I reserved a handicapped room in May 2013 and was very disappointed. Before you rent a room from their website, the Waksachi Lodge takes great stride to ensure that you are handicapped. However, they never tell you how "able" you must be to reach their room. The handicap room is located in the furthest room from the lodge. You will park your vehicle in the second closest building to the lodge. Once you leave your vehicle, you must traverse a steep, crooked, and angled ramp to the third building. After several rests along the ramp, and on inside the building, you would think your room will be near the door. No - you will find your room at the end of the hall. The room will smell dank and musty. You will struggle to open the windows because you have no air conditioning. After I gained my composure, I called the front desk to complain about my accommodations. They were quite understanding (probably have heard these complaints before) and sent someone to help open the windows and freshen the room. The lodge sent a service van to the back door of the cabin to pick us up for dinner at the lodge. For the life of me, I cannot understand why the handicap parking was not located at this level. We found the dinner at the lodge to be average in quality and high in price. The breakfast was poor. The hot water for tea was tepid at best and the coffee was lukewarm. Even after mentioning this to our server, it wasn't changed. $7.95 was too high for this cup of cool tea and warm oatmeal. All-in-all we were extremely disappointed with this establishment. This was the worst stay we have ever had at in a state and national park.
