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!"
We had the best time ever! Did not even have to leave the hotel for anything..everything was there! Lifegards are at every water ride there and its nice to know your kids can have the time of their lives and you dont have to worry. The staff are friendly and helpful!Genuine Expedia guest review
"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

Fabulous family time experience for all ages. We stayed with out of state family visiting and everyone had a wonderful time. The waterpark is total fun. Great customer service.Genuine Expedia guest review
fantastic! we only live 10 minutes away and this was a great vacation. it was my sons 11th birthday and they upgraded us for free to a kid cabin because it was during the week. no lines anywhere and we played for hours. kids also loved Magicquest. Great value for the money. We had 2 full days in the waterpark and 1 night in a wonderful room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second stay @ Great Wolf, first was Wisconsin Dells. Both very nice. My only complaint is the buffet in Loose Moose Cafe; just wasn't good. Very strange selection of food for families & vegetables were essentially raw & bitter. All other food areas good. Also enough major food chains close by. Wonderful fun. Just remember the lodge is child […] oriented, so expect to spend for items that kids will see & want. You will have a fun & memorable time. Teens & Tweens will have fun because plenty of wilder water options as well as stuff for little tykes. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were upgraded to better room upon arrival because an area of hotel was being worked on which included our original room. It was a nice surprise. Kids loved the Kids Cabin room. Food to expensive for G-Ma and G-pa on fixed income. but we still had a wonderful time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only problem I had was I had to wait an hour and a half for my room. Because it wasn't ready but yet I was there at check in time...Genuine Expedia guest review
You are definitely paying for the waterpark, as the rooms are not that great. They are decorated in a lodge theme, but are not attractive. The pull-out bed was extremely uncomfortable, although the standard beds were soft and comfortable. I'm not sure if the hotel does this on purpose, but we were put in a room right next to the vending machines - maybe […] they do this to people who don't book through the hotel. The pool area could have been cleaner. There were hairbands and band-aids on the ground. My kids, ages 11, 9, and 7 enjoyed the Magiquest - but, said that itT looked a lot better on the hotel website. That was an extra $100 for that game. It was o.k. Once was enough...we won't be coming again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very nice family place"
The resort was as advertised. The staff was very friendly and check- in and check- out were smooth and quick. The water park is very good and the neighboring Kings Island offered $20 tickets after 5pm. It was short walk to Kings Island and that added to the fun of this resort. This resort was very family friendly, super clean, and fun. It's not as nice […] as a Hilton Grand but should suffice for most folks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism displayed in handling a "power outage" at the hotel upon our arrival. The hotel provided free hamburgers and hotdogs for its patrons, with a magician and balloon artists to compensate for the short wait. The hotel also kept its water park open later than usual to accomodate for the delay. I wanted […] to extend my gratitude to "Great Wolf Lodge" in how they exhibited "good business" tactics in a situation beyond their control. We will be returning for our yearly outing at this establishment as it is always a great time for our entire family. Thank you Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Just came from the Kings Island waterpark - and their long lines. My 3 kids had more fun at the GWL waterpark, with little wait for the big runs. Great hotel - Waterpark and MagicQuest is worth the pricey night's stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel with a great staff and lots to do! Our kids are 9 and 11 and had a blast. The waterpark is spectacular and bigger than we expected complete with a wave pool. There are restaurants on-site that serve good food at good prices. There are plenty of things for kids. The rooms are average. If you get the room with the bunk beds for the kids, they […] are probably better for age 10 and under because they're typical bunk beds; fun but not the best mattresses. The rooms are probably 3 star type rooms and are suitable and large enough for families and you don't really spend a lot of time there anyway. We would stay here again.

Had a great time at the waterpark . Had a few issues with getting seated at the restaurant, once at breakfast and another at dinner. Found childs shirt and socks behind end table in hotel room.

Everything was wonderful except prices are outrageous and the lifeguards are very unfriendly. Couldn't take 2 seconds to answer a question. Would blow the whistle but wouldn't say whom or what was done incorrectly. Prices are $7ish for a kids meal! $14ish for the adult buffet. Had to have 200 for food alone for 2 daysGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The water in kiddie pool, wave pool and outdoor we exceptionally cold! The kids didn't even want to stay in any pool due to the temperature! When buying food from the indoor water park's restaurant (by the entrance to the outdoor pool). On three separate occasions we were either shorted on our meals or over charged. For example we purchased a combo […] and were minus the fries, cheeses for pretzels was missing, chicken fingers combo was again missing the fries. On a fourth occasion we were very cautions and watched exactly what was going on behind the counter. We purchased 3 dip n' dots and were charged for 4!! When I later asked about the price the kid behind the counter quickly said "Well there is tax." Umm..not THAT MUCH! When he was asked to pull up the receipt it showed that 3 dip n' dots were charged but we were told the price was $17.03. It all seemed very suspicious since that is the total for 4 dip n' dots with tax. We finally got our money back but we had to be very persistent!! My advice is to know exactly what your total is supposed to be with your food order before you hand over your money. Be sure to bring your own food because prices are ridiculous! The lifeguards were very thorough. The condition of the stairwells going up to the water slides/concrete/paint seemed to be needing some attention. It was getting a worn out feel. The cleaning staff does a very good job. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Awesome hotel experience. Rooms are very clean and the fun is very convenient because the kids can walk back to the room after swimming. Buy the pizza because the pizza is the best price food and is very good. Save the money for the awesome arcade.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Fun, but quick"
A great place to take the kids, but the check in and out times need to be further apart. We pay quite a bit of money for just a short period of time. It's hard to enjoy such a nice and expensive room when you're wanted at the waterpark.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall great experience for a vacation for keeping kids busy...but for grandparents it could be tiring! Lots of activities for all ages...the pre-schoolers loved the Cub Club and kid's slide area; the pre-teen loved MagiQuest and the majority of the slides. The wave pool was awesome for all! The Paw Pass was a good buy, but would have been better if […] they were offered by age groups. For three kids, we bought two and split things amongst all! The arcade was not what we expected. Machines did not work properly, especially the bowling alley, and we spent more time waiting on an attendant than we did playing. Our room (stayed in a Kid's Camp) was the right size, but there was very little water pressure and all drains ran slow. While you couldn't hear your neighbors on the sides, the clump, clump of feet from the room above us was annoying, especially when trying to sleep. Meals in the bar/grill were expensive, but we ate most meals in our room (brought the food with us). All in all, we would do it again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
