Very, very nice lodging. Golf course is perfect for seniors at about 4500 yards. The golf course for an executive course is maintained extremely well. Very nice scenery and a great course for couples. You do not have to stay at the resort to play golf there.

Our family visits the Welk Resort, San Diego, for a full week every July. We acquire four villas and spend half of our time at the resort and half visiting other attractions from San Diego to Temecula, farther north. The resort is ideal for families with sufficient attractions at the resort and in the general area to make us plan...

We traded our time share through Interval International for a one-bedroom at Welk Resorts in Escondido, CA. We were very impressed with the entire complex--with all its pools, clubhouses, golf course, top-notch fitness center, theatre, and much more. We went in May so there weren't large numbers of school-age kids. However, it would be a great place to bring a...

OK, really disappointed we were placed in a regular one bedroom but I could have lived with that but to walk to the unit and find out that it's in the basement with barely any light and no view was extremely disappointing. I figured I would check out the pool area to see if that was at least worth coming...

We attended a wedding near by and stayed at the Welk's Resort. Stayed at the Mountain Villas overlooking the pool area. Great one bedroom, easy check in and if you have kids lots to do at the pool. We have also stayed in a two bedroom when we had children with us and the Mountain Villas are close to the...

We had a number of bad experiences at the Welk Resort. We entered the hotel room and could not figure out how to adjust the thermostat. The thermostat had a message "room unoccupied.' We fiddled with the device for a while to see if we could change the setting to "occupied" but failed. If it is so difficult to run...
