From wooden gristmills to stately mansions, this South Carolina town is packed with historical landmarks.

Business Stay in Clemson
The hotel was fine and comfortable and the breakfast was pretty good. The price was OK as well. I didn't like the difficulty of finding the hotel and there was no place one could reasonably walk to[More] eat.
It would have been nice if there was a small bar for nightcaps or networking. Also I requested a mouthwash (as invited to do) and there was none.
All in all though it was fine and pretty close to things.[Less]
This is a great hotel with a great staff... They make you feel right at home..[Less]

The employees at this hotel were very nice. The guy at the desk helped me get hooked to their internet. I enjoyed this stay. If I am ever back in town I will stay their again. If you are ever in[More] Anderson, give this hotel a try. I think you will enjoy it. It is very peaceful there.[Less]
The Staff was wonderful
While I was eating breakfast the lady came by several times and asked if I needed anything. I think her name was Evette. She always seemed to busy and the breakfast had lots of choices. The rest of[More] the staff was very friendly also. I would definitely go back and like to see the property once they finished the renovations. Thanks guys for a great stay![Less]
Good service / remodeling
Stayed in this hotel previously. This trip the hotel was having some remodeling work and the only problem was that there was not a closet in the room only a small garment rack. This was more of an[More] inconvenience than a problem.[Less]
