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.

These are difficult times and we were worried about all the potential issues. It didn’t take long to recognize the mitigation strategies in place. The “Clean Team” is constantly at work to insure your safety. Dining is on deck is well organized and the pizza was amazing by the way. Our room was spacious and functional, I just wish the toilet was a little higher. WiFi is excellent when it works and it usually does. No one enters your room till you checkout, which I thought was well thought out. Read less

We were lucky enough to stay the opening weekend after the COVID shut downs. Check-in was strictly at 4pm so we spent some time walking around the grounds near the lodge. Great kid friendly trails. Masks are required inside and a cleaning team is constantly walking around wiping down common areas. The rooms are in separate buildings away from the main lobby lodge. While it's a short drive to park near the rooms and unload your luggage, it's an easy walk if you are just going to/from the restaurant. Be ready to walk a little up to your individual building, but they do have push carts to load up your luggage. Shuttles are not running at this moment so you miss out on that amenity but being 10-15 minutes away from the General Sherman tree is unbeatable. We ended up deciding last minute to go to General Sherman around 630pm and had moments where we were the only ones by the tree. The pizza deck didn't open until 530pm for dinner and had a very limited menu but it was quick and tasty. The room was decent, a little outdated but more than sufficient. Nice toiletries and a mini-fridge. For breakfast, they offer free coffee to guests and a variety of prepackaged breakfast items(burritos, pastries, muffin sandwich) for purchase. I found these reasonably priced and good quality. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the location is more than worth it. You can't beat the view walking up to the lodge! Read less

We stayed on property for one night. Had one of the superior rooms (with a separate television area) in the Sherman Lodge. The room was huge, comfortable and clean. Guestrooms are in buildings set apart from the main lodge building. All of the staff from the front desk, to housekeeping to the dining room were helpful and pleasant to talk to. So secluded in Sequoia, and tired from our travels, we ate dinner in the restaurant and had the breakfast buffet the next morning. Nice airy dining room. Both meals were satisfactory. Had a cocktail at the bar and wine with dinner. Unfortunately, tired from travels, quick turn around AND elevation, I made a classic mistake leaving a valuable ring on a ledge in the bathroom upon departure. I didn't realize the ring was not on my finger till we arrived at our Yosemite hotel that evening. Distressed, I immediately called Wuksachi Lodge to ask them to check lost and found. I called the following day to hear the housekeeper had, indeed, located my ring AND turned it in. Manager took my information to ship the ring to me. Management followed up with the tracking number on the package. Ring has arrived in Savannah and I am forever grateful to the honest housekeeper who turned in a very unique family heirloom. MANY THANKS to the Sherman Lodge housekeeper and management for saving my day! Read less

Isolated for sure with little in the way of activities nearby, apart from the great wild forest land, the Lodge is a fine home base. Rooms are in buildings about 150 yards from the Lodge and the Lodge is for dining or hanging out. Food is good, menu varied. Rooms are standard, well maintained. It is a great place for a quiet retreat.

Our family group recently stayed here in 4 different rooms. All of the rooms were clean and neat. The beds were comfortable in 3 of them with one of them being very soft in the middle. The carpets and furniture not as aged as one would expect in this old of a Lodge. There is a very weak wifi signal as advertised. We did discover you can use the phones in the rooms to call home for no charge. There was no Micro Waves in any of the rooms so be prepared. One room near by was using a hot plate to cook which could be dangerous. The walls are a little thin so you may hear kids running down the hallway or in one case someone having a loud conversation in the hallway at 6AM. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful checking us in and out to our rooms. Read less
