5/5 Excellent

GWL in Gurnee, has an amazing staff. Everyone was very helpful and friendly from the maintenance staff to the maids and bartenders (Richard is a great bartender). Our overall experience was over the top

4/5 Good

I think this hotel is mainly for the family with small kids. So the facility is very family friendly but it’s more helpful if they set a step for small kids in each room.

Not the best experience....for a Great Wolf Lodge

I have stayed at other Great Wolf Properties evening within the last month (2) and this one is unorganized and the management is rude and unhelpful. I checked in my room wasn’t available then they give me another room that they said would accommodate 6. It only would accommodate 5 so they moved me again. They way in which they handled it was unprofessional and flat out rude. I settled for a room that worked but it was tight. I asked for management and I was told...”this is all we are willing to do for you” booking through a 3rd party means you get 3rd rate service at this hotel. The water park was good, but only open until 9 on a summer weekend. Water park bar, closes early and one went even open on a Friday night. Our room wasn’t ever touched by the maid service and when we asked for extra towels we came into our room and it looked like they were simply tossed on the bed. I wouldn’t spend a ton to stay here. Although I am sure it isn’t a chain issue because we stayed at the Bloomington, MN location 2 weeks prior and had an excellent experience. I am sure it is leadership and management in this location.
