"Great Time"
May, 2018
This is a really nice resort. The people are friendly and the resort is very nice clean and comfortable. However, we did have to pay more for the splashatorium entrance and were only able to use it the first night we checked in, it was closed for remodel the rest of the time. I was not very pleased with this. I was very upset having been charged for something we could not use when the splashatorium was the reason we chose this resort. Would have given five stars had this not happened

"Would not stay here again"
April, 2018
Got there at 5:45 to check in, didn’t have any clean rooms. Had to wait for a phone from them after driving 6 hours. Room had an awful smell, bed was uncomfortable, pillows were small and lumpy. Bathtub was filthy and the “splashtorium” was across the street. We stayed 3 days, I thought the tub was stained. On the last morning I wanted to relax in the tub instead of take a shower, thats when I discovered it wasn’t stained and just needed to be cleaned. So gross

Stayed two nights for a quick get-away weekend. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but the rooms could use some updating. The carpet in our room was stained and appeared a little dirty, the bathroom door should be refinished or replaced, as the bottom appeared to have been damaged by water. The air conditioning did not work well; the wall control was digital but there was quite a variance in temperature and the room was either too hot or too cold. We ate at the Stage Door restaurant Friday evening. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating, and my husband's meal was fine. However, I ordered the chicken special which was recommended by another customer. It looked amazing when it was brought to me, but when I cut into it the chicken was not done. The waitress was extremely apologetic and brought me a replacement meal, then asked if we would like dessert and that it was on the house. They did not charge us for my meal or our drinks, and the salmon I ordered to replace the chicken was delicious. We ate the breakfast buffet there the following morning and everything was fresh and delicious.

This was our first stay w/ Welk Resort. We LOVED it! Everybody was so kind and helpful from check-in and during our stay. The atmosphere was so laid back and relaxing. Whatever u need is just a phone call away. The rooms r a bit dated but were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was nice with big granite countertops and nice sized shower. There is a refrigerator but no microwave. The Splash-a-torium was great. There are a lot of different things to do in there and nothing deeper then 5 foot and the edges were all 3’6” so the kids cld still walk around the pool to go from indoors to outdoors pretty easily. The only thing I didn’t like is the water slide is completely indoors and that’s all my 7-yr old wanted to do so for me to b able to watch her I had to sit indoors. I wld have liked to b able to sit outside and see her. It’s hard to keep up with the kids in there because they go from one thing to another! There are also some games to do when u want a break from the water. Parking is very easily navigated and the resort is down from the main drag enough to not b in all the traffic but still b close enough to go do all the things. We most definitely will stay here again!

The location was good. The staff were friendly and attentive. We ate by the pool and enjoyed the vacation! The breakfast buffet was fresh and good and I hate buffets. Some places need a map just to find your room, but everything was centrally located at this hotel. The stay at the hotel is worthy of a solo vacation!

We arrived on a Monday and left on a Friday. It was the perfect amount of time. We enjoyed being “off the beaten” path. The facility was a bit outdated but was clean. The splash-a-torium was a hit with our kids. The activities were definitely a bonus. The Million Dollar Quartet show was fabulous!! We wished there had been fireworks at the resort - there were all around but we couldn’t see many from where we were.
