One of the things I hate about HGVC is the 10am checkout and I usually call to ask for an extension and rarely get it. I was just in Maui and they gave me a 10:30am checkout so I took that and had all my bags packed but relaxed in my room until about 11:30am when I needed to leave for the airport. Luckily the housekeepers were slow that day and I had no issues leaving later.

I am usually always able to get a 11 pm late check at every resort except Ocean Oak. Ocean Oak gives no late checkouts to any members, so I no longer bother asking. What is also interesting is that Ocean Oak has a very hard time getting rooms ready for check-in by 4 pm. We had two rooms ready earlier this month when we arrived at 6 pm but the last room wasn't ready until 7 pm. This has happened to us a couple of times.

I would be pissed with a 7pm checkin and then a 10am checkout
They did get a comment on the survey. Ocean Oak is a great resort which we love. This is the only negative concerning the resort and we go there twice/year since they opened.

Isn't there an owner's lounge or suite where you can reside after checking out of your room and before departing for the airport?

I think 10am is kind of the standard checkout across the timeshare industry. The only exception I am aware of is Disney Vacation Club with an 11am checkout.

10AM check out is needed to get rooms turned over for the next guest. Unlike hotels that probably have unsold rooms timeshares are usually booked for peak season for almost everyday.

I’ve learned to either book a day earlier or a day later to accommodate my schedule and not ask for something that likely will never happen which is an early checkin or late checkout.

I prefer to dictate my schedule vs. trying to figure out what to do with the gaps.

Correct for HGVC along with 4 PM check-in.

It is also interesting to note that at Ocean Oak they will give you 5K Hilton Honors points (I think that it previously was 10K) if you check-out before 8 AM.

Have you ever seen the condition of the rooms after the guests left? These are not hotel rooms with one or two beds and one bathroom that can be cleaned quickly especially with a kitchen. It is an entitled world where people demand a early check in and a late check out. I hope those people leave the housekeepers a big tip.

That’s what we’ve learned to do as well. Most of the time it’s an extra day so we can check out for a later flight.

I understand the concept and just think an 11am would be better, or some system that allows housekeeping to work on the rooms where people that check out earlier and allow some flexibility.

If I have a later flight like 10pm then I will book an extra night, but sometimes you book a 2pm or 3pm flight and I would rather be less stressed on the checkout.

Perhaps they just need to add a $50 fee for a noon and $100 fee for 2pm late checkout like some hotels offer.

That said, I have gotten 11am and 12pm checkout at KL as either I got lucky or they treat owners better :)

Saturday’s at OO, they have a reception where’s there is food and drink starting at 2:00. Any owner can go, but it’s meant for those checking in on Saturday’s. At least 2 years ago they had that option.

I have been told that 95% of the room turn over happens on Saturday.

Embarc has 11am checkout for its members who have booked with their points (4pm check-in). Exchangers etc have a 10am checkout.

Still available. It lasts until 6pm and the problem is we are still unloading into our room after a long drive.

We had 10am check out at Orange Lake, housekeeping knocked on our door at 8:30 am. I don’t like being pushed out before scheduled time.

We had the same thing, only every 20 minutes, at KBC one time. Finally told her we’d planned to be out by 9:30 to catch our flight, if only she stopped forcing me to answer the door yet again!

I also don't like it when housekeeping is hovering outside our door just waiting for us to leave, looking at me each time I go in and out with a trip to our vehicle.

And I am sure that some of the people who have been there for a week are leaving the place a mess.

In Hawaii our return flight home is usually around 11pm. Once we had kids we booked an extra day at the timeshare and would checkout around 8pm.

You don’t want to hear this story, but the last time we went to OO, we checked in about 1:00. We arrived on a Tuesday and asked if we could get in early if we arrived before 4:00. We called about 10:00 and they said we wouldn’t be able to but when we got there, they said it was ready. I think there were so few people checking in they were already finished with housekeeping.

I just checked. For our Maui Hill condo check in is at 4 p.m., but check out is 11 a.m. And they are very happy to hold luggage (and deliver it to your unit) if you check in earlier than 4 p.m.

Checkout in Chicago is 11:00 AM and they will also hold your luggage for you as well.
