Early Check-In Hotels Kickstart Your Day

They say timing is everything. This is especially true when it comes to your hotel stay. No one wants to experience downtime waiting around for their check-in time. But that’s usually what happens with traditional 3:00 p.m. check-in times. 

HotelsByDay helps guests regain their flexibility and navigate their schedules by offering early morning, late-morning, and early afternoon check-in times. Whether you need a room before your 3 p.m. check-in, or just for a few hours early in the day, daytime hotel rooms save you money and time. 

Make the Most of Every Minute

Some people are okay with letting time slip through their fingers. You’re not one of them. You value your time so much, you want to get mundane tasks done preemptively so you can focus on the more important things. This is exactly the thought process behind early check-in hotel time bands. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re at a hotel for a business trip, for a vacation, a wedding, or just to get work done—every moment is valuable. HotelsByDay has designed its early check-in and late check-out process specifically to cater to those who want to proactively manage their day. 

Say Goodbye to Downtime 

What are you supposed to do when you arrive at your hotel early, mill around until the room is ready? While that might be fine if you have nothing better to do, we doubt that’s the case. Time is our most precious resource because there’s no way to make more of it. When it’s gone, it’s gone. 

Your time is far too valuable to be spent waiting for something that should already be done. You have things to do, and anything is better than waiting for the next moment to arrive. The second you step into a hotel, you should be met with a wave of relaxation. It shouldn’t feel anything like going to the DMV. Early check-in hotel rooms are the solution for those who are tired of being told to wait. 

Never Compromise on Your Hotel Stay, Book for the Day

Life is too short to make concessions. When you need to prepare for a business meeting or make progress on your project, you don’t want to be told to wait in the lobby. Thanks to the many early check-in and late check-out timebands offered through HotelsByDay, booking a hotel room for a few hours has never been easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

Generally, day rooms are 'run of the house' - meaning that whatever room is vacant will be assigned to you.  If you have a specific room request, we suggest you write on the 'message' section during your booking, or simply request it at check-in. 

Yes. The hotel is under contract to keep your room until one hour prior to your day room check-out time.

You have two options to book with HotelsByDay:

You can "pay at the hotel" which grants you free cancellation up to the same day.

You can also select a "non-refundable" booking. This means that you'll need to provide credit card details to book a day room. Once booked, the hotel will not allow us to change the date, cancel, or refund the stay.

For 'Pay at hotel' bookings there are no card details taken at the time of the booking non the website, and you will pay at the hotel upon check-in. 
However for 'non- refundable' bookings, a card is required and payment is processed at the time of the booking.

In both cases, you are asked to check-in at the hotel with a matching ID and Credit Card, matching the name on the reservation.

No - our bookings come manually and are entered into the hotel's reservation system ONLY on the day of your check-in. All you have to do is to show up with a copy of your reservation, as well as a valid ID & credit card that matches the name on your reservation.

Please note that regardless if you pre-paid for the room or not, the hotel will momentarily charge your credit card for incidentals. They will refund the hold within four business days post-stay.
