Our son had a blast, and that is what really matters. We loved the Sweet Shop, the Indoor Water Park, the pool outside, and MagiQuest. It is a little expensive, but what can you expect at a place like this.

It was a great family vacation! Face painting, dancing, story time. The kids had a blast. Water park was great for kids and parents. Only problem was hearing the other guests above us take a shower early in morning and hearing the water drip. Or hearing their kids run around. Next time I'll ask for the top floor. Definitely would... More

Disappointed with cleanliness of our room- when we went to go to bed and turned down the sheets the flat sheet and mattress was soaked with urnie. Called the front desk and the only offer to fix the problem made by housekeeping was to put on another mattress cover. Well the mattress was still soaked which should of been delt... More

The overall experience at GWL was good. Plenty of activities to do! Our Kids Camp room was good other than a broken light in the kids room and the wet carpet from the a/c unit. The dining experience at Camp Critter Bar and Grill was not the best both times we ate there. The food was good but the staff... More

I think you have a great concept with your hotel, but the facilities could have been cleaner and better kept. The grout in our shower had mildew in it, which is so gross. I knew that you had no other rooms available at all because others in our party had room issues, so I didn't even bother to complain about... More

Average is not exactly right but is an average of two pieces of this Lodge. The water park and the activities for kids associated with this place are EXCELLENT. We would go again just for that part of the experience. However, the breakfast buffet was overpriced for the choices you had and the food was not very good. The evening... More

The only reason we stayed at Great Wolf was because we had a gift certificate. Even with the generous gift, we still paid an additional amount that would have been close to a night's stay at another hotel. $300 later, we barely spent any time at the hotel. Breakfast was buffet or pastry in the restaurants (additional cost); no other... More

Service was great, staff at the front desk was awesome, amenities in the room were good. Our room had a wet floor where the air conditioner had leaked, so therefore we had to have a hurricane fan blowing on it continously, and the light over the bar kept shorting out. This was very unsettling not knowing if our room was... More

The room was old. The Water park was OK, but packed. The restaurant was below average and the service was even worse. Overall service was lacking, and didn't leave feeling it was worth the money in the end.

Excellent location for a family reunion. Especially good for young children between 5 and 13. In addition to the wate park, our grandchildren really enjoyed Magic Quest. We purchased the $70 package for all 11 of them and it enabled them to go from activity to activity for the 3 days/2 nights they stayed there. The rooms with the cabin/bunk... More
