My group heartily recommends the King Charles Inn for its superb service, convenient location in the heart of the historic district, the helpfulness of the front desk in recommending restaurants, pedicabs, and places of interest. The dining room and bar are excellent. A very worthwhile and memorable stay. --Tennessee Chapter of the Society of King Charles the Martyr

Having never been to Charleston before, looking for the correct location, price point and experience in a hotel was imperative. I of course went to Trip Advisor, narrowed it down to a couple of choices and then picked the King Charles Inn. Boy was that the correct decision. The moment the booking was made the hotel e-mailed to remind me... More

The King Charles Inn is a charming & well located hotel within walking distance of most of what we wanted to see in Charleston. Monica and Dana (desk clerks) were available each morning to give us tips on where to eat and what to see in the city. Our hotel room was clean & quiet, the beds were comfortable &... More

This hotel had beautiful rooms and friendly staff but did not meet our expectations for the $272/night price. No valet parking, hallways and rooms were still being cleaned during check-in (4pm), bathroom vent did not work in 1 room (we booked 2) the rooms were not beside each other and were booked at least 5 months out. Bags were only... More

The location and staff are top notch. The room was amazingly large, quiet(#528) , and comfy like home. Loved the fridge that we could actually use without penalty. Many little extras like snacks at cocktail hour , cookies, nice, in case you should somehow get hungry while in such a great food town.

King Charles Inn is a nice inn close to all the historic and shopping Charleston has to offer. Great staff. Parking was easy and free. I would recommend that the inn offer some kind of food at lunch and in the evening. Otherwise, our stay was delightful.

I booked the King Charles last minute on my way to Charleston and was exceptionally impressed. The staff was great and had our room ready even though we’d only made the reservation 30 minutes prior to our arrival. We had a huge truck and were very concerned about accessible parking. Parking here was ample and FREE! This was a huge... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the King Charles Inn. We located the excellent deal on the TravelZoo website, and being first timers to Charleston weren't sure if we picked the right location or quality of hotel. Very charming place with large well-appointed rooms. Fantastic location, literally a 3 minute walk to the heart of King Street for all its shopping... More

This hotel is the best of everything. Large rooms that are comfortable, pretty and quiet. the location is superb. It is close to everything. The staff could not be better. the cheese and cracker reception in the afternoon is just another bonus. I will stay here again when in Charleston. It exceeded my expectations.
