The lodge offers comfortable suites, multiple on-site dining options, free wireless Internet, a fitness center and spa, and a 40,000-square-foot conference center.

Rooms

Relax in comfort in the 401 Wolf Den Suites. These non-smoking accommodations feature a microwave oven, a mini refrigerator, and free wireless Internet. Kids can watch movies or play video games on their own 20" flat screen LCD TV. In the main portion of the suite, adults can sprawl out on a queen bed and full-size sleeper sofa, with their own TV. Suites also feature a private balcony or patio.

Features

Located on the same tract of land as the Kings Island Amusement Park north of Cincinnati, the hotel's showpiece is its 79,000-square-foot Bear Track Landing indoor water park with six pools, 12 waterslides, and four-story water "fort."


Guests can choose from a handful of family-friendly dining options, such as the Camp Critter Bar & Grille, a traditional sit-down eatery, or the Loose Moose Cottage, a buffet-style restaurant. The Bear Claw Cafe features a full-service Starbucks.


While most visitors stay at Great Wolf Lodge for a family vacation, business facilities are available, including a 40,000 square-foot conference center. The main lodge and guestrooms offer free wireless Internet, but the business area has wired Internet access only.

Wonderfull Family Time

The entire family had a wonderfull time. The resort expected and encouraged the kids to be running around the hotel and having fun. Staff was friendly and the place was just awsome. Anyone who has kids has to plan a vacation here. We WILL be going back.

Awful!

This place is overpriced and the rooms are old with old furnishings. The water park is small and crowded, only good for the winter since its indoors. The staff is below average with service quality, the front desk is overcrowded and the clerk treats you like they are rationing out bullets at war. Uneducated people standing in line in the water park with no manners, a waste even to spit on these trash. DO NOT GO unless it's in the winter and this is pretty much the only option in the area.

Avoid peak times for meals and try to do MagiQuest during water park breaks or early mornings when there are less people.

Great Spring Break Getaway

We had a terrific time at Great Wolf Lodge! Our 4 kids range from 15 to 3, and there was something for all of them to do! My only complaint was the dinner buffet. It was rather pricey and not very good. However, the breakfast buffet was wonderful! We liked it so much, we'll be going back in December.

Family Entertainment

Great family place...waterpark was great!! The room was very clean and comfortable. The only problem we had was that we did not realize that bringing in food was prohibited. My husband tried to bring in a fast food lunch, but they would not allow it. They want you to buy all food at Great Wolf. Our family of 6 had to eat our lunch that day in the truck. I do not know why they have refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms if they do not want you to bring food in.
