Great time! One night was fine given overall price. Kids loved it. Nice to be at hotel and water park. Played the wand magi game-not sure that was worth it but will roll with it. Dinner is $18 per adult at restaurant, other options off site. Would come again

It would be nice if they charged a normal price for the hotel rooms as they aren't anything special. Waterpark helps with the cost but honestly that should be a bonus. The kids enjoyed themselves but my budget didn't The restaurant inside wasn't great either.

This is the second time we come to GWL. It is always fun to come here with the kids. This time, we are blessed with a complementary upgrade to KidCabin® Suite. This makes it super special. My daughter simply counted four events in GWL as the top ten greatest moments in our one-week family road trip. One of the good... More

Our family of 5 spent more than $800 spending one a single night at the Great Wolf Lodge. The drive south from Bellingham on a Friday afternoon was simply unbearable. What would have been a 3 or 4 hour dive turned into a 7 hour stop and go torture due to solid traffic jam that began just south of Seattle... More

Staying here right now and we are quite disappointed. Check it wasn't too bad, and it is nice that you can play in the water park before your room is ready. Can't say it is anything special, no better than what we have at home. The place is way too crowded and only 3 elevators, located in one small area... More

The cost of what you spend versus what you receive is my major issue. I have stayed here three times and have never gotten out under $1,200 for two nights for me and my daughter. She is old enough now that I talked her into going to the American girl store in Seattle instead. We stayed at the downtown Hyatt... More

Yes, this is our 5th time (4th spring break trip). I can't believe I've subjected myself to this place 5 times. Ugh! Kids love it, though. This will likely be our last trip. Here's what's new (for us): This time we stayed in a Kid Cabin Suite for two nights, which has the bunkbeds, but also an extra bed (so... More

This was my fourth time there and I can say that things aren't the same. The wave pool closed twice while I was there because of puking kids, but he we heard from another guest he saw it close 4x during his stay. There were many toddler/babies with no swim diapers on so you know they were just peeing in... More

We are a family of five and stayed in a Wolf Den room comfortably. There was a wet coffee stain in the middle of the floor when we checked in but they came and steam cleaned it quickly. Resort also comped us breakfast and late checkout. Overall the experience was good. As with most of the other kid focused places... More

We stayed at the GWL for one night as a spring break treat for our kids (15,14,13,11). Stayed in the grizzly bear suite which was fantastic, but pricey. Water park was excellent, love the amount of lifeguards and friendliness of all staff. Great layout. Kids also enjoyed the magiquest game. Negatives was the expense - didn't mind paying 500 /...
