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

We have been to Great Wolf Lodge four times now and will take the kids back as often as we can. Yes, the prices are a bit high, but the returns in relaxation, fun, and kid satisfaction is worth it. Of course it depends on how you plan and manage your stay. The rooms are large and comfortable. The housekeeping... More

Standard GWL location and amenities... although they didn't have some of the larger, more modern slides/attractions. We've been to the Williamsburg location several times the past couple years and the Traverse City location is lacking comparatively. Also, the cleanliness of the room could have been improved.

As others have mentioned the price is okay if you have discounts/groupon/ a deal. We recently stayed at the Great Wolf in the Dells so we thought we would take a quick weekend getaway to Traverse City having never been there. Check in was quick and we were even given a choice of floor we wanted to be on which... More

We have a great experience! We got a free upgrade that made sleeping arrangements easier. Also our toddler has food allergies, we ate at the grill and the chef came out to take his order and then personally delivered it. They were very accommodating, they changed their cooking process for him. Very clean and efficiently ran. We will be back... More

We decided to go to Great Wolf in Traverse City for a special day for my daughter who was turning 4. Within the first 30 minutes we found two spiders in the room and a cheeto on the floor! When I called the front desk to request a new room, I was told that we were in "the best room... More

As expected, our kids had a wonderful time. However, our kids have also had a wonderful time at a hotel waterparks that cost half as much. Don't get me wrong, Great Wolf does a great job: The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is helpful and friendly, and the water park is a lot of fun. The kids thought... More
