I've been staying at this hotel for almost a week now on business and I have enjoyed every minute in the room. The property is very young and the finishes are all bright and clean. The rooms are well appointed with a microwave and refrigerator. Beds are great and they have two soft and two hard pillows for each queen... More

I stayed here on two occasions visiting Clemson, SC and both times the staff and facilities were excellent. A colleague came to pick me up one day and he remarked that he would be moving from his hotel to this one. CLEAN, organized, well kept, and modern. Worth your stay.

We have stayed all over Clemson and Anderson when visiting our daughter at school. Holiday Inn Express ranks number one. Great location - very clean - new - nice rooms - great friendly service. Priced slightly better than the Clemson Marriott Courtyard which is a close second.

I stayed here one night after dropping my child off at a camp held on the Clemson campus. It was a very clean facility and quiet. It is not located within walking distance of the campus, but I did not see a hotel that was. If you needed nearby food, there was a deli and yogurt shop across the road.... More

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.
