This is definitely a place for families. I stayed here with some friends for Colossalcon in June and while we managed to make it worth our time (we utilized the hot tub and arcade) we just were not the target audience. If you're looking for something more adult, definitely choose the Kalahari because the Great Wolf Lodge is more suitable... More

After a trip up to Niagara Falls with the family we decided to kick back and relax for 2 last days of vacation at Great Wolf in Sandusky. Perfect 10 for families with kids 10 and under. The hotel was nice and the facilities were clean. The staff was very willing to help answer any question. There was even a... More

We stayed here 2 nights while going to Cedar Point! It was perfect. Kids enjoyed rides during the day and swimming at night! Hotel was clean, easy to find, easy parking, great breakfast and had a great pool for the kids!

I've stayed here a few times in various rooms, including the Kids Cabin Suite which I loved, but because our family has grown from 5 to 6, we now book the Loft Fireplace Suite, which is also lovely and spacious. My husband and I slept in the loft which has a nice queen size bed and its own powder room,... More

OK, I am going to do some complaining here, however, please keep in mind that my family LOVED staying here, overall! Very nice, clean place, with very friendly staff, great restaurants, Very nice rooms with comfy beds, and a fun waterslide park! We were all very pleased! In fact, my 9-year old son told me that this was THE BEST... More

This is probably the cleanest hotel resort I've ever stayed in. My son and I take an annual summer trip somewhere and this year we went to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky Ohio. The hotel is about fifteen minutes away from the park so if you want to take a break in the middle of the day, the hotel... More

This was my 10th visit to this GWL over 2 years. We normally stay here when visiting Cedar Point and typically have a very good time. Its actually a very affordable option for staying in the area if you use a discount, and if the weather isn't nice, you have the indoor water park as a backup to whatever else... More

This was our first stay at a property like this and we couldn't be happier! My kids loved the nature theme and all the property had to offer. They LOVED the indoor water park, arcade and story time in the evening. We went to Cedar Point one of the days and all my kids wanted to do was leave so... More

We stayed at Great Wolf Sandusky of one night just to get away. The place was amazing! The staff was friendly, the room was great. The beds were so comfortable. The wall paper in the bathroom was a bit busy for my taste. The only down sides I could find was the water in the pools was a bit chilly,... More

Took my teen-aged granddaughters here for an overnight stay. They had a blast. The water park is smaller than I expected and it is mostly geared for little kids, but the older kids had fun, too. They have an arcade and a few other things as well as several restaurants. The only negative thing I can say is that my... More
