Editor’s Review of Great Wolf Lodge Poconos
If you have kids, chances are you've heard of Great Wolf Lodge. With locations throughout the United States and Canada, it's the largest family of indoor water park resorts. The Poconos location opened in 2005, and is a sprawling, four-story, 401-room den of family entertainment. About a two hour drive from both New York and Philadelphia, this popular resort is packed year-round. The faux log-siding, entrance carved with bears, wolves and other animals, and giant clock tower in the entrance lobby will be a big hit with kids. Even though it's staged, they really do manage to create the feeling of being in a genuine, old-fashioned lodge. It doesn't hurt that this is the Poconos.
Great Wolf Lodge is all about the kids. Most ... more of the fun centers around the water parks; so if you or your kids aren't keen on getting wet, and staying wet for long periods of time, this is not the place for you. But for the rest of us, welcome to waterpalooza! With a 78,000-square-foot indoor water park open all year, and a giant outdoor pool area open in summer, there's water, water, and more water: 500,000 filtered gallons a day, to be exact, PH-tested every hour by hand. Carpeting throughout the inside of the resort is forgivingly dark, as is the lighting; but even so, this place is well-maintained -- not immaculate -- but well-maintained. Wisely, both the indoor and outdoor parks are accessible only through the hotel (not from outside), so feet stay pretty clean.

If you want a little more personality, try a themed room, which runs a bit steeper than a Family Suite. There are several different kinds, including The Wolf Den Suites, KidCamp Suites, KidCabin Suites, Royal Bear Suites, Majestic Bear Suites, Grizzly Bear Suites, and the Quest Master Suites.
Premium Suites are the top of the line, and in addition to all the amenities of a regular Family Suite, have a special features like treasure chests and lamps that open and speak when activated with the wand, as well as hallway lights outside the door when you walk by. Two wands are included with each MagiQuest room, and all have a private balcony. There are also Whirlpool Fireplace Suites (same idea as a family suite but with a fireplace and whirlpool, and Loft Fireplace Suites, which have a separate upstairs area with a queen bed, separate phone, and bathroom.
If you have young kids, you might want to bring a gate for the stairs, or choose a different room. Also, if you have young kids and will be using a stroller, consider staying on the water park level, as waits for the elevators can be long.
