Just tear it down and start over! I have never experienced such a horrible evening. Choice Hotels should dump this dump from their grouping. It was worst than Goldilocks trying to find her bed. All 4 rooms I walked in smelled awful, smoky and animal smells abound. The last one, was the handicapped room. Took a shower and walked out...

For starters, the hotel is tired and dirty and in need of a major renovation. What repiars they tried to do were shoddy at best. I originally booked for a 2 night stay with the understanding that our room was available for an additional night if needed. I called the next day to add an additional night and the person...

Staff seemed a bit stiff but we had a clean, quiet smoking room and took advantage of the hot/cold breakfasts. It's a good location, convenient to downtown Aiken. Would have no problem staying here again or recommending this motel.

Three of us stayed at this hotel for two nights recently while attending the Masters in nearby Augusta, GA. This was an "any port in a storm" situation, because hotel rooms in the area this week of the year are hard-to-find and, of course, prices are jacked up accordingly. We paid about three times the normal rate. 1) When we...

Stayed here for 2 months back in 2013 and i haven't had a worse experience since. Hotel staff were rude and unprofessional. One of the employees got offensive with me over towels ( which are small anyway). They have frequent floods in their rooms and do not address the issue or offer compensation. My belongings got soaked including my laptop...

Over the last 3 years many things have changed at the hotel. Please come back and stay with us to see for yourself. We look forward to seeing you again.

Reviewed 2 March 2016 via mobile

definitely more along the lines of a "motel" than a hotel. We reserved a "non-smoking room but were welcomed by the stench of a freshly smoked cigarette when we opened the door. We were told that we were "definitely given a non-smoking room but that the rooms below us were smoking so......." I'd like to say that the rooms were...

Our first room was not cleaned. The 2nd room we were given had a trashcan under the pipe from the sink because the pipe was broken, the carpet was wet, and the frig. didn't work. The 3rd room they gave us had what looked like a massive blood stain on the carpet, palmetto bugs, and the carpet was damp feeling...

This was a nice quiet stay for most nights, but on the nights when they they started to book up, it got noisy because of the contractors who were staying overnight. We had one of the back rooms so it was quite pleasant. The only problem I ran into was whoever had the room prior to us had moved the...

We arrived at this hotel and were greeted by a green swimming pool and dirty rooms. We were scheduled to stay at this hotel for 5 nights for the Dixie Boys World Series. Let me tell you how bad it was. The City of Aiken scheduled us to stay here with the allure of 5 free rooms for our team....
