We planned our stay from Friday to Saturday. Friday was fine. We were visiting with my kids, ages 1 and 3 and my nephew, age 2. On Saturday, the little kid play area was closed, along with the kids hot tub and regular hot tub. Which then meant that the other areas were extremely crowded. The little kid water slid...

Not great, just ok. This was our third time going to Great wolf lodge. The kids like it, ages 7 and 9, but even they found themselves wanting to leave after our second night there. Our room smelled funny and the staff seemed unenthusiastic.

Nice rooms, nice place, but 1/2 of the water park was closed! Great wolf isn't that big to begin with so when 3 of the areas ( basketball pool, hot tub, and kiddie area) aren't working it makes the feast of the areas really crowded! And for close to $400 a night I would have rather went to the kalahari!

Very enjoyable for everyone of all ages. My kids liked everything the hotel had to offer. Makes for a great family vacation and very reasonably priced for a big family as we took 6 of us. And you get a discount on returning visits

We would recommend Great Wolf Lodge to anyone. We can't wait to come back. Our kids loved everything they did from the water park to the arcade to the scoops spa. There was always something fun to do. We had the cabin suite and our kids thought it was the coolest hotel room ever!

We stayed 3 nights at this resort. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The waterpark is, of course, the best feature. It's big and spacious with life jackets available ( for free) to use. The kids had an absolute blast!! The food at the Resort was alright, prices are high so make sure to plan accordingly. We are at almost every...

Power outage cut or stay short. Room was nice and a good value with the Groupon. Staff was friendly. This review is awful and takes way too long, I will never do this again! If this 200 character requirement comes in again I'm going to flip out. !

We decided to pick this place bc of a recommendation from a friend. My husband and I were very satisfied with this resort. Our son had an amazing time in the water park, and the game room. We only spent one night here so we weren't able to do all the activities for kids. We thought it was a very...

If you don't mind dragging your kids through people smoking pot in there rooms go here. If you don't mind housekeeping not speaking English go here. If you don't mind loud rooms go here. Oh also they lost power and without power for 4 hours and only thing they gave us was 30 minutes extra at the water park. HMMMM...
