I grew up in Aiken and always wondered what was behind the beautiful doors of this old home downtown. I was in town last weekend closing out my 68 year old family home and I treated myself to the Carriage Inn. Can't beat the location and you are surrounded by wonderful locally owned restaurants like Betsy's, New Moon Cafe, and... More

We spent two nights on Memorial Day weekend visiting relatives. The Carriage House Inn is a lovely old inn, nicely decorated, very clean (!!), and relaxing. Our room was the King with Jacuzzi which was simply but beautifully decorated, very comfortable. It was really more of a suite as both the bedroom and bathroom were huge! Our room opened up... More

Thank you John N for taking the time to review the Carriage House Inn. I shared your kind review with Andrea. Your suggestion to enlarge the storage space in room 13 is a good one and Anne is in the process of buying a new vanity to increase the storage space for the bathroom. I am glad you were able...

We choose the Carriage House for a different experience while visiting friends in Aiken. We were not disappointed. It's right in the historic downtown, parking on the street, lots of rooms, (clean, spacious, comfortable, sound proof) great staff, excellent breakfast (way good..gave us some ideas for our own!)

The Carriage House Inn provided a very pleasant get away for my wife and me. The staff were all so very helpful and accommodating from the original telephone reservation to check in to giving advise on special restraunts within walking distance to breakfast the next am to check out. The room was very comfortable and quiet and the property was... More

I recently stayed at the Carriage House. I got checked in by Donna who was a delight! Very helpful and sweet. I also got a chance to meet the housekeeping staff who were also very friendly and made a great breakfast.

Great find in a quaint little town. Very comfortable room with fabulous service. We were able to check in early because we were attending a wedding in the areas which was very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and we wish we could have stayed two nights. Nice get away from the kids.

The owner of the Carriage House, Anne Thomasson, was so very thoughtful and accommodating when we approached her to host our daughter's wedding reception. The event was no less than a spectacular success! The entire staff (Anne, Andrea, Angie and several others...) were so courteous and helpful.
