we had a wedding and reception to attend, but the hotel wouldn't let us check in early (before the wedding) OR late (after the reception). they called in the middle of the reception dinner and said if we didn't go check in they would give our room to someone else. we told her that she never told us there was a deadline to check into our room, and if we're paying for it for the night we should be allowed to check in as late as we want. apparently there's no staff working at the hotel past 10PM.
Pros: free parking
Cons: hotel is overpriced, rude staff/owner (?)
