We were one of two couples traveling together to explore the Mother Lode. We stayed at WorldMark/Wyndham Angels Camp for one night. One couple had a three-bedroom unit, one had a one-bedroom unit.
We've stayed at a wide variety of timeshares from Florida to California and Hawaii. This one was nothing spectacular. The setting is pleasant, a hilltop overlooking a golf course on one side, but the maintenance seemed a bit lacking. Our units both had enjoyed recent renovations and the interior decor was pleasant. Unfortunately, little things like trash pickup seem a bit lacking. Looking down on the hillside from our unit was a soiled baby diaper; I'd think a cleaning staff member should have seen it if they looked out the window as we did.
We were in the Wyndham section of this newly-merged facility (at least, that's what I was told by staff). The WorldMark units (again, I was told) look over the golf course which is a much nicer view. The three-bedroom unit we had was a two-storey unit; two bedrooms and a bath, kitchen, living area on the lower floor (the second); master bedroom/bath/sitting area on third floor. The one-bedroom was on the first floor and, as seems typical of other World Mark resorts we've stayed out (think Kihei, on Maui) the lowest floor units have really dark entrances due to the building's design. It's rather like heading down into a cavern to get to the front door. Fortunately, once inside, the sunshine from the living room side brings some light into the unit. Windows looking out into this "dark area" aren't very inviting, though.
Kitchen was well-appointed with everything needed for preparing quick or more involved meals. Thanks for the extras like salt, pepper, coffee and microwave popcorn!
We did not dip our toes into the pool--but families seemed to enjoy it and use it happily. If you're not into splashing/happy swim activity noises, ask for a unit in the building not across the street from the pool.
We weren't interested in purchasing/investigating a timeshare purchase so we quickly made that clear to the salespeople in the front lobby. Unlike some timeshare places we've stayed as a "hotel" stay, here you are forced to interface with the sales staff--in this case to get your parking pass. Why not just let the check-in folks get you your pass? I know, because they want to let the salespeople have at you for a few minutes...oh well, I guess that's to be expected.
A pleasant short stay--not sure if there's enough going at this resort to keep me here longer. There are lots of activities within an hour's drive as well as historic areas to explore--but I wouldn't spend a lot of time at the unit.
