Consider apartment and house rentals
If you are interested in a single-destination vacation, or are staying in one place and using it as a base for exploring the local area, renting an apartment or a house can be a good idea. However, it is not always possible to ensure quality beforehand, and you may be responsible for supplying your own bed linens, towels, etc.

With my experience of hotels its not always possible to ensure quality across a franchise - staff, food, when was it last refurbished. The choice to self cater is one based on freedom and the additional space that you get.
I have found that you can do you best to ensure quality by plentiful research beforehand. There are a number of good resources homeaway.com, holidaylettings.co.uk and pureholidayhomes.com are my favorites
