“average quality but not much choice around there :-(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stayed there for one night in May. They gave us a key for a bedroom qhich was already occupied... We then had to go to another building to have another bedroom, but no one helped us with our luggage. One of the window couldn't be locked, which is not very safe when your bedroom is on the ground floor. The restaurant is good though, especially the breakfast.
The bedroom quality is average, like a motel.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great place to stay, excellent service, reasonable food, and the accommodation is fine. But if you have a choice don't get room 321, machinery next door ( a/c I assume ) kicks in every 2 mins like a tractor driving through the room. Might suit farmers :-)

The location is spectacular! We came in the winter and the walk from the lodge to the restaurant was so beautiful. For the price, the lodge itself could have been nicer, but I certainly don't regret staying here and if I had the money, would be happy to return. The lodge itself was just okay. The location was a stunner.

Room Tip: Be prepared to carry your luggage, but it's really worth a bit of lugging for the location.

Well situated for hiking all through Sequoia and visiting the Marble Cave. Breakfast and dinner is really quite good and reasonably priced. Bar area is well stocked. One always wonders when you have few close options to choose from whether the food and service will be good. But it is quite good for being in the wilderness.

Limited cell phone and wifi but the reason we are all up there in the first place is to escape the modern world so don't be put off by that. Lots of parking but it can be a little walk to your room. There is free bell service and plenty of luggage trolleys. It is possible to get over to Kings Canyon but it is an easier option just to stay at the John Muir Lodge. I wish the Wuksachi had the outdoor porch to sit on at night like the John Muir but that is my only regret.

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd floor room to avoid stairs up or down. Be sure to make dinner reservations a day or so...

Wuksachi Lodge, from what we could tell, was the best place to stay in Sequoia - Kings Canyon. That said, we had hoped for a room where we did not need to lug our bags up and down stairs. Be sure to ask at checkin for a room that you can get to easily -- not knowing the configuration, we asked for a ground floor room, but found that the entry was one floor up. The hotel offers help with baggage, but it is pretty much a self-service operation. There are no hotel rooms in the dining building. The room was spacious -- it was hot when we arrived, but a fan was provided quickly, and we slept well!

Room Tip: Ask for a view room in Sequoia or Silliman buildings that don't require you to haul bags up or d...

The Wuksachi Lodge is Ok but not brilliant. The rooms are a good size. We were told we got upgraded which ended up putting us in the a room that was the longest distance from the main area. As the hotel is quite a distance from anything else you ate in the restaurant but I had no complaints as the food was very good and the staff were really attentive, especially the young girl who was doing the bar.

Room Tip: Buy a few things (water etc) before you get to the Lodge,

Before I review the hotel, it almost didn't happen if not for Everett. We were on a 2 week trip throughout California with my wife, daughter and niece. I screwed-up the reservation and booked the wrong day - one day after we planned to arrive. When we got there, they made me aware of my mistake. As I was standing there wondering what my next move was going to be, I saw them turn away to other folks that need rooms and as they were full and so where other hotels up to 30 miles away (which is couple hours of driving on those roads). My family was not going to happy after all driving from LA. Everrett called the GM and convinced to give us the room they hold in case they have messed up. He saved me! we spend 2 great nights there. Buffet breakfast was great the wait staff very knowlledgeable about the hiking trails. Accommodations aren't the Four Seasons but very nice for a lodge. Staying "in" the park makes exploring it that much easier. we loved it.
