So we left San Fran, for the first part of our proper road trip and aimed for Yosemite national park. Raywood got her first experience of USA driving which she excelled at. (ER: automatic with cruise control, all I had to do was point it the right way) It was about a 4 hour drive and we arrived in good time on Sunday at about 3pm. We are staying in …

The plan for today was to say goodbye to Wawona, fill up with fuel, buy some lunch and drive through the valley bottom to Tioga Pass so that we were in either Lee Vining or Mammoth Lakes tonight. So how come we are currently sitting in the guest lounge at Curry Village in Yosemite Valley? Well it started with the fact that the shop in Wawona didn't …

After the unexpected delay on our flight we ended up landing into San Francisco airport at 1am. Which when you added the hour that it took to collect our luggage and clear customs came to 2am. Then we had to collect the hire car, which I am happy to say had a 24 hour depot meaning we didn't have to wait until morning to pick up the car and lose any …

After a week in the LA and San Diego we headed east inland to Yosemite! It was a never ending journey about 3 hours all together but it was most defiantly worth the wait.

Pictures do not do justice to Yosemite. As soon as we arrived in Yosemite there were signs warning about Wild Bears. We arrived in the car park, we had already been told …

    This was a nostalgia trip as we had stayed in a cabin 10 years and 8 years ago. Unfortunately the cute cabins set at the back of Curry Village under the Sequoias no longer exist and have been replaced by larger but characterless wooden rooms which are regimented and laid out for the convenience of the staff not the visitors.

    The guest lounge was warm and had a good atmosphere but the wi-fi is slow.

    The village is massive and great for the outdoor adventure seeker, however $130 for a shitty canvas bungalow with shared shower rooms was a little unreasonable.

    Curry village is a settlement of erected tents. It is big, and a little over bearing, but even with those numbers it all runs well. Lines are long but they all move quickly. There is choice available so something for everybody.

    But at $140 per night, i think a little pricey.

    Cheapest place to stay in the park, in summer the tents were warm but if you're an explorer you're out most of the day anyway. Food and drink locally available and close to many bus stops to get to other hotels etc. Clean tidy, not secure as they are only soft lined but can't imagine there is a lot of crime in Yosemite

    The Mystery Spot

    from

    We rented a Curry Village cabin for $88 for a night in December 2003.

    The floor was so far out of level that the bathroom and closet doors would fly open and slam into the wall every time they were opened, and needed to be slammed shut. Walking around took some conscious effort.

    The bathroom was cramped, and the towels were threadbare. The office staff was barely cordial. We've also stayed at the Yosemite Lodge, but found it to be an economy accommodation at a premium price. We plan to stay outside the park in El Portal our next visit.

    Late October 2003 Visit

    from

    I really enjoyed my stay at Yosemite. I would agree with the opinion that the the lodging at Curry Village seems expensive, however, when you compare the cost of other accomodations in Yosemite (with the exception of old-fashioned camping), Curry Village is the most reasonable. I stayed in a cabin with 2 beds and a shower. The room was a bit musty - it's a cabin - it's supposed to be! The room was neat and tidy and the bathroom was clean. The 2 bed cabin was adequately sized for 2 people but may be somewhat cramped for 4 adults. The canvas tents across the grounds did seem small and squeezed very closely together.

    Curry Village:Bring your earplugs!

    from

    Stayed 10/13-18/03. Curry Canvas heated tent. Clean, warm,had a blast.

    Only complaint is tiny babies brought by un-thinking parents- awake and screaming at 11PM. SHould have a minimum age limit. Not fair to other campers.

    I Truly Enjoyed Curry Village Cabin

    from

    I just returned from Yosemite 11/3. The Curry Viollage Cabin was small but had all of the essentials (2 beds, bathroom w/ shower), and it was clean abd cozy. The heat worked well on the cold nights. The cabin was under the trees and when it snowed it was absolutely beautiful. The only negative was the closet smelled very musty so we didn't use it. For $88 these cabins are a very good value.

    Cramped and Expensive for what you get

    from

    The location of Curry Village within Yosemite is magnificent, but the accomodations were pretty primitive for the $63 dollars a night they charge. With 750 tent cabins crammed together in a small space it feels like a suburban tract project moved to Yosemite; -- the cabins are so close that every cough from other cabins is completely audible as you try to get to sleep. The cabins themselves are extremely cramped, with a double bed and a single bed so tightly packed in together that it is pretty much impossible to stand up except at the entrance. We also found the front desk staff rude and unhelpful. We had planned to stay for four days, but had enough after our second night and headed home. If the price was $40 a night the level of service and accomodations might have been acceptable, but as it was I agreed with the former poster who suggested that the private firm that runs the village might do a lot more to spruce it up given the money they are making.

    Canvas cabins in Curry Village

    from

    Recently stayed at Curry Village, weekend of 3rd Oct 2003. Couldn't find a way of booking on line so took the risk of turning up (as I had done the previous two years and got a cabin in April). On this occasion however only canvas tents left. I was extremely disappointed. The tent was cold and the bed extremely uncomfortable (covered in a ripped thick plastic sheet). This was the worst of my three stays, especially as the next tent contained a baby who unfortunately cried all night and the conversations on the other side were very clear (be warned!).The cost was $66 per night. It's probably one of the cheapest ways to stay but I got the feeling they could do with spending money on the camp to upgrade the accomodation.

    Magic

    from

    We stayed in Curry village in a cabin without bathroom. Basic, clean and what a location! It was just great fun, ok so its just one step up from a tent and I had to get up and get my torch at 4 in the morning to go pee - but it was worth it!House keeping come around every day and leave fresh towels and tidy up the cabin. The staff are lovely and its handy in curry village for food as you have a choice of the buffet or the pizza place to eat. Plus you can sit out and drink beer under the stars and watch the cheeky racoons look for food!The only down side was the showers, the staff do come and clean them but with all the traffic they get they are not spotless. But I would still go back for more again and again, next time I might see if I can get a cabin with bathroom just so I have the extra luxury ...!!

    Spartan accomodations but great location

    from

    We stayed at a Curry Cabin for three nights over Labor Day weekend. We paid approximately $90 night for a cabin with private bath and double beds. If you want to stay in Yosemite Village but can't afford the Ahwahnee and don't want to camp, this is a good option.... if you make reservations far in advance, because the cabins (especially the ones with private bath) go quickly. Of course the cabins are old, and have no modern amenities like A/C, phone, TV, hairdryers, etc. ... but then again, you're here to commune with nature, not electronics! The scenery is breathtaking. The food and shops are good. The maid service was good, except the blankets on our beds didn't look like they'd been washed in awhile! All in all, okay if you're open to a "rustic" experience and not expecting what you would in a regular hotel room.

    Curry Village-Adequate and affordable

    from

    On a recent trip to Yosemite Valley we stayed in the Stoneman House at Curry Village. The room was reasonably priced at approximately $115.00 per night. The room, however, is just a BASIC room. There is very little room for anything except sleeping or reading in bed. The bathroom does not afford much privacy, so make sure whoever you stay with is very close. There were some stains on my child's sheets, but I didn't notice them until the morning. The upstairs loft had food debris between the rail and the carpeting. Someone is getting good money to run this concession in the National Park and they are not providing quality service. The next step up is the Ahwahnee Hotel, which begins at $388 plus per night for a regular room. I didn't see the inside, but Yosemite Lodge might just have a better view than Curry. Curry Village has a relatively inexpensive cafeteria style buffet- all you can eat, a coffee/ice cream bar anda fireside lounge. You can also eat at the Pizza Patio and there is a small bar adjacent to the dining room. Curry Village might be a relatively good value, but it needs some sprucing up. But, for staying IN Yosemite Valley, it provides convenient and affordable lodging alternatives. Hint: There are only three specialty cabins and they reserve as far as a year ahead. I wouldn't go to Yosemite Valley without a confirmed reservation. Scenery is extraordinatory, but Curry Village isn't.
