Recently spent a week here using two 2BR villas. Both were recently refurbished, well appointed, and very clean. Response to maintenance requests was prompt and satisfactory. Grounds were excellent; theater was fun. Recreation centers were well organized, stocked and staffed. Front desk staff was helpful and responsive.
Only downside is that roof replacement (tile) was being done right next to our villas and it was busy with construction vehicles and comotion throughout the day. Also, if you are NOTa points member, do not subject yourself to the very aggressive and almost rude sales presentation up on the mountain.
It was nice to return to L Welk after several years elsewhere. Five stars all around.

Have owned property all over the western US and this is by far one of our favorite spots. So much to do and the location is perfect. The golf course is perfect for a vacation spot, not too tough, not too easy and makes for a great afternoon or morning.

We stayed at the Welk this past week. Overall, it was a good experience. The resort is well kept. Pools are great for kids. Weather is great inland.
The positives: The two room unit we stayed in was spacious and was setup nicely. The two rooms were separated by the main living area so that my wife and I could watch TV in our room without having to worry about keeping the kids awake in the other room. The resort itself is very nice, has GREAT pools for the kids with slides that they really enjoyed. And being quite a bit inland from the coast ensures that you don't get socked in witht he marine layer every day and the temperatures were in the high 80's every day. We had bright sunshine every day. The resort is set in a valley so that views from the resort, specifically from the pools, are very nice.
The negatives: This place is really out in the middle of nowhere. It is a solid 10-15 drive just to get to a grocery store/convenient store. So, if you are like us and like to go out to dinner, this is a major hassle. I suppose if you bring/buy all your own food and mainly cook at the resort, this wouldn't be an issue, but it was for us. Also, if you want to go to the pools, it is very likely a drive/shuttle to get there. The best pool is the Mountain Springs, which for us was not walkable. The shuttle doesn't run nearly enough so it was a bit of a drag to have to drive to go to the pool. The Resort Villas where we stayed are clearly older -- there were gold accents in the bathroom that made me think of the 70's -- but it was clean...it was fine. Lastly, if you are a golfer like me, the golf onsite is a Par 3 course and an executive course. If you want a real golf course, you will again need to get driving. I played Twin Oaks -- 10 minutes or less away and it was fine.

We just returned from spending a week at the Lawrence Welk Resort. We do not own at this resort, it is in a good location if you want to go to the Wine area in Temecula, or travel to San Diego, about 45 minutes away. The staff put us in a older unit, since we do not own there. It was large, 2 bedroom, very old, new carpet and updated furniture. The freeway was very close, alot of noise. It could have been cleaner, dead bugs on the carpet, sliding door to patio very dirty, never cleaned, patio furniture dirty, showers had no water pressure. They did come back in and clean up a few things, not everything. The pool areas were nice, too cold in April to use. This is only a 5 Star Resort if you stay in the new units, that they are selling. The older units, need to be completly redone, I would rate about 3 Star. There are alot of older people here, who have bought alone time ago. You will need to cook here or travel about 30 minutes away to eat, they have a restaurant onsite, it was ok. The golf course was also ok, only a par 3, my husband was not impressed, took along time to complete, due to the older people playing. Just a note, that I did live a message with the General Manager on Staff, he never returned our call to see if everything was taken care of. No need to return to this resort.

Visited both Lawrence Welk Resort Villas and Lawrence Welk Villas on the Green ( separate lock out units). Had a small family reunion. Everything was 5 star quality. Service was great, lots of discounts, much for kids and adults to do.
Great patios, walking trails (paved), pools, pools, pools, clubhouse, you name it! Daily get to-gathers, and classes for all ages.
Owner Services was great, but don't hold your breath with RCI. You may talk to someone in Austria. If you go on the tour you may be offered bonus weeks with RCI, if you attend or buy, good luck!
We currently own 3 units. Make sure you have the weeks you want because a trade with RCI is almost impossible, again, Owner Services is wonderful.
Wish I had a dozen more.
