I saw the other reviews of this place complaining about the age of the inn, the service, etc, so I wasn't sure what to expect. However, what I found was you get what you pay for at this particular inn. In other words, the Barksdale House Inn is a great place to stay if you want a clean, inexpensive, great location in downtown Charleston. If you want all of the extra ammenities that other high priced inns offer, then you need to be willing to pay for those ammenities and not expect the Barksdale House Inn to provide things you aren't willing to pay for.You don't pay for all of the benefits that some people complained about not having on trip advisor, so don't expect them. However, the Barksdale House Inn is clean, is a great location, and the people who run it are friendly and welcoming. They allowed us to park in their lot before official check in time, brought our puppy a bowl of water while we decided what to do and made us feel completely at home and welcome. The Barksdale House Inn is a wonderful place to stay at, and as long as you aren't expecting high priced ammenities, then I recommend staying here.
On another note, it is an especially great place to bring your four legged friend because it is only $10 a night and they are kind and welcoming to your pet and they don't make you feel like you are inconveniencing them at all by bringing your pet.
