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

This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting the Clemson campus. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Only two issues with this hotel. A complimentary continental breakfast is provided with the room but it is not nearly as substantial as one provided by chain hotels such as Hampton or Holiday Inn. Also, request a room on the lake...

The Hotel is located directly on the campus of Clemson University. The front desk was extremely nice. Even called the dinning-room to tell them to stay open a little longer since we were checking in so late (10:30 pm). The suite rooms are huge and very affordable. Two queen beds, a separate living area with a pull out couch and... More

Great experience. The three times I've stayed here were all for business conferences and I'm glad this place was chosen. Great location out of the "college scene" of Clemson proper. It offers clean comfortable rooms, excellent service from staff, and very good food at the restaurant. It's also very convenient to the Clemson Golf Course which we also enjoyed. When... More

As I visited the Clemson I decided to stay on campus for location purposes and for the full college experience. I was disappointed with the hotel. It is defiantly time for a renovation and some updates. I would only stay there again for convenience but not for the atmosphere.
