My family and I stayed for one night (we were supposed to stay for two), a Wednesday, because of the poorly insulated walls and the fact that there were drunk pothead girls who kept laughing like maniacs on our floor hallway (16th floor, highest level in the building). We were also able to hear some kind of sorority gathering with at least 20 people clapping from time to time. Also, the toilet in our room was broken and kept flushing on its own. I basically did not get any sleep that night. I called the front desk twice to complain. The first time they said that they would send someone to quiet the girls down. They kept screaming/laughing crazily so I had to call again an hour later. They pick up and say "oh, you are room XXXX right? we will send a person now". I got pretty angry and said that they shouldn't let regular visitors stay at the "hotel" if this kind of noise were to happen. An hour later they sent a person and the girls were quiet from then on.
Being from the U.S. and having graduated from college two years ago, I guess drinking and being obnoxiously loud is not so uncommon for many colleges. However, (from my knowledge), most U.S. colleges also don't let just anyone (including people traveling in family units and those with small children or elderly) stay where other students are dorming. So if you are traveling with college-age friends, this can be a "cheap" alternative (although my father was able to get a better deal at a better hotel so go figure). But maybe you would not get the quality sleep and experience that you would get paying a little extra at a real hotel.
