Recent guest reviews

Stayed at hotel while in town on business. The staff was friendly. The rooms were spacious. Truly. Enjoyed stayed at this hotel. Michele was extremely sweet. Conveniently located to many restaurants. Great value.

This property is in a hotel cluster off 85. It is pretty quiet and it's the farther from the interstate so that helps reduce road noise. The A/C worked fine - but it's an old school unit with controls on the unit itself so there's no actual temperature control - just warmer or colder. Plus, if you want the system on for white noise you don't get any temp control. That said, it worked fine for me in October when the temperature outside was nice.The wifi fine. At check in the night clerk was very focused on a series of forms he wanted signed. I'm guess that this must be a popular spot when there are Clemson games. There was a form to sign that I understood there were no parties allowed - no drugs - etc etc with a warning that anyone violating the policies would be kicked out with no refund. Since I was there for business on a Monday night it seemed like overkill - but not a problem. If that's indicative of weekend crowd then maybe this wouldn't be the best spot. On a Monday night it was quiet. I'm guess that they do not get a lot of IHG elites here - or if they do then there is a need for some additional training. There was no welcome - no welcome points or water etc like in most Holiday Inn properties. The night I was there it was just a night clerk worried about getting forms signed. The next morning I arranged for an extended checkout because I had a conference call at 11. The housekeeping guy banged on the door - I don't mean knocked - he started by knocking and the clicking thing they do with their card key. But I was on the phone and couldn't get to the door. So then it escalated to fist banging and yelling to open the door. It was like an episode of Cops. I had to pause my call and go to the door and tell him to go away. It was around 11:30 am and I had arranged a noon checkout. Apparently housekeeping is either unaware - or perhaps that behavior ties into the forms that must be signed at check-in and they are accustomed to having to waken guests. Whatever the reason, it was quite unsettling. The suite itself was smallish - but decent. Only one tv - not one in front of bed and a second in front of the sofa. That's not a problem - but again a little unusual. The room had decent lighting. The bathroom has good space. It was shower only - no tub. I would say that it was a little tight for two people to get ready at the same time but possible. I found the bed a little uncomfortable. That's going to vary by person but I think I'm an average guy and I stay in a fair number of hotel without a problem - so for what it's worth I found it to be too hard. Others I'm sure will find it to be fine. There is a Wendy's and a Fatz within walking distance and other food options in the cluster - plus gas stations etc so lots of convenience options. As a footnote - I discovered that the review that I left back in October was deleted - I don't know why - but I have to assume that the property didn't like it and got it deleted. I'm leaving it again but I checked my confirmation to make sure that I had the right property and the address matches where I stayed and my notes made that day.

I stay here every time I have to do work around Anderson or Clemson. Easy access from the highway, with plenty of choices for food within walking distance. This is always my go to place. Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice size parking lot (which is helpful since I have a 26' trailer that goes everywhere with me), the usual Holiday Inn breakfast that starts at 6am.

Clean room and very friendly staff. Well appointed room with strong WiFi. Pretty quite property with good amenities. Breakfast was okay, just wish eggs had better texture. Some properties have gone to individually wrapped little omelets which are better. Hard boiled eggs were rubbery. Lots of places to eat around this property and with in 10 minutes.

Hotel was replacing carpet in hallways and looks much better. Carpet in the rooms could use same update. Beds were comfortable, sheets and towels very clean. Hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful.

The hotel is nice and clean, just as you would exist from a Holiday Inn Express. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They are doing some updates on the upper floors, but we never noticed any noise or interruptions. They even changed our sheets every day.

The sofa bed mattress was just awful--even for my 10 year old! Mattresses were not great but ok for one night. Room was clean and staff was friendly. I would have rated this a 4 or 5 for a holiday inn express - if the mattresses were better.

This place is ok. It's clean and close to quite a few places to eat. It's convenient for one night stays and car rental places are just down the road. The walls are a little thin and everything is just a bit worn. I'm sure it's up for renovation soon.

We stay at Holiday Inns every time we travel if possible. The front desk was very professional and welcoming. Our room was perfect. I even called for a extra blanket and it was delivered in minutes. After a long day of driving it's refreshing to be treated so well.

Spent two nights here for business travel. Convenient location. Clean, quiet, comfortable rooms. Breakfast was Ok. Free wi-fi. No problems with my stay and would stay again if business travel brings me back.
