Great place to stay!

My husband and I chose Kings Courtyard Inn on the fly from this website. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at its central location (right on King Street with all the shopping). Our room was cozy with a king bed and decent sized bathroom. I was most impressed by the FREE continental breakfast that was delivered to our room. Of course you can order off the breakfast menu, but the free items we ate (especially the home-made pastries) were delicious! We will stay there again!

Excellent accomodations and perfect location!

The Kings Courtyard Inn staff went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. There was a lot of morning noise (due to construction) outside the room my husband and I were initially staying in, and I reported this to the staff. I was given the option to move into a suite at no additional charge and spent the remainder of the trip in a really fabulous room. The location on King Street is perfect, and the value is exceptional. The breakfast is quite nice, and you have the option of having your breakfast tray delivered to your room. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the Kings Courtyard Inn!
