    I would much rather stay longer, but do keep in mind that you’ll be spending more money on activities the longer you’re on vacation. I think it’s a matter of personal preference – I prefer to be out of the room doing stuff so a nice hotel is a waste.

    I voted average! Are you having a big wedding? If you can afford to take that much time off work, I think you’ll want/need that time to recuperate from the wedding. We did 10 days, and it was amazing…

    I need a bit more information.

    are you just talking about a hotel room? You mention resort. Generally a nicer resort has more amenities. is that the case here? Where is this hotel? A nice hotel that isn’t on the beach is less appealing than a lesser hotel ON the beach.

    Where are you going and what will you be doing while there?

    If we’re talking somewhere that takes a long time to get to, like Europe or Asia, seeing the historical sites, LOTS to do – I’d go with 2 weeks and an average hotel.

    If we’re talking a sort of all-inclusive or a resort where you just stay on property, a week is plenty in my opinion. After 6 days, even though we LOVED it, we were plenty relaxed and ready to head home (Jamaican All Inclusive).

    The other consideration is vacation time from work – if you only take a 1 week vacation, does that leave you more time to take other vacations the rest of the year?

    I voted for amazing hotel and 1 week, because you wouldn’t be leaving the resort much.

    It depends!  Probably two weeks!

    We had the same ordeal. We opted for a nice hotel but a shorter stay (though 8 days isn’t necessarily all that “short” in my opinion). We were happy with the choice, but it’s obviously up to you!

    It depends on how “average” the other hotel is.

    Do you have pics or links of them both? That would help me decide!

    Totally depends! Will you be spending a lot of time in your room? Where are you going? What do you class as ‘average?’

    Pics would be great!!

    If you’re spending all or most of the time on hotel property then a nicer hotel for a week is the way to go.  If you’re spending most of your time sightseeing or doing excursions off the hotel property then two weeks in a moderate hotel would be my choice.

    I would go with the shorter time and nicer hotel. I actually do spend time at a hotel when I go somewhere, especially around the pool so a nice hotel and great travel experience is important to me.

    If you’re mainly staying in the resort area I voted for 1 week with a nicer hotel.  I think I’d be bored if I spent 2 weeks at one resort without doing much else.  As others mentioned…if I was going somewhere with a lot of sightseeing (Europe, Asia) I would do the average hotel for 2 weeks.  If I’m barely leaving the resort I’d do one week with a nicer hotel.
