The facility is very nice. Lots of fun for all ages. Everything is expensive. Breakfast buffet is $15 per adult, $8 for ages 4 to 10 (10 if remembered right), free for 3 and under. It was a great buffet with lots to choose from. A pizza, large salad, and 2 liters of pop was $33. The water park is... More

Our family arrived on Monday afternoon. Check in was quick and painless, so was the parking. We entered through an excessive pigeon pooped and smelly front entryway. Once inside, it was inviting and my 3 kids were excited, being able to see the water park got them ready to swim!! We made our way to our room- a standard 2... More

We took the kids there for a couple nights during their Spring Break. They had a blast - and so did we! The water park was a lot of fun, they had enough rides/pools to keep everyone in the family entertained (ages 6-14). It was busy, but the lines we're not too long. It was very clean and well maintained.... More

The trip itself was ok, like other reviews you have to be prepared for overpriced activities and overpriced and under whelming food. Our family stayed in a Grand Bear Suite which was a room that fit all 8 of us. We were close to the elevator (which is not even worth waiting for it's so slow) on the 3rd floor... More

We took three boys, aged 4, 7, and 15 for a weekend to GWL. The two older boys had been there before, but the youngest and my husband and I had not. We were there during Spring Break, so it was understandably crowded and loud. We had a Wolf Den room so the little boys had their own space with... More

When you decide to book a stay at GWL you need to know what you are signing up for: a fun vacation for the kids. It will be crowded, loud, overpriced, mediocre quality, and none of the rules will be enforced. But, your kids will have a blast. As long as you can accept this and take it for what... More

We've been there for the Easter long weekend. There were probably over 1000 kids running 24/7 around the hallways everywhere. The rooms are noisy but otherwise OK. Long lineups for everything including Starbucks and water slides. I would definitely recommend going there during the week. And be prepared that you're not going there to relax. Hotel is noisy, beds are... More

I have been here many times and this will be the last. The place is a zoo with kids running around crazy and the water park is worse. The hot tub clearly states that children under 8 are not allowed, but when adults try to enjoy it they can look forward to 20 kids that are from 2 to 6... More

Our night Great wolf lodge was the worst night in my parenthood history. The beds are uncomfortable to start then wrapped in plastic and then covered in flat sheets that don't fit leaving the top where your hands rest (if your a tummy sleeper) and your feet resting on sticky plastic. Then add to it very little sound proofing so... More

We stayed two nights over Easter weekend in a Kid Cabin room. Our kids loved having their own cozy little space. Our room was ready when we checked in at 2:45. The kids had fun in the waterpark. It was busy, but not overwhelmingly so at any given time. Lots of lifeguards around. Kids were not always well supervised by... More
