I think the sentence means that I don't want the situation that he is in the room. Am I right? I want to know the meaning of the sentence.

    Your understanding of the meaning is correct. You do not want him (to be) in the room. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Sep 25 '16 at 15:29

This is the equivalent of "I want this person to not be inside the room."

Both indicate that your preference is for him to leave.
