"Had to wait on our check in...."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 06, 2019 NEW
So I would advise not checking in until around 6 because there is a good chance this Time of the year you will have to wait a few hours for your Check-In. We waited 2 hours before we could get into our room, as they were cleaning it. Our neighbors at the lodge said they also had to wait 2 hours and I had seen that on a previous review as well. We had a one room suite at the lodge. It was nice overall but the fact that the manager never called us back to make things right made me rate this 4 stars instead of 5. Room was nice however and I liked that the bedroom was separate/had a door from the living area.

We loved it!! So much room and beautiful bathrooms and kitchens. No one tried to sell us anything and we were given the cleaning schedule upon check in. Having laundry was a plus for our family. Property was very clean and centrally located.

"The Welk resort (Lodges at Timber Ridge) VERY mixed review."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 13, 2019
Rented a “time share” unit with 2 bedrooms, one of which was an adjoining lock off unit. The unit itself was very nice, with moderately upper end furnishings. Exactly what I would expect at a resort. The unit and outside areas were very clean. Laundry soap, dish detergent, were supplied. Comfortable beds, with good linens and an abundance of pillows. Both units had stacked washers and dryers, covered decks, kitchens, and full sized appliances. Bathrooms are larger. Unit layout and the accommodations were very good. There was plenty of parking. The overall vibe of the property as a whole, is an entirely different story. Our cost for 3 nights was over $1800. Not a fortune, but at that price-point we don’t expect to deal with major annoyances. Problem #1. Check in is 4:00 pm. We were unable to get into our rooms until after 5:30, and that was after 2 calls, and a return trip to the front desk. Problem #2. No, I don’t want to buy a time share. No, I was not/am not a Lawrence Welk fan, and no- I don’t care if his son is the CEO. Problem #3 We expected a relaxing afternoon at the pool. What we got was Gina. The activities director, and somebody gave her a really loud microphone. I mean REALLY LOUD. As in, if you were having a conversation with the person next to you, it had to stop because you couldn’t hear each other. From her table in the splashatorium, we heard from her about every 20 minutes, most of the afternoon. When she wasn’t advertising activities, she was publicly shaming kids in the pool area for infractions, issuing warnings, and informing everyone within 1/2 mile that she was in-charge, informing guests that security would be at the top of the slide to enforce, the rules, and that she had the authority to suspend privileges. Yes, shaming kids. Calling them out by the color of their swimsuit or clothing. At one point, someone’s drink order was delivered to the pool area. She called their names to pick up their drinks and announce the types of alcoholic beverages that they ordered. The whole pool experience is enough of a reason for us to not ever stay here again. Also, I’m not sure what it says on the website, but coolers are NOT allowed in the pool area. In comparison to other resorts, where you can seamlessly order food and drinks poolside, and waiters deliver, this system seemed clunky. Both the food and alcoholic beverages seemed to come from another section of the property. Towels were available poolside. When you check in, you are given wristbands that are supposed to be worn in the pool area. We never saw anyone wearing one, which led us to wonder how many of the pool occupants were actually resort guests. Problem #4 No maid service until you have been onsite for several days. This is addressed on the website.
