Visited for my birthday weekend and was really surprised the resort had a little town inside. Enjoyed the theatre watching the musical Evita. Yes it was a few years ago when I visited the resort but I can't wait to return especially since I've been passing it on the freeway lately. Our room was excellent, beautiful bathroom, quiet, and a... More

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful vacation at the Welk Resort Esondido. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews but I do not have one complaint.

The Villa we stayed at (145)was just updated with all new appliances, furniture, carpeting and tv's. We had the pool that was for only 18 and older, which was perfect. There are other Villas that have pools geared for the younger guests that include a slide and much more. They have daily and evening activities also a very nice restaurant... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a week at the Lawrence Welk Resort in Escondido, CA. This was our 3rd or forth visit. Each Villa is two bedrooms, full kitchen with all appliances and amenities.

We stayed one week as the guests of an owner. The rooms were recently updated and looked nice but there have been many years of painting over drywall that should be replaced. It's mostly older people and we felt out of place with our 2 year old. Plus, they REALLY want us to go to a time share presentation. No... More

My wife and I just spent a week at Welk Resort in a two bedroom Condo unit. The floor plan and unit were very spacious but I did feel the furniture was a little out dated.

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
