We stayed at this hotel in October 2013 in Building 1 facing Disneyland. During our stay it looked like some of the other buildings were being remodeled. It seemed evident that building 1 had not been updated in some time. We are planning another trip to Anaheim in 2015 - has Building 1 been updated (or will it be soon)?
Dear Kristin B,
We are so happy to hear you are looking into staying with us during your upcoming trip to the Anaheim Resort! We do currently have a few room categories in building one that have been recently updated and refreshed like our Queen Jr. Bunk Deluxe bedrooms, Kid's Suites and the King Suite. Also, we have tentative plans to renovate our Premium Disney facing rooms; this is definitely on our list! If you are looking for our most recently renovated room categories, we recommend booking the Standard Double bedrooms in buildings 3 – 6. We hope this information has been helpful to you, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions!

Well, I stayed recently at this HOJO. The first time in July 2014 and the second on august 2014. The first time we stayed in building one (the one where the little store is) . I thought this building was good, the rooms looked good. I love the fact that you have a microwave, and a sink outside the bathroom, this us quite usefull with kids. My second stay was very different. We stayed in building two. The furniture is the same aaas building one, but the building seems older, the carpet hasent been changed and tge aircons are very old. Hence my room had an odd smell and the air on woke up my baby every night at least once a night.
I will go back to this hotel but I will make sure to stay in building one, I would not stay in any other building. This is what I experienced, maybe someone had a different experience.
I stayed there last week and it appeared that buildings 3-6 had been remodeled, we were in building 2 and it had not been updated and building 1 looked the same so I would say that has not been remodeled either. Hope this helps!
