shower for guest room

Trying to decide whether to put a tiled in shower or pre-made shower insert in the guest bath. Where to look to compare? Is it necessary to have a tub in the guest bath?

I personally like the look of a tiled shower over an insert. If you are worried about cleaning and grout, we used 12x24 tiles in our guest room shower.
I don't think a tub is necessary.

Don't think guests would or should mind a pre-fab shower unit as they are only staying 'temporary' at your house usually for free.

I voted for a tiled shower, but I think a seat/bench along with a niche to hold shampoo, bath gel, etc. must be made a part of the design.

It depends on the number of baths and the geographic area. Here where I live, I've had friends that had problems with resale, because they chose to take out the guest tub and create a tiled shower, thinking that they had a large garden tub in the master bath. Younger families expected to have a smaller tub for their children.

good point by smartin1 - when I was thinking guest bath I was thinking of it as a third bath - master (doesn't matter if there is a tub or not), "kids" bathroom (with tub), and guest - just to put my comment in context.
