After a very interesting trip to Great Wolf Lodge Manteca, I realized that there was only one way we were able to truly enjoy our vacation and that was by purchasing a cabana! Read on for a full review of renting a Great Wolf Lodge Cabana in 2023!
We arrived at Great Wolf Lodge Manteca on a Friday afternoon around 4pm. Check-in was chaotic and the resort was packed! It was no surprise that there were no chairs available that evening. We roamed around for around 20 minutes before finding one chair on which we piled our belongings.
I ended up calling the concierge to book a cabana for the next day because there was no way I was going to fight for chairs with our fellow birthday participants.
The cabanas are located around the perimeter of the indoor water park. Although pricey ($300-$500 depending on the day of the week), the cabana is definitely the way to go, because you can have your own private area. We were able to celebrate our birthday girl in a space that was dedicated to our family.
What do the Great Wolf Lodge Manteca cabanas come with?
We were given cabana #8 which was nice with plenty of seating. There was a couch, a table with 4 chairs, and two loungers. The cabana also had a TV, four bottled water, towels, a fridge, and a safe to keep important belongings.
Cabana #8 was also fairly close to the restrooms but tucked away so that we didn’t feel crowded by other guests.
It’s free to get the Great Wolf Lodge Manteca towels but 15 dollars for each one not returned. So bring your own towels to avoid that headache.

Around Noon we were assigned a dedicated server which was nice although you cannot order alcoholic drinks through your server. The menu was very limited and we could only order food from specific restaurants on-site. There was also a phone, and book with menus from the different places in the hotel.
