Took advantage of valued pricing and enjoyed the ambiance of a historic hotel with modern bath facilities. The amenities of wine and cheese along with a nice continental breakfast made stay most enjoyable. Being in center of downtown is a plus. Only downside is limited parking in back of hotel at 12 USD per day. Convenient to all downtown things... More

My sister and I recently spent 4 days at Kings Courtyard. It is a very pleasant inn, located on King Street and within walking distance to the Charleston Market. The furnishings are tastefully done. The staff is courteous and very, very helpful. The rooms are pleasantly and tastefully furnished, clean and neat. I love the entrance which reminds one of... More

My wife and I chose the Kings Courtyard Inn because of its central location in historic Charleston, SC, and because of an online special rate. When we walked through the door, it was like going back in time. The Blum Building housing the inn was built in 1853, designed in the Greek Revival style. Over the years it housed various... More

Recently spent two nights at the Kings Courtyard Inn. It is a very nice older property. The bathrooms are very modern and the bed was very comfortable. All the employees we encountered were outstanding. James at the desk in the evenings was very personable and very helpful. We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to our friends. The...

This hotel is historic and right next to the Market Place and restaurants. Easy to see all of the battery and historic homes of Charleston. Service was great along with a very comfortable room over looking the Market Place.

Great location on King Street - park and walk everywhere. Walking out of parking lot, look right and you can see the entrance to the Market. You pay for parking downtown, so we didn't mind the $12 that I think we paid; you can come and go, but really, no need to drive anywhere. the Inn's breakfast is part of... More

We stayed in the Kings Courtyard Inn for 3 nights on a recent trip to this part of the country and we had a great time. The location is perfect and the Inn is one of those great old hotels with some wrinkles, but lots of personality. You can park your car and walk to everywhere you wish to see... More

We enjoyed everything from the welcome Happy Hour to our late checkout. I wanted to show my wife this lovely city and this was a great home base to call home. We were welcomed by a nice wine and cheese happy hour and a small but clean and comfortable room. The staff helped us with many choices and the parking.... More

This is a GREAT hotel. There was a great breakfast and free wine tasting each day. It was very close to everything we needed and the folks helped make reservations and directed us to various activities.

We were traveling with a small, well behaved dog and booked this property because they accepted pets and the reviews are good on tripadvisor. Because we were traveling with a dog, they placed us in a courtyard room and informed us nothing else was available. The room was small, dark and in terrible condition. The walls and woodwork were damaged... More
