The places that rent per day, all close at 3pm. So I can rent at 8am the day before, but getting back by 3pm on the day of the ride would be tough, therefore needs a third day. 7am start, assuming 7 hour ride, means get back down at 2pm, and that is without the car ride back to the shop, which is not near the climb.
(The difference in closing times is missing information. People are generally going to assume "all things are equal" for information that is missing.)

It's possible that the places with 3:00PM closings would let you bring the bike in early the following day without needing to pay for the extra day.
