Congratulations Johnny!

We were just talking this week about Johnny and wondering if he was still there. We have been staying at the King Charles Inn for years and years and sometimes several weeks of the year. Johnny is always one of our greatest blessings. We are getting ready to book again for April and are looking forward to seeing him again.

It would not be the same without Johnny. He is truly the greatest asset of King Charles Inn. Looking forward to seeing you again very soon.

God Bless you Johnny and your family.

Our heartfelt congratulations go out to Johnny Middleton for his prestigious award. We can attest to the fact that Johnny is truly an asset to the King Charles Inn and all should be extremely proud of him.

We have been coming to the Inn for many years; mostly during the first week in December, but also at other times during the year. Sometimes we are joined by other family members who decide to spend a few days at the Inn. They are always happy with the accommodations. When we arrive, as soon as we first see Johnny, we are always greeted with a big smile and hugs. He makes us feel right at home at the Inn and helps make our stay very pleasant. He is certainly an integral part of the King Charles Inn family.

Congratulations Johnny,

My husband and I stayed at the King Charles Inn in March 2014, and it was a perfect location and place to be in Charleston.  Of all the people we met there, though, Johnny stands out in our memories — for his smile, his welcoming words, and his readiness to be helpful to all, which we observed, benefited from, and appreciated.

Congratulations indeed, Johnny.  A well-deserved recognition.

Congratulations Johnny!

This is a much deserved award.  I remember my first day working at King Charles Inn, he went above and beyond to welcome me and make me feel like part of the team.  Johnny always has a huge smile on his face and a great attitude.  No matter if a guest, the front desk, housekeeping, or the breakfast room needed something Johnny was always there to lend a helping hand.

Fun fact: The carpet behind the front desk might be the most vacuumed carpet in Charleston thanks to Johnny.

It has been almost a year since we stayed with you and we still remember so well Mr. Middleton’s helpfulness and kindness during our week’s stay. How wonderful that he has been recognized in this way.
