Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Paid my security deposit with my debit card and was processed as a purchase transaction as confirmed with my bank Great Wolf refuses to refund or credit my account saying it was a hold authorization not a purchase therefore no funds were withdrawn, there will be no credit or refund and the charge on my account will simply disappear My bank has confirmed this is not the case and has started a claim with the hotel to recover my funds but could take up to 30 days Major inconvenience Just expected a nice family getaway and to be treated fairly and honestly

Hotel's Favourite
I was quite surprised to constantly see 5 star ratings for GWL but after making this a formal 4 night/5 day holiday with my wife and 2 yr old daughter, I completely understand -  What an amazing adventure GWL was! This is a very mild version of Disney and the right balance re: activities, price and location.  Here are my notes to keep this review succinct:  1) Make your reservations 90 days in advance as you will get the best deals.  2) In summer, book your rooms overlooking the outside waterpark, it will give you that destination holiday feel.  3) Buy the Paw Pass: The kids will love the activities; bowling, cub club activities, arcade, magiquest adventure, build your own teddy bear...etc. When they are busy, it gives us parents a chance to unwind just a little bit.   4) The rooms at first will seem expensive, but if you treat this like a proper destination vacation, it will be far more comparable and reasonable.  5) They have daily activities to keep your kids busy, not to mention an awesome indoor waterpark, even in the worst of Canadian winters (Dec-March).  6) The lines on the slides at the waterpark aren't bad comparatively, and there is lots to do in the waterpark for all age groups.    7) The staff all around are great. That is some solid training they've got. It seems like a world on its own. They do thier best to make sure you are happy and having an enjoyable holiday.   8) GWL tends to have special events during occasions and holidays; Father's Day, Mother's Day, Halloween, Christmas etc. I went during Father's Day, and I felt so special with my daughter celebrating me and that special day. So memorable with the dance party and balloon drop! The weekends and holidays tend to be busier and more expensive, but makes for more excitement at the resort as a whole!  9) The breakfast is an $18pp buffet and accommodates vegan and veg options. Ps: Their waffles are eggless! (For those with egg allergies) I was quite impressed. Although, if budgeting more consciously, you can bring basic food items for the rooms and there is a Starbucks, Williams and Timmies not so far a drive away. 10. They also have a nice Cafe which merits a shout out. It has great breakfast items and goodies open all day from morning to night. This was a particular favorite for my wife - for their almond milk lattes to their chocolate strawberries and cheese/plain and chocolate croissants - all made in house fresh everyday!  11) The Cub club has a few activities both free and paid to keep the kids busy, and also kids get a souvenir out of activities. It is priced quite reasonably and worth it.  12) The arcade is good and full of lights and noise, but quite a few machines and mini-rides weren't working. Bowling is fun as well.  13) The lunch options at Buckets and the Watering Hole are actually quite good - even for vegetarians! The pricing for the food can naturally be as expected. But it is decent quality. And the Pina Colada at the Watering Hole is the best I've ever had! What a pleasant treat on a hot day!  14) Northwoods Pizza is good, but order whole pizzas, the individual slices have been sitting there for a while...  15) The Bear Claw is great, but they need 2-3 more options for vegan/eggless cupcakes and desserts.  16) The evening activities are awesome, my daughter absolutely loved the dance parties. Every evening they have something different (Bingo, Games, Magic Shows) and it really helps keep the kids occupied and burn off thier energy. The Characters also come out 4 times a day which is awesome. Got some great pics out of that!  17) On average 2 nights and 3 days would normally do the trick to fully engross yourself in the GWL experience.   18) The dinner options for vegetarians are quite limited to include the typical salads, pizza, boiled vegetables...etc. I emailed in advance and was informed that special accommodations would be made for my dietary restrictions but even after speaking to the chef, they prepared me a very bland pasta....the dinner component was honestly quite disappointing. As an FYI, the menu is a 3 day rotation. The advisable thing would be to go out to one of the many restaurants at Niagara for Dinner or just do ubereats. Overall we loved our vacation, and it was a total joy to see our daughter have so much fun! We cannot wait to go back during Christmas!  Mahesh B.

Comfy bed, great time. Downsides the virtual reality kept breaking and the bowling was a nightmare. Constantly breaking and fighting to get points out back on card. Food was good. Felt safe and clean, lifeguards are consistently moving. Booked private cabana and felt it was worth it! We booked another trip for next year!

We stayed for a weekend at one of the detached cottages. We were happy with the accommodation as the cottage was spacious and seemed new or recently refurbished with a rustic feel. The water park had several slides to keep everyone entertained for hours. There are additional entertainment options, like an arcade hall, VR experience and laser tag. That would have been all really good if the place was not so crowded. There were long wait lines for the best rides - ok, nothing like Disneyland wait times, but still being wet and waiting with little children for over 15 minutes to get into a ride is not too pleasant. Also everyone seemed to congregate at the main lobby near the restaurants, which also had long wait lines. We had to wait for almost one hour to find a table for breakfast. Overall, the facilities are good, but it is difficult to properly enjoy them given the big crowds. If we were to go back, we would probably visit mid-week when the crowds are (presumably) smaller and the room prices lower.

Had a great experience with my family and friends. We booked the semi detached cottage and love it. It was super clean and well maintained. The bbq area and fire pit were a lovely touch. The grounds are immaculate and staff walk around and wipe down windows and lights so there are no bugs. We rented the hot tub cabana and loved it. You share the tub with another family but the deck area is divided in 2. You have snacks and towels and a safe. Cute Picnic table for eating too. Emma was our server and she was great. Everyone was very happy and pleasant. Buffet dinner was great. Will definitely be back!

This was our 10th time back at GWL. It was our first post COVID. Stayed for 2 nights. Check in was easy. I had requested a room on the main floor and was not disappointed. We were very close to the lobby, which was great! Staff was very friendly, except for 1 staff member at Canoe Cafe. Room was clean. My only complaint was that the tub was clogged. The water park is awesome. We opted to rent the Cabana for the Saturday we were there. I highly recommend it. It’s pricey, but worth it. You get a table with 4 chairs, 2 loungers, 8 towels, a fully stocked mini fridge. We had a server who brought us food and drinks. Best part, we didn’t have to search for chairs or a place to leave our belongings. The pools are clean. Food at the lodge is reasonably priced. We got the dining plan, which is a great deal. Will definitely be back again next year.

Pulling up to GWL, my first thought was that I was very impressed - the lodge is beautiful and the grounds well-maintained. The lobby/living room is very spacious, the ceilings are super high, and they really nail that cabin feel. Check-in was very quick and the layout is simple, so our room was easy to find. The room was great, we stayed in a Kid Kamp suite and our son loved the bunkbed. Our upstairs neighbours were a little noisy, but quiet hours were enforced. There is a ton to do here, we stayed three nights and planned to do one day at the Falls, but there wasn't time - we played all day at GWL. The waterpark is really cool, there's something for everyone - a baby pool, waterslides, wave pool, lazy river, and even a bar. The programming for kids was great - our son especially loved the PJ dance parties in the grand living room, there was no shortage of activities outside of the waterpark. The Paw Pass was definitely worth it, especially because we were there for multiple days. Hands down, the most impressive aspect of GWL was their customer service - every "pack member" (staff) greeted us with a smile and said hello, many even stopped to talk to our son, which he loved. We texted the front desk for some new sheets and housekeeping was at our room promptly with our request. I absolutely recommend GWL, however, if I had to do it over again, I would wait until our son was older (he's currently three). He was able to go on the baby slides, but was too short for the others and a lot of our time at the waterpark was spent telling him no, he couldn't go down the other slides - which eventually led to a meltdown on day 3. We will definitely be going back, but will probably wait until he is 7 and our daughter is 4 so the entire family can enjoy every aspect. Thanks for the great stay, GWL!

The room was clean, the furniture is dated. The tub area had some mold. The sink was clogging. The mattress was not comfortable. They were suppose to put a birthday banner on the door which they did not. Overall the service was good, everyone working there is friendly and helpful. GWL needs to update their lodge and or do deep cleaning in the rooms. The kids had fun.

Just stayed here for 4 nights with my husband. He has always wanted to come here since a little kid. If you go into the pools I recommended being very cautious on the ladders to get out of it (not the stairs) there is no grip and my foot slipped and I broke my big toe. I went to the first aid place, the young lady was going to help me, then some elder lady told her not too and brushed me off and told me to go to the hospital (fair). Had to asked the front desk lady multiple times for a wheel chair before she went to get the supervisor as my foot was in extreme pain. Most of the dining staff at the buffet were great except for 2. Had one lady stand there for literally 10 mins while our food got cold, then one waiter who completely ignored us and didn't bring our drinks. Room was nice and spacious but not very accommodating for short people as getting out of the jacuzzi wet on tile was scary to say the least. Found three broken nails throughout the room which leads me to believe it wasn't cleaned properly and no maid service at all. Honestly for over $2000 I won't be going back.
