Found the water park a bit on the small side but my kids are 5 and 7 so it made it easier to keep an eye on them. Bought each of our 2 kids a build your own stuffed animal. Couldn't believe the prices of the clothing. For the price of the animal, it should at least come with one... More

Clean rooms, had fireplace room thanks to standby upgrade. Fireplace was gas unit good for drying swimsuits... Nice clean and spacious room, but expensive. Water park very fun for 7 year old and entertaining for 12 year old, but probably not for more than 1-2 nights at most. One night was perfect for us, food was inexpensive and good, had... More

My children, age 9 & 12 enjoyed the stay. Very family friendly - staff was great. Entire lodge needs a good dusting, awesome decorations with inch of dust detracted from ambience. Water was too cool, didn't have thermometer - but did not feel 80 degrees. No sun inside to warm up the body. I liked how you can go to... More

We've never been to an indoor water park resort before, but we kind of had an idea of what to expect. If you go in expecting a family friendly average water park with LOTS of kids running around, then you'll be fine. When we arrived at 3:00 p.m., we had a little wait to check in, but were pleasantly surprised... More

We have visited the Traverse City GWL several times and love it. It's not only much larger and cleaner, but the location makes it worth the longer drive. The Sandusky GWL is a good choice if you cant travel farther to TC and if you arent planning on spending more than a 2-3 days. PROS: This GWL is better suited... More

Our family stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. We dined at every restaurant except for the snack bar in the water park. We were pleasantly surprised with the food quality. The breakfast buffet offered more than enough options, the pizza was delicious and the restaurant off of the lobby was great! The water park offers many things... More

My daughter received an offer to attend an alumni weekend at Great Wolf Lodge, and asked mom and dad to tag along. I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews, but my fears were eased after our arrival. Check in was easy, and even though there were no upgrades available due to being sold out for the weekend, the... More

We arrived yesterday with my 7and 4 year old and are having a blast! The check in process was awful, 45 minutes of standing in line after 3 hours in the car was not ideal BUT they had hoola hoops in the lobby and enough theming to keep the kids occupied. Checked in at3pm and went to the water park.... More

We have small children, ages 7 and 2. We stayed for 2 nights (Thurs - Sat) at this park because we knew it was good for smaller children. We have stayed at other parks in Sandusky so relied on our experience to make our decision. When we booked online we requested an upgrade, which was received and appreciated at check-in.... More

Thank you for visiting Great Wolf Lodge – Sandusky! The price increase occurred across the entire brand, so it was not done just at this location during your stay. This could have been communicated better to members of our retail team and for that, I apologize for any inconvenience this caused you. I hope you will return to stay with... More

This great wolf lodge is much smaller than the one closer to us in Mason, but Mason is double the price which we do not like at all, so we prefer to come to Sandusky. Sandusky is also less crowded for the most part. We went for a couple days over my daughter's spring break. My kids had a great... More
