Spent one night in Charleston this February and chose King Charles for location, free parking and reasonable room rate. Not dissapointed at all but the construction/renovation prevented higher rating. Only one working elevator made getting around a bit of a challenge navigating a labrynth of hallways. Beautiful King room which was nicely appointed. Our travel partners recieved an upgrade as...

Very Nice stay and convenient to everything. We never drove our car once we parked. I would recommend and stay here again. I took the Girls for Spring Break and they were very pleased with the Hotel I had chosen for us to stay at. Very Nice Staff and helpful at all times.

We stayed there for a friend's destination wedding. Great staff up front. Great location downtown. Highly recommend for everyone visiting Charleston. Fairly expensive because there was a wine and cheese event going on. Still suggest for anyone in the area.

This hotel was the best we had stayed in during our entire month long trip. Hotel personel were great and the location was perfect for walking to all the local sites and resturants. The bar area was next to the pool and provided poolside service.

It was so easy to find, easy to unload, easy to park, easy to love the incredibly warm and helpful staff, and easy to love the inside decor of the place.

This hotel is in a perfect location. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and site seeing all of the history of the city of Charleston. The accommodations were very comfortable and updated while in keeping with the history and charm of the city. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly.

Our early March stay was all we hoped it could be as we explored historic Charleston. The location and quality of this hotel were perfect. We were also lucky enough to get a free upgrade. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Despite coming during inclement weather and with the inn undergoing some renovations, my wife and I loved our accommodations and the staff were excellent. Thank you and hope to come back when the weather is a little more cooperative.
