Yep, kids running on hardwood floors at 10:00 PM on the floor above us, drunkfest post wedding or post reunion parties in adjoining rooms or in the hallway areas close to our room.

We called the front desk and asked them if they would/could check it out, it was taken care of quickly and an apology made when we checked out.

I had one bad night out of three or four nights stay and the manager/desk-clerk comped a night's room fee from the total bill which was nice. I've stayed at this lodge both before and after the "night from hell" and never had a problem. It appeared to have been a wedding party that got out of hand on that noisy night when I had to call the police because I couldn't get a call to the front desk or the manager/owner. The police stopped the noise on their second visit to the room when I called them on the second time.

I haven't had any issues that I can think of, even in Las Vegas where you might expect some noise.

What I DON'T understand, though, are people who post bad reviews for a hotel such as Four Queens in downtown Vegas, saying they couldn't sleep from the noise. Ya think? The property is located literally next to a main outdoor stage that has music until 1 AM.
My posts as moderator will be in red.

Earplugs. Don't leave home without them. Ever.

Ear plugs - fans - TV if necessary. I agree with a PP about the big gap under the hall door, and people talking in the hallway. What's up with that? (the gap, I mean. I understand why people talk.)

I almost always stay in Hampton Inn and they do have the guarantee.

I have never understood why people think it's OK to have parties and make a lot of noise in a place where the primary purpose is to sleep! I've had my share of noisy neighbors and I always come prepared for the worst. I set the fan to on if I can and and I bring heavy duty ear plugs. I've never had a situation where those two things didn't help and I had to call the front desk, thankfully.

To be totaly blunt, I have my curfew, and it is midnight. Keep it down. Bring some ear plugs next time if you are so sensitive.

If this was your apartment rental back home, there would not be much you can do during normal hours. Would you call the cops back home?

All this call the front desk for a noisy flight crew or rowdy kids, you have to use some judgement.
Or even the couple having sex in the next room, they paid too.

Unless is a boombox or pounding or making noise at my door, i try to let it go.

How is management supposed to take care of the problem if you don't let them know until you check out? By then, it is too late for them to do anything about the noisy guests.

Sometimes, yes. I turn the air handler fan on (rather than auto) to mask most of the noise. If it goes on for long or gets out of hand I will call the front desk, but that's pretty rare. I've even had the front desk called on me once or twice when I was hosting a noisy after-conference party.

But I've only ever asked to be moved once. I swear I thought the man next door was murdering his wife/girlfriend/companion/roommate. She was yelling and screaming as if in distress (no, not in ecstasy) for quite a while. I finally called the front desk to alert them to the situation. Security paid my neighbor a visit but after they left the screaming resumed. Then I began to worry that the guy would figure out who called for security and come after me and my wife. So I got dressed and visited the front desk in person. They were very understanding and immediately gave me a new room on a different floor. I went back up, my wife and I packed our things, and we left in a big hurry. I didn't tell her our new room or even our new floor until we were way far away from the old room, so that no one could overhear it. The whole things was very troubling.

Once you start to travel regularly after awhile you realize that among other things earplugs should always be packed (along with an eye mask, antiseptic wipes & Immodium).
