The Great Wolf Lodges offers a 3-Diamond Family Suites for $150.00 + tax per night. Water-park passes are included in these prices for up to 4 persons per room. Extra persons will be charged $25. Great Wolf Lodge has provided the FAOA with a special rate; you must contact the FAOA to obtain the promotional code to receive the discounted rate. Regular rate is $199.00 per night. Adjacent to the Great Wolf Lodge parking lot is the Meijers shopping center, and parking at the Meijer shopping center for trailers, and cars is purely at-will. I checked with the Econlodge in Norwalk where we use to stay in the past their rate is $148.00 a night discounted.
The Great Wolf will allow FAOA members to consume non-alcoholic beverages and snacks in the parking lot between the hours of 11:00 PM and 7:00 AM. No meals, alcoholic beverages of any kind, open flames of any kind and food heating materials may be used outside of the suites. Individuals who disregard the Hotel and Federal policy will be charged $10.00 and may be subject to expulsion without a refund. In accordance with Hotel, State & Federal policies, please adhere to these rules. The Great Wolf is a family type Lodge. There is a no open alcoholic container in Sandusky and the Police consider the parking lot as a public place since anyone can pull in. I remember a few years back at the Holiday Inn. One of our members (Carla) was issue a summons by the Police and had to stay an extra day to pay the $120.00 fine. If you wish to have alcoholic drinks there is a very nice roomy lounge inside the Lodge. We can still sit by our cars in the evening and chat.
Also, you must reserve a minimum of two nights and use a credit card for the first nights room and tax as a required deposit at the time of your reservation. Great Wolf Lodge will accept all major credit cards.
