Great customer service at the Hotel Aiken- funny and friendly people work here. They're very helpful too. The lounge and the bar are good watering holes. Unfortunately it's the hotel itself that lets this property down. I get the whole "since 1898" thing and I appreciate that the rates are comparatively low. What I don't understand is why the hotel...

One of the worst experiences of my entire life. The TV was small, got zero of the channels a normal hotel would get, and the room smelled like weed. It looked like housekeeping hadn't cleaned my room in months, and nothing worked well at all. The front desk associate in the afternoon was rude, and messing around on their phone... More

"Checked into two rooms (because the first one was disgusting) before checking out ONE HOUR LATER due to the nastiness. Wall paper peeling off the walls, broken refrigerator, stained carpet, plaster coming down from celing and the worst ... large stains on the sheets. Have never felt so unsafe and unclean in a hotel. To top it off ,,, the... More

We stayed two nights during the Masters and couldn't get any hot water out of the showers. The hotel staff came over to look and best they could muster was room tempature water. Evidently the water heaters can't accommodate a fully booked hotel. Next year we will be looking elsewhere.

Probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed in and I've stayed in some dumps. There is nothing nice about this place. The whole place smells, the room was filthy, the bedding was stained, and the breakfast was disgusting. The staff was completely disconnected. They charge outrageous prices for Masters week. They should be put in jail. To top it off,... More

I am surprised anyone has anything nice to write review wise. This is a dirty disgusting motel that needs a complete redo. They give you two hand towels in your room with a packet of shampoo and tiny soap. The ceilings have water stains and huge cracked areas and collapsing. The Polo Tavern is a white trash bars of locals... More

This place was disgusting. The bathroom and tub/shower was so filthy we couldn't take a shower. No wi-fi, microwave, or frig, even though our reservations said we would have those. Breakfast was a joke. It’s called a hotel it’s actually just a cheap motel. Making another trip to Aiken soon, but will never be staying there again.

Bathroom undergoing some kind of redo, towel bar barely attached to wall, label not peeled off tub surround, painting started but not completed. TV staticky, channel changer doesn't work right, can't get free WI-FI and very poor internet service. Cost $250 a night due to the Masters Golf.

This is one of those motels that almost looks like a pay by the hour place. The workers there are all dressed in their own worn out clothing and they trade nights at the hotel for work performed during the day. The location is amazing, walk to EVERYTHING downtown Aiken because this is right in the middle of downtown. If... More

Basic, clean, roomy lodging at very reasonable rate. Room had everything we needed and bed/pillows were comfy. Carpet like new which was nice. Breakfast very basic but adequate. Our room faced the tavern so on a Saturday night the music had the place hopping. Loved the downtown convenience of walking to dining and entertainment. Staff friendly. Good music and food... More
