X2. We mix it up in our vacations between resorts, locations and staying quarters. I stay in enough hotels for work and find that even in the priciest locations there are flaws. It's not a matter of dollars and cents but a quality of time and experience my kids are having with the family unit. We go places, see things and make memories that only camping can offer in most cases. You can't have a campfire outside your second, third or fourth floor hotel room and that is usually one of the most enjoyable things we do as a family.
What I also find is while towing may be a little more taxing on me, having a clean bathroom and area to sit and relax for an hour on the road makes a road trip a heck of lot more enjoyable for everyone. Also there's no unpacking or re-packing to do, just close the slides and shut the door.
