                  Over Thanksgiving we stayed at the GWL with our kids and had a wonderful time. We also brought our two dogs up north with us and boarded them at Bokhara Pet Resort in Elk Rapids (Williamsburg). With the kids having so much fun at Great Wolf, and the dogs having just as much fun at the pet resort, my husband and I were in heaven. Everyone enjoyed our weekend in Traverse City.

                  Yes Water Park Is Great. It is very fun. Many more things a family can do in Traverse area and then still pocket the difference. Traverse has to much going on to end up here. You can go camping for weeks as opposed to a weekend here. I ended up feeling guilty for the amount of money I spent here as to what I could have done. Go to the beach, go to the swimming pool at Howel Arena. Kids prefer what you do with them. Heck you can feed your family for the week and still have grocery money left over. This is what I remember most. Why over pay to stay in a place that has quality issues on every aspect of the hotel other than the water park. Gosh after having warm food served to me in the restaurant, I question food safety here. Recommend leaving the premisses to eat every time. Pack snacks and beverages for in room. Theirs a very nice Little Caesars, and very nice Wendy's within a half mile of Great Wolf. And a Mcdonalds if your kids need more playtime. Bring memoir foam to soften beds and reduce plastic noise on mattresses. For what they charge boycott any extra purchases. More Hype than joy.

                  Pros: Great Water Park

                  Cons: Quality

                  .

                  This water park offers activities to keep kids and adults entertained for hours. This includes a wading pool, perfect for little one, three waterslides, and a lazy river. Lifeguards are on their game and seem to enjoy their job.

                  The dcor cannot be beat and it was fun to play I Spy in the lobby. Can you find the coyote?

                  Ok, so my husband went to this hotel for a conference. Granted it is for kids, but I was sooo disappointed in the place. First of all he had to pay extra for me to stay in his room (close to $40), they said you had to pay per person, because you could use the waterpark. We checked in after the waterpark was closed and had a conference to go to in the morning, so it was impossible to use the waterpark, but they still charged us. The beds had plastic mattress pads which were crunchy, our smoke detector had flashing lights on it all night long, the fan for the room sounded like a cyclone, and we had food in the restaurant which was deli meats for the conference and it was an expensive, tasteless meal. As adults we would never go back to this place, I guess if you had children they would have a good time.

                  The Great Wolf Lodge is a fantastic place to visit. Even for 1 night or a entire weekend. It is expensive but well worth the money. The kids will have a blast with the water slides that go indoors and outdoors, the kiddie pool. If I remember right there are 5 pools and a snack bar. Grab your children for a fun weekend away espicially with the long cold winter coming up.

                  This is a great family trip for both kids and adults alike. Everyone will love the lodge and their wonderful water park. They are very expensive though so this is not a frequent trip but still worth the occasional go just to enjoy the day with my family and friends.

                  If you have the money to go - the Great Wolf Lodge can be a fun vacation. The water park is great fun for the whole family, with large water slides for the thrill seekers to small pools for the littlest members of the family. Only complaint is the price can be high and when its busy - its really busy.

                  This hotel is wonderful for families. It has lots of things for kids to do. The best is of course the indoor waterpark. It has the best pool for toddlers that I have ever seen. It even has waterslides for the really little ones! There is a craft room, an arcade, a nice gift shop, restaurants, and more. The only drawback I can see to this hotel is that it is a bit pricey. (But worth it!)
