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...

The Barksdale House is in an ideal spot for shopping and site seeing. The staff are both friendly and knowledgeable and were able to help us with suggestions and directions. There is ample and free off street parking which is a big plus in busy Charleston. We enjoyed our stay but found the neighborhood noisy. We were awakened one morning...

The Barksdale Inn was built in the late 1700s so the interior reflects the time period and remodeling. We easily found the Inn as we made our way from the airport and the Inn has plenty of parking spots in the back. We were greeted and given a second floor room that faced the back upstairs patio and the carriage...
