We really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. It's a charming old house minutes away from shops, restaurants and history. There's a great and delicious breakfast and afternoon tea/snack. Parking is included.

This B and B is an older building that is elegant, if a bit run down. Much of it has not been updated, but that's part of the charm. It is clean and spacious. On a fairly busy street, so if you want quiet, we suggest asking of a room that doesn't face the street. The staff are friendly and... More

My mom and I stayed here January 2014 and had the most wonderful time. The hotel is in a great location, steps away from King Street and the price can't be beat - even if just for the location. Aesthetically the house looks a little bit run down but I think that has a lot to do with the lot... More

The outside needs repair (cosmetic mostly, it seems) but the inside looks nice. The people are very nice and the snacks during the day are really tasty. Breakfast was just ok. But we were in room 2 which is right at the front of the house. It was very noisy and hard to get rest once people were up or... More

You can't beat the free parking and perfect location of this inn. It's half a block fro m King and from Meeting making it an easy walk to many great restaurants and shops. The staff members are very friendly and accommodating. Our room #11 in the Carriage house seemed to have a heating problem that we didn't discover until evening... More

Spent 5 nights at Barksdale Inn. ALL of the staff went out of their way to make guests comfortable and meet our needs. The breakfast on Sunday was the best with a few hot items, remaining days breakfasts were mostly breads, cereals, and few fruits. The bright and sunny new sunroom made up for the lackluster breakfasts. Our Room #7... More

Lovely B&B in a great location. Our room on the third floor was spacious and well-appointed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Back deck under construction when we visited will be a nice addition. Wish the breakfast choices were more extensive

Barksdale House Inn, we found on Booking.com late one night. The inn is a beautiful old Southern Home with a Slave Quarter house in the back of the property. Beautiful property and very quiet when needed. Located close to numerous sightseeing venues and great restaurants which I will review later.

The inn is beautiful. Bedrooms large and very clean. Good location. Sherry, teas, desserts and snacks plentiful, coffee and tea machines on every floor. More importantly are the people who staff the inn. Scott was beyond helpful and accommodating. Parking was great too. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.
