Great location but no sleep!!!!
After staying in these tents for 2 nights a few years ago, we decided to book again as curry village is a great place to stay in Yosemite and the tents are fun. However we did not have a good experience unfortunately and ended up checking out a night early and got a full refund from the manager- despite paying for a heated tent, the heater started up before we got into bed, then did not come on again despite trying numerous times to make it work. We also had to get up and report during the early hours to the front desk as we were so cold we couldn't sleep.. temp was about 0 degrees! We had used all of the blankets they had given us, as well as our own blankets. As maintenance do not work during the hours nothing could be done. So we got hardly any sleep, but we still got up and managed to enjoy our last day in Yosemite. Thankfully we did get a refund and ended up staying in a motel that night closer to our next destination to get some proper sleep! If we return to Yosemite we will not book the tent cabins again.

Curry Cabin without bath
This cabin was the armpit of lodging in the Valley. The sheets were clean. That is all I can say that is positive. The cabin itself was dismal and lacked even minimal amenities. Even the lone mosquito looked depressed. The metal blinds were bent or broken. The cabin needed a through cleaning.
The lack of lighting made it very difficult to get to the cabin from the parking lot in the dark. Some ground lighting is badly needed. It would be easy to fall while hauling luggage into a very dark campground. Cabin numbers were too small and could be better displayed. The cost of this cabin cannot be justified. The rooms displayed on the website bear no resemblance to the cabin I stayed in.

We stayed two nights in a half dome cabin and enjoyed the experience immensely.
The accommodation was clean and comfortable and is a great way to experience Yosemite. The scenery certainly lives up to expectations, but the only slight disappointment was the lack of rain over the summer meant the waterfall was more a tricklefall and the mirror lake was more of a mirror pond. Bridalveil falls was still giving a good show though.

Always a great adventure
Half Dome Village (Curry Village) is my go-to option when it comes to lodging in Yosemite. Always great people, reasonable food, basic but comfortable amenities. It's so nice to be this close to nature and yet have an ability to take a hot shower after a long hiking day. A lot of trails around and a view on Half Dome make it even better. The tent cabins are always clean (as clean as they can be considering it's a tent) and a locker in each tent is an added bonus, so you don't have to drag all your valuables on a hike.
The only drawback for me is finding a park can be a nightmare

Curry Village finally got its name back. Love the cabins.
I just read that Curry Village has their name back, this makes me very happy! I never called it Half Dome Village. I have stayed here 3 times, in 2016, 2017 and last year 2018. I grew up with my family coming to Yosemite every year in the summer. We always camped in Lower Pines and went to Curry Village for the nightly Firefall that is sadly no longer. I always wanted to stay in the cabins growing up, I thought they were so neat. I am in love with Yosemite. Unfortunately, some of the cabins are falling apart due to the age and shouldn't be charged as much as they are and it makes me sad that they are as expensive as they are. I understand that some of the cost is because you were in the middle of the park, but please, clean them up, do something with the carpet on the floors as it is in really bad shape in the cabins I stayed in. But I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in the park as it is hard for me in a campground. Please take to heart the negative reviews about the rooms and do what is needed to make them beautiful again.
