  • What to Ask For:
  • For the Best Rate call 800-780-5733 around the clock and mention promo code 380812. Ask for the Whirlpool Suite if you want the Jetted Tub.

  • Amenities:
  • The Whirlpool Suite at the Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine comes with a King Bed and Sofa Bed to Accommodate 4. Other Amenities include Free Waterpark Passes, Free Internet, Free Parking, Huge Room (544 Sq ft), Fridge and Microwave, Airport Transportation ($10 per person – subject to change) and Area Shuttle within 5 mile radius and Grapevine Mills Mall ($5 per person – subject to change).

  • I would not recommend this property if you are without kids:
  • (Unless you wanted to enjoy the water park yourself – If so, I wouldn’t blame you!) This is an Indoor/Outdoor Water Park Resort. Most people who stay here have kids. If you are not looking for this type of atmosphere, you might want to check out the properties with In Room Jacuzzi’s and Whirlpool’s near DFW Airport. DFW is only approximately 6 miles away from Great Wolf Lodge.

  • Rates and Reviews:
  • To be honest, this is 3.5 star property with luxury prices, in my opinion – and rarely will you find a deal. In fact, I’ve never found a good deal on this hotel and I’ve been in the travel industry for over 15 years. You are paying for water park amenities that can be used all year ’round. So, unfortunately, you will typically pay anywhere from $200 to over $500 nightly, depending on the room and time of year. Too expensive? You might want to book the Holiday Inn and Express Hotel and Suites off of I-35, just 14.5 miles up the road – they have Whirlpool Suites (or to get the best rate by phone, call 800-780-5733 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and ask for the refundable Executive Room with 1 King bed or 2 Queens). The rates there are anywhere from $85 to $120ish nightly. Or, if you are considering the Great Wolf Lodge see what others are saying about this full of fun property. They have very good to excellent reviews over-all.

    Indoor and Outdoor Water Fun

    As large as Dallas is, would you believe that the Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine Texas is the only Hotel in the Dallas Tx area with an Indoor Water Park? You would think that in a location with such a large populous and attracts so many visitors each year that there would be plenty to go around but that is not the case. So if you are looking for a Hotel that offers inside Water Fun, the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine Texas would be your best option.

    The Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine Tx has over 80,000 square feet devoted to the Water Park fun adventure. This amount of space is not only for the Indoor area but for the Outdoor Water play section as well. The Indoor Water Park is full of fun with a large Fort for the kids to play around and also a large 1,000 gallon bucket that tips and drenches everyone below. There are 4 Large Water slides as well as a couple of smaller ones. A wave pool is fun for the entire family but can get a little crowded at times, especially when the weather does not allow for the Outdoor area to be open. Enjoy a Lazy River for everyone but the adults can have a relaxing time in the large Jacuzzi. If it is nice and you can spend some time outside, the additional 2 Water Slides and fountains for the kids makes it easy to get away from the crowds. If you really want to be pampered, think about renting one fo the Cabanas. Additional information can be found at the:

    Indoor Waterpark
    Outdoor Waterpark

    If you are lucky enough to stay at the resort during the Hotter season, when the outdoor Water Park is open, you will feel less cramped and also have more options available during your stay.

    Impressive? but Costly

    Why would the Great Wolf lodge be described as Impressive with a Question Mark? It is very interesting when reading the reviews. Many people absolutely love this place and would continue to come back while others had the worst experience ever and would only come back for their kids. So what percentage levels are we looking at here:

    Estimate of Rating Levels

    Above Average 66
    Below Average 16

    As you can see, there are a number of people who love this resort but I would like the Approval numbers to be a little higher than what they are. On another note, the management does seem to care about any issues that arise so if you do have any problems during your stay, make sure that you tell them about it so they can make it right while you are there.

    Available Suites

    There is one room that offers a Jacuzzi Suite and that is the Whirlpool Suite. Some of the cheaper Suites, like the Family or Queen Sofa Suite are not much more than a regular hotel room. You do get a separation between the Sleeping and Living areas but you do not get a Kitchen with your stay. The larger Suites give you a lot of additional space with the ability to sleep up to 8 guests and also have separate sleeping areas. Some of the rooms have the option to include a balcony while others have a small loft area. All in all, the rooms are designed to give you a cabin feel and give you plenty of space to move around. For full information, take a look at the Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine Suites.

    Many more things to do

    What else is there to do at the Grapevine Great Wolf Lodge? The easy answer would be, Plenty! From a giant ropes course to the kids favorite, MagiQuest® where you purchase a wand setup for each individual child to unlock a magical world setup throughout the resort. On top of that, the family can also take in the large Game Room and even target each other in a friendly game of Lazer Frenzy. To find out more, check out the Activities at the Great Wolf Lodge Resort in Dallas.


    Getting Around the Resort

    One of the biggest complaints among guests are the slow, crowded Elevators. Staying on the first floor can keep you from having to deal with this frustration but the first floor also gets the most traffic and therefore is the noisiest floor to stay on.


    You can get everything you need to keep yourself from getting hungry at one of the many restaurants. The Loose Moose Cottage has a little bit of everything and is served in a Buffet Style arrangement. There are also a number of Quick Dining options by the Water Parks so you don’t have to leave the fun you are having. To see a full list of dining areas around the resort check out the Quick Facts about the Great Wolf Lodge Dallas.

    If you want some fun and excitement during your trip to Dallas, check out the Great Wolf Lodge Indoor Water Park Grapevine Texas. The Great Wolf Lodge is only minutes north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport and makes for a very nice stay, especially if you are looking to spend some quality time with the kids. They will love the Indoor Water Park and if it is nice outside, they will also have the option of playing in the Outdoor Water Park as well.

    Indoor Water Park near Dallas Texas?

    So you are going to Grapevine Tx, right out side of Dallas where it is known to be a really hot for most of the year. Why would you want to go to a resort with an Indoor Water Park? There are a number of reasons that I can think of. On the really hot days, you might just want some shade and get out of the heat of the sun for a while. What if a big storm rolls through, your kids will be thrilled that they still get to frolic and play in the water even when it is bad weather outside. If you have not been to Grapevine in the Winter, you might be surprised at just how chilly it can be. Over the past years, they have actually been hit with a number of ice storms.

    Family Fun for All

    When you include the Indoor Water Park at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine with the Outdoor Park, you have well over 80,000 Square feet of play area. The Indoor area has Attractions like, Large Water Slides, a nice Lazy River and even a Wave Pool. Add to this a large Kiddie Splash zone with a 1,000 gallon tipping bucket to drench all who walk beneath it.

    Slides for All

    Since you have a limited amount of space in any Indoor Water Park, a great way to pack more in is to take some of the rides outside. What I mean is, some of the Large Water Slides are so big that they would take up all of the space if they were completely housed in the enclosure so a way around this is to enclose the slide and put the main part outside. This allows you to start and finish inside but most of your slippery adventure takes you outside of the walls of this massive building. Enjoy 4 large Water Slides for the bigger kids and adults as well as Smaller Slides in the Kids Area.

    A rustic appearance but not a rustic stay when you visit the Great Wolf Lodge Grapevine Tx Suites close to the DFW airport. This resort offers so much that the others do not including and Indoor and Outdoor Water Park, Ropes Course and a large arcade to play in. You will not find these types of amenities anywhere else around Dallas. You have the option of staying in a Standard Suite, that is not much more than a regular Hotel Room or you can bump yourself up to one of the more accommodating Family Suites. All of the locations have bedding and furniture that feels a little more like staying at a log cabin and not a regular resort.

    Standard, Themed or Premium Suite

    As I mentioned before, the standard suites are not much more than a hotel room but if you step up to the Themed or Premium, you can get a lot more. If you have young kids, they might like the Wolf Den, KidKamp® or KidCabin® Suite with an enclosed area having bunk beds that separate them from the main area of the room. Understand that these are not actually rooms but more of an enclosure for them, and you, to have a little more privacy in your visit. In the mood for some romance? If so, the Whirlpool Suite might be a better option. I am not sure if I would get this room with the kids in tow but if you get a couple of days to yourself and want to stay somewhere different, this could be a great option. Most of the Themed Suites support having anywhere from 4 -6 guests in each room. If you need more space than that, the premium suites are a better option.

    Suites with Kitchen?

    None of these Suites have a Kitchenette or a Kitchen in them. The closest you can get to this is the Majestic Bear Suite that comes with large wet bar. Although you will not be cooking a large meal here, they do have a big table and seating for 6 people around the bar table. If you get something out, at least you have a place to sit down and enjoy it with everyone in the family.


    How far to walk?

    If you want the quickest route to the Water Parks, you can ask for a room that is closer to the front section of the building. If you are looking for a little more quiet, stay on the upper floors. It will take longer to get to the fun amenities but you will sleep better at night.

    Is there much of a difference in Price?

    Well, the bigger the room, normally, the nicer so expect to pay a little more when you stay in the Themed or Premium Suites. If you want to keep the cost down and you will not be in your room much anyway, just get one of the Standard Suites and spend your money elsewhere. As you read the reviews, the Great Wolf Lodge is going to be trying to get it everywhere you turn anyway.
