Yes there is a TV, but you get the Great Wolf Lodge commercials repeatedly. If you plan on staying there don't get your hopes up on watching the Royals while the kids play, because its not gonna happen. Half of the indoor water park play toys don't work either. It was quite cold the first day in the water park... More

Stayed at this resort/hotel April 24-26. We met our family here for my daughter's 2nd b-day. First they told us that they didn't have available slot for a b-day party. They called us back days later and said they could make space for us to have the party. It was great business IMO and def made us happy. The birthday... More

We went to Great Wolf lodge for a quick getaway during spring break. I read many reviews and wasn't holding out too much hope. Once again this is a property that is almost "there". What I mean by that is it seemed most of their issues are management related. Lets start at check-in. I had no idea of the layout... More

Took daughters & their families for a Thurs-Saturday stay. We had a room with loft plus a regular queen room. Only one complaint in that the loft floor squeaked and beds were made on regular floor, but not in loft (did leave new face towel at bottom of stairs). Rooms were clean and beds slept well. You do not stay... More

Great activities for kids and that is the main reason we went here. The water park, shop, & restaurant are well maintained. The rooms are surprisingly dirty. The cleaning staff never change the sheets or vacuumed the floor the whole time we were there. There is mold growing in the bathroom which is gross. The room we reserved wasn't available... More

Great attentive lifeguards at this resort. Felt very comfortable with how attentive they were at this location. Always moving and looking. Actually saw a young man lifeguard jump in to help a small child and her parents were not even aware she was in trouble. She was not wearing a PFD. He was great! We book at the Great Wolf... More

Three stars because this place is a kids dream. As an adult there are so many things you notice that are really disappointing. The watermark is awesome. Lots of things to keep the kiddos bust and lifeguards everywhere which is comforting. Activities for all ages and swim levels. The MagiQuest is super fun for about 5 years and older. Arcade,...

We had three groups of our family (for a total of 10 people) meet at Great Wolf Lodge for the Easter Weekend. We struggled to find any deals, and ended up paying a lot more than we wanted. But we went ahead and booked the rooms. We pre-checked in upon arrival and were delighted by the front desk staff. They... More

We arrived at 1pm on Friday. There was no line at the check-in desk at that time and we were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready as well. At 2pm when we passed through the lobby, the line was long, so thank goodness we arrived earlier. We got the family suite which was nice and cozy. Kids immediately wanted... More
