We're in Orlando many times per year and the resorts near Epcot are great for accessing Epcot and relatively easy access to spots like Downtown Disney, Wide World of Sports and the water parks. The short walk or boat ride to the back entrance of Epcot is the best.
Boardwalk is themed to give the feel of early 20th century east coast boardwalk towns. The decor and furniture give you that coastal, but not necessarily "beachey", feel. It has all the modern amenities (including Disney's on-property free wifi, which could be a bit faster) but stays true to the old boardwalk feel in the design and decor. There are some great porches where at the end of a long day you can kick back in a lounge chair and watch everyone go by on the boardwalk or watch the lake. You can even see the Epcot fireworks from some locations.
In terms of food, the Boardwalk Bakery was redone recently and has a great selection of pastries and breakfast food options, including frozen mocha drinks. There are also some decent restaurants at Boardwalk, like Big River and Flying Fish, or you can take a short walk around the lake to other spots at the Beach and Yacht Club resorts. Then, of course, there are awesome dining options in Epcot (some of the better in-park dining spots), but you need to be going to the park. As far as dining outside of the park goes, however, my opinion is that the best Disney restaurants (California Grill, 'Ohana, Narcoossee's) are at other resorts.
