It was perfect for small children. Had a bunch of other activities for kids other than the water park. Staff was awesome and was cleaning everything with wipes after we used it and had hand sanitizer to try to keep the place clean.

I love that there was so much to do at the actual hotel itself! The perfect place to have a family vacation. I had a lot of fun at the indoor water park! If there was one thing I would change it would be to include microwaves in the actual rooms themselves and not just have a single shared microwave for the entire hall.

It was nice and big. Rooms clean and in order. Customer service was quick, easy, and helpful. The only thing bad was the flooring in the waterpark area was really slipper and seen about 5 people wipe out.

Different things to do. My salad was taken to go but since they were out of large containers, I was given less than half of a portion. That with my poutine cost me $23!

Rooms were clean and spacious. Water park is always great. I wish the water was a bit warmer in the lazy river. Also ny wrist band didn’t work when paying for food even though it was setup to do so

Better food options are needed. Service with additional towels was lacking. Overall good experience.

It was not as large as you'd expect. There was no convenient way to get to our room to and from the parking lot. The rides were limited. The cost was ridiculously upcharged. Overall, it was a mediocre trip.

Loved it! Staff so nice! The suite was a little small.

I liked everything I didn’t like the prices they’re more expensive than the one in Wisconsin dells. I’ll never come back

The staff wore their outside shoes into the pool area so there was mud tracked everywhere. The floors throughout the facility were actually dirty. The rooms are dark. The water and water park were cold. No hot tub.

Many amenities choices for food and activities. Had a prior good experience and this one was as good as expected.

We got there early to get early check in. Check in was at 4pm and we didn’t get a room till 45 min later.

Great resort! Our kids loved playing Magiquest and playing in the waterpark. Great Wolf always does a great job!

I like it all but check in is too late making the experience uncomfortable. You need more water slides too. Inside and outside.

All good, my daughter has enjoyed staying in this hotel.
