This attempt at a plush lodge in Sequoia misses the mark by a wide margin. Wifi is so poor as to be almost non existent--yet the John Muir lodge has quite good wifi. Rooms are a hike! I am not sure why they put the rooms up a steep hill and in a building with zero amenities. No common area, no wifi. The restaurant is so understaffed as to be comical. At dinner if you want a drink at the bar you have to contend with a very long wait because the bar tender is also a waiter. So if you want to eat at a reasonable time, book early and be very patient (and if you have kids, bring snacks). John Muir lodge is overall a much nicer lodging experience with common areas on every floor, a nice lobby, and reasonable wifi.

Hi Amy, it's true, due to our remote location, our wifi is provided by satellite and is extremely limited, slow and only available in the main lodge. Wuksachi is a great place to be outside, but not good for being online! When the facility was first built, the accommodations were intentionally set back from the main lodge and parking in order to preserve the views and trees as best as possible. We are always happy to assist guests to their rooms with their luggage. As for the restaurant, we agree that we could improve with our service times and are working on amending this. Thank-you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate it!
