This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. From the welcoming in the lobby to the joy of seeing our beautiful room, I've never been so impressed. Every staff member made you feel at home. Parking was free and breakfast was made to order. A comfortable lounge by the pool was a great place to relax. It's... More

The Inn is very quaint and the staff very polite and friendly. We arrived late at night due to flight delays, and someone was there to great us. There was a little mix-up with the number of nights we were staying, but it was quickly resolved. Our room was very quiet with thick doors and walls. The hallways are just... More

I would recommend the King Charles Inn, if for nothing else than the location. It is close to Market St. and East Bay, as well King St. The hotel is nicely decorated, and the upper lobby had quaint sitting areas to relax. The guest rooms were decent and clean. The beds weren't the best, but good enough. We enjoyed the... More

Thank you for the nice review. I do, however, apologize for the less than pleasant Front Desk incident. I am disappointed to hear this and I will certainly follow-up on your comments. Thank you again for choosing our hotel! More

This hotel is in great location - walking distance to many sights! The desk staff is very helpful, the rooms are great, and service is all around great. There is a full service, delicious breakfast with a very friendly staff, always courteous and helpful. The upstairs lobby is a great place to lounge while waiting for your group to gather... More

Stayed only one night while visiting the College, wish I could have stayed longer. Travelled with my daughter so I booked a room with 2 beds. When we arrived at 6:30pm, front desk staff advised that the hotel was full and they had no more double rooms so they had given us a king room and brought in a rollaway.... More

Stayed there one night before moving to another hotel last week (last minute decision to fly to CHS early!). From the time we checked in until we left, it was nothing but wonderful. Staff very helpful and friendly and the hotel itself is so well decorated with lots of little nooks to just sit and watch the world go by.... More

I really thought this was a wonderful hotel except that there is major construction going on next door. I woke up the next morning to pounding from machinery at 8:00 am. Unfortunately this additional feature isn't included in the hotels advertisements. I believe that guests that book this hotel should be informed of the construction next door before booking the...

I am glad to hear you enjoyed your visit despite the construction going on next door. Because the noise and work is intermittent, we do not want to post this on our website and deter future business. There are days they do not work at all and plenty of days there is zero noise. I apologize that this interfered with... More

This hotel is located on Meeting Street in the Historic District. It's quiet, the parking is free, the staff are extremely pleasant, & the rooms are very nice. Free Wi-Fi, good speed. Walk to all great restaurants, super shopping on Market St. which becomes a pedestrian mall every second Sunday. Eat at tables on the street, listen to the fun... More

Six of us ladies travel each year as a treat for us as we end our United State Tennis League. This is our fourth year and my idea was to go to Charleston. I picked the place and I picked the King Charles Inn and I was not sorry or were the other ladies. We had three rooms. Great location.... More

We spent a couple of nights in Charleston at the King Charles Inn. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The location is great. Not far from the City Market and across the street is a trolley stop. Of course the best way to see Charelston is to walk and it is a great location to walk the many beautiful... More
