So great I thought that my whole family should go back for Christmas as our families only Christmas gift to each other. However, now I am rethinking ever visiting again.

My boyfriend reserved a standard two-queen room for the two of us and my kid siblings as a birthday gift to me. It was a fantastic trip with fun for all four of us. The water park alone sells the stay, but adding the arcade, the many restaurants, the great rooms, and the close proximity to a little convenience store... More

We went for a one night stay for my grandson's birthday. Nice thing is you have access to the water park at 1 pm the day of check in, even though check in is at 4 we had our room by 1;30. The other nice thing is you have access to water park until 9 pm the day you check... More

If you have small kids and live nearby this is a must go. The price for the booking seems very high, but for what you get it is not that high. We got a suite for ~ 240$, with full water park access for 2 days. The water park is a lot of fun, with areas that even my 6... More

If you take your kids to the Great Wolf Lodge, you should know well in advance what you are getting yourself into. In simple terms it's expensive and packed with kids. Check in was quick and easy on a Friday afternoon, and the staff was helpful, providing info about the facility. We had a Family Suite which was nice, basic... More

First of all, staying at this property is not cheap, but it is totally worth it. The water park was awesome! My son totally loved it. There were lifeguards everywhere, so I didn't need to worry overly. In side the hotel, they had the Magic Quest. You get a wand and visit different floors of the hotel to activate different... More

I highly recommend the Great Wolfe Lodge. The rooms were very clean, staff was friendly, indoor water park was a blast. For food, there is a Starbucks in he lobby and a couple other restaurants there too. Good food,prices and huge portions. There is also a few food places right down the street too.
