The King Charles Inn is located in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. The Inn is comfortable and well maintained. All common areas were kept spotless. The entire staff are friendly, polite and helpful.

The rooms are nice and the service is very friendly, but the lounge, pool area, and check-in area are small and quite packed. The location is convenient to everything in the downtown Charleston area. Breakfast is not included but they have a small brew pub where you can purchase it.

Friends and I stayed at the King Charles Hotel in May 2015, and although it lacked some of the quaint, southern charm it was a fabulous location, had a friendly and knowledgeable staff and was very comfortable and clean.

This was our first visit to Charleston and this hotel was great. It's in a perfect spot for tourists to walk to everything downtown. You're one street away from shopping at the nicer stores and one street away from the outdoor market. There are so many places to eat right around the hotel, it's hard to choose. The rooms are...

King Charles Inn is in a great location, and we loved the quiet, boutique hotel. I also loved having the balcony off our room. It was like having an extra room for us to relax in. Plus, the room was decorated very well!

The room was clean, quiet, modern and bright. The bathroom was well stocked. Plenty of free, off street parking. Very convenient for walking around downtown. Bike rental directly across the street. Lots of nearby restuarants. Greatly enjoyed the complimentary cheese, crackers, olives and grapes during happy hour. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

This boutique hotel in Charleston is a little gem. The hotel seemed to anticipate a guest's every need, including mini refrigerators and room safes. The room was very clean and well appointed. The entire staff took pride in their work from the housekeepers to the reception staff. If you like personalized service and fine accommodations, stay at the King Charles... More

I stayed here with my wedding party and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. I was very grateful to have an upgraded room to provide space for everyone to get ready and it was wonderful to have staff who recognized me and my special day. It really added to the magic of my wedding day.
