I’m not sure how anyone could give this place 5 an excellent rating. The good parts were the staff, location and the bed was clean and comfortable. The carpet was horrible. I was afraid to walk it in my bare feet. It should have been replaced years ago. The shower was barely acceptable. The Inn has a great potential, but needs a major overhaul. I can’t imagine them being in business much longer without a major refurbishment.

This is a hotel in an unusual location, on the grounds of a country club/real estate development. But it was certainly a great place to stay. It's a couple of miles outside Aiken which can be considered a plus if you're looking for someplace quiet and in a peaceful setting. My room was very clean with a comfortable bed, sofa, and chair. The continental breakfast was perfect for me, cereals, fresh fruit, pastries, oj. and excellent coffee The bathroom was a little dated but it was very clean and for me, just fine. I will happily stay there again.

I have stayed here a number of times when visiting family who live in the community. It has never disappointed. The staff has always been great, personable and very helpful. It is in the midst of the golf course, club house, tennis courts, pool and right there on the #9 green give me thing to watch while relaxing on the patio.

Beautiful location overlooking Houndslake golf course and adjacent Country Club pool available to Inn guests. Our visitors felt welcomed and pampered by the friendly and cheerful staff. Breakfast and afternoon cookies were a hit!

Hubby and I had some RV issues while traveling the US. We stopped in Aiken for repairs which were going to take weeks. We found the Inn at hounds lake on trip advisor. We are thrilled with the customer service, accommodations, pricing, and location. Will definitely tell all friends and family. Definitely a hidden gem. BTW………beds are comfy……breakfast is good….night time (7pm-9pm) cookies are the best… Thanks for the thoughtfulness!

A group of eight ladies stayed here for tennis state 2022! The rooms were exceptionally clean, the front desk staff went above and beyond to help us make reservations and make us feel very welcome. The breakfast in the morning and evening cookies were superb! We will bring our husbands back for a weekend in Aiken!

Cancelled my reservation via an email that was made a month ago with no explanation. When I inquired they said all reservations during Masters week have to be made via phone and I can call and rebook for almost quadruple the original rate.

Friend and I stayed 3 days and can't say enough about the great service4, location and wonderful help by everyone. The staff took the time to stop and talk to us and made our visit a truly great experience. We will definitely go back. Our restaurant times were set up for us and they were at the best places. Even set up our tour and Marty was so wonderful we recommend her for anyone's tour. Room was great and had no problems and loved the shower. Normally hotels barely have water coming down and these were fabulous. Four stars for location, experience.

Nice place to stay. Came for a wedding. Family run with great service and access to country club amenities. Clean. I liked that is was small and homey. Decor may be dated but it’s in good shape. A good night’s sleep. Free breakfast was way better than the chain hotels.
