Halloween Weekend

We loved staying in downtown Aiken, but the hotel had a few drawbacks. The wi-fi never worked and the television only had very limited channels. There were multiple bars nearby with LOUD music and fun partying going on. Basically, we had a good time, but wished those couple of things had been better. The front desk workers were outstanding, going out of their way to accommodate anything we wanted, including trying to find us a room with a microwave and mini refrigerator. I appreciated their efforts!

Pros: location
Cons: see above
Hotel needs a major update. Despite we had physical showed up and let the staff know we were in town - 2 hours before check in - ( we did not expect to occupy), the hotel staffer did not check us in and our room was not cleaned that day for us to occupy when we retuned. We were assigned another room, but not where we had expected. Each time there was a problem, we were told the staff member was newly hired. Our room was not cleaned on the 2nd day we were there. I had to go to the front desk to get towels.None of the TV channels matched the #'s on the TV. Most of the advertised channels were not available. Hotel TV could not get PBS or CBS. WE were told something was wrong with their Direct TV. Free WiFi was advertised in all rooms, but it was not strong enough to use and we were told to use the Aiken Free WiFi from the lobby. Most of the front desk staff was nice and tried to be helpful, but we were disappointed.

Hotel Aiken

Beautiful historic hotel, WILD nightlife at the Polo Tavern, Excellent hot breakfast buffet included in room rate. But - if you're travelling w/ young kids, no pool, not a real kids environment. It took about 10 min for hot water to reach our room once the water was turned on. The room itself was not well-restored as it could've been for the price. Location for town/ horse events is excellent. All employees/service excellent. If just my husband and I , I'd come back again, but not w/ kids.
