I am on the fence about this place. It was my first visit with family members who had been there before. We arrived early and our room was already ready for us, so we changed and headed down to the park. Wow was it loud and crowded. I've never seen so many people in one spot in my life, but... More

We stayed a Saturday in March and were disappointed with the entire experience. We stayed on the first floor and had no shower pressure and cold showers at both 7pm and 7am. The alarm clock was busing throughout the night at random times till I unplugged it and the room has been "picked up and the linen changed" but not... More

Quality: for what you pay for a single night at GWL, there should be a higher quality product. This hotel caters to children, but they need to remember that adults have to bring/pay for those children. Yes, there is a spa, but based on the quality of everything else, I would be apprehensive to try it. Service: We tried the... More

Summary: Stayed 3 days - probably a day too long. Hotel was nice - but really really busy. Kidz Cabin worked great for my family of 5 - was clean and big - but shower lacked water pressure and made bathing a problem. Food at buffet was good - and probably best place to eat at near by. Waterpark was... More

First, I will start with the fact that I only came because of a company event in the banquet halls. I would not likely have come here on my own accord because of the price. I go to a hotel to rest and sleep in between, this was more of sensory overload! Second, realizing that this is a kid-focused theme... More

We usually stay at Great Wolf Lodge at least annually, and this was definitely not our best stay. Check-in at 3:00 took over an hour. The lock on the bedroom door was broken, allowing our child to walk in unexpectedly at 11pm. I was told the Manager was out, and compensated with a 2pm check out. I reached the Manager... More

After wanting to try Great wolf for some time - finally took the plunge. Showed up at 1pm as you can use the water park before you check in. Huge lineup to register but offered arm bands and call you later when room is ready. We were ready to do this and had swim suits ready to go. would recommend... More

This is a very nice place to stay. Our room was clean and had very nice accommodations. The hotel in general has a very nice feel to it and a lot to do. The indoor waterpark was enough to keep us entertained for a few hours, but it better suited for young kids. I really enjoyed staying here and will... More

Great Wolf Lodge is an amazing place to spend time with family. An indoor waterpark and quests for kids and adults is fun to do. The only bad side to this is that wait times at rides are kinda long. Magiquest, Shadowquest are some activities there.

We had a Blast, they allow you to enjoy the waterpark starting at 1pm until your room is ready, we were able to check in around 3pm *check in is at 4pm* Great Wolf has tons of entertainment for the kids, only part I dislike is the 11am check out time
