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,...

Perfect staff and beautiful accommodations. A truly wonderful experience from start to finish. Its within walking distance of almost anything you might want to do in downtown. I can't recommend them enough, and if you are in Charleston, SC this is a must.

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.

The King Charles Inn is like home where everyone makes you feel welcomed and both stays here have been very memorable. The rooms are very plush with updated amenities and the bar was a great place to hang out! The inn is within walking distance to restaurant, the market, shopping on King Street, and carriage tours as its central location...

A nice hotel but nothing truly special. Southern charm and hospitality were lacking a little bit. Nice enough room but not spacious or special. Front desk had a few friendly workers and a grumpy few too. The outdoor pool was a nice treat as the weather was amazing. Only food served is breakfast and some cheese and crackers in late...

I appreciate your candid remarks. I apologize for the Front desk response, the reason the rates change is due to the supply and demand in the area. Thank you for sharing and we hope you can return again when visiting Charleston!

The King Charles Inn is a lovely hotel with a lot of character. The room was a bit small, but that's to be expected in a downtown area. It was well appointed, and the bathroom was a good size. They provide complimentary coffee in the morning, and happy hour snacks with drink specials in the evening. The Inn is located...

My wife and I stayed here recently for a college weekend reunion. This appears to be an older building converted to a hotel in the recent past. The location is well suited for the downtown sites and restaurants. Our room on the fourth floor was very spacious. The hotel was nicely decorated.
