After a terrible experience at a previous hotel, my family came here at the last minute in hopes for somewhere to stay. Upon arrival we immediately noticed how neat and clean it was and the classical music playing was very relaxing. The ladies at the front desk were incredibly welcoming and very helpful. They were very understanding of our problems... More

I have stayed at the Martin Inn on several business occasions, and the rooms, event site, views, and food never disappoint. If you are staying at he Martin Inn during the week and on business, the room prices will shock you, in a good way. If you are an avid golfer you will also adore this hotel. It's a win-win... More

Recently stayed there for my son's orientation at Clemson University. The staff were very friendly, and were able to accommodate my request for a better view - of the lake. The room was clean, spacious and overall very quiet. The only down side was the noise of the air conditioner going on and off all night. The bed was comfortable.... More

Stayed two nights during college orientation. Our room was nicely remodeled, clean and very comfortable. Beautiful location right on the lake and next to the golf course. The breakfast buffet and restaurant were respectable, but not fantastic. Overall, Inhighly recommend and will definitely be coming back again.

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

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

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
