The hybrid battery finally gave up on us after 16 years and 300,000 kilometers. The car body is in good condition, the engine burns a little oil but nothing else wrong with the car. Should we spend the money and replace the battery or call it a day and move on? What do you think of a used battery?

What do you think of a used battery?
It is a gamble. As is having yours "rebuilt" unless all new parts are used.

Which is more important to you.....convenience or money ?

If you keep that vehicle, it likely will be more and more INconvenient as it ages more.
But you probably can nurse a few more years out of it with a "used" battery at a fairly low cost.

Personally I would be shopping for a newer model.

Thank you for your advice. I was mostly thinking the same. Maybe time to let the prius go to prius heaven! :-(
