We stayed here for one night, but wish we would have stayed for two. Superior room in every way, including comfort, quality, and cleanliness. Friendly and accommodating staff. It will be nice to have the restaurant open in the spring. I highly recommend!

This is the second or third time we have stayed here while in Clemson for a Football game. Since our last stay...the rooms have been renovated. They were always nice but now even better. Bedding is outstanding and the bathrooms are spacious. Service at the hotel is great. Only slightly negative thing to say is that the food service for... More

The room was very clean. We enjoyed a nice view of the lake from the room. The breakfast offered was a little above average. The view from the dining area is great - the lake and golf course. There were nice walking and seating areas outside but unfortunately it was too hot when we stayed to take advantage of them.... More

We had tickets to a Clemson game and decided to stay on campus. The location is great. We were able to walk to the tailgate and stadium. The hotel offers a shuttle but it didn't leave until 11:00 for a 12:30 game. We asked if it could leave earlier for tailgaters or just to see the Tiger Walk (team walking... More

This is a very nice hotel. We stayed in a room overlooking the lake and golf course, that was very nicely appointed. The room had two queen beds that slept awesome. Pillows are flat, but two together make it ok. The use of Clemson colors in the decor makes it a neat experience.

Visited here for a work lunch with a very pleasant waterfront view. Are & worked on deck facing Lake Hartwell. Tasty food, friendly service & guest Wifi. When you can combine great food, service, water view & get work done; this is a win win. I will certainly be back!
