Hotel Aiken is one amazing and historical hotel. But the heart is in the story of the bar and the stories within the bar walls from the long time regulars to the new college students coming every year. No matter what u will find a story that will keep you laughing and keep you wanting more!!

Very comfortable and beautiful place for eminiscing the 50's-60's, wonderful staff especially friendly & efficient. Best southern fried chicken ever with amazing live music by Pretty Petty band. We rocked all night! Thanks again for a memorable stay! Nancy

We always stay at Hotel Aiken when visiting beautiful Downtown Aiken. Staff are great, including Brittany and Chrissy at the front desk and Nikki in the lounge . You won't regret spending your weekend at this charming hotel! Nancy and Joe

My first impression of the Hotel was it was older and somewhat out dated. But rationally, having been built in 1898 I think it is very impressive. The staff has an outstanding charm of genuine southern hospitality. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable but could use some slight modern changes. For the price I could never complain about the... More

The rooms are small and shabby. Nothing is very clean and the furnishings are all in need of serious cleaning. The worst part was the inept reservation system. We set up a block of rooms for a special family weekend. The reservations were in terrible disarray when we arrived and every day there were more problems, including double and triple... More

Everyone was so nice and helpful, and my room was easy walking distance to the library, museum, and Hitchcock Woods, as well as to the brewery and all the recommended local restaurants. Plus, the food at the Pool Hall across the street was awesome! Nightlife in house and at the Tiki Bar was altogether entertaining, and the bartender was a... More

The room was filthy, the chairs were so stained we would not sit on them. The toilet had pee on it, there was some kind of sticky stuff on the carpet, some of the wall paper was missing, the bathroom floor had black crud on it, the lobby smelled of mildew. The bathroom was partially being re painted. The room... More

How do I count the ways? Oh yeah, I was put in a motel type building across the parking lot from the main hotel. The stairwell was filthy and there was what appeared to be a used surgical glove on the floor at the top of the landing. The TV was an old tube type, but functional. The blanket on... More

I am appalled and embarrassed that I recommended the Hotel Aiken to friends of ours from out of town, and I will NEVER do so again. The Willcox, while lovely, was a little rich for their blood. When I told them about the Hotel Aiken - historic property, convenient downtown location, and half the price of the Willcox - they... More

Great location for the Beachfest in June. Prices were good. Rooms were very clean. Staff was polite. All in all a pretty good place to stay. The main hotel was very old but historical. I would definitely stay again and probably will next June.
