This will be the 12th year in a row my wife and I will be staying at the King Charles Hotel. Very simply put, the reason why is comfort. My wife is comfortable here. I am comfortable here. We feel valued and safe. We can RELAX on vacation. As you probably have read from the numerous other reviews, this place is beyond clean, so if you have any post-COVID concerns, stay here and don't worry about it. We have never had an experience at any other hotel like we have had here. The owner takes pride in her establishment and in her guests enjoyment while on vacation. She always has a smile on her face and engages her guests as they come and go. She seems to have first hand knowledge of everything in OCMD, from restaurants and shopping to where the fish are biting! She is also extremely flexible with arrangements. One year we didn't get there until after 11pm and she waited until we got checked in. She has the coffee daily, and the after dinner brownies or cookies which she bakes on site. This also makes them near impossible to ignore as the aroma fills the lobby. ;) This hotel does not have an elevator, or breakfast, or a pool, or a hundred other things that the larger chain hotels may have, but we couldn't care less. The King Charles is affordable, CLEAN, quiet, and in a fantastic location. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this establishment is, it is our home while on vacation. Stay here and find out yourself as the King Charles will become your OCMD place to stay…
We were in a pinch to find a place and found the King Charles at the last minute. Yes, we were concerned. We were incredibly surprised and happy with this place and the staff. The room was good, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The cookies and brownies were YUM! Off street parking was a big bonus.
We recently just stayed here and let me tell you I loved it here! The feel of the hotel was quite homey (the best sleep I’ve gotten on trips), parking is in the back of the hotel (a little cramped but worth it). The owner was very nice and they have overnight security. I would definitely stay here again next time we’re here.
Rooms are reasonable to be a block from the beach.Always clean and owner is very pleasant.Rooms are small however with no kitchen and one dining table near beds.Front porch makes you feel very much at home even though it is on a busy road with constant traffic.Good walking distance to beach and boardwalk if you plan on not driving your car everyday.
We stayed for 3 nights in a queen bed room and were very pleased with this hotel! The staff and owner were extremely nice and helpful. The room was much more spacious than the pictures show. There were individual AC units and a fan in the room which were great for the hot weekend. This hotel is minutes away from the beach and is in a great location with a pizza place right behind the building. We would 100% stay here again.
Found this place last minute for a weekend getaway to the beach. The property was great. One block from the beach, everything was clean and neat and the staff was wonderful. There were fresh cookies and brownies in the lobby every day, which my son loved.
Lovely,Cozy, Hotel located one block from beach and boardwalk. Owner are very nice and accommodating. They bake cookies and brownies on different nights. Coffee and tea is out throughout the day. Plenty of places to eat nearby. My family enjoyed staying here and can't wait to go back.
We were traveling through Ocean City and found this little BnB (minus the breakfast) style hotel, just off the boardwalk row. It is within a short walk to the beach, and some good places to eat. We ended up staying 2 nights before we moved on down the coast. This is not a 4 star hotel, but it was clean and the owner is very nice and helpful. Would stay here again, if in the area!
We are a small family of three and chose to take a quick trip to OC for two nights. After reading previous reviews we chose this hotel. It was wonderful. The stairs are a workout but we earned it by eating and drinking without thought of diet. The room was perfect for meeting the essential needs of cleaning up and sleeping. The other guests seemed very comfortable there relaxing on the provided communal porches. We were happy to leave the car and walk everywhere. I was so excited to be able to walk to Layton’s for breakfast in the morning!! The staff was very friendly and informative. The room we had was either so super quiet of outside noise or we were sleeping like logs, either way it worked for us!
I have never stayed in a hotel as clean as this one. Hubby even checked the ceiling fan and it was spotless! That’s the most important thing for us when staying in a hotel! The place reminded me a lot of my childhood home. Even one better... fresh baked cookies at night.... The only negative was the noisy air conditioner (window unit). Every time the compressor came on it woke us up. Being on the 3rd floor we had to have it on. All in all it was a very good night away. Will definitely return in the future.
