I'd never been swimming in an indoor pool when the outdoors temps were in the mid-30s, so as a 70-year-old grandma who has trouble dipping in a toe when the water temperature is below 80 degrees, I didn't know what to expect from Great Wolf Lodge. Turns out the resort has it pretty much figured out, from the room key... More

Review of just the Waterpark: The waterpark was a lot of fun, especially for our kids who had never been to a waterpark before. The kids loved the slides and wave pool the most (kids were ages 5-11), tons of life jackets available for those that aren't strong swimmers. A 24 hour stay was plenty for us as we did... More

No customer service, unruly kids with no supervision. Very outdated and dirty rooms, very expensive would never go back.

This place seems wildly popular with families having young children. Conveniently located off I-5. Lots of various activities and I particularly appreciated the giant fireplace with checkerboards as well as the panoramic viewing area of the water world. There are several eateries within the lodge but all overpriced and unimaginative menus. I noticed most families - whether lodging overnight or... More

After 17 times going it was ok. Our youngest still has a blast there. Some of the things that have gone down hill for us was the clean part. Neigitive: 1. Our room had cobwebs and dead spiders in the bed. 2. The toliet looked like it hadn't been clean in a while. (Had a nasty ring) 3. Smelt super... More

Park has a lot of rust. One attraction was always shut due to poop or vomit. Kids have absolutely no manners. Beds were so uncomfortable. OK, positive's.... beautiful furnishings, kids love it.

Great wolf lodge is a great place to take your family. I took my daughter for her 13th birthday with a small group of friends and they loved it. I got a "Groupon" which is a website that you can register for free and purchase cheap deals for yourself or friends and family. You can't beat the prices. I got... More

Small space for size of this hotel, limited menu but food was tasty. Prices a bit overpriced although that was to be expected.
