Spent week of Spring Break here with 2 adults and 5 kids ranging in age from 3-13. We had a 2 bedroom deluxe unit which was a great space for our group. Was a bit of a hike to the waterpark areas but nice to be in an area where there wasn't so much hall traffic all day and night.... More

This was our third time staying at the Wilderness Glacier Canyon Lodge. Previously we've stayed in a 2 bedroom, a 4 bedroom presidential, and this time was a 3 bedroom. Our family is a family of four with a 6 yr old son and my daughter turned 4 on the trip. The units have always been clean without odor or... More

Booked 2 nights after spring break because of our 2.5yr old daughter. We were never told some of the indoor water parks would be closed for maintenance. The guy at the front desk indicated the calendar on their website was updated the week before with the closers. We had already booked our rooms, vacations scheduled at work and day care... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with a full kitchen and living area with a Murphy bed. It was on the first floor near entrance 1. We were pretty close to the skywalk (which was convenient). The room was clean and well-appointed. I wish we had brought napkins or paper towels. We ate a lot of meals in the... More

This was a typical spring break trip. Was not prepared for the 20 minute walks to almost everything. Check in was quick and our room was ready early. We were on the 3rd floor which was semi quiet. Did have an issue the last 2 days there. Had some very loud people get the room above us and had to... More

We have stayed here before and returned to celebrate our son's birthday with his friends. It was spring break week, so very crowded! The two bedroom deluxe models are beautiful and spacious. They have a full kitchen so we made all meals in the room. Very clean rooms and nice bathrooms with a Jacuzzi in the master. The front desk... More

Went there with family and decided to take the tour and listen to what they had to say about the property as far as sales, etc. They said it would take 2 hours. It took 3 +! The first lady was nice but then the "closer" came in and she was so nasty I could not believe it. By the... More

Glacier Canyon Lodge was VERY clean. We only spent one night, but enjoyed 2 days at the waterparks (I will do a separate review for them). This review is for the Lodge only. Anyway, our room was ready way before the 4pm check in. I thought that was just fantastic. The room was clean and very nice. We were pretty... More

The Dells--great vacation destination. We thought. If Wilderness Resort is full don't bother booking Glacier Lodge. Although they're connected by a walkway, be prepared for a looong hike any waterpark along with elevators up or down. Elevators are slow, tiny and there's always someone waiting. Once you make it to any of the waterparks, good luck finding a table or... More

We decided last minute to head to the Dells for a couple of days. We've stayed at the Wilderness before and wanted to again bit they were booked. But Glacier Canyon was open and about $50 cheaper with all the same amenities. I was nervous over having to shuttle around but it turned out to be great. We simply called... More
