What is Welk Resorts San Diego's Pet Policy?
Welk Resorts has a strict “no pets” policy. Pets are not permitted on the property with of course, the exception of service animals only.
Is Welk Resorts San Diego Close to the Beach?
You may assume that since this resort has San Diego in its name, that it is located near the beach. However, Welk Resorts San Diego is in Escondido. A more inland city in San Diego.
Nonetheless, it's still a great place to stay. Honestly, you don't need to leave the resort at all, there are that many things to enjoy.
Is Welk Resorts Close to Legoland or the San Diego Zoo?
As I mentioned before, the resort is inland San Diego. However if you want to explore coastal San Diego, its less than a 30 minute drive to the beach, the San Diego Zoo, Legoland California, Gaslamp Quarter or Temecula Valley.

I know it's a lot of information, but I wanted to make sure you had all the facts before you go. That being said, I hope you do get to visit one day. I know you will love it as much as we did!

How long is the presentation last that is mandatory to be attended? Are they very pushy about trying to get you to purchase the timeshare? I don’t mind attending it, however I do mind feeling cornered. Does everyone who attends the timeshare have to attend the timeshare meeting? Or is one family member acceptable? Thank you
It's a 2 hour presentation. I have not attended though. I have heard they are somewhat high-pressured, but I am also not sure about that. I am pretty sure just 1 person needs to attend for the deal. If you aren't comfortable doing the presentation, you could just book as a regular hotel stay.
