We stayed for 3 nights at the Barksdale House Inn in room 8, at the beginning of May. The staff was friendly, gracious and helpful. The room and the bathroom wer both very pretty and clean, and the linens smelled heavenly. The location was quiet, and the little garden with a fountain in the middle was charming. Breakfast is served there, or in your room, and is arranged very attractively - several varieties of fruit, and a pastry. with coffee and orange juice. The only improvement I would make is to be more careful about the quality of fruit served with the breakfast - it was generally tasteless. We had the opportunity to see all the other rooms, and they were even lovelier than ours, which was the smallest and least expensive of all, but still very charming. There is free parking at the Inn (parking downtown is very difficult), but the walk to downtown historic Charleston takes about 20 minutes, so bring your walking shoes. There are numerous restaurants at the end of the 20 minute walk. "Historic Charleston' has a wonderful gift shop downtown - don't miss it. Also don't miss the Tea walking tour - the guide really knows Charleston.
