Our reservations were made before reading reviews, some of which were very negative. Consequently, as the mother and grandmother of this family of 18, with 5 rooms booked, I was skeptical of what I might find. My fears were quickly wiped away as we encountered no problems what-so-ever. The 3 family suites were clean and located in close proximity as... More

Welcome to the Lodge, welcome to the Lodge, the Great Wolf Lodge! We stayed back in July 2011 while visiting a local family. We went out for both days sightseeing so we didn't all utilise the water park, but it looked like a lot of fun. My kids are teenagers, so are a bit old for the games, but they... More

We go to GWL once, sometimes twice a year. Our kids are 16, 6 and 3. As always, they had a great time. Some reviewers are complaining about the room cost. You have to keep in mind that the price you pay is not just for the room but also for entrance to the waterpark. So, it's obviously going to... More

The water park really is the only reason you are going to this property. My almost 3-year old and 5 year old had an amazing time - and my husband and I had fun too! While the rooms were average - they seemed a little on the dark side to us - I suppose it was the hunter green and... More

We stayed at the Great Wolf for a long weekend. The waterpark is average. We have stayed at the Great Wolf in the Wisconsin Dells (as well as others there - Wilderness & Kalahari) and this is definitely a smaller property with a smaller waterpark. Our kids (13, 11 and 7) were pretty bored with the waterpark after a couple... More

I’m sorry to hear about the issues you experienced. For a larger waterpark, you might visit one of our sister locations (as you mentioned, the Wisconsin Dells). As for the noise, October is a busy month with our Howl-O-Ween celebration and the busier the hotel is the more noise you will hear. This is why we implement our hibernation hours.... More

Well I must say I was not sure what to expect with the mixed reviews. I went with my wife and 2 boys age 8 and 3. We arrived on a Wed and left on a Sat. Check in was great. They allowed us to check in at noon. The staff was great. Our room was very nice. It was... More

The hotel is in great shape yet, despite some of the reviews. The room was nice, everything was clean and the waterpark was a lot of fun. My 3 year old and 18 month old had a lot of fun in the kid pool with the small waterslides. There is so much around there in Legends, the location is perfect... More

There is so much fun stuff going on at the lodge! Kids of all ages will have a blast. My 20-month old was able to go down one of the kiddie slides and enjoy a shallow play area. The 10 and 12 year olds with us loved the big slides!! There is an adults only large hot tub that is... More
