We left it late to find accommodation so called to see what possibilities the bug had. The lady on the phone was terrific and found a perfect solution. The bug caters for all sorts and budgets. Our private room was excellent, clean and cool. The bug has many things going for it, not least its proximity to the National Park... More

About 30 mins drive from Yosemite, it offers a reasonably priced alternative to staying inside Yosemite (or if in-park lodging is full). Feels more like a youth hostel rather than a hotel. It’s a strange place, giving the feeling of being back to the hippy or flower-power generation. The rooms are located in cabins spread out over the grounds. Their... More

Lovely rustic lodging set among the trees (good shade!). The private tents were clean and comfortable with electricity (basic lighting and fan). And the shared facilities were clean and quite modern. The cafe makes delicious meals, and provides box lunches. And the staff were helpful in planning the visit to Yosemite. Wish I could have spent more time here.

The studio barn is away from the main cabin area. The upper level has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. there is a main area which has a kitchen/dining/lounge. All was very clean and tidy. There is also an outside seating area. It is not a very long drive to get to Yosemite national park.

We found the place easy enough. We checked in and found our way to our tent which way basis with 4 beds and a socket/light. A fan was provided. We were pleasantly surprised by the toilet and washrooms which were modern and well maintained. We ate at the restaurant which was nice enough.

Such a nice hostel! Good facilities, great restaurant (which is very reasonably priced for food and beer), clean room and a lovely setting. It took about an hour to drive into the Yosemite National Park.There was free parking and wifi. There were laundry facilities too. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Would highly recommend!

WONDERFUL venue. The bug offers many different options for lodging; We ended up going with the tent cabin. Exactly what we expected (very simplistic, clean, and no other ammendities, aside from mininal electricity.) Communal bathrooms were very clean. The cafe blew us away. Phenomenal food!! It also has options to appease vegetarians/vegans. If we're ever in the area again, we... More

This hotel is very unique as it gives the feel of camping inside the forest but actually has a very luxurious decor inside the room. We took the cabin with own bath and double queen beds and it was nicer than most chain hotels. The restaurant is great for breakfast lunch and dinner and we bought the brown bag lunches... More

We stayed in one of the 5 bed family rooms and had a great time! Room was excellent value, small but clean and ideal for our stay. The toilet and shower facilities at the hostel were all clean and close by to the room. The restaurant at the hostel offers great, healthy food at a reasonable price. There are also... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucked away on its own bend along the stream, perched under a grove of black oaks, the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort has a magical feel. Located only 26 miles away from Yosemite Valley along California's scenic, open all year Highway 140. The Bug offers a relaxed and social atmosphere where families, backpackers and international travelers all find welcome and a variety of affordable accomodations and amenities an old time mountain resort would have. At the Bug we feature a variety of lodgings to suit any budget. From well appointed private rooms in cabins, vacation rentals, to tent cabins and Hostelling International licensed hostel dorms. Our guests find our facilities to be anything but a corporate hotel or motel setting. In fact, we are on a sloped hillside so be prepared to walk far up and down to your accommodations and parking. Our guests are welcome at the June Bug Cafe offering fresh comfort and international foods. The Cafe features an daily crafted dinner menu, highlighting our garden, local or organic ingredients. There are always vegan, vegetarian options and holiday feast menus. Breakfast & lunch are solid choices for your active day. Or, enjoy the fully equipped guest kitchen. Both have free wi-fi and are well stocked with board games, darts, ping pong, books and lively conversation with diverse guests and locals. The Yosemite Health Spa is located below the cafe with its own garden deck overlooking the valley below. There, our guests will find a yoga studio, massage therapy, essential oil baths, hot rocks sauna and a huge H2O2 UV spring fed stainless steel hot tub. With asian decor, world music and complimentary tea, the spa offers a calm yet social environment. Groups, weddings and courses will find varied accomodations and $50+ inclusive packages here at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort. Both the Bodie Room and the fireside redwood amphitheater are the perfect places to host gatherings and meetings ... more   less
