Wonderful Accomadation

We had a wonderful week long vacation in Charleston, and our stay at The King's Courtyard was all we could have hoped for and more. Our room was spotless, cool, comfortable in every way, and charming to boot! Staff was gracious and helpful, and the location of the inn was ideal. The continental breakfast is simple but nicely prepared. I would encourage anyone looking for a charming hotel in Charleston to check out this hotel!

friday in charleston

We were there to explore Charleston. Our room had a great colonial flair with high ceiling and classical furniture. There is a beautiful garden in the center of the hotel. What they don't tell you is the parking lot is in the back of the hotel and shared by several others. Don't be fooled by the 'lot full' sign; drive up to the attendant and tell them where you are staying. The concierge will give you a pass to leave the premises. You pay the parking fees to the hotel.

not so great place to stay

The hotel smelled funny, like wet type of smell, air conditioner did not cool properly, could not get the temp cooler than 74 degrees, very small tv, in a very akward position. The location was ok.

Great location

Loved the location and the very helpful concierge. We did find a cigarette but on the floor in our non-smoking room. The cleaning staff didn't discover it during our stay. Otherwise we were happy with the hotel. good complimentary breakfast, good service, great location. Our room was small and only looked onto the enclosed courtyard so there was a lack of privacy, but we booked last minute and suspect this was all they had left.

Fun Girls Weekend!

My friend and I agree that this was a good hotel based on what we needed. We needed a safe hotel with a clean room and a great location. The room was clean, the breakfast was a great way to start the day and the location was excellent. The staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful.

Excellent Location & Service

Girlfiends from years back, was the perfect vacation to relax and catch up with each. Walked the Battery, toured beautiful old mansions, ate wonderful food at Magnolia and Diane's, enjoyed all that Charleston had to offer on our short weekend trip. Great breakfast at the hotel dining room also.
