The Brilliant Bug! A review of Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort
I loved this place. I was backpacking around the US in winter and was desperate to go to Yosemite. None of the campsites were open due to the time of year and the hotels inside the park were way out of my budget - this is where the Bug comes in. It is not for people who want luxury lodges and a 3 minute walk into the Park - that is what the Yosemite hotels are for. It is for travellers on a budget who still want to be able to experience all that Yosemite has to offer.
Anyway, the dorms were great, really clean, fairly spacious and with lovely hot showers in the en-suite. The communal area was good - loved the log fire, the pet cat and dog, the board games and cosy sofas - made the place feel really warm and welcoming. And of course the food was fantastic - a real treat after weeks of supernoodles! Would go back without any hesitation.
