“Good Inside Park Lodging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Just remember you are in a National Park Lodge. We stayed in the Stewart building and the rooms are average but large. The mattress and pillows are quite worn. We went in late June during a very hot spell. The rooms were quite hot even when we had the ceiling fan, small fan and window fan blowing. It did cool down the first night but the second night was very hot. Learned quickly to make reservations for dinner right at check-in. Food was ok and staff friendly and helpful. Will definitely return during cooler season of the year.

Comfortable accommodation, friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful location, and of course there is plenty to explore in the surrounding national park. Plenty of wildlife - deer roam nearby and don't seem concerned about proximity to humans.

About the only challenge is dining. The rooms have no self-catering, so you have to look elsewhere. The Lodge restaurant is fine, but a little expensive and pretentiously ambitious. It is fine to eat there once - but you might not want to dine that way every night. Similarly the breakfast buffet is a little pricey for what it is. At the other end of the spectrum the nearby Lodgepole offers a rather unpleasant burger outlet (smelly inside, fly-blown outside) and a more reasonable deli which is only open for lunch.

We stayed at the Wuksachi Lodge for one night. There are a lot of trails right off the main parking lot. But as a runner, the trail to Lodgepole isn't an easy one most of it is down hill and it is full of loose rocks so be careful! It is a great walking trail though.. Beautiful scenery. Returning to the room from an exhausting day of hiking and exploring the Sequoia National Park was fantastic. Large rooms, hot shower what more could you ask for? We had reservations at the restaurant in the lodge at 7:45 and we arrived 10 minutes early and checked in but we were told we could not be seated, although 2/3 of the restaurant was empty. (Strike one) Once we were seated it took about 15 minutes just to get our drink order in. and we didn't get bread (Strike two) Once we ordered our meals it took about an hour for the food to come out which was ridiculous considering how small the portions were. Plus, they got my brothers order wrong and still charged us extra. (Strike three) The penne pasta was very good and although they had poor service their chocolate mousse cake was exceptional! A drive into Lodgepole for lunch or dinner is well worth it. Overall, I was very happy with my stay at the Wuksachi Lodge and I will defiantly be returning.

Last minute reservation but scored a gem. Used 2 superior rooms which were expensive but probably par for the course. The majestic scenery combined with an ample facility made our stay memorable. We scored a bear sighting on the morning. The only negative experience was the lodge touted 'wolverton BBQ'. They advertised to arrive any time 5-7:30 but we discovered if you were not there at 5, you may as well skip it. Food was interesting, entertainment mediocre at best. Stick with the lodge restaurant breakfast, box lunch or dinner and you can't go wrong.

We had a fantastic stay in Sequoia, and staying at the Wuksachi was a great part of it. On the first morning, we woke up early and walked out the door to see a family of deer munching away on the bushes outside the lodge. Where else do you get that, and hot showers at the end of a long day of hiking? To be sure, the lodge is relatively simple in decor but the rooms are large and comfortable (we had a family of four in one room with an extra bed with no problem at all). Breakfast at the lodge was great, with a choice of full buffet with everything for $12 and half buffet (basically fruit, cereal, yogurt and pastries) for $6. We had dinner there one night but were not very impressed by the offerings (the salmon was too salty and the vegan burger inedible). With respect to the negative reviews, if one wants a nice, comfortable place to sleep and shower while spending most of one's time exploring the park then the Wuksachi is a great place. If one wants a full service five star hotel, this isn't it.

What can I say, saw a bear so giving this place 5 stars. Rooms comfy, dinner booked 1 day in advance, yummy raspberry champagne cocktail and v enjoyable experience all round. Most expensive place on trip but thought loads better than Yosemite experience.

I am shocked by the negative comments made by other reviewers. You are in a national park! If you are looking for the Ritz, you are in the wrong place and should plan a different type of vacation. If you are out to enjoy nature with comfort and relaxation in mind, this is your place. Is the WiFi great? No. But once again, you are in a national park! If you cannot make do with limited technology for a short time, then once again, you are in the wrong place. We LOVED everything about our stay here. Immedaiately after arriving, we set off on a short walk from a trail on the property. Within five minutes, we saw our first bear! Amazing! The rooms, while not luxurious, are very clean and satisfactory. All staff (gift shop, desk, cleaning) were all friendly. We stayed for three nights, and were so glad we made the choice to stay here. For the convenience and atmosphere, this is THE place to stay.
