4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The front desk really did a great job of welcoming me after a long day of travel. I was pleasantly surprised by how my requests were met with kindness and professionalism. I brought my family of 4 and we had our room ready by 2pm...well in advance of the 4 pm time that the water park usually sets as the... More

This was a memorable family experience. The water slides and pools are fantastic. The disappointment was that the water park did not open until 10 AM each morning,which is tough for kids staying there. Also the pools close at 8 pm, which was hard for adults.

Excellent for the whole family, especially during the Christmas holiday! We stayed during the 2012 Christmas holiday and it was decorated very festive. The swimming area was unbelievable! The largest swimming area we have visited.

I have stayed at two different Great Wolf locations. My family loves the one in Kansas City, because it is quieter than the one in Texas. The location is also wonderful. This time we went there was trick or treating in the hotel, among other events for October. This was great fun for the kids, however, it would have been... More

I'm really shocked at the dilapidated condition and the uncleanliness of this room. -The dust on the carpet and walls is 1/4 inch thick. It's absolutely disgusting. -The fire sprinkler is hanging down out of the ceiling -The coffee maker looked like it had never been cleaned (like the floors) -The carpets are thoroughly stained throughout the room. The furniture... More

Long wait at front desk to check in, at least 20 minutes. Room was dirty. Mold and mildew in bathroom. Very dusty room. Contacted front desk 3 times for extra blankets, twice over the phone and once in person. Three hours later at midnight no blankets so I went to bed. At the price I was paying I found this... More

Rooms were okay, but not overly clean. Toddler/Small kids pool was closed on Sunday morning making that day basically worthless to us. I thought maybe it was just maintenence, but the group we were traveling with said it was closed on Sunday they last time they were there as well. If it was maintenence that should be performed overnight. If... More

Our plane/flight got cancelled to the next day due to weather and decided to stay here. I would say the water park saved the day. Kids had a lot of fun. Food was pricey but good. The hotel rooms were average but did the job. I would come again anytime.

This was our first stay at Great Wolf Lodge and I have to say that we had a fabulous time! We booked GWL in honor of my sons birthday using a promotional offer which was an excellent deal to begin with. We were shocked to see how large and comfortable the room was! We didn't expect that having booked the... More

Kids loved the water park and the room. It was a fun activity for the winter. The rooms were good size, had bunk beds for the kids and a fireplace. However, two consumer observations. First, the price is very expensive. This is definitely not a value, but more of a novelty. There are a lot of "extras" that you pay... More
