Over Thanksgiving, my husband, dog and I drove to Florida to visit family. It was our first trip with the dog and our first experience with "dog friendly" hotels. Our experience ran the gamut from welcoming to tolerant. The Kings Courtyard Inn is tolerant. The hotel's location is great -- right in the center of the action. There is a... More

My wife and I hadn't been to Charleston in over 20 years, and were looking forward to a romantic getaway. We chose the 'Kings Courtyard Inn' in the historic part of town, and are very glad we did. My wife just loved the Suite that we had reserved. And the service was outstanding. There were two people (on staff) that... More

The Kings Courtyard is not the plushest, most luxuriant hotel in Charleston. It is very comfortable, well located, quiet, and charming. And it has staff who will go the extra mile to be helpful and make your stay more pleasant. It is the staff that really sets this hotel apart.

My wife and I traveled to Charleston for our wedding anniversary and had a blast. When we arrived the concierge desk was very helpful in suggesting local sites and restaurants and we settled in for a few days. Our room had a private courtyard which was great for an evening cigar after a full day of walking around this beautiful... More

We've just returned home from four nights in Charleston. We were a group of 22 travelers and we all were very happy with our rooms, hotel location, service and especially meeting in the courtyard for wine and cheese before heading out to dinner each night. We all highly recommend The Kings Courtyard Inn and their very helpful and courteous staff.... More

This hotel was very nice. Lots of that southern charm. The location was very central. Price was decent. Breakfast was very basic, but good. Our TV didn't work in our room. It would've been nice to see the local new etc. I'd stay here again, and I'd recommend it. :0)

The hotel is in the heart of the city. It's right on King st and backs up to Market and Meeting. Easy access to every touristy thing in the city. While breakfast is included, it is nothing special. It's not like a typical complimentary hotel breakfast, the choice is very limited with satisfactory quality. Also, it is not self-serve which... More
