Great location, got an old south feel to it but rooms are tired and have an old style forced air system so you have a loud fan to deal with all night long. Parking is very convenient though and the staff are nice. Gives the sense that it has seen better days, owners need to spend some money to upgrade... More

This was our second stay at the KCI in the last two years. The inn is right in the middle of where we want to be - attractions and restaurants. For the most part, we walked to where we wanted to go and just left the car in the parking lot. Breakfast is included. I think there were less breakfast... More

We were so disgusted discovering that beside us and over us were barking dogs. The one next door seemed to bark with every breath. One side of our room with ground floor windows faced a pedestrian pass thru where people walked, talked and laughed into early morning hours. We could not wait to get out of lovely Charleston. The hotel... More

I cannot say enough about Kings Courtyard Inn - from the ease of reservations, to the genuine caring of the staff, to the beauty and comfort of the rooms, to the breakfast and wine tastings, it is simply the best place to stay in Charleston. The rooms are representations of true Lowcountry living but updated with state of the art... More

We originally booked two nights at the Inn and ended up staying another night despite the rain and cold weather. The Inn is well located and within walking distance to many of Charlestons historical sites, great restaurants and live entertainment. The staff in particular, Heather, was most helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit. Highly recommend the Magnolia plantation... More

The location where the King's Courtyard is in is outstanding! The staff and concierge, valued the guests, their morning continental breakfast is served, by the most sensitive and helpful staff. The rooms are cozy, warm in the winter, and their inside gardens are so nice! Their happy hour is very nice and their evening after dinner Sherry is delicious!

My wife and I stayed at the Kings Courtyard for four nights. The hotel is in an excellent location for seeing Charleston. The room was plain but clean. The hotel is within walking distance to most of the Charleston attractions [the market, the battery], shopping and restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay here again. There is a sister property...
