Re: do you need reservations to stay at a love motel?

If you're worried, make one. A lot won't let you rent until after 8 pm. You can't check in at 3 or 4 in the afternoon.

and by then it's getting packed.

Possible to rent a hotel room for the night around dinner time?
« Reply #62 on: July 26, 2011, 07:49:16 am »
I'm looking to stay at a hotel on Wednesday. Ideally I'd like to get the room around dinner time. I've heard that on Friday's/Saturday's you have to wait until around 10 PM before you can enter your hotel room, is that the same for "slow" days (like Wednesday)? If it is, then do I have to rent the room for a couple of hours (i.e. 6 PM to 10 PM), then pay for the room for the night (10 PM to 11 AM the following day)?

You can rent a room whenever for however long.  Why do you need a hotel for only a few hours?  Hooker?

This is not true at all hotels.  As the OP stated, many hotels (particularly on the weekends) will not allow you to check in before 10 PM.  Perhaps the OP is coming from out of town and wishes to put their stuff in a room before heading out for the evening. 

Please remember this is a teaching forum, and professional conduct is encouraged.

To the OP:  Where are you going?  Have you looked into getting a hostel?  Most have very flexible check-in hours, and you can opt for a private room if you are worried about people going through your things.

It totally depends on the particular hotel. You can also try hostels if you are just yourself and looking for a place to crash. There are also real hotels instead of love hotels if you are willing to pay more. Check in is earlier.

If you want a non-love hotel that is cheap, check out Toyoko-Inn. They have several in Seoul and Busan.

Merged the thread about reservations at dinner into the larger love motel thread.

Clearly, the OP was asking about the time motels start renting rooms for the night, not about simply getting one for a few hours. His/her question was whether s/he'd need to rent one for a few hours in order to hold it for the night. 

Where exactly are you looking?  I've rented rooms for the night (and for several nights) earlier in the day in Seoul, Gwangju, Busan, and around Jeollanam-do.  The only places I've had some trouble were near Insa-dong (they made us wait later), and near Gangnam/Yeoksam Station, essentially a pink-light district that makes its money off of short stays.

I'm actually looking for one near Gangnam station. I want to book the room around dinner time, leave my valuables in the room, go for some dinner, and then go back to the room to sleep.

how much stuff do you have? if you don't have a giant suitcase, then i would just put my stuff in a locker in the station. go to dinner, drinks, whatever, then pick your stuff up and get the room. a lot of the motels don't give you keys, you just go in the opened room and lock it. even if you find one that hands you a key, i think you'd be taking a risk in trusting the owners of a love motel with your belongings.

best.
