The Barksdale House Inn is the best value in Charleston for weekends, high-season or low. Their 7-day/week rates are competitive during the week with Queen rooms starting at $199 off-season and $250 peak. On the weekend, these same rates are the best in town. There is simply no other property that offers a Queen room on a high-season weekend for $199. The Parking is included and is very convenient. You don't have to walk across the street or through a huge parking garage. You don't have to bother with valet or tipping the attendant. It's right on the property so your car will be less than 50 feet from your room.
All of the rooms have private baths and several have fireplaces. There are ten rooms in the main house, and four carriage house rooms. Their most expensive room on the weekends is only $250. It's on the first floor and has a King canopy bed, fireplace and a whirlpool tub. For breakfast, you can have pastries, fruit, coffee/tea, and juice delivered to your room or you can have it served downstairs on the Veranda and enjoy a full breakfast. The location is very convenient. It's only about a ten minute walk to the city market, and you're closer to the South Carolina Aquarium, The Visitors Center, The Charleston Museum, and the Wharf that you'd be if you were staying right on the market.
The beds have rich Egyptian cotton sheets, and each room has a telephone, central air with individual room controls, and TV with Cable. So no window air units, no shared baths, nothing unusual. Just a decent room, a good location and a great price.
Enjoy your trip, and have a great time in Charleston.
