"Christmas Getaway"
January 2020
The hotel and front desk staff were wonderful. The activities staff...not so wonderful. We attended several scheduled events only to find that the person in charge of the event made a decision not to have the event. We were told things like there was too many kids. I thought the reason to offer the event was to draw the kids to it. In the game room we asked for controllers for the video games the attendant half way pointed and said look over there. There was no controllers and all the board games had missing pieces. We love the Welks and have always loved taking our Christmas break trip there. This time I left a little disappointed. The breakfast buffet never disappoints!!

"Noisy"
August 2019
To start with the beds are not queen size they are an oversized full. The noise above are room every night was like a Hurd if elephants till 1 or 2 am. But on a good note it was a very nice place for kids. The pool and slide was very nice. My granddaughter loved the activities at the pool but please make sure you take plenty of money with you because everything will cost you. The prices could be a little lower for the activities but still fun for the kids. The room we stayed in was not very clean the carpet was very worn and old.

"Good for children"
June 2019
Although it would be a good place for kids, the employees tended to not be so friendly, the rooms had a moldy smell and mold could be seen in the bathrooms. I had two different rooms on two different floors and both had the same problems

"Sadly disappointed"
December 2018
Although the staff was friendly and professional, I was sadly disappointed in the accommodations. The rooms were at best, mediocre. Not what I would expect after reading the descriptions on the Welk website and paying their rates. Even more frustrating was not having any hot water for a shower! After Letting the water “run until the water gets hot”, as told to do so by a gentleman at the front desk, an hour later the water was still cold and I no longer had the time to shower before our reserved dinner show. Needless to say, we won’t be back!

"Excellent Adventure!!!"
August 2018
This was my first time planning my family vacation. Everything worked perfectly! We had no issues at all. We got there, checked in, and they put us in a room right next to my aunt who was just passing through. The rooms were a tad on the smaller side, but who really spends a lot time in their room anyway? There is so much to do at the hotel! There is a list of events everywhere to make sure you don't miss a thing. The Splashatorium is pretty awesome, even for us adults! There is a smaller pool on the backside of the hotel too, which was usually less crowded and great for family wading. The rooms were clean, however, the beds weren't the most comfortable, but we all know nothing compares to our own! The breakfast buffet is great! Definitely worth the cost. Fill up early and spend less later! I would totally recommend this resort and we will stay there again for sure! P.S. If address the concierge regarding the timeshare mumbo jumbo upfront, they won't bother you again ;)

"Family vacation at Welks"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed July 10, 2020
Friendly staff- but many small things prevent me from giving a higher rating. No toilet paper in our room when we arrived and had to keep asking for more because they'd gonly give us one roll at a time, bathroom door didn't lock, security door that says it locks from the outside each night doesn't lock so anyone can enter the hotel from the back anytime and that area continually smelled like urine outside, hotel seemed short-staffed so the check-in line was very long, they only gave one bar of soap so we kept taking it in and out of shower to use with bathroom sink, fridge doesn't keep things cold at all and they even have a disclaimer about it on the front of it which didn't make sense to us, there was no daily service of cleaning/restocking the room, and the showers need to be de-clogged. During my first shower, the drain was backed up with standing water. Our friends stayed in the lodges and those were really nice. They called to check up on them after their first night, but not for those of who stay in the regular resort area. We also had to make reservations to swim in the pool because of Covid, which is understandable, but you have to physically show your electronic reservation to get in even though there's a paper list with your name on it that they have on a clipboard. One older lady was a stickler about not letting people in without the electronic proof and other staff were fine about using the paper list. We really had fun on our trip, but I wouldn't make a reservation again in the regular resort. I enjoyed seeing my friends' room in the lodge area though and they've been happy with their room.

We enjoy this resort very much. The pool was cold but clean. The water slide is always our son’s favorite activity. The bathrooms in the pool area were not well maintained this visit. The hotel room was nice and clean.
