We've stayed at the Lawrence Welk resort in Escondido 4 times, most recently in September 2014. We've stayed in the oldest buildings (which I prefer because they are updated and HUGE) and we've also stayed in the Villas on the Green units. Those are nice as well. We always have a great time here. The golf course is fun to... More

Check in was quick and pleasant. We called the resort with a request for room location a week prior to arrival. All requests were granted. We stayed on Melody Hill, the only adult pool in the resort. Upon arrival we were informed that the pool and rec center were closed for major construction. The weather was a little cool so... More

Holy cow, you will be promised $100.00 credit for attending a "90-minute golf cart tour of the property (timeshare presentation). Hmm. A golf cart tour of the property doesn't sound so bad. Well.... we didn't even set foot on the golf cart. Got to talk vacations (which felt like some sort of therapy session) for 2 hours, then we were... More

Our second visit to this resort - we are normally \Marriott owners but have swapped out here twice now. |We were given a nice one bedroom, overlooking the golf course - Turnberry building up on top - no noise at all. Lovely pool areas scattered through the resort - we prefer the one at the highest point in the afternoons-... More

Ours was a multiple-family in-law/sibling/children type of vacation. We had three adjacent suites up in the Broadway Hills section, with a view of the 9th hole of the golf course. Nobody in our group was interested much in golf. While I liked the layout of the suites for the family use, the service when asking for extra towels, proper-fitting sheets... More

The resort is beautiful, tons of activities for everyone... definitely recommend. It is a ways from the city, so if you plan to go downtown or to Sea World, you will definitely need to rent a car. They have a few tours that go to Hollywood, etc but to really see everything you need a car in San Diego. There... More

The pictures and description make this sound fantastic. Add to it the Lawrence Welk appeal, and it would have appeared we scored fantastico. The fact is, the place is over rated and apparently overbooked. I had to stand in line at check in for over an hour since the line was long and they couldn't find my reservation. The girl... More

Love the WELK resort in Escondido. This year, we were greeted to a newly furnished unit. Tasteful and comfortable in earth tones, it made the stay very pleasant. Not sure if it's a new policy or not but we were not given the time share sell. Definitely made it that much more stress free. Wonderful resort activities as usual and... More

It is a great resort with a lot of amenities. Think of it as home away from home but if you think anybody would pamper you and take care of there, it won't happen. Overall, we enjoyed our last three stays and we would go back but learn to accept below 3 star customer services.
