We enjoyed our visit and stay at GWL. The lobby was great and check in was quick. We loved our room- kids camp. The kids really liked their own area and we liked that we could watch regular tv while they were kept entertained with their own tv. The water park was a lot of fun. It was clean and... More

While there are many on here to have had positive experiences with GWL mine and my sons was terrible. A child puked on us in the lazy river and no one stopped to shut the ride down till I brought it to their attention that a child was in trouble. Then staff made us feel like we were inconveniencing them... More

Great wolf lodge offers plenty to do for the whole family. While our kids were a little too young to enjoy all the activities in the water park, they still enjoyed it. They are still talking about it several months later. The only good we ordered was a pizza which was ok. We brought most of our food and there... More

The front desk really did a great job of welcoming me after a long day of travel. I was pleasantly surprised by how my requests were met with kindness and professionalism. I brought my family of 4 and we had our room ready by 2pm...well in advance of the 4 pm time that the water park usually sets as the... More

This was a memorable family experience. The water slides and pools are fantastic. The disappointment was that the water park did not open until 10 AM each morning,which is tough for kids staying there. Also the pools close at 8 pm, which was hard for adults.

Excellent for the whole family, especially during the Christmas holiday! We stayed during the 2012 Christmas holiday and it was decorated very festive. The swimming area was unbelievable! The largest swimming area we have visited.

I have stayed at two different Great Wolf locations. My family loves the one in Kansas City, because it is quieter than the one in Texas. The location is also wonderful. This time we went there was trick or treating in the hotel, among other events for October. This was great fun for the kids, however, it would have been... More

I'm really shocked at the dilapidated condition and the uncleanliness of this room. -The dust on the carpet and walls is 1/4 inch thick. It's absolutely disgusting. -The fire sprinkler is hanging down out of the ceiling -The coffee maker looked like it had never been cleaned (like the floors) -The carpets are thoroughly stained throughout the room. The furniture... More

Long wait at front desk to check in, at least 20 minutes. Room was dirty. Mold and mildew in bathroom. Very dusty room. Contacted front desk 3 times for extra blankets, twice over the phone and once in person. Three hours later at midnight no blankets so I went to bed. At the price I was paying I found this... More
