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 mattress needed replacing. It felt as though it sloped from the feet towards the head. Also, one had to grasp the edges of the mattress to prevent sinking towards the middle of the mattress. Great location, though!!

We spent New Year’s Eve here as a family. It was the perfect little getaway with a gorgeous view. Comfortable hotel rooms, lovely lodge lobby, fun game room for kiddos and a great restaurant and bar. The shuttle service made it simple to travel to various spots nearby. A great spot to bring kids!

Amazing place, hotel situated in the middle of sequoia forest with picturesque views. Everything was perfect except service on the reception: our room 317 wasn’t ready after 1,5 hour after official check in time. After arguing with hotel personnel the room was immediately ready. Note: there was only one place to have a dinner and it was crowded.… Read more

This is a great jumping off hotel for exploring Sequoia and Kings Canyon. We arrived with snow on the ground but the roads were in good shape. Staff was attentive and courteous at check-in. Expect a short hike from your parking lot to the hotel room. They have luggage carts that should help the trek up the hill. Good insulation in the rooms… Read more
This is a great jumping off hotel for exploring Sequoia and Kings Canyon. We arrived with snow on the ground but the roads were in good shape. Staff was attentive and courteous at check-in. Expect a short hike from your parking lot to the hotel room. They have luggage carts that should help the trek up the hill. Good insulation in the rooms because we got hot at night when it was below freezing outside. Accommodations are average and could use some updating. You are basically captive there for hot food. I would do everything you can to avoid the restaurant. I'll review that one separately. Read less

Stayed at the Wuksachi lodge for a few days and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are basic, about what you’d expect in a National Park. The best part is the location, at least in the winter since most other lodging is closed or too far away. You can get to all the main hikes to see the trees from Wuksachi very easily. The drives are within 10 miles,… Read more
Stayed at the Wuksachi lodge for a few days and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are basic, about what you’d expect in a National Park. The best part is the location, at least in the winter since most other lodging is closed or too far away. You can get to all the main hikes to see the trees from Wuksachi very easily. The drives are within 10 miles, so no long distance. The restaurant is nice, but the food very average. The problem in the winter is there are no other options. Just make sure you make a reservation to eat there since weekends it’s a must. Finally, in the winter there is NO GAS in the parks. You must Fill your tank up before entering the park. We found out the hard way and had to waste 1-1/2 hours total to go to Three Rivers to get gas. Read less
