Which kind of validation?
If it's outside the INSERT then a simple IF..ELSE will be fine.
If it's inside the INSERT then you should use a CASE statement.

Use ISNULL then. Even I guess if you don't do nothing it will work.
What happens if one of the previous variables are NULL?

Try this:
ISNULL(@Extendedto, 'NULL')

It will return 'NULL' to be concatenated to the main string.

If I am not mistaken, by using the latest syntax, you will insert the string NULL into the field and not a NULL  value.

I guess is what is pretended. The INSERT is a single string that has an UPDATE command. For auditing purposes I'll also guess.

this is the kind of syntax you need to really insert a NULL value (instead of a string) into your query:
DECLARE @Extendedto VARCHAR(10) = NULL -- 'test'
DECLARE @x VARCHAR(100) 
SET @x = 'insert into (f1,f2,f3) values(''v1'', ''v2'', ' + ISNULL('''' + @Extendedto + '''', 'null') + ')'
SELECT @x

I am not sure you see the difference. Vitor answer will insert a string value containing NULL.

What I am proposing is to insert a real database null value (not a string).

so later if you do :
select * from debug where Extendedto is null

Open in new window

the code from vitor won't work but mine will.

so it is really up to you do decide if you need a real null value or a string containing the characters NULL

@Eric, I already told you in my comment  #a41777931 that she needs the string NULL and not really the NULL value.

Eric, Its only for Audit and its not an actual insert in the table.It just stores the information as what the user is doing .

When you concatenate NULL to a value the result is always NULL so you'll need to use the same solution to all variables:
INSERT INTO DEBUG(SQL) VALUES ( 'UPDATE  table1
		(
(...)
	'''+ISNULL(@DurationofStay, 'NULL')+''' )
	'''+ISNULL(@Extendedto, 'NULL')+''' )
