We stayed for one night at Great Wolf on 8/15-8/16 in room 6026
Check in was quick and efficient. Wristbands that serve as room keys and room charge on the property were great. Makes it very convenient to not need to carry anything around with you. No complaints here.
Barely above average. Think older style business class hotel and you are close. I think for $500 per night, I was certainly expecting more. It was clean, but definitely showed its age. Shower dripped constantly, sink is in the bedroom, and oddly the vanity is taller than standard vanities - I say oddly because this is a hotel for kids...mine had to stand on a chair to wash their hands.
We only did the Moose Buffet... it was overpriced and average at best. Lots of variety, just not very good. Service was adequate.
The kids loved the story time and the dance party. The characters and theme of this place are a little bit vague and are kitschy at best. They have a large animatronic treehouse where the animals sing songs about conservation and mother nature, but I think the message is lost on most of the kids, albeit the shows were all crowded...
This is a kid place. There are kids EVERYWHERE. Certainly this is to be expected when going to a place like this. What I did NOT expect, however, is the number of unsupervised kids in the water park and playing the magiquest game. Many parents are using Great Wolf as the proverbial babysitter... not something I would ever do with mine, but know that going in. There are kids roaming the halls, screaming, running, fighting, playing, etc...
The water park is great and is well done! There are lifeguards who were working their rears off to keep the areas supervised. All the waterpark staff we encountered were very friendly and were great with the kids and the crowds.
The kids loved it. They had a blast. Our whole family really enjoyed the water park. The rest of the resort fell short of my expectations - primarily because of the cost. $500 per night is steep for a family of four, but I probably would've felt differently if the hotel and resort amenities warranted such a cost - unfortunately they just didn't. We could have stayed at a very nice hotel and attended any number of area water parks for the same or less money. I guess the main leg up here is the convenience of it. I am not sure if I could be talked into staying here again or not. I know the kids loved it, but I think they would've enjoyed any similar water park experience just as much.
