The location is close to ideal - you're right in the middle of the historical part of town. The room was pretty cozy, the bed comfortable, you get tea and coffeemaking equipment and free supplies. The rooms on the top floor are only accessible through a second elevator, the entrance to which is way in the back, behind the parking... More

My husband and I came to SC to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. This was our first trip to Charleston and we booked a private condo with AirBNB. We didn't realize the condo was not in a savory area nor had it been cleaned when we arrived (more to the story but you get the point we couldn't stay there).... More

We were able to walk to all the historic attractions and restaurants. The rooms were very clean and comfirtable. Nice breakfast selections. Happy hour with free snacks. The only issue we had was the ice cold rooms and hallways.

The King Charles Inn is within walking distance of many sites and stores. The service from every employee was great! The front desk employees were helpful, and they suggested great restaurants. The employees in the restaurant were excellent. The breakfast was delicious and very reasonably priced. The parking was free and the room was really clean. I would definitely stay... More

Just spent a couple of nights at the King Charles Inn. The front desk staff were all great and welcoming. Monica who checked us in recommended a couple of different places to eat and they were all fabulous. She took extra time to help us get our bearings on the map at the desk. The room was spacious and clean.... More

We spent four nights here and would have loved to stay more. Beds comfortable, room size great, staff attentive and located in the heart of the historic district. Parking is free and under the hotel. We were extremely pleased. Breakfast is not included, but it is not expensive and was very good. Would we stay here again? Yes.

I stayed here for one night prior to a conference and was very impressed. Very accomodating and helpful front staff. Great little bar and restaurant. Lovely, very well appointed room and bathroom. Lobby and elevators and some stairs from front desk. I am not sure how physically disabled guests would manage.

I keep seeing posts about the noise and construction next door. We stayed here for 4 days and NEVER heard construction noise! Of course with a million things to do and see, we were gone for the most of the day. Friendly staff, good location and the bathrooms are big.
