When arriving, the hotel was packed and the lobby was fully. I told my girls to expect a long wait and be patient. But, the line moved very fast and efficient. We were through in about five minutes, instead of the 20-30 minutes I was expecting. As an added bonus, we even got a luggage cart to use. Normally, I... More

I really enjoy Great Wolf Loge every time I go. I will say the experience is fun, especially the first time you go. The hotel is styled like a lodge. There are plenty of activities to do, but they all require money. The water slides are fun and the play areas are fun. For teenagers, they may get bored quicker... More

We spent a Friday night here with my sister and her family (4 adults and 3 kids total). The waterpark is the main feature and the kids absolutely loved it! It was very clean and the lifeguards were very professional. We rented a locker and that was $10.00. A little steep in my opinion, but we needed it for our... More

My family of five (3 kids - ages 7, 8 and 9) visited over the Memorial Week holiday. We were starved for some away time as a family so we booked the visit as an end-of-school reward for the kids. After reading some of the reviews here and other places we were a bit concerned. I'm pleased to say that... More

We absolutely loved staying here! Our kids 9,10, & 11, had so much fun!! Me and my husband actually really enjoyed ourselves also. There are 5 slides that we all loved. Memorial Day was busy but the following day was not near as many people you didn't have to wait in line as long for the slides. The staff was... More

Our stay here was tainted immediately by the front desk staff's lack of courtesy. We checked in at the allotted time (4pm) but they told us our room wasn't ready! How is that possible? So they are charging us for less than a night's stay as well as someone else stay. In reality, we are being charged for less than... More

We stayed just for one night on Memorial Day and had a good visit. The water park was the highlight, as one would expect. My wife and I stayed in a Family Suite on the 4th floor with our 6 year old and our 1 year old twins. It was spacious and had a nice deck overlooking the outdoor pool... More

We usually stay at the Great Wolf Grapevine location, but after about 6 stays there, we decided to try the Kansas City location. The Kansas City lodge is overall smaller, and a few years older, but still very nice. We found that the customer service in Kansas City was MUCH better than in grapevine. Our room was supposed to be... More

Went to the lodge earlier this week and the trip started by going to our room and it had a funny smell in less than 2 minutes I found the large wet mold spot above the shower in the bathroom. So while the wife and kids got ready to swim I went back down and spent 20 minutes getting our... More

If you ever want to be left in ambiguity check in to the front desk... better yet pre check because even with a reservation and an a check in time of 4 pm they cannot give u a time n the manager hides behind her staff. I can say that this is the worst experience in a hotel ever.
