Don't Waste Your Money $$$ A review of Great Wolf Lodge

We arrived for a Spring Break get away. Arrived at 3:50 for the written 4:00pm check in time and was told rooms weren't ready and they would call me when the rooms were. Any time estimate? No. I received my call a little after 6:30pm. They said check in 'begins' at 4:00pm and you can't expect to get your room at 4:00. Our room was the cheapest at 299.00 per night. There is no valet parking, bell boys or room service at this "hotel" (they call it a "resort"). The restaurant is tiny and can't accomodate the numbers, and isn't very good. The buffet restaurant is a grease train with no salad bar or vegtables. Yuk! We went to Safeway down the road about 7 miles to stock up. The rooms are decent with fridges and microwaves. The beds are foam and very uncomfortable.

The water slides for my kids 11, 12, 14 - were fun, but they are almost too old for this place. The slides they liked had VERY long waits. (no lazy river like the web site says) The arcade was a hit, but a money pit for me.

Overall, I wouldn't waste your time or money. A GREAT concept just very poorly executed and very, very POOR service.
