My ex and I used to fish- a lot. Every weekend, every vacation - fresh water fishing. We have stayed in tents, fishing cabins, hotels, motels and rented condos, we are used to whatever accommodations there are.
One year we wanted to fish a lake we had never tried, so we booked into the small locally owned motel that we had passed weekly for years en route to a different lake. I called and discussed with the owner our plans and asked about breakfast accommodations at their inhouse restaurant, cooking allowed in rooms, daily linen change, etc. We agreed on a weekly rate with linen changes every other day and a refrigerator was to be put in our room. We also had my FIL joining us for the week. Overjoyed with an upcoming week of fishing - we take off after work Friday and drive to the motel.
Now, we get up about 5 am and hit the water well before 7:00 usually returning around 10:30 for lunch and a nap and then we fish again in the early evening until around dark, so getting our sleep at night is important to us because we get up so early.
Apparently, this motel catered to a younger crowd from a nearby college town! Around 2:30 am they started arriving with loud music in their cars, door slamming (car & room), dragging bags up and down the sidewalk outside of our room, some doofus drug a stick down the wall of all the rooms across the door and window screen of each room - aggghhh! I was furious to be awakened two hours before I had to get up. Assuming this was just a one time thing we let it go and fished all day and into the evening. That night - same scenario again, I guess after the bars closed (2:00 am) the young people found their way to their rooms and again - loud music, racket outside our room, doors slamming, yelling, singing, etc. One bumbling fool banged on our door until my husband finally opened it and the drunken idiot realized he had the wrong room - did not apologize, just said oops and wandered off.
The next morning we hit the owner's office about 5:30 wanting to know if we could be moved or if they could be - whatever it took for us to get to sleep ALL night.
Spring break - the motel was full and they could not accommodate our request. At that point I asked, knowing that you would be full with spring break college students why didn't you either let me know this or at least give us an end room? Knowing that we would be wanting to sleep and get an early start on fishing as we discussed...her response, "we rely on these college kids to fill our place up spring break week, that's a healthy part of our income." Well, I understood that, did she understand that she could have had two more rooms of happy college kids as opposed to two rooms of unhappy fishermen? All she had to do was tell me, we could have booked elsewhere and stayed at this place during a non spring break week. She was not willing to ask them to quiet down at 2:30 either - they're just kids having fun she said.
We moved and have never stayed there again or recommended it to any of our fishing buddies or friends.
