Wuksachi Lodge at Sequoia

Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon and Death Valley

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.

Wonderful location and property! The manager, Brett Archer, seems to be everywhere..... checking in guests, pouring coffee, juggling daily tasks, and he was always a welcome sight, while certainly dealing with the challenges of reopening. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. We loved the refrigerator in the rooms and the meal service,… Read more
Wonderful location and property! The manager, Brett Archer, seems to be everywhere..... checking in guests, pouring coffee, juggling daily tasks, and he was always a welcome sight, while certainly dealing with the challenges of reopening. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. We loved the refrigerator in the rooms and the meal service, while limited, was more than adequate. Our family will certainly return. Thank you Brett and staff! Read less

We were in the Stewart Building from March 31, 2021-April 2, 2021. The staff was friendly, the building was fine for a National Park (basic and dated). The food was cafeteria-like and somewhat pricy, but again, in line with the National Park system. There was no real alternative for a hot meal this early in Spring, so we were grateful. We… Read more
We were in the Stewart Building from March 31, 2021-April 2, 2021. The staff was friendly, the building was fine for a National Park (basic and dated). The food was cafeteria-like and somewhat pricy, but again, in line with the National Park system. There was no real alternative for a hot meal this early in Spring, so we were grateful. We ate late (7 pm) the first night and two of the 4 entrees were sold out, so eat earlier if you can. During our stay, dinner was served from 5:30-8 pm and the line was out the door at 5:30 pm. I would definitely stay here again, it suited our needs. Read less

To enjoy this hotel it is best to keep expectations low and be pleasantly surprised. Its simple and effective for having a place to rest your head and spend more of your time out in the park.

To enjoy this hotel it is best to keep expectations low and be pleasantly surprised. Its simple and effective for having a place to rest your head and spend more of your time out in the park. My family stayed for three nights and it met our needs well. We were four adults and the Superior Room was a good size. I believe they're the only rooms with window air units. We appreciated it in August! Try to get it with two beds because we had a king bed and two sleeper sofas and those sleeper sofas are not comfortable. Also, be aware that there are just stairs and loading in and out from the parking lot to the hotel rooms can be an ordeal. We would have appreciated help from the hotel staff but we got the job done. I'm so glad I researched ahead of time and learned there would not be a coffee maker or microwave. (there was a small fridge) We brought a microwave, snacks, drinks, and cooler with fresher food from home and it saved us from having to eat the random (and overpriced) food at the park. I highly recommend meal planning ahead of time to avoid eating at the park (especially if you're a healthy or picky eater). Pack up a couple coolers and you'll be set for success. We were very glad we did! Especially since it was my dad's birthday and we wanted everything to be special. It was nice eating the oatmeal and fruit we brought along from our little alcove that overlooked pretty tree scenery. And drinking the instant coffee we brought along too. Took a lot of stress out of meals and gave us more freedom for exploring. It was nice to stay central to the park and not have to drive the windy road from three rivers. Don't expect luxury at the hotel but do enjoy the natural scenery. There is no service and the wifi didn't really work so get all that stuff done before to be present on your trip :) We saw a cute family of deer on our way out, saw some stunning sunsets, and enjoyed incredible hikes. I recommend the longer drive to Kings Canyon for a beautiful experience with way less crowds. Read less

It's very conveniently located in Sequoia National Park with trails from the Lodge and also is near the corridor to Kings Canyon. Unfortunately roads were closed due to snow to Kings Canyon in early March 2021. The room that we stayed in had a musty odor like someone had their wet clothing on the carpet during their stay. The bathroom also had a dirty wet rag smell. I'm sensitive to smells and I asked housekeeping to clean it and they gave me a spray bottle to help with the smell and never got around to cleaning to bathroom. It was difficult to relax with such smells but my husband seemed ok with it. The Superior room was spacious with a King sized bed, seating in a separate section and also more seating with a tv , sofa and dining table behind a barn door. It had potential to be nice. We propped open the window to air out the space during the day during our stay. It actually helped to have masks! LOL. What can one expect as far as service during a pandemic? The food is pretty much pizza, some dinky and expensive salad selections and cafeteria sandwiches all of which were national park pricey. I actually really liked the cheese on the pizzas, though. They also had selections of the day which were just under $20. Read less
