“Fun for kids and adults alike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We won a one night stay here and went in the summer with a friend and their daughter. We returned again in the winter. It is great in the summer and winter. It is so amazing for kids, you can see them light up when they arrive and enter the lobby. It is also great for adults. They serve alcoholic cocktails by the waterpark and have a spa for some alone time. The waterpark is so much fun, wave pool, rides, an entry from inside to swim to an outdoor hottub which we loved in the winter. During the summer there is an outdoor pool. The rooms are clean, so much fun (one had bunk beds with individual tvs and playstations for the kids). The lobby is so cute and the staff makes it so much fun. Cant wait to return. I didnt feel overwhelmed and that the kids overtook this place. Night time they had storytime for the kids in pjs with cookies. If you live in the area you have to do this once, especially if you have kids it is something they will always remember.

Room Tip: Many different types of rooms to choose from and each one has its own charm.

This was our first trip to Niagara Falls and we booked at the Great Wolfe lodge because of previous reviews and we were not disappointed. We have a 7 month old child and we found this hotel and water park was perfect for us. We had a great day at the Falls and the tourist area and spent an entire day at the resort and water park. The park has a bunch of different water slides and smaller pools for children. We also enjoyed the lodge and how they cater to families with their nightly story times and family events.

If we return to the area, we would definitely stay there again. I'm trying to push my sister to bring my nephews to the resort as they love water parks.

Although my kids are one and two years old, they had a great time. The rooms are okay but for the price, you would expect more. I would rate this as very good but it is only getting an average rating because it is so loud! You can hear everything in the halls in your room. What I hate the absolute most is that they have loud speakers in the halls with a loud voice advertising things about the lodge! It is too loud and I hate it and it really pisses me off. The food is good, expensive. The waterpark is great. Many fun activities and things for the kids, even small ones. My older nieces and nephews are here too and love it a lot. It is worth it for the kids but beware that if you have a young one napping, they will be woken up by that loud voice in the halls. We are not paying this kind of money to be hearing advertising everywhere we go!!!!!!

Room Tip: IF you have babies that need a nap, ask to be away from the loud speakers that advertise.

This was our third time at GWL and I had to tell everyone on how great of a resort this place really is. The waterslides are great for all ages from little slides for young kids all the way up to the Vortex and Rapid Run for all ages. You have to be 48" tall for Rapid Run and Grizzly Falls but all others above 42". They have indoor and outdoor hot tubs for adults only, which is a good touch if you want a little break from the kids. The outdoor pool is great for sunning and having a cold one while the kids swim. We stayed in room 4007 and I would highly recommend this room for the view from your balcony and the easy access to the less used elevator at the end of the hallway. Odd number rooms face the outdoor pool and the 4th floor is the top of the hotel. I want to thank the hotel for another great stay and my kids are already talking about next year. Thanks Again.

We took a family trip to Niagara Falls and through trip advisor we found out there was a Great Wolf Lodge. It was much cheaper than the state prices. It was $35o for a family of five with tickets to the park and hotel. Check in was a breeze and you can use the water park at 12:00 on the day of your arrival. Our room was ready and off we went. There was plenty of rides for the kids and they loved doing them. We ate at the restaurant for dinner. It was a buffet and was fine. We would def go back.

We brought our grandkids for Father's day, stayed at family suite which is just right for 2 adults & 3 kids. We stayed at the 1st floor with patio close to parking lot, it was good as we don;t have to drag the luggages with us, my husband just took them before we checked out. The water park is good as each age groups has specific area they can stay or play. The wave pool is a good bonus. The lifeguards are so careful to make sure they can assist any kids in need while in the pool. The downsides are the extra activities like the Adventures are expensive & the food as well. Otherwise it's a good place to enjoy a week-end with family.

Room Tip: room on the ist floor close to parking was a good place to park your car, you don't have to drag...

We went to Great Wolf Lodge for the Father's Day weekend. We stayed in a family suite which is spacious and clean. The waterpark has Kiddie Slides for my 3-year-old. Also, the Wooly Mammoth is fun for the whole family. We can slide down on a raft with our 3-year-old. There are other activities for kids.

We also purchased the dining options ($45+tax/person and free for our 3-year-old) including buffet dinner, buffet breakfast (with character) and lunch. The food is decent and it saves us the hassles to go somewhere else to eat.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back.
