Welcome to the King Charles Inn, ideally located on Meeting Street in the heart of historic Charleston, South Carolina. Our boutique historic Charleston hotel is the only Best Western in downtown Charleston within walking distance from Charleston's finest restaurants and antique shops,and just one block away from the famous Market.

The King Charles Inn is the perfect choice for savvy business and leisure travelers. Our Charleston hotel offers a convenient location, unique surroundings and decor, and provides premium accommodations, generous amenities and gracious hospitality. Stay with us and you'll find that historic Charleston and many of its major attractions are just minutes away. Walk to everything; fine dining, shopping and entertainment.

The history of our Charleston hotel itself comprises a significant part of the area's exciting past. Originally named The Pavilion Hotel (circa 1830), it was the gathering spot of area artists, writers and craftsmen. Edgar Allen Poe chose our historic Charleston inn as his weekly retreat while a soldier stationed at Fort Moultrie. Today The King Charles Inn maintains this significant historical ambiance, while providing its guests with premium services and amenities.

I'm going to keep this short and simple stay at the King Charles Inn in downtown Charleston, SC! Great front office staff with exceptional southern hospitality. A very clean, quaint and historic feel property. As a big chain Hotelier I didn't want to stay anywhere else but a historic property and I was so pleased I made that decision! I will be back 100. Loved it.

Great Location & Friendly Staff

I was upgraded free of charge, which was a pleasant surprise. The staff was always friendly and eager to help. The location was very close to all of the restaurants that we were interested in. Very close to Market & King Street. I will definitely stay there again!

Location, location, location.

This hotel was centrally located to all the things we wanted to see and do. The free trolley was steps from the hotel, and made it easy getting to parts of the historic area that were not as near. We used our car only for places outside the city. The rooms look like they have been recently renovated, and have such touches of luxury. The only complaint is that the noise of the heater turning on during the night was disruptive to my husband, who is sensitive to sounds. It was an enjoyable stay at this hotel, and I would choose it again on a future stay.

Enjoyed Anniversary trip

Hotel is very close to historic area of city! The food was spectacular - Breakfast at Toast's and Barbara Jeans, lunch and dinner at Hyman's, The Pearl, and A W Shuck's. Make sure to visit the Calhoun home and the Nathaniel Russell home with the spiral staircase.

Great Hotel In Great Location

I was pleased to find the hotel to be just as shown and described on the web site. The room was very comfortable and well maintained. It was really quiet for one being in such a busy location. The location of the hotel could not be more convenient; we walked to most every place that we went.

Great location

Well worth paying a little more for the convenience of being right in the center of things with all stops an easy walk from the Inn
