I am assuming that you don't have a key hole in the driver side door or on the rear door. If that is the case, then hook up jumper cables from one car to yours long enough to unlock and open the doors.

But the hood release is inside.

Turned out she had so much salt on car she could not see key hole!

Lol that's funny. I'm sorry I didn't back to you sooner. But in the future and for other readers, the hood can be popped open with a large screwdriver. There is a spring and a metal plate. Stick the screwdriver between that plate and the clasp, note that the spring will be one opposite side of where the screwdriver goes. Then turn hard. This mimics pulling the hood cord from inside.
