    Would be nice, but I don't have the time enough this trip to do that. Well, and not having a car has a lot to do with that. :)

    Currently staying at WM St. George for a few nights. Seems to be a nice place - the unit I'm in seems huge. Anybody have any questions while I'm here?

    If future stays count, we're going to WM West Yellowstone in September. :)

    On a point of order - do the WMSP resorts really count? It is just an exchange program with a sister Club.

    And not that I am competitive or anything ... but if WMSP resorts do count - then dont Club Wyndham resorts count? :D

    For me, WMSP, as part of TEN, is w/out an exchange fee whereas Club Wyndham requires a fee. So I see it as a very closely related affiliate. My total may also include Wyndham locations that were visited as affiliates before Club Pass was launched but not after that launch; some of these later gained 'native' WM units restoring their 'count' status. :D

    I come up with 29, after remembering to add 2 in Texas and Fiji and New Zealand. Nope, 30. We bought on our first trip to Seaside on a trade. Nope, 31, forgot Oceaside. I think without having a list in front of me that that's it.

    ETA: 32, New Orleans
    ETA: 33 with Sydney. Still not looking at the list of past reservations Wmk keeps, now getting reminders from continuing to read this thread.

    ETA: Now I've gone back to actually looking at the list of completed reservations, and I come up with 36. Forgot two Las Vegas resorts and Pagosa Springs. I did not count the Royal Kuhio. We stayed there about half a dozen times before they removed it.

    Wyndham Resorts do not count because Wyndham is the spawn of the devil. Also to stay at a Wyndham Resort through Club Pass it takes 2 to 3 times the number of Points than if I traded through RCI. Also I can Book the WMSP Resorts online through the WMTC Web Site. Notice they both have Worldmark in their name.

    Not a Worldmark, or Wyndham member/owner. We've gotten these resorts through trades in RCI, no extra anything required. To me when a resort says Worldmark/Wyndham, I think they are the same. That's why I asked the question.

    ROAD TRIP! Whaaa-hoo!!! Do it! Do it! :)

    I've long been wanting to do a loop out across AZ and NM to add some missing locations. We'll hit those someday! Or maybe just continue east into TX to visit the new locations there, too.

    Mine would just be from Northern Utah (Wolf Creek, Bear Lake, Midway, Park City) to Vegas (Spencer, Trop, Blvd) to San Diego (Oceanside, Inn, Balboa).

    So when the rebranding of WMSP to Club Wyndham South Pacific is complete they will no longer count.

    And as a lawyer I know you recognize that the OP question is/was “how many Worldmarks”... not how many WM+affiliates+WMSP resorts.... as she specifically excluded Club Wyndham on the basis that she is not a member of that Club.... and presumably is not a member of WMSP also.

    Also WMTC and WMSP had a relationship long before Wyndham came along. WMTC Members can Book directly into WMSP with WM+A Points. For WMTC Member to Book into Wyndham through Club Pass they have to have WTS Points.

    We have been to 20 of them.
    CA:
    - Marina Dunes
    - Angels Camp
    - Windsor
    - Clear Lake
    - Bass Lake
    - San Francisco
    - Oceanside
    - Solvang
    HI:
    - Maui Kihei
    - Kona
    - Kauai
    UT:
    - St George
    OR:
    - Eagle Crest
    - Running Y
    - Seaside
    - Depoe Bay
    NV:
    - South Shore
    - Las Vegas
    - Lake Tahoe
    Canada:
    - Banff

    We like all of them but are partial to the resorts in OR. We are birders so Running Y is perfect for bird watching in the Klamath Falls Area. Depoe Bay has the best views, and Eagle Crest is in a picturesque location, with many hiking trails nearby.

    Yeah ... I'm gonna say, I don't write many reviews. I feel many of my stays, like last week's Havasu Dunes, are "just passing through." As such, I don't experience the resort, staff, activities or area as a guest might normally. How much can one really say of parking and a room? ;-)

    I try to write reviews, even if it's just parking and a room. Descriptions of what's there - and what's not - is helpful to me when deciding whether to stay someplace. Laundry in-unit, for example, helps me a lot, especially if I'm staying at the end of a longer trip someplace. I'm not a fan of laundry rooms at resorts. (I wasted almost four hours in the laundry room at Avenue Plaza because of broken equipment and slow drying times.)

    Swimming pools, barbecues, activities, and staff personalities are nice, but I rarely consider them when planning a trip. So even if I'm just passing through, it helps me to know about what I'm going to be seeing/using at the resort. Some resort units are more restful to me than others, so the "feel" of the unit is important to me. :)

    I hear you, Rhonda - I was just channeling my inner Brian (@TUGBrian ) and/or Doug (@Makai Guy )!

    But seriously though, even a brief stay can yield some meaningful insights. Out of curiosity, I just looked at the reviews for Havasu Dunes and found reviews from Christmas of 2018, Feb of 2017, April 2016, and April of 2010 - that's all in this decade! As you noted with your stay, I too have used my timeshare as a better option than a hotel by finding a TS along a vacation route and stay the night there (in much more comfort). Take a look at the reviews of Wyndham Fairfield Glade sometime and you will see I've used this resort in that manner. Even in just an overnight stay, I can offer observations on the check in experience, room condition, comfort of room furnishings, parking, how well the room is supplied, etc even on just one night's experience.

    Obviously, there are a good number of areas I can't honestly review with such a short stay but even if a review can only touch on a few of the points noted above, a review of your stay at Havasu Dunes could be very valuable - and timely!

    It is now 36. We just checked into Gleneden for the first time. This is where we first bought into WMTC in August 2002 on a day trip. But this is our first actual stay.

    We’ve only been to West Yellowstone and that was a rental from an owner.

    Very nice and can’t beat the location!

    WorldMark - Stayed at 61 WM resorts so far...more to visit.
    Interesting question. I had to go back and look up my reservation history since Jan 1999. Since that time we have made 175 WM reservations at 61 resorts with the most at Running Y in Klamath Falls, OR at 33, followed by 13 in San Francisco, 10 at Eagle Crest, 7 at Seaside, 6 in Seattle, 6 in Leavenworth, 5 in Kona, 5 at South Shore (Zephyr Cove, NV), and so on down the list. Our foreign bookings have been 1 in New Zealand and 12 in Australia including twice at Seven Mile Beach in Tasmania. I did not include the Wyndham resorts in Australia or in the US.
    ......That said, we have found with the dilution of our WM credit value with Wyndham’s many new programs since taking over Trendwest, it’s harder if not impossible to get into resorts, even when starting searches with RCI a year to 2 years in advance. Due to that, we are starting to sell off our WM credits as we find we can confirm condos in locations we want through Home Away for equal or less cost than the $5,000+ we currently pay in annual assessments plus the ever increasing housekeeping fees being charged.
