This is my third stay at this hotel. The last visit was in 2010. Overall, this hotel needs to be updated. The carpets are worn and dirty. The building is showing signs of age. The pull out sofa bed is the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. I requested a rollaway bed because even that would be better... More

Pros: Wristbands- Use these for room keys, purchasing food, (even Starbucks coffee), souvenirs and entrance into water park. Water Park is really amazing and this time of year not very crowded. Nightly Story Time for kids in hotel lobby Front desk staff and staff in general were very helpful, friendly and able to answer questions. Pizza restaurant on first floor... More

Took our two grandsons here and as usual, they had a blast. I feel they are in a clean, safe environment and we will continue to return. They are 4 and 5 and never want to leave! The only complaint I have is the one bigger slide that they could go down was not working and we were not made... More

My two sons and I are currently staying at the resort and, while my 10 year old is having fun, my overall impression of the hotel is that the management tries to make up for the high operational overhead by skimping on staff. We were at the water park on a Friday morning with many other families with young children... More

Pros: The hotel was nice, clean, and had lots of activities. It seemed very family friendly. My kids loved their separate sleeping area and I felt like we had plenty of room. The activities and food were pricey but it was expected. You can find many food places around the hotel. Loved having a balcony/patio. I thought the price of... More

This was our first Great Wolf Lodge experience so keep that in mind. Check in fairly smooth as we checked in at 3pm. Upon arriving to our floor (4th floor) it looked like a college dorm went crazy, old pizza boxes, used towels and sheets all outside the doors of the room. You had to zig zag to get down... More

Went with my extended family, and we were disappointed that so little was actually included in the very high price. For $250+ per night per room, you'd expect things like a scavenger hunt might be included, but they're not. The breakfast buffet was another $15/person. Just seemed like there was a lot of nickel-and-diming going on. On the plus side,... More

Great location! Rooms are clean and there's enough activities to entertain the kids the entire stay. The water park was very clean but the water seemed a little colder this year. Do spend a little money and allow your kids to do the magiquest, shadow quest or compass quest. My kids made it to the leader board within a couple... More

We love great wolf lodge. It is a little pricey but there's so much to do, it really is it's own resort. The kids love the arcade and the magiquest game, but they are extra. We also really like the buffet and the pizza. It's a great staycation. Tip- don't reserve the more expensive rooms, there's usually upgrades available at... More
