This was a nice stay for the kids. As part of Christmas it was nice to give a gift we could all enjoy. A nice place to stay with lots of kids activities to keep kids of every age busy. I was a bit disappointed in how many taxes are included in the cost of the lodge. I spent at...

We like to surprise our girls with a trip a couple times a year. Besides Disney, Great Wolf is the second favorite place! We really enjoy when they have holiday activities. Halloween and Christmas is the best time to go!

Very nice water park. Its on the expensive side. Can only go when they have deals. Food was good but you only get a little plate for high price. And having only 2 elevators kinda sucked because waiting all the time.

My children are apparently sensitive to the abundance of chemicals used to keep germs out. I understand the process, but both of my kids still have rashes 2 days later. This has happened previously, but not to the extent as this trip. We were prepared with lotions and baking soda to calm the skin along with frequent baths/showers. We arrived...

This was a nice get away. We live close enough that it is a quick hour drive to get to the resort, so we could arrive early enough to enjoy the check in day. The water park is clean and well attended and not to over packed. Water slide lines moved quickly and all of the lifeguards were right on...

Our fourth time returning to GWL! The staff is beyond helpful. The kids love the water park and Magiquest. Try to go midweek, the traffic is lower and it's easier for the kids in the water park. There's an in room fridge, so you can pack snacks for the little ones and never have to leave the property.

Our family of 6 had a fantastic time at the Traverse City location. Room was clean and large and the waterpark was a blast. Some people have said it is on the small side but we actually preferred it that way. We have two under two and two older teens. It was a lot easier to keep track of everyone...

My family and I loved Great Wolf Lodge-Traverse City. The room was clean and spacious. The water park was so fun and the life guards were very attentive. So many different restaurants within the hotel, we didn't have to leave for food. My husband couldn't find his swim trunks, but it was fine because the hotel has a store with...

This is a great location and waterpark but we booked 3 months in advance, 5 rooms, so our extended family could hang out together. Our rooms were not ready for 1 hour and 45 minutes after we got there at 4pm check in time and they were all over the resort. The woman I reserved with said we would all...

My family loved all parts of the trip!! The food was priced at a fair price point. The water park was perfect for kids between 2-12 years old. The staff was attentive and friendly. All in all, a great time!!
