“I would choose someplace else...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Although the front desk was very nice and welcoming everything else was in need of help. I stayed there in the month of July and that was a mistake. I was there for four days and NEVER got to go into the pool because it was full of running and screaming kids. Every morning breakfast was packed. We tried going each day at a different time and it didn't matter. The room was dirty. When I went to pull back the curtains there was food wrappers and the shower curtain had stains on it. I would never stay there again unless there was an entire overhaul. I would not spend another penny there.

This hotel was clean, the beds were comfortable and the starff was very friendly. The location, in terms of proximity to major attractions and dining choices, was excellent. The value was comparable to the room rate.

This hotel needs a complete overhall. The room smelled, and I had to be moved. The rugs in the rooms and hallway are dirty and disgusting. The lighting needs to be updated, and the cleaners need to do a better job.

We are sorry to hear that we were not able to exceed your expectations. The hotel actually replaced all hallway carpeting in March of this year as well as 50% of the hotel rooms. Thank you for your review, once again we are sorry for the inconvienances you experienced during your stay.

We spent 4 Days in Charleston, SC just to see the town, architecture and Fort Sumter. My wife found shopping great and purchased many items from many different shops. We dinner at wonderful resturants, most of them near the King Charles Inn. We will be returning again some day and will stay at the BW King Charles Hotel.

Very clean, large breakfast offerings, great staff, perfect pool and hot tub...a great stay! It was also very quiet, in spite of whatever was going on in the hall or room nearby. It was very close to Colonial Williamsburg and places to eat.

We have stayed several times at this hotel and always have a nice stay but this was by far the best! We arrived the same day and received a great room and rate. Alexis was very friendly and helpful; she knew what I needed before I asked! The breakfast staff was amazing. They did a great job keeping everything filled and cleaned; even on a Saturday morning! We will definitely be back soon!

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. The pool was perfect, as was the hot tub. The room was modernized, and was clean. Housekeeping was on the ball. I requested an end unit, top floor, and got it! When family stopped by to swim there was no issue. Afterwards, embarrassingly enough, my niece's diaper leaked a little on our bedding. I cleaned it the best I could, ran it to the front desk, where I expected to be treated rudely, as even I was embarrassed and a bit upset it happened. However the staff was very friendly, ran me clean sheets, and nothing else was said. After we left we were emailed by the manager with an awesome discount rate to return again. Now I call that exceptional service.
