“Helpful front desk service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

Front desk staff was great. Very helpful on suggestions. I was there early and was pleased with service. Getting to parking area was confusing. But glad to have a place to park. Parking was tight. Glad my vehicle was not any larger. Rooms had good furnishings. Was very expensive but it is in a very touristy area.

The hotel is right in the middle of it all; easy walk to everywhere in Charleston. Next door to a great restaurant (Jestines), on the main street to everything. Nice little pool on a second floor in/outdoor balcony. The hotel staff were all real nice and accomodating. Highly recommended! The parking was a bit tight, but expected in a hotel right downtown.

Just returned from Charleston where we stayed at the King Charles Best Western on Meeting Street. Our room was cruise-size but clean & service great. The best part of this hotel is the location, right in the heart of the historic district. I can't comment on the value because we were there during the busiest weekend in Charleston--the Cooper River Bridge Run, so we paid top dollar for the last room in the house. Their low country buffet was very standard & I wouldn't advise eating breakfast there.

We spent two nights here and could not of been happier. We arrived in the morning and they went out of their way to get our room ready for us. It's in an ideal spot we walked everywhere while we visited Charleston's Historic distric.
The staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The room was abit on the small size had a large bathroom, safe in the room and free Wi-Fi. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable with huge pillows. We had their hot breakfast which was an extra charge and was pretty good. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the King Charles Best Western Inn.

I grew up SOB and now live in TN. I always recommend King Charles Inn as the ideal place to stay. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate guests and assist in making their stay memorable in the best way. The Inn is located in the heart of the historic district; park your car in the garage(complementary) and step out and you are in the midst of the most glorious city in America. You'll not match King Charles Inn, especially for the price AND parking

Our location and especially the Free Parking cannot be matched in downtown Charleston! The King Charles Inn is only one of two hotels downtown that offer this free service! Thank you for the nice compliments!
