My family (kids: 5, 1) and I just got back from a brief, 1-night stay at GWL. Honestly, I was unimpressed. For the price we paid ($350 for a basic, 2Q suite), much more was expected. Check-In: Unlike others, our check-in process was quick and painless. Nothing out-of-this world, but as long as check-in is incident-free, I'll take it. Signs:... More

We stayed here for my son's birthday party with 4 kids. The experience was underwhelming to say the least. The problem for me is the price point. For $500 I expect a bit more than a room with no hot water and an A/C that's extremely loud. On the plus side, the bunk beds for the kids were nice, but... More

Very disappointed in our weekend at the Kansas City Great Wolf Lodge. The Check in process was slow, unorganized, and unpleasant. When we checked into our room, we found a dirty swim suit in our room's bath tub. The room smelt musty and unclean. The employees were generally unpleasant. Most seemed apathetic. Within the room, the TV, bathroom, and bed... More

Our recent visit was three days, two nights in late March when the outside activities were not available. We are grandparents and stayed with our son, daughter-in-law, and a 3 and 5 year old. The kids loved it - no question about it. Its all about the kids here. At check-in the kids were greeted by members of the "Cub... More

We just spent the last 3 days at great wolf lodge in KS and had a really good time. It was my husband, me and our 2 kids ages 5 and 2 (soon to be 3 in May). We paid a little more for the room with the wolf den which was expected. I also paid to get both kids... More

We just returned from our second visit to Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City. We knew what to expect because we had spent 1 night there on the way to St. Louis two years ago. Since that one night, our kids couldn't stop talking about it. They've been all over, and it seemed that Great Wolf ranked very high on... More

This was our first visit to the GWL and my 4-year-old thought it was the "best thing ever." The water park kept her entertained for hours and she loved the story time in the evening. She also had fun walking around the lodge with her magic wand to do the Magi Quest. While my husband and I also enjoyed the... More

I took my kids for a couple of days to stay at this location and they loved the water park area. The breakfast buffet was overpriced nasty food my children were gagging on it. The rooms and hallways could use some work. Our room had holes in the carpet and stains all over it. I also think that the $10... More

Check-in was late, room was dirty, saggy bed, old tube TV without HD, and "balcony" was a concrete slab on ground level. The water park was fun for the kids, but I should have stayed at a 4-star hotel and purchased day passes to a separate water park.

I do not recommend this place at all. The rooms, hallways, and swim areas were dirty and not maintained. The staff was rude and not accommodating. Oh did I mention rude and slow, very slow. I would not recommend this place at all.
