The lobby was great but there was alcohol around I did not think it was good for kids. But the Waterpark was very fun and the rooms were great clean and very helpful staff. At times a couple of the staff were rude but that happened at all hotels. I saw how pricy it was but it was worth it... More

The watermark is great, food is good and the characters walking around greeting the kids! We got in out pi's for story time and than the dance afterwards! The kids were pooped! We have... More

This is our 4th time staying at GWL, TC. Things could really use some updating. The clock-tower show is really in need of some TLC. The entire thing is dusty and shabby looking. Animals hardly move anymore and the sound is very hard to hear. The rooms could also use some renovating. Carpet is in bad shape and overall feeling... More

Our room was very nice and the kids had fun doing all the activities. The pool area was very clean and well maintained. I wish the staff would pay more attention to detail when they clean. Everything was so dusty. Even the giant clock, which is the focal point of the lobby, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in over... More

Okay so my wife, daughter, and I went there on a weeklong stay to northern Michigan; we were supposed to check out after a few days and move to another hotel but enjoyed ourselves so much (and we don't mind driving to other cities) we decided to stay and use it as the base throughout the trip. The main reason... More

First off, our GPS took us way east and then brought us back via some very country roads. Please watch your map and if you are coming up from the south, come up 31. It is right on 31 (also called Division Rd). It is probably 1 or 2 miles south of West Traverse Bay. It is positioned between Kohl's... More

We all had such a great time here. I was a bit worried at first due to some of the reviews but we had such a memorable experience and wish we could stay longer. The room was very clean and comfortable. The whole hotel was well decorated and very appealing. We enjoyed the Dunkin Donuts for breakfast and Camp Critter... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay with our kids and grandkids. The resort is clean, staff are friendly, and the waterpark is very well run. My husband and I had a queen suite to ourselves and had plenty of room. Our girls booked larger kid camp rooms, which worked beautifully for their families of 5 and 6 respectively.... More
