I was disappointed with noise problem one of the windows on the external wall did not have glass in it just a steel grid for security. The motel is on a major road and the traffic noise was loud all night resulting in very little sleep

The window you are talking about is a sliding glass window. All you have to do is slide it shut. All windows on the property open and close and we leave them open when we clean to air the rooms. It is up to the guest to close the window, if they desire.
