Great experience, from the time you check in with Lindsey Wise to your departure. When checking in Ms Wise gave a grand tour of Carriage House, with a history lesson about the properties past. Rooms are very spacious, bath facilities seem to be extra large, all of the facilities are very clean and well organized. Breakfast is different each day...

We stayed here two nights and the rooms were quite spacious with a great little balcony off of the sitting room, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and looking at the courtyard. We were in the new addition in the back of the property so the room was in great shape. Parking in the back is a little tight...

We went there for a wedding last weekend, it was a lovely place but we were put in the only room not updated, they made it right with a free night and a surprise bottle of wine in a basket, worth a look if your going that way

Carriage House is located on Aiken's main street, next to restaurants, shops and plenty of free parking. Cheerful staff, slightly quirky rooms (but it is an inn after all) and a so-so breakfast. While not perfect, the inn is a great place from which to explore the town.

This was our third visit to the Aiken Carriage House. The facility is charming and the staff that welcomed us the first two times is still there. My wife and I would not think of staying at another property when we visit. You are within walking distance of all of downtown Aiken yet far enough away from the late night...

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...

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...
