We booked this mid-range hotel because the building is historic and they offer an affordable 2 bedroom/2 bath suite that sleeps a family of 4. LOCATION The hotel is located on a one-way street with antique shops and high end boutiques. It is within easy walking distance of many sites and many restaurants.

Kings Courtyard Inn was the perfect hotel for our trip to Charleston. Being right on Kings St was a blast. We didn't move our car once, the wine and cheese at night was lovely, the employees were very helpful and kind, and our dog was welcome! I recommend this hotel to everyone I can! We'll be back!

Stayed here March 27-30 for the Bridge Run. This was our second stay at Kings Courtyard Inn. Both times were very nice. This time we stayed in room 403. Our room was very spacious and and very clean. The king size bed was very comfortable! The closet has a small refrigerator, iron and board. The bathroom is a bit small... More

Kings Courtyard Inn is a wonderful hotel that maintains its historic integrity but has updated its bathrooms with modern amenities. Besides its traditional architecture, the Kings Courtyard Inn provides plenty of Southern charm with its excellent personable staff, a complimentary cocktail hour and breakfast, which can be served in the courtyard or even delivered by room service.

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.
