My wife and I decided to take our five year old son to Sandusky's well known Great Wolf Lodge. I had only heard about it for the first time when my son mentioned that a Pre-K classmate of his had gone there with his family. I saw the excitement on his face when we told him that we'd be spending... More

Great Wolf Lodge was a wonderful surprise given my previous experiences with lodging in Sandusky. It is very exciting for children and yet pleasant for adults. Activities were well balanced. The children, all of them it appeared, were thrilled with bedtime storytime. The waterpark is very creative, something for everyone. I consider this money very well spent and we will... More

This hotel is really cool for kids and even adults can really enjoy themselves. Food is kind of expensive so pack food. If you stay in a room where they count the sofa sleeper as a bed.. do not..i repeat do not count it as a bed!! Bring an airmattress!!! Soo uncomfortable.. its nothing but springs. Felt like we got...

We stayed at the GWL in order to go to Halloweekends at Cedar Point (10 minute drive from the hotel) and we were happy with our stay. Yes this is meant for kids but we are big kids and went to the water park and the game room. The room was very clean, more spacious than I thought and well... More

This was our second trip to GWL this year and once again, my kids loved it! They are 2 and 3 and it's perfect for them! We always come in on a Thursday so the kids can enjoy it before it gets the weekend crowd. They loved the waterpark, the Clock Tower and story time! Since we went in October,... More

The waterpark itself was very nice and clean! We have 2 small children and at 8:00pm they have story time in the lobby which the kids loved! The room was below average, very outdated, carpets and the carpets were visibly dirty. We spend most of our time at the waterpark and not a whole lot of time in the room.... More

We stayed at GWL and really REALLY enjoyed the water park and the breakfast we had the day we checked out. My only concern and it's still a concern--I called ahead to check and see if this GWL location ever had issues with bed bugs (that's the last thing I want to worry about on vacation). The guy who I... More

Recently took my 2 year old to this water park. I think it's geared more towards kids over the age of 4-5. My daughter had a great time in the toddler pool but that was the only area for her. You can't take toddlers down the slides with you so they have to be able to go by themselves. The... More

My son just turned 12, and we decided to celebrate at GWL. It is where he wanted to go. I became a member of their email club and was rewarded with 25% off. We received wolf ears at check-in! It was a very nice touch. We got a quiet clean room on the third floor. The five of us didn't... More
