"Fulfilled its promise of comfort and entertainment"
I've been to other GWLs and this one is a little smaller than some. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel was at about 25% capacity, and I was disappointed that we were given a basement room, but I did not complain. I've seen the reviews stating the hotel was unclean, but I did not witness anything that raised an eyebrow. Perhaps the carpet […] on the stairways could be changed; it's hard to keep those smelling fresh after a certain amount of wear and tear. The water park was clean and fun. The outdoor pool area was really nice. It is not cheap to stay at this hotel, so expectations are high, but the price includes the water park activities, which is a good deal for a family of four. We did not use the Magic Quest this time as our children have reached the 13 year mark, but they did really enjoy it in the past. I would like to see the hotel add a teen zone, perhaps with popular video games and music playing, that is cool but not cheesy, and open past 10:00. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun hotel close to Cedar Point; great for kids"
Three buddies and I decided to check this place out, since it's very near Cedar Point and we needed someplace to spend the night after a day of coasters. We arrived late - after Cedar Point had closed - and the staff was totally ready for us; they had our room keys and welcome packet and everything already set aside. They were VERY friendly, very cool, […] and very generous - we decided to change our room from a room with two Queen beds to one with one King and a kids' room w/ a bunkbed, and they accommodated without batting an eye. The room itself was clean and comfortable, and the kids' room area was really cool (even 'tho none of us staying there is under 42...) The King mattress was comfortable; the bunk mattresses, less so. We wanted to check the place out, so we took a midnight stroll; nothing was open, of course, and this place is HUGE - it would be easy for young kids to get lost, I think. The indoor swim park looked awesome - we had to leave early the next morning, before it opened, so we didn't get a chance to check it out. The lobby is gigantic, kind of a tribute to old lodge-style hotels, with a big fireplace and some sort of kid-oriented animatronic show in the center. Lots of taxidermy all over the place (which strikes me as just plain weird in a hotel full of anthropomorphic / cartoon animal characters.) BTW: it's very expensive.

"Great place to stay"
Fabulous experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 star hotel priced like a 4 star hotel"
My kids had a great time in the water park. I was pleased with it, as well. It was very clean, organized and fun for all. However, the housekeeping at the hotel was lax. When I went to look for my children's things, the area beside the bunk beds in the"wolf den" had obviously never been vacuumed. I found another child's socks and crackers and crumbs […] that were not from my children. My coffee pot wasn't cleaned or re-stocked the next morning.(We stayed for two nights). The iron was dusty. They didn't re-stock our cups. Every night, a horrible stench would come in from the outside(we were on the first floor) that made it impossible to sleep. When interacting with some of the staff in the hall ways, they seemed stressed out. One was down right rude, and all I said to her was"good morning." The food in the restaurant was good. The coffee was good, but way over-priced. They charge like they are Disney, but the service and ambience doesn't even come close. I'm glad my kids had a great time, but I wouldn't stay there again. I would look elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for families with older children"
For smaller children age 10 or less, this is perfect. For us with teenagers, it was not the best as the water park was designed for small children and did not really appeal to older kids. We went to Cedar Point from here, which was outstanding. Thus, for 10 or younger - you can't miss here, but find another accommodation for adults or families with […] older kids. The rooms are ok, but tables and carpet are in need of replacement - stains and stickiness from many family vacations. Finally, one problem we had was at 5 am, we were woken up by security looking for the parents of a 2 year old that was found wandering in the lobby unsupervised. Perhaps a system where the wristbands for the water park was linked to the room number where they stayed would have avoided waking everyone in the hall of our wing at 5 am!

Had a wonderful time at the hotel! Service was very friendly. Was a little pricey for what we needed but well worth the money!! Beds were comfy. Loved the queen size rather than full anywhere else:) it was also nice to b able to check out and stay at waterpark for as long as we wanted. We had checked in super late. Also great location from cedar point! […] Definatly plan another get away an stay here:):) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great deal for good family fun"
Had a great time! Air conditioner in room was very loud. Pool area very clean . Room could have been a little cleaner. Mirrors very dirty and found lots of hair on carpet!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a blast at Great Wolf. The only complaints we had were that we stayed for 3 nights, and no one ever came to clean or replace towels and things. The other thing was that the pull out sofa bed was not comfortable enough to have anyone sleep on. Other than that, we had a great time in the waterpark. We have kids that range from 3 to 20 and there […] was lots for everyone to enjoy. It was also nice that there were restaurants right at the hotel. We didn't have to leave and waste precious swimming time in order to get something to eat :). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"fantastic stay at great wolf!"
Went here for a little family vacation with my husband and son whose 5. Everything was great and all the rides were working. The life guards all did their jobs very well and overall my son had a blast. We also enjoyed ourselves greatly but the park is most definitely made for the little ones. The only thing to look out for are little ones stealing your […] arcade card if you leaving it laying anywhere for more than a few seconds. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a little family fun in a safe clean atmosphere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
1. Water Park was perfect for all of the kids in our group (ages 3 to 10) 2. Location was great (near Cedar Point, grocery store, restaurants, etc) 3. Our rooms were never cleaned/serviced, so when we came back from Cedar Point we had to request new towels 4. Rooms could use a little refreshing but they are cleanGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Always a fun time!"
My son had a Lacrosse tournament in Sandusky, so we thought we would stay a few nights at Great Wolf. The staff was very friendly and even helped me with some event printouts I needed. The waterpark is always fun and the team is extremely courteous and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for kids, and adults too!"
Was looking for a place to stay near Cedar Point that offered something to do when not at the park. Ended up spending more time at Great Wolf Lodge that at Cedar Point. A little pricey but worth it. Went over Memorial Day weekend but did not feel it was crowded at all. Nice that they only allow guests to use the facilities and do not sell day tickets […] like other places. Did not like the breakfast restaurant. They serve family style, which means they bring out platters of eggs, bacon, sausage, and hash browns. Some people may like this but was a big waste of food for my family of three. Would recommend going to Dennys or Cracker Barrel nearby. Overall, a fun experience. I would go back.

"Fun place but disappointed in hours of operation."
This was a very fun place to stay. It was clean and well kept but the hours of pool operation and game room operation were really disappointing. We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and the pool closes at 9pm. The game room closed at 11 pm. So with teenage kids and fun parents who like to play, this was a bit of a bummer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great wolf lodge"
If we had known that is was geared more for little kids we would have not went. We have 15-16 yr olds and they didn't enjoy it. It should be posted on the web site the age group. Won't be back there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun for kids"
Overall we enjoyed our stay. The hotel staff was friendly. The hotel upkeep is good but has room for improvement in the finer details. For a quick weekend getaway this was a fun choice and the kids were sad to leave!Genuine Expedia guest review
This place was great. I took 4 kids with my husband n I and they had a blast. My 3yr old son enjoyed the kiddie area n the older kids enjoyed the pool n slides. Great place for kids. Plus they had other things for the kids to do.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel experience was enjoyable!"
The Great Wolf Lodge was a good experience for my family. I have 4 children. My oldest daughter is 16, my twin boys are 10, and my youngest son is 9. They ALL had FUN! If you plan on going, a 2 to 3 day stay is more than sufficient. Aside from swimming they have a game called Magi Quest. It was a little expensive since everything is 4X the cost for […] me. But the boys played for hours. So they were entertained and had a lot of fun. They also have a decent arcade. We didn't eat on premise but they do have a few restaurants and places to eat. We packed breakfast and ate in our room. It has a really tiny area with a fridge and microwave. The area surrounding the Great Wolf lodge has a lot of places to eat. Overall it was a good experience. My family would definitely go back. We would time it when Cedar Point is opened since it is 10 minutes away. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel loads of Family fun!"
The kids enjoyed the water park and Wizards Quest. This is a smaller water park with less to offer than some of the others in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for a winter's day"
My wife and I took our three children (age 12, 11 and 8) to enjoy a waterpark while we relaxed from the cold. We stayed for two nights, but one would have been more than enough. The waterpark was enjoyable, but not as large as expected. The adult whirlpool in the waterpark was just warm and not very relaxing. My wife and I did enjoy the few larger water […] slides with our kids, but the waterpark and activities seemed better uited for younger children. The room was spacious and clean, but the micro-fridge was smaller than advertised. The staff was friendly and we might return for another visit when it is cold and snowy out. For summer, a hotel near the beach and an amusement park or outdoor waterpark will be better for our crew. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the kids"
We stopped here on a trip out East. We loved the waterpark, and ordered pizza that was surprisingly good. Our room had two queens and a sofa bed pull out. It was nice that we had a refrigerator too. Our biggest complaint was the uncomfortable beds! It felt like we were sleeping on a trampoline. Overall, it was a one night stay we made for the kids, […] and they did enjoy it.

"Over Night Get Away for the Kids"
We have been to all of the other indoor water parks in the area and this was by far the best and best value out of all of them. Our kids are 5 & 9 and this was the best indoor water park for those age groups. They also have a great arcade and a magic quest game that the kids loved. The food choices were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A nice facility, cleaner than the other hotels in the same business.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My family had a great time in the waterpark. The restroom and changing facilities inside the park were lacking in cleanliness and the staff could have had more upbeat attitudes!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Happy Spring Breakers"
The hotel was very nice very clean the room was ready before the posted 4 pm check in time so no waiting around which was nice . I had myself my wife and 4 children ages 2,6,10,13 we all really enjoyed the stay the water park was great not to crowded for spring break .Everything was open and functioning rite a 9am the entire staff was friendly and attentive […] . This was however not the first great wolf lodge we have attended the Cincinnati location has probably double the waterpark footprint that the Sandusky location does both were great excellent staff and amenities Cincinnati just has a much better waterpark area both hotels are basically mirror images of each other Cincinnati had at least four more tube / raft rides . Overall though great stay great trip will definitely be going back . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Busy, but nice place"
For being a Saturday night stay in the middle of winter, of course the place was busy. But towels were plentiful in the water park, and there seemed to be enough tables and chairs for anyone who might need them. The hotel was nice; our room was a Family Suite that sufficiently held all 6 of us. The bathroom was tiny in the room, but served its purp […] ose. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice waterpart, amenities, food & more overpriced!"
Magic wands, food, coffee all way overpriced....small coffee just under $3.00, large just under $5.00.......Magic wands for the kids (and this is only a kids place) are $25 for the wand and to use them.....If one brings 3-4 kids that's $100 plus your cheaply priced $250 room (which ncludes waterpark admission admittedly) about $65 for a family of 4 […] which basically two adlults do nothing but watch the small ones......

Second time going to a GWL and have to wait in the lobby because the rooms aren't ready. You can go to the waterpark, but what about all of your stuff? Who wants to get dressed after you have been in the waterpark and unload the car. Pull out sofa is terribly uncomfortable and twin bed in kid's cabin (upgrade because our other second room wasn't ready) […] was like a board. Lost about two hours of waterpark time with all of the waiting and spent a fortune for the rooms....very disappointing....and the water was even a little cool:( Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fun for Kids"
Kids had a ton of fun at watermark and arcade. They have a neat game called MagiQuest as well that has the kids do scavenger hunts with interactive screens over 4 floors of hotel. 3 day trip over Christmas vacation was perfect. They serve alcohol as well - which was nice for mom and dad.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was very nice place. Except story time was too crowded and we couldn't even participate/watch and there was a bunch of hair in our tub because they didn't cleab it out well :'(Genuine Expedia guest review

"The best hotel kids/family oriented I've ever been"
During my visit to Sandusky, OH Great experience with the front desk staff during check in time. The 2 guys that helped me (one was the manager) went above and beyond to provide the best accommodations for me and my family. I was able to actually see all the different types of rooms before i decided for the best one meeting my family needs. My grand […] babies were able to visit and enjoy the water park, mini spa, food and many other activities with us during our stay ... They loved it! I will definitely recommend the resort and will be back hopely very soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"6 year old's birthday party"
We are season pass holders to a local rec center. Though it has an indoor pool, we tend to not swim there in the cold temps because it is not very warm during the winter. great wolf lodge was completely opposite! every single pool was a temperature that was reasonable. At one point a child went to the restroom in the children's pool, and immediately […] the pool was shut down and being drained. they did not waist any time! very family friendly. the children were able to run around while I was able to still keep an eye on them as well. highly recommended.

"Great Wolfe Lodge"
Rooms were excellent. Very disappointed in the food for dinner in there restaurant. My husband, son and I had not completed our meals that were terrible and then it cost us $100.00 for three to eat . We would of had dinner down the road at the red lobster and paid that price and would of been more satisfied. Breakfast is not included in the price and […] they offer a small dinning room to accommodate hundreds of guest staying. The cost of breakfast was 11.99 per person and had to wait an hour or more along the staircase for our turn to go in. Dinner and breakfast out on the town the next time.

"Nice place for kids of all ages"
Very nice hotel, with a lot of activities for kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice stay, but the waterpark is more geared for smaller kids. They only had 2 slides for adults. The hot tub was really nice. The lazy river was so small and had hardly any current to push you, we just kinda floated without really moving. 2 hours and we were ready to leave. Even my 11 year old was ready to leave after 2 hours. The room was […] nice and it was clean. The bathroom was very small. Nice balcony too, but not worth paying the price of a waterpark unless you have small kids. The location is great for CedarPoint. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great deal for a fun weekend!"
I was surprised at what a great deal I got for two nights at Great Wolf Sandusky. It was cheaper than staying onsite at Cedar Point. Our room was very clean, the beds were extremely comfy and the balcony was nice to dry our suits. While our kids were too old for some of the activities, they had a ball in the waterpark. Our room had a fridge and microwave […] for our own food which was nice because I did not want to spend $ 5 for water let alone an expensive breakfast. The only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was a sales tax hike that supposedly happened in the middle of our stay which they tried to collect at check out. I raised a big enough fuss that they let it go. Our hotel and Cedar Point were the only things that I enjoyed about Ohio. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
