Great stay in Charleston
This place is great! The staff are friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. It is close enough that you can leave your car and either walk or, if you want, try a bicycle taxi to get to most of the main Charleston attractions.

A great place to stay in Charleston!
We recently stayed at the Barksdale House Inn for an anniversary trip and it was amazing! The inn staff were warm, welcoming and super helpful throughout our four night stay. The daily breakfasts were delicious and having coffee/tea and snacks always available was great after a long day of adventuring. Everything in Charleston was easily walkable from the inn. We would definitely stay here in the future.

Wonderful staff! Good location in the city yet also very quiet. Love having the coffee machine available in the am and lots of treats left by the staff. They held my bags after checkout, no problem. Cannot say enough good things about the people. The rooms were quaint and old fashioned but a great bathroom and shower. Loved it.

Nice stay. Room was nice and breakfast was good.
Nice place to stay. Only issue we had was our room was right next to front door of the back building. When folks starting leaving at 6:30am, it seemed like everyone let the door slam shut. Breakfast was great, room was clean and staff very helpful. We did get an extra charge for parking that was a surprise, although it was not a crazy amount.

Lovely stay
Not keen on being on the third floor but once there we were guided through a lovely room by staff. We found the room a comfortable temperature, plenty of room for our suitcases, refrigerator, safe, small flat screen, nice shower and plenty of linens. We were informed the kitchen was under remodeling but breakfast items would be provided in the morning. We didn’t know what we were missing until day after. Breakfast was delicious! AND made to order! On-site parking, super friendly staff and easy walking location in historic district made for great stay. One small thing: would be nice to be able to get ice after 7 when staff leave.
