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

Don't get your hopes up there are no wolves going down the water slides, but there is ice cream, not going down the water slides, people go down the water slides, not ice cream. I wish they made the garbage cans out of tin, but plastic is okay too. Oh and if the great wolf lodge is reading this you... More

It was are first visit to the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound. We had an amazing time there. We all felt so welcome by all the staff upon check in to check out. I would recommend this GREAT place to anyone. Can't wait for our next visit next year. Thanks Great Wolf Lodge! The Strobiki family :)

Hotel is huge, loud and chaotic (in a good way for kids). The rooms were very large and spacious. My kids loved the camping tent theme with the bunk beds. Other than the kids bunk area the rest of the room was very basic. Bring your own soap and shampoo for the water park. The water park is huge --... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. 2 children, 3 adults. Kids had fun,but there are a few things that I didn't like: - There are only 6 slides, so one day is probably enough to stay here. Other than that they have a wave pool and a water playground. There is also a toddler designated area. - One of the... More

This was our 2nd stay here. We stayed for one night with our 2 kids ages 12 and 14. You can use the water park the day you check in as well as the day you check out so we got 2 days worth of water park fun with our one night stay. The water park was fun. It is... More
