"Dont go for the food!"
We enjoyed the water park and the staff was wonderful, however the food was not so enjoyable! It has been a few years since we visited this location and in the past the food was awesome! This time the food served in the water park was meh. The sweet potato fries were cold (read frozen in the middle), the regular fries must have been sitting for a long […] time before we ordered them and the chicken fingers were nothing special. The Bear Paw Sweets and Eats was very disappointing. Previously they had great treats that my guys loved looking at, pondering and finally choosing. This time the cake pops were not done in the center; the cookies were nothing special (sugar cookies with blue icing); and the selection was a mere shadow of what was carried in the past. So, go for the water park; the comfortable beds and the friendly staff but PLEASE do yourself a favor and take your own food or plan on eating off premises. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great place to stay for tennis tourney."
outstanding !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location is perfect for Kings Island or Lindner Family Tennis Center. Clean, nice family hotel with neat water park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second time staying there and both times , it was great !! Just wish they had a better selection on the menu to eat !! Once we got there , didn't want to leave to eat anywhere !! But all and all it was a great stay both times !!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds were not comfortable at all and lines for the water slides were long.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again."
We were happy overall with the location ( you can walk to Kings Island) and amenities. The rooms were adequate, we lucked out with a ground floor room and a patio right off the parking lot so we were able to load and unload our stuff that way. The water park was decent, no complaints, it had plenty to do for our kids (2+ to 15) and an adults only hot […] tub was a bonus! My real only complaint was there wasn't a shuttle going to Kings Island. If there were, we definitely would have taken advantage of it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't Stop Til You Get Enough"
Words can't describe how wonderful the Great Wolf Lodge is! We stayed 2 nights and visited nearby King's Island. We did not want to leave! As a mom, I am a stickler for cleanliness and safety, and this hotel was tops! It was so kid friendly and everyone was so nice. This is a definite! We are from Atlanta and the drive to Ohio was a quite a trek, but […] we will definitely check out the "sister Wolf Lodge" in Charlotte! P.S. Brinley Bear rules!

"Perfect getaway for the grandchildren"
The grandchildren enjoyed all the thrills of a water park without the blazing July sun with the 90 degree heat and humidity. All the fun but no sunburn.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Deffinatly will be returning"
This is the first time I have stayed in a Great Wolf Lodge, but was very impressed, huge room with plenty of space, comfortable beds and a small deck. its right beside kings island, which was the main reason we went there and there is even a small path to walk on that goes to the park. it should be noted that if you get the room only rates that you […] don't have access to a pool as it is included with the waterpark package, which is worth it if your there for a few days Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place MADE my vacation, Everyone here was so nice and helpful. I will make it a point to stay here again. We could walk to Kings Island. The food wasn't all that great but it kept us from having to drive anywhere else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great value for great family Fun!"
The best thing was the hotel policies and the staff! Everyone was there to help you and the kids have fun and be safe. Very unusual set up that lets you use the facilities before and after your checkout! The water park was the highlight even over Kings Island. Everyone could agree on that! And it was a bargain! Not exactly a "luxury" hotel but it was […] great!!! We had the Grizzly Suite that held all 8 of us .... 2 bedrooms 2 baths. (3 Queens plus sleeper couch) Balcony off the living room ...etc. all for around $300 including the water park for 2 days FREE! The most kid friendly place I've ever been. We are definitely coming back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The kids really enjoyed the waterpark. However, us adults were disappointed with our experience. 1st, the room was dirty with trash under the beds, rubber hair bands were found throughout the room from previous guests. The refrigerator was dirty and had to be cleaned befopre we could use it. I am easily pleased when it comes to hotel rooms; give me […] a room that is clean and I am happy. This room failed miserably. I have stayed at many value chain motels that were much, much cleaner than this room. 2nd, the price of food at this place is very expensive. We had planned on buying meals on site, but opted to order out for delivery elsewhere. Not a deal breaker since we could order elsewhere, but a hassle none the less. Our next trip will be booked at a hotel elsewhere in the Mason area, and we will visit the nearby waterpark accross I-71. The room will be much cleaner, and the trip will be an overall better value.

"NICE PLACE VERY CLOSE TO KINGS ISLAND"
THERE WHERE A FEW STAFF THAT WHERE VERY RUDE AND HATEFUL BUT OVER ALL VERY NICE PLACEGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice but the staff in some areas need to be more friendly. The bartenders were very good especially at the bar in the waterpark.Genuine Expedia guest review

"location is good but could use more highway signs"
grandkids had great time.....the pricetag of $650.00 for 1 nite is a bit muchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great Wolf was a lot of fun, but beware of additional costs...food was extremely expensive and there are activities for younger kids to do that are very costly! If you go just for the waterpark you will be fine! Clean place, fun slides and water coaster!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very expensive for Spring Break, BUT it was an Absolute blast for my husband and I, and kids 12, 10, 6. That is such a wide age range, and is often hard to find something fun for us all. This was perfect! I felt comfortable to let my older two go off for 45 min at a time, and do the basketball hoop and squirting cannons with my 6yr old. Of course […] my husband and I couldn't get enough of the water slides, and my 6 yr old was big enough that our whole family was able to go on EVERYTHING together!!

"The BEST TIME"
I brought my 8 yr old and we had such a great time, it is something we will NEVER forget. he was asking when we could go back even before we checked out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were not impressed with our stay at this hotel. The overall cleanliness of the hotel was very disappointing and there are too many small children running around unsupervised. We noticed quite a few people carrying food into the hotel and having food delivered to the hotel. We figured out why once we ate one meal at one of the restaurants inside the […] hotel. The food is overpriced for the quality of food that is served. The room was advertised as sleeping six and we had five in our party. The room was very cramped and there was not enough room for 2 people. For the price of a room at this lodge, we expected a lot more. The water park was an overall nice experience. Table and chair availability is limited and the lines for the different slides do take some time to get through. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful for All Ages!"
A great array of things to do for all ages (in water and out), amazingly convenient, will be going back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good family fun"
Water park was fun. Everything extra is a little expensive though so plan to bring extra moneyGenuine Expedia guest review
Had lots of fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
The heater and the fireplace did not work very well at all. Thermostate was set to 72, tempurature would range from 65 to 68 not very pleasing when coming back to the room when wet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Check in lines were long but staff was friendly."
Very kid oriented for New Year's Eve with magicians, face painting, the water park, etc. It was very good for them and included hats, noisemakers, a DJ to dance with and a live band to ring in the new year.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun for the kids... Not so much for adults :)"
Waterpark, arcade, activities are great! Hotel room was all around noisy. The kids will love it though!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel with indoor water park"
The best of everything for all the different ages in our group. A great mini vacation! ThanksGenuine Expedia guest review
We love to go to Great Wolf Lodge, this time the water was too cold, we didn't get to enjoy the water rides because of the cold water. we didn't know that they had cleaned the water area and the water was too cold for this time of year... If we had of known we would have waited and went when the water was warmer, wished they had of let us known so we […] could have rescheduled. We didn't get to enjoy the water park at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fall break visit at Great Wolf Lodge"
We surprised the kids and took them to GWL. It was a week before Halloween and the hotel had several activities for the kids. They had trick-or-treating parade, magic show and scavenger hunt with a magic wand. The kids had a blast inside the waterpark. The temerature was comfortable and the water was warm. Food was good and the staff was friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely bring your kids here!"
This hotel exceeded my expectations! My father and I brought my five year old to kick back and have fun on fall break. Every one of us, from 80 years old to five years old, had a blast. Our room was spectacular! We stayed in the majestic suite. It was roomy and fantastic! The fact that you can check out and still use the waterpark that day is a huge […] plus! They have SO MUCH for kids to do beyond that though! There was an arts and crafts area, a kids show, reading time, and a trick or treat session. (We were there in late October) One of the greatest activities outside of the waterpark was Magiquest! Kids of all ages were playing this from morning to night. My son loved the magic wand and can't wait to complete more quests when we go back! Adults don't fear, there is a whole section in the water park that has an adults only hot tub. I am already planning a return visit! We had an amazing time! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Family fun for everyone!"
Great Wolf doesn't disappoint again! Best place to take the family with everything in one location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for parents with preteen children"
The entire resort is geared towards small children, ages 4-8. Story time, mascot characters, even the waterpark are all designed for preteen children. If you're a parent with kids in this group, it's worth the (very hefty) price. If not, you can still enjoy much of the waterpark, but it won't be nearly as fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for young kids..."
Great playplace for the kids....Rm 3008 could use a good cleaning and some maintenance. Carpet had popcorn seeds / bobby pins on it at checkin. Bathroom needs a good cleaning as toilet was not clean and there is black mold growing on the ceiling. The one and only sink in the room leaked but we didn't discover that until pulling out a bag that was stored […] under the sink area. The A/C also is not functioning properly as it sounds like a jet is taking off when it comes on...made sleeping difficult. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved the lodge and will plan on returning in the future. It was soooo convenient to Kings Island. My boys (16, 12, and 10 yrs old) absolutely loved the water park within the lodge. I hope our next visit we can stay longer. Thank you so much for all the hospitality. Everyone was so helpful and nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed at the Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio several times and have always loved it. However, this stay had a few things which was not too comforting. They said check-in time was 4:00 p.m. We never got into our room until around 5:30 or later. We paid over $300.00 for that night. The kids did get into the waterpark but the elderly travelers after […] traveling, could not get into their room to rest or lie down. Housecleaning doesn't come around until 5 or 6 in the evening. After setting down in the humid water park for several hours I had no place to rest because I was waiting on housekeeping (which didn't show up the second day) because I didn't want to be in their way when they did come. The refrigerator in the room had been turned off (to defrost, I'm sure.) However, it was not turned on when we got in the room and the melted water was still inside. Consequently, causing a wet mess. Could not get thermostat regulated....either too hot or too cold. We set the required temp but it wouldn't shut off and on regularly. We save all year to come to Wolf Lodge with the grandson which is our only vacation. Disappointed. The grandson (age 8) loved it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good, but hopefully will be better the next time.."
The overall experience was pretty good, but hoping for better next time.......I had requested a view of King's Island from a balcony and was assured I would have that. Did not, but had a nice view of the pool. The people upstairs from us were so noisy that we didn't get a lot of sleep. All of us complained about it the next morning, but no one called […] the desk because we all assumed everyone esle was asleep and didn't want to wake each other.......if only we had known that all of us were being kept awake! The biggest complaint is the foldout counch "bed"......all of the other beds (queen and twin) were comfortable but the foldout couch was TERRIBLE! You know it's bad when a 5 year old wakes up and the first words she says are "my back hurts"!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Loved this hotel!"
On a recent trip to Cincinnati, we took our three year old daughter to the hotel for one night, as it was pretty pricey ($318 for the night). We arrived at the hotel at 1:30pm and were told that our room was not ready. After reading many reviews online, we knew in advance that it would not be ready before 4:00pm. Make sure that you pack your swimsuit […] and you can begin using the facility immediately. What's really nice is that you can even use the waterpark and all other areas the day that you check out until closing time. When we got there we paid $20 to use a locker (you get $10 back if you bring the key back by the end of the night), which was conveniently located right next to the changing area. The waterpark is huge ~ my daughter absolutely loved it! They had a wave pool, multiple single and family slides, all sorts of play areas, snack bars and even a lazy river. When we finally got the call that we could check into our room, we were really excited to check it out. We reserved a Wolf Den room, so that my daughter could have her own "room within a room." It was super cute, with its walls painted with wolf pups, bunk beds, tv and the ability to play video games. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. Next time, I am going to scour the internet to see if I can find a discounted price! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great family venue-3 tips to make it the best!"
This waterpark/hotel is fabulous for the whole family! The chain has worked out all the kinks and makes it easy to enjoy the stay from pre check-in to 10 pm the day you check out. We'll be coming back! Since you'll have use of the water-park facilities but not the room try these tips: 1) pack a separate bag with your swim suit, goggle, swim shoes, […] & a few snacks. The hotel supplies plenty of towels and there are changing/shower rooms to change in & out of suits. This way you can can change into your swimsuit & use the water park before your room is ready (but after pre check-in) and the whole day that you check out; and you'll have dry clothes to change into for the walk to your room/the drive home. 2) Purchase a locker to keep your valuables/dry clothes in. Its a $20 deposit at the gift shop & you get $10 back if you turn the key in before 9:30pm. If you get there early, you can get a locker in the changing room. Loop the key around your swim suit strap and you don't worry about your valuables. 3) Wear swim shoes (available in gift shop)! Its a moist warm place and perfect for athlete's foot. You can wear the shoes throughout the park. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very kid friendly and safty is always first!"

"Great Wolf Lodge"
Best hotel ever, what more do you need? Perfect waterpark.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a nice stay! Kids had a blast! Only downside was the dining areas closed at 11pm which was early considering the pool closes at 10pm. So we had to rush to get from the pool to our room, get showered, dressed and to the restaurant before 11. However the service was excellent and the food was awesome! Overall I am very happy with our stay. EVERYONE […] was very friendly! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for families with children"
As a family we enjoyed the experience at the wolf lodge, the kids always have a great time. The room was okay, clean but for the money, I would probably not book the two story loft.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had a nice visit. However, the breakfast Buffett should provide turkey bacon and/ or turkey sausage. As well, the rooms should have flat screen televisions in this day and age. Other than that, it was a great trip!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful trip. The only thing that was very disappointing was the couch sleeper. We had booked this room because it was large enough to accomodate our group. The couch sleeper mattress was hard and the springs were coming through it. This made for a very miserable night of sleep for a couple of us.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room appeared clean but we had some issues with it not being complete--missing towels, beds made wrong and missing top sheets, missing toilet paper and tissues and someone's clothes were left there. The management responded by taking care of each issue and extending our checkout to a later time during the day. Perhaps the housekeeping department […] was short-staffed during a busy Spring Break Week, but we appreciated their responsiveness. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A bit too pricey. The waterpark was fun, but very noisy. Lots of long waits in lines.Genuine Expedia guest review
