We stayed one week as the guests of an owner. The rooms were recently updated and looked nice but there have been many years of painting over drywall that should be replaced. It's mostly older people and we felt out of place with our 2 year old. Plus, they REALLY want us to go to a time share presentation. No...

My wife and I just spent a week at Welk Resort in a two bedroom Condo unit. The floor plan and unit were very spacious but I did feel the furniture was a little out dated. The beds were very comfortable with two lovely large bathrooms. My only problem with the resort at the time of our stay was that...

We came here with my parents and kids using my parents timeshare points.

This is a nice place to visit for a week with the family to keep all members of the family busy if they want to be. Everyone was...

I've stayed at the Welk Resort in Escondido on several occasions. The rooms (condos) are spacious, well-appointed, modern, and clean. If you get an upper level room, the views of the surrounding rock-strewn hills or the golf course are spectacular! Each unit I've stayed in has a nice deck to hang out on and they have BBQ grills at various...

This was my third stay at this resort as a guest. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but the scenery is beautiful. There is so much land here and I feel the property is very much underutilized. If you're not into golf or under the age of 65, that eliminates about 90% of the activities available to you....

Second time staying at Welk's Resort in Escondido. 2 bedroom villa is big and clean. Always a great view and very quiet. Nice new lounge chair on balcony. Pools clean. Loved the adult only pool. Grounds are kept very nice. Already booking my next stay here since it's a wonderful stay. Make sure to go to Harrah's Casino nearby.
