First the great stuff: The property is extremely well designed and the watermark is the by far the best planned and safest park we have visited. We took four kids aged 10, 8, 6, and 2, and everyone had a great time. The hotel was packed, but I never thought the lines were bad (mid-week in the late summer). The... More

This is our 3rd trip here in the last 4 years, and it will be our last. We knew what we were dealing with as far as the outrageous cost, so there were no surprises there. It is very expensive, even with AAA or a deal. The food is very expensive and just okay. The staff at the front desk... More

Last weekend was our third trip to GWL in the Poconos. We always have loads of fun, but the only thing included in your room rate is the room and the water park....NOTHING else. Every other activity has a fee associated with it. They have several options on site for eating. But get this, the buffet charge per person...doesn't include... More

We stayed here for 1 night in July - my wife and 2 kids (age 7 and 3). Overall, we had fun. However, the place is very expensive. We're talking $400 for 1 night…and that's with a discount. I'm not sure this place was worth that. The rooms were very large and very nice. We got the regular room and... More

This will be the second time that we have visited the GWL in the Pocono's. The last time was about 5 years ago. Just as before, we had a nice time but what we noticed this time is that the facility is starting to show its age. There is a lot of rust showing in the waterpark, some signs were... More

The idea of this place is great. A kid focused resort is a great thing. Pros: The rooms are a fun space for the kids & clean. The water park has something for everyone. And the activities are pretty endless. Cons: It's expensive, keep your eye out for deals long before you plan to go. The food...a lot is tremendously... More

I'm a picky traveler, and am very suspect of places like this. But I was pleasantly surprised. We brought three kids: 14, 12 and 9. They all had a blast and would come back. I thought the older two would be bored, but that wasn't the case. I think 4 days is plenty though. Here's a breakdown for you. Hotel... More

Kids had a great time at Great Wolf Lodge. they did a nice job having enough activities for kids of all ages. Kids especially loved the new ropes course and the wand games. I would come back with kids, but things to know if this is your first trip: 1. Lots of Added Costs. Other than the water park, pretty... More

My children loved everything about this place! The youngest enjoyed the characters, building an animal with her extra paw pass and story time, my middle son LOVED the magi-quest wands and aracade, my older daughter loved the water park. We added the breakfast package to our room and it was good food, however it's offered until 11am and you still... More

Starting on a positive note... I contacted cust serv. and explained that the 4:00 check-in time would be tough for us and they made sure our room was ready by 12:30. That was very helpful! The room was nice. Spacious. Clean. The hotel is decent. Fun/cool decor. Interactive games for kids to play as they walk around. There is a... More
