Although this is a timeshare owner's resort, it may be that non timeshare owners also can go there is they can afford the rental cost. This resort is around 43 miles from San Diego airport and fairly easy to get to especially if you have a GPS system. You will need this to get out from the airport through the... More

I've stayed at numerous time shares and this one came well recommended from family. I however did not have a great experience. Check in time is 4PM and that seems awful late. I arrived early after a very long drive, only to find out the room wasn't ready. Other hotels this doesn't ever seem to be an issue. The room... More

Went to see Oklahoma musical and had a great lunch there. Jud is very creepy but the musical was very good. Plan on 2+ hours to see - not including a meal. Easy parking and great seats. Again worth seeing. Weather was great, temperature just right.

When we booked the Welk Resort we really weren't sure what we would get. Lawrence Welk started this resort in the '80s. We thought that it would be tired, but not a chance. This place is as up to date and as current as it gets with the new Mountain View units just recently opened. There are 700 suites in... More

This resort is nice. It really does feel like you are in some remote location because of the mountain views. I am torn by this resort because the grounds are really beautiful but nothing is convenient. We stayed in two different villas. The first one was absolutely perfect and I completely recommend the Mountain View rooms if you do stay.... More

We have been very pleased with our stay! Rooms are modern. Lot to do on site with the marketplace Monday, fiesta Tuesday, Hawaiian night Wednesday, the musical theater (Oklahoma was running when we were here), not to mention the pools, workout facilities, game rooms, etc. There's lots to do within 15-30min of the resort with San Diego to the west...

My husband and I recently joined the Welk Resort and LOVE it! We have twin boys who are one. The pool area/water activity playground is perfect for our kids to run and around and get tired while my husband and I sit back and watch in a beautiful environment. Everything you need is there and NOT over prices like most... More

The Welk Resort is a 45 minute drive north of San Diego. We were offered a complimentary night at the resort for going through a timeshare presentation. We enjoyed our stay at he resort. My daughters loved the pool and waterslides. We were very disappointed that we were not allowed to bring food or drinks to the pool. We ran... More

We stayed the week prior to Labor day in the Mountain Villas. Great View, Wonderful one bedroom with washer/dryer unit. A veranda that had comfortable rocking chairs, that even our guest commented on. The View was great and yes you can hear in the distance the sounds coming from the I-15S. However, it is not noticeable when the doors or... More
