Wuksachi Lodge at Sequoia

Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon and Death Valley

Virgin rating

The hotel

Set amongst the shaded dappled groves of Sequoia National Park, Wuksachi provides an elegant approach to accommodation with a full-range of modern fixtures and fittings to compliment the sublime surrounding scenery. Throughout the lodge you'll discover rich strains of cedar and stone which have been placed to make the most of the enchanted environment, with floor to ceiling windows and snug fireplaces maximising an array of enduring natural images. A full-service restaurant allows guests to prepare for the day ahead, or recount events during the evening, over a plate of sumptuous Sierra Alpine cuisine; and just before you hit the hay there's a handy cocktail lounge for just one last cheeky nightcap. What with all that fine food and fresh forest air, getting a good night's rest is never in doubt and thanks to a good choice of hotel standard en-suite guest rooms, there's no better place to recuperate in order to do it all again at sun rise.

We enjoyed eating in the Peaks Restaurant while traveling through the park. We arrived exactly at 5 PM (opening time for dinner) and were already the 6th or 8th party in line to be seated.

We enjoyed eating in the Peaks Restaurant while traveling through the park. We arrived exactly at 5 PM (opening time for dinner) and were already the 6th or 8th party in line to be seated. If you're arriving any later, you probably need reservations. The dining room is attractive enough with large windows that allow diners to enjoy the trees outside. The menu was limited and somewhat pricey which is understandable, considering that this location is somewhat inaccessible by delivery trucks. Our server Morgan was attentive and friendly. Our meals were good, but somewhat slow coming out of the kitchen. Peaks is closed during the mid-afternoon. (Only pizza is offered midday.) If Peaks were open more hours, they might have less congestion during the dinner hour. Of course, maybe they're struggling with the same understaffing that many restaurants experience now. Read less

The room was very spacious and clean and comfortable. Shower was small because shower head was on wrong wall and no curved shower curtain. Toilet paper was very thin. Restaurant if you didn’t have reservations for dinner it was over a 2-hour wait. Service was very slow. Food was good. Desk clerk very friendly checking in and out.

While the park was extraordinarily beautiful, our stay at Wuksachi Lodge was very disappointing. The main lodge and restaurant was very nice and staff at reception desk and restaurant were professional and attentive. The rooms, housed away from the lodge with a downhill roughly paved parking area were quite the surprise. While the room was clean and adequately appointed, the trip uphill, pushing a luggage trolley at 7000 ft elevation was challenging for two senior citizens. We then discovered that there were no elevators and our room was on the 3rd floor. I feel that this information was not clearly noted on the website, or when I booked the room. I requested no housekeeping during my two night stay, my instructions were not followed and I returned home minus two pieces of expensive clothing. Read less
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Wheelchair accessible room ok, not sure if there’s a way to get to the room without stairs though

Jun 10, 2024 MarieinParis Orange, California

Wheelchair accessible room with a king bed was okay, but I am not sure how you’re supposed to get there without going up stairs! The room had a roll-in shower. The door to the bathroom was a sliding door, which was difficult to open/close and squeaky. There was enough room for me to maneuver my wheelchair. The shower curtain smelled awful. I… Read more
Wheelchair accessible room with a king bed was okay, but I am not sure how you’re supposed to get there without going up stairs! The room had a roll-in shower. The door to the bathroom was a sliding door, which was difficult to open/close and squeaky. There was enough room for me to maneuver my wheelchair. The shower curtain smelled awful. I thought the bed was comfortable. There was also a couch. Customer service was lacking! We didn’t get clear directions on how to get from Wuksachi Lodge to our room in the Sequoia building. We booked 3 rooms. The key cards for 2 of them didn’t work. There was no soap in one of the rooms, and the front desk said there wasn’t anything they could do about it. I left my Tempurpedic pillow (in a purple pillow case, so it definitely stood out from the hotel pillows). I called when I realized it, and the front desk said they would check with housekeeping. I didn’t hear from them (it turns out it’s because I didn’t have cell reception), so we went out of our way to stop by Wuksachi Lodge. In the meantime, Adriana left a voicemail saying housekeeping didn’t find it. Yet, when we asked the front desk, they had us wait around an hour while they “checked with housekeeping.” I don’t understand the lack of communication or why they weren’t able to find the pillow! Later on, we saw a serious car accident had happened on Generals Highway, meaning the road to the park exit in Three Rivers was blocked. We drove to Wuksachi Lodge to get more information. They had no idea that anything had happened, and didn’t look into it. As other reviewers have said, this hotel really only has one thing going for it: location! Read less

Bad value. I stayed here because it was conveniently located in the park. The room itself was very nice. The problem I had was with the food, lunch and dinner specifically. For lunch my only option was the pizza deck. You had to buy a whole pizza. I can’t eat an entire pizza! There were a few other choices. I got a chicken salad wrap, it was… Read more
Bad value. I stayed here because it was conveniently located in the park. The room itself was very nice. The problem I had was with the food, lunch and dinner specifically. For lunch my only option was the pizza deck. You had to buy a whole pizza. I can’t eat an entire pizza! There were a few other choices. I got a chicken salad wrap, it was not good. You had to eat on the deck in the sun. Some of the tables had umbrellas. The dining room was blocked off. Ridiculous. The choices for dinner were also limited. I got chicken wings, they were horrible. They were dry and rubbery and they were all drumsticks. My decision to stay here was based on food availability and quality. I have stayed at many National Park Lodges and this one was disappointing. You are better off staying in Three Rivers which is outside the park. There you have restaurants to choose from. Read less
