Greeted after a long trip with "get out of my way, I've got groceries" by the hostess, dead plants, curtains rumpled on the floor of the reception area, half opened boxes and no TP in the hallway bathroom at the entrance. In two days, there was a rotation of 6 mostly unpleasant receptionists dealing with the guests. Great location but...

The location of Barksdale House is very good. The free, available parking onsite, too, is a positive. The quality of the bedding here is good, and the room, although in need of a renovation, is comfortable. So much, for the positives of this establishment. On our recent visit, there was a very little welcoming feel to the establishment. Arriving at...

We stayed here for 2 nights just before Thanksgiving. We booked the room over the dining room and found it very comfortable. We realized that it was an older building, but that's the kind of charm we look for. The room was clean and warm. We enjoyed the fireplace for ambiance and the large jetted tub to soak in. The...

This was my first trip to Charleston and Barksdale House definitely added to the charming experience. First off the obvious--an amazing location. It's right off King St. near tons of shopping and restaurants, and less than a twenty minute walk from the water. With it being a side street, it was also quiet. This is not a gleaming new Hilton...

Enjoyed this B&B for several reasons: its fantastic location, which made walking to historic sites and restaurants very easy; its staff, who were very attentive and fun to talk to; its offering (thru a private company) a great historic walking tour of Charleston; and the nice room with gas fireplace to relax in at the end of the day. These...

My husband and I spent one overnight at this inn to celebrate his graduation. We did a staycation as we live nearby. The inn is in a great location - easy walks to King St., the market and East Bay for world renowned restaurants. I was a little concerned having read some reviews on Trip Advisor, and we did not...

Our family of four had two rooms for two nights at Barksdale House and it proved to be a great choice. Rooms 3 & 5 were very charming, the beds comfortable and the weekday continental breakfast was all we could want. It's location is perfect for the free trolley, the house itself was a talking point on the horse drawn...

Convenient parking around the back, access down side. Missed some touches that make for a better b&b experience. Not sure why some b&b's and hotels feel the need to offer shampoo and conditioner but not shower gel. Breakfast was a Hampton inn style affair - a choice of breads with only one choice of topping (philly), commercial fruit yoghurt cups,...

I had the opportunity to visit Charleston with my family just before Thanksgiving, and in looking for a quiet, off the beaten path place to stay, we settled on the Barksdale House Inn. Located off of a side street in a generally quiet neighborhood up near the College of Charleston, the Barksdale House is still within walking distance of the...
