If you know what you are getting into, GWL is great. But it is frenetic all the time, so adults have to be ready for the experience. The indoor waterpark is the central attraction and it is really amazing. We went with a 4 year old and an 18 month old, and they both loved it. The littler one spent... More

My wife and I just returned from visiting the Great Wolf Lodge with a 2 and 3 year old. We waited in a zig zag TSA style line for about 15 minutes in a line to check in and were told our room wasn't ready yet. (Check-in is 400pm, we were an hour early). We received water park access and... More

If you ever need to take the kids to the pool and still have chance to relax at the bar and not worry about drinking and driving, this is where you need to be this summer! Lodging and Pool entrance are all included in the stay.

To start with we booked a whirlpool fireplace room & ever though the rate was stupid high, $400 for 1 night, it was where my son wanted to go for his birthday so I booked it. The day we are supposed to check in, I get an email showing a special price of $259 so of course I want that... More

My daughter had the time of her life at this lodge. As for mommy, not so much! I am not impressed with the customer service. The front desk assumed that all guests have been there before and did not bother trying to explain where everything is and what guests can do. I have to make multiple trips to front desk... More

Although I totally LOVE the idea of this place, for the second time, I was less than excited about our experience. My husband and I took our kids here back in March. After visiting I received an e-mail about doing a survey. I expressed my unhappiness with the overall dinginess of the hotel. Tons of dust in the lobby on... More

No bed bugs, service in the restaurant much better at night than in the morning. Food on the buffet was hot and delicious at night. Again morning needs a little work. Order an omlette, not the pre cooked eggs. When ordering coffee, I shouldn't have to ask for creamer. The rooms are worn and need work. The wallpaper was peeling... More

This is the place to stay with kids! From the moment we checked in until the time we left, the staff was so friendly. We were greeted with cheerfulness, even though we came in a little late. We were upgraded to a Kid Camp. This room was so big: a family with 5 kids could have stayed in it and... More
