Welk Resorts San Diego
Good but not Great
The accommodation was good, a drive from anywhere, unless you like golf that is. Spacious apartments and well equipped but let down by poor / slow wifi connections. Watch out for the timeshare sell. You arrive and they show a great interest in you and are very charming....but then they are trying to get you to have a tour of the site in exchange for tickets of your choice. Once they realise there isn't a sell, the lights go out. That's a shame as the resort is nice but elderly in outlook and on the pricey side for what you get. It's a good drive to San Diego and even longer one to LA, but that said you could be at the beech in 20 mins...but do pick them carefully as they are all very different. The place is safe, secure and a good staging point to see that part of California and a nice wine region too.

Hotel facilities were good. Didn't really appreciate the hard sell upon check in to attend the Time Share presentation given we live 7000 miles away! We attended and declined but took 3 hours of our holiday. Our 2 bed suite was very roomy and comfortable but we didn't realise until we left that you have to pay extra to get the suite serviced which isn't ideal given we were staying for 5 days. Also parking outside our suite was difficult and they should consider one allocated parking spot for each suite at peak times. All of that said, we had a very enjoyable stay.

we met 4 others that came from out of town to see us, visit was ok, we eat out in San Marcos, the food at resort is to high and not that good, it is beautiful greens, and stay was ok, no maid service

We had heard amazing things about the Welk but were a bit disappointed. The room felt cramped and wasn't super clean. We tried to get housekeeping to come a day early (they only come 1x/week) but were met with resistance. When they did come, they didn't change the sheets. The staff at the coffee shop weren't super friendly. Loved the pool and splash pad though they were always super crowded. There was a Spring Fling event happening during our stay which we were disappointed to learn was ticketed. It only went until 8 and didn't seem worth it since we got there at 7pm. oh, and the wireless was barely functioning.
