Not the place for teenagers

But that's my mistake -- I thought water park, sounds good, but it's a bit too young for a 13 and 16 year old. But they did enjoy the park and the arcade, the room was fine, clean... read more

We live equal distance from this GWL and the one in Traverse City. The Sandusky location felt like a Jr. version of Traverse City. The quest game was pathetic compared to others. We were traveling with age 6, 4, and 2 year old boys and I did feel like there were definitely more slides/activities for them to do. Bottom Line... More

But they did enjoy the park and the arcade, the room was fine, clean and spacious, the restaurant was good, especially the family style breakfast. They've got a Dunkin Donuts in the lobby which gets pretty... More

We had spent the day at the science center and then a long car ride. The boys slept on the way to the water park storing up energy. We got in kind of late so we went straight to the water park. They played for about 90 minutes and we were able to contain them after that. Kids had a... More

Having visited Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls, we expected more from the brand. The suite was great, with plenty of room for six of us. The water park was a lot smaller than other locations. There is only two that would appeal to children over ten. For those with young children, this would be adequate. If you have Tweens... More

We first brought kids here when they were 6 yrs. old. We all had a great time! Perfect place to bring them for the first time. They have cool activities after dinner time such as movie night and story telling. They offer good places to eat on the resort for a fair price. Only people staying at the park are... More

We got suckered by a "deal' on Groupon to a horrible indoor waterpark up the street from the Great Wolf Lodge. After being at the other place I made reservations for the Great Wolf Lodge. Best decision we could have made. The trip started out great with the desk receptionist giving our daughters Wolf ears and they wore them the... More

It's super expensive. The water park area is very nice, though smaller than some other Great Wolf Lodges. The hotel rooms are fine. The food is average. The magical adventure is fun, though the wands are pretty temperamental. Worst part, though, was the bar closed early, something like 9:30. After a full day at Cedar Point and then water slides...

We were excited to spend 6 night s at the Great Wolf. We've previously stayed at the Great Wolf in Mason and by comparison, this one seems smaller. We had a great time, but compared to our expectations, came away disappointed. The room itself was very large and comfortable. For the money we were disappointed with the simple of the... More
