    Guests that check in between 2400 and 0700 will be charged for the previous night's stay.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Guests that check in between 2400 and 0700 will be charged for the previous night's stay because the hotel industry typically follows a 24-hour check-in/check-out policy.

Therefore, if a guest checks in between 2400 and 0700, it is considered as checking in on the previous day, and they will be charged for that night's stay.
