I've been to Traverse 100's of times to visit family so have never stayed in a hotel in traverse city, before. Had to stay in a hotel this time and opted for great Wolf as it is a lot of fun and we weren't going to have a lot of time to do Traverse city things as i was there... 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

We had a wedding in Traverse City and stayed the w/e at the Great Wolf Lodge. The minute you walk in, the kids are in awe and amazement. The water park is super fun for kids and even for the grown-ups (my college age relatives had a blast with us as well). The slides are fun but not crazy where... More

We have taken our grandson to Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City several times & he had a ball every time. This hotel is a kids paradise; and a very nice hotel for parents & grandparents as well. He always enjoys the water park, that goes without saying, but also enjoyed Magic Quest. We've been there at Hallowe'en & done... More

Interesting hotel theme with an indoor water park. Room prices include access to the water park during stay. Great place to bring children, they love the water park activities which are carefully monitored by the very capable life guard staff. There is an arcade (bring money), pizza place, ice cream/candy place, bowling, kid's golf, and other children's activities. It is... More

We stayed here for a long weekend because they had lower rates than other hotels in Traverse City. We enjoyed the water park area and especially the hot tub since it was for adults only. I was surprised at how early the pool area closed. It should be open later since families are usually sightseeing during the day. The rooms... More

For the entire summer our daughter has been begging to return. We love that you are able to use water park as soon as you arrive and stay late the following day. I just wish the spa for kids wasn't so expensive, she wanted us to get a mani/pedi together but price was ridiculously high. We stayed in the Wolfs... More
