I stayed here with my parents and my youngest brother. We were watching basketball at SWU. Everything is easy to locate! The staff is so helpful and made sure my family and I had whatever we wanted! I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room and the hotel grounds too!

My HiEX reviews are usually very favorable, but this one was really average. Nice common area. Grossly undersized parking spaces in the oddly laid-out lot. Had to repair sliding shower doors. Friendly folks at the front desk.

Last night was our 1st time staying at this particular location. Its idea to the great football fans who attend the Clemson games in the fall. Just minutes to Death Valley, and the university. Slightly hidden behind the Days Inn, you do have to turn on to Pressley Drive to get into the entrance of the HIE. Its very modern,... More

It's been a long time since I've stayed in a HI property and I was pleasantly surprised. Beautifully decorated, up to date, and very clean. Love how they offer firm and soft pillows with labels. Breakfast was good. The entire Clemson area is currently having water issues and the water smells and tastes funny so the orange juice (made from... More

I have had good experience at other holiday inn express hotels and this one had good reviews so decided to try it with a last minute need to stay near Clemson university.

Seems to be a very new hotel, right off of 123 (be aware entrance is actually off a road that turns off of 123). Rooms were clean, but while we were visiting we had to move rooms due to emergency repairs being done on bottom floor...which is fine, except instead of being told of our needing to move rooms, our...

Stayed one night on business, June 12th. Get the suite, the extra room is worth a few more bucks. Great welcome , with cookies and the hotel was spotless. One if the better breakfasts I have had at a hotel where breakfast is included. Great location if you want to be near the college.

We stayed Fri-Sun for a tennis tournament @ Holiday Inn Express. It is a clean, quiet place but kind of a hidden property. Its hard to see it off the road and you can easily miss it. Hotel is clean, beds are average and property is nice.

Robbin should be nominated for employee of the month. Absolutely had to have a fax sent by 12:30 am one night. She went out of her way to get this done. Such a nice person. Please stay at this hotel on her behalf.
