We recently stayed at the Martin Inn while at Clemson for a college visit. It was BETTER than expected! The rooms were VERY clean. The beds were incredibly comfortable. They even upgraded us to a suite at no extra cost because they were not full that evening. We had a small kitchenette with a frig, microwave, and kitchen table... a... More

Very Clean, newly remodeled rooms. Latest decor. Fit and finish of remodeling workmanship is first rate. All the amenities you would expect from a chain, such as Marriott. Staff knowledge about Clemson, both the town and the university. Great buffett breakfast and excellent cookies in the evening. Get their early as they go quickly/

We were pleased that staff were able to move us to a lake view room, after our 1st night facing a parking lot. The patio off the room was a welcome bonus. The breakfast room with lake view is a very pleasant place to start the day with some hot or cold options,, not much fruit, a selection of tea... More

We reserved a suite with our 4 young children. When we checked in, that didn't show on the reservation. George at the front desk was so friendly that by the end of our trip that one night didn't matter. We got a suite the next day. The staff chatted with us as we came and went. They worked with us...

This is a Green hotel, which while highly commendable, guests need to know that the lighting in the rooms is very, very dim. More so than any Green hotel I've ever stayed in. If you plan to do any reading bring an incandescent or higher wattage compact fluorescent bulb with you. The lighting in the bathroom is fine, but at... More

Lol, I'm not a Tigers fan, but this is a great place. Clean and well laid out. Right on campus and lots of parking. The people/staff are kind and went out of their way to make my stay the very best. I was very surprised to see the outdoors, paved sidewalks and nicely kept grounds.

I stay at the Martin Inn 5 or 6 times per year. Always my preferred place to stay. I reviewed the Martin Inn after a stay in May that was less than ideal. I am happy to say the staff has addressed the concerns. A heartier breakfast is now provided and the noise from the outside A/C unit was gone... More

Im very happy that we chose to stay here. The facilities are very impressive as the hotel is connected to a conference center and to a restaurant. The rooms are very nice and ours came with a private patio. We have yet to really explore the campus but the hotel seems to be tucked into a corner of the campus.... More

I had originally booked one of the chain hotels on Tiger Blvd and changed my mind at the last minute to find something with more personality. I was so glad I did! The lovely grounds and the beautiful sunset on the lake alone were worth it. It's very serene. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and the rooms were first rate.... More
