Stayed 3 nights in early March. Perfect location within walking distance to everything downtown. Free parking was a huge bonus. Parked the car when we arrived and didn't need it again until we left. Staff was super friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. I found the rooms to be very quiet and comfortable. I've seen other reviews that say no...

We were delighted with our stay at the King Charles Inn. It's in a great location in the heart of all that's Charleston. The hotel staff is outstanding. The pool and outdoor area are very nice. There is no room refrigerator so bring a cooler. There is no room dining service. Love the free parking. The breakfast offerings are heavy...

I chose the King Charles Inn for its location, value, and the terrific reviews on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint! Location was perfect. We walked everywhere. The value was good as Downtown Charleston hotels can be quite expensive. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had them recommend a restaurant for our last night. They made the reservation for...

After having our flight to Charleston cancelled do to bad weather and sent to Savannah instead we rented a car and two hours later arrived at the King Charles Inn. Of course our bags were somewhere else. We left Scottsdale at a balmy 73 degrees and put our jackets in our luggage so the 37 degree temp on arrival left...

This hotel was perfectly located for us! The room was abit small, but more than adequate. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Even The Battery was walkable from here.

Room was small but ok. Bathroom was uncomfortably small. Location is great. Painting & garage construction till 10 PM, made room smelly, noisy, and impossible to sleep. Staff and mgmt. not respectful.

We take our guest comments very seriously and though it pains us to hear your experience wasn't very positive, we see every opportunity as a chance to learn and improve. It sounds like you booked a quaint queen room on this visit; please know we have different room types and sizes of rooms in the future. I certainly apologize for...

The hotel was adequate. I have no major complaints but nothing special to say either. The free parking is the main perk if you have a car and they allow you to stay parked for free up to 4 pm after the 11am check out.

Wonderful large balcony in my King room, over looked the parking.... in fact all the rooms with balconies overlook parking... just parking. Clean, updated, great water pressure in shower. Nice bath products. You might have to walk to get ice. Smoking area in garage can be overpowering.
