Hey guys! OP here. My grandpa has sinus problems so his snoring is way more severe than most people's is. He and my grandmother both were talking in their sleep on top of it. I waited it out and tried my headphones for almost 3 hours before i decided to move. The hotel room only has a bathroom and bedroom, no couch, so it was the only place I could go. The tub may seem a little over the top, but my grandparents are older and have bladder control problems. They need to go to the bathroom multiple

Earplugs don't block 100% of the noise, what they're best at is blocking low-volume noises or white/brown noise. Harsh, loud noises like obnoxious snoring can get right through, though not at the original volume, but it can still annoy the crap out of OP. I use a few different kinds of earplugs all the time because I have Misophonia & 4S. My advice would be to play some calming music or a noise generator with headphones and try to sleep like that for one night. I know how hard it can be to r

Maybe I'm just desensitized because I grew up with a snoring parent, but isn't sleeping in the bath tub kind of a dramatic solution?

If it's the furthest spot in the hotel room away from the snoring people, then no, it's not over the top. You can only understand this plight after not being able to sleep for a period of time (like a couple days) because the people you're staying with are noise polluting the environment and you start to essentially lose your mind and will try ANYTHING to just get some SLEEP.

If you have headphones, download a white noise app. I had to sleep in a hotel room with my snoring parents a while ago and that worked perfectly.

#6, Why were you downvoted for this? This is something I do all the time because I have a disorder that causes me to get insane reactions from normal every day noises people make, so I don't go anywhere without my music /noise generator app and headphones and high quality earplugs. If you can sleep with music playing (earbuds or etc), it's your best bet to block the most noise.

Hope it works. If you had to deal with this more frequently I would suggest noise cancelling headphones for sleeping, but because it's only a couple nights, there's not much you can do. My suggestion above was headphones and music or a noise generating app, but if that hasn't worked, then that snoring must be extremely obnoxious. I'm sorry you have to deal with this for a few days. Depending on the price of the hotel, would your grandparents consider getting you your own room..? I know it's a li

Thank you! I did try it, but I have a hard time falling asleep when I'm leaning on an earphone. We're here because they had a fire in their house and a repair crew is working to fix the damage. I came up with them because they're stressed out so I think I'll just tough it out if it gives them some peace of mind.

Ah, I see. That's horrible about the fire, I'm so sorry! Well, hopefully when it's all over you'll be able to get a good night's rest at home. Good luck with everything :)

Maybe invest in some earplugs. Even try a few different kinds to find out which work best for you. If that doesn't work either, depending if where you are is considered safe, try sleeping on the floor in front of their room or on a couch in the hallway. Otherwise, maybe you can rest for a couple of hours during the day when your grandparents are out and about? Good luck on getting some sleep.

This happend to me when i was staying with my parents i was so mad! Luckily my dad had an extra pair of earplugs, sucks when u dont have them though.

Sorry about the situation op but good for you for finding a solution to the bro let without bothering your grandparents even though I could imagine it was not comfortable for you hopefully you still managed a few hours of shut eye
