We booked King Charles for a last-minute July 4th getaway. It's located off the boardwalk with easy access to the beach. It doesn't have a ton of character but is a good alternative to huge hotels that look like prisons (prevalent in OC). The rooms are fairly spartan but spotless. There is a mini fridge and good wi-fi signal. The... More

King Charles is a good choice if you want to be close to the beach and boardwalk but away from all the noise. The owner mans the front desk and I find that refreshing. She bakes cookies for the guests in the evening and takes the time to talk to the guests and offer advice for food and fun. The... More

If you are looking for a very affordable, clean, friendly, and convenient place in Ocean City, Maryland, this may be the place for you! I have stayed here at least five times now and I've always had a great experience. If you're looking for a fancy and upscale place the you may want to pay extra for that. The rooms... More

We love this hotel. Extremely clean and staff very friendly. It is a good location and a really great price for being the middle of summer. We will definitely stay here again. The staff is always very willing to help with whatever your needs are. I am physically handicapped and they were extremely accommodating.

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.

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.

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
