Very nice,clean, and everyone helps you with directions and all questions you have. They even help find you your choice of parking behind and under the hotel. The location is right in the center of everything. It is at the corner of Meeting Street and Market Street and only a short block behind the hotel are the shops that are... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at the King Charles Inn! The location was perfect. Parking is free and convenient. We were greeted very warmly when we checked in and each time we passed through reception the team were friendly & cheerful. Our room was plenty big enough (double/double), attractively decorated and spotlessly clean. So too was the bathroom. We... More

Great staff and facility. Ample off street parking. Very good breakfast. Cookies in the evening a nice touch. Great location, easy walking distance to all downtown attractions, as well as river cruises.

We started here as part of a long girls weekend. We had a fine stay, our room was tiny but clean. We enjoyed the restaurant and the convenient location of this hotel. We ended our trip with two nights at B & B, which we loved. You just need to know what you want out of your trip to Charleston--this... More

The King Charles Inn is a wonderful resort, centrally located to so many great shops and restaurants, and offers free parking which is such a nice touch. The resort is lovely, the rooms clean, attractive and comfortable, and the restaurant very good. We will always plan to stay here when in Charleston because there just isn't a nicer resort for...

DO: This location is perfect. Close to shopping district downtown plus most of the tours. Room service was excellent. Mattress was very comfortable. I do not have anything negative to say honestly. We had a great time :-)
