We stayed for three nights during a busy holiday weekend. I found the staff friendly and efficient. The inn is not fancy but it has charm. It has a nice patio and a shaded garden that was quite pleasant to sit at in the afternoon before heading out for dinner. The inn also has a private parking lot to the...

We stayed in the carriage house, behind the main house. The room was clean and comfortable. We only had 2 nights in Charleston and so were out running around most of the time but it's a fine place to sleep. We didn't have any noise troubles with the parking lot next to the Inn and it was centrally located, just...

I am in agreement with the comments made in recent reviews. We paid about $150/night in the main house on the top floor. When planning our trip, it was the best cost/benefit available so my expectations were not great as I was avoiding the 200-400 range. No noise problem for us on the third floor and we asked for a...

I booked this B&B online, and it IS in a good location, but other than that, it is totally not worth the money. I agree completely with Becky98, because we stayed in room 12 also, and that same old toothpaste is still in the medicine cabinet! The room had very old worn carpet, and was generally just "ok". The breakfast...

My mom used to say it doesn't cost anything to be clean and nice. But for $200 a night I am expecting both, I got neither. My first look at our room and I wanted to run, that night I was laying in bed thinking "How can I get out of a non refundable room?" In the 4 days here...

I had to pay over $300 a night and that was through Expedia and I was very disappointed. The place needs a lot of repair. We were in room 12 in the building in the back. It was spacious, but kind of run down- carpet coming apart, in need of paint, filth in the exhaust fan in the bathroom, still...

The Barksdale Inn has great potential, but needs some work. The location is good. I cannot say that the breakfast during the week at least was very good. Other than the fresh fruit and readily available coffee, the rest was prepackaged tiny bagels, English muffins and small waffles that were only somewhat edible after toasting. There was no regular bread...

Charming historic house, gracious 9 ft ceilings, finished with historic era furniture. Flooring in bedroom has beautiful 10 inch wide planks with some gaps in between, that are a bit "wonky" and creak. Breakfast was very good - serve yourself cereal, bagels, waffles, fruit, hard boiled eggs. There is Keurig coffee maker with selection of coffee, tea or hot chocolate...

It does not matter where you stay, no room is perfect so the important thing is how problems get handled by the staff. I had an issue in my room and the staff responded immediately. We are so used to bad customer service that I fully expected them to blow me off or give me excuses but they didn’t. This...
