Found this hotel on trip advisor and was quite pleased with this selection. The hotel is downtown very near all central tourist areas. The rooms were nice and clean, staff pleasant and helpful and the free parking was appreciated. We arrived later in the day and there was not any parking on site but they do have a lot across...

This was a recommendation for us to try. We did. We loved it. The location is right off King Street and you can walk anywhere. A real bonus is the FREE parking, as we drove and found parking to be scarce in the downtown area. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about everything in the area. The quaint bar... More

We spent a while searching for a great hotel in which we would really be blown away. We had an amazing stay however we didn't have the wow factor... We called to make our reservation, and the front desk clerk who took our call was beyond helpful, information and professional. He was friendly and gave a number of concierge recommendations,...

We had a great stay at the King Chares Inn. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff was super friendly and the rate was great. We would definitely stay there again if we visit the historic area of Charleston again.

Had a great time in the middle of Charleston. Could not have asked for a better location with an affordable price tag. Great restaurants down the street, shopping an easy walk and just about everything on site. Had a great little bar, which doubled as the breakfast room in the morning. Service staff was extremely helpful and attentive.

We booked out stay thru Hotels.com and they said that the Inn had free breakfast and was pet friendly. Both were wrong!!! Other than that the experience was a great and friendly one. Everyone was do super friendly. The room I was totally impressed with. Walking distance to all as well. I would definitely stay there again.

My wife and I were very pleased with our stay here while on a short vacation to Charleston. We called ahead on our way because we knew we would arrive pretty early and wanted to know if we could park in the hotel's lot. It was no problem at all. We arrived 3.5 hours early and were immediately greeted by... More

Really lovely property on Meeting Street. Very walkable and close to a number of attractions, restaurants, and bars. The room was well appointed and the beds were comfortable. We did not notice any noise from the outside, and the construction going on next door really wasn't an issue. The Brew Pub was nice and fine for a quick breakfast or... More

There are things to like about the King Charles and others that may make you scratch your head. At the end of the day, however, the King Charles can be a nice little hotel. On the top of my list is the fact that the hotel is located in the heart of the action. It's close to some top Charleston... More
