguish this sprawling oak-studded resort, which is known for its ramblin' lazy river floating ride. The beautiful rooms are refined. The suites are spectacular, some offering large and furnished balconies.
AAA Inspector 76: The beach, boutique shops, various swimming pools, a state-of-the-art game center and many restaurants provide myriad options for entertainment.
Serenely set on the Gulf of Mexico, this property is split between 2 towers and offers many on-site amenities. All rooms have a balcony or patio, plus streaming TVs and comfortable beds. Their Paradise by Sirene Suites tower is adults-only, with its own pool, complimentary breakfast and beach butler service.
AAA Inspector 31: When traveling with kids, I prefer the ground floor rooms as most have an external door leading straight to the beach or grassy play areas.
This waterfront resort is located close to the Canadian border and is set on 1,100 acres amid wildlife and golf courses. The hotel's restaurant, lounge and quiet reading room all overlook the water. Don't expect to walk on a sandy beach; you won't find one here. Instead, there is a paved walkway that goes on for miles. Many guest rooms have patios and water views.
