We went this weekend it was ok room could have used some attention and the chairs on or balcony were filthy. The water park was ok the kids had a decent time. Some of the staff could have been friendlier.

This is not your typical GWL. There are 4 water slides, 2 tube rides, and no wave pool. This hotel would have been so much better had it been clean. The carpets in the hallways were a mess as well as the carpets in the rooms. The rooms themselves are not bad. The beds are comfortable and decor is modern,... More

We've stayed at the Wisconsin Dells location (2009) and haven't returned because the Avalanche Bay located at Boyne Mountain is very nice. This location is very worn and showing its age. Our furniture is stained and very used. We have a loft room and the rate is over $300. Too much given the condition of the room. The room doesn't... More

We had a great family weekend here! The reservation staff was very accommodating when we asked for an additional room. All of the staff from room service to waterpark to restaurant were awesome! The waterpark was clean and well staffed with guards. The restaurant staff was very nice. We will return to Great Wolf!

We recently went traveled from Pittsburgh over to Sandusky Ohio to stay at Great Wolf Lodge. We stayed Sunday into Monday and all in all it was a great time, great family oriented place to stay. We checked in around 3:00 p.m. and our room was already ready. Unlike other reviews(at least what we were told) you can no longer... More

This was our 4th visit to this location. We arrived on Friday and departed on Sunday. The check in went very well, waited less than 2-3 minutes. Front desk was very courteous and helpful. We were asked our preference on which floor we wanted, we didn't care. So we were placed on the first floor. Our room was pretty neat... More

We stayed overnight at Great Wolf Sandusky, OH. We've visited different Great Wolf resorts, and I like them best for my children (3 year old and 1 year old). This one is a little smaller than those that I've been to. The lobby is smaller, the waterpark was a little smaller, and they were undergoing renovations. There was plenty to... More

My family drove about 500 miles to get there. Only to get a call from hem saying the waterpark wasn't opening on time! I called back and was told they would give us a better room and a late check out time to make it up to us. Well as nice as our room looked, the fire place didn't work... More

First of many visits in our future! Our son is 21 months & he had a blast. So much more than the water park too! Food was delicious & high quality. Each room comes with a fridge & microwave. Very kid friendly! Close by are other great restaurants & shopping. Can't wait to come back
