“Turned me from a non water person into a water lover”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

I really didn't know what to expect, you see the ads everywhere looks great for the kids but just how much would it be for adults, especially for someone who's never even had their face wet (seriously) but was determined for the kids to change this once and for all.

You do drive past parts that aren't that great to get here but once you arrive, the outside vision is spectacular, impressive. You walk in, you feel a sense of immediate belonging. We're all there for a good time and it shows on everyone and in the attitude of the staff.

We booked during the week, which I highly recommend as when we were leaving Sat the line ups and crowds were a lot whereas any time we were ready to go for a ride there was one or two ahead vs 30 waiting but they do move fast. The lifeguards are great and friendly and I felt very looked after along with the rest of my family.

The room we had -Wolf den- was beyond what to expect, the bed for us was great and better than home! I really liked the wolf den for the kids so when the kids are tired you and they have their own space + the patio outside is a plus when the weather is nice.

The Food at the Shanty as well as the coffee shop,was great, we didn't go to the pizza place but the service again was spot on. Leaving here I didn't want to go and I've already made reservations for July. There really is nothing negative I could say about this place even if I tried. I am and was impressed!

Wow! What a great place for families! I have stayed here numerous times and have been impressed always. The overall vibe or theme of this hotel is great. I love the lodge theme with animals everywhere. The kids will love the talking forest animals in the front lobby, which is also very nice and large. There is tons to do, from the huge indoor waterpark, the arcade, spa, etc. The waterpark is tons of fun! You'll love all the rides. There is an indoor/outdoor hottub too. Resturants are numerous here. The rooms are very nice, and there are many different to choose from. All have balconies. The wrist bands are also very clever, they have your room key on them so you will never get locked out. Very clean place.

Our family has such a wonderful time. The waterpark was great and even though my daughter wasn't tall enough to go on everything there was still plenty for her to do.

The room was very spacious. It was a bit noisy from kid in the room next door if you are looking for quiet this isn't the place to go!

Story time was nice and my daughter got her nails and hair done t the spa which was a nice way to spend some time.

I hd heard different things about the meals but everything we had was excellent.

Can't wait to go back

Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara Falls Canada is truly a great place for family fun. The waterpark is huge and offers many slides for all ages, a wave pool,lazy river, hot tubs, large spacious play areas, swimming pools both indoors and out and tons of wet fun! Inside the resort you will find great restaurants; buffet style and/or take out counters, a coffee shop, gift shops, a full spa...even one for the little princess in your life. There is a fitness center,an arcade, a kids club arts and crafts center that offers babysitting services as well! In the evening don't miss the pj party and story time in the grand livingroom! The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We have stayed in the kid's cabin suite, the majestic bear suite and most recently the loft suite. All of these rooms were wonderful. 1 night stay allows 2 days of waterpark fun! This resort is a little pricey, but well worth the cost.

Room Tip: we've stayed in 3 different rooms and all were great!

First let me start off by saying that the kids loved the water park. They were in there for two full days and could not get enough. The place is expensive and so was the mediocre food. We purchased the dining plan which included breakfast and dinner buffet and a counter service lunch. The wait staff at both breakfast, lunch and dinner were not very nice. They did not refill SFO.is and acted as though you were inconviencing them by eating there. The room was spacious although our toilit and phone did not work. I would expect for the price that the staff would be more friendly. Overall a good experience, but the price and service make me wonder if I would return.

This was our first time staying at GWL. We got a great rate through the 48 hour sale and booked a wolf den suite. We checked in on Sunday Memorial Day at around 4 and check in desk wasn't that busy at all. Got a ground floor room thanks to the tip here. We bought the meals package that they offered at the hotel. The water park was packed with the lines for the tube rides running about 20 minutes wait. We had dinner & breakfast at the buffet and found the food to be just above average. Nothing to rave about for the amount of money we paid. The kids also played mini golf which was extra $ and my daughter did the spa pedicure. The scoop spa was very nice but expensive. Overall, plan on spending a couple of hundred $ extra on top of your room. It's a very nice & clean resort with great customer service and a great place for kids.

Room Tip: Ask for a ground level room but close to the elevator
