This is maybe our 5th time staying at the Wuksachi Lodge because we no longer camp and there isn't a motel in the area. With a reservation, check-in was speedy. The main building houses the Lobby, restaurant, gift shop, registration desk, and mtg. rooms downstairs. Rooms are in 3 separate buildings with their own parking lot, in an adjacent forest area. No elevators, but you can request help from the front desk. If out at night, bring a flashlight because the parking lot and path between the rooms and main building is very dark.
This time we were in a double-queen room which was spacious with 2 tables, 3 chairs, small refrigerator, tv/dresser, closet, and a bench just inside the door, probably for removing snow clothing in the winter. No air-conditioning, just fans in the window plus a ceiling fan, and no safe. The standard bathroom was well-maintained. I thought our squeeky bathroom door might disturb neighbors, so I left the housekeeper a note and, by the time we returned to our room in the late afternoon, it had been fixed by the maintenance crew.
Reservations are mandatory for dinner at the restaurant. The tables are all "taken" and walkins are disappointed, although I saw some able to be served in the small bar area just outside the dining room. Notice the sign at the registration desk for the all-you-can-eat barbeque at nearby Wolverton Meadow. You purchase your tickets here. The park's support group, Sequoia Natural History Assn., has a speaker at the barbeque portraying, in period costume, someone from the early days of the park. Another activity we took advantage of was a nighttime astronomy walk, also lead by a SNHA member. It began in the hotel's lobby, we walked a short distance behind the building to a very dark parking lot, and was a wonderful experience seeing constellations; bring a good flashlight!
No cell signal, at least for us, and the only wi-fi signal is in the lobby of the main building.
