This is a wonderful enclosed water park and hotel. There are several restaurants within the hotel, gift shops, and cool projects available for young kids to participate in. It is expensive in the sense that everything in-house is at tourist prices. You can purchase a meal plan for your stay which provides discounted costs or you can simply eat outside... More

Don't compare this to Disneyland - it has a long way to go before they get that honour. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 kids (7&9). We stayed in a Kid Camp room which had 1Q, 1 sofabed & bunks for the kids. The concept of GWL is good but there is definite room for improvement before... More

Kim, the feedback from your recent stay at Great Wolf Lodge – Grand Mound is greatly appreciated and I have shared it with our Management team to follow-up on and review. I am deeply disappointed after reading through the “Bad” and “Ugly” portions of your review as the behavior you witnessed does not meet with the expectations we have set... More

While this was a fun adventure for my 6 & 9 year old boys, my husband & I were not hugely amused with all of the extra (non-water) events. I got an excellent deal on Groupon, otherwise I wouldn't have been thrilled with the value to fun ratio. Pros: excellent staff service (excluding the on-site Starbucks workers who were mostly...

This is not so much a hotel as an attraction that just happens to have rooms- similar to the MGM Grand in Vegas. It is an indoor waterpark with added restaurants, shops, conference rooms, and hotel wings. The place is designed to be kid-friendly and has a lot of animatronic decorations that talk or move. The only way to get... More

The family decided to take a vacation but stay in state and multple friends said that the lodge was fun and a good price. Well we arrived to an awesome bear themed room. The kids had gone crazy and said it was as fun as DisneyLand. It almost feels when you are here that you have came to an entire... More

I stayed here for three fun filled nights with my 14 year old daughter and 6 year old son and we had a blast from the moment we got there until the moment we left. I suggest that you purchase the add on packages when you make your reservation as I did, it saved a lot of money. The breakfast... More

Didn't tell me about the daily resort me, however I had read about it on my groupon. Beside a small Starbucks. Gave us our Kids Cabin room number and we were on our... More

We were at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound which is about an hour and 20 minutes from Seattle. I booked it when they had 20 percent off their room rates and got a room for $179 which included 2 queen beds and a sofa bed which was more than we needed for my husband and 5 year-old son.... More

I took my family of 4 to this place in April (spring break). We got an upgrade for $25/night so kids could sleep on bunk beds. The kids were so excited!!! The water activities are great, not much line either (even when there is one it moves fast). Decent food options at this place. My kids were too young to... More

Great wolf lodge is a great place for kids and adults. The water activities are amazing, the place is very safe and the food and bar are very nice. It can surely get crowded during weekends and holidays, but it is a sure spot for great fun. The prices can also be quite high during peak times, but it is... More
