Unfortunately we had rain for our entire visit. Best I could say is it is an average hotel at best. I certainly do not recommend for folks who have difficulty with stairs as everywhere you go you have to go up or down stairs.

I am truly sorry about the bad weather while you were with us. Maybe you will just have to return again! Also, please know we do have two elevators throughout the hotel both to the Lobby and the Guest rooms. Thank you.

We stay at this hotel often for business and are never disappointed. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location downtown makes it easy to walk to great restaurants and shopping after a long day at work.

OK, it's basically a Best Western, but what you want is the location and the awesome parking. We never had trouble finding a spot, and there's no need to call ahead to take your car out (in that, of course, it is just like a motel). The location is superb for checking out historic Charleston, and the plantations are an...

Boutique style. Quiet,comfortable. No more than short walk to attractions. TV and wi-fi were excellent. Easy in and out free parking is a big benefit. Staff was eager to help.Only downside for me was my pillow was softer than I am used to.

In 80 years of travel, I have found very few hotels as wonderful to be in as the King Charles Inn. In every way it was perfect: the staff, the rooms, the location, the marvelous pub that beckoned every evening after a day of investigating such a beautiful city. I can't imaging staying at any other hotel. This is the...

Conveniently located to historic district and shopping areas; well maintained, clean rooms, and cafe available. Free parking was a definite plus, as parking in the area is sparse. The front desk staff were very helpful with suggestions on dining and sightseeing. Would definitely return.

Everything about this property was very nice: service, room style, and location. I stayed 2 nights during a conference and would certainly return. As well, two of colleagues stayed and very much enjoyed the experience.
