Very professional operation. Finding something to complain about would be very difficult. Enjoyed our stay very much and would go back here with no hesitation . Very quiet after hours. The owner takes pride in what she does and it shows.

My boyfriend and I first vacationed in OC in 2010. We chose the King Charles because of their great rates and location. Now 6 years later, we stay at the King Charles every summer, sometimes even twice a year! Marie, the owner, is amazing. Shes extremely helpful and accommodating. We always joke about how she's watched us grow up! The... More

My wife and I took a four day weekend and joined another couple. Our room was just what we needed. The hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and always available. We even had home-made brownies one night.

Dear Richard If you come to OC in 2016 I hope to see you. Thanks much for the review. We have made several changes in the hotel this past fall. All rooms were painted. Some rooms have new carpeting.

Very reasonable price considering that we were so close to the boardwalk and beach. Also, it was nice and quiet. The owner/manager was very friendly, and baked brownies or cookies for the guests each day! Also, the room was freshly painted. The main drawback was that the bathroom was small (especially the shower), and there wasn't much space to put... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the King Charles, where the owner/manager and staff made us feel very welcome. It was great for an older middle aged couple who wanted to be two blocks from the beach, and to rest & recover from a VERY busy summer! Don't expect modern or fancy accommodations, or spa towels and soaps,... More

My wife and I had never been to ocean city before, so we decided on a last second visit on a budget. This hotel was reasonably priced and was available for our dates. More importantly, it had far better reviews that similar hotels in its class. The hotel lived up to its rating and we had a very nice stay,... More

Just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone that this hotel was clean, maintained, and located very conveniently to get to the boardwalk, beach, etc. Since the property is small the owners/employees care and help where they can.

It's a basic hotel situated in excellent location. Hotel is very clean and well kept. It can be considered old fashioned. There are no elevators so it was a drag for us to walk to the 3rd floor. Bathroom is small and not a big space for shower. You have to put all your stuff in the floor and there... More

My husband & I stayed here just one night (a Saturday). The King Charles is a 3 story, wood structured building, built in the 1940's. It is obviously lovingly cared for, clean, quaint, & quiet. Pride in ownership is very apparent, & the owners/managers - a husband & wife team, are very nice! The hotel is within easy walking distance... More
