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...

I am just about to check out of the lovely historic King's Courtyard. As a solo traveler, I appreciated being in walking distance of everything downtown. I had the advantage of staying in two different rooms as I decided to stay an extra night. The rooms are beautifully decorated with period pieces and deep south decor. Hardwood floors and high...

I was in charleston for a job interview and stayed at another hotel the night before, my interviewers put me here the second night and I wish I had cancelled my other reservation and stayed here the whole time. Really a nice little place, located on lower king close to the battery. Everything is walking distance and the price is... More

I've been to Charleston many times over the past few years and our son hopes to go to the College of Charleston, The location was ideal and the accommodations were perfect. We had 2 adjoining rooms with separately by a hallway and each with a private bath - perfect for a teen traveling with his mom!

We are older and well traveled. The little hotel in Charleston was perfect for us. Really nice staff, great breakfast and wonderful location. Even though we were on central King St noise was not a problem. We will go back and plan far enough ahead to stay there again. Thanks. FEC

The Kings Courtyard Inn is a step back into Charleston in its hey day. Beautiful decore, open courtyard with large windows from our room to enjoy the view. Great parking privileges in a lot where there was always spaces right behind the inn; we were welcome to check out and leave our car for one more stroll down King Street.... More

This location is at the heart of the Charleston Historical District. Practically everything is within walking distance. Why did I choose this hotel? 1. Location - easy in, and out. Trolly rolls right by the place. On the main street King street. 2. Old world flavor or charm. This is one of the charming inns, inn. Of course I could... More
