King Charles Inn, Charleston
The hotel was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and you could walk to shopping restaurants, and site seeing. It was definitely worth the price to stay at this wonderful hotel in the perfect location.

Great Staff
My trip was great! One of the most comfortable beds ever! Q, at front desk was fabulous! Johnnie , porter-doorman was excellent! I can't wait for my next trip to Charleston!

King Charles Inn, Charleston
Perfect location and onsite parking
Anniversary weekend. Friendly staff. Sweet Tea and Cookies each night - can’t beat that. Parking downtown is very limited, so GREAT LOCATION + FREE ONSITE PARKING equals a major win. Park at check-in and walk almost everywhere. Like all historic downtown hotels, the standard room is cozy, but well appointed. We’ll definitely be back.
