Clean and full of charm. The home has the Victorian character you'd expect in a Bed & Breakfast. It is right in the heart of everything - walking distance to shopping, sightseeing and historical sites. The breakfast was very good and they had coffee, tea and freshly baked cookies or brownies available during the day.

This is a classy and elegant establishment tucked away in the heart of Charleston. An easy walk to any of the downtown shops, but all of the sounds of the city do no interfere with the the peace and quiet this B&B offers. All of the rooms have a fun story, and the Inn offers deals in the local community.... More

I was traveling with a small dog, and we stayed in the carriage house of the inn. The room was large and had every amenity that I required. I particularly appreciated the small refrigerator to keep my beverages cool during the very hot days we experienced. My only complaint at all is that, despite an extra piece of foam on... More

I know it's not so touchy-feely to talk about location but it seemed to my wife and I to be a perfect value. When you add a great staff it makes for a enjoyable stay. The breakfast was continental style leaning toward fruit. The house is tucked away on a small street. The outside while attractive is in need of... More

We stayed at the lovely Barksdale House Inn for two nights, and it is a grand old place with lots of charm and character. The room we initially booked had a little problem which could have ruined our stay, but the staff were wonderful and offered us another room right away which was an upgrade. The breakfast was one of... More

Good location, close to all the sites and sounds of historic Charleston, and the College of Charleston. 14 rooms, 10 in main building, parking in back. Quaint, but for $200 per night, a bit ragged. Could use some fixing up as the renovations during building recovery left a bit to be desired in terms of returning full charm. Unattended after... More

Decided last minute to spend one night in Charleston. Found this B & B on line, called and they matched the price I found on another site. Staff was warm and welcoming when we arrived with our 2 dogs (small fee for dogs). Dogs were greeted with treats and water bowls. Had a nice breakfast outside on the patio. We... More

As stated in a few other reviews the Barksdale House Inn has some positive and negative attributes. On the positive side the common areas inside the inn are nice and the people who check you inn and out are very friendly and helpful. The room we had was also very large and clean.
