I used booking.com/index.html?aid=1158815
loved this website because it allows you to book without the commitment of paying (but they do capture your credit card details as a guarantee for no show) and sometimes they even throw in free cancellation if you cancel about a week before. And its always about $1 to $10 cheaper than other sites.

It's up to the hotel, and sometimes up to the desk clerk. If there was not full occupancy the night before, they wouldl have some rooms already made up and available. Hotels can be as nice or as bitchy as they choose to be.

I've had better success checking in early at overseas hotel than compared to U.S. hotels. And by early I mean a few hours early (noon before 2 pm check in).

It all depends on availability and other factors of course.

It depends on the hotel, some have a very strict policy. They may let you check in early but they will charge you for an extra fee or a full extra day.

As I recall, Motel 6 is pretty strict. You sit on your suitcases in the lobby until noon. no matter what.

I don’t expect them to but usually, when I’ve asked, they have agreed. I have also asked them to store my luggage in a safe room if I can’t check in early and they will do that for the few hours until I can check in.
