Good vibe, good energy
Let me just begin by saying that we stayed in the stoneman cottage at curry village. It was worth extra money, for it was right next to the front desk, and in front of staircase falls, and had a shower and toilet ensuite. We found the room comfortable though tired and worn. Cleanliness was acceptable really. Housekeeping was decent. Room came with shower gel and shampoo, an abundance of towels, a ceiling fan, a table fan, an iron, and best of all a usb charging point.
The ladies at the front desk were efficient and friendly.
We ate at the mountain room and base camp eatery at yose valley lodge, degnans kitchen, and of course at curry village. We found the pizzas and tacos at curry village pretty decent. (base camp eatery was terrible canteen food!!) Bar 1989 at curry had excellent hamburger sliders, so good that we had seconds.
Would definitely stay here again. The vibe here is good, with more families and youth communities. Shuttle buses stop right at the carpark area. I've noticed that yose valley lodge gets big organised tour groups in contrast.

Nice Yosemite getaway, centurally located
We stayed at a family tent, it's centrally located at Yosemite Vally, close to Mist Trail, and have necessary amenities (shared bathroom, shower, close to restaurants). The tent itself is rustic and me and my family enjoyed our stay and the park.

Great location, pretty good room
Stayed one night in a hotel room in Stoneman at Curry Village. Our room had two double beds and a private bath. The lighting was very dim, there was no refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker. In our particular room, the heater would not turn off, but fortunately one of the two windows we were able to get open, and we slept with that open all night, and were very comfortable. The decor was cozy, and the beds were pretty good; certainly not the worst we’ve had during our four week vacation. Check in was easy, but you could see by the way it was set up for long, long lines of people checking in that we got lucky with a quick check in. I suspect all the people checking in at the tents also check in at this building.
The good part about staying in Curry Village is that it is near some of the few hiking trails that are open right now, like Mirror Lake and Vernal Falls. The shuttle runs through here frequently, and for us was really the only way to get around. We found it very difficult to find most places we were looking for until the shuttles helped orient us. The thing I did not like about the curry Village location was this shear number of people that could be staying there. We were there mid week in May and felt it was pretty crowded, but I’m sure in the summer or on the weekends when all those tent cabins are full, it’s an absolute circus.
So although our room was nice, and we enjoyed our stay here, I probably would not elect to stay in curry village again myself.

Stoneman Cottage, Worth a Revisit
It's been twenty five years since I stayed in the Stoneman Cottage in Curry Village. What a pleasant surprise. The last time I stayed there you had not control over the room temperature and I was left roasting in November. The rooms have been nicely updated and they added blackout curtains and new beds. The down side is that the bathroom is so small that you have to be a ballet dancer to close the door and use the toilet. Very cramped. It was as if you were trying to do everything in a phone booth. All in all, I liked it so much that I am returning in October,

Filthy tents covered in black mould.
Don't bother - the tents were filthy and covered in mould. Given a thin blanket to sleep under whilst there's snow on the ground outside... we had to bring our own bedding in. The whole place looks very run down and neglected. Could do with some serious TLC.
