We stayed at the Kings Courtyard Inn during our trip to Charleston, SC. The hotel was very nice, and the location was excellent. This is a historic property, but the rooms had been updated and were very comfortable. The continental breakfast was very good as well. We especially enjoyed the wine and cheese tasting in the evenings. They have onsite... More

En route to our planned vacation location, we decided to detour through Charleston for a night since we'd never been and stayed at Kings Courtyard Inn. We were pleasantly surprised as we had really only focused on availability, location and price when choosing it since it was just a night. Location was great - we walked to the waterfront, market,...

Due to the nature of my work I travel all the time and this was my first trip to Charleston. I wasn't too sure of this hotel I just know that it's very historic and has been around for a very long time and the reviews seemed promising. I checked in on Monday midmorning and had a pleasant conversation with... More

Friendly Quaint Inn, bit of a Hacienda feel with the center courtyard. Staff very friendly & helpful, 5pm wine & cheese was a nice touch each evening. We had a beautiful suite with huge four poster bed that was so comfy, best sleep I have ever had. The suite was fulled with beautiful antiques. Walking distance to all the restaurants.... More

Easy walking distance to Charleston attractions. Had room 214-canopied king and nice shower. Faces the street, light was a bit of a bother even with blinds and curtains closed. Some face courtyard which might be better. Continental breakfast and very nice wine/cheese hour from 5-6. Staff friendly and helpful .

My wife and I spent recently a week at the Kings Courtyard. The hotel is beautifully restored without taking away the charm and historic building feel. The rooms especially reflect the age of the building. Although advertised as a B&B, the Kings Courtyard reminds me more a boutique hotel found in Europe. The entire staff was friendly and very accommodating,... More

This is an adorable inn with a reasonable price and fantastic location. You will be walking distance to everything that is Charleston! The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean. While the breakfast (free) menu is simple, it offers enough to get you ready for the day. The servers are wonderful and the environment is homey and comfortable.... More

Recently visited Charleston, South Carolina and stayed at the Kings Courtyard Inn. The Inn is perfectly located on King Street for those interested in shopping, touring the city and visiting local restaurants. Parking was very reasonable ($12 per day) in a lot directly behind the Inn. It was a bit dark but there was an attendant on site 24/7. Our... More

Located at 198 King Street in the historic peninsula district of Charleston, this hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to all of the restaurants, bars, historic buildings, and walking tour starting points that a tourist could possibly want. I even hoofed it to the Visitor's Center, which was a bit over a mile--but there's a free trolley stop on the... More
