The effort to keep up this recreational property has been put on the back burner. The facilities have not been maintained, the staff has been reduced putting children at risk, room maintenance has been neglected. For what you pay per night you would think they would maintain the facility. Very disappointing. We have stayed at this facility many times over... More

Surprised my grandkids with a trip to Great Wolf. We didn't realize there were so many ways to get wet! Cost wise it may seem spendy, but after you take in all the amenities and water park time, it's reasonable. The rooms are quiet despite all the families there. The staff are friendly and helpful. We are definitely going to... More

The 2nd trip we did was terrible customer service. Our 3rd trip was better, staff was a lot friendlier. I just didn't like how run down the park was, lots of rust. The carpets need changed out. I do like the different events they host throughout each day, the story time in the evening and morning was nice. I thought... More

I took my two children and two friends last week. The check in was fine and our room wasn't ready so we just went to the pool. Of course my 8 year olds wanted the Magic game, and that was the biggest waste of $100 i have ever spent. Wow, what a joke! The room was huge, we got a... More

Beds are REALLY uncomfortable. We baca kids cabin room. The kids cabin beds are REALLY short. Bathroom has no fan and the lighting in the whole room is really dim. Water park is clean. Needs more chairs. We were there on a Monday and had a really hard time finding 2 chairs to use.

We have been here a few times and every time we have a lot of fun. The waterpark is a blast and the rest of it is basically a hotel for kids. Last time we were there it was kind of a bummer because they had to close the wave pool for a long time because I think somebody threw... More

We stayed 2 families for 2 nights here for the water park and magic games. We had to pay an extra $200+ for 3 kids to play the magic games with fees, wands, toppers, etc. only to have the game not work at every step. We spent half of our visit going to the Magic shop getting them to reset... More

This place needs to be cleaned and updated! The pool area is way too dirty and seems to be falling apart. The lobby chair cushions have hole in them. There are huge open trash bins in the hallways that stink and are hard to get anions. Not sure the life guards are happy or paying attention. But we have fun... More

Travelled here with a 4 year old and an 8 year old. We had a great time. The hotel was fully booked and it certainly felt that way. We were on the 8th floor closest to the elevator. It was fine and not a problem. The room was dusty and certainly looked like just a surface cleaning was done. The... More

We do enjoy GWL and when my friend and I decided to take some of our teenaged kids for a mini vacation we knew this was the place! Though this trip we found many of the lifeguards were not on the same page. You would have one being so strict to having to have a verbal "yes" from each person... More
