Great location. Friendly and attentive service. Room/bathroom a bit on the small side, but very nice and comfortable. Free parking is an enormous perk and they even let you keep your car there until 4pm on the day you check out. Happy hour (with low-priced drinks and free cheese/olives) and free morning coffee are very nice touches too. There is...

This is not a big, flashy hotel. It is small but has been recently updated and has a very attentive staff. The room was very nice. Hotel is located in the heart of Charleston. I would highly recommend the property.

Just returned from a four day stay at the King Charles Inn. The hotel is centrally located--can walk everywhere! Also, a huge plus is the complimentary parking on-site, very handy. The rooms are well equipped, spacious and well decorated. The staff is terrific, very helpful and pleasant. A special thanks to Tom!! Plan to return!

Perfect location is you don't have, or don't want to use a car. Most everything is walking distance or you can take the free bus. Very clean hotel with a wonderful front desk staff. Nice rooms with nice bathrooms. Got a great deal during valentine's day, so we made it a long weekend!

The location is excellent. You can walk to everything. The front desk staff was very helpful, with maps, directions and recommendations. Free parking and a well appointed room make this a great choice for a Charleston hotel.

The King Charles Hotel is very convenient to all good things in The Holy City! The staff is remarkable as well. Parking is free and the Manager's afternoon and after-dinner receptions are above and beyond the fees charged.

I tend to agree, free on-site parking in downtown Charleston is very rare so we are very fortunate to have our own garage! I am happy to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you for sharing with others!

We stayed 4 nights. We had a great experience from the moment Ben took our luggage to our room until we left. Waitresses Paris and Caroline remembered how many coffee refills we liked and bartender Corey was professional and personable. Our room was very well appointed and comfortable. Everyone at the front desk was very knowledgeable about local restaurants and...

My stay at the King Charles Inn is always exceptional. All the staff have excellent customer service skills and always go above and beyond to be helpful. The location could not be any better, just one block from the market and close to many great restaurants. Everything you want is within walking distance.

We stayed 5 nights. On-site parking is included. Others have mentioned that the lot fills up and they have to park in the alternate lot; that happened to us on the the first night but it was not a problem - the alternate lot is directly across the street. The Hotel is nicely located within walking distance of many restaurants...
