The only reason not a 5 star was the neighborhood, which was kind of yucky, not dangerous or anything, but not historic too. The house was original and historic. The rooms were wonderfully decorated and each unique. Some rooms at 4 floors up but 2 at ground level. The owners very helpful and gregarious, suggesting lots of good places to... More

We liked our stay. It is about a 90 second walk to King Street, which we loved, because of all the shops and eateries. Also, it's only a couple blocks from the Sat. morning farmers market, which is a misnomer because there is a lot more there than produce-fun! Also, we drove to the Battery in 5 min, could have...

Stayed one night in early Dec. Overall great experience. Great location in Charleston, very clean, very friendly staff, good breakfast. Not a gourmet b&b breakfast but a good hot breakfast with a variety of choices. Very small dining area as mentioned by other reviewers but it was nice and we sat outside. Not much to be done about tight space... More

My wife and I have stayed at the inn for probably 12 years running. Always great service and wonderful hospitality. Great location. You can park your car and not have to get in it again until it's time to leave. Terry also gives you great tips on where to shop and eat. We'll always go back!

The location was amazing and Terry was fantastic! He really makes you feel at home and takes time to be sure you have everything you need - from carrying luggage up to the top floor, to being willing to cook more food beyond breakfast time to be sure you are ready for the day! Also, I stayed in the room... More

We really enjoyed our stay in early November this year. Charlene made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. She was a mine of information and this helped us to make the most of our limited time in Charleston. Room 1A (?) was very comfortable and 'olde worlde' although rather public adjacent to the main street at ground... More

This was our first stay at a B&B...and it was wonderful! Terry and Debbie are so personable and down to Earth! We stayed in the front room on the first by the street (this was the only room left because we only booked 2 days before we got here)... We thought that the noise would be an issue, but we... More

I love visiting Charleston during the holidays, and staying at King George is the icing on the gingerbread house. Debra and Terry always go the extra mile to make you feel at home; especially during the holidays. It’s like visiting family, but better. Debra has started decorating every room, hanging Christmas stockings from all of the mantles, hanging garland from... More

Recently I have been traveling to Charleston quite a bit and have very much enjoyed the Inn at King George IV. The generous owners and staff are wonderful hosts, the rooms are cheerful and clean and the breakfasts are delicious. In addition the location can't be beat; just steps from great restaurants, shopping and the lively King Street scene. The... More

My friends totally loved this place when they stayed last summer, I'm still recovering from a sleepless night in the front room. Between loud, inconsiderate late and early neighbors above and next door with paper thin walls, road noise all night, the High School Gym next door hosting a basketball game immediately outside my window, and 20 guests in a...

“The Inn is located in the heart of the University of Charleston campus so expect noise and sandwich shops. Fine dining is downtown.”
