We recently traveled to Sequoia for a family vacation and spent part of our time at Wuksachi Lodge. It was a great choice for traveling with a toddler: our room divided (pocket door) into 2 rooms, one with a fold-out couch and one with 2 queen beds, so we had a pretty soft landing after a long drive up from LA. I would highly recommend the Lodge for families who do not wish to camp, as the other options near Sequoia are 45 minutes (or more) from the Big Trees area (where the sequoias actually are within the park). The lodge building itself is a restaurant and check-in area, the rooms are in 3 other buildings (easy walking distance). It's nice because no one has to hear the noise of breakfast, but a drag on arrival when you have to drive and checkin and drive again to unpack. Also, you can't actually park very close to the rooms, so shuttling the gear (and cooler) into our room was a hassle. We later noticed maintenance trucks drive around the building to the back and that's what we did on checkout to avoid the long (stair-filled) carry. Also, the building we stayed in (Silliman) doesn't have an elevator.

The restaurant in the lodge is the only game in town. We were glad we came after camping, so we had plenty of lunch and breakfast snacks of our own to choose from. Also, it's important to make a reservation for dinner. We arrived at 445pm, and, although the dining room was ~30% full, were told that the first available dinner seating was at 845pm. We ate in the bar/hallway, which was fine, but not ideal.

However, after the hassle of getting ourselves and everything to our room and getting dinner our first night, we were very very happy with the accommodations. There is a shuttle from the lodge area to Big Trees, General Sherman Tree and Lodgepole, and we used it to access hiking in those areas (rather than drive). The lodge and the rooms are really lovely, very quiet, and very clean.

Room Tip: No elevator and buildings are 2 floors.

We stayed here three days while we used this to explore Kings & Sequoia National Park. The lodge is located inside the park, which is very convenient. The road into the Lodge is long, winding, and speeds are under 40 mph. The road is paved with two full lanes. This adds to the beauty of the lodge being so secluded. The lodge was very nice, the food at there on site restaurant was very good, and their staff went to great lengths to make sure that everyone was comfortable. The lodge had plenty of parking, their grounds were well kept. This lodge has a tremendous view of the mountains. We would definitely stay here and explore again.

Room Tip: All rooms have a beautiful view.

This was probably the best accommodation during our 10 days travel through different national parks in California and Utah. We arrived very late and although the restaurant was already closing we were still given a table and got very friendly service. The restaurant had a wonderful choice of food - most unexpected in the middle of this national park and both dinners and breakfasts were excellent. Our room was in the Stewart building and had no problems whatsoever.
We liked it so much at Wuksachi that we extended for another night (luckily there was a room available, since it was not a weekend).
I do agree with other reviews that the layout and access to the rooms can be a bit confusing, especially when you arrive in the dark.
At checkout we had a little mix-up with room rates and restaurant bills, but the manager was quick to find solutions and everything worked out well.
That wifi is not available in the rooms and only in the lobby/restaurant area seems to be standard in all lodges of national parks - even hotels in some cities. Considering the location of the lodges I think it is great to have wifi at all !

The room and location were excellent. However, while we were "guaranteed" check-in at 4pm, a room was not made available to us until 4:20. The Lodgepole hiking trail which starts at Wuksachi is a MUST--it was an easy downhill hike with absolutely stunning views. This short, 3 mile hike was the highlight of our stay.
