“A wonderful place to rest after exploring Sequoia National Park. Getting better all the time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We've stayed at Wuksachi twice so far and each time we've had a wonderful stay, minor issues aside. We whole-heartedly recommend Wuksachi Lodge to any visitor who prefer experience nature in comfort. Friendly and helpful staff. Location can't be beat. Wildlife around the lodge grounds is always a treat.

Room Tip: The corner premium rooms are worth thew extra room and additional views of the surrounding forest.

This lodge is in a beautiful location with in close proximity of the main tourist spots in the Sequoia National Park. The lodge itself is stunning with the dining room over-looking the forest. We had dinner and breakfast here and both were excellent in terms of quality and value for money. The rooms in the lodge were basic but nice and clean. The air conditioning/fan was not great but luckily the evening was not too warm so still had a good nights sleep.

Thank you for great review. We are thrilled to read that you enjoyed the entire experience from the food to lodging. Chef Graham and team will be pleased to read your feedback as I am. We do apologize that there is no Air conditioning at the lodge. Wuksachi does not experience many days of heat at 7000 ft but do and hope that down the line we will be able to accommodate the request. Please come visit us again, and as a reminder we are open year-round. All the best, Brandy Frederich, Assistant General Manager, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

Take advantage of the restaurant and the programs they offer such as Stargazing. You'll be close to some great hiking. Beware that bears could be on the lodge property at any time. There were fans in our room window, no A/C. The wifi was so slow that it was really unusable during our entire stay...took 10 minutes to load a google search page! The room was basic but very clean and the bathroom was clean.

Room Tip: Upper floors are warmer but quieter, and the rear rooms have a better view.

Thank for sharing your experience. I am glad you had the opportunity to enjoy the wildlife and participate in some programs. I apologize that there were challenges with the WIFI. We have been experiencing some challenges as a result of the road construction in the park. While it is minor construction it has impact our connectivity. Thanks for the recommendation on the restaurant. All the best, Brandy Frederich, Assistant General Manager, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

This was the only place we found to stay to we could see great trees and drive the General's Highway. I loved the lodge feel and after all the warnings about bears, we actually saw one on our way into the lodge!!

The room was big, the bed was comfy. Easy access to drive the scenic route one day, and we did the big trees the next day. We loved our dinner - we went early, got a window view. The service was superb, our waitress, Jen, was fun. We had cocktails, I had a "Whiskey Clover" which was refreshing. Great wine selection. My husband had the trout, which he liked and I had the bolognese, which was fine. We saved room for mexican and Irish coffees and the chocolate mousse torte. We had been hiking and we just had to walk to our rooms - it was a fun night.

You really have to eat here - there's no place else. The brunch is, well, brunch. Nothing spectacular, but ok. The dinner was a fun tasty experience - one of the best on our trip!

We had reservations and were seated promptly - even though it was a busy night, we weren't rushed and the waiters were keeping up with the flow.

Have just moved on after a couple of nights at Wuksachi with our 17 and 15 year old children. We thought Wuksachi was an excellent base to explore from. The rooms are large and whilst not luxurious are very comfortable and the setting for the lodge is beautiful. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there and all were very good and fairly priced (breakfast particularly good value) but I was glad I followed previous reviewers advice to book dinner ahead of time as otherwise we would not have got to eat at a sensible time. Staff all very nice. The lodge is not cheap but we thought it was worth the money for the location.

I was very dissapointed from the check in to the room. This is an expensive place and not worth the money. Just spend the day there and stay somewhere else. I got there about 4:45 to check in and was told right away that the room was not available. So I asked when check in was and they replied 4:00 and after. So basically whenever they get your room ready. I noticed several people waiting. I had reseverd and already paid for a double bed room because there was three of us. About 25 minutes later they came and said my room was ready. So drove up to the lodge and noticed right away that there was fans in the windows to the rooms. I am a hot natured person and this was not good for me. Got to the room and it was a king with a pull out bed. I called the front desk and they advised me they had overbooked and this was what I was getting even though I reserved it two months in advance and paid for it that same time. The room was nice and clean but my daughter had to sleep on a very uncomfortable fold out couch that creeked every time she moved. Also there was a small window unit in the adjoining room where the fold out was but didn't cool the room off. I would have never paid that much money for that type of service. Very dissappointed. The wifi never worked either.

We are sincerely sorry that your trip was not up to expectations and that the room you originally booked was not what you received. Regarding the check in time we were having challenges with our linen company impacting the timing of ready rooms, however we have resolved the issue by switching linen companies of recent date. These are not typical issues of the property and I am sorry it impacted your stay. Thank you for feedback. All the best, Brandy Frederich, Assistant General Manager, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
