Over Wuksachi Lodge & Village
Deze gezellige lodge ligt in het hart van het Sequoia Nationaal Park, in het bosgebied van het Giant Forest. De Wuksachi Lodge & Village biedt de mogelijkheid om het hele jaar door te genieten van leuke activiteiten en natuurlijk de torenhoge sequoia's. Het is nabij populaire bezienswaardigheden gelegen, zoals de Giant Forest Grove en the Big Trees. Het Sequoia National Park is uitermate geschikt voor het maken van prachtige wandelingen. Het is ook ideaal gelegen voor een bezoek aan Kings Canyon National Park, gelegen in het schitterende gedeelte van de Sierra Nevada Mountains. Hier vindt u diepe, door gletsjers uitgeslepen kloven, ontelbare meren en veel watervallen. De kamers zijn allen sfeervol ingericht.

Sequoia National Park is opgericht in 1890, als tweede nationale park in Amerika, na Yellowstone. Het park grenst aan de noordzijde aan het Kings Canyon National Park. In het park ligt Mount Whitney, na Mount McKinley in Alaska met 4417 meter de hoogste berg van Amerika. De meeste reizigers die dit park bezoeken gebruiken het nabijgelegen Visalia als overnachtingsplaats.
"Location fab, hotel very average"
Location is absolutely fantastic very close to The General Sherman trail and Moro Rock. National Park shuttle buses stop at the hotel if you don't want to use your own transport. The main building and registration are completely separate from the lodging rooms which are some distance away. We stayed in Silliman block on the ground floor which entailed walking from the car park and then carrying your cases downstairs to the first floor where we were staying, only one flight, no lift. There was an offer to get luggage delivered if we felt necessary and to ring when we got to the room? The standard mountain view room was actually quite large, somewhat dated and had a chair and sofa which was a bonus. A family could probably stay in the room which had a mountain view. Unusual AC unit accommodated part of the window. Room had a full size fridge, iron and ironing board although no safe nor microwave. We reserved dinner at 7pm the dining room which was half empty when we entered although we had to wait to be seated. Not sure why people were waiting for some time whilst there were covers available - perhaps staff/cooking constraints? The starter we ordered was ok and delivered promptly. My burger was fine although my wife's beef salad contained 3 x 1cm cubes of beef all of which were very difficult to cut. After complaining it was replaced. Dinner was not a pleasant experience. Even in the main building the wifi was weak, by way of comparison the other National Park lodge, Tenaya, we stayed at in Yosemite, the free wifi was actually terrific. They clearly know their market, being within a national park with little competition locally. Their dining and drinks are expensive and absolutely average at best. The only real reason for booking this accommodation is the proximity to the attractions, if you are not bothered by that you may be better off staying elsewhere with better facilities. If location is key then try renting a RV or campsite which need to be booked well in advance.
"The Only Place to Stay in Sequoia!"
While I would stay here again if visiting Sequoia, it's really because of the location. Not because of the rooms and certainly not for the food. Our room was very spacious, but the furniture was old and the paint was peeling all around the base boards. Signs everywhere suggested that a renovation was completed in May, but I could not see any evidence of remodeling. The food in the dining room was overpriced and simply not good (except for surprisingly good quesadillas, Caesar salad and a decent breakfast buffet), I realize the location may make it difficult to source good food. You get used to the lodge after a while, and while I am pointing out the areas for improvement, we enjoyed out visit to the park immensely and the location of the lodge is unbeatable.
"Typical Park Lodging"
Bed was a full size and very uncomfortable. No AC and room as on gravel path that everyone took. It was rather uncomfortable and can not imagine July and August! Be prepared to tote ALL of your things up a hill to get to your room. No elevators and everything must be taken out of car due to bears. They do offer you assistance, but will have to wait for a while.The park itself can be completed in a few hours depending on how much you want to hike. Also, Kings Canyon could be combined into one day. I would not recommend staying here or at the Kings Canyon John Mir Lodge! Best if you get an early start combine the two parks and stay in a hotel out of park.
"Vacation with Teenage Grandsons"
We stayed for 2 nights. The location is spectacular - convenient to everything within the Park. The rooms were being redecorated during our visit - new carpet, bathrooms, furniture. The room was average in quality and well-maintained. We asked for and received a rollaway bed. We purchased two "Bed and Breakfast" tickets and were surprised that we could not purchase 4. We paid for 2 breaksfasts each day by separate fee. We would stay again. The $280/night cost was worth it. Because of the location (and cost), the free internet service was extremely unreliable. I have traveled in the developing world and had much better service. I did not an amazing disconnect between the hotel staff, the staff at Lodgepole (2 miles away), and the National Park staff. None of them knew anything about the other's services. I understand the need avoid speaking for another concessionaire, but the real (or feigned) ignorance of each about the other was annoying. I would think the hotel reception staff would know A LOT about the other services and be able to direct guests to those services with a good understanding rather than "I don't know anything at all about that service."
"Great location, disappointing stay."
Wuksachi Lodge is getting 3 stars only because of its incredible location. The lodge is 10-15 minutes from the main attractions that the Sequioa National Park offers. This makes it a very convenient place to stay, especially since we were just visiting for 1.5 days. The grounds are well kept and it has a serene atmosphere. Other than that, the rest of our experience was not the best. When we went to our room, the keys didnâ€™t work. Thankfully, they sent someone with the keys. When we got inside the room, it was dirty. We have never stayed in a room as dirty as this one. There were crackers and crumbs all along the side of the bed. The bathroom floors were also very dirty. The tissue dispenser in the bathroom was empty and they did not leave enough towels. When we opened the sofa bed, the sheets were so dirty that none of us could sleep on it. All four us had to cramp in the bed. They advertise Wi-fi but it never really worked. Thankfully, we didnâ€™t need it for anything crucial but we could not even check the weather. The Peaks is the restaurant on site. It is really the only eating option you have if you donâ€™t want to leave the property. Dinner was limited but it was good. The breakfast buffet was awful. We got there at 7am, which was early, and they were already out of potatoes, bacon, sausage and coffee. They took forever to replenish the items and some were not even cooked all the way when they were replenished. If all you need is location, clearly this is a good option but other than that, it is a great disappointment.
