From the moment we entered the King Charles Inn, we were instantly treated like royals. The staff was very charming and willing to help us in any way that they could. It was raining when we checked in, and we were immediately offered a large, King Charles Inn umbrella to use during our visit. We stayed in a luxury king... More

The King Charles Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Charleston. Its location cannot be topped. It has just what you need, staff is very helpful but not overbearing. Brew pub at King Charles is very comfortable place to get a drink. So nice to have access to your car while on a trip. Thanks King Charles. I've been... More

Definitely recommend for staying in Charleston. It is in a good location, close to all plus the staff is friendly and helpful to boot. Not only is it close to the sites but also to some good restaurants. Parking is also included in their price. While breakfast is not included, one morning we were there they had the praline pancakes... More

The hotel was in a great location and had easy to access, free parking. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was beautiful, and the balcony we had was worth it since we were able to enjoy the nice weather! I will definitely be back!

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. We had 2 adjoining rooms that were infested with flying insects. The restaurant lost our order and the food was not good. On top of that, we parked where the bellboy instructed and our car was sideswiped. I won't be staying here again.

I would highly recommend this hotel if you stay in Charleston. Everyone on staff went above and beyond to make our anniversary and vacation exceptional. The facility is in one of the best locations close to everything.

I stayed here for business and enjoyed my stay very much. The staff is not only extremely friendly but exceptionally helpful. The rooms are nice - very comfortable with a touch of southern charm and the location is perfectly central. They also had free wifi which was nice. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because... More

The Charleston Inn is the perfect location for walking to restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing. The famous market is only a couple blocks away. It was beautifully decorated and comfortable, a great place to enjoy the south and low country!

The King Charles Inn is a charming older hotel right in the middle of Charleston. It's a relatively easy walk to most attractions and if you're going farther afield there are always plenty of cabs and pedicabs. The rooms are nice, but nothing fancy. There's a small pool. The common areas are smallish, but quaint. What really sets this hotel... More
