Loved the whole courtyard theme and that each room has an outdoor entry. Our double room was spacious and looked out on King Street. The complementary breakfast and evening wine reception... More

I got everything I wanted and more! Everything from the staff to the atmosphere exceeded my expectations. I have never had a more amazing trip! The many courtyards in... More

The positives: The location was excellent, 10 minute walking distance to almost anything downtown. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean. We received a complimentary USA Today paper at our door. We are not alcohol drinkers but the cheese and lemonade in the evening was tasty. The negatives: Mosquitos were all over the courtyards, and we're bitten many times... More

I stayed at the Kings Courtyard Inn with my boyfriend for three nights in August. This pre-Civil War hotel was charming and sweet. The staff is so friendly (we loved Anthony!) and the small touches were great. We stayed in a Courtyard King room--king bed, small flat screen tv, big armoire, mini-fridge. This room type only has spacious shower stalls... More

My mom and I found this hotel via Travelzoo for our recent trip to Charleston. For the price through Travelzoo, it was a great deal. The hotel was located right on King Street, in the center of shopping and dining options. Parking was directly behind the hotel. The rooms and grounds were very clean and well maintained.
