1st time visitors to celebrate our son's 6th birthday (Sun/Mon.) Water park was great!! Planned on playing MagiQuest, which would have been a lot better if there weren't so many quests down, due to malfunctioning boxes. Managed to drop $70 in about 30 mins. at the arcade, so plan ahead on spending some coin in there, if you have a... More

We have been planning a trip to GWL for years, and finally the opportunity presented itself. After booking the stay, I came to trusty trip advisor to check out current reviews and was suddenly very apprehensive about the stay. The reviews seemed to be consistently negative!! Always one to make the best of things, we forged ahead, feeling at least... More

This was our first trip to Great Wolf Lodge. My husband and I are foster parents and wanted to do something special for the kids for their birthdays. I emailed a manager at the lodge to see if there were any specials available for foster parents (especially since FPAWS has their conference there annually). I exchanged emails with the manager...

Very nice staff and they got us in our room real quick. Has great parking and it is free. The water park is indoor and very warm so you wont be cold. They do have restaurants on site but if you want something else decent you will have to do some driving because there out in the middle of nowhere.

The rooms are too expensive and all the attractions are a very expensive add on. The waterpark is not enough to fill the time but anything else costs a small fortune per child. If we weren't nickled and dimed to death it might have been a pleasant trip. As it is, I don't recommend for anyone on a regular iincome.

We recently stayed one night at the lodge. This was our 3rd visit and as every other time it was enjoyable. The room was spacious but not fancy. We stayed in the Cabin room which has a King, Sofa, fireplace and a cabin with 3 twin beds for the kids. The sofa was broken and not very comfortable to sleep... More

We stayed one night at the Great Wolf Lodge and our whole family had a great time. We knew one night wouldn't be enough, but it was a trial run this trip. They had just completed 4 days of renovations before we arrived, so the place seemed clean and nice. No complaints there. The water park was super warm and... More

A background, we are foster parents (with the hope of adopting!) to a 4-year old boy and 7-year old girl. This was their first ever actual 'vacation', and our fir-ever vacation with kids. The Great Wolf Lodge is all about the kids. The room appointments are 2-3 star(compared to other hotels), but the themed rooms (separate "wolf den" or "camp"... More

What an experience, of course it was loud, busy with a lot of children on the loose. Everything but the water park was an additional fee, they have figured out how to charge for everything and use the youngster to make sure you pay. Food choices were very limited, and prices high. Our family suite was dark with an awkward... More

Our family of 5 went to great wolf lodge from Sep. 5 to 7 staying in room 2027. We had a great time. The kids loved the waterpark and we thought the restaurants and food was good. We couldn't understand the negative reviews of the food, and would definitely recommend pre-purchasing the breakfast if you go after reading the rest... More
