The hotel is very clean and well-kept. The location is excellent and within walking distance of great restaurants and the main attractions of the historic area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We chose this hotel because of its location near College of Charleston and its reasonable price. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel itself was very clean, and the free parking was definitely a plus in the Downtown Charleston area. It was just a few blocks and an easy walk to the College of Charleston and right around...

Pros: Every staff member is professional, pleasant and customer service at its best. The hotel room was very nice and comfortable. The location is in walking distance to the market and about 10 minutes via pedi-cab (which is very reasonable) to north King street where there are too many restaurants, clubs and bars to count. Great time! Loved Charleston! Cons:...

Location couldn't have been better, staff was extremely helpful, rooms were very clean although they are on the small side but we were not in our room much anyway. Great happy hour every night. Delicious breakfast. would highly recommend.

The King Charles Inn is a charming boutique property designed in the southern Low Country style that Charleston is known. The hotel is located at 237 Meeting Street, one block from Charleston Place and King Street, the epicenter of Charleston shopping. If you want to be in-the-heart of everything Charleston has to offer, this is a fantastic location. In addition...

We stayed here 2 nights recently and it is a great location central to almost everything. The staff was a delight, as was the bartender in the pub. There's a pool and plenty of nice comfy seating. I'd stay here again.

We just returned from Charleston and chose the King Charles this time around based on both limited availability this busy Easter/Spring Break and TripAdvisor reviews. The King Charles is attempting to showcase themselves as a four star boutique hotel when really they are just an average hotel with a very classy exterior in a fabulous location. Very impressive upon entering...

The hotel is very well appointed and well maintained. Staff are friendly, helpful, and very willing to offer tips for dining, activities, etc. The location of the hotel is perfect.
