What a fabulous hotel. I stayed here while on a business trip in January. (Our company uses them often) David was at the front desk every day and was very nice and accommodating to all needs. Taylor in the bar was great at suggesting nearby restaurants to try as well. Check-in and Check-out were extremely easy and the front desk... More

Enjoyed our quick stay and took advantage of the free parking. Staff was extremely friendly. Room was small but comfortable. Wasn't able to take advantage of the pool, but hope to stay here again and do so.

Second time staying here and it was great again. Staff is great and location is perfect. Evening reception was relaxing and bartenders are exceptional. Love the city and this hotel. Can not wait to go back.

Perfect location right in the middle of the Historic District. Beautiful hotel with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. The Grill has a happy hour with complimentary snacks and is a great place to relax at the end of the day out walking and shopping. It also offers a nice simple breakfast at a reasonable price. Best of all -... More

Stayed last week for 2 nights at King Charles Inn. We arrived before check in time. We were offered a room, but told it overlooked construction, or offered another room that would be away from the construction, but ready later in the day. We accepted the room not over looking construction. They called my cell phone when the room was... More

I love going to Charleston, and this was the first time I decided to stay downtown. I booked this hotel as a package with Jet Blue, and I am glad I did! It was the perfect home base to walk around town. I did a lot of shopping along King Street, and the hotel was so close that I could... More

If you are looking for a hotel in Charleston with a great location, fantastic customer service, free parking, and wonderful amenities, choose King Charles Inn. We have been staying here on a trip from NH to Florida for six years, and thought we might be disappointed when it no longer was a Best Western.Quite the contrary is true; the hotel... More

Fantastic location and very friendly staff, but the front desk appeared confused a lot of the time. There was some confusion over reservations (we had reserved multiple rooms for a larger group and also had some billing problems due to this which have since been resolved). Also, we had arrived early and were told we'd receive a call when the... More

very clean and well appointed. Despite the noisy construction, efforts were made to minimize the inconvenience. We asked for a quiet room, and we got one. Free parking appreciated as well as being able to leave car in lot for a few hours after check-out. Front desk very friendly and helpful. Would return on a subsequent visit to this amazing... More

Two words sum it up: Free Parking! Our guests just love the idea of having full access to their cars and complimentary off-street parking. I am glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you can visit again in the near future! More
