I brought my best friend, whose last name happens to be "Barksdale" here for a "girls" weekend. It is right in the heart of downtown Charleston - close to everything you need; shops, great restaurants, entertainment. The staff is great! Scott was a great host to us. The breakfasts & afternoon teas were unlike the stale food you get at... More

I stayed at Barksdale House for two nights during June 2015. There were some renovations happening in the rear courtyard but it was handled really well so that there was no additional noise or inconvenience to guests. All of the staff were friendly, polite and helpful. The house itself has a ton of character and the room was amazing. The... More

This was our second stay in the Barksdale House Inn, and it was as enjoyable as the first a few years back. We were there five days and four nights, and purposefully split our stay into 2 nights in the main house and 2 nights in the carriage house. We'd been on the 3rd floor the first visit; this time...

This was our first trip to Charleston and I must say the location worked out perfectly! We were within about a mile walking distance from everything we wanted to do. The longest walk was about 1.5 miles to Battery Park. The house was a little dated but overall we had a great experience, and the price was very reasonable. The... More

We arrived to a welcome "tea time" selection of delicious fresh warm snacks and beverages including unlimited sherry and Firefly vodka! The front desk staff was quite friendly and answered all of our tourist inquiries very thoroughly. The interior decor as well as our room was quite charming and quite apropos to Charleston. The hotel provides free ice water and... More

Returning to the Barksdale Inn after two years. We were a party of 5 and had rooms 5, 6 and 8. First of the two are shown in my pics. Huge spacey room, very tidy and clean. Same for room 6. Room 8 is quite a bit smaller and for rather smaller people as the bed is pretty short. The... More

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
