Check in time is 3:00pm, and check out is 12:00pm. Anyone arriving earlier than 3:00pm will be checked in as soon as room(s) become available. An early departure fee of (1) one night's room and tax will apply if a guest checks out prior to the confirmed checkout date. Upon check in, guests will be asked to verify their departure date.
