Boardwalk Hotel vs Boardwalk Villa

Looking at Aug 2024 stay. Comparing Resort View (hotel side) with DVC studio. Price is similar, hotel side $20/night more.

I can’t find too much different as both room types appear to be recently renovated.

Anyone have any strong opinions?

I will admit that I am a BWV owner, so I may be bias. I prefer the villas. I had stayed in the BW inn side before I bought but my room did not have a balcony. I love balconies! I also love the kitchenette, with a microwave and toaster in the studio villa. I also love the pull down single bed for flexibility in the room. Oh! Plus the villas have a community hall and a short walk to HS!
