My husband and I stayed here for three nights at the end of October. It was a wonderful stay. Terry, one of the innkeepers, was friendly, well informed and baked great bread for breakfast. (He even gave me the receipe.)His wife, though around less, was friendly and keeps the home looking beautiful with lots of outside plants and seasonal decorations. This was our 4th visit to Charleston, one of our favorite cities, and staying at the King George made the visit even better. One quiet afternoon, Terry even gave us a tour of some of the inn's 9 other rooms. The rooms are all uniquely decorated and ours (1B) had a beautiful iron bed and furnishings. The inn's friendly cat, Victoria, added to the feeling that you were at someone's home.
The inn is centrally located and it is easy to walk to almost all areas of downtown. Breakfast is varied and good and a nice chance to talk with other visitors. We will definitely stay here again.
