I had to pay $25 to check in early. This was fine with me because I was able to eat breakfast and they have a nice breakfast buffet. Nicer than the USA style breakfasts that are typical to holiday inns.

The shuttle is labeled, easy to tell. Never had a problem. If so, I’m sure you can call, or take taxi. It’s only a 2-5 minute ride across the street from the airport
