The rooms we were assigned were down-right worn-out and dirty. The maids had failed to stock the room with TP, Hand soap, sponge, etc. There were ants in the room...massive number of ants along with black widows in my bed nonetheless. The pull out bed may as well be a sheet on top of steel girds. The bed spread was... More

We came here to visit my fiances parents who were spending the week at the Welk Resort as part of a time share exchange. We were under the impression that we were visiting San Diego. In actuality the Welk Resort is far away (45 mins in no traffic) from San Diego, in a world of its own really. The rooms... More

We spent a week at the Welk Resort in Escondido. We picked this resort on an exchange because the resorts we wanted in Carlsbad were not available. We wanted something between Anaheim (Disneyland) and San Diego. The drive to San Diego - in good traffic - was about 35-40 minutes. The drive to Disneyland - in good traffic - was... More

We traded a time share week through Interval. We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa and it was very comfortable. We had a unit with a full kitchen, livingroom, bathroom and bedroom with a nice balcony off the livingroom/bedroom. The furnishings were a little dated - the carpet should really be replaced - but it was very clean and comfortable.... More

Resort very well maintained. Units clean and ready to enjoy including all necessary items for cooking full meals. Need more items--just call housekeeping and they will be glad to help you.Have enjoyed this facility since 1988. The Villas are more suited for a family because of the two separate bedroom areas and one common kitchen. For two families (parents and... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa with our friends. We both have two girls. The accomodations were great. The decor is a bit old but it works. (I have heard there are remodeled units) We loved having the kitchen especially having the little ones. But I must say having the pizza hut right on the premises was really convenient... More

On a recent family trip we had a wonderful stay at the Welk Resort in Escondido. We were greeted with an amazing gift basket in our room and fun toys for the kids. The unit was beautifully clean and we found the entire staff to be delightful! Choosing this resort helped make our family vacation so special!

The Welk resort was absolutley amazing from the quality of the upgraded 2 bedroom villas they have now to all the activities and amenities they have for the couple or large family. Our family had an amazing time utilizing all the pools and clubhouses so our kids could have so much fun. The Welk resort is about 30-40 minutes away... More

We stayed in a 2BR villa that was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed. The kitchen had a toaster, coffee maker, utensils, dishwasher, knives, plates, bowls, kitchen towels, paper towels, soap, sponge, etc. They have daily activities, 2 nice golf courses, tennis, ping-pong, pool tables, and a few nice pools. You can just park your car and relax. The... More

L.Welk let us down. Got there and had a terrible 1BR unit that was difficult to access; had to go up a steep flight of stairs, then back down to street level to get to the door in a "hole;" the perfect place for a mugger to trap you. Anyone with mobility, cardiac, or pulmonary issues will have a hard... More
