King Charles Inn, Charleston
Great location with excellent restaurants within easy walk. The room was ok although the bath was very small. The room is in need of an update as it appeared a bit tired. The view we had was of an alley with parking and dumpster (which I assume was for room updates). Free parking was a big plus.

Great local hotel
The staff could not have been nicer... breakfast was a bargain and afternoon cheese and crackers and evening cookies and tea are great touches... The rooms are a little small and the walls a bit thin but I would recommend the King Charles for families!

The best place to stay in Downtown Charleston
We are frequent travelers to Charleston and as always were very satisfied with our recent stay at KCI. Easy check-in, quiet, clean, comfortable and convenient to Downtown Charleston. The included parking is a great bonus.
