I recently stayed at The Carriage House Inn for an extended amount of time on a business trip. The whole staff went above and beyond to make mine and my co-workers stay great!

I spent one night at the Carriage House Inn after having an awful experience at a national chain (Holiday Inn). I called en route to the Inn to make a reservation. My reservation was taken by a very polite and welcoming employee. Upon my arrival, I was greeted with a smile and shown to my very comfortable and clean room.... 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.

A very friendly small hotel. The front portion is the old house, and the back is apparently a carriage house and a new extension. I stayed only in the front, older part. The staff is generally excellent, very genuinely friendly and helpful. A hot breakfast was served in the dining room. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious.... More

While the Carriage House Inn will appear in most B&B listings, it is more accurately a boutique hotel. The rooms are quite nice, but you might find yourself in a restored room or one of new construction. Both are very nice, but you will need to be flexible.
