I've stayed at the Welk Resort in Escondido on several occasions. The rooms (condos) are spacious, well-appointed, modern, and clean. If you get an upper level room, the views of the surrounding rock-strewn hills or the golf course are spectacular! Each unit I've stayed in has a nice deck to hang out on and they have BBQ grills at various... More

We arrived 3 days ago and where should I start? The master tub and entire bathroom were nasty with black streaks in the tub along with multiple different hair's in and around the tub. I know this because I tried to clean the tub myself and discovered dry water spots along with a variety of different hair's along the top... More

On the night we arrived the room we were given stunk like someone had just fried a nice batch of fried fish. The stove was greasy as heck and the coffee table was dirty. Went down to the front desk to complain and was told they were booked and no other rooms where available and they could not move us,... More

We are non-golfers so this was not the attraction for us. Nice villas - we had a full size one bedroom that was well maintained, laid out well, nice balcony/patio off the living room and bedroom, comfortable furniture and bed, adequate equipment supplies in kitchen. They do a mid week cleaning and replacing of towels and supplies. We arrived early... More

This was my third stay at this resort as a guest. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but the scenery is beautiful. There is so much land here and I feel the property is very much underutilized. If you're not into golf or under the age of 65, that eliminates about 90% of the activities available to you.... More

Second time staying at Welk's Resort in Escondido. 2 bedroom villa is big and clean. Always a great view and very quiet. Nice new lounge chair on balcony. Pools clean. Loved the adult only pool. Grounds are kept very nice. Already booking my next stay here since it's a wonderful stay. Make sure to go to Harrah's Casino nearby.

We have stayed at the Welk Resort in Escondido several times, with our most recent stay being October 2014. The condos themselves are wonderful. We had a first floor room with large patio area, nice living room with fireplace; well equipped kitchen, and comfortable one bedroom king bed room. The bathrooms are nice here (although our shower door did not... More

We planned a trip to the Welk resort with our two little kids and my mother in law, hoping for a family friendly "stay cation". Many little things went wrong that added up to a very disappointing trip 1. Happy hour at the Boulder springs rec center couldn't locate their plastics cups so they were unable to serve beverages for... More

I would like to start with the positives. The resort is very well maintained, and if you are going for golf, swimming, games, etc., it is great. Our 1 bedroom unit was quite large and very well-equipped. The furniture was comfortable, bathroom large, bed comfortable, etc. The towels and bedding are good. The balcony was also quite large, and everything... More

The Welk Resort in Escondido has it all! Whether you choose to be busy all day, or just want some good old R&R, the Welk Resort has it. The 18 hole golf course is magnificent, the 8 pools are beautiful and the grounds are impeccable. The villas are modern, well-appointed and up to date. The staff (especially Brittany, an operator)...
