A large resort a few miles north of Escondido. We stayed in a one bedroon apartment in the Villas on the Green on an exchange through RCI. I was disappointed as the only view of the golf course was through the trees from our bedroom window.. The unit itself was fine. I would not say it was Gold Crown standards.... More

Well we were referred by my mother who is an owner to stay and listen to the presentation. So we went on a Thursday checked in at 4:15 p.m. and we were the only ones checking in. It was a breeze! Got our parking permit and drove up to our room which was on the third floor. The room was... More

I was invited to attend the tour for the vacation product as I have read many others have done too. However, I must tell you I had a very different experience with the whole thing. I think you have to be realistic when participating in offers like this and I must say my expectations were exceeded. Below I have listed... More

After reading the other reviews on this website we were nervous about visiting the Welk Resort in Escondidio. Yes, we got lured into the time share tour by the offers of free gifts, but other reviewers had us fearing the worst - we were worried we wouldn't receive what we were promised and that we would have trouble getting our...

We enjoyed our stay at the resort and bought a time share. From there on it has been a bunch of crep. We have tried to get the deal completed since Dec and according to the people we have been working with it was to be completed by the end of Feb 2010. IT IS NOW THE END OF AUGUST... More

We stayed at the Welk Resort for the first week in July. It is a beautiful and well maintained resort. Everything is very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed at the Villas on the Greens. We had a one bedroom ground floor unit. It was very nice for our family of four. The kitchen was just right for... More

"Presentation" was supposed to be 90 minutes, was over 3 hours. New 2-bedroom room we looked at was really nice and had nice view. Salesman was friendly, easy going, but loaded with the typical salesman tactics (find common bond early, tell you how he's a veteran salesman so he can get you more, always say "very good question" every time...

First of all this 90 minute tour took over 3 hours and it's in the middle of no where. We repeatedly declined to buy their $17k+ high pressure sell. Then they turned rude and blamed us for wasting their time. We tried to leave!!! Stay clear of this place unless you have time to waste.

In August 2010, my family (children 3 & 5) stayed at the Lawrence Welk resort. We went there as part of a time share presentation package. Let me start off with the presentation, as mentioned in previous reviews it was definitely high pressure sales. Our salesman was nice, but did not want to take no for an answer. But after... More

We spent a week at Welk’s Mountain Springs villas during August 2010, and it was great! Everything was almost perfect. Villas are new (build in 2009), very clean, shower had very good pressure, jacuzzi tub was nice, mattress, blankets and pillows were very comfortable. I brought my own pillow and blanket and it turned out I didn’t need them. Noise... More
