Room we got was horrible, my wife would not even get in the shower. Front door you could see through the wood because of water damage. The people at the check in were very nice, but it all stopped there.

This is a vintage motel, lots of 50's character and charm. Be prepared for a little funkiness as well, but overall, well done. Period furniture, I had a complete kitchen and dining nook in my spacious king bed suite with ceiling fan and large, walk-in closet. If there were anything to do in T or C other than take mineral...

I stayed here upon the recommendation of a friend and was shocked when I opened the door to my room. The outside is not impressive but I was hopeful when checking in that the rooms would not be as uninviting as the outside and lobby area. The room was horrible and like others that have stayed here and left a... More

I went to the Charles Motel for much needed relaxation and a break from the daily grind. I heard they had the hot mineral water tubs and with my muscles in knots this was icing on the cake. I don't really care for chain motels and lack of character. I only stay at those when nothing to my preference is... More

We spent two nights here in January and had a marvelous time. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's a funky place, with lots of character, so don't expect a luxury spa treatment. But it's cozy and inviting, so if you just need a place to relax and soak, this is a wonderful choice. The staff were helpful in recommending... More

When I went into the Charles for a soak, the friendly man at the reception desk remembered me, even though I hadn't been in for over five months! He gave me a fluffy towel, and I was on my way to the back for my soak. The water was hot and wonderful, as always. After an hour in that water,... More

Met by a really friendly receptionist on arrival. Big room with good aircon and a huge comfortable bed. Carpet was a bit dated, but who cares. Walk-in wardrobe, ironing facilities, full kitchen, bathroom with powerful shower and big fluffy towels. And all for under 40 quid!!

I am a world traveler. Having been a regular guest at the Charles Hotel and Spa for seven years, I would like to say that compared to all the places I have stayed, this is by far the most comfortable and accommodating place I have ever visited. This is not a cookie-cutter, plastic, or flamboyant southwestern-style hotel. The proprietor Kathy... More

For only $5, you can soak indoors for an hour in hot hot water, and you get a towel! The staff is very friendly and take pride in the fact that all tubs are cleaned between soaks. The water is very hot and wonderful. Men and women are in separate parts of the building. Each tub is in its own... More
