Absolutely loved staying at the King Charles Inn. The staff treats you like you are a guest in their own home. The bellman and the staff in the Pub and Café were always friendly. The environment was warm and felt like home.

Great location – walking distance to most restaurants, the market and various attractions. The rooms were nice and the beds were comfy. The happy hour offered at the hotel bar was a nice touch with cheese and crackers. The bar itself was nicely decorated and the staff at the bar was friendly and went above and beyond. The breakfast offered... More

Sure, this hotel is clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. But what makes it exceptional is the staff and the details in the room. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, providing the kind of service I tend to associate with hotels costing twice the price of the King Charles. We felt welcomed in the hotel, were shown to our room... More

From the minute we walked into this hotel we felt at home. The staff was friendly and helpful greeting us cheerily each and every time we passed the front desk. Our room, though not the largest we have ever stayed in, was spotless and nicely appointed. The beds were comfortable, the lighting was superior and any glassware ( mugs, tumblers)... More

We were very happy with our choice of hotel. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and checked in immediately. The room was spacious and clean, and included a small (hidden) refrigerator, iron and ironing board, a Keurig coffeed maker (and a sufficient number of coffee pods), in room safe and plenty of hangers and drawers for clothing. The beds (and... More

A gem of hotels in Charleston. It is perfectly located in the middle of just about everything. A most welcoming daytime reception staff greeting me with smiles and offers of help. Super clean well kept room with no lingering cigarette odors. A delightful respite while attending a rigorous conference!

King Charles is centrally located in all the great attractions that Charleston has to offer. The staff is amazing and very pleasant to work with. They were quick to resolve any request. The quality of the room did not meet our expectations for the price we paid. The bedding made for a very uncomfortable stay. That is the one thing... More

We had a very pleasant stay in a very comfortable room. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and updated although they are small, even with the King size. Nevertheless the rooms are perfectly adequate. The location is outstanding and the price is very fair. My only suggestion is that they should have a bellman at... More

Thank you for the honest feedback! I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit. I will follow-up with my staff as there should have been both a Doorman and Bellman available; I do apologize. I will also recognize BREW Café for the take-out breakfast! More
