We were only able to stay here because we found a deal on Groupon that discounted the room 50%. I feel that was a reasonable price to pay for the room and waterpark. The staff was fantastic. They were friendly, were able to answer our questions, and greeted us when we walked by. The room as clean and well kept. You can tell the room was used but being a themed hotel with lots of children coming and going it was acceptable. My only negative thing to say is the cost some of the extra activitie... Read more

I didn't get alt of rest because the guests upstairs above us sounded like a herd of elephants all times of the night. Also some parents allowed the children to run through the halls all time while other guests were still sleeping. The shower also runs water all over the bathroom floor. I didn't know until getting out and seeing a pool of water on the floor even with a shower curtain.

My family enjoyed the waterpark and the pizza and ice cream shops. My six year old loved the arcade, though it was expensive. Our room was fine - seemed to be well maintained. The price is ridiculous, but we'll definitely return if we can find good discounts.

Our 5th trip with our grandchildren who love the water park. Went on a Saturday for the first time. We had always gone on a Sunday and pulled the g-kids out of school, as Monday's were "short days" but now are full days. Saturday's are crowded, resulting in 45 minute checkin wait, not getting a room until 4:25( you can use the water park after checkin and can use the dressing rooms in the park) and longer lines in the water park. However, the grandchildren did not mind. Our room was comfort... Read more

I will agree with other reviewers that yes one overnight is enough - when you check in early and check out late. We brought our 12 yo son and he enjoyed it very much. This was a last minute decision as we somehow read the kings dominion website wrong and it was closed. So. Many. Stairs. Between the water park stairs and the hotel stairs for the magic wand game ugh mama's legs so tired. Yes, there is a elevator in the hotel but the game has you all over the hotel waving the dang wand everywhere ... Read more

The shower in the water park went from hot to cold and was dangerous for myself and my 5 year old son. The shower looked old and was not well kept. The magiquest hours should be from 8am not 9am each day. Kids are up and need something to do from 8-9am. Charlotte do not charge kids 5 and under for magiquest. You should implement this policy. They also don't charge a $1 on top of game price for book. Nobody could hear the story time, everybody was asking what they were saying. You need a new sou... Read more

This place needs a full renovation. I remembered how nice and clean it was when they first opened now it is filled with ants. My room was moved twice and every single room had ants. The only great thing about this place is the water park. Perfect for all ages and plenty of fun.

If you are looking for a great family escape or even a Scout Troop..this is the place. This was my first visit and I was blown away by how much stuff the kids got with the Wolf Pass! It was a great way to spend a weekend, never had to leave the lodge! They make it easy to bring a cooler and pack your own food or enjoy the great food at the resort. We were never disappointed in the food or variety. The kids were on the go constantly and worn out by the end of the night! The rooms were very sp... Read more

I took my Scout troop this weekend- age 7-8. They loved it! The hotel greeted us well, the room was ready at 1pm when we showed up to begin using the park. Each room had a $50 spending voucher which was nice. The park food is reasonably priced, there were some maintenance issues of the wave pool and the tornado slide. Life guards are very attentive and keep a great watch on the little ones. Plenty of vests available for those who can't swim. Ropes course was a bit pricey, and the rooms ar... Read more

First Great Wolf Lodge experience and it was an overall good trip. Although we arrived after 4pm, so NOT a busy check-in time with only one family in line ahead of us, the check-in process took way too long. I don't know if it was due the computer system or the person checking us in or both, but I don't know why it took as long as it did. I can't imagine how much longer it would have taken had we arrived during peak check-in times and there was a line. So beware from 1-4pm! There will be a very ... Read more

So far we visited Great Wolf Lodge twice - and loved it both times! It is definitely one of our favorite places for a short family vacation. Both times we stayed just one night, and it was just enough. Anything longer could have been too much. The indoor water park is FANTASTIC! The best part - it is equally suitable for very young kids, teen, and adults. There are enough activities to keep everybody entertained. The Quest games are great, too.

We had a wonderful time. Kids wanted to stay an extra night. First, we got there early so we were able to pre register and start using the park before 1.

We visited GWL in March and again in June. In March we stayed in the kid cabin. In June we were supposed to stay in the family suite but were upgraded to the loft room. The kid cabin was cool in theory but the beds themselves were pretty yucky. The whole rest of the room was clean.

The rates I have seen for GWL run $3-400/night but I joined their email list and received a promo code for $125/night. We also bought the kids wolf passes...that was a decent value as well and channeled their fun so the words "I want" were only heard when expressing desire to return to the MagiQuest game. So for that; I feel this trip was an excellent value. We traveled on a Wednesday- Friday so crowds were not too bad. I had read reviews where it was so crowded one could not get a table, but ...

Waterpark is kind of lame unless you're under 10-years-old. Room was too far away from lobby/waterpark and parking. Kids ultimately spent more time on the wi-fi than in the water. Lodge tries to offset late check-in times by granting early waterpark access, then charges $10 extra for a locker in which to store your clothes until your room becomes available. More up-sells than a car-buying experience. Almost 20% of the total price consisted of taxes/fees.

I feel like this is a great place for a family to go with lots of fun things for kids to do. However, it definitely comes at a large cost. We stayed one night for 2 adults and 3 kids in a standard room and it cost us $400. That's just for the room and passes to the water park. They have a buffet for dinner but it was over priced.

Went here for a three night getaway with husband and 10 y/o son. Water park is loud, small, hot, smells like chlorine. No concern for aesthetics,comfort or the interests of anyone over 10 y/o. Difficult to tolerate more than an hour or two in the park. Was expecting a nicer hotel for the money. Once again no regard for quality, beauty or adults in any way. Very small T V and very few channels. Checked out one day early.

Even with discount for the group we were with, the money spent for one night's accommodation was not worth the investment. Like the room description says, the room slept 8.

I came with my family for a conference I was attending. The waterpark is a lot of fun, this is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1. The accommodations, on the other hand was not great. We stayed in one of the cabin suits. It was very sticky. The carpet was really worn down. The room was large which was great, however they could have stuck a much bigger bed for the adults. Plenty of room for a king sized bed, but only a queen. Anyway, very disappointed with the room. Next time I'll stay somewhere els... Read more

All around good time. Waterpark lots of fun!! Food was pricey but good. Dinner buffet was $20/person, but other choices were available. Jammie's Jamboree (Pajama Dance Party) music not really age appropriate for smaller kids. Sent the adult "kids" out to relax while I watched Grand Baby. We were surprised to learn that No restaurants, hot tubs or pools were open after 9:00pm just for adults to relax. Rooms and resort very clean!

We stayed one night on our way home from the beach. We had a blast. My kids (6, 5, 5 months) loved the water park and its features (the slides). The service is great - they know you shell out cash to come and thereby ensure a decent time. We prepaid our breakfast and got a $50 resort credit which was put to good use for drinks and snacks and souvenirs. Only downside is this - guests can eat in their rooms which we found out as we found some fruit flies and a roach the last few minutes of ou... Read more

My boys (8 & 10) were happy and smiling from the second we pulled up until we left 3 days later. For that, I give it 5 stars.

No Great Wolf in Florida so promised the kids we'd visit a GWL if we ever traveled out of state, we were NOT disappointed! Check online for discounts and sign up for email to receive discounts. Love that you can check in to the water park early in the day prior to room check in and can stay all day the day you check out. A few fast food restaurants near by if you want to leave to grab an affordable meal, however we ate a cheese pizza from "Hungry Like A Wolf" and it was very affordable.

From the outside of the Lodge to the appearance of the Lobby, it looks like a great place. The problems started at Check In. There was a mat on the counter that advised that upgrades were available.

This was a difficult review for me. I say this because although I wanted to rate it a 1 - my kids absolutely LOVED the place. I enjoy seeing my kids happy and seeing other kids having fun as well.

We had a weekend in Disney planned.... Well Hurricane Matthew had other plans. I had no idea what to do or how I could find something my kids would even remotely enjoy as much as Disney. On a recommendation from a friend I booked Great Wolf Lodge. When we pulled up it was late and the kids were still not sure what to think about the change in plans. We walked in to a HUGE balloon spider and Halloween decorated hotel and two of the friendliest front desk team I have ever met. We got an exce... Read more

Arrived to be told they lost my reservation that I had already paid for. Charged me again. Made me wait all day for room never notified me it was ready I had to call them early evening. Gave me room as far away from amenities as possible. Room was dirty hair in shower sheets stained furniture falling apart bugs on walls. Management unresponsive in resolving issues. This place is a dump. Never again. STAY AWAY.

Our family had a blast! They had different activities going on in the lobby through out the day, but we spent most of our time in the water park. They have rides and areas that appeal to all ages, the Tornado slide was our favorite. We stayed in the family suite with a balcony and it was very spacious and cozy. The staff was very nice and helpful, with the exception of the girl at the personalized name shop. My daughter was interested in buying a bracelet and tried asking questions but the girl ...

My family and I visited Great Wolf Lodge this past weekend, and we had a blast! We are a military family and received a great deal through the base for 1 night/2 day stay. We had 2 adults and 3 children in our party (ages 16, 10, and 6). Let me start by saying that the resort is beautiful. There is a big fireplace to the left as you walk in, and it makes it feel as though you're right at home. Since it's October, the entire resort was decorated with a Halloween theme. The children wore their co... Read more

We all enjoyed the Great Wolf Lodge. The indoor waterpark is amazing. We stayed in the kiddie camp suite and we all though that was cool. The room was slightly dated but very much an at home feel. The front desk was friendly and very helpful. We would more than likely stay at this lodge again.

Our five year old daughter had a blast here, and our one year old also seemed to enjoy it. In sum, here are the positives: friendly staff, excellent buffet, huge fun indoor water park, lots of activities for kids throughout the day. Negatives: the rooms have indeed seen better days. Here's the long of it: it's a little overpriced for a stay here, but it's a good value for the indoor water park. The lifeguards were top notch. You could tell they take their job seriously. I liked the feeling I go... Read more

Great for kids... they have bowling, arcade, coloring, put-put and of course the water park! I loved how you just had a wrist band and no key to keep up with! Very nice with kids. I will say I'm used to nice things so be prepared for sheets felt like sand paper, toiletries are awful bring your own for sure! The food is not what we're used to but kids will love it. We made some great memories and everyone was very nice.

While the prices at Great Wolf are higher than the average hotel room, this is not the normal hotel. There are deals to be had if you choose a visit that is during non peak days. We chose to check in on a Tuesday during my grandchildren's fall break. The cost for our room was under $200 per night. They also allowed us to check in at 10:00 AM since they were at very low occupancy. In addition, while we had to check out at 11:00 AM, we were still able to use the water park until 8:00 PM the day of... Read more

We had the chance to go there two weeks ago, the water park was great, there are things to do for the entire family. Couple of things need attention, the matresses are a little old, all fixtures in the room were working, however some of them are a dated... All food in the entire place was blend and unexciting!!! Not to mention overpriced! I would go back!

Spent Halloween @ Great Wolf & it was more than a trick than a treat. They market trick or treating which consists of 3 pieces of candy which are inappropriate for young children (warheads, laffy taffy, & lemon heads). The beds did not have a fitted sheet only a sheet that was thrown over top of the bed. We were told at check in the water park opened at 9am & we were waiting til 10am with other guests who were told the same thing. I think it is over priced

For this price, I have stayed in very nice resorts, or in very fancy hotels in major cities. I get that some of the price is the water park. But, I could have easily paid for water park tickets at somewhere like Water Country and stayed at a much nicer hotel for far less than what this place cost. And that is with one of their big promotional discounts. For starters....there appears to be moisture and water damage issues everywhere in the building. Our room had peeling wallpaper.

We've celebrated my son's November birthday at GWL-Williamsburg two years in a row and may be back for a third year. It's an easy ride with enough to keep the kids busy and enough food inside (and nearby!) the resort to keep everyone happy. My family of four is looking forward to next year there. Just keep in mind: there's lots of water and lots of people. Bring water/swim shoes

My family has visited the location in Concord, NC several times and we decided to try this location for something different. It is as overpriced as they all are, but still a fun place. The room was very nice, with the exception of low water pressure. The water park was great! Much more activities than Concord. The property was clean and well kept. My only complaint is the fitness center had no resistance equipment. All in all, a great family experience!

Overall this was a nice trip, staff was very accommodating and grounds are very clean. We were disappointed in the food and cost of the food so I would recommend eating elsewhere but other then that, great. I strongly suggest walking around the entire hotel if you are staying longer then a day. As we were checking out we walked around and found lots of neat stores we would have liked to visit.

Came to Great Wolf Lodge on a Groupon in early November. At the Groupon price point, it was well worth it. I think at full rack rate there are better vacation options. We booked a standard room. It was large, quiet, and reasonably clean. There was a separate seating area so the room was clearly designed with families in mind so that adults would have someplace to go after kids go to sleep. The reviews about the resort food are true. It is just not that good. We weren't offended by the pr... Read more

The Resort was great, as we have come to expect from a Great Wolf Lodge. Spacious rooms, great waterpark and very little wait to get on the 4 big tube rides. All the staff was very accommodating and the waterpark staff made sure of the safety of the swimmers. Restaurants were a little pricey so you might want to bring drinks and snacks to help defray this cost.

For the expense, a winter trip here needs to be warmer in the water park! For the cost and the fact it was not crowded, service in the restaurants should have been way better.

Kids loved it, parents loved it. This was our second visit to GWL. The first in New England which was a newer facility. This hotel in Virginia was still very nice and for the most part kept up. We had a junior cabin and it was awesome with 3 bunks exactly for 3 kids ( no fighting). Food prices for pizza not crazy (on sight) but restaurants also nearby (until the New England location). Even though we stayed Thanksgiving weekend it wasn't so busy that it wasn't enjoyable.
