Easiest transport, monorail resort vs bus resorts

I've just returned from the World, my first trip.

Stayed at Poly because of it's convenience as a monorail resort and proximity to TTC.

The monorail was great when it was working, but 3 of the 8 days it was delayed, not working at all, or not working to EPCOT.

My BIL/SIL said when they stayed at the CBR 10 years ago, they had a great experience with transportation.

So, Disney Veterans:

Is it better to stay at a resort that relies 100% on busses because they will always be running and are reliable?
Is it better to stay at a monorail resort, because for the 65% of the time they are working, they are super convenient?

I did plan way ahead both days, started at 7 for my BBB at 8 in the MK. Still didn't make MK until 8:45AM, luckily they took us anyway (we couldn't even take the boat at 7 because it was 2 hours before park opening). The third day it didn't matter, because we were meandering to EP, but we had to wait for 3 busses until we could get on, so we didn't miss anything, but it was a long wait.

I'm just hoping for some discussion to help us pick a resort the next time around.
