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

Inn needs a good cleaning ( black mold on tile around the tub ) and fresh coat of paint. Shower head has to be replaced water only stream out of same, sink drains slowly. Internet doesn't work & television stuck on one channel. Breakfast was o.k., dining area small.

I stayed at the Barksdale House the week following Easter Sunday. I had always wanted to attend the Spring Festival of Houses and Gardens, and this year I finally got around to doing it. It was difficult to find accommodations, and the Barksdale was the only place left that I could afford. I have to admit the check in experience... More

From the lovely front entrance to the beautiful back porch, patio and fountain, Barksdale House is a beautiful period piece. Although we had the smallest (and only available) room, it was nicely furnished and cozy, not cramped. The weekend hot breakfast was wonderful and filled with local flavors from cheesy grits to corn bread. It was so relaxing to start... More

This is my third visit to Charleston, stayed with a girflriend for one night. Our room was on the top floor and let me say, that is a lot of stairs. If you aren't very mobile it can be difficult (I have a one year old who insisted on walking the stairs). The staff are very accommodating and the afternoon... More

This lovely old inn provided the perfect way to start our South Carolina vacation. We spent 2 nights there in a beautiful room on the front of the house. It was quiet, very roomy, immaculately clean and furnished with lovely period furniture. The k/s bed was perfect for delicious sleep -- and a step stool was provided for climbing in.... More

We chose the Barksdale House Inn from the internet….. our room was very nice and well decorated (on the 2nd floor, #3)….. but on the overall the place needs some attention. The location is wonderful. You can park your car in their lot and walk all over the historic district without a problem. The staff is also great, friendly, warm... More

We recently stayed here and were very disappointed. First with the positive - the location is good, close to downtown with parking. The staff is friendly. That's about it. The negative list is much longer unfortunately. The Inn is very run down. The exterior is dirty with the paint peeling. We were in the Carriage House in the back and... More

scott was a great host, Continental Breakfast was nice, included fresh fruit each day. We were a half a block from both King and Meeting Streets, perfect! There is a free parking behind the Inn, which is huge. The Inn could use some updating, some TLC, but the rooms were spacious and comfortable.

My friend and I spent three nights at the Barksdale House and loved it - the House was adorable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We found it absolutely amazing for the price: free wifi and free parking (both hard to find among hotels in the area) and the location is amazing, right in the heart of the... More
