How Late Is Too Late To Check Into A Hotel?

Imagine yourself arriving at your destination at 1 am, exhausted and already dreaming about laying on a comfortable bed, only to find out that the hotel’s front desk is closed and you can’t check in.

Can You Check Into A Hotel Late?

Given that the hotel’s reception runs 24/7 or until your arrival time and you have told them about your arrival, you should not face any issues.

However, some hotels, especially budget ones, may have their front desk closed by certain hours.

If you come after that without informing anyone, there may not be anyone waiting for you. And they may charge a late check-in fee.

What Time Is Check-in For Hotels?

Most hotels’ standard check-in times start at around 2 pm to 4 pm.
