First visit to South Carolina and I could not have stayed at a better hotel. The staff there is what all hotels should aspire to be. I left my phone charger there is was sent to me. Free of charge! And cookies in the main house is not to be missed!

We spent one night here. Check in was smooth and friendly. The inn has expanded and the new rooms have a modern feel. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast options were quiche plus fruit or eggs and bacon with a selection of homemade baked goods. All in all great value!!

We decided to visit Aiken and were pleased to find a room available at this charming Inn. I had seen it on my last visit to Aiken and was Aiken to stay. Staff was wonderful...a few hickups but nothing to detract from the charm and hospitality. We will be back.

This is my second visit to the CHI. The staff bends over backwards to help in any way they can. As mentioned breakfast is tasty, but as they admit, you don't have as many options as local restaurants. The rooms are roomy and comfortable. The TV has many channels. This charming Inn is centrally located in Aiken with many shops... More

We were given a good nightly rate....BUT, the bed was "rock-hard!" Breakfast was supposed to begin at 07:00. The breakfast staff was about 20-minutes late and hard a rough time getting in-gear. Only two staff showed up which was woefully inadequate to wait on hungry customers that had appointments to keep. The cook seemed a bit overwhelmed yet, she tried... More

We stayed here three nights. It is conveniently located in downtown Aiken. The room and bathroom were spacious. The lighting in the bathroom could have been brighter over the vanity (there was none). This is a green hotel, which is fine. However, housekeeping never put out fresh drinking glasses. And, facial wipes were provided so you could wipe off your... More

Nice place, nice people, clean room, simple but decent breakfast, and if you find yourself in Aiken, then this is the place to be. I travel quite often, but I must admit that I'm not very familiar with the bed and breakfast experience.
