Having arrived at 2pm, we checked in and were told our room wasn't ready but that it would be ready "shortly", we were placed on some "priority list", and there was no where to store luggage on site so we could wait in the parking lot (28 degrees outside) or the lobby. I found out later that they could have... More

The staff we encountered always seemed friendly and helpful, with the exception of the in house restaurant. Thats another review. The sink in our room would clog up as soon as water was turned on and then it took what seemed like forever to drain. The shower leaked ans sprayed water all over the bathroom. Our room was just dirty.... More

Great place! Water park kept the kids busy all day & tired at night...yeah! Staff was very pleasant, facility was clean, & our room was great. ONLY complaint is the restaurants & games are pricey especially for a large family.

While staying at Great Wolf on our 2nd night there our 8 year old came down with a stomach bug. With out warning he vomited in the lobby while we were doing crafts. The staff was so incredibly kind and never made him feel ashamed for getting sick. They were attentive and understanding and really helped to reassure him that... More

Stayed three days and two nights. Booked a room with a separate kids area;). Our kids are 3 yrs and 9 months. The three year old loved having his "own room" and the room appeared clean. The room was spacious and had plenty of room for the kids to play. Pool area was a hit and it met our expectations;)... More

It's fun, but a little crazy at times. Kids running up and down the halls half the night. Staff just seemed so so in their enthusiasm to work there. I really only saw one staff member smile the whole time and she was scooping ice cream for us. Everyone else just seemed to go through the motion.

the options of the waterpark are awesome...kids have a blast. You know that it is germ infested...consider the volume of people & kids that are there...and when they have to close down the Lazy river & the basketball etc pool due to someone pooping in the water...but, it is what it is...we still had fun!

We just returned from a one night stay at GWL. We chose to book a Sunday night stay so that we could take advantage of the less expensive room costs. We booked a Wolf Den room in honor of celebrating our little boy's 5 year birthday. We were assigned a room on the first floor, which was conveniently located to... More

Good variety of attractions and food. Lodge was comfortable. The waterpark was warm, safe, and fun. The food was good and reasonably priced. We had a group of 7 relatives from ages 5 to almost 70 and all enjoyed our stay.
