This was our first time staying at the hotel. My family traveled with our kids (ages 5 and 2). My wife and I were very pleased with this hotel. Our kids loved the water park and everything that they could do there, especially all of the different slides. Having a swim shop in the water park was a bonus, too,... More

Our first time at the park this February. The family suites are a good size (two adults, 1 child in our room). Although the rooms were clean, and the beds comfortable, they did seem kind of well worn. There was a bit of a mildew scent, but with so many guests coming in wet from the pool, I guess that's...

We stayed at Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky January 20-23 2015. Our kids are 9 and 5 and they had a blast. The water park is definitely smaller than some others that we have been to and I think that teenagers would get bored after a while but for our kids, it kept them entertained for the three nights we...

My family of four ages 2 and 5 had an excellent time. GWL always exceeds in their service in every way. Waterpark is small compared to other GWL. Lots of activities for kids. Beds were comfy. The food at the Grill is decent just regular bar food. Had a great time. On the side I was in the next door... More

If you are looking for a clean, family friendly, fun place to get away, then this is it. The rooms are nice and very clean. The staff is helpful and always happy. Food is good. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wish there were more activities for young kids, besides the waterpark.... More

I took a large group, booked two rooms for a total of 10 people - five of them were children under the age of ten. I was aware that this resort is NOT ideal for teenagers. The kids loved it. It was clean, comfortable and because they do NOT offer day passes, it was not over-crowded either! The water park... More

Second time we've been here with family. My kids are now 7 and 5. My opinion of this place has gone down dramatically since the first visit. It's safe to say I probably will never come back to this place again. Bottom line: There's no real value with Great Wolf Lodge. I feel like they want to squeeze every last... More

I'll start by saying that the family had an incredible weekend away from the winter cold by spending time at the GWL. We thoroughly enjoyed the water park, slides, and warming tubs over the course of a couple of days. We stayed in the standard family suite which had two beds a small separator wall that had a couch with... More

The hotel was clean and everyone was friendly. The kids really loved the slides in the waterpark. The food was good everywhere but in the waterpark itself. Thank you our family really had a great time!
