Great hotel, easy to find, staff was very attentive and helpful. Rooms were spacious, well kept and clean. Parking was easy. Hotel near several restaurants, ART fair, shops, etc. Check-in was a breeze, the staff really the best. Easily a 5 out of 5 rating!

Excellant hotel in everyway. Our choice in Charleston. Very convenient to Charleston's market, historic district and fanbulous food. Hotel staff was excellant and very attentive. The hotel was clean and all amenities were on point. I am a frequent travelor and this hotel is hard to match in every way.

Right in the heart of historic Charleston-easy walking distance to everywhere. Great restaurants close by. The staff was the difference. Every person we encountered was happy and was concerned about our stay. They were always asking about our day! Cheese and crackers in the afternoon, evening cookies and free bottled water in the room were nice touches. FREE parking! Loved... More

Free Parking at the King Charles Inn is such a wonderful perk you cannot find anywhere else in Charleston! I am glad to hear our staff provided that added extra care and we hope to see you again soon! More

For us the King Charles was in the perfect locale. Conveniently situated close to King and Market Streets, as well as numerous fabulous eateries, this one was a winner for us. The room itself seemed a wee bit small, but was otherwise well appointed. The valet parking was such a perk and rarity in Charleston. And you know, sometimes it's... More

I went to Charleston by myself for 6 days after a loss of a very close family member. Noone there knew that but I couldn't have picked a better place to heal. Everyone at the hotel was most accommodating, helpful and polite. The city is fabulous and I felt like I was home at the hotel.

This hotel is for frequent travellers who want to feel at home. It reminds me of staying at authentic hotels in Paris. If you want to be in a great location and feel like a local then the rooms and lobby are a little smaller but it is entirely charming.
