Built in 1853, Kings Courtyard Inn is one of downtown Charleston, South Carolina's most historic inns. Architect Francis D. Lee designed the three-story antebellum structure in the Greek revival style with unusual Egyptian detail. The building is one of King Street's largest and oldest structures, and has had many uses during its 150 year existence. The building has housed high quality shops, private residences and at one time, the upper floors served as hotel rooms for plantation owners, shipping interests and merchant guests. Kings Courtyard Inn is located in the heart of Charleston's historic district. The Inn maintains the residential atmosphere of lower King Street, and extreme care has been taken to ensure the necessary architectural and historic accuracy for which Charleston is famous. Each of the rooms has an individual distinction. All rooms feature oversized beds- some have canopied beds and fireplaces. Many rooms boast excellent views of the inn's interior courtyards. All hotel guests receive complimentary sherry on arrival and a morning newspaper delivered to the room. They also receive a continental breakfast served each morning in their room, the courtyards, or in the breakfast room. Kings Courtyard Inn is within easy walking distance of Charleston's historic homes, gardens, churches and only a block away from the City Market. Here, one may explore interesting shops or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the city's many delightful restaurants.

The room had a nasty odor smell. The floor had crumbs on it. The sheets look like they haven't been changed. The worst experience ever I do not recommend no one to go there. You pay so much money to be uncomfortable you can hear the housekeeper and the manager talking real loud so you can't take no nap during the day time.

The staff were so friendly and welcoming! We felt totally at home here. It is truly a charming hotel with a fireplace and wood floors in the room and a relaxing courtyard with fountain in the common area. Complimentary continental breakfast could be delivered to the room at no extra charge and they even called us each morning to let us know they were on the way! Complimentary cold bottled water was available 24/7, the evening wine and cheese reception was delightful, and I was able to stream Hulu on the free WiFi with no problems. We didn’t travel with our dog on this trip but appreciated that pet friendly rooms were available. Our room included a small fridge which came in handy for chilling drinks. The parking was very convenient to the hotel (in back) and only $17/day which is about half the price you’d normally pay. The same-day laundry service was great and our clothing came back perfectly. The location was also excellent. We were able to walk to the market in seconds and the waterfront and other shops and restaurants were a just short walk away. We look forward to visiting again!

My husband and I arrived on a Friday afternoon and our room was ready for us. Kings Courtyard Inn is in a fantastic location; central and walkable to all (we did not have a car with us after arriving via Lyft from the airport). We enjoyed a wonderful glass (or two) of complimentary wine and some snacks, before setting out to explore. We found our 2 night (Fri-Sun) stay to be very enjoyable and location was wonderful. Our room was on the main floor right at the courtyard, so it was a bit noisy (especially in the late night and early morning); just something to know about when you go to check in. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous and apologized for the early morning noise by the kitchen (not staff's fault, more just the location of the particular room we stayed in). The hotel is a bit worn, but clean. It is old and historic, as is Charleston, so nothing to complain about. We were out for most of the day exploring, so most of our time in the room/at the hotel, was spent sleeping and recuperating after days full of walking and exploring. Overall our stay was good and we enjoyed our time in Charleston and the offerings of the hotel.

this inn is in a great area....easy to walk to places. the staff there were helpful to us...the room was very tired....we had a room with a connecting room...while it was great to have extra space, the room I stayed in felt like it wasn't used much. it smelled musty...like they just aired it out. they also don't clean daily....they tidy up....which doesn't ant to more than making the bed and giving new towels. they didn't vacuum up the dirt on the carpet...there was a spot of blood on my sheets (not mine) that was never changed.....it was an ok hotel.
