is it worth it to update bathroom for color and functionality with ceramic tile and new tub or have tub and shower surround put in. Does anyone have any idea on what bathroom renovation might cost.

In my opinion, ceramic tile and a nice tub will last longer, and probably take the abuse of your tenants.  So, in my opinion, just go with cheaper ceramic tile and a solid tub, and it will be worth the extra money now, in the long run.  It all depends on your area, but a reasonable, bathroom renovation with rental quality upgrades could probably go from $1500 to $5k.
