Stayed in a Kid Cabin Suite. Not exactly a "suite" but the kids had their own space in the "kid cabin." Insanely cramped bathroom with a tub and toilet. Sink in the hall by the door. Cigarette burns on the sink counter. Grimy table with crumbs left on it from previous guests. For nearly $300 per night, I expected the...

We arrived at the hotel around 6:00 pm after a two hour drive. Check in was a breeze. Everyone received wolf ears and my son receives birthday wolf ears which allowed you to receive free ice cream. Absolutely no issues until we arrived in our room. We arrived in our room with a couple wrappers left on the floor. The...

We enjoyed our stay. The kids (2 & 4) loved it! The Waka are a bit thin and kids were woken up by excess noise. Bring your own nightlight as rooms are dark and there are none available to borrow or buy.

The water-park is good for little kids, but hotel needed improvement. Had to contact housekeeping twice on two separate occasions. Needed a sheet for the pack and play and needed extra towels. Both times involved hours of waiting and having to make two phone calls for each instance. Then housekeeping brought my husband a dirty sheet. for the pack and...

Clean water park directed for young children. Staff was not very friendly or helpful. Extra attractions were over priced. The clock show and story time offered was terrible. You can't hear anything and the staff is rude.

We had a lot of fun during our last week of January vacation at Great Wolf Lodge, Sandusky, OH. Clean, friendly environment together with long awaited family quality time made it a great experience. The only disadvantage we've encountered was a lady that presented a "Night Time Story" on Jan 27th. No kid seemed to understand a word from her...

This is the 3rd year in a row we have chosen to take our family to Great Wolf Lodge to help break up the winter blues. We love that the water park is fun for all ages and that my 7 year old and 5 year old can ride every ride. However, it seems to really be showing it's age...

Our kids had a blast at this park. They are fairly small children (ages 6 and 7) and I felt very safe allowing them to run and have fun on their own (still watching them) but with less worry because there are so many lifeguards around to keep them from harm. We came with another family and we both had...

This place is great for kids but relaxation is just not there. The beds are horrible, the house keeping is horrible, the restaurant was horrible .... But my child had a blast in the arcade and waterpark... Which was the only redeeming point.

The sink and tub where major issue, the front desk was informed and accomplished. The breakfast menu was very exspencive and it was not a good choose for us. The staff was good but all I could think of was the cost
