My husband and I stayed in Yosemite Lodge at the Falls in August 2010. We stayed in the Elderberry building and found it to be "nice"...not the Ritz but clean and very convenient to the Falls. We crossed the street and the Falls were at our "back door". There were NO BED BUGS or other insects in the room!! I did take my own tub cleaner, even though we took showers and didn't sit in the tub, I just didn't want to take any chances of the tub not being clean when we stood in it. (previous visits to other National Parks gave me this idea) It did help. The tub was not as clean as I would have liked. WE found the Food Court to have good food and the Mountain Room was GREAT! Wonderful desserts! There was a heat wave the first days we were there but the room had a ceiling fan and also a free standing fan. Screens were tight so no bugs or unwanted rodents could get in. WE did take a small coffee pot for our room..good idea! Also a small fan for the bath room...really helped in the heat wave. We loved the park and Lodge is a great location. Front desk people were very helpful and we even got to check in a couple of hours early ... very lucky because check in is not until 5pm! I had requested the Elderberry, top floor and I called the day before we checked in to see if we got our request and we did, so they do try to accommodate you if possible.
