Great time with our 5 year old grandson! Perfect place to take kids. Beautiful resort - large rooms - very clean. We would go there again. The indoor water park was great. Our grandson played at the water park until he ran out of energy. We really enjoyed our stay!

The staff was very professional. They accommodated our group very well. The conference area was perfect for our 30 person group. Alex the night security was a nice fella. He was professional and treated us very well even when we were being a little rowdy. I hope we work with him in the future.

My wife and I took our daughter, son-in-law and three boys ages 3,5,7. This was a first time visit for us all. We were really impressed. Rooms were clean and beds were awesome as well as the sheets "so soft". Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Water park was so much fun and we were so impressed with the lifeguards who... More

I took my children here (under 13) and they absolutely love it. We've been here twice. I had fun too. We had a kid camp suite. Besides the water park, the arcade is awesome. They also have a nightly story time in the cool main lobby. We didn't eat in the restaurant but did get pizza from their to go... More

We booked this place for my sons 7th birthday and it turned out to be a very bad idea. We called 3 days prior to make sure we were set, they didn't even know who we were. The day of the party we arrived early to make sure it was good to go and the hostess again, did not know... More

My family and I took my two children and my neice to GWL four times so far. All the same location. Each time the room was great. Kids LOVED them! Rooms were clean, and the milk & cookies delivered to the room and bedtime was great! I believe it was a charge of $7.99 (worth it for the experience!) Our... More

Clean room, good service, and a decent place to stay. The beds did not have fitted sheets and the bottom sheet did not cover to the foot of the bed. About the last foot of the bed was just the mattress cover. The heater was the through the wall type and was kind of loud but worked great. The WiFi... More

My wife and I took our daughter and grandson to the Great Wolf Lodge. The room was clean and had plenty of space for all of us. The water park was amazing, Ten Paw Bowling Alley, and the Arcade were all over the top fabulous. Cub Club with Ambassadors of Fun, Stephanie and Doug, was a real treat for grandson.... More

We were all set to advance-book here, but chickened out at the last minute. So once we got to Traverse City, we decided to stop in and check it out. Wasn't sure if an Adult Couple (sans Kids) would ENJOY a place like this, but...now we know it would be Very Good IF staying during the Off-Season, especially DURING THE... More

The service was good, the beds were comfortable. The room was clean and great. The view was beautiful, even if it was facing the parking lot. The only problem, we don't have kids. And everything that was there for anyone to do was geared more towards families with kids. I loved the wood and everything, but needs to have more... More
