The staff was very accommodating and we had a really nice stay at this hotel. It is convenient to the university and the room was clean and comfortable. This is our second say and we will definitely look forward to coming back.

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!

I stayed one night after Clemson move in weekend. It was a Sunday evening. The inn is lovely, Very comfortable and clean room. Nicely renovated. My room had a wonderful view. I thought the front desk staff was kind and helpful. The breakfast the next day was an added bonus I hope to return again.

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding which was taking place at the hotel, and had a suite. I could not believe how large the room was. Three separate sinks in our room alone. Very large bathroom with large shower. The beds were very nice and comfortable. The free breakfast was just okay, the staff at the restaurant was... More

Best kept secret in Clemson, the James Martin Inn offers stylish (recently beautifully updated) suites and rooms with luxurious bedding, high quality toiletries, and great public areas and views of the golf course and the lake. The restaurant has improved, with a better selection and quality of items on the menu. Breakfast is good and includes hot items, but you... More

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.
