The King Charles Inn is a older well maintained property in a very convenient location in historic Charleston. The College of Charleston is located one block from the hotel. The center of the historic district is an easy walk. The hotel is not inexpensive ($300/night), but is so are most hotels in this area. The staff is very friendly. Wifi...

Stayed here for just one night before my wife and I left on a cruise the following day. Firstly, the location was perfect. It was located one block from king street and roughly two blocks from meeting street. This is where everything is in the city. The hotel itself was cute and clean and the staff was extremely accommodating and...

Really great location in historic Charleston. Free on site parking!!!! Clean, comfortable rooms. Nice pool area and pub. The rates were more reasonable then one might expect in this historic district. But it was the staff that deserves the most kudos. Every staff member we encountered in our three day visit was friendly, kind and efficient (especially Joey at the...

My best friend and I chose the King Charles Inn for its location and loved it. Because I cannot walk long distances, I needed a location close to all the things we wanted to do. In addition, the historic district's free bus system stops just outside. We checked in on a Monday in time for the complimentary cheese and olives....

This hotel is practical, clean, very pleasant with nice interiors. Service was friendly and efficient. Some of the front desk staff were more experienced than others. The bar/restaurant is convenient and nice. Some of the wait staff there are not very attentive. Overall the room was large, clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed.

Great hotel within walking distance of historic district and a number of great restaurants. Happy hour every afternoon with fruit and cheese and desert and coffee/tea later in the evening is a nice touch. Covered parking included behind the hotel is very convenient as you don't have to deal with valet or finding a spot to park which can be...

My friend and I spent a night at the King Charles Inn while in town for the Home & Garden Tour. I'm going to jump to discussing the room so I can move on to the great things about the hotel. We had a two-queen room overlooking Hassell with a partial view down Meeting Street, very nice. Or it would...

My friend & I stayed at the King Charles Inn for our recent visit to the Charleston area. From before our check-in (a mix-up w/ reservations) to the time of check-out, the staff has been courteous, helpful, & extremely honest when asked for their recommendations. We would definitely stay here again! Convenient location! I would especially like to thank Joey,...

Excellent hotel, very friendly staff, large comfortable room. Staff located a lost item and returned it to our room before we knew it was missing! Roof deck pool and bar open for breakfast and afternoon drinks.
