My husband and I have been living in Germany for over 35 years. We are used to European style hotels. We have been planning our transition to Aiken for several years. We always stay at the Inn at Houndslake. Everyone that works there makes us feel so welcome. We enjoy the European breakfast, clean, comfortable rooms, quiet area, swimming pool,... More

The bed was comfortable and the amenities very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again in a minute. This would be a great place... More

We chose The Inn at Houndslake for a huge gathering of family and friends, and immediately felt embraced into the family of this charming boutique hotel! From the moment we were greeted by name to our departure, we felt right at home! Breakfast was scrumptious and every comfort was available-- we look forward to our return.

After seeing the TV show of this property, I expected improvements but none of the other rooms have been updated since the 80's. If you want the only decent room, you’d better ask for the Hotel Impossible room, otherwise you get what I did: *Stained carpet and upholstery *Frayed curtains *Peeling wallpaper *No fridge *No microwave *No coffee maker *Dark...

Snuggled alongside the golf course and across from the clubs swimming pool and just a short stroll to the country club, is located the best kept secret Inn in Aiken. The rooms are quite spacious with nice views of the golf course and beautiful grounds. A wonderful main room for coffee and chat with eating privileges at the club house.... More

We just spent 12 nights at the Guest House before moving back in France, it is a great place to stay, peaceful, in the golf. Free access to the pool, awesome in summer. The staff is very nice and you feel like at home. We warmly recommand this hotel.
