“Great Clemson Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

I stayed here on two occasions visiting Clemson, SC and both times the staff and facilities were excellent. A colleague came to pick me up one day and he remarked that he would be moving from his hotel to this one. CLEAN, organized, well kept, and modern. Worth your stay.

We have stayed all over Clemson and Anderson when visiting our daughter at school. Holiday Inn Express ranks number one. Great location - very clean - new - nice rooms - great friendly service. Priced slightly better than the Clemson Marriott Courtyard which is a close second.

I stayed here one night after dropping my child off at a camp held on the Clemson campus. It was a very clean facility and quiet. It is not located within walking distance of the campus, but I did not see a hotel that was. If you needed nearby food, there was a deli and yogurt shop across the road. The hotel does not have a much-needed sign on the highway, and it is tucked behind an old Days Inn. We drove past the hotel numerous times before we finally saw it. We felt the hotel was reasonably priced and provided a comfortable night's stay. I, however, cannot recommend any eating establishments on College Ave in Clemson. We had a terrible lunch followed by a terrible dinner. I would recommend eating in another town.

Dear packliteFl0rida,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Guest feedback is greatly appreciated!
We are very sorry you couldn't find us right away, due to city regulations we are not able to put an entrance sign out onto the highway. I deeply apologize! We do hope every need was fulfilled in your stay with us. If you are in town and stay with us again, come by the desk and we will be happy to suggest some great restaurants for you and your family. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon!

I stayed here with my parents and my youngest brother. We were watching basketball at SWU. Everything is easy to locate! The staff is so helpful and made sure my family and I had whatever we wanted! I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room and the hotel grounds too!

My HiEX reviews are usually very favorable, but this one was really average. Nice common area. Grossly undersized parking spaces in the oddly laid-out lot. Had to repair sliding shower doors. Friendly folks at the front desk.

Last night was our 1st time staying at this particular location. Its idea to the great football fans who attend the Clemson games in the fall. Just minutes to Death Valley, and the university.
Slightly hidden behind the Days Inn, you do have to turn on to Pressley Drive to get into the entrance of the HIE.
Its very modern, and check in was fast and easy. Our room was nice and clean, but for some reason they gave us a handicap room. We didn't know that until we got to our room. But it was fine. The only problem I had with the room was our bathroom had some minor repairs that needed to be done.
There's a continental breakfast in the hotel that was... ok.. I suppose.
Things like.. pancakes, biscuits, gravy, fruit, sausage and eggs and more.
In the basement, which we didn't get to use (no time)- there was a nice indoor pool and small workout fitness room.
So other than that, our stay was fine and I would stay here again.


(see photo for our actual room)

Room Tip: we used priceline for the very 1st time ever...saved $30

It's been a long time since I've stayed in a HI property and I was pleasantly surprised. Beautifully decorated, up to date, and very clean. Love how they offer firm and soft pillows with labels. Breakfast was good. The entire Clemson area is currently having water issues and the water smells and tastes funny so the orange juice (made from concentrate) should be avoided. We would def stay here again, very good value.
