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... More

This is a great alternative to staying inside Yosemite National Park. It is about a 40 minute drive to the park entrance but that wasn't a problem for us. The room we had was simple, but had it's own bathroom and had all we needed for our short stay. We ate at the cafe every night of our stay and... More

We booked through Extranomical Tours and were totally unprepared for the distance and amount of difficult hiking required to reach this location. The local bus ride from Yosemite is over an hour, which wasn't too bad. However, the local bus dropped us and all our luggage off a half mile from the Bug Hostel. That half mile is mostly uphill...

Very helpful and friendly staff, clean and comfortable. I stayed in a dorm. Beds would benefit from individual lights so the over bight strip light wasn't the only option...my eyes! Easy drive in to Yosemite.

My wife and I stayed at the Bug at the end of August and were very pleasantly surprised, particularly given the cheap price when compared to accommodation within the park. We only had one night there and limited time within Yosemite national Park but the busses between the park and the Bug are fairly frequent during the day and took... More

The Yosemite Bug is rustic, they deliver what they promise. Private room with shared bathroom was a good size, clean and comfortable but, you guessed it, rustic! The restaurant offers a great menu, changing daily, at very reasonable prices. If you are prepared to make the 40-45min drive into the park, a lovely drive, then this will fit the bill.... More

1st night we were in a private dorm style room with shared bath. The dorm was a concrete block with dirty carpeting, stain on bed spread and teen furnitures made of metal. Shared bath / toilets were renovated but both washers (which were located by the shared sinks) were broken with someone's wash inside. Windows had old sheer curtains hanging... More

We had a private cabin at the back of the complex. To get to our cabin one had to travel down a steep, dusty and dangerous path that stank of raw sewage. The room was painted a challenging bright green and had only an old and outdated air conditioner. Although it was a private room, it had a shared bathroom... More

I was onto Yosemite for a one night stand as a first timer and booked a night at Bug with little expectations. After traveling all day and enjoying the majestic YNP, arriving at Bug in 45 min from the Valley was very nice. The restaurant food quality was superb and the private room was perfect: cozy bed, clean room and... More

This place was great for us. We had a private room which was very nice and had air con. We shared a bathroom with one other room, it was clean. The wifi was quite slow. The kitchen facility is very good - we cooked our own dinners to save money. Free parking. It's about an hour drive into Yosemite national... 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
