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.

This place was fabulous. Check in wasn’t until 4. I arrived at 2. I asked the nice lady at the front desk if she could put some groceries in a fridge until I could check in as I was going to hit some sites. She gladly obliged. When I arrived back around 6, the check in was easy and my groceries were cold. The room was fantastic. The bed was… Read more

When I arrived back around 6, the check in was easy and my groceries were cold. The room was fantastic. The bed was magnificent. There was hardly any wait for dinner that I just carried to my room. I had lasagna that was delicious. There was no check out as I just left my room cards on the bed and they emailed my receipt. I would definitely stay here again! Read less

If you want to stay in the park - which is highly recommended unless you want to come in for only one day, and spend most of that day driving - this is your place. Realize you are paying what you are paying for the access. Then relax! We had a mamma dear and her twins outside our window! OMG so cool! Went on several hikes, had a great time.… Read more
If you want to stay in the park - which is highly recommended unless you want to come in for only one day, and spend most of that day driving - this is your place. Realize you are paying what you are paying for the access. Then relax! We had a mamma dear and her twins outside our window! OMG so cool! Went on several hikes, had a great time. Linens were fine, there was not only a refrigerator and a hair dryer, there was a lighted make-up mirror! Glad I could look my best in the national park! The food situation is fine - again you are a captive audience so just roll with it. We took our own breakfast so that was fine, for dinner we ordered at the Deck - had an OK pizza and salad, enjoyed in the great outdoors. Really a lovely place. Do not let the negative reviews here dissuade you. Seriously when I was checking out the guy in front of me was complaining about his 2nd story windows being dirty!! Get real! this is not the Hilton! The desk clerk was so nice! Read less

No elevators (carries ALOT of luggage up 3 floors), and no air conditioning (usually not an issue), so be prepared. We were checked in about 1 1/2 late due to the room not being ready (staffing issues?) but the staff was very nice throughout our stay and actually gave us a discount because of this.

We stayed at the Lodge during July 2021 for 3 nights with our dog. We were in the Sequoia lodge and had a great time. The room was very big and the bed was comfortable. We read other reviews about food so we made sure to bring lots of breakfast and lunch items. The fridge is good sized and kept everything cold. We were on the first floor so getting set up was easy. Make sure to find a luggage cart outside before you attempt to bring everything to your room. "The Deck" is the outdoor restaurant that always has a line. Be prepared to wait. However they get the food out to you very quickly. My only complaint would be that they need more umbrellas on the deck as it was very hot and most tables went unused. Prices were not that high considering you are captive with no other places to go for a meal. Other than the weather - they were having a heatwave - everything worked out really well. We totally enjoyed our trip. Reminders - bring food, make sure to find a luggage cart before you start unloading your car, get up early to explore as areas fill up quickly (like General Sherman Tree) and you might not get to see what you want to when you want to, and check out Lodgepole for any items you left at home - their store is quite large.

We stayed one night during a quick visit to Sequoia in route to Yosemite. I would not recommend and avoid at all costs! There is no a/c, inedible food onsite, and lacks basic twenty first century accommodations - WiFi, blow dryer, water pressure, etc. If you are not accustomed to camping outdoors, this will not be a pleasant experience for you.
