    If they are doing away with the desk are they replacing it with a small table and 2 chairs like the other moderates?

    That really sounds great... I hope it still says consistent with moderate pricing because this sounds like a deluxe for real... i LOVE the idea for hard wood floors and a larger TV

    No, there is no table and chairs. The long counter that will house the fridge and dresser has a spot to sit. Very similar to the one in the photo below but all one height

    This is so exciting! We enjoyed our stay in July 2015 and would love to stay in an updated room after the refurb!

    I'm guessing this isn't an "official" photo of the new rooms? Is there one out there? We're going to be there in January '17 and am requesting a Cabana room. I'm guessing those aren't going to be refurbed by then...?

    BTW Buzz, started following your CSR FB page, great stuff!

    I like the current rooms but the new rooms are very nice! Much better than the pricey hotel im staying in right now in Atlantic City.

    Looking forward to seeing the new rooms Feb. 10-15, 2017! In the pictures, the rooms look brighter and more 'Disney' than what I remember from our last stay there in 2010.

    Wow the new rooms look a lot different. I like the changes to the bathroom the most. I'm not sure if I'm sold on the bedroom side just yet. I think the grey counter top could have been a bit more bold. I also miss the old green accents that added a nice touch of color to the rooms. I'm debating about Coronado or POFQ for a trip next year. Now this makes me want to check out CSR again.

    Any idea if the beds are open underneath for storage purposes? I think I saw the new Pop rooms allowed for that.

    Thanks for the updates and photos Buzz. We are booked for PrincessHalf Weekend. Feb 23-28. I cancelled all room preferences and put in "above all- brand new renovated room."

    It seems this will be ranchos first and then cabanas? Correct? Do you have a timetable - do you think any cabanas will be completed by our dates? @Buzz2001 Thank you in advance. I visited your Website too, it was very informative and well done, thanks!

    I'm hoping to stay at this resort for the first time in March 2018 after our cruise. I've stayed at Riverside 4 times now and I'm ready to try something new. It would be great if the renovations were complete by then :)

    OK, so there is still a desk – as would be expected at a convention resort.

    The cabinet in the bathroom may make life easier for mousekeeping - I know I would have less stuff all over the sink area.

    And I spy Caballeros!

    It's just room rehabs, from what I have read. I've not seen anything indicating pool or other amenities will be affected. The main pool just got the fence around it. I seriously doubt that anything else would change. Besides, you could get lucky and get an upgrade to a Deluxe resort, as some guests have found.

    That would be wonderful but I just don't have that much good luck! But long as we can use everything should be fine , can't wait looks such beautiful hotel.
