Excellent room and service

Everyone at this hotel was pleasant and accommodating. Very comfortable bed and nice size room. My family enjoyed the water park. It was a great way to spend the weekend.

family friendly

Pros: Very kid friendly
Location: didn't explore the area
As a childless couple, we stayed in this kid/family friendly hotel because it was within our budget (in the area for a family wedding). Even though we didn't use the water park, we did get a good look around, and was very impressed! The hotel staff was friendly. It even had a Dunkin Donut shop in the hotel, which I really appreciated for the coffee!

Great fun with the kids!

Pros: I liked how many activities for the kids they provided. I liked the food at Camp Critter and was pleased that there were many healthy items.
Cons: I felt the water and pool area could have been a bit warmer, we got cold if we weren't moving around a lot. Dark chocolate options at the sweet shop.
Location: We stayed in Traverse City, MI, so there are many things to do. We went out to dinner once, but since it was cold we mostly stayed at the hotel.
We had a wonderful family trip to Great Wolf Lodge! The kids had a great time in the splash park. I was impressed by how many other activities they had for the kids at no additional cost; wolf walk in the morning, junior life guard, dance party, scavenger hunts, and story time. My 2 and 6 year old had a lot of fun, we stayed for 3 nights.

Wonderful for the kids!

We stayed for three nights and the kids would have been happy to stay all week. The waterpark was great fun for both of the kids as well as the magi quest. The kids are already asking when we can go back.

Clean, quiet, not crowded, and close to everything

Always nice to stay in a kid friendly hotel that's quiet so you can actually get some sleep at night. The hotel was in town so close to a Meijer and downtown Traverse. Not overcrowded. Very clean. We stayed several days so appreciated the microwave and refrigerator. The pillows were like rocks so bring your own.

Very nice room. Comfy bed. The waterpark and hotel really cater to kids. Not much adult fun.

good for kids but very loud, not as big as i thought.

Pros: fun
Cons: Noisy
Water park is fun for kids but all those kids enjoying it are pretty loud! The smallest room is actually not much bigger than a standard hotel room. With the cot all the furnature barely fits.
