The kid activities are great
Food in the hotel is very expensive and not very good. Breakfast is ok. The
Kids had fun and that was the point...
The water area was not a big as some other locations, IE no wave pool, fewer slides, but enough for our kids who are 6 and 9, not to be bored during our two day stay.
Upon arrival, the lineup to check in was ridiculously long with only three employees working the desk. Both the male and female locker rooms smelled terribly and we're absolutely filthy. Guest services, once they answered the phone, could not care less. Rooms were run down but the bed was comfy. The pillows felt like old bricks. Trying to reach front desk was like playing a shell game: unwound call, they would eventually answer, out me in hold, I would get frustrated, hang up, call back, and this went in for three different voices until I finally went to the front desk for help. Cleaning ladies were great!
Excellent facilities with a lot of family things to do.
Every little things cost money. No free breakfast.
Family room was comfortable with older children.
Room did NOT smell clean nor fresh and housekeeping single attempt did not fix the odor. Extra charge on stay was corrected and still does not make me eager to return.
Great Wolf Lodge focuses on fun and lets guests do the same. It provides an escape that transports guests into a veritable oversized playground of activity. The Great Wolf Lodge experience is punctuated by the lodge’s indoor water park.
Regardless of age, guests enjoy splish-splashing their way through the day at any of the several attractions in the water park. In River Canyon Run, guests plummet and slip through the twists and turns of this expansive raft ride.
Fort Mackenzie combines a tree house, toys, and, of course, more water, giving kids a rush of fun they won’t soon forget. Guests have the option of also enjoying Alberta Falls. Inside this tandem tube ride, guests slide through a large tube while sitting atop an inflated double raft.
The experience is further punctuated by Totem Towers, an interactive water slide that gives guests the option of how they slide down--so they can go up and try it again another way.
If guests are in need of supplies before heading to the water park, they can hit up the Bear Essentials Swim Shop to get everything required for a great time. Other amenities include the Great Wolf Kids Store and the Buckhorn Exchange Gift shop.
When the time comes to grab a bite, there are several eateries onsite. They vary from Dunkin Donuts to the Camp Critter Bar and Grille to the custom cupcakes and other goodies at Bear Paw Sweets and Eats.
Great Wolf Lodge Traverse City is the kind of experience parents will appreciate because it’s something kids will never forget.
