The Barksdale Inn is a great old home that has lost some of its character as it has been converted into a B & B. There is no real common room for guests to sit in and enjoy the ambiance and most areas of the house needs repair. We had a large first floor room with a big bay window... More

Staying at the Barksdale House was both very good and not so good. The establishment is fortunate in its helpful and friendly staff, but even they cannot do more than being helpful and friendly. The two buildings and their surroundings might have been once called "chic", but it seems that either through neglect, or low funds, the whole establishment became... More

We like staying in B & Bs especially in historic cities where we look forward to the charm of the city translating to the B & B. The Barksdale Inn was somewhat of a disappointment. Our room (one of the first floor rooms) was a lovely large room, but the bathroom was very small with a mirror/ medicine cabinet that... More

The inn is located within easy walking distance of great restaurants and historic sites. The staff was courteous and helpful. On site parking was included. The room was lovely, but the plumbing needs updating. The fixtures were old, there was mold in the tub grout, and the air conditioner leaked onto toilet. The hot water temperature was set too high.

We stayed at the Barksdale House the first week of September 2014. This was our first trip to Charleston and we could not have picked a more convenient location. The inn was within walking distance to everything. We stayed in the carriage house and our room was large, clean and had a mini fridge, table and chairs, flat screen tv... More

The location is ideal as it is withing walking distance of most city sites. The staff upon arrival was friendly. However the "garden & veranda" could use a good landscaper. Our room was comfortable but the bath was small & in need of an update with only one small mirror in the bath. The shower curtain was moldy. (a quick... More

The barksdale house inn was fantastic! They allow pets, which was very helpful for us while passing through the area with our cat. The room was very cute and quaint, and the staff very friendly. Definitely gives you the old timey experience while also providing close access to all the shops.

We were looking forward to our stay in this picturesque hotel in Charleston but we had a very disappointing experience. We slept in the carriagehouse in room number 14. Hotels come in many flavors but in the end they have to provide the customer one thing and that’s a good night sleep. Well, to us this hotel couldn’t live up... More

My wife and I love staying in B&B's while traveling and the Barksdale House Inn is a great choice with a very convenient location. Charleston offers a lot of B&B choices. We chose the Barksdale because it offered free parking and a very reasonable room rate. As is typical with most hotels, check-in is after 3pm, yet we arrived around... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay here. The price was reasonable compared to other B&B's and included free parking. The breakfast was not elaborate but surprisingly healthy -- they had Kashi Go Lean, oatmeal, hardboiled eggs, nice fruit (strawberries, blueberries, etc.) among other things. We walked everywhere we went in Charleston no problem. The room was nice... More
