Things we loved about this hotel-Location, nice bathrooms, energetic, friendly, helpful staff.
The only complaint was the mattress. Probably time to replace, very saggy. However, would stay here again.
Just a heads up, the view in half of the rooms is to the parking lot. However, it was fine. Lots of light, comfortable, and pretty room. It's not the Ritz, but very enjoyable! This area is not about the view, it is about the location, easy to walk everywhere you want to go.

We certainly appreciate you taking the time to share your awesome feedback with others. Thank you for choosing our hotel. By the way, I will email you regarding the sagging mattress. They are all brand new so I will have maintenance check the "slats" to make sure they did not move under the bed. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. We should have noticed this. Sorry!

This was our second stay at the King in the last 4 months. We returned to a remodeled sitting area along with the bar and lounge and we were not disappointed. General Manager Maureen Sheridan had a handwritten welcome note waiting for us when we got to our room which was very nice (so was the pecan caramel...thanks). I have traveled to many places and hotels and I must say that the staff at the King Charles is outstanding. Everything other reviewers say to the positive is true. It is within walking distance to so many restaurants and tourist spots, or you can catch a cab or pedicab and be at your destination in minutes. And if you check other hotels in the area, you will appreciate the free and close parking at this hotel. I loved the shower with it's hand held sprayer/shower head. Love the Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, the Manager's Reception and Happy Hour everyday in the bar, and the breakfast menu of on site prepared selections. Everything was clean and fresh. And our mattress was much improved from our last stay.
Everyone at this hotel is friendly and accommodating to the extreme right down to our housekeeper. All of this made our second visit to Charleston quite enjoyable.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 215. The window view is of the driveway from the parking lot. It was quiet, near the ice machine and the front of the hotel. The two beds made for a congested floor pattern. A king size bed would give more room but that's not what I reserved. The arm chair and ottoman were comfortable. There is a large bathroom, mini fridge, in room safe, large flat screen TV, coffee maker, writing desk and chair and lots of storage for clothes.

This is a great hotel in an excellent location. We loved the free parking! The total cost of our stay seemed very reasonable compared to the rates of other hotels near the same location. All the staff members were always very friendly and accomodating. Our room was clean and had a lot of little details that I enjoyed -- the "clean remote", safe, mini-refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, granite countertops, and (my favorite!) a lighted makeup mirror. My husband and I stayed in a queen room and it was fairly small, but it was spacious enough for us. I know the hotel offers larger rooms at an increased rate. The beds were not the most comfortable I've slept in and the air conditioning unit was a little noisy, but these were minor inconveniences. Overall, I was very impressed with the King Charles Inn and would stay at this hotel again in the future. Highly recommend to other travelers!

Thank you for noticing the value you receive at the King Charles Inn! The little things sometime go unnoticed! Our guests just love the new Keurig Coffee makers in the guest rooms and of course the Gilchrist and Soames! Thanks again and we hope you can return in the future!

Exceptional and attentive staff that anticipated my needs. Charmed by the decor and fine details. Granite vanity counter tops. Great location: the market, Marion square, and historic sites in walking distance. Very clean.
