How do I count the ways? Oh yeah, I was put in a motel type building across the parking lot from the main hotel.
The stairwell was filthy and there was what appeared to be a used surgical glove on the floor at the top of the landing. The TV was an old tube type, but functional. The blanket on the bed had a large hole in it. Anthony Melchiorri would have had a heart attack. The room was just across the parking lot from the Tiki bar, that goes on till two o'clock. That's the last time I looked at my watch, because the clock in the room didn't work. The hotel says it's pet friendly and it is. So friendly that a barking dog was also a problem till two o'clock. Seeing I had to get up at 6:15 a.m., this was not a pleasant experience.
When asked if everything was ok by the desk clerk as I checked out, I told him No, but he didn't act as if that mattered to him.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Aiken is the perfect place to "play & stay" in downtown Aiken! Originally built in 1898 the main building of the Hotel Aiken has gone through many changes and a series of major and continuous renovations since 2001, with the accent on retaining the historical feel of this landmark building whilst providing all the modern amenities one would expect from a contemporary Hotel, such as free use of hard-wired HSIA in all rooms. We also offer more moderate accommodations in our courtyard building, where the rooms are basic, standard motel rooms. We have three on site bars, which makes Hotel Aiken one of downtown Aiken’s most popular watering holes. We have live entertainment on Wednesday-Saturday nights until 2AM and are open seven days a week. Hotel Aiken is centrally located and considered "party central" almost every day of the week. Please keep this in mind when making your reservations at our hotel. ... more less
