We stayed at Great Wolf Lodge a couple of weeks ago as part of a very large group staying there for a city-wide hockey tournament. It's a huge resort, so I was impressed at how well they handled the flow of people. Check-in was flawless despite a number of people who were checking in at the same time. A line formed right behind me, so that might have caused delays for others, but I got right in.
We had a Lone Wolf Condo, which is basically an expanded one room hotel room. There were two queen beds and a sofa bed in a part of the room separated by a partial barrier. The bathroom was huge, with two sinks. All spotlessly clean. Our bed was not very comfortable and could use a new mattress. Noise from the hallway was kept down because there are actually two doors to get into the room. There's a larger two bedroom condo adjoining that can be linked into what would be a 3 bedroom condo if you rented both rooms. The two bedroom condos are very large, with a real bar to sit at and a full sized fridge. We were visited friends in a standard room and it was fine, but for the extra upfee, I'd stay in the Lone Wolf Condo next time, though it is a bit of a hike from the core of the hotel vs. the regular rooms.
We had dinner at the bar. A good selection of sandwiches, burgers, etc and a few salads and entrees. Not much was on the healthy side, but it all tasted pretty good. Service was prompt despite many diners being in a rush to get to a hockey game. We also had muffins from the coffee bar for breakfast and it was all very good, if somewhat pricey. There are many many restaurants nearby, a good number within walking distance. A short drive away is the Cheese Factory Restaurant, which was an excellent vegetarian eatery. There were lots of other restaurant choices within the hotel, but we wanted to eat a bit healthier and save some money too.
The water park was awesome. Very large, very clean and given the size, very well policed. Our son said he saw a lifeguard pull a little girl out of the wave pool and he said it was done very quickly (the girl looked way too young to be in the pool by herself we thought when he pointed her out later).
The hotel is about a mile from the Poppy Waterman ice rink. There was lots of traffic due to construction on Route 12, and you had to detour as many crossroads were blocked off.
We hope to come back just to enjoy the hotel and area.
