When it comes to family resorts and traveling with kids, you have to have the attitude of, "it is what it is." Go to Great Wolf Lodge expecting an indoor water park and you won't be disappointed. That is exactly what we did. We booked our room (a standard king with a pull-out) in advance, reviewed the Great Wolf website... More

Just came back from spending 2 days at the Great Wolfe Lodge. I was a little nervous after reading a ton of reviews. The negative ones always seem to stick out more so I was a little apprehensive on what to expect. Well I have to say our family had the best time ever. Some people are a little to... More

We just finished our third one-night stay at GWL in Grapevine since we live in the area. There were 5 of us in a standard family suite so one would have to sleep on the sofa bed. We pulled out the sofa bed rather late, around 10:30pm, to find that there wasn't even a real mattress on there. It seemed... More

This place is high$$. That being said, the kids had a good time with the exception of the long lines and the few kids whose parents put them in the pool and went to the mall. The room was great, bunk beds were perfect and kept the kids separated which is unusual when we travel. We thought the bed (a... More

As a lifeguard, I keep reading all these reviews about poop in the pool! Surely the kids can't be pooping that much. I have worked at many aquatic facilities and have personally seen lifeguards secretly putting a small chocolate candy bar in the water so they would have to shut down operations for a few hours!!! It's an old trick... More

I can't believe this place, rude staff, dirty room, patio is more like an emergency exit onto a busy road, just a generally awful experience. The kids started out excited about this but when we had to wait hours for the room to be ready in an 80 degree lobby they lost excitement quickly. The food is terrible, the beer... More

I've been to great wolf lodge in grapevine about four times. I always have an enjoyable stay, the waterpark is a little Bit over crowded but it's not too bad. I would reccomend taking your own towel inside the waterpark though because they don't let you take the park owned towels outside of the park so you're freezing while walking... More

We stayed here for one night of our vacation since the rooms are outrageous this time of year. 350.00. My kids wanted a bunked room and loved it. It was clean but what really made me happy was all of the workers that we dealt with while we were there. We had a small water spillage problem when we first... More

This was our third trip to GWL and it was just a good as ever. I am constantly amazed at the attentiveness of the lifeguards. These "kids" are always scanning the areas for issues and they react to anything (like poo in the kiddie pool) with calmness and obviously rehearsed signals. The lines for the rides go smoothly and quickly.... More

Nice property, room was clean and big enough for 4. We had a kids camp room which features a "tent" with bunk beds for the kids. The tent has it's own tv. Our bed was comfortable and the ac kept our room cool. Even in the 110 degree Texas heat. Room also has a microwave and mini fridge. The water... More
