When we got there the computers were down so we could not check in, nor could any room keys be made. We were quickly given wristbands and a free locker to use the waterpark while we waited. When we came back a few hours later we still couldn't check in. By that point we had 4 tired, hungry kids and... More

Great Wolf Lodge may be expensive but if you get a great deal, it is a great time. The coverall fun factor is a given. We know what to expect when we go there. The lifeguards are always on duty, attentively watching. The rooms are average. The kids absolutely love the bunk beds! We don't spend much time in the... More

While a bit on the pricey side GWL is a lovely family getaway. They even have a spa so parents can take turns having a real escape of their own! Your kids will have a blast

Great place for the kids...crowded during peak hours....if you can do GWL off-peak the kids can have a great deal of fun!

Very nice hotel with it's rustic decor. Fun for the kids. Water park very large with plenty to do for all ages. Lobby of hotel reminds you of a ski lodge with it's log-cabin like decor and large fireplace. Restaurant and snack area a bit pricey for a family of four.

This was the second time staying at GWL for our family. The computer crash was a nightmare for both hotel guests and staff. There should have been a better system in place if this was ever to happen. It was very annoying having to ask someone to let you in your room let alone not have them ask any specific... More

Went to Great Wolf for a one night (Tues-Wed) over the winter break. Our party had 2 adults and 5 kids ranging in age from 13-7. We stayed in the Loft Room with 1 1/2 baths and a fireplace. It was GREAT to have the second bathroom with 7 people in the room. The layout of the room was interesting... More

I stayed at GWL Niagara with my two sons, Ages 5 and 7, in early March 2012. Take advantage of the 48 hour sales when they occur, you can get a great rate on some very fun themed suites! We stayed in a kid cabin suite, which was actually big enough to fit a third child in the kids' quarters.... More

We have travelled many times to Great Wolf. Great waterpark and the food in the place is good. We just find it a little pricey. Especially when the GWL in Michigan and Ohio are quite a bit cheaper.
