We enjoyed our stay a lot. Never took the car, since their location cannot be better. Beautiful rooms well priced. Spoiler alert: undergoing big construction right besides them. Expect noise for a year. Now, blah to complete 200 characters.

Stayed: June 2014

This was a very nice hotel for a one night stay while visiting the south. Parking on site included with your stay, great central location and a nice happy hour with half price drinks and complimentary cheese board. Rooms were very clean but quite small, not an issue for us since we were there just for one night and did not spend much time in the room during the day. There is a construction going on next door, but did not affect us since our stay was over the weekend. Very friendly staff, they offered us umbrellas since it was raining. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Located conveniently on Meeting Street this Inn offers old Charleston charm. The rooms are lovely, very clean, comfortable and quiet. You can enjoy breakfast in the hotel at the Brew, take a swim in the outdoor pool or step out the front door and be w/in walking distance to most anything you want to do in central Charleston. You will be delighted by the close proximity to the historic district and the old City Market. Treat yourself ... when in Charleston stay at the King Charles and live the charmed life of old Charleston.
Plus there is FREE off-street parking!

Room Tip: Had a room on the 2nd floor on the Hasell Street side ... it was very quiet.

I cannot say enough about the King Charles Inn. The rooms are clean. Comfortable bed and pillows. Very spacious bathroom and awesome thick towels. Location is perfect as you can park free in their parking garage and walk to the market, waterfront, restaurants, clubs, Rainbow Row and Battery Park. If you don't want to walk, the trolley pick up is right across the street. Very friendly and helpful staff. We loved Happy hour by the pool and meeting the Manager and Assistant Manager (never had that experience before when lodging). I am probably leaving some things out, but this is a must stay when in the area. Stayed here 2 times and looking forward to coming back.

We were very pleased with both the location of the King Charles and the quality of our experience. Our third floor room faced a quiet side street, so construction noise not a problem. We had a queen room and the bed was covered with lovely pillows and linens, but the room was teeny tiny - just barely enough room to walk around the bed. The room was furnished nicely so you felt kind of tucked up in an attic room somewhere, although I noticed the King rooms were quite roomy. The room safe is enormous, you can actually fit a full laptop plus lots of other stuff inside. There's free parking - awesome, you're a stroll away from shops, restaurants, the market and the park, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The pool is a nice little dip pool and we had a relaxing breakfast in the poolside patio area lulled by a splashing fountain. I must agree with the comment that the common areas were FREEZING - I could barely walk through them let alone sit and relax in one of the nicely appointed conversation areas. We are not polar bears - we get sick when the air is ridiculously cold! Other than that...a lovely stay.
