"Delightful."
lovely large room attractively furnished with very comfortable beds, nice bathroom with tub and shower -lots of hot water, good pressure, fluffy white towels. Wonderful breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese. Because it was very cold, we didn't take advantage of the courtyards which are very attractive. Renovations to some rooms were underway with minimal inconvenience to us. Hotel staff went out of their way to give advice and offer assistance. Location on King St near Market (antiques, shopping, City Market, historical district) was superb. Would love to revisit in the spring or fall.

"Great location"
Hotel was undergoing renovation which was understandable and needed. Even though it was located in the historic district, it was still quite worn. There was quite a bit of noise. There were no dining opportunities within the hotel, but lots of choices within walking distance. They did offer a happy hour, but that wasn't something that interests me. I don't think the experience was worth the nightly rate.

"Well kept old hotel in the beautiful historic area"
We booked this hotel on the advice of a friend who visits Charleston frequently. We were very happy with the beauty of staying in such an old hotel. The ceilings were high with big windows looking out over King Street. The beds were comfortable with nice linens and plenty of pillows. They offer wine tastings in the evening and leave sherry out for guests later in the night. They also offer a continental breakfast which you can choose to eat in downstairs in the breakfast room or have delivered to your room. Staff is very friendly.

The staff is friendly and accommodating. The room we stayed in with the dog is near parking lot, a little noisy,but clean. Even was cleaned when we were out and about and dog was left in room,that was unexpected. The breakfast room and meal was not good. We went out to Toast around the corner the second morning. E

"Great spot"
The hotel was downtown just where we wanted to be. We love older buildings and enjoyed noting the architectural detail. We also enjoyed spending the night in a room more like a bedroom at home than a motel on the side of a highway. The staff was very courteous and we had a lovely stay.

"Old shoe elegance at a reasonable price."
The hotel was outstanding in all respects, except that the common areas (entry way, courtyard, breakfast room and hallways) seemed less well cared for than the lovely rooms. Consequently the traveller's first impression is not quite as favorable as the hotel deserves. It seems that such issues as removing the cleaning pails and mops from the alcove where the soft drink machine is located, would cost nothing and produce a better impression.

"Great location but has some shortcomings"
Pros: great location, convenient breakfast, manager's reception was nice, and staff was helpful/courteous. Cons: paper thin walls (bring your earplugs if you want to sleep at night), mattress was dreadful (worn/lumpy), rooms needed painting badly where furniture had rubbed up against it, and the courtyards seemed to have a lot of loud partying going on late at night which was irritating.

"Great Service at a Great Location!"
We stayed in Room 214 and although the air conditioner ran non-stop, the room did not stay cool. In addition, the room was a bit worn and tired, and the bathroom could have been cleaner (e.g., hair on the bathroom floor, etc.). However, I'm sure we will return to this hotel -- but ask for a different room. The service here is marvelous!

"Perfect location, great rooms & service"
Really enjoyed our stay at Kings Courtyard. It's located right in the heart of downtown Charleston, on the main shopping street. A short walk to all major attractions & restaurants. They have a great wine&cheese (free for guests) service every evening, which most guests seemed to take advantage of. The rooms are a bit older (ex. actual keys instead of key cards) but are very charming and well kept. Would definitely stay here again -- very good value.

"BREAKFAST IN BED!!!"
Parking was $12 a night.... and they offer BREAKFAST IN BED!!! It was fabulous! The only problem was all the noise in the halls - you could even hear conversations in other rooms. So it wasn't a sleep in late place, but it was excellent in other respects. Breakfast in bed made it worth it! Next door to Louis Vuitton & Roberto Coin.

"Great location and experience"
King's Courtyard Inn is a great location smack in the middle of the historic area of Charleston, within an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, the Battery, history, architecture, walking tours, etc. Rooms were comfortable and quiet and the complimentary breakfast was prompt and generous. A little rough around the edges (read: colorful,) the mansion was still well-maintained and managed. Had a lovely time here.

"We did not stay at Kings Courtyard"
We picked Kings Courtyard because it was downtown and had pet friendly rooms. However, after visiting the room that they had for us, we determined that since it was on the second floor and the only way up was an open staircase that our dogs could not easily negotiate, we asked if there was an alternative. While they did not have another room for us, they contacted their "sister" B & B, the Rutledge Inn, and they did have a pet friendly first floor room available. The staff a Kings Courtyard was extremely friendly and helpful, setting up the whole exchange to that all we had to do was drive a couple of blocks. The Rutledge was ready for us and check-in was a breeze. We very much appreciated the friendly help from both places.

"Lovely hotel, great location"
We enjoyed our stay at the Kings Courtyard. The room was beautiful, but there were a few tiny problems. The bed was gorgeous, and it was thoughtful for them to provide steps to get into the thing, but in the end, the only way to get into the bed was to backroll like a high jumper. One day our room had not been cleaned by the time we got back (5:00 PM) and they never got the toenail clippings left by some previous occupant.at the edge of the bed in the three days we were there. The breakfast was great, served in a lovely courtyard. Parking was convenient but the spaces are tiny. They have a lovely free wine & snacks happy hour Monday through Friday. We met some thoroughly delightful people there.

"Prime location"
I have been to Charleston on numerous occasions, and this was by far the best location of any place I have stayed. Located right on King, it is a 5 minute walk to the market, the battery, and all the great restaurants.The room was large, clean, and comfortable. The staff could not have been any nicer, from the ladies at check-in to the housekeeping and food service staff. The free breakfast and wine at 5:00 in the quaint courtyard were a great touch. The hotel is very old (it is on the historic register), so you have to be prepared for it not being "perfect." It is a courtyard hotel so you walk around an old wooden balcony above the atrium to get to your room. If I had any complaint it would be that the room could have used some updating - especially the artwork on the walls which was very dated. The room also needed a desk. If you're looking for the perfect launching spot to see Charleston, this is a great choice.

"Beware"
As we travel with our dog, we are always careful to phone and confirm with Hotels that they are "pet friendly" before finalizing our booking. We were happy to hear that the Kings Courtyard Inn was indeed pet friendly. We booked a King room for a romantic getaway. When we arrived we were given a room on the 2nd story walk-up of what appeared to have been the servant's quarters. The room was not in the main Hotel but rather in an annex at the back of the Hotel adjacent to the parking lot. The annex had none of the historic charm of the main Hotel, small windows facing an alley etc. Further while we had booked a King Room, the room we were given was a tiny room that barely fit a Queen sized bed. We explained to the front desk that we we had booked a King room in the main Hotel and would like to change rooms. We were coldly informed that there were no King rooms that were "pet friendly" and all the "pet friendly" rooms were in the tiny annex and not in the Hotel proper. When we explained that none of this was made clear at the time of booking, we were briskly told there was no alternative. Unfortunately we were stuck as the town was very busy. We were very disappointed. We had been led to believe that we were going to stay in a romantic historic Inn - not the servants annex. Had we been told that there were no king pet friendly rooms, and no pet friendly rooms in the Hotel itself, we would have made alternate plans. We feel we were deliberately misled. What a Shame.

The Kings Courtyard was very good. Centrally located in the downtown , offstreet parking, 12$ per day and only 1 block to The City Market. On King Street where all the good shopping is. Only a few blocks from the cruise ship terminal and the water.

"A King's hideaway in historic Charleston!"
Perfect hotel in the historic district of Charleston. We walked right out our door to King Street with shops and restaurants all over. Hotel is beautiful, preserved very well with ample room space and quaint windows and decor. Little courtyards with open spaces gave it a real European feel. Breakfast was terrific. I would recommend it highly and well worth the price. A+++

This hotel is situated well for the French quarter and historic old town and is right in the heart of things on King Street. It is quiet and staff are courteous and helpful rather than warm. like most of the Inns it has a welcome complimentary wine and cheese hour . It is clean and the room although basic was very comfortable. Beds are firm.

Mysigt hotell i äldre välhållen sydstatsstil, mycket centralt placerat i Charlestons historiska kvarter. Väl städat o rent. Mycket bra service och bra restaurangrekommendationer från personalen som jobbade kväll, i övrigt lite seg och trött personal i receptionen och lite blandat i frukostserveringen. Trevlig och duktig personal som serverade i den fria vinbuffen på eftermiddagarna, mycket uppskattat.
