I decided to stay here because the conference I was participating in was hosted by Great Wolf Lodge...chose convenience over saving a couple of dollars. The room was great and the check in staff, noticing I was alone, gave me a room super close to the conference center (and, as it turned out, super far away from the water park... More

We had a great time! It was busy but staff were quick to get us checked in. Purchased the birthday package which was a hit! Dinner at the restaurant was well priced and the food was good. We rented a cabana at the pool and I will definitely do that again! Can't wait to go back

We stayed at GWL this weekend. We haven't been to GWL in 3 years. We noticed several things that had changed but not for the better. In our room we found 3, Yes! THREE, used band-aids in the fold out couch. Super gross! We were also surprised at how relaxed the water park attendants were compared to previous years. There... More

I was so impressed. The biggest thing for me was the focus on safety in the water park. The lifeguards take their jobs seriously and are very well trained. They have many lifeguards stationed all over the water park and each one was friendly and very good at their job. They were in constant motion looking out for the little... More

We've been going here going on 5 years now..whenever we can find deals :) LOVE Traverse City and Leelanau :) Always been a good time. And then as our kids are getting a bit older they have started liking the Magiquest game now too.. The outside area could add a few more slides/rides etc. But we just love it here.... More

We took our 1 1/2yr old and 2 1/2yr old for there first trip to a water park. We arrived and check-in was smooth no line, but let me tell you this place must be busy all the time. We went mid week, we had thought before schools let out for spring break, either way were wrong or parents decide... More

It was a lot of fun! My kids, ages 13, 6 and 1 1/2 all had a great time! All 3 were thoroughly entertained. My husband and I thought their prices for food were a bit on the high side but it was all very delicious. The breakfast buffet is worth every penny! We will definitely be back. :-)

Horrible!! Traverse city Great wolf Lodge is a waste of money. Room wasn't vaccumed, food still on the floor, one bed not made. The ,"wet bar" in the room was a joke, only 2 bottles of water. We paid almost $600 for the room, iv had better and cleaner $50 rooms at other roadside motels. Lots of things not working... More
