The upgrade was badly needed. Rooms are modern, clean and quiet. There are lots of restaurants and shopping choices. Your on the main drag and that makes it difficult to exit and enter during high traffic. Another quest I know left a Bluetooth charging in her room one morning and after returning it was gone. Hotel staff didn't seem to... More

After a poor experience at another local hotel, and trying to find somewhere to stay in the middle of the night, I was pleased to tears to find a room at HJ.

The Hotel was LaQuinta but have upgraded to all rooms now that the name changed to Howard Johnson. They also have a good complimentary breakfast.

While I thought the price was a bit jacked up for a ballgame weekend, compared to the price listings at the same hotel for other weekends, it was a very convenient and nice place to stay. Lots of restaurants nearby and within close proximity of Clemson. The rooms were clean and overall the accommodations were totally satisfactory.

This La Quinta is 'just OK'. I have stayed at others that were much nicer. The beds were fairly comfortable. The room was fairly clean. The rate was reasonable. But, oddly enough, the taste of the water was horrible! I would not stay again just because of the water.

After experiencing a minor setback in my reservations made at another hotel, I decided to stay at la Quinta and I was not disappointed. The staff was very helpful (thanks again Amanda!), the room was reasonable, it's in a great location right in the city, and very good value for the price. I will definitely be back! :)
