    Had a wonderful time at King Charles Inn. It was great to sit by the pool after waking in the heat and relax. Having a drink while relaxing by the pool was even better. Free on site parking, and friendly people made are 2 day stay a joy.

    The front desk did a great job of assisting me with mailing a box to a family member. They did everything from find the box, tape it up, and mail it for me. It was so nice to know it was taken care of. Also Taylor the bartender was great! He made our stay very memorable.

    The entire staff was wonderful. When I mentioned that we were going to the beach they loaned us beach chairs and even loaded them in my car for me. The cookies at night were a big hit with my teenage daughter and the afternoon cheese was a wonderful way to relax after walking around Charleston. Great hotel and staff!

    Everything in the hotel is first class. The only thing that was not real good was the air conditioning. I set the thermostat to 66 and the coolest that it got was 74. Probably just the age of the system, plus it was really hot when we were there. Will go back the next time we travel to Charleston. The... More

    We had an enjoyable stay overall. The location was the best feature of this hotel. It was a block from King St and two blocks from Market St. The hotel was clean and charming. The front desk staff were professional and always helpful. The only complaint was the lack of comfort of our mattress. We woke with stiff middle backs... More
