“Second time here..just as enjoyable as the first time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Second time here with our two boys 3 and 5 years old. They love the water slides big and small. Enough to keep them occupied for hours. Loved the arcade. Food is good and not overly expensive for a resort such as this. Hotel room was a spacious size, beds were very comfy, we had one of the heating units not working right and a sink clogged but we called the next morning and maintenance came with 10 minutes of our call and had them both fixed with 30 minutes. Make sure not to miss the story time in the lobby at 8pm each night, our boys were disappointed to miss it when we came back late from a show and didn't make it in time. We'll definitely be back again.

Room Tip: When reserving a room request an upper level floor if you wish to have more quiet as its away from t...

First of all, let me say we went there with our two young adult sons. Was not sure if there would be enough for them to do as most of the web information looks like it is geared towards little kids. And while I would say this is the case, there was plenty of fun for adults as well. There are really great water slides of different levels including one super fast and large one that is only for the brave of heart with good stair climbing ability.

I want to comment on the online check-in. I was wondering if it would save time. While I can't say if it saved time at this hotel, since I have only used the online process there, I can say it was no faster then a regular check in at an efficient hotel. I still had to pull out a credit card and ID so not sure what it did save me. We were able to check out right from the room so that is always nice.

The facilities were first rate with the theme well carried out everywhere including our room. Lots of real (not fake, not plastic) wood used. It was near Christmas time (that is right Christmas, not holiday) and the decorations were fabulous. Even had a Christmas tree decorating contest among their various departments and they were all winners!

The staff were friendly and helpful in all the facilities.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Easy inside access from any room. Plenty of elevators.

We went there 3 kids, purchased them all the paw pass, great deal! We stayed a Thursday and Friday night, that gave us a lot more time than the single night last year. Magic Quest was really fun for the girls, there was a very nice pack member Belinda that was very helpful and really great! Story time in the lobby that was great, the girls thought it was neat there was more snow in the lobby than outside. I wish our stay didn't end!

This is a follow up to my previous review. During our last trip to the Dells in October, we spent one night at GWL. After reading my last review on TripAdvisor, GWL reached out to me and sent us a free night as well as wolf ears for my kids. I will give them an A+ for following up after we had major problems during our last stay. They even left a welcome letter from the manager in our kitchen during this stay.

Our experience this time was much different. During the off season, it was a very enjoyable and relaxing place to stay. The other days we were in the Dells, we spent running around visiting attractions. So we used the time at GWL to hang out, enjoy the facilities and relax. With the water park being limited to hotel guests, it wasn't crowded at all during this time of the year. For those concerned with water born pathogens, at last check, GWL uses Ozone as a secondary water treatment. I will spare you a chemistry lecture and just say that it's better and better for you in many ways.

Once again we had the 2 bedroom condo, except this time it was very clean and in good shape.

I think that during the off season, I will stay there again. It seems that we always have issues during the peak season. But in all fairness, it does get pretty crazy in the Dells during peak season and they did step up to make things right!

What a fantastic place to stay! The hotel is older but well maintained. It was clean, the staff was pleasant and the restaurant options were nice. We stayed one night and never left the hotel. The hotel is a bit pricey but it's worth the money because of the water park tickets. The water park has and indoor and outdoor pool. We stayed indoor since it's winter. The park was bigger than I expected. I have a two year old and there were multiple pools and slides he could play in. For the older kids and adults, there are different slides available. I highly recommend this hotel for a nice getaway!

Met other family members at Great Wolf for a long weekend. Had a couple different room styles and all were nice. Really have no negatives but have not been to a large waterpark before so nothing to compare it to. Nice layout and easy to watch the kids while in the park. Was worth the money as the whole family really enjoyed it.

Room Tip: The family had a couple different rooms so just pick what fits your family best
