Hotel late check-out options

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are researching flights between LAX and Kauai. For the return flight, a few of them don’t leave Kauai until late night (around 9 or 10 pm). Hotel check-out times are generally at noon, so it seems we have a few options on how to kill time between hotel check-out and the return flight time. If we would want to go to the beach and shower afterwards, we’d still need a room. I called the hotel (we’re looking at staying at the Sheraton in Poipu) and they said we could either:

1) Use a complementary room, but it’s only available on a first come, first serve basis
2) Pay a small extra fee for a late check-out (but they can only guarantee room availability the night before our request)
3) Pay for an extra night (only true way to guarantee ahead of time that we’ll have a room)

Option #2 seems reasonable, but I’m afraid of that room guarantee being only the night before. If there’s nothing available, then what? We’ll have to find something else to do that last day instead of enjoying one last beach day?

Has anyone had experience with late check-out requests (in Hawaii or at this hotel)? Do you think there might not be a problem with availability these days since hotel capacity is low?

In the past when Aloha Airlines was still operating, we flew home to Orange County and flights normally left Hawaii earlier in the day, so we’ve never had to deal with late check-outs. I appreciate any advice.
