Great Wolf Lodge Illinois

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Some of the worst customer service I have ever seen. Vending machines on 2 floors ate money with no refund after complaint. TV in room didnt work and nothing was done about it. You text for issues and obviously its a very flawed system. Hand rails on steps were missing multiple screws in 2 locations. My kid nearly got his hand pinched. Great wolf in Wisconsin dells is an amazing resort. This LOCATION IS A DISGRACE TO THE GREAT WOLF NAME.
