Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

Nestled in the heart of Yosemite, Curry Village is praised for its excellent location, despite the steep prices not matching the basic amenities provided. While the rustic atmosphere and cleanliness of rooms receive nods of approval, travelers express dissatisfaction with the outdated accommodations and sporadic housekeeping. The charm of the amenities is often overshadowed by their limited nature and cleanliness concerns. Moreover, guests frequently encounter service issues, from tardy room availability to lackluster dining experiences, contributing to the sentiment that the Village doesn't offer great value for the cost.

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.

My wife and I stayed in Curry Village for four nights in early June, our 5th! trip to Yosemite in the past 15 years. We have also stayed at Yosemite Valley Lodge in past trips but feel that Curry is by far our favorite, mainly because its location is the best and the others staying there also tend to be hikers and outdoor enthusiasts with which we often meet and converse with during pizza dinners. So Curry has a "vibe" that we really enjoy.

We also know there are limitations when you choose to stay at Curry Village. But it would still be nice if they were improved at some point. Here are a few of those things:

1. The check-in lines this year were horrendously long, and rooms weren't available until long after check-in time.

2. The bathroom, showers, sinks, etc in many facilities are getting really outdated. Updating them at some point will be necessary.

3. The WiFi was still "out" after the storms from this past winter. Losing it was likely beyond anyone's control. But expediting a fix would have been really helpful since people rely on WiFi to get there weather and other important information.

4. The closing of the dining hall at Curry Village made things really difficult. In particular: (a) it made for incredibly long lines and wait times for the pizza deck, (b) it took away hundreds of seats for eating or just relaxing, (c) there was a complete lack of breakfast food options (in past stays we really liked the dining room breakfast options [like oatmeal or eggs, etc]), (d) it took away one of the two water refill stations in Curry Village so resulted in really long lines at the outside one by the store, (e) it took away the ice cream station that was such a great option in the evening after a long day of hiking.

Another guest told us that there were food trucks available in Curry Village in 2020 due to the pandemic. With the dining room being closed, having those food trucks this summer would would have been very nice (giving people options other than the pizza deck or Meadow Grill - which closed WAY too early for the many people arriving in the evening after their daytime hikes).

Our wedding anniversary was coming up. The only place we can think doing something outdoor. So we deiced to go to Yosemite. Since they only allow 50% reservation. We booked Curry Village and stay in canvas tent cabin. We got our tent and it was #747. When you first get your cabin make sure to open the door, let the heat out before getting inside. Wait about 10min or you will get heat stroke.. Thats what happen to me. The cabin where we stay is near the trail hike Vernal Fall and Nevada fall. You do not need to drive. There are no outlet in the cabin, if you wish to have outlet you need to book cabin with heater. Outside your cabin there a bear proof storage. It is big enough for your ice chest. (FYI must bring). During the time we where there, the dinning pavilion was remodel. The only food was Meadow Grill and two food trucks. Meadow Grill food was overprice and does not taste good at all. The food truck was good but overprice. There is a mini market or you get drive to the Village grocery store if you want more selection. There is a HOT food area where you can get ribs or chicken for your lunch or dinner. Things you must bring during your stays.

Ice chest
snacks for hiking
water bottles or water backpack
wear comfortable clothes (workout/yoga clothes)
hiking shoes (must)
sleeping bags
bugs repletent
sun screen
sun hat/cap
light jacket for night time
shoes for shower
caddy to hold your shampoo and etc...
woman (bring a summer dress with you) it is easier for take off and on when you head to shower.
sanitizer wipes
mask

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,

Been to Yosemite twice now and the first time I visited I opted to camp in a tent. This time around I thought I’d give curry village tents a try since I was going in the winter season and they had heated tents. I ended up staying for 1 night which cost me around $140 USD and I cancelled my other nights because it wasn’t a great experience. The service was good but the tent itself was dusty (there was a thick layer of dust everywhere except for the bed so I kept my shoes on the entire time), the tent didn’t have good ventilation and I found it really claustrophobic. I ended up camping at Camp4 for $6 a night and it was a lot better. If you’re out of options this would be an okay place to stay but I’d suggest upper pines or camp 4 if you have the right gear. It’s a better experience.

We booked last minute and were just happy to find a non-tent option in the park. Start w/ the good: obviously location is killer, the grounds are gorgeous, great food options on the property (including a Peet's coffee!), hot shower, heating, And the not so great: We expected rustic but still clean and "nice". In reality, the room looked like it hadn't been updated since maybe 1970 and I wished I'd brought my own cleaning supplies to give the room a once over before touching anything. Bedding was like sand paper and the blankets look VERY used. Charging $300/night it seems like they could invest some of those funds into updating the rooms: replace the gross, sticky carpet with vinyl flooring, get new bathroom counters, shower and decor. Book in advance and stay at the Yosemite Valley Lodge for just $30 more a night!

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.

in Curry Village, is Stoneman House, a wood building of 18 rooms with private baths, wrap around verandas & Adirondack chairs. My room 817 faced east. Parking is 130 steps away, so no car noise. It is 1 minute walk to the Front Desk (Registration), Guest Lounge, Meadow Grill, Bike Rental, gift & grocery store. I barely heard any neighbors. There is: ice bucket, ceiling fan, two full beds, dresser. mirror, artwork, bed table & lamp, 2 chairs, hair dryer, room heater. Front door also has a screen door. No table inside. Guests sit outside the room & eat sitting in the chairs.. Guests garner outdoor chairs not in use, so chairs come 'n go..There is NO: fridge, coffee maker, shower cap, TV, small toiletries, table, microwave. The ice machine, is between room 814 and 815. . There is: Very nice decor, alarm clock, 2 wood chairs, shampoo & soap dispensers in the shower on the wall (eco friendly) and the sink, six wood hangers, hair dryer, thick white towels, quilt spreads, carpet, ceiling fan, window shade, 1 luggage rack. It is a 1 minute walk to the Front Desk ( open 24 hrs), Guest Lounge slow internet. The Wood Cabins are quite a distance away from the Front Desk area, as is parking for them. To find the "Registration, Front Desk, from SouthSide Drive, turn right onto Curry Village Dr. When you see the sign, in my photo, make a hard right turn onto a driveway & parking area while registering. Front Desk ph.# is 209 372-8333. Meadow Grill & Pizza place were closed for the season.

The history of Yosemite Valley is incredible. The yurt village at Camp Curry is not. I am really mad that my husband chose these accommodations for us. We are hotel people. We used to be tent campers (Supai, Crested Butte, Makawao) but we outgrew the tents and got an RV. Where the RV can’t go, we hotel it. Oh well, I got a few more nights here lest we lose the $800 we spent. :/The tent cabin is dusty, your feet will end up black from walking barefoot. So little air gets in during the day, try to book anything but room 229 as it sits in the middle of the sun and is not shaded by any trees, ever.

Although the bathrooms are clean, the showers and toilets are separate facilities and small. There is one gender neutral ADA bathroom that has a toilet and shower but non ADA people like to use it so it’s always occupied. The shower curtains are moldy and yucky with mildew. I did not feel cleaner after bathing. The tent cabin comes with fitted sheet and flat sheet, pillow and sleeping bag quilt, 4 towels (bring your own), one chair and a utility shelf for storing items. The beds are comfortable which I appreciate. The dining options are limited at best. Pizza on site, a coffee shop and a little cafe. None of the food was worth a 2nd trip. The Basecamp Cafe was also open down at the Yosemite Lodge but lunch and dinner have the same menu. Again, not really worth the 2nd trip. Plan to spend $17-25 pp on each meal here.

I won’t stay in another tent cabin in Yosemite but you should be prepared:
• Flashlight for walking to restrooms
• Flip flops for shower
• Your own towels
• Portable fan
• Food containers (ants in the bear boxes) and ice chest
• Camping chairs
• Shower bag (one hook in shower area)
• Baby wipes for cleaning common surfaces and yo’ nasty feet before bed

We stayed in a room in Stonemans House for 2 nights
Location is stunning with amazing views
The room was great with 3 double beds, one was upstairs so be good for a family
Beds are quite small and you did need the extra blankets provided at night
Shower was clean and very powerful
Parking very near the room too
We had no issue with check in. Only took a couple of minutes
Only criticism is the food and lack of availability
The only food available for dinner was from the pizza deck where you had to queue for ages to get served and then wait 20 mins for your food. Lunch was pre packed with nothing fresh on offer from the restaurant inside. We used to go elsewhere for lunch
It’s not cheap but def worth staying in the park as you are so near to everything

There's room in the tent cabins - we had 3 beds for 3 people - for what you describe but there probably are occupancy limitations placed by the park service. You should contact the property to know for sure.

Yes, there are outlets in the dining area. I think it's called the Seven Tents Pavilion now. But be aware that there may be many folks wanting to charge their devices at the same time. You might want to charge in your car.

Hi The lodging website has a thorough description of Curry Village. For general questions about the route, what to do, what other visitors recommend, and more things like that, I strongly suggest that you use the Yosemite forum. The Top Questions on the right side of the Yosemite forum page is loaded with tips to help visitors. If you choose to post on the Yosemite forum, share information like ... what type of accommodation at Curry Village, hiking ability, interests of your travel group (or maybe it's just you), and things like that. Also keep an eye on current fire & smoke conditions before you head up.
