Recent guest reviews

We have an enjoyable time and the room was great. The activities for the children were good with one exception. I thought the Casino type entertainment room was not the correct type of activity. Why not have a sand pit with cars and things to play with in the sand or maybe have items available with colored sand . Why not have building materials for kids to make hats or makeup to make up their faces, or mats to tumble on etc. I think you would have many more children in that room and it would be a lot of fun for them as well.

Everything was top-rate. When we checked in and the desk clerk saw the size of our party, she immediately upgraded us to a larger room without our requesting such. That made a big difference in our comfort level. We loved the Water Park and spent lots of time there. The food was quite expensive but good. The time was very relaxing.

Stayed 3 nights on a family vacation with our two college age daughters to Traverse City. Room was nice and clean and larger than regular hotel room with a small separate living area and dining table. All hotels are pricey in this area, so we thought the added attraction of the water park was worth a few extra bucks. Clean room, friendly staff. Beds were only doubles and bathroom was small, but it was a good stay. Great place if you have kids under twelve, but it worked for us too.

Kids had fun , slides were fun . Ear wigs in room , but I would believe that would be due to all the moisture . Otherwise nice stay , good family fun and friendly.

First time at great wolf lodge and the whole experience was great! Kids had a blast. Rooms are a bit pricey, but everyone had fun.

We had a wonderful family vacation! So many wonderful and fun things to do we couldn't even do them all!! Such a beautiful resort!! We will definitely be back and stay a lot longer next time!! We loved how clean and warm the park was!

If having kids around is not to your liking, stay elsewhere!

First time at the Great Wolf Lodge. My children are a little older but still had a great time in the water park. Would go back again.

We took our grandsons,ages 5 and 7, to Great Wolf Lodge. They loved it. Accommodations were comfortable for the four of us. I really liked the convenience of lockers at waterpark( however cost$10) and being able to use facility before and after checkout. We probably would return,but next time will study more carefully which attractions appropriate for what age/ size. Life guards were plentiful and right on top if their game. We do feel that the hotel is over priced.

It was very expensive. We did have fun and the Waterpark met the needs of our children.

Stayed here for the first time with our 6 year old daughter. She has always wanted to go and arranged it as a surprise for her. Hotel is clean and staff are friendly. I'm not much of a fan of water parks but our daughter really enjoyed herself and it made for good family time together. We had a room with the "cub den" and she absolutely loved it. It makes for a nice getaway for the family.

Very fun hotel experience. The water park was clean and warm... a stark difference from the negative temperatures outside in January. Great work Great Wolf Lodge.

My two boys had a blast at the indoor water park and arcade, and enjoyed having their own "tent" bunk bed area in our room.

A perfect getaway to celebrate Thanksgiving with the grandkids. Little one loved the waterpark and older one shopping. Was impressed that the restaurant had healthy choices of food rather than just the traditional junk food. A little pricey but well worth it.

The hotel was nice and well maintained. The staff was great, very personal and helpful. The Camp Critter's breakfast food was average at best, but our server was really great.. I think you can find better choices in town than this restaurant. If you have kids, this hotel offers much to do for them. The magical tour is expensive, so it feels like a bit of a rip off for the money. But the pool & arcade areas are the crown jewels for this hotel.

Nice rooms but the water park is the best part of the hotel.

Decent place with a nice water park. The rides are good, but thought they are fewer rides compared to some other parks. Had a comfortable stay.

As a family of four plus a grandmother, we wanted to blend sightseeing at Sleeping Bear Dunes with kid-oriented activities. Great Wolf fit the bill perfectly. The waterpark was fun and the MagiQuest sparked their interest. This is not a low-budget experience, so expect to pay for extras - but we all enjoyed it and were never bored throughout the long weekend.

Most everything the handle very professionally and in a timely matter. Overal I enjoyed my stay there and would go back again:)

A great get-away for the whole family, my husband and I treated the family to a two day stay. The grandsons had a blast not only in the water park but also on their quest to play the game offered to play. The only draw back was it was expensive to purchase the wands for my five grandsons who all wanted to play. We all had a great time.
