#1 of 4 Speciality lodging in Midpines
26 miles downstream from Yosemite Valley , we are located on a small valley under a grove of oaks in a former scouts camp. We are best known for our authentic old-style mountain resort character and social atmosphere. We have everyone from backpackers to young families who enjoy this place. The June Bug Cafe focuses on sustainable, local and fresh, in a daily changing menu with excellent vegan and vegetarian options as well as standard meats and seafood. The Cafe is considered to be one of the five best in the Yosemite Region. The Yosemite Health Spa is social and busy with herbal soaks, H2O2 Hot Tub and a hot rocks sauna. We have yoga on weekends. The private rooms are decorated well but all are different in style. Our family cabins and dorms are very popular. We align with the Hostelling International brand for our backpacker dorms. All accommodations are in stilted cabins. Tent Cabins are all well appointed and can be heated or regular for budget travellers.

It’s great to wake up in Yosemite Valley but not everyone can score one of the few spots within the national park itself. The closest hotels to Yosemite are in El Portal and they are fine as regular motels go but not very inspiring. For a more private option 25 minutes from El Portal (1 hour from Yosemite Valley), the Yosemite Bug is a good choice. We were driving Friday night from the Bay Area so the location was convenient as we could leave early from work at 3 pm and be at the Bug for dinner. Then drive to Yosemite early to beat the crowds and be back at the end of the day Saturday for the drive back home Sunday. The Bug is a hostel with dorm rooms but given we were a family, we book a cabin with bathrooms. Cost was reasonable and the cabin had a refrigerator, chairs and a small deck outside. Our cabin was not totally private (we had rooms on both sides of us) but it was isolated enough. The property is set back far enough from SR 140 where we did not hear any traffic during the night. It’s not your luxury resort with down bedding, pool cabanas and gas fire pits — but more functional wood cabins. but we found it very comfy. With a restaurant that churns out tasty food for dinner and breakfast. So as a staging location for a full one or two day visit of Yosemite, it is a good option.

I was treated very poorly by the land owner and told that the hiking spots aren't open to the public. I frequent the restaurant and the spa when it was open. I usually hike then go to the spa and/or restaurant, I'm a fequent patron of this establishment and i often vring friends. I don't stay in the rooms because they leave much to be desired. I am a local patron though who has given a lot of hype about this place on social media to my friends and family. Even if you pay to eat at the restaurant don't expect to be allowed to hike in the area. Expect the owner to sick his dog on you and tell you to leave because your tresspassing.

This is not your typical resort with swimming pools or pool service. But it is a great place to stay near Yosemite. We stayed in a family-style dorm room with bunk beds and a separate bath. But it was super clean and very comfortable. it was really hot when we were there and the AC was amazing!!! They stated there was no WIFI in the rooms only in the public areas of the resort, but we were able to get Wifi in our rooms. The staff was so friendly and helpful. There are more hotel-like rooms but we were looking for more of a camp-like experience and we were very happy. The restaurant was great!!! The food was amazing!!! It is situated on a hillside so just prepare for walking up and down a hill but there is parking close to the rooms so it was not difficult. I would highly recommend staying here if you are going to Yosemite it is about 40 min to the park entrance.

Made reservation on September 22 for an early October stay. It would’ve been our first time staying at what seems to be a wonderful place. I am sad to say that I contracted some kind of illness (test results pending) four days before our intended visit. Not knowing if I had COVID or not, I cancelled our reservation and am out the cost of a one night stay according to hotel policy. I hope to try again in the future.

Really enjoyed getting out with the Family during these times. The hotel like rooms all had separate entrances. Plenty of parking. Well run hotel. Extremely good Cafe. Great AC and small fridge in room. Only negative 32 minutes from Arch Entrance to Yosemite; but on other hand, not staying with any type of crowd, and the Merced River was 5 minutes away with fantastic swimming.
