Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    Our room was very clean. This place does not have a huge amount of rooms, so we never had to wait to talk to the conceirgie (sp?)

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is charming! Our room had a courtyard view from both the doorway and the opposite window. Very centrally located in downtown, easy walking distance to shopping and historic landmarks.

    Parking lot is small, few spaces, many that were very narrow. Twice we were unable to get into our car because of proximity to others.

  • Older travelers

    Location, Decor, Wine and Cheese, Complementary Continental Breakfast

  • Older travelers

    Staff very friendly. Cleanliness of the room & the décor. The courtyards very romantic & relaxing. Very nice experience. Look forward to returning.

  • Older travelers

    Convenience to tourist and historic area of Charleston. Ambience and quirkiness of building

    Small bed and small room

  • Older travelers

    We loved our stay at Kings Courtyard Inn because it is just steps out the door to central downtown Charleston. After a whole day of walking the beautiful neighborhoods and waterfront it was wonderful to return to the serene shelter and comfort of the hotel's inner courtyards for complementary wine and cheese tasting. A great way to shift gears before heading back out to enjoy the nightlife that is all around. The concierge was so helpful and pleasant. Our room was beautifully appointed, and we felt pampered the whole time. A mistake was made on our check-out bill, but it was cheerfully corrected with no hassles. We would most definitely stay there again.

  • Older travelers

    Located absolutely centrally in the Historic Downtown Charleston the hotel was comfortable and relaxing with perfect touches of evening complimentary wine tasting and nibbles; and breakfast served to your room at no extra cost.

    Although the additional special touches were greatly appreciated we felt that the hotel was a little over priced, particularly with a $12 a day parking fee added.

  • Group of friends

    Location of the hotel.

    Breakfast would have been nicer if it was a buffet style where you could pick and choose. Robes in bathrooms would have also been nice.

  • Older travelers

    The stay was excellent. Very convenient for sightseeing, shopping and dining Would stay again.

  • Older travelers

    The location was excellent, close to restaurants and shops. The wine and cheese in the evening was a great add on. The breakfast was very nice in the courtyard. The rooms were very colonial and well appointed if one likes that decor, which we did. The fireplace was a added feature.

    We did not have a porter available to help us with our luggage when we checked in and checked out. Our room was on the street side and close to the ice machine so we had a noisy location in the Inn. Had we stayed another evening I would have asked to be move.

  • Older travelers

    Your courteous staff, especially Valerie on night duty and your manager responded quickly and appropriately to a most unfortunate situation with the air conditioner in room 307. Valerie's swift action salvaged our brief stay at your hotel on our way to Seabrook Island. Your manager's caring response to my request for forgiveness of the nightly rate is most appreciated and will be long remembered. I will most certainly recommend your secluded oasis to many. Hugh Dempsey

  • Older travelers

    The staff was tremendously helpful with every question we had. We loved the historical look and the access to shopping and great restaurants. The room was old, which we expected, but very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Charleston.

    We weren't crazy about having to pay for parking.

  • Older travelers

    Ambience,location in downtown Charleston, closeness to shopping & restaurants, Comfortable bed.

  • Couple

    Simple arrangement, easy access, good parking, very nice.

  • Family with children

    This was the perfect place to stay for the weekend with my 2 adult daughters. The hotel is in a great location; the staff was always friendly and helpful. Loved having breakfast in the courtyard and wine and cheese later in the evening. It was our first time staying in the hotel and we were pleasantly surprised.
