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.

It was last month that my friend & I stayed at the Wuksachi Lodge. We had a couple of issues with our room and the management and front desk staff went absolutely above and beyond to resolve our issues. What an absolute pleasure they were, attentive and accommodating. We would like to thank especially the General Manager, Brett Archer for his professional manner and his personal handwritten note of apology, Incredible! The front desk staff was also so very accommodating and understanding. Thanks Michelle and Brennan! Can’t wait to return to this fabulous lodge✨ Read less

After reading a number of poor to average reviews prior to our visit, my expectations were pretty low. Have to say, Wuksachi exceeded my expectations. Our standard room in the Stewart Bldg was nice, clean, roomy, internet and had all of the amenities we would expect plus a refrig in the room. The staff were accommodating, not real special in any specific way but polite and attentive. My only possible and not firm criticism was the food and menu choices. The choices were minimal, pizza, salads, sandwiches, plus some other higher-end specials. The menu was fine with us. We didn't go for anything close to fine dining and were able to have some good food at reasonable prices We didn't try breakfast but it looked the best vs the lunch & dinner menus. Read less

For the price, this hotel was sub-standard. The customer service folks were fine but the facilities are poor. What is up with the National Park Service hotels? Why do they have to be so bad? The room was filthy. Found used towels, pet food and other debris on the carpet, No air conditioning. Terrible water pressure in the shower and faucet. No… Read more
