This was our 3rd trip to Great Wolf in Sandusky. Its a great place for young children-the water park had something for both kids, my daughter loved the cub room where she could draw/get her face painted, my son loved the arcade, and both kids looked forward to story time each night. On our last visit my daughter and I... More

Every year we try to pick somewhere to celebrate our son's birthday but something different than the local bowling alley or skating ring. We decided to give Great Wolf a try this year. We picked the Sandusky location because it was the closest to our home. After researching the property on here and other sites I was a little concerned... More

This is a return visit to GW in Sandusky and some things have definitely changed. We were on the first floor this time, which was cold and damp smelling. Our bathroom had mold and the wallpaper was peeling. We called the front desk Sunday morning due to excessive noise around 5:30 am, when the stomping didn't stop we called the... More

We stayed here just prior to new year and had a good time. The room was really spacious and there was adequate room for 2 adults and 2 children. When we arrived we went straight to the waterpark, it was slightly disappointing but my 7 year old and 2 year old seemed to enjoy it really well. Early the next... More

We just got back and we have stayed at quite a few hotels with indoor waterparks. This place is a great value for people who have younger kids. Ours are 7 and younger. Not as big as others and no big kid rides either. If your kids are teenage they could get bored in the waterpark. Rooms clean, service good.... More

Went here for a Christmas vacation. Having been to the Great Wolf Lodge in Wisconsin Dells, I was thinking this place would be similar. It was a disappointment. We had a room with a loft, which was nice and roomy. However, the entire resort feels dirty and the water park is small and not great. Best for younger kids. My... More

We enjoyed our stay here. This location is definitely much smaller and less popular than the few others locations we've stayed at, but it was a fun place to stay while we traveled and spent time at Cedar Point. The water park is also a little smaller than the other GWLs but it was still fun. If you're looking for... More

Unfortunately this lodge doesn't offer much for adults to do. Our toilet seat was loose and... More

We took our 4 and 5 year old here for the second time, and we had a blast. The staff was excellent and was very attentive to a food allergy that our son has. We had a problem with a food stain on our bed sheets that was immediately taken care of by housekeeping. Upon return to our room after... More
