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. On the negative side it appears that... More

I would recommend this adorable Bed And Breakfast to anyone! A quick and short walk to the campus of The College of Charleston. An easy walk to many restruants and shopping. The staff was truly amazing and welcoming! The main house and carriage house maintains my idea of a vintage southern home. A beautiful court yard! The snacks and beverages... More

Beautiful bed and breakfast within walking distance of all Charleston has to offer! Staff was extremely helpful and courteous! Breakfast and goodies were plentiful and delicious. We stayed in the second floor of the carriage house. It was cool and quiet! So thankful for the keurig and cookies just a flight of stairs away. Parking is very convenient!

A convenient location and a friendly & helpful staff make this B&B a worthwhile base to see the sights. Although the Inn needs freshening (It looks and feels a bit run down.), we enjoyed our 3 day stay with ample breakfasts and all-day access to coffee, tea and cookies. The room was away from the street and quiet. The housekeeper... More
