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

We were called the morning of our stay to say that Great Wolf would be closing early the following day and that instead of getting our full time at the waterpark it would be about 1/3 of the time. Since they felt bad they allowed us to 'stay' in the room am additional 2 hrs (we didn't). We couldn't cancel... More

I booked a fireplace loft suite for my family and my brother and his wife for 2 nights. We included the paw pass for both of my boys 9 and 13. We spent the day at the water park and we all (including the adults) had a blast. Every 5 minutes the big bucket fills up and everyone stood and... More

We only stayed one night at GWL but the time at the waterpark was great for my kids (10 and under). I would be willing to go back but I had one concern about the room. We stayed in the Family Suite that is listed as able to accommodate 6 people (which is how many are in our family). For... More

Terrence, Thank you for visiting Great Wolf Lodge – Sandusky and providing us with your feedback! I am disappointed to learn of the issues you had with your Family Suite. With having 6 guests, I would recommend looking into our Loft Fireplace Suite. This room comes standard with 3 queen size beds, as well as an upstairs portion which would... More

I would like to start with the good stuff first. The park was just the right size for the kids that I took with me (4, 6, and 8). It had lots of life guards and you could tell that they were very attentive. The staff was great both during check- in and during all the activities. I loved how... More

I just looked over my review from last year and I'd say that our issues are the same with this particular GWL. This was our 12th time within the brand and again, I didn't feel the love with the front desk staff. I was offered no upgrades... no perks... nothing upon check-in. I was told that I could go to...

In case you are keeping up with our GWL experiences. Again this was a surprise for the kids. The Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky Ohio is a much smaller resort than the one in Niagara Falls. ( The water park is smaller ) However the kids really enjoy it. The room was spacious and clean. The kids said The magi... More

We stayed one night here on our drive to Notre Dame. We have stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos before. This Great Wolf Lodge is a lot small then the one in the Poconos and there was not as many water slides or a wave pool. After about 2 hours the kids were bored with the water... More

This was my first stay with this company. What a let down. The rooms are beat up and need to be updated. The water park is ok. We have stayed at 5 other indoor water parks and this was probably ranked in 4th place although the price is higher than most. With that being said I want to warn people... More

Thank you for visiting Great Wolf Lodge – Sandusky! We appreciate your concern regarding our neighbors, Wagner Quarries. Occasionally, during the course of their operations, pockets of sulfur will be released, but any odor typically dissipates within an hour. The EPA has done studies on the quarry and has not found anything harmful from this odor. I apologize for any... More
