All 9 of us enjoyed our time at the Lodge. The kids (10, 13, 14 & 16) loved the water slides and spent hours there. In fact, they spent so much time there, they didn't have time for the quests. Our rooms were spacious, and the microwave and fridge were appreciated by the choosier eaters in the group. I would... More

We have been going here for a few years now. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The Atmosphere is excellent. The entertainment for kids is good. But I have noticed that the maintenance and cleanliness of the water park has been falling. I was there two days and on the way up the stairs to the HOWLING TORNADO I saw... More

This is the 2nd time I took my family to Great Wolf Lodge in Washington State. The last time was back in 2008 when the Lodge was fairly new. This visit was mediocre. We only spent one night there but played in the indoor water park a full day and a half which was ok because it was a last... More

We stayed for one night with our 6,2 and 1 year old and there was something for everyone. The facility was super clean, and the staff was super friendly. We rented two rooms as we traveled with family and both rooms were nice and clean, roomy and set up nicely for large families. I highly recommend renting a kids camp... More

After hearing and seeing the ads for this place, it looked like fun and I was ready to go. But when I checked out the prices, I changed my mind. So when I had an opportunity to attend a conference here at a reduced price, I grabbed my chance. The food at the conference was fresh, plentiful and delicious, but... More

We stayed here with our 6-year-old for 1 night in the Kid Kamp suite. If you are paying $300+ for 1 night, its worth paying an extra $30-40 for the themed room for your kiddo! I mean, the kid is why you are here in the first place. I was impressed at how clean everything was. The room was clean... More

I had heard good things about the GWL in Grand Mound Washington, however nothing could prepare us for the experience of this hotel/waterpark. The Good: 1) Easy access to the Waterpark and the lifeguards were well trained and alert. I felt safe letting my kids run free and experience all the water park had to offer. 2) When we got... More
