This is my 3rd time staying at Great Wolf Lodge but my first time staying in the "off season." Check in took forever. I have no idea why. We got there around 2:00pm on a Sunday and the check out line was wrapped around the lobby. We had done an online check in the previous night so once we finally... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay with my family and we all had fun...but it's with mixed reviews. This place was sooooo overpriced for my family and (sad to say) the value was just not there... I have been to other waterpark resorts in the country and this one was for sure the smallest and most expensive. The... More

No this is not the hotel / tourism tax, this their own hidden fee they tacked onto the cost PER NIGHT. "Thank you for staying with us, now thats an extra $40 / night" - how does that sound do you? You know if the room was more $$ at the time of booking, I would still make the booking... More

So after reading all the reviews I have to admit I was a little nervous. We must have hit the jackpot with this stay. The resort was half empty (or so it seemed) so there was no lines anywhere. We did the online check-in and when we did get to the resort around 230 we walked right up to the... More

I knew we were in for a unique experience when I walked in the entrance and saw all the guests wearing the complimentary wolf ear headbands! Next I saw the children darting around and activating the many objects with their electronic swords. This is not a normal hotel! It ain't Disneyland, but the kids loved it! We brought 10 kids...

We had a one night stay in a simple family suite. Check in was fast, easy, and super friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. Lifeguards were amazingly thorough and safe. It's more exhausting fun than I would have expected but the kids were happy. The only thing that was unappealing to me was that the 2nd floor arcade to... More

Have stayed at this Great Wolf a couple times. This last visit was even better than the last......they had new activities around the resort like a huge rope climing/zip line course outside, 4D video game, glow in the dark mini golf....etc. We stayed in the Kids Cabin room, which had a mini log cabin inside the room that had a...

Family of four went for the night and it was worth every penny. There's 6 water slides, wave pool and a couple play structures. We all had a great time. When you get hungry try the pizza it was great.
