Early check-in hotels are a great way to make the most of your stay in Adelaide, especially if you have a busy schedule or want to relax after arriving early in the day after a long journey. An early hotel check-in refers to the possibility of arriving at your hotel and checking into your hotel room earlier than the standard check-in time, which is typically in the afternoon, often around 3pm to 4pm.

Some hotels in Adelaide may allow early check-ins at no extra cost if the room was empty the previous night, and so is ready to go and doesn’t require cleaning. However, if the room is still being cleaned and refreshed, you may need to wait or pay an additional fee for early access. It’s always a good idea to contact the hotel in advance to confirm that you do require an early check-in, and to enquire about their early check-in policy and any associated fees that may apply.

You can find a range of accommodation to suit your budget including hotels that offer early check-ins right here online through Savvy. Book your accommodation here today!
