February visit to camp curry
First of this is our first trip to Yosemite but not our first outdoor experience, we rented a cabin for 2 days and we’re excited to explore the park. After checking in and getting to the cabin we were not impressed, the cabins are dated which we somewhat expected but for the price we were definitely disappointed. When you first walk in the carpet is very old and smells, the blankets are old, the mattress was beyond used we sank in the middle and we are not heavy people, the shower curtain smelled like it needed to be bleach or replaced. Finding our cabin was a little tricky there was not a clear path you had to walked in between other cabins to get to it. The sheets were clean and the heater works. The dining options are fairly limited and if you like your food warm or hot do not eat at the park, breakfast was horrible I eat better at a continental breakfast than you do there for the price you would think they could at least have a better service something about ice cold bacon and eggs do not go well with your bread that you have to toast in a dirty toaster or dirty microwave to heat your food. The only positive the views and proximity to the park and the ice skating

For a national park, it's great
Curry Village is a great location in the valley. We never tired of the waterfall behind the cabins. We had a cabin with one double bed and private bath. Hard sided, to keep the bears out! Cute, cozy, and had a fan. You cannot keep any food in your vehicle overnight and need to keep the windows closed if you have food in the room. And there’s no fridge. There was ice for sale at the market in Curry Village. Book well in advance. I booked a year out — as soon as I could — and was able to book the cabin for a week. It’s pricey but well worth it to stay in the park and avoid long waits to enter the park and the real possibility that you won't find a parking space. (Our other option would have been staying outside the park and bringing the shuttle in.) Speaking of shuttles, just use the free shuttle while there.

Rustic lodging in beautiful setting
This is a basic spruced up cabin. It has a full size bed, dresser, two end tables, and chair to sit on. The bathroom has a small shower (better than group showers or no shower as the tents in this village). It’s small for two people but not bad. The bed and chair both are made out of wood resembling a tree giving it a rustic look. The rooms could use a makeover; perhaps Yosemite will remodel in future? It’s a small lodging facility with only 12 rooms. They have a wifi lounge and a big cafeteria which reminded me of a ski lodge restaurant. It was packed to the gills! (We have stayed at the “lodge”/Wawona Hotel before which is nicer). But it is pretty awesome to wake up in the morning and look up at the towering cliffs nearby!

Bed bugs in curry village cabins, definitely avoid
The rooms in the cabins were overpriced and dirty, with doors that didn't latch, etc. But the worst part was being itchy all week and waking up to find BED BUGS in the box spring. Management still hasn't reached out to address this issue, and I have a feeling they didn't adequately respond to the situation or warn people about the bed bug infestation. If you do stay in a cabin or elsewhere in curry village, be sure to check the box spring and all around, the bugs were hard to find.

Definitely a mixed bag. Great location but pretty rough conditions. Quilts on the beds were visibly dirty; probably hadn’t been washed the whole season. Dirty carpet. Bathroom door wouldn’t close. But the sheets seemed clean and the beds were comfortable. Over-priced for what you get.
