Hotels vs Special Stopovers Advice/Feedback?

I've only ever gone on hotel tours in Europe but I'm looking into special stopover tours for summer 2017 because they offer longer tours and stops that aren't offered up with hotel tours. But, the more I read the more I get concerned about location, comfort and cleanliness/upkeep of the special stopover and cabin locations. Anyone who's been on a special stopover and can compare I would really appreciate any information.
