Loved everything about GWL from the clean and comfortable room to the friendly staff. Lots of activities other than just the water park. Enjoyed the story time and visit with Santa. Can't wait to go back again!

This was the first time that we have ever been to a Great Wolf Lodge. I will have to say that we will be going back for sure! Check in was a bit lengthy.... I waited in line for 20 to 25 minutes just to get up to the counter but that I think because of our arrival time and... More

Very family friendly atmosphere. While almost all of the children we saw were under 10 our three daughters (age 12, 16, and 20) still had an enjoyable time. Staff members were very friendly and very accommodating when we asked for more shampoo and towels. The rooms were cozy (we had a family fireplace room). The beds were not great but... More

small children were watched by attentive life guards. Encouraged children to try certain slides for their age. always watched to make sure everyone is clear at the slides. Story times were very enjoyable hard to hear at times.

Very nice place for a quick trip. Great inside restaurant with great staff. Tons of stuff to do with a young toddler. Easy to navigate the Hotel and water park. Very close to other businesses ( Meijer's, restaurants, and gas stations)

We went for my 9yr old sons birthday! He and his friend had a great time..plenty of things to do to keep busy. Be sure to take some snacks to keep in the room..kids get hungry often when swimming. We would go again. The smiles on their faces was worth it all.

Room really need to be renovated. The beds dip to the center of the mattress and the wall paper is peeling off the walls. Had to move rooms because the HVAC unit made a loud clicking noise into the night. Maintenance wanted to replace the entire unit, but the rooms don't have safes and I didn't want to hang out...

The restaurant specials are very deceiving. I have never had to pay 5 dollars for a small fry, especially when it says the meal comes with fries. The employees at the coffee shop and ice cream stand acted like they hated life. This was supposed to be an exciting time for my family but it was a disappointing time.

Waterpark was perfect, and kept clean... Rooms were another story. It was very disappointing for what you spend to stay there and the bed sheets were dirty on both beds, bathroom tile was dirty, the pack n play was broken and had to call down to have it replaced.

After check in and settling into our room, on one of the dressers in the loft sweet I found a white powder substance a small amount of marijuana and a a half of a straw which indicates that not only was there drug use in the suite but that the staff never properly secured the room or cleaned it properly,...
