Our stay at the Laval University Residence was a disappointment. The noise both outside the residence building and in the hallway was enough to keep me from getting a good sleep during our four night stay. From July 24 to 27 every night there was yelling outside the building and loud talking and yelling inside the wing hallway, and in adjacent rooms. The room doors also closed with loud enough bangs to keep me from sleeping, and when I did manage to nod off they woke me with a start. I am a light sleeper and even with a white noise fan running I could only sleep from around 02:00 when it got quieter to about 06:00 when the noise started up again as patrons left rooms “slamming” doors on their way out. There is no AC in these rooms and as it was hot out we left the window open but we had to close them at around 02:00 when the yelling would start, then is got uncomfortably muggy in the room.
We found dust/dirt on the floor of our room upon arrival, and the one breakfast we had in the cafeteria included hash browns that were not edible as they were cold and soggy. The coffee was ok…
We paid around $75 Canadian for the room I would say it was not worth it.
On the positive side the linen was clean, it is fairly close to the city, it was cheaper than a hotel, and the staff was friendly and apologetic when told about the noise. Parking was free, there was free internet, and did I mention the coffee?
We stayed at a residence in Montreal once years ago and had a pleasant experience hence the reason to try it again. I did not realize this university still had some courses going on and that the place was going to be quite busy.
It’s not the universities fault of course if there clientele are not considerate of others but it is what it is. If you’re a light sleeper, want peace and quiet, a floor free of dirt, and would like to eat in the cafeteria close by maybe don’t stay here.
