There is a video on Buzz's CSR site where someone video taped walking from the far regions of Ranchos to El Centro. The farthest walk possible at CSR and it took 7 mins. You can clearly see in the video the person walks at a normal pace. I guarantee you it is as long or longer walk from the far reaches of most Deluxe resorts. It might seem shorter because you are in a hallway, but it isn't. Tough to do anything at WDW without walking for a few minutes. I don't know why people exagerate the walking distances at CSR so much.
I wasn't exaggerating what the walk felt like to us. Like I said in my original response, we've stayed in a lot of different resorts and it's the only one where it felt like the walking was just too much. If it was a deluxe where some of the walking was enclosed maybe that would have made a difference. I just remember walking back from the Dig site in the August heat and feeling like we had never been in the pool and schvitzing by the time we got back to the room. Just not worth it to me. The OP asked for opinions about why CSR sometimes gets iffy reviews. For lots of people none of this is a big deal, and clearly isn't for you, but for others it might be. To each his own.
