Thank you to Sherman Housekeeper
We stayed on property for one night. Had one of the superior rooms (with a separate television area) in the Sherman Lodge. The room was huge, comfortable and clean. Guestrooms are in buildings set apart from the main lodge building. All of the staff from the front desk, to housekeeping to the dining room were helpful and pleasant to talk to. So secluded in Sequoia, and tired from our travels, we ate dinner in the restaurant and had the breakfast buffet the next morning. Nice airy dining room. Both meals were satisfactory. Had a cocktail at the bar and wine with dinner. Unfortunately, tired from travels, quick turn around AND elevation, I made a classic mistake leaving a valuable ring on a ledge in the bathroom upon departure. I didn't realize the ring was not on my finger till we arrived at our Yosemite hotel that evening. Distressed, I immediately called Wuksachi Lodge to ask them to check lost and found. I called the following day to hear the housekeeper had, indeed, located my ring AND turned it in. Manager took my information to ship the ring to me. Management followed up with the tracking number on the package. Ring has arrived in Savannah and I am forever grateful to the honest housekeeper who turned in a very unique family heirloom. MANY THANKS to the Sherman Lodge housekeeper and management for saving my day!

on its own
Isolated for sure with little in the way of activities nearby, apart from the great wild forest land, the Lodge is a fine home base. Rooms are in buildings about 150 yards from the Lodge and the Lodge is for dining or hanging out. Food is good, menu varied. Rooms are standard, well maintained. It is a great place for a quiet retreat.

Great location and views
Our family group recently stayed here in 4 different rooms. All of the rooms were clean and neat. The beds were comfortable in 3 of them with one of them being very soft in the middle. The carpets and furniture not as aged as one would expect in this old of a Lodge. There is a very weak wifi signal as advertised. We did discover you can use the phones in the rooms to call home for no charge. There was no Micro Waves in any of the rooms so be prepared. One room near by was using a hot plate to cook which could be dangerous. The walls are a little thin so you may hear kids running down the hallway or in one case someone having a loud conversation in the hallway at 6AM. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful checking us in and out to our rooms.

Amazing location - would highly recommend!
If you are planning a 2 day trip to Sequoia National parks, then I highly recommend staying in the park itself. And the Wuksachi Lodge offers the most central location. The rooms are comfortable and clean, nothing fancy though. The staff is friendly. The Main building as a game room, a bar and dine-in restaurant. We really enjoyed the food here.
As we stayed overnight in the lodge, we could drive to the General Sherman Tree viewing area early in the morning (5 minute drive) and find a spot in the parking lot - something which is impossible to do if you are staying outside the park.

Fantastic place, awsome views, wonderful lodge and restaurant
We stayed there in the winter. It wasn't too crowded which was nice. Rooms were large with great amenities. I'd recommend upgrading to a premium room with a view of the mountains, it's worth it. A pet friendly hotel! Although dogs are not allowed on the National Park trails.
