Great Choice
Reviewed 3 days ago

Inn is well located for walking around the city. Staff is very professional and friendly. Inn has some wear to it but still in great shape. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast is very tasty. Overall, Inn is a great choice for a visit to Charleston.

The hotel looks good from the outside and is well located at the heart of Charlestown historic district. Parking is easy and close to the hotel. Free cheese is a nice idea ( though people flock a bit like seagulls to grab it!) . So.... the management of the hotel is disappointing. Why? It’s all a bit slapdash and not efficient . Example: our booking for a family of four was a king room with one bed . Whilst it may not have been the hotels fault, the prevarication over what they could do seemed interminable and ranged from ‘ nope we can’t do anything’ to ‘ well one night in this room, another night in that room then back to the first room ‘to a promise of a suite ( quickly rescinded) then - finally after us politely saying that we didn’t want to move three nights in a row, the sane room for three nights. Hmmmm. Example two : we were up late 9:30am the next day. Housekeeping passed us by. We left at 10 thinking that the room would be made up by the time we returned. It wasn’t . We asked for this to be done whilst we went out again. It wasn’t . We asked again. This time the wet towels were replaced by dry ones but nothing else done. I asked for the room to be made up. Nothing happened until I asked for a fourth time. Each time the staff were polite, apologetic and attentive . My point is that the systemic inefficiency is a) frustrating b) poor service for a hotel which charged me $1500 for three nights c) leaves a poor impression despite kind staff.
It just needs decent management systems!

If location is what you are looking for than the King Charles inn is for you. If you are looking for a luxury hotel look elsewhere. The hotel is expensive, I’m guessing because of its location. Room didn’t live up to our expectations. Bathroom wasn’t stocked, no shampoo or soap when we checked in. Paint Is peeling off of the walls and ceiling. Tub took forever to drain. It’s almost 3 and they still haven’t cleaned our room. Honestly looks like a motel that was retro fitted 10-15 years ago. Staff is friendly enough but we were disappointed. We recently spent three nights in Times Square and paid less for two rooms than we did for one at the King Charles Inn. Just disappointed.

Absolutely Recommend!

I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised! The location was perfect, restaurants close by and short walk to historic district. We were pleased with our room-clean, plenty of towels and even a mini fridge. We enjoyed the common areas to rest a bit-covered patio by pool or a couple indoor areas with plenty of seating. The breakfast, happy hour cheese/crackers and evening cookies were all done nicely. (Breakfast is additional charge). Would recommend this property-loved the free covered parking and update design/decor of hotel!

Our first visit to Charleston. Loved being in the historic district. Walking the area was easy. Small and cozy hotel, and quiet in the halls and in the room. Breakfast offering slim but tasty. Staff welcoming and helpful. Definitely recommend this hotel.
