good location for us

made plans to stay here with some reservations as it was decribed as older but remodeld. The remodeling was pretty nice, but looks like it might not hold up- at least the type of flooring in bathroom Breakfast was pretty good but run as professionally as some places and the hostess did not renew some items 15 min. before closing time- like oatmeal and eggs. She was pleasant but in ahurry to shut dwn. After she left a man came in wit dog and l him eat crumbs off the floor.

Okay for the price.

The room was clean but I have evidence to believe there was a mouse in there! When I told the front desk they just said they would have maintenance look into it. The check-in clerk was super friendly.

"A bit overrated"

It was for a family reunion,[...]. The room was very small, it had no closet no place for luggage, AC vents were below the height of bed and blocked air flow. It could have been better for the price. It was pretty much just a plain motel room except for microwave/coffee Pot/refrig. It probably took away from space from the room. Breakfast was pretty good, room was too small for the size of Motel, you had to wait for a table or to get up to the counter to get food. Cookies wer good in lobby and internet in lobby and wifi was good.They did let us use this room one night to have a hospitality room for our group, most of them stayed here. Lots of Restaurants in the area within walking.

nice weekend getaway

The room was nice. The flat screen tv had a good picture. We wish that it had more movie channels. And the bed was comfortable with lots of warm covers and we had plenty of pillows. The free breakfast buffet was very good. But really the only complaint is that the people next door were a little noisy during the night. But overall it was a very nice stay.

College Visit

Our family booked two rooms while visiting Clemson on spring break for my son's college visit. Although it is a 15 minute drive to campus, the location is a quick and easy exit off the interstate and in close proximity to many restaurants. The rooms were very clean with comfy beds and pillows (to which I am VERY particular). The breakfast passed my son's various taste tests making it a good start to a very busy day.

Spill the Beans is perhaps one of the very best ice-cream shops I have ever visited. It is located downtown Clemson...just ask the locals or any student for the exact location.
