“Great accomodations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I stayed in the King George IV Inn recently while attending a multiday seminar that required quiet study time in the evening. The Inn was a wonderful location and had everything I needed for a great stay. It was unfornuate that some very loud construction started early every morning but I never had to worry about oversleeping. No noise problems in the evening. The staff was most apologetic for the situation, over which they had no control. They offered tea, sympathy and ear plugs. I will look forward to staying there again.

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business

This place is in a a great location and within easy walking distance to more tourist places than can be counted. The staff is the greatest. The rooms more than wonderful. If we return to the area this will be the first place we try and stay.

Room Tip: We had room 2 which is really a great location and wonderfully remodeled in the original style of th...

The King George IV Inn is in a great location - close to shopping, dozens of restaurants, the visitors center, etc., etc., but the rooms are very quiet. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, and clean. During the week, Charlene is there to welcome you, feed you, and answer all your questions - she's a real treasure. Breakfasts are simple, but with lots of the standard choices. And if, like us, you want to eat before the "official" 8:30 starting time for breakfast, there is a counter of cold foods plus coffee/tea that you can choose from. Highly recommended!

If you are traveling to Charleston, South Carolina, don't overlook the King George IV Inn during your stay. My husband and I recently stayed at the inn. I can not say enough about the lovely, spacious room., the friendly staff, especially Debra. She can tell you everything from where to eat, to what tours to take. She's very welcoming, and she makes you feel like family. The Innkeepers were wonderful, and the morning breakfast was great. We stayed in room 5 clean, very beautifully decorated, and spacious. We loved sitting on the porch at night after a long day of site seeing. The Magnolia Plantation was beautiful. If you would like to try southern style food, go to Juestine's. If you go for lunch, don't make dinner plans, you'll be to full. We stayed for 4 nights, and we will definitely be back. The Inn is located in the middle of everything, so it was very convenient.

Room Tip: Room 5 was very spacious, and the porch was private and great.

Ms. Charlene is a wealth of information and made my stay wonderful! I was with my sister and high school friend and we had an awesome time. The B&B is located within walking distance (like around the corner!) to alot of places especially the city market. Relaxing sitting on the porch secluded by the trees, sipping wine and eating cheese/crackers. Restaurants recommended: McCradys, Fig, Hominy Grill.
