This is either my 3rd or 4th Welk Review (obviously we like the place because we keep returning).
We stayed at the Welk over the holiday weekend. The first two nights were in the mountain villas (3835) and the third night was in the resort villas (the original ones; Gigi 195). Both were great. We had friends meet us for the third night and they seemed to enjoy the resort as well.
The resort villas have been updated -- bathrooms look great now, and the the kitchen counters are awesome. The wallpaper is the same (i think), as are the kitchen lights, table, and chairs. The room does look updated though.
There was a slight mishap with our reservations on the day of check-in, but the staff was very nice (although a bit frazzled and busy) and we got everything sorted out. Just took a little while but it wasn't a problem.
