We stayed 2 nights in Barksdale House Inn while in Charleston. The location was very central, the room (13) spacious, clean and comfortable. The room was actually located at an old carriage house, behind the main building. The decoration was not as elaborate as in the main building, but we didn't mind. I would stay here again.

I have been to charleston many times, but this is the first time that I stayed downtown. The Barksdale was the perfect place to splurge. The location was great. The weekend breakfast was delicious. The parking is free. The rooms were spacious and quiet for a historic building. I would stay here again. On a side note, when in charleston... More

The only good thing to say about this bed and breakfast is that it is in a prime location. It is within walking distance of Meeting Street and King Street, and located on the edge of historic Charleston. Also, it is probably the cheapest, decent hotel you can get in the area. That being said, you get what you pay... More

We stayed at Barksdale House Inn in May 2014. We thought the Inn was lovely and the staff were very friendly. We liked the location. It was easy to walk to or take the free shuttle to everything we wanted to see. Based on some reviews we didn't know what to expect. People mentioned the area being loud at night... More

My husband and I (60+) stayed at Barksdale last month for 3 nights. We stayed in the carriage house. Bed was comfy, bathroom adequate, with lots of storage. Perhaps a comfy chair would have been a welcome addition to our room on the ground floor. The breakfast was delicious each morning and was very pleasant sitting on the porch to... More

This renovated bed and breakfast has a great location for those looking to walk to King Street, the markets, Rainbow Row and more. We were able to walk and see so much. The staff was very nice and our room (#8) was small but was fine for the two of us, esp. since we were out most of the time.... More

My carriage house room had -hair on the pillows -dirty bathroom floor -mouldy shower curtain -lip prints on the drinking glasses -unravelled carpets -dirty staircase ... I kindly told the manager the next morning. When... More

Just finished a one night stay in the Barksdale House. What a warm and quaint little place. Old school charm, rustic wood floors, four post bed, plantation shudders. All the southern details one would expect. Great from desk service and parking is included in a lot just behind the main house. Generous continental breakfast also included! They also have a...

A beautiful building in the heart of historic downtown . Every room is charming and carefully maintained in keeping with the age of the building. All the staff are very kind and helpful. The breakfast was very good and the afternoon tea and cookies are great. Thoroughly recommended.

My husband and I are planning just a quick two night stay at the Inn just to get a feel for the area, since this will be our first time in Charleston. I booked room #4 and was wondering who else out there has stayed in this room, if you have any pics of the room you would like to... More
