During my stay there, I was impressed by how helpful and kind the staff and owner of this place were. I enjoyed the breakfast every morning that includes sausages, bacon, grits (yum), muffins, fruits etc. Throughout the day, we were also provided with assorted cookies and a variety of snacks and drinks. I stayed in 1A for 1 night and...

The only reason not a 5 star was the neighborhood, which was kind of yucky, not dangerous or anything, but not historic too. The house was original and historic. The rooms were wonderfully decorated and each unique. Some rooms at 4 floors up but 2 at ground level. The owners very helpful and gregarious, suggesting lots of good places to...

We liked our stay. It is about a 90 second walk to King Street, which we loved, because of all the shops and eateries. Also, it's only a couple blocks from the Sat. morning farmers market, which is a misnomer because there is a lot more there than produce-fun! Also, we drove to the Battery in 5 min, could have...

My wife and I have stayed at the inn for probably 12 years running. Always great service and wonderful hospitality. Great location. You can park your car and not have to get in it again until it's time to leave. Terry also gives you great tips on where to shop and eat. We'll always go back!

The location was amazing and Terry was fantastic! He really makes you feel at home and takes time to be sure you have everything you need - from carrying luggage up to the top floor, to being willing to cook more food beyond breakfast time to be sure you are ready for the day! Also, I stayed in the room...

We really enjoyed our stay in early November this year. Charlene made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. She was a mine of information and this helped us to make the most of our limited time in Charleston. Room 1A (?) was very comfortable and 'olde worlde' although rather public adjacent to the main street at ground...

This was our first stay at a B&B...and it was wonderful! Terry and Debbie are so personable and down to Earth!

I love visiting Charleston during the holidays, and staying at King George is the icing on the gingerbread house. Debra and Terry always go the extra mile to make you feel at home; especially during the holidays. It’s like visiting family, but better. Debra has started decorating every room, hanging Christmas stockings from all of the mantles, hanging garland from...
