I came across this gem while trying to see if I could find a better deal with a visit I had already planned for this past Christmas. I instantly fell in love with the pictures of the Christmas decor.. but who wouldn't?! I immediately cancelled my other reservations and booked the King Charles Inn for a little low country Christmas...

The King Charles Inn was perfect for a short trip to Charleston. In the heart of the French Quarter we could walk to world class restaurants in minutes. The hotel is very quiet and the staff pleasant and helpful. Parking was provided and complimentary...a big boon in the downtown area. Very nice beds (king size), linens -- overall a very...

The King Charles Inn was just what we were looking for. It's right in the heart of downtown between King and Meeting Streets, so basically everywhere on the peninsula that interested us was within a 15 minute walk. The rooms were clean and relatively quiet. The showers were really nice - quick to heat up and tall enough for someone...

We've stayed many times and have recommended it to numerous friends who all have the same great experience. The staff could not be friendlier. They do many little things for that many higher end properties do. PLUS, as far as I know, the only downtown property that doesn't charge for daily parking.

As I am sure you noticed, parking in downtown Charleston is tight. It is nice to know we are the only hotel in the historic district to offer on-site complimentary parking which saves you not only money but time as well! Thank you for sharing this great review with others!

Lovely resort, clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. The resort met my expectations and the price was reasonable. Clean rooms and welcoming reception area. The weather turned cold while we were there and the fireplace in the lounge was a treat. On-site parking for guests is a bonus. I would definitely stay here again.

We are return visitors to "The Kingdom" of The King Charles Inn. Yet another outstanding visit with our favorite boutique hotel in the South. The accommodations are top-shelf and the entire staff is incredibly friendly and professional. Even though it was the day before and the day of Thanksgiving, they were full-staffed, or gave the appearance of being fully staffed....

We actually stayed here June 2014. We did a lot of walking during our two days in Charleston, and it was nice staying in such a central location. It is HOT and HUMID in Charleston in the summer. Staff was great. We will definitely stay here again!

Service and location make the difference with this affordable Charleston hotel in the historic district. It's about a 15-minute walk to anywhere, a nice safe neighborhood with good restaurants right at hand. (For a fun breakfast, try Toast.) We liked the complimentary room upgrade to a king after booking the small queen; our room had a great bed and a...
