I had read most of the reviews and was not sure what to expect. I was blown away. We had an awesome experience at GWL KC. We had a themed room and my four-year-old was ecstatic. The waterpark is clean, everything was in working order, and not crowded AT ALL. We never had to wait more than a minute or... More

Took the family to celebrate our daughters' birthday. We went on a Thursday, and checked in just after 1pm. To our surprise (from things we had read) our room was ready, so this allowed us to head up, drop luggage, and hit the water park without renting a locker, etc. The room was "fine" nothing special. The entire property seems... More

What an awesome hotel to spend a weekend or as a vacation destination. Wonderful themed hotel with a great indoor water park attached. Very good restaurant on site and lots to do in the area. Your kids will "love you forever" for booking a stay!!

Exterior presents itself well - grounds seem well maintained. The front desk support person was wonderful and several people were very pleasant but overall left with a meh impression. It started off rough at check in as our room was not ready. Dinner was ok - moderately priced. Breakfast was awful buffet - and I would say the service was... More

Took our 3 grandsons here for one night (mainly for the water park). The water park was clean and fun. The staff at the hotel was great. The room...not so great. We stayed in a cabin suite. The 3 beds in the "cabin" were not made. Sheets were folded on top of thin plastic mattress. They didn't have a bottom... More

This is the second time I have been to this Great Wolf Lodge. I though my experience was pleasant. The rooms are clean, really nothing to complain about. The food in the restaurant is expensive so plan to go out. There is a fridge and a microwave in the rooms. The staff is pretty friendly. Most of the life guards... More

Great place to stay with our grandsons! It was obviously off season - mid week October. No lines - lots of life guards! Water park was clean and not as noisy as others we have visited. The 85* was comfortable and not humid! Rooms were large and well set up! Room rates were good but resort fees seemed quite steep!... More

We stayed two nights and debated on leaving for a meal or shopping, but relaxed in the one location instead. I traveled with my husband, our 2 year old, and our 8 year old. We stayed in a Kidz Kamp room with bunkbeds and a separate tv. Our room was very clean and roomy with an extra couch, a table... More

The property looked beautiful from the outside and in the lobby area. Lisa at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was opened and we were extremely tired so we tried it. Food was okay but overpriced considering the available restaurants in the area. Our room was at the end of the hallway which was the longest hallway... More
