We stayed pre kids at the Bug back in 2004. Back then it was the middle of winter and we had fond memories of the roaring log fire and hearty food. Fast forward 10 years, 2 kids later, and staying in the middle of summer…..there was no roaring log fire but the food was still hearty and the place was exactly as we remembered. We stayed in a cabin with private bath, it was nothing fancy but perfectly adequate. And for our screen addicted kids, quite the novelty "what do you mean there's no TV??!!!!". The only real downside was the poor wi-fi, we tried to connect a few times in their cafe and each page would take about 5 minutes to load (if at all….frustrating because we were trying to book accomm for the next night).
Back to the pluses, it was about a 40 minute drive to Yosemite Valley and we had no problems with traffic on a Thursday and Friday in summer (we read horror stories of crowds and queues). The bug is not 5 star (but it doesn't claim to be does it: "rustic"), it does has a hostel feel to it, but if you're after somewhere close to Yosemite Valley that has character and charm and is very reasonably priced, the bug is great.
