Wonderful location, awesome staff and breakfast. It is right on the street so you hear traffic and it is an old house so you definitely hear staff and other guests. I would love to see some sprucing up of both the exterior and interior. Regardless, I would recommend the Barksdale House Inn to those visiting Charleston.

This Inn is quaint and beautiful. It met all our needs and surpassed our expectations. Staff were personable and made us feel very welcome to the Inn and Charleston I have already told several friends this is absolutely the place to stay when visiting Charleston, SC. The location is within a short walking distance to everything!

The Inn was within walking distance to the Market Place and shopping on King Street. Our 3rd floor room was spacious. The queen mattress needs to be replaced. It was lumpy and not very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. We were given a menu with several choices of meals. Keurig machines were located in several places throughout the Inn.

Samuel, We are pleased that you enjoyed our location, free breakfast, and spacious rooms. If you could please tell me what room you were in I would be more than happy to take a look at the mattress. We have had almost all of the replaced. Thank you and I hope to see you again in the future.

Excellent and friendly staff. Very accommodating. We were pulling a a motorcycle on a small trailer and they has a spot for us to park which is almost impossible to find in this city.The house itself is very old, so don’t expect everything to be shiny and perfect. That was part of the charm of staying here. also wonderful breakfast in the morning.

Our deluxe room had only one comfortable sitting location. There were two or three straight chairs which are only a little better than standing. They could be tossed out. The room needs a small sofa for two or a second comfortable chair with upholstered seat and back. The one comfortable chair had a seat with the attaching screws missing. No, sitting upright with pillows on the the bed is not an adequate substitute for a comfortable chair.

Right from the get go the staff were so friendly! Upon checking in, they gave us a map with a recommended walk to do around the city which was great because this was our first time visiting Charleston! The room was very clean and cozy, and the breakfast was great. The inn was located in the perfect spot, within walking distance to everything but still very quiet. I cannot recommend this place enough!
