- COVID-19: By booking a reservation with Great Wolf, Guest (as defined herein) acknowledges the inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 that exists by visiting any public place where other people are present. Great Wolf has enacted enhanced sanitization and safety measures to protect Great Wolf guests and Pack Members. Guest further acknowledges and agrees to comply with all safety requirements set out by Great Wolf, whether identified in advance of the reservation dates or otherwise informed while the Guest is on property. Without limiting the generality of anything herein, Guest expressly agrees to comply with face covering protocols in place at the time of the Guest stay. Further, in the event a change in reservations is requested due to family illness, the Deposit Policy, Non-Refundable Deposit Policy, Cancellation Policy, and Change Policy more fully set out below may be modified by Great Wolf, in its sole discretion.
- Deposit Policy: We are a pre-deposit resort. Your card will be charged the first night’s lodging plus tax and applicable fees. We do not accept personal checks.
Fees include any applicable additional person fees and the resort fee. Each is applied to all reservation on a nightly basis. This policy may vary on suites contracted through Great Wolf Lodge’s group sales department. Additional person fees are applied when the base occupancy of the suite is exceeded. Additional guests may be added, up to the maximum occupancy of each individual suite. The additional person fee is $50 ($75 at Great Wolf Niagara Falls) and will be applied to guests three years and older. All occupants, regardless of age must be included on your reservation. Additional person fees will be adjusted accordingly if changes are made to your reservation.
If there is a remaining balance, it is settled at check in. In the event that there is a remaining balance post check out, you hereby authorize Great Wolf Lodge to apply funds you have on deposit against what you owe or charge your credit or debit card on file. The deposit policy can change based on the promotion applied.
- Non-Refundable Deposit Policy: Reservation deposits for the Early Saver promotion are subject to a non-refundable deposit after the time of booking. Reservation deposits for cabanas are considered earned and non-refundable if the reservation is canceled by Guest within 48 hours of check-in. Notwithstanding, in the event of cancelation of Cabana by Hotel at any time due to inclement weather, unavailability, or any other reason, the deposit will be refunded.
- Standard Change and Cancellation Policy: Guests making a reservation eight or more days from their arrival date have 24 hours in which to modify or cancel a reservation with no penalties or fees. After that point, guests who wish to modify their reservation are subject to the following change fees:
$25 if reservation is modified 8 or more days from arrival
$50 if reservation is modified less than 8 days from arrival
After applying the change fee, we can place the remaining balance on a deposit hold for up to 12 months to allow guests additional time to determine a future stay date if a change in their reservation is needed.
