As we were staying only one night at the Sequoia National Park we decided to stay "in" rather than outside it so we would not have to waste a lot of precious time getting in and out of the park. We were really pleased with the location of Wuksachi Lodge and its surroundings. The weather was beautiful but there was still a little snow on the ground in some areas so it was all green, crisp and fresh! The reception building which is separate from the sleeping buildings looks great inside and out. Check in was smooth and the reception staff was very friendly although we were surprised they do not speak very good English. We were actually having a hard time understanding everything they were telling us. The same happened at the little store they have where we bought snacks. The girl there was having a hard time understanding what we wanted. But they were friendly and we managed. We drove our car to the parking lot nearest to the building were our rooms were situated and then had to use trolleys to take our bags to our room. As we were given rooms on the 1st floor and the entrance to the building is on the 2nd floor we had to go down 2 flights of stairs to get all our bags to our rooms. As we had large, heavy bags from being on a 2 week road trip this was quite a task as one person in our party has a bad leg. For the rates they were charging during the Easter weekend, we feel they should really have offered assistance having given us rooms on the ground floor and not having informed us beforehand. We had a deluxe room which was only slightly larger than our friends standard room and although the room size was good the rest is nothing fancy. We did not feel it was worth the money. The decor needs updating and everything in the room looks "tired" and worn. Our friends room even had cobwebs on the ceiling! The entry way in our building was really dirty and dusty and so were the stairs and corridors to the rooms. We could also hear guests in the rooms above ours walking around. The positive aspects are free wifi and coffee and tea making facilities. We had dinner in the restaurant which was good but a little pricey. We felt they overprice everything as there are really no other options around. Breakfast was ok. You get to choose from a Continental breakfast which is a little cheaper and a hot breakfast where you can have eggs etc. The staff in the restaurant was nice and helpful.
My tip to other travelers is book well in advance so you get a good rate as it really is nothing special even though the surroundings are amazing.
