My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the King Charles, where the owner/manager and staff made us feel very welcome. It was great for an older middle aged couple who wanted to be two blocks from the beach, and to rest & recover from a VERY busy summer! Don't expect modern or fancy accommodations, or spa towels and soaps,... More

My wife and I had never been to ocean city before, so we decided on a last second visit on a budget. This hotel was reasonably priced and was available for our dates. More importantly, it had far better reviews that similar hotels in its class. The hotel lived up to its rating and we had a very nice stay,... More

Just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone that this hotel was clean, maintained, and located very conveniently to get to the boardwalk, beach, etc. Since the property is small the owners/employees care and help where they can. Good suggestions for our two days in OC with great grandma, grandma, my wife, my wife's brother, me, my two kids... More

It's a basic hotel situated in excellent location. Hotel is very clean and well kept. It can be considered old fashioned. There are no elevators so it was a drag for us to walk to the 3rd floor. Bathroom is small and not a big space for shower. You have to put all your stuff in the floor and there... More

My husband & I stayed here just one night (a Saturday). The King Charles is a 3 story, wood structured building, built in the 1940's. It is obviously lovingly cared for, clean, quaint, & quiet. Pride in ownership is very apparent, & the owners/managers - a husband & wife team, are very nice! The hotel is within easy walking distance... More

I waited around until the last minute looking for hotel deals and I'm glad I did! I've never been to a bed and breakfast style hotel before so my first impression was superb! It was like visiting that special relative that we all have that makes us feel right at home when you come to town. The couple that runs... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the King Charles during the 1st weekend in May and absolutely enjoyed everything about our stay. Very close to the beach, very clean and the owners were very nice and helpful when trying to find great places to eat. When we return to O.C., there is no doubt we will be staying there again....

I stayed at the King Charles Hotel in 2013 and was very satisfied with the stay. I went with my girlfirend in June. The rooms are nothing special and thats fine. Air conditioning worked fine. The rooms were clean. It was a good location as it was a quick walk to the boardwalk. It was senior week so there were... More

The King Charles has some very strict rules, like no partying and clean the sand before you come back in. These are rules we can live with! My husband and I loved that it was quiet, convenient, and (most importantly) very clean. You can tell that it's an older building, but it's very well-kept and doesn't have a "musty" smell... More

The is a very nice place to stay in Ocean City, Md. The owners showed us the room first and it was very clean. They were so helpful with recommendations to eat and extremely friendly!
