That depends upon many facts. If you are planning group accommodation in Alleppey houseboat, then we definitely recommend night stay. But you have to keep in mind some points
* Don't expect that many comfortable bedrooms like in a hotel rooms
* Even though the houseboat prices are on higher side, there will not be that much facilities like a 3 star hotel room
* Evening and night time, you have to close your room to avoid mosquitoes or flies entering inside the room
* Houseboat staff will be sleeping inside the houseboat itself. So spending late night outside the room many not be possible
* During night time, houseboat will be anchored and it will not be moving
