OK so lets start this off by stating up front that you have to be aware that going to the Great Wolf Lodge is an experience, one that you will pay for but it is an experience. If you are extremely budget conscious hit a Motel 6. If you have some disposable income come here for a night.

We stayed in a Kids Cabin Room where the kids had their own "separate" cabin with bunk beds and decor to look like a rustic tent. (Note: only a double bed for the adults). Room was extremely clean and fully equipped with microwave, fridge and ample storage space, but we didn't spend much time there.

Things to do. First the watermark, well suited for kids 10 and under. If your kids are 11+ or extreme thrill seekers they may get a bit bored of the water park. The good thing is that you can get their early on your day of arrival and hit the water park and stay until close after you check out. Also there is an arcade (think Chucky Cheese), a bowling alley. There are also numerous kids activities all throughout the day like camps, dances, crafts and character meet and greets.

The good - This is an experience your kids will enjoy it. Rooms are unique and fun. The meal plan. Well worth it for an extremely diverse breakfast and supper buffet that will suit virtually all palettes and ages (the night we were there kids had pizza, roast chicken, pasta while the parents had beef medallion, mussels and seared salmon). Kids will sleep at night because they are exhausted from the stay. Like an all inclusive trip down south your wrist band give you "access" and is your room key so you don't have to carry one around.

Points to note - it is a bit of a distance from Downtown Niagara Falls. Not walking distance for sure. Price - this isn't a budget hotel but if you are smart by the meal package and the pawpaws (I think that's what it is called) those offer bulk discounts.

Overall a definite recommendation for a family night, weekend or simply the experience

1st time at any great wolf and they really have the place down to a science. I was skeptical about the whole indoor waterpark but we (5 of us) had a blast and spent a full day and a half in the water park when we weren't sight seeing at the falls. Food was decent also. One stop shopping for entertainment, food and lodging. Rooms were spacious and clean as well.

Room Tip: Ask to be in a room away from the Magi quest game

This was our first time at a Great Wolf Lodge and it exceeded our expectations. We all loved the waterpark of course, and the kids loved story time by the pool and the lobby dance party! Staff was great. The room was very clean and the kids loved the wolf den with bunk beds. Location was very good as the falls and other tourist attractions were just down the street (5 min. Drive). I look forward to my next great wolf stay :)

The ease of Great Wolf Lodge keeps us coming back again and again. The onsite waterpark that is only open to guests of the Lodge, the spacious and family-friendly rooms (with things like a fridge and a microwave in each suite), the ability to add a meal plan, and the other onsite activities (mini golf, bowling, arcade, etc.) all make it the kind of place where the parents can relax while the kids still have tons to do.

While it wasn't a perfect stay, per se, it was still a great one. Our room request was happily honoured (top floor, view of the outdoor waterpark), our room was ready before the promised check-in time of 4 pm (just after 2 pm, to be exact), and the both the common areas of the lodge and our family suite were very clean. Staff, for the most part, were super friendly (with a few exceptions) and the waterpark provided hours of enjoyment, even for our "aging" family (two adults and two older teens).

The breakfast and dinner buffets at the Antler Shanty were excellent, with an abundance of yummy items to suit every taste. We did have a server at our second night's dinner that was a bit of a disappointment...she lacked the Great Wolf friendliness that we have come to enjoy and didn't have the knowledge of the meal plan inclusions (specifically, a Shirley Temple as a drink option). Hats off to the fabulous young chef who was cooking up the cheese raviolis at the saute station on Saturday, June 28th...what a joy to chat with and the raviolis were divine.

The quick service meals were, sadly, nothing special. The pizza at Northwoods was greasy, and the sandwich combo at the Bear Claw cafe needed a side or dessert (chips, cookie, or something) to round it out other than included drink (otherwise, paying more than $8+ for a small kaiser with meat and a fountain pop seemed excessive at best). The chicken tenders and sandwiches at Spirit Island were passable but nothing to write home about. Definitely the value in the meal plan comes from the fabulous breakfast and lunch buffets.

We visited over a long weekend, so the waterpark was noticeably busier on the Saturday of the Canada Day weekend than on our Friday arrival day. The lifeguards, though, were plentiful and the park was very enjoyable despite the crowds.

What needs to change? The awful (and I mean AWFUL) shampoo/conditioner/body wash in the dispensers in the bathrooms. Total garbage. I was so grateful we brought our own hair care products, as the "green" options in the suite washrooms are beyond bad and a nightmare for anyone with long hair. Also, the water temperature in the suite bathroom never did get hot enough to enjoy a comfortable shower, despite having the water turned on as hot as it would go and allowed to run for some time (hoping it would eventually reach a suitable temperature.....but it didnt).

While we already had our next visit (Christmas 2014) reserved before arrival with a 15% discount code applied, we visited the front desk before departure to inquire about the "book your next stay before you leave and save 20%" promo that was advertised throughout the lodge. They were able to apply the additional 5% savings to our existing reservation, albiet after a lengthy wait and a check with multiple supervisors. So we are happily awaiting our return to our "home away from home" in the beautiful Niagara Falls. See you in December, Great Wolf Lodge.

Room Tip: In the summer, we like the top floor rooms with the view of the outdoor waterpark. The vaulted ceilings give a very airy feel to the room, and its awesome to sit on the balcony and enjoy the music of the poolside DJ. And a top floor room means less pitter patter of little (and big) feet above you.

We stayed at the Niagara location right after Canada Day and had a wonderful time. This was our first stay and our 2 kids (ages 6 & 9) and we loved everything about it. It was great having both the indoor waterpark and outdoor pool. There was so much to do. There are plenty of food options and having a fridge and microwave in the room was great for snacks. There is a meal plan available, which we didn't purchase because we wanted to check things out on our own for the first time. I think the meal plan is only worth it if you want a big buffet breakfast and dinner, otherwise don't bother. We grabbed coffee and Tim's from down the street and enjoyed that before going to the waterpark which opens at 9. Outdoor pool opens at 10. We grabbed lunch at one of the snack bars (at the waterpark and by the pool).
It was great to have the ability to use the facilities even after check-out, so you got another full day of fun. We were on the main level, room 2054 and it was a perfect location. We didn't hear any noise and yet we were very close to the lobby and down a quick flight of stairs to all the attractions. We didn't even get to everything so we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Main floor room was great. We were in 2054 and didn't hear any noise at night. Nice and close to the lobby and down a quick flight of stairs to the waterpark and attractions.
