“Fabulous Day being tourist in our own town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2010

Our stay was exceptional. We arrived early and were greeted at the front desk with enthusiasm. Our room wasn't ready which was fine we were just going exploring and just parked at the hotel. It is the perfect location to everything downtown. The front desk attendant called when the room was ready and we went back and cooled off for a while before we headed back out again. The room was beautiful and the beds were extremely comfortable. Everyone was extremely friendly from the General Manager, front desk staff, to the bartender. It's a small quaint hotel with beautiful updated rooms and fabulous location. We loved our stay and would definately stay again. Thank you King Charles.

We are in Charleston quite often and have stayed at many Inns and B&Bs.

This was our 3rd stay at King Charles Inn in Charleston. Each time we were made to feel welcome and staff is eager to please. The rooms have been spacious, bright and clean.
The location is great...we walk everywhere.

Parking is rather difficult at check in time so get there either before or an hour or so after to avoid the complications. If you go through the parking garage and there isn't a space you will have to go through the lot and back through a series of one way streets to pass through it again. My mother thought that the jazz music by the pool was a little loud, but I feel certain they would have turned it down had we asked. Everyone was very polite and we would certainly stay again. Our view was over the parking lot, but we found this to be the quietest part of the hotel so we liked it. Excellent bathroom.

Very lovely hotel, with very helpful staff. The beds were soft and the pillows feather. The AC was cold and the room was quiet. Since the hotel was centrally located to all the great restaurants and markets, we never had to get into the car. They have parking for your car which was an advantage since the city has limited parking and it's expensive. It's a great value and we would definitely stay there again.

Parking can be a challenge on the peninsula, so this location is great, you can leave your car and walk all over, or take a bus. The hotel, is clean, comfortable and has a friendly staff.
