    We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!

    I'm not sure about the laundry facilities. as for a shared bathroom we had a jack and Jill bath but there was no one in the adjoining room. I'm guessing you can request your own bathroom but it'll cost extra
