          Kaitlyn P
          Is it alright to check in super late if we have paid for the room the day before? (We fly in at 11:55pm the 12th and probably won't get in to hotel till 1:00Am the 13th) we've paid for the day of the 12th just wanted to know if there was a certain check in time or if it's flexible. Also if there are car rental companies near by or if doing so at the airport would be better. Thanks
