Please charge $5 more to get cable. I only stayed one night but it happened to be on college basketball championship night. I had to keep tuning channels up and down because if you put in channel 31 and switch to another channel channel 31 will not show up until you stroll though channels again.

I enjoyed everything about this hotel. The price is great :), The décor is beautiful, the room was clean, everyone was very friendly. The bed was my favorite part! I loved the high bed, it was very comfy and kind of fun to "climb" into. For someone that has difficulty getting around this may not be the best, but for us it was awesome. It is close to a couple of nice dinner restaurants and shops. I will definitely be staying here the next time we are in town!

I found this Holiday Inn to be clean. There is the smell and signs of fresh paint. Maintenance and upgrades are being done. The irritating thing, and I blame the architect, is there is a big a/c unit blocking my view. Architects of the world, you can do better!! My a/c was cold. The bed thick and comfy. I had 4 king pillows of various thickness for my comfort. The bathroom was attractive and clean. And finally I’m in a wide chair enjoying my high definition big tv.

Staff was very nice. Bedsheets had hair on them and didn't appear clean. Lampshade by bed had mildew on it. Hotel had an overall appearance of not being very clean. Breakfast was nothing to be desired. We have stayed at this hotel several times and have never had a very good experience.

This hotel has probably be a good hotel years ago but it is too old now. The heating system is obsolete and very very noisy...which is an issue during the night. It is so old that it leaked in my room and the carpet was all wet during 2 days... to dry it they put an additionnal fan inside my room !!! Breakfast is not great neither. Not so much choice. And 2 training machines among 4 were broken all week in the fitness room... Not a great experience at all !

Very accommodating for a large group, there were 27 of us in town to play Clemson in men's soccer. Breakfast was incredible and Gerri and the staff do an amazing job providing delicious food and service. Fitness center was decent with free weights and a few treadmills and exercise bikes. The pool is super nice especially considering it was late October. Quiet hotel with plenty of restaurants nearby should you wish to dine out. Only about 20-30 mins from Clemson so great location. Thanks to everyone at the hotel for their help! Cookies at the front desk were an awesome touch!

Stayed the week for a business trip. This is not my first time at this hotel. Upon arrival Sunday night was given a dirty room. The towels were laid out and bed was made but the floors and walls of bathroom were filthy and had hair from last guest in the room. Then checked the bed sheets which also had some hair. I got checked into a different, cleaner room without any problems. If this was all that happened this week I would not bother leaving a review, in fact if this was all that had happened I would not mind staying at this hotel again either as these things tend to happen. The second day I left the do not clean sign in my door key slot. When I returned to my room I noticed an electronic item and its charging case (both of which were in two different locations in my bedroom) missing from my belongings. I searched the room, I searched my personal belongings, I even invited the night manager to assist me in my search. (By the way, the night manager, John, was one of the only polite individuals throughout this entire exchange) he notified the management team and they "tried" to investigate the problem by asking housekeeping if anyone has seen this. I asked for an electronic key log of people coming and going and they do not have this system in place. I must admit that it is my own fault for not properly hiding my electronics, thinking that a do not clean sign would suffice to tell someone to not enter my room- which by the way, another member of the management team was quick to assure me that housekeeping are told not to enter into rooms with do not disturb signs. Gee. Thanks. Overall, I will do a better job of protecting my valuables, but i haven't decided if I should go back to this hotel let alone this hotel chain. The entire experience leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

Holiday inn express 3509 Clemson Blvd. Great hotel experience except i was quoted a rate then as per this hotels pricing the rate increased each day. My company has instructed me to stay elsewhere for my next 2 stays in Anderson

Started really great the girl at the front desk saved me and bailed me out from my very horrible experiences at quality inn across the street. The two stars are completely for the girl that saved me on Friday. I would give 5 stars, I would give that girl five stars easy, great customer service very professional very polite two thumbs up. But then came night three, the night shift manager managed to lock my family in the pool area at 2140 when the pool was supposed to close at 2200. He did not look around to see if anyone was in there he just locked the gate there by expecting my family to climb a concrete wall to get out of the pool area and to get to the emergency phone that was on the outside of the concrete wall. When I informed the manager that he had locked my family in the pool area he seemed perturbed and disgruntled because I had interrupted his dinner at 2140 when the pool officially closes at 2200. When I return to my room at 2230 I noticed the air conditioner was not working I called the desk to report the issue and then I plugged in a bunch of wires that I found under a table and the air conditioner came on. When the same night shift manager came in my room that locked my family in the pool area he looked at the jumble of wires said yes that's the problem and then he walked out leaving the door open. Here I sit 25 minutes later not hearing anything back from the night shift manager and wondering if I should unplug the wires because the place may burn down? Today is Monday 28AUG2017.

What a pleasant surprise..One of the best hotels I've been in for a while. They let me get an early check in when I arrived a little early. The restaurant was only serving Lasagna an I couldn't eat so they let me just get a Caesar salad from the buffet and didn't even charge me. The bar is lively and the bartender ANGEL lives up to her name. Front check in was easy and fast. Room service was really good. It probably was one of the friendliest hotels I have been to in recent memory. Thanks to everyone there I saw the eclipse with a lot of fun guests
