I just stayed here for a quick overnight on a horse hunting trip. I agree with one other review that the building was a little hard to find. However, a quick call to the Inn got me friendly personal navigation to the front door. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. It had a refrigerator and microwave. The bed...

We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2017 and overall we liked this place fine even if there are some things that should be improved. We liked the central location, the relaxing atmosphere, and the bathroom products. The things that we thought could be improved were all in the room: the look of the room itself (outdated and old...

This little inn made you feel like you were at home. They went out of their way to help you with any thing you needed be it hot chocolate or printing out directions to a destination even telling you what to see or go in Aiken. It had a great view of the golf course and a country club associated...

This facility has nice, spacious well appointed rooms. The entire staff from cleaning crew, front desk staff and family owner will meet your every need. They go above and beyond your expectations. We recently stayed for over one month and enjoyed every day. There is even a new gas grill for guests to grill their own meals. The excellent complimentary...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Inn at Houndslake. Our rooms were great, the staff is more than gracious and helpful, we had access right out the door to golf and an excellent buffet at the restaurant adjoining the hotel. I believe the staff is the highlight of this place, they helped with everything. And then there is always...

The Penlands and their staff at The Inn showed our extended family, who had traveled from a wide variety of cities to visit Aiken, great service and clean, comfortable accommodations. Considering the large size of our party, we could not have been more welcomed, and the staff bent over backwards to see that our needs were met.

Our school booked this little gem of an Inn which is tucked away among some beautiful pines and other trees right on a golf course. The staff was extremely accommodating and the rooms were very spacious. This seems like it would make a great spot for a family reunion. Wished it was summer so we could have used the nice...

This is a small 30 room, old, charming Inn on a gold course. We stayed for 5 days and had a large King Studio Room (#23) overlooking what I think was the 9th green. Room was old but clean, freshly painted with new carpet and a big glass table with 4 chairs at the huge picture window. There was a...

Recently we traveled down to SC for a family funeral. Hotels in Augusta were completely booked or ridiculously expensive that week, so we decided to expand our search and check out Aiken.
