We have stayed at Great Wolf Lodge many times over the years, and this was one of our best stays. My son is now thirteen and we've been coming here since he was a toddler. What is nice for us is that even though he's outgrown some of the activities, there are still many things here he enjoys doing. For... More

Water park holds their attention for a short time and the pool isn't big enough for adults to enjoy. Dunking donuts not a great option for breakfast but is on site. Pizza and ice cream place fun, however pizza isn't the greatest. Ice cream and carmel apples great.

July 2016, beautiful weather, perfect week, but we booked Great wolf lodge just in case the weather was bad. After spending all day at the National Cherry Festival, we checked in. I booked "Kid Cabin" room with 3 bunk beds on the TOP FLOOR over the internet. Remember this. Lady behind the counter, Danielle, very polite, checked us is. She... More

My family is less than three months fresh off a trip to Disney World the week that we visit Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City, with our 6 and 4 year-old boys, so perhaps echoes of Mickey Mouse are still ringing in our ears but we can’t help but notice the concerted efforts to emulate the Best in the Business...

Came up for one night with my two kids (6 & 8) and my husband. We booked the room with the one queen and bunk beds in the separate little room for kids. We had a balcony and fire place. The room was very spacious. However, the decor and furniture are very dated. The patio chairs on the balcony are... More

We stayed here to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Came up for the weekend to enjoy the waterpark, nice rooms, and MagiQuest. We've been to this hotel before and knew what to expect; it met/exceeded all of our expectations. Great hotel. Great waterpark. Had not done MagiQuest before but this too was great fun for entire family, and provided plenty of... More

We enjoyed our stay. Staff is enthusiastic and welcoming. Even the maids encouraged the children to howl in the halls.Our group ate in the banquet rooms for all our meals. Staff was patient with all the children and kind and chatty. We loved the water park. On our 12 YO's BD we indulged in mini-golf and the rock climbing wall.... More

We recently stayed here with our two young children. Everyone had a blast!! We have stayed at other water park hotels and have been disappointed- that is NOT the case here!! Everything was clean, well-maintained and themed with taste. Our room was large and they had a pack and play with a clean sheet in the room waiting for us... More

My kids have been begging me to take them to a Great Wolf Lodge for a while now. After reviewing the prices and the various "fees" they tack on, I came to the realization that it's like Disney, you just have to expect it to be pricey. If you expect it to be cheap, you are going to the wrong... More

We stayed 2 nights at Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City and had a mini-vacation we will never forget! Immediately upon arrival we were greeted with a smiling and energetic "pack!" Our room was super fun- we got the Wolf Den suite! Our kids were stoked the whole time! The water park was awesome- very clean and had a variety... More
