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.

The lodge is perfectly located and is only a 10 min drive to the Carl park for mono rock and 5 mins to general sherman and the big trees forest. There was still heavy snow in the area which only made it more beautiful!! Our room was clean, warm and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and we loved Three Peaks Restaurant!! Just make sure you book a table before you arrive as they are very busy. We loved this place and highly recommend it Read less

MEH. Front desk people were friendly enough and the room was fine. Nothing really special about this place. If we had it to do over again we'd have stayed another night in Three Rivers (at the Lazy J). We've been to several National Parks which all had the lesser expensive place to get a meal. Not so here.....granted we went in March and all… Read more

If we had it to do over again we'd have stayed another night in Three Rivers (at the Lazy J). We've been to several National Parks which all had the lesser expensive place to get a meal. Not so here.....granted we went in March and all the places were not yet open. It wasn't bad....but for the difference in price from our place in Three Rivers, you'd expect more. Read less

We chose this lodge due to its location - which is most convenient to the parks. With that being said, there is lots of room for improvement in several areas.

We chose this lodge due to its location - which is most convenient to the parks. With that being said, there is lots of room for improvement in several areas. You check-in at the main complex where the restaurant and gift shop is located. Rooms are located in one of three buildings a few minutes away from the main complex. We were not offered luggage carts, bell service, or any tips whatsoever on getting our luggage from a distant parking lot up to our rooms. Getting to our room consisted of navigating narrow, twisty walkways covered in slush, gravel and ice with walls of snow that we drug our suitcases through. It wasn't easy and our suitcases got very wet and dirty. The room was comfy but certainly nothing special. Decor is typical "lodge." There were no bars of soap - only the pump type. I am not sure how they expect you to get soap when taking a bath if the soap is mounted on the wall over your head. Bathroom lighting was horrible and the rooms seem a little dated. The only dining option is in the main complex and service there was quite poor. Costs are high, choices are few, and quality is lacking. The location was perfect here, but we found many areas that needed vast improvements. Staff seemed rude, not well trained and inattentive. The property was not well-maintained and not very clean or accessible. Trash cans overflowed in the main building and tables were not cleaned in a timely manner in the restaurant. Management needs to step it up! I was quite disappointed with our overall stay here. Read less

Our King Bed room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was clean. Check in was easy and the front desk was very helpful. Parking lot was a bit far from our building and the walkway was very dark at night and ICY. But it was winter so I can't complain. I'd stay here again. Avoid the restaurant though. Or just order a salad… Read more

We stayed in the Siliman Building of the Wuksachi lodge complex. The room was large & clean with modern décor, couch, TV, mini fridge, good lighting & with mountain views. The bathroom was also large with very good lighting & fully stocked with toiletries, hairdryer etc. No issue with the climate/temperature control of the room. In the end,… Read more
We stayed in the Siliman Building of the Wuksachi lodge complex. The room was large & clean with modern décor, couch, TV, mini fridge, good lighting & with mountain views. The bathroom was also large with very good lighting & fully stocked with toiletries, hairdryer etc. No issue with the climate/temperature control of the room. In the end, it wasn’t amazing & it wasn’t terrible – It was a good room. Tip 1) Main Lodge building is location of Restaurant, that also serves Breakfast (not included in our room cost). Prepare for a 6-8 minute walk outside -depending on building you are in. Tip 2) All rooms are located in one of the 3 buildings that are on the property. You will be stopping at the main lodge building to check-in/out. Then driving to a parking lot, taking all your belongings up to your building/room. Room & Food is a bit pricey, but you are out in the middle of nowhere up in those mountains. - However the Scenery is amazing, this is why we were there. Read less
