As Disney Vacation Club members we have stayed in quite a few DVC resorts. The Boardwalk Resort's location is what really sells it. It is in walking distance to both EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. There is even a free boat that you could take if you didn't feel like walking. The atmosphere surrounding the resort is clean and fun with plenty to do and some great choices for food.
However, once you enter the hallways to go to the Villas, this is where you start to see the age of the resort. The carpeting is in need of changing. I did, however see engineering repainting the hallways so hopefully carpets are next on the list.
The room we were in was also in need of some updating. The end table had some scratches on it, there was also something hard "under" the rug in the center of the room. Other than that, there was just some evidence of some sloppy housekeeping. personally, when a room is cleaned there should not be any reason for a hair to be on the sink or counter. The floor looked like it has only been vacuumed in the center. the area where the rug meets the wall was grey with dust in some spots. Totally unnecessary and inexcusable.
So, as many have stated, the view and location are great, the resort just needs to step it up a bit with basic cleaning and housekeeping duties.
