    The water Temperature at the water park was too cold for myself, and my 2 toddlers.
    PATRICIA, us1 night family trip
    Great Wolf Lodge Illinois, Gurnee
    Over priced for the experience
    Called morning of stay to ask about early check-in. I was told guests could check in as soon as 1pm, and then would receive a text message saying room was ready. Got to hotel and checked in around 2:30 (hotel was not prepared for the volume of people there), and was told I would receive a text when my room was ready. They allowed baggage check which was appreciated. No food/beverage places on site were open, so limited to sitting in the lobby. After two hours had passed I never received a text about my room, so I went to the front desk to ask. Turns out my room had been ready, but no one ever alerted me. Waterpark was OK, but website advertises a spa/sauna and there was no spa, hot tub, or sauna to be found, so really no options for people that would like to relax. Next morning woke up and went to make coffee and there was MOLD around the spout of the coffee maker. Went to wait in line for 20 minutes at the Dunkin’ on site, and while waiting they ran out of iced coffee. Front desk told me they offered express checkout through text message, but once again received no communication. Overall I would not recommend a stay here at all. Prices are high because it has the “Great Wolf” name, but the experience was disappointing and not worth the cost.

    Overcharge for extra activities.
    Really overpriced. I can understand the initial cost but almost every activity cost extra money and they were quite highly priced. Besides that, very clean and very nice staff.
