Sandusky,
Reviewed November 7, 2016

Staff was amazing! They were all great with kids and went above and beyond to make sure every one was having fun. The lifeguards were beyond attentive and caring. I have never seen such amazing customer service. My family enjoyed this weekend trip more than our Disney vacation.

We went up for one night (Saturday) for my nephews birthday. My older children (7, 5 and 17 months)had a ball at the water park! It was a bit much for me though with the baby who is into everything. I also thought maybe some more security measures could have been put into place. There are many entrances out of...

I like to take my grandkids here for their birthdays. Everything about it makes them feel special. The staff is amazing and all of the activities are top notch. There is so much to do you will never be bored, even story time, wolf walks, and crafts. The water park is incredible, especially for ten and unders. It is small...

Upon entering room, I noticed that the floor appeared to not have been swept as there were peanuts and m&m candy on it. Also, there were cigarette butts on the floor of the patio, wasn't too concerned with that as we didn't use the patio. Housekeeping came right away to sweep. Was given a $50 credit on my bill for...

Great waterpark and activities for kids. Check in was quick and the staff was very friendly and effecient. Our room had a loft, fireplace and 2 queen beds. It was ready for us at 1 pm even though we were told checkin was at 4 pm. It's close to shopping and food venues.

I will start out by saying check in was pretty easy. We arrived at around 4:30 on a Saturday and there were only two people in line. The front desk staff was very courteous and informative. They informed us of the lot to park in that was closest to our room. (There is a $29 resort fee) Parking was also...

My family and I went to Great Wolf for a nice mini-vacation. It was great!! My boys are 10 and 4 and there were all sorts of water activities for both of them. We were there for 2 and a half days and that was just perfect. Any longer and I think we would have gotten bored and any shorter...

Great Wolf Lodge was my son's idea. He had a super time and that was our goal, so overall my expectations were met. I was't impressed with the food on our first evening (Told we'd face a long wait at the grill because they had people with reservations coming. Sat in the bar area. Bartender was really nice, but the...
