We spent 4 nights at the Barksdale House Inn and we were so happy with our stay. The rooms were very clean and the staff was always so kind and willing to accommodate all of our needs. Every morning we'd go to the main house for breakfast (we stayed in the carriage house) which was delicious. In the afternoon, iced... More

We stayed for a family reunion and I loved it! It's not in perfect condition, it's a bit shabby chic but very charming. The rooms are nice and the location is great. The breakfast is worth booking here. They serve an extensive breakfast on the weekends including fresh raspberries. The only other place I've stayed that serves raspberries is the... More

Everything about our stay was great. The inn is quaint yet beautiful and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating. The food was very good and nicely presented. We were able to walk around the historical area from this inn. The staff made very helpful suggestions.

I would have given this B&B a higher rating based on its staff -- their cheerfulness & service, its amenities -- breakfasts, back porch & fountain courtyard. However, I was booked into rm #13 on the 2nd floor of the Carriage House ("CH") -- it's the worst room in the Inn esthetically. I had the chance to view most of... More

My husband and I stayed at the Barksdale House B&B May 2015, room 10, top floor. Room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Each room comes with one parking space. Amenities included hairdryer, toiletries, small frig, seating area, king bed, ceiling fan, luggage rack, 2 windows, full length mirror and complimentary cookies in the room! Delicious breakfast consisted of mini... More

Took my mother to Charleston for a quick birthday celebration. We live in Beaufort, SC so its a easy 1.5 hour drive. We were very pleased with our stay. The inn is conveniently located just off King St. on George, so we were able to check in and then walk around to do some shopping. The staff was very nice... More

Rooms were nice. Great service. Breakfast was very good. Incredible location right in the middle of everything in Charleston. Ample parking. Reasonably priced. My fiance and I spent three nights at Barksdale and it couldn't have been a better experience. If I ever find my way to Charleston again, this B&B would be at the top of the list for... More

My husband and I just recently spent two days at the Barksdale Inn and I was very pleased with our room, which was #4 on the second floor in the main house. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the buffet breakfast was very nice. I love squeaky old floors, it lets me know there is age and history... More

The interior of this 18th century inn was well maintained, the staff was friendly and attentive and its location on George Street was outstanding. If you aren't used to older inns, the squeaky floors and noisy beds may be a turnoff. But for us, charm trumps modern advantages. Our room was small, but the weather was excellent so we spent...

We stayed at the Barksdale house inn for three nights and had an amazing experience. The inn is beautiful and very well maintained for a home built in the 1700's. The back porch and garden area complete with fountain is a great spot for enjoying there delicious breakfast or just to spend a quiet evening. The staff was amazing and... More
