We go every year when the fair is going on so we can walk to it. We walk to Del Mar beach with chairs that we can put on our back and they have a little cooler attached. It really isn't much of a walk. We can walk to whole foods market, a great italian restaurant or thai and upscale...

The unit was beautiful, the bed and the sofa sleeper were very comfortable. The unit was well maintained besides a few minor things. I reported that out refrigerator was pretty loud when the motor ran. Also, the 2 nonstick skillets were pretty scratched up. The staff replaced them with no problem. The biggest issue I had with the place was...

Macomb, Michigan
Reviewed 29 July 2016

Loved almost everything about it except for the ants - everywhere in the room (245). Pool and hot tub were great. Having two showers is such a time saver. Cooking in the condo and keeping groceries in the condo is tricky because of the ant problem. All the food had to be stored in the refrigerator.

My husband and I booked a spontaneous excursion to attend the Del Mar Horse Races. We found Winners Circle to stay for the night and headed down a bit early since the traffic can be terrible on the 405 south. We arrived around 2 PM , grabbed some lunch and then hoped to check into our room a little early...

Thank you for taking the time to review Winners Circle Resort. We do allow guests to check in early, if the unit is ready. If the unit isn't ready, then it might not be ready until 4pm, our scheduled check-in time. We are primarily a timeshare resort. This means all of our rooms turn over on the same day--either Friday...

This is a timeshare hotel. Our one bedroom unit with 2 bathrooms was nicely furnished and had an efficiently designed small kitchen with oven. It was air-conditioned and had an elevator. We were on the back of the hotel facing a hill. Included was the use of washers and dryers--only detergent for sale. Our grandchildren greatly enjoyed the pool and...

Wasn't expecting a lot but this place turned out to be a nice surprise. We rented from a time-share owner and everything went very smoothly. Check-in was simple, the grounds looked beautiful and staff were all very nice. The room was on the second floor, street side but quiet enough. Great wi-fi in room. Didn't use the pool or rec...

We booked a room here to visit some friends that had moved into the area on our way to a different location in San Diego. What a great find! I am very picky about hotels and was apprehensive about booking at a place that I had never heard of (not a chain). You can tell that the building is a...

We stayed in a studio suite; everything was fine and had a well-equipped kitchen which we didn't use. If we had stayed longer I would have wanted a bigger room but this was fine for the night.

I recently spent 1 week in a 1 bedroom condo at the resort. The place was spotless clean and well-equipped with a full kithchen, utensils, etc. 2 full baths were a real treat.
