We stayed here in november and it wasn't what we expected for the price you pay. Our accommodation was a cabin which was very run down. The carpeted floors were full of sap from the trees outside, ( they would be best to do away with carpet and have boards or lino on floors) there was dust everywhere, gaps in the front door which were so large they let the cold night air in. The power point where the heater plugged in kept tripping, however it was fixed promptly by maintenance. The shower was very mouldy but the water pressure and heat was good. Towels were refreshed every day, sheets were clean however the quilt covers on the beds were filthy with dirt. The metal blinds were bent and overall the cabin was just 'sad'. Its such a shame as the cabins have so much potential. There were some gorgeous prints on the walls of bear cubs would of loved to of purchased some copies in the gift shop but unfortunately they didn't have any. The store on sight does have a good supply of snacks and meals at a price but was convenient. Curry food hall gets very busy. The food is very hit and miss. Pizzas are good, we never had a bad one, the same with breakfast it was great too. Dinner was a little ordinary one night i ordered a pasta dish for my daughter and it was so salty it was unedible. The village itself is located in a prime spot so convenient to beautiful scenery. We would love to return to Yosemite one day but will probably give Curry Village a miss, unless they can spend some decent money on it. Its really sad its been let go,

Chilling Experience in the Heated Tent
We (a family of 3 - with a teenager) stayed 2 nights at the heated tent of Curry Village. After reading the reviews, we were pretty well-prepared for this winter adventure. The tent was heated but the heat only warmed up the bed closest to it. We still needed to wear down jackets, hats, and socks in the tent. At night, we were wrapped up in sleeping bags covered with 2 blankets, wearing beanies and wool socks.The beds are comfortable though. But the insulation is not sufficient. Wooden floor is pretty dirty and worn out. I would stay in a wooden cabin such as Stoneman cabin rather than the tent.

Loved Yosemite, hated Curry Village
As others have commented, the bathrooms are filthy, no toilet paper, mould, other people's hair everywhere. Definitely wear shoes in the shower!
We were cold in the tent, even though it was summer, so take your own sleeping bag.
Our rental car had a flat battery the day we went to leave. The workers at reception couldn't have cared less. Thank goodness some other travellers offered to jump start our car and we were on our way out of Curry Village! The only saving grace of Curry Village is the location in the beautiful valley. For the price they charge per night, they really need ti pick up their act on the accommodation and facilities provided.

Easiest & most comfortable camping!
My stay at Curry Village in the heated tents was even better than expected! The tents were surprisingly comfortable, warm and clean. Waking up with a gorgeous view of Half Dome was the highlight of our trip. The restrooms were very clean and being able to take a warm shower after a long day of hiking was much appreciated. We visited in Jan, even with the snow and remodeling of Curry Village in progress we found plenty to do. The food near the campground was delicious and it was nice to kick back in the guest center by the fire. Can't wait to plan another visit.

Perfect for what we were looking for
We stayed in Curry Village for (2) nights after Christmas. It was exactly what we expected. we brought our own extra comfy/warm linens and that is necessary. The heater worked great until the power went out at 8pm on the 2nd night. However, maintenance was able to get all the tents in the 400's back on within probably 30-45 minutes which was great. All staff was super helpful from the moment we pulled in until that sad day we had to pack up and leave. Will definitely be staying here again.
