    Location is good with everything in downtown within walking distance. Staff was friendly.

    Rooms aren’t that nice. Bad paint job in the bathroom and peeling paint on the bath ceiling. No bathroom exhaust fan and climate control unit in the room is weak.

    I have stayed at the King Charles on many occasions and have always had a wonderful experience. The location is perfect, the rooms are lovely and the staff is always welcoming and helpful.

About

Overview

The King Charles Inn is located in Charleston’s Historic District and dates back to the early 19th century. Originally the home of the Pavilion Hotel, this hotel hosted Edgar Allen Poe when he served as a soldier at Fort Moultrie nearby. The King Charles Inn was built in the same space in 1958 and has a rich history in a beautiful part of South Carolina.

Parking is entirely free for guests at the King Charles Inn, as is high-speed Wi-Fi, coffee during breakfast, tea and cookie service at night, and passes to Pivotal Fitness. It also hosts an evening reception featuring artisan cheeses and other accompaniments. There is an outdoor pool with a sundeck and terrace, along with a business center, and concierge services.

Each room is beautifully appointed, and guests can choose from a traditional double bed room, traditional queen, traditional king, and a deluxe king room. The hotel also offers king junior suites as well as two-double bed rooms for those who need the extra space. Inside the rooms, you can expect a large LCD television, Keurig coffeemaker, coffee pods, iron, hairdryer, and a mini refrigerator. Guests also have access to bottled water, an iHome iPod, and an iPhone docking station.

Guests don’t need to leave this majestic space to enjoy great Charleston dining as BREW Pub and Café is on-site. This café offers a hearty breakfast with items like chocolate croissants, homemade quiches, and egg sandwiches. Later in the day, guests can sample locally crafted wine, beer, and spirits while enjoying terrace seating overlooking the pool.
