We stayed at the King Charles Inn for a recent vacation to Charleston. The location is great with easy walking distance to the battery and the market. The decor is beautiful and the staff are mostly pleasant. There are some details that seem overlooked by Housekeeping but all in all it is a nice property that I would use again.

Within walking distance to everything. Complimentary on site parking, since parking is a major issue in Charleston. Check in smooth and easy. Front desk always very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay.

I have stayed here at least 5 times over the past 4 years. I keep discovering more reasons to love this hotel. This time I really enjoyed the outdoor patio space for my morning coffee and then breakfast the next day. Professional staff yet friendly. This hotel has an ideal location in the historic district with free parking - yes...

Perfectly located - a short walk to the best shops & restaurants. The staff (especially Joey at the front desk!) were exceptionally helpful, friendly, and made for great local resources for recommendations. Our favorite part was the pool & happy hour. We would lay around the pool, then grab happy hour priced drinks from the bar, and enjoy a complimentary...

This was my first time visiting Charleston and picking a hotel was difficult - and they were all expensive. The King Charles actually beat the Hampton Inn on price (with a AAA discount!) and the location was better. The room was very spacious and clean and the free parking was an added perk! Everyone we had contact with was pleasant...

Step into luxury with this magnificent hotel in the center of it all. This hotel is absolutely spotless and really quiet at night. Don't use valet parking because the parking deck is right beside you and is really easy to get in and out. The staff are incredible and this hotel is darn close to perfection.

Located at Wentworth and Meeting Streets, this lovely inn is ideally located to walk to most restaurants and sites. A HUGE plus for this hotel is that there is ample, free parking! For Charleston, where parking on the street is nearly impossible and parking lots are usually full OR expensive, this is a great benefit. I believe they are the...

The best feature of this hotel is its convenient location on Meeting Street, close to everything you'd want to see in Charleston. Our room faced the back and was very quiet.
