My son and I stayed during a trip to Clemson and selected the hotel due to the proximity of campus. The grounds are beautiful with lots of outside seating to enjoy the lake view. Unfortunately the rooms are without any kind of sound proofing and we were next to the LOUD Family! Yelling at each other and we could hear...

I visited this property for a short business trip for a conference at the attached convention center. Hotel was very nice, very clean, and the attention to detail and upkeep was very apparent. The staff was very nice and friendly. Room had Keurig type coffee pots, very large TV and room service. Breakfast was limited to the cafe that closed...

Situated in a beautiful part of Clemson campus, with golf course and botanical gardens close by. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Fitness center is small, but well equipped. Will stay here again.

I ha've been to Clemson University last May to watch my Son graduate. It was worth the 3 hrs of watching him and his classmates graduate. I did not have the opportunity to stay, because it was a long drive home and we left on my birthday which was May 8th. Then I came back to Clemson in December of...

If you're not familiar with Clemson, and driving in the dark, this can be a hard place to find. Cherry Road and Old Stadium Road, which lead to the Madren Conference Center, have no lights, making it hard to find for drivers and challenging & dangerous for pedestrians. But the Inn is lovely, front desk staff helpful. They have a...

Best Place to stay in Clemson. The room was clean and well appointed. Love the Keurig coffee maker. What makes this hotel so wonderful is the friendly and caring staff. A room that overlooks the lake is very nice is available. Also, the suite style rooms offer two rooms, which is a plus, if one person in your party wants...

This "Inn" with it's new restaurant "Soles" is just the most relaxing place ever to catch your breath in a warm, friendly, and extremely beautiful location along the lake.

I stayed here on a Sunday night. It was during Clemson's fall break and there was no one around. There were only 5 rooms rented out for the night. I thought I might get a price break considering the fact that there was no demand for rooms, but no luck. The room was comfortable although there is little counter space...

I was there on conference travel. This place is very nice and quiet. Although to drive in at night was absolutely scary. I'm talking black out, wooded area! The Inn is situated off the main road behind trees and surrounded by a golf course. During my three day stay I never saw or heard any children playing about the building....
