Very charming small cute hotel. It has a personal touch to it that makes you feel comfortable. Staff was welcoming and pleasant, and the breakfast was amazing. The location is also incredible. My only complaint is our TV was super small. Was hard to watch at night. Would stay again!

I travel a lot and stay in chain hotels off the beaten path. This place is at the very heart of Charleston, you can walk everywhere. The price range was no different than a chain hotel around the airport, and the Inn itself was very nice... The service was great. Can't find a thing to complain about.

We were wanting something other than your standard chain hotel. The Kings Courtyard is not that. It is an older quaint hotel built around a central courtyard in the heart of everything in the historic district. Out room was spacious and very clean. The beds were comfortable. The staff (for the most part) was very helpful. I especially liked the... More

WOW! Where do i start....the staff is amazing, from the check in experience to the housekeeping staff. I drove 12 hours strait and came in a bit earlier than check in time. The staff was delighted to get me situated without batting an eyelash. The location is central to everything that is Charleston. So once I parked my car, i... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days in April. The location of this hotel can't be beat and was within walking distance to great restaurants, shops and sights! Our breakfasts were great and the staff were friendly and helpful! Although clean and quiet, our room was a little worn, dark and could use a fresh coat of paint and... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat. Right in downtown Charleston. We were able to walk everywhere! The only time we drove was to go to Folly Beach which was a short drive. The hotel room felt like a bedroom which made our stay that much more comfortable. The bathroom was gorgeous and spacious. We will stay there again... More

Are you looking to stay in a piece of history but yet with all the modern conveniences ? Well look no further we found it. From the beautiful courtyard, to the free wine and cheese hour, to the Free Sherry in the lobby, and breakfast. You are spoiled your entire visit. The hotel is very old and lovely. But when... More

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
