We booked a long weekend at this property during spring break. We rented their largest suite which was great for our group. I absolutely loved the huge bar area with bar stools. It was great space that we used a lot during our stay. The property itself is nice and a bonus is the Dunkin Donuts that is literally right... More

Since we couldn't afford the travel time or money for a Florida vacation, we decided on 4 nights at Great Wolf Lodge. My 5 yr old Grandson had a blast in the water park! He had been there before at age 4and enjoyed it, bu now he was tall enough to go on all the rides and he loved every... More

After several trips abroad with the kids, we decided to keep it simple and try the Great Wolf Lodge. I booked three nights over March break. After booking, I read several reviews and noticed several comments recommending getting a top-floor room. I called the resort (directly, not reservations) and asked for a top-floor room. The lady was very nice and... More

We just got back from our first trip to GWL and let me say I was very impressed. I had read some negative reviews recently so I was worried but it turned out really well. I called about four times prior to our arrival, (I kept forgetting questions,) and every time I called they were friendly, polite, and very helpful.... More

I actually Stayed here April 2013 and I was in my preteen years. I've gone to great wolf almost every year since I was 7 years old (I'm 13 now) I didn't go in 2014 though but my most recent visit was very enjoyable. I must say though that 2 years ago being a fairly mature 11 year old, it... More

When we checked in we were charged $173.14. Room package was $167.99? also $19.99 resort fee, state tax $11.28, Local room tax $9.40. Can... More

We had an awesome time and will be returning this year again. Our family comes from different directions and this was a perfect location for everyone to meet. Clean, fun and although the place was full we seemed to have lots of room and when we settled in at night it was quiet. Kids and well as adults had a... More

Great Wolf Lodge was a great two night trip for my husband, two year old daughter and I. The water park was awesome my daughter enjoyed it all. We stayed Sunday-Tuesday so there wasn't a lot of "big kids" to run my toddler over. There were quite a few people, but still plenty of space to play. It was z... More

First time for us. Good experience. Impressive facility. Great location in the South side of Traverse City. Close to everything (Best Buy, Meijer's, restaurants). Check-in was good. Rooms were good size, basic accommodations. Place handled a crowd well. Water park in a beautiful facility. Employees were very friendly, personable, attentive. Our kids enjoyed all the different elements in the park.... More

Stayed here in February and was ready for a nice stay and experience. We went right to the water park cause our room was not ready which was fine but once we got in the smell of chlorine was pretty strong. Also noticed that the pools all had that iron water stains, the slides leaked and a lot of the... More
