Old world elegance in a relaxed atmospherePosted Mar 22, 2012
Pros: The laid back feeling
Cons: The plumbing
Location: Perfect for walking into town and riding our horse in Hitchcock Woods.
From the moment we walked into the lobby to check in, we felt cared for. The hotel has an old world elegance, yet warm laid back quality. Though we loved Aiken and came to ride our horse and enjoy the town and surroundings, we found ourselves wanting to spend a lot of time at the hotel. The rooms are beautiful and the staff is friendly and helpful. The food was good and the lobby a wonderful place to hang out and play chess, people watch, listen to music. The wisteria blooming just outside of our window through the white shutters was exquisite. And the poolside was peaceful and relaxing with a gin and tonic. My whole family was very sad to leave.

Lovely!! Will be going back!Posted Dec 4, 2011
My stay at the Willcox Inn was wonderful. It's an older building but very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there.

fantastic townPosted Oct 26, 2011
If you like horses you will love Aiken. The hotel is in a great location- a short walk from the main shopping areas as well as from the large urban woodland which offers endless paths through pine- scented woods. Our only complaint would be a sub-standard breakfast and over- expensive restaurant but this was more than compensated by an unrequested upgrade to a suite because their doubles were fully booked. The beds were very comfortable and the huge bath was one of the most ergonomically comfortable I have ever used .The staff were very helpful but not over-attentive. We went to a Sunday afternoon polo match and parked next to a lovely couple who had retired to SC from Long Island and a lifetime working with horses. They explained the nuances of polo to beginners and couldn't have been more welcoming- not an experience you might expect at an English polo match.
