Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the place and proximity to attractions. Off I15 but nestled into surrounding hills. Several pools, gym and activities to do everyday of the week. Clean modern rooms with helpful staff. Part of our timeshare club, would stay again and recommend it.

We have been here five times and always find everything to be in top shape. The only drawback is that this resort is a long way from any store so a car is almost mandatory although a small food store and a restaurant are on the property. It has a top notch executive golf course. And of course there is... More

We stayed there because of a special offer, and thought it was a good opportunity to explore not only San Diego, but parts of Southern California that we had never visited. Because of these plans, we did not take advantage of the many activities and amenities the resort had to offer, but we could see that many retirees, families with... More

We loved this place. Went there with friends and family. We had enough room for two families in one 2 bdr condo. There were plenty of amenities and activities for the kids... and they loved the pool and Rec rooms. Highly recommend. :-)

This resort is top-notch is so many ways. The location was perfect for us, as we were able to drive to San Diego, cut over to Carlsbad, La Jolla and Oceanside, pop over to the casinos, even spend a day at Long Beach, all within an easy drive. However, why even leave the resort?!? The staff does a great job... More

We visited SanDiego, staying at the Welk Resort, as it was a half-hour ride to the city, offered numerous amenities, and was available for our our time-share swap. There were many positives about the resort that are worthy to note. The resort is quite large, with many units. Yet, you have a sense of privacy and coziness with the layout... More

We had been on a lengthy CA road trip and were ready to stay put for a few days, so my son declined the opportunity to go to Sea World or LEGOLAND, and just stayed at the resort and played in the pool and went on the waterslide and sat in the hot tub. It was not too crowded in... More

We own at Welk and stay there several times a year. Over the past couple of years the wifi availability has deteriorated. This trip we stayed in Melody Hill in the older 2-bedroom section of the resort and there was no wifi at all in the rooms. When we were there in October 2015 it was painfully slow (same section...

We stayed at Lawrence Welk resort in Escondido for the 2nd straight year on the first week in January. Another great stay!!! We checked in and got the rooms that we requested and were not pressured to see a time share presentation. The rooms are awesome......We stayed in the older part but the rooms are huge with plenty of room... More
