Wuksachi Lodge & Village
Nice but some issues
The lodge in beautiful. The only problem I can see is getting to your room. It is set back away from the lodge and you have to carry your luggage around a lot. I almst feel due to a lack of lighting on the steps. I told this to the office.
I'd rather be camping!
We just spent two nights here and we felt the hotel was over-priced and has some worst service. First of all, the rooms are far away from the lobby. We have seen many people dragged their luggeages to the lobby to check in but to find out they have to drag theor luggages back to their cars and drive to the rooms. Secondly, the food are very expensive, though taste not too bad. You felt like being robbed just because you have to eat there. Thirdly, the wireless internet is only available in the lobby but not the rooms! I can't believe they are so cheap to install some access points with the high prices they charge us. Last but not least, they don't even change towels for you. After we came back from our hiking, we were surprised to find out the room service hung our dirty towels by the door and bath tub! This is the first hotel I stayed that do not provide fresh and clean towels to customers!!! With the price they charged and the service they proivided, I'd rather be camping!
Unique Quality: You may see deers by the hotel.

Our family stayed here for 3 nights in July 2005. The Lodge consists of the Village Center (lobby, restaurant, and small gift shop), and the rooms in three sperate two story buildings (no elevators) just up the hill. We stayed in a junior suite, which was clean and comfortable, and decorated in woodsy colors. Our bathroom was painted mossy green! We had a small refirigerator. Since they try to be as natural as possible, there is no air conditioning, just a ceiling fan. It can get quite hot during the day, especially if you're on the "sunny " side of the building. (Our room faced the forest so it stayed a bit cooler.) Like the hotel, the restaurant was nice but very expensive for what you get. It's cheaper to go to the Lodgepole visitors center and get their deli or "fast" food, or buy food in the little grocery store. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. We recommend the lodge for those wanting a more comfortable place to stay within the park.
There were pros and cons to Wuksachi, though in some cases the cons ruled out the pros. First of all, the complex was very basically sprawl. This is a national park, not some resort. Also, the lodge buildings were too far from the parking lot, and the rooms had TVs, and cost about $175 a night. Neither the price nor the amenities are needed in a national park- Cedar Grove Lodge is much more of what I expect in a national park. Also, the dining room at the lodge was reservations-only. The lodge also appeals too much to tourists who don't understand the point of national parks very well (during my visit, I saw people petting and feeding deer. Disgusting). On the brighter side, there were good views of peaks on the Siliman Crest.
Unique Quality: While I have said a lot of negative things about this lodge, to tell the truth, it's not that bad. The views are good, and you can ramble around the lodge grounds and see deer (which sadly were eating from trash) and other wildlife.
