That's all bass-ackwards.

Instead of refunding the quiet people, why don't they start kicking the noisy people out? Or charging them more, or whatever...?

It's not like they can avoid the big sign saying "This is a quiet hotel, noise makers will be charged double!!"

halmot: Jeez, it's not just partiers and kids. I'm always amazed at how Grandma and Grandpa Bumblefark will happily blather on, at full volume, while trying to grasp the concept that their 2nd floor room can't be found on the 3rd floor. Even when I was a kid, I knew to keep it down in hotel corridors, regardless of the time of day/night.


This one bothers me more than kids in some ways. With kids there's an element of 'well, they don't have any concept of what it's like to just want to get a good nights sleep before that early morning train' so it makes me tolerate it a little easier. But once someone's got to middle age, they really should understand the impact of their actions.

Once had a group of 5 or more people gather in the very close vicinity of my hotel room door just after midnight for some sort of impromptu meeting. I could tell by the voices that at least 2 of them were old enough to know better. I don't know how many there were because fortunately it only went on for about 10 minutes and I was too tired to get up and see what was going on.

If you didn't care you wouldn't remark. So, tell me why it is you feign not caring.

nipner: Maud Dib: Went camping in the Davis Mountains of West Texas a few years back at the state park. Quiet time is 10 PM. I had my 3 yr. old daughter with us and had hiked up a nearby peak with her in a baby backpack, so I was frikkin' tired.
The camp next to us was filed with Jesus freaks, and they started singing loudly along with a boom box playing Amy Grant CDs.
After about 10 minutes of that bullshiat, I stuck my head out of the tent flap and cursed a blue streak at them. They kept playing....10 seconds later, the boom box had a catastrophic failure.(not due to me).
It was glorious. I said a silent prayer of thanks and hit the hay.


I hate running in to killjoys like you in a campground.. wtf.. who goes to a campground and expects everyone to put away their marshmallows and stamp out the fire at 10pm... ? I'm sure the "rowdy" crowd was probably just talking and having a good time with the radio on low. But you're probably the ass that blows everything out of proportion. If you don't like it in a public campground, then get a back country permit, and hike in a little ways to another campsite.
I especially hate when we offer the complainer a chance to join us for a beer, but they crawl back in their tent to sulk. go fark yourself!


Sure. A fellow drives probably 300 miles, at least, out into the middle of nowhere, the pristine Davis Mountains, best star viewing in the Southern US, so beautifully quiet it makes your heart ache, just for the privilege of listening to braying jackasses like yourself. And you think so highly of yourself that you see offering more of your blighted company and shiatty beer as a positive? DIA(camp)F.

I stayed a hotel once in Myrtle Beach and had to deal with rowdy guests, well...young teens specifically. It was a group of parents who brought their young teens along, girls in one room, boys in another. They were pulling pranks on each other all night long. I figured by midnight, it would stop, it didn't. So I go to one of the parents rooms and ask them to hush up their kids as it is 12:30am at this point and I would really like some sleep...the mother more or less looks at me like "what am I supposed to do?" and says, oh "kids are kids, they will tire out soon enough"

I told her to go fark herself, went down to the lobby and told the MOD that one of three things was going to happen - either they shut these kids up, they move me to a different room far away from the kids or I am leaving and going to another hotel.

They went up with security and told the kids to go to bed and scolded the parents. About 45 minutes later, the noise starts back up, and even louder this time around.

I call down to the MOD and tell her that there is a bunch of noise again and that the kids are running up and down the hallway. The hotel was booked, so they could not move us to another room, but they had another, nicer hotel about a mile away that they booked us at for the rest of our stay at the same price we were paying for the lesser expensive hotel. As the wife and I were packing up our stuff (at ~2am), one of the boys managed to break a window. Farking white trash assholes...

Thirty decibels or less, you have ten seconds or less to comply.


EDs have a tendency to stomp around a lot, so I'd go with a few of these at strategic locations:

/I've heard the hotel serves up a great slice of cake, if you can make it to the lobby.

Joce678: "Instead of refunding the quiet people, why don't they start kicking the noisy people out?"

Because once you get known as the place where nice old people go to be quiet, you can kiss your profit margin goodbye.
Same reason they dragged their feet on the no-smoking rooms.

If this was a widespread problem where many consumers were demanding a solution, they'd create "quiet" floors and charge a premium for them.
But it's not. Which is why they guarantee a good night's sleep instead. That costs them almost nothing because loud disturbances aren't really *a problem* for most guests on most nights.

That's the root of the problem; self-absorbed, lack of situation awareness and, more or less, just a dick in general.

wildcardjack: When I was 16 my school did a trip to Paris, and we were getting hammered on French wine. I vomited from the Eiffel tower and it landed on an artists canvas on Monmartre. I'm told he sold it as a Jackson Pollock.


I've vomited on one of those fairground rides that whirls you around high up in the air.

No, I didn't see what it hit ... but ever since then I don't loiter anywhere near the base of one (just in case I'm on it).
