If you want to stay downtown in walking distance from everything, this is the place to stay. The parking is undercover and is included in the price of the room. We found the amenities to be added perks, ie: cookies and tea served in the evening, snacks in the afternoon. There is no restaurant at this hotel but right next door there is a lovely rooftop restaurant and of course you can throw a rock and hit several others. Harrison, the bellhop was very helpful. I would stay here again.

Not comfortable
Reviewed 2 days ago

The location of the hotel is great! The staff of the hotel were also super friendly, nice, and helpful. However, the hotel itself was very uncomfortable. We had one sink in our room which was extremely small (not big enough to rest even a hairdryer), so my wife and I could not get ready at the same time in the morning. The room also had a silverfish problem (we counted 4 silverfish in the bathroom and a couple in the bedroom over our 2 or 3 night stay). Worst of all, the mattress was busted and the bed kept getting unmade in the middle of the night. We got sick of remaking the bed every hour or two, so we ended up sleeping on the dirty mattress for 2 out of 3 of our nights. The mattress was ripped and very worn, causing the sheets to pop off of it. We have stayed at many places in Charleston, and while this hotel has a great location, it was very uncomfortable staying there, especially for the price. Cannot recommend.

A Memorable Stay In the Historic District
Reviewed 3 days ago

My stay at the King Charles Inn was very pleasing. The staff treated me at all times like I was a wanted and welcomed guest, helping me with directions to local businesses and attractions. The room was on the small side, but clean and very well furnished with a very comfortable bed, classy furniture and fixtures, and a modern brand name flat screen TV. A classic yet modern feel at the same time. Plenty of outlets to charge any sort of device, and excellent free wi-fi service. Overall the quality of the room and service was excellent, but most importantly the location in Charleston was just about perfect. I parked my car ( free parking as well! ) and didn't get back in until I checked out, with many of Charlestons famous neighborhoods within a 10 to 20 minute walk. I would most certainly consider staying at this hotel again when I visit Charleston in the future.

Very Nice Hotel Unusual Multilevel Access
Reviewed 4 days ago

The room was very comfortable and well appointed. However, because we had a deluxe room on the 4th floor, the only direct elevator access was using an elevator at the far end of the parking garage. The regular elevators let you out one level above the front desk and access to the street so you have to negotiate a set of stairs to get our. They do have off-street parking which is very useful in an old city like Charleston..

Fabulous hotel walking distance to downtown! Had to cancel because of Hurricane Florence initially. They kindly pushed our reservation and my birthday celebration out three weeks..... to Hurricane Michael! Fortunately, we made it in and loved Charleston and the King Charles Inn.
