My kids love Great Wolf Lodge & I love the Traverse City location. The lifeguards are hyper vigilant, so I felt comfortable enough to take my baby to change a diaper while my 7 & 8 year olds played in the pool. The rooms are cleaner than I've found in other Great Wolf properties, and the staff is friendly in...

Make sure you don't have babies who need to sleep before 11pm. The beds aren't supportive. You are so exhausted the next day that you don't even want to stay until the waterpark opens at 10am. Our room was across from the bowling alley. Bad first time. Too much $$$ for what you get.

Book at least three nights! So much to do! The water park is amazing and the arcade and bowling alley offer different options for family fun. Magi quest is also a blast! We'll definitely return here. Great family lodge!

The staff was helpful and friendly. The waterpark and magic quest were great. The only downside was the extremely soft mattress. I prefer a very firm mattress and that made sleeping difficult. Other than that it was a fantastic experience. I would definately recommend getting the paw pass if you are bringing kids.

Seriously the indoor water park is top notch. My kids are 8, 13 and 16. They can spend all day there and never get tired of it. It is a bit loud with an average of 83db by my meter, which is close to hearing loss range. Wi-Fi delivers close to 10Mb up and down but has some latency issues...

GREAT!!!! This is a great family resort and would recommend it. Just wish it was a little cheaper to try the themed rooms. The kids loved the magiquest game as well as the Clubhouse adventure game as well

We had a great stay with our kids. They do a great job with entertainment and having fun with the kids. Water slides were fun for myself as well. I think Great Wolf is fun for all ages - mine were 3 and 9 for this trip and they both had plenty to do

This was our first visit to Great Wolf. We had a great experience and our 6 yo son had a blast in the waterpark and doing Magic quest. We would definitely return to Great Wolf Lodge. The location of the lodge is close to main roads, restaurants, shopping. The staff provided us with a listing of local restaurants and directions...

Been here many times with the kids. This time it was run down, dirty and restaurant menu changed - not for the better. It was also beautiful outside in APRIL and no where to sit outside - besides outside the pool gates in the dirt. Not happy. Kids were even not happy. We will not be back.
