Not only is this an Iconic historic hotel with deep Southern roots, and Southern charms, but also one that exemplifies Southern Graciousness. No one could have done a better job than Ms. Kimberly McDuffie. She... More

Checking in was first surprise. We were escorted to room where hostess checked for our satisfaction. The entrance opens to a lounge,bar and large seating area. Very nicely appointed. Room was smaller but more than enough room for two people. Clean..Quiet..We spent free time exploring Aiken. A lovely destination. A bit higher priced than competition but the extras make it...

Beautifully restored inn nestled in historic downtown Aiken. Lovely room with four poster bed, old fashioned shutters on the windows and nicely appointed bathroom. Food in the restaurant was superb (try their soups that change nightly) and service outstanding. Nice morning continental breakfast - homemade yogurt was delicious! Beautiful lobby with old-fashioned feel and look; welcoming pool area (no kids... More

We could not even dream of a better wedding venue. The property is a beautiful example of Southern Hospitality. Our rehearsal dinner was set outdoors at the pool. The tables accommodated over 50 family and wedding party guests. The guests were so pleased with the quality and quantity of the food provided at our buffet. The meal was delicious!! The... More

The Willcox is the best place to eat in the entire County! I haven't ever experienced poor service & have been given every opportunity to feel welcomed, waited on, and served to the best of human capabilities! The staff is well trained and beyond friendly which makes the trip more than a visit but an experience!!! Highly recommended!!!!

The best thing about this Inn is the staff. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and are as pictured. The restaurant was delicious, quiet and efficient. The pool was beautiful, private and comfortable. The front entrance is not handicapp friendly (no ramp) but the staff will help you get in or do it for you. There is an elevator , which... More

There was nothing particularly wrong with our stay at the Willcox. The staff were very nice, the room was very nice, and amenities are numerous. There is a pool, a bar, a very busy restaurant, and all the conveniences of a well run hotel. Still, there was nothing about our stay that made me think "Wow, I must come back."... More

I know the title sounds like an exaggeration but I'm completely serious! We (my husband and I, along with my brother, his wife, and their 1-year-old baby) had planned a stop in Aiken to break up a long drive from Savannah to Asheville. Although the Willcox certainly seemed lovely from the website, we had no real idea of what to... More

This hotel is an amazing stop to stay at. A very nice historic place to stay with all the little touches. The paints in my room were priceless. Huge king size bed. And a zen room! This was awesome. If you are looking for a place to stay, stay here! 😀
