    This is an excellent property inside and out. It feels and evens smells like new even though it's been open for a year and a half. Beds and pillows are super comfortable. Rooms are clean and well lit. The bathroom towels are large size and soft. The fixtures are modern and easily accessible with a 110 volt plug in each lamp. You will enjoy your stay here as well as the cookies.

    My family stayed for the weekend, and it was mostly a good experience. It is new, clean, and in a good location. The guy who checked us in was friendly and got us hooked right up. There was a coffee maker and refrigerator in the room, which was nice. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. There wasn't much room between one of the beds and the wall, so had to climb in from the same side. Direct tv offered many premium channels which were great until it started storming. In fairness,...

    This hotel, which looks great, always comes up on any search as being pet friendly. But I could not find anything with any information about it (extra fees, weight of dog, etc.). So I called the hotel directly. The only pets that are welcome here, according to the staff, are service dogs. No other pets are welcome. Not really my idea of a pet friendly recommended hotel for the general public

    We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed a fabulous stay. We were fortunate as platinum members to be upgraded to a suite, which was really superb. It was exceptionally clean, very quiet and spacious with a separate lounge and kitchen area, very good indeed. All of the staff were most helpful and friendly and a special mention to Maurice and Samantha on the desk. This new hotel is a little way out of downtown Aiken but easy to get to by car and in a very quiet situation away from the busy strip. ... Read more

    I traveled with my tween daughter and we used the pool and workout center. Both were immaculate as was my room. Plenty of space and TOO many channels for us to agree on what to watch! Desk staff was helpful in arranging directions to the Aiken State Park and a canoeing trip that was ONLY $15 for both of us for the day. This included dropping off a car at the pick up site and taking us back to the entrance to the canoe and kayak trail. Quick FUN weekend trip!

    this is the second time I've stayed at this hotel during trips to SC to visit my daughter and grand daughter. This time it had rained and the pool was closed and when the rain cleared the desk clerk knew my granddaughter was coming to hang out and he opened the pool back up and made sure to let us know - the staff is always so friendly and accomodating!

    I came to Aiken on business and had to stay for almost 2 weeks. From check in to check out the staff did everything possible to make my stay pleasant. Due to a few special events happening in the area the hotel stayed fully booked most of the time that I was there. But the staff never seemed over stressed by all of the activity in the hotel.

    I travel very often for work, and almost always stay in a Holiday Inn Express. Aiken may be my new favorite. It was very clean, the breakfast seemed fresher and better than any other HIE location I've been too, and there was a beer/wine reception in the lobby the night I stayed, with food. My room was very nice, the AC was fully functioning and not motion controlled. The staff, from the front desk to the breakfast lady, were all very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely stay again.

    Our room was on the third floor and when getting off the elevator the hallway smelled musty. Room was nice but the cleaning staff didn't come and clean our room until after our second night stay because I had to call the front desk to have them send someone to do this. The breakfast food was good and the food area was nice and clean. Overall a nice place but cleaning staff somehow forgot to clean our room.
