“Great time share”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Stayed the last week of October, great weather and most kids are in school.

The staff was really good, the grounds were well maintained, it is close to the I-5, but not too close. San Diego is just 30 minutes down the road. There is a major chain grocery store within a mile as well as other restaurants.

Get a two bedroom if you want a full kitchen; the one bdrm is only a cooktop and pint size fridge. Take advantage of the BBQ grills, they are nice and cleaned every night by the staff. Onsite laundry for free; soap and dryer sheets are a $1 each.

The negative on the rooms are; small bath/showers and poor Internet connection.

We had a first floor room, (recommended) but make sure you don't have little kids staying in the room above you or it will sound like a pack of elephants; luckily, they didn't stay but a few days.

Overall, I would stay again.

I traveled to the area to visit family. The Winner's Circle Resort
room was large (a suite), nice, clean and comfortable. The kitchen
was very well-equipped, which usually matters to me, although I did
not use it for this short a stay. Instead, the desk clerk lent me
their discount card to have breakfast across the street at Denny's.
Winner's Circle is conveniently placed to drive to Del Mar and San
Diego, which I did with family, or to take the bus (the desk clerk
printed me the schedule) to walk into Solana Beach. I would stay
again and recommend it to others.

My bf and I decided that we needed a place to stay for a weekend getaway, and found winners circle ! The first impression we had was the staff! They were so nice, and made us feel right at home! The rooms were great and had such personality.. we felt like we were home. Housekeeping definitely made the room spotless, and that was rare for us to see in any hotels we ever been to! If you're looking for a getaway that is family oriented, near the beach, race tracks, and local eateries, we definitely recommend it!

Not to mention the free wifi, and parking!!!!

This is a nice size resort for kids...the pool and grounds are nice. The rooms are older but very nice and clean...HEY your in Cali you do not spend much time in your room!!

It was a nice location too, close to the highway to go wherever in San Diego. Someone told me that this resort was founded by a movie star decades back...I forget who but its a fun place!!

Thank you for writing a review of Winners Circle Resort. We are definitely a family friendly resort; kids love the ping-pong table, children's pool, and swimming pool. We are working on remodeling all of our rooms over the next few years, but I'd like to thank you for noting how clean the older units are. We hope you and your family can visit us again soon!

We are just back from one week at the Winners Circle Resort.
We enjoyed the updated unit with all the amenities of home, the kitchenette offered everything you need. The heated pool, hot tub and gas grilles are a great plus, and the free use of the tennis club was an unexpected feature we loved.
The location is great, close to San Diego, the beaches, shopping and good restaurants.
The only con for us was that is can get loud at the pool area with a lot of kids and their parents enjoying their time without considering that some adults would like to relax.
Other than that we will definitely be back.
