I can't say enough what a great time we had at King George IV Inn. Terry was a grand host and made us feel quite at home even from our first phone conversation! The Inn was fantastic...not overly fancy, but we thought it had just the right amount of elegance and tons of charm. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. My boyfriend and I kept saying how it felt like we were really staying in someone's home as opposed to a hotel. We stayed in Room 6 on the 3rd floor which had a shared patio/porch that we really enjoyed as well as the cheery red color scheme throughout the room. In fact, we had such a lovely time there that we stayed 2 nights instead of the 1 we had planned. Well-situated near the College of Charleston campus, the hotel is close to tons of great restaurants on King St as well as a short walk down to the Battery area. When we arrived, Terry sat down with us and gave us a map which he highlighted with restaurant recommendations, things to see, etc. I showed this map to a friend who has lived in Charleston for 15 years, and he was impressed with Terry's suggestions, saying that he hooked us up with the real local favorites! Breakfast was terrific as well, with plenty of options, and cooked to order. All in all, if you are looking for a very comfortable, well-located, well-run and beautiful hotel in Charleston...for the price, The King George IV Inn is awesome! It's our favorite hotel thus far on our 3 week journey across the South. It's a terrific value, and you won't be disappointed.
