This hotel is in great location - walking distance to many sights! The desk staff is very helpful, the rooms are great, and service is all around great. There is a full service, delicious breakfast with a very friendly staff, always courteous and helpful. The upstairs lobby is a great place to lounge while waiting for your group to gather... More

Stayed only one night while visiting the College, wish I could have stayed longer. Travelled with my daughter so I booked a room with 2 beds. When we arrived at 6:30pm, front desk staff advised that the hotel was full and they had no more double rooms so they had given us a king room and brought in a rollaway.... More

Stayed there one night before moving to another hotel last week (last minute decision to fly to CHS early!). From the time we checked in until we left, it was nothing but wonderful. Staff very helpful and friendly and the hotel itself is so well decorated with lots of little nooks to just sit and watch the world go by.... More

I really thought this was a wonderful hotel except that there is major construction going on next door. I woke up the next morning to pounding from machinery at 8:00 am. Unfortunately this additional feature isn't included in the hotels advertisements. I believe that guests that book this hotel should be informed of the construction next door before booking the...

I am glad to hear you enjoyed your visit despite the construction going on next door. Because the noise and work is intermittent, we do not want to post this on our website and deter future business. There are days they do not work at all and plenty of days there is zero noise. I apologize that this interfered with... More

This hotel is located on Meeting Street in the Historic District. It's quiet, the parking is free, the staff are extremely pleasant, & the rooms are very nice. Free Wi-Fi, good speed. Walk to all great restaurants, super shopping on Market St. which becomes a pedestrian mall every second Sunday. Eat at tables on the street, listen to the fun... More

Six of us ladies travel each year as a treat for us as we end our United State Tennis League. This is our fourth year and my idea was to go to Charleston. I picked the place and I picked the King Charles Inn and I was not sorry or were the other ladies. We had three rooms. Great location.... More

We spent a couple of nights in Charleston at the King Charles Inn. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The location is great. Not far from the City Market and across the street is a trolley stop. Of course the best way to see Charelston is to walk and it is a great location to walk the many beautiful... More

A great affordable place to stay in the historical district of Charleston. We were able to park our car in their free parking area and walked everywhere we wanted to go. The area around the Inn is clean, well-lit and feels very safe. At night we felt safe walking home after a late dinner or after we attended a late... More

The service at King Charles was excellent. The front desk staff, waiters in the restaurant, and the hotel's manager all did what they could to make our stay comfortable and memorable. We were aware of the nearby construction before arriving so planned accordingly. The noise began at 8 am, but did not disturb our stay. We were up and out... More
